Frank Waln (Lakota) is from the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. As a Native rap artist, Frank Waln released his song “What Makes the Redman Red” on December 29, 2015. As citizen of the Rosebud Lakota, this day is December is especially relevant. On this date in 1890, over 250 Lakota people were brutally killed by the American military at Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. This one of many instances of genocide committed by Americans was completed after the soldiers collected the frozen dead bodies from an area that stretched across the land for four square miles and buried them in a mass grave.
Playing on a song from Disney’s Peter Pan with its inherent images and representations about Native Americans from the colonial lens of dominant culture, Waln transforms What Makes the Redman Red into a song with powerful messages that reflect an indigenous perspective on American history.
