Empowering Native American Youth

This year we have implemented several new programs that not only inspire and motivate, but also challenge our youth to take action and become leaders.
 
Aug. 5, 2010 - PRLog -- THE BACK 2 SCHOOL TOUR

Kick this new school year off right!
The RezHeadz Entertainment Group is gearing up for another amazing Back 2 School Tour!

Smoke’s energetic presentations were created to inspire Leadership, Self esteem, Academic Achievement, Bonding to School, and the Importance of Education.

These programs were developed to increase self-worth, a positive sense of identity, moral character, and to improve your student’s social and emotional growth.

This year we have implemented several new programs that not only inspire and motivate, but also challenge our youth to take action and become leaders.  As many of you know Hip-Hop music has been looked upon with skepticism, not only in Native communities but abroad. Truth be told, many people often ignore the positive messages of hip-hop and only focus on the negative.
Fact: In the last 10 years hip-hop has cut across ethnic boundaries and now studies show that music with positive messages is a very effective tool in educating our youth.
We here at RezHeadz have found a way to tap into the core of the subculture and educate to a new tune!  Featuring Award Winning Recording Artist and Motivational Speaker Jason "Smoke" Nichols.

In a recent interview with "Smoke" he unveils the man behind the music, “Hip Hop is a portal that bridges the gaps; it gives the youth an upbeat outlook on change. Academic achievement, entrepreneurship, dedication, perseverance and the importance of setting goals, all of these virtues if applied will set a standard in Native country and ultimately boost morale amongst our young people.”  Smoke

SMOKE'S BIOGRAPHY
      Jason “Smoke” Nichols (Nakota/ Chippewa Cree) is a multiple award winning motivational speaker, chart topping recording artist, successful business owner, and to add to his list of accomplishments, he is in the process of completing his first book entitled “Where there is Smoke.”

Smoke is a dynamic performer and contagious motivational speaker.  He engages his audience and inspires with humor and clarity as well as a practical example for positive action.  He motivates people to find greatness within themselves and teaches them to share these qualities with others.

He inspires our native youth to harness their full potential without bowing to peer pressure and shows that through perseverance and dedication one can gain freedom from fear and destroy discouragement.

Smokes’ presentation describes memorable experiences for his success, which include strategies for dealing with stress and abstaining from drug and alcohol use.

Earlier this year a tragedy occurred that changed Smokes’ life forever.  Suicide in and by itself is a tragic event, and after the loss of someone so close to him he has dedicated himself to the mission of suicide prevention.

Delivering a combination of personal experience, prevention and recovery, Smoke invites audiences behind closed doors where he provides a message of spirituality, inspiration, and emotional health.

If you are interested in bringing Smoke to your community, dates are available as early as July 2010.
