Nahko Bear here! Apache/Puerto Rican/Filipino descent, singer of Nahko and Medicine for the People, activist, and storyteller. AMA!
Hey Reddit! I’m the singer of Nahko and Medicine for the People. We are a musical collective and strive to be the motivation and inspiration for all members of our Tribe. I’m of Apache, Puerto Rican & Filipino descent. I’ve moved all over the United States and found my current home in Hawaii. I strive to raise awareness for Native and Indigenous communities. Music has always been my passion. I learned to play piano when I was 9 and never looked back. I have been able to work through my challenging past with the storytelling abilities I learned in Alaska and Medicine for the People. I like to break down people’s walls with music and honest, raw storytelling. We’re currently on tour in the US and about to embark on our first European tour later this month with our EU album release.
Here’s PROOF it’s me.
Let’s do this, Reddit! Ask Me Anything!
EDIT: Thanks for all your questions, Tribe! I'll try to jump in later & answer some more. This was fun. Let's do it again soon.
