Hip-Hop: First Peoples, New Voices [photos]

Indigenous artists have embraced hip-hop as a means to reclaim their cultural heritage after centuries of displacement, discrimination, and genocide. The folks at Grand Performances brought out a number of these artists to share their music, dances, and stories.

Below are some of my favorite photos of the night. The rest are at my flickr.
