As a member of the “Apsaalooke Nation”, Supaman makes his home on the Crow reservation in Montana. “Supaman” Is Christian Takes Gun Parrish, a Native American dancer and innovative hip hop artist who has dedicated his life to empowering and spreading a message of hope, pride and resilience through his original art form.
Supaman’s one of a kind presentation combines Native culture, comedy and urban hip hop culture which dazzles audiences and captivates listeners. For this he has gained the respect of his community and generation. The communicative talent along with the compassion that exudes from his music allows him to connect with people from all walks of life. His uncanny ability to motivate, encourage, and inspire through dance, and hip hop music keeps him at the forefront among his contemporaries which gives him a platform to educate on Indigenous issues.

About Laughter and Resilience:
This event is part of ongoing programming for the Eiteljorg’s new exhibition Laughter and Resilience: Humor in Native American Art. This fascinating exhibition curated by the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe, N.M. examines Indigenous humor in all its forms. Laughter and Resilience will inspire an appreciation and better understanding of Native Art through the concept of how humor, telling jokes, and being light-hearted (especially during times that require or have required acts of resiliency), is central to many Native American groups.
