THE REACH THE REZ TOUR FEATURING LITEFOOT Part 1 of 3
TITLE SPONSOR: THE SEMINOLE TRIBE OF FLORIDA
A three part glimpse into the inspirational, unprecedented and historic Reach the Rez Tour featuring Native American Actor and Rap Artist Litefoot, which traveled over 54,000 miles and performed over 211 concert and speaking events on American Indian reservations and communities across the United states in just one year.
The Reach The Rez tour was spawned by Litefoot's feelings that Native people must be proactive in dealing with the ills that are facing its communities instead of reactionary.
Litefoot believed that this effort must carry with it a clear message. A message that would not serve merely as a "band-aid" or a temporary cure, but a message that would heal completely those who were broken...mentally, physically and spiritually. The message must be clear: In order to reclaim our Native people from alcoholism, drug addiction, low self-esteem etc... we must look to the Creator and restore spirituality as the priority in Indian Country. We must pray.
This message was delivered 211 times in the span of one year and over 54,000 miles impacting tens of thousands of American Indian people. Lives were changed, hope was restored and hearts were healed and the effort continues today. -- ► Subscribe to My Channel Here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6u1... --- Gary "Litefoot" Davis, is the first American Indian rap artist, performing under the moniker “Litefoot”, he has released 11 albums on his own record label, Red Vinyl Records and won both “Album of the Year” and “Artist of the Year” honors from the Native American Music Awards.
