For our Phase II North American Indigenous Music Project, we will invite exceptional Indigenous student songwriters and musicians from tribal reservations and schools that historically serve Indigenous populations across North America to audition for the project. Participants will record an original composition and contribute to the development of a documentary music video using virtual audio production and collaboration technologies. Audio and video equipment will be provided to our participants to use during the project.

In our safe, secure online learning management system, participants will serve as tribal ambassadors providing cultural teaching and learning opportunities to each other while creating inter-tribal bonds. Our scholars (including Dr. Kelly Laurila of Canada – Sami tribe, Dr. James Honeycutt – University of Texas at Dallas, Dr. Bill Lord, and the University of New Mexico OILS program) have created an experience where support and healing may occur. Our team will guide the development of a new inter-cultural musical family. Students will learn valuable skills such as virtual audio production technologies, sound treatment, online project collaboration, music industry legalities, explore what it means to be an Indigenous musician, the potential power of music, and they will work with NAMMY-winning musician, singer/songwriter and producer Wade Fernandez (Menominee tribe) to record an original song. The finished song will be distributed on popular streaming services providing the potential for musicians to realize income from their contributions. This project will promote Native cultures and music to the world, provide a platform from which talented young musicians may be seen and heard, and seek to instill pride while creating bonds of unity across Tribes.

The deadline for songwriters to submit an original composition is January 15th. We request your assistance by passing along this opportunity to your youth. Your support will allow us to build bridges and create unity between highly diverse groups of people who live in an increasingly divided world. Please help us foster bonds of friendship between the Indigenous artists and leaders of tomorrow. We welcome any questions you may have.

Wishing you peace, health, and happiness through music,

Bill Lord
Dr. William (Bill) Lord, Founder & Executive Director
