The video will be available on Youtube pages for: Modern Day Indian Territory & Native Music Online.

I want to say a special thank you to my brother, Justin Fultz. Today would’ve been very difficult without his help!

Thanks to Edwin Marshall for giving me the opportunity to document and record a historic moment and event.

Thanks to the Wetumka Indian Baptist church for hosting this historic event.

Thanks to the Creator for such a beautiful & extremly hot day. But, it brought back memories of watching the elders from when I grew up. It showed the strength our ancestors had walking the trail of tears to get to their new home, the struggles they had being killed, raped, beaten, and burglarized of their belongings.

Thanks to my family, Aunt Fuzzy, Momma Carolyn, my lovely wife Angela and daughter Meeka for sharing me on my birthday so I could do something I loved doing. Plus it doesn’t hurt when you get a great homecooked dinner with cake and ice cream!

This video/ documentary will be available for free. There are no special screenings or charges. Due to the historic nature of this event, I wanted to make available for everyone to watch, learn, participate & remember. If you would like to make a donation, we appreciate it but it is not required.

Worship In Creek

The Tulsa Word published a story about Mvskoke Creek Hymns. I grew up listening to these same hymns and they hold a place near to my heart. I still have the song book my Auntie gave me and I intend to share these songs with my little one. We take our language for granted, I know I did. Our grandparents were forced to residential school and were punished for speaking in their native Language. Lets do our part to keep these songs and our languages alive!

Artist Spotlight: StenJoddi

StenJoddi Is an enrolled member of the Mvskoke Creek Nation of Oklahoma. He is One of the most prolific Underground Native HipHop artist that has been making a real name for himself. StenJoddi (which means “Native” in the Mvskoke Creek Language) Became a fan of music early in his life from Rock & Country influences being raised in Oklahoma. His love for music had drawn him close to hiphop in his preteen aged years & on. Because of the stories that were told in the songs he seemed to relate to them a lil more than the country or rock that he was raised on. 

Soon after falling in love with hiphop he created a burning desire within himself to begin crafting his own style & lyrics. StenJoddi’s clever wordplay, storytelling, effortless flow, & distinct tone set him apart from the crowded field of up & coming new “rap” artists nationwide. Even more importantly, StenJoddi gives a voice to a unique, untold story & struggle that hiphop has been blind to…growing up & surviving as a Native!!!!

As he has been reaching high goals for his music career he has been hitting the road with his dope stage performances all over the map. From performing live at the Tulsa State Fair in his home state of Oklahoma in 2014 to every small bar & club up in down the mid-west. He has been really making noise in his now home town of Mason City, Iowa where he works as a Tattoo Artist & lives with his family.
