WHY? Our favorite poet-author JOHN TRUDELL (1946-2015)
"I called the album Blue Indians because there is a kind of spiritual and cultural genocide perpetrated on everyone that is poor in this country,” Trudell said. “The advance of technology has put all of us on a kind of reservation.  These are the people who can’t educate their children, or afford health care. They’ve been robbed of life, which is what happened to Native people, so in that context, we’re all Indians.” [About six months after the deaths of his family, John Trudell started writing poetry. He described his work, "They're called poems, but in reality they're lines given to me to hang on to."]

Quote of 2019

As dedicated as I am to the craft of writing, I also feel very ambivalent about all the accoutrements that go around being a writer and being published. People forget that this is all a very recent invention, that authors have to do this dog and pony show.
-Eugene Thacker: Author, Editor, Poet, Professor

Why Blue Indians?

OUR INSPIRATION: “I called the album Blue Indians because there is a kind of spiritual and cultural genocide perpetrated on everyone that is poor in this country,” Trudell said. “The advance of technology has put all of us on a kind of reservation. These are the people who can’t educate their children, or afford health care. They’ve been robbed of life, which is what happened to Native people, so in that context, we’re all Indians.” -JOHN TRUDELL
