Nahko & Medicine For The People
Nahko & Medicine For The People
so many dear people helped me write and live these stories. the two summers i spent in alaska, half the winter in louisiana and the other half holed up in my van in portland, and then the first year in hawaii were transformational and pivotal to shaping me into who i am today. those 3 years before i met my mother would offer a reclaiming of my name, finding new faith and fever for my own spiritual connection to Creator, and discovering first love. these were just a few of the important discoveries for a young cub set on exploring the world and finding himself amongst the wild.

The new wave of hip-hop has arisen a woke generation. From it, Xiuhtezcatl — seventeen-year-old Indigenous rapper and activist — has emerged, stirring the comatose with his music.

From performing at the Standing Rock encampment with Immortal Technique and Nahko to leading the Youth v. Gov. lawsuit against the Federal Government, Xiuhtezcatl’s actions show his music is more than words.

Xiuhtezcatl grew up immersed in the indigenous Aztec traditions of his father and advocating for social and environmental justice with his mother.

Recently Xiuhtezcatl performed before the U.N. General Assembly, collaborated on stage and in the studio with Jaden Smith and Bassnectar, and appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Additionally, he wrote the best-selling book, We Rise, and is featured in the next iconic series by Shepard Fairey, We The Future.
