  1. I’ve known infa-red for a long time. He represents our native culture, through hip-hop, in a enlightening way. His lyrics describe our plight as it is today, in THIS era. I’m very proud to have him as a friend.

  2. Infared has been a musician all his life. He has brought big name artists to indian country (American Indian reservations). And has always supported other artists as well as, native american artists. His music defines ‘rezlife- life on the Indian reservation’ and our historical plight within our country. Support his music and be educated about the truth.

  3. So AWESOME to see one of our own taking a MODERN stance to rep our REZ LIFE and native way of living that can only be found at home on WIND RIVER. Break trail for the rest of out unfound rez rappers. Wind River has given birth to some unbeleivable and UNDISCOVERED voices.

  4. Never met someone so dedicated to represent the Northern Arapaho Nation and to let the world know about our lives as Natives.

  5. True, our native American ways live on, we went thru hell but made it. Keep on doing what your doing good luck bro!

  6. Let’s do this!! Keep on going don’t look back. Your a Native Inspiration to us!! You speak the truth. Love your music!

  7. I had the good fortune to meet this young man at a language conference and I was most impressed with his outlook and optimism. The reservation needs more like him.

  8. I have always enjoyed listening to your music.for as long as i could remember. shine bright . tell the world about who we are through your music . tell are stories , and were we have been and were come from . Hip hop is what the youth is listening to these days as well and through your music they listen to you , and learn from it . You stand for are people we are Northern Arapaho.

  9. Thanks for all the love n support in letting people know as native people we care for one another. Despite all negitive n hate that goes on around us we need to overcome that with love. Love conquers all. Infa
