Supaman to perform free concert at BFHS

November 8, 2023

In honor of November’s Native American Heritage month, the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho is proud to sponsor a free community concert performed by the national touring artist known as "Supaman," Christian Takes Gun Parrish, a Native American dancer and innovative hip hop artist who has dedicated his life to empowering and spreading a message of hope, pride and resilience through his original art form.

He has been nominated for and won several music awards and is currently on a national tour spreading the good medicine of resiliency, love, laughter and inclusion.

As a member of the “Apsaalooke Nation”, Supaman makes his home on Apsáalooke lands in Montana, the child of parents who struggled with alcoholism. Supaman spent part of his childhood in foster care before being raised by his mother.

He began DJing in the 90s after hearing a Litefoot song. In the fourth grade, Christian began dancing at powwows. While in elementary school, he began to write poetry and later began to rap. He related to rap music because he felt he was going through the same issues that most artists were rapping about. Taking the name "Supaman" at the spur of the moment in a DJ competition, he began rapping in a more original style until he had a spiritual encounter that told him to live a better lifestyle and rap about more meaningful and inspirational topics.

Supaman’s one-of-a-kind presentation combines Native culture, comedy and urban hip hop culture which dazzles audiences and captivates listeners. For this he has gained the respect of his community and generation. The communicative talent along with the compassion that exudes from his music allows him to connect with people from all walks of life.

His uncanny ability to motivate, encourage, and inspire through dance, and hip-hop music keeps him at the forefront among his contemporaries which gives him a platform to educate on Indigenous issues.

This free concert takes place at 6 p.m. Monday, November 27, in the Becker Auditorium at Bonners Ferry High School. The show is suitable for all ages.
