Newest REBELMANN Single “Indian Land” Expected to Spark Controversy
Teen rock band writes powerful, thought-provoking song about America’s First Nations
"Indian Land" sings of a way of life for America's first nations - Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet and more - against a struggle of invaders who take their land and suffocate a culture that hails the spirits, man, beast, wind, and sea as one. Where no more is taken than is needed, versus a new society that takes everything, at all costs, in the name of Manifest Destiny. The struggle is not over.
"Indian Land" bucks the norm with a provocative 6.23 minutes of playing time. REBELMANN® also has a planned shortened version for release; the longer version recognizing the Massacre at Wounded Knee not once, but twice. The first massacre in 1890 left as many as 300 men, women, and children of Spotted Elk's band buried in a mass grave on the Lakota Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota. The second being the 1973 standoff and uprising, which brought intense media attention to the injustice of the Native American, and tragically left a U.S. Marshall, amongst others, dead.
"Indian Land" is an in-your-face, thought-provoking lyrical prose. REBELMANN's intent is to tell the full story; the truth as it is to this day for America's First Nations, especially those living on the harsh plains simply known as Pine Ridge. The song captures their struggle to survive, and their desire to be recognized and validated on their reservation lands, which have more regulations and red tape than a nuclear power plant. These harsh conditions still result in people freezing to death on the Great Plains. “Indian Land” makes you think and feel something very real. REBELMANN® has delivered.
