Supaman’s one-of-a-kind performances combine Native culture, comedy, and urban hip hop attitude into a high-energy presentation that dazzles audiences and captivates listeners.
Supaman (the stage name of Christian Takes the Gun Parrish, who also goes by “Awe aakeen baa aachile,” meaning “Good Fortune to Mother Earth” in his native Apsáalooke language) has toured widely. He has performed at symphony halls, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, Arise Festival, World Fest, and also at schools near Billings, Mont., where he lives with his family. His many awards include an MTV Video Music Award for “Best Fight Against the System,” a NAMMY (Native American Music Award), and three Indigenous Music Awards.
Supaman’s latest album is “Medicine Bundle,” which draws from his spirituality and his outspoken advocacy for Indigenous unity.
