"Native graffiti art, Indigenized iPods@, Inuit break dancing, Indigenous language hip hop and video, Indian bling and urban wear: the roots of hip hop culture and music have been transformed by Indigenous vultures and identities into new forms of visual culture and music that echo the realities of Aboriginal people. Beat Nation is about music, it's about art, and it's about the spirit of us as Indigenous peoples and cultures." - Tania Willard
'Willard explained that culture and tradition are in constant transformation."
