Life on the Rez in search of a brick of commodity cheese. Filmed on the Menominee Indian Reservation. A semi-autobiographical, humorous and national award winning music video from Menominee performing artist and NAMMY winner Wade Fernandez.

Although this video won a few national awards, it was done just for kicks on a shoe string budget and scripted out on a napkin. I wanted to put out a video that was representative of life on the rez as I experienced it with all it's rich laughter and fun despite the "poverty" and with no Disney, Hollywood, or New Age stereotypes. I worked at the Comod shop when I got out of high school on the rez and my friend who threw me out of the shop on the video was my former boss there. RIP Johnny Quay.

Other characters; Waubano, Richie, Jonesy, Wade

The song is from my Song of the Black Wolf CD.

My various CDs contain Contemporary American Indian music, rock, blues, folk, instrumental, jammin', Native Flute, etc. and I have either been nominated or won several national awards in many different genres of music, so be sure and look around if you have a preference for style. I just love writing, performing, and recording music in many different styles.
