In a day and age when lots of performers claim to be Cherokee, it is always best to verify those claims. There are many actors, actresses, and singers who claim Cherokee blood, but never offer up the proof to back up their claims. For those of you who have the desire to support true, documented Cherokee performers, I will, from time to time, feature them here.
Today I would like to feature Litefoot. He grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and he is a registered member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. He's a good artist and has used his celebrity to encourage Indian youth to stay away from drugs, respect their cultures and honor their family. Even though his music style is Rap and geared toward teenagers and young adults, I think his message reaches Indian people of all ages. If you have not heard his music, then you have been missing out.
Here is a video of his song, Different People.

For more information on Litefoot or to purchase his music, you can go to http://litefoot.com/
Those are my thoughts for the day.
Thank you for listening.
