NAN Presents Supaman

 

October 31, 2018



Award-winning Native American dancer and hip hop artist Supaman will be performing in Glasgow next week as part of the 2018-2019 Big Sky Series presented by the Northeastern Arts Network. The concert will be in the Glasgow High School Auditorium at 7 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Supaman, the stage name of Christian Takes Gun Parrish, is a member of the Apsaalooke tribe who uses hip hop music to empower his audiences and spread a message of hope and faith. His art combines Native American culture, comedy and urban hip hop. He motivates, encourages and inspires through music and dance, all of which gives him a platform to educate on indigenous issues. Through motivational speaking, creative writing workshops, trainings, and school assemblies, he shares his story and messages of hope and healing.

Among his awards are a MTV VMA in 2017, a Native American Music Award, North American Indigenous Image Award, seven Tunney Awards, and The Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Award in Canada. He has performed for Google in San Francisco and danced in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. He has toured throughout the United States and internationally. Currently, Supaman is working with Taboo, of the Black Eyed Peas, on a project with his group Mag7.

Tickets for the performance are available at the door. Prices are $15 for adults, $13 for Seniors, and $10 for students.

The Big Sky Series is made possible in part by the Montana Performing Arts Consortium Presenter Development Program which is supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Montana Arts Council, and legislative grant from Montan’s Cultureal Trust, and the Western States Art Federation.
