Robby Romero’s NEW single BORN ON THE REZ spotlights Native Peoples invincible resistance to colonial powers, extractive industries, and corporate greed. The singles poetic journey follows a trail of broken treaties, massacres, and betrayals from Sand Creek and Wounded Knee to Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock.
BORN ON THE REZ is the first in a series of singles and music pictures to be released by Eagle Thunder Records in support of the Native Children’s Survival, TRAIL OF BROKEN TREATIES ~ #HONOR1851TREATY Campaign.
“We’re on a journey to create a wave of momentum for the 50th Anniversary of the “Trail of Broken Treaties” caravan to Washington, D.C., 17 September 2022 — and to generate over a million petition signatures to challenge the United States and its Congress to #RightTheWrong and honor at least one of the more than 500 broken treaties made with Native Nations.” — Robby Romero
BORN ON THE REZ was produced by four-time Grammy winner, musician, record producer, and music executive, Don Was, featuring American Indian Movement leader, Dennis Banks (1937 -2017) and three-time Grammy Award winner, Golden Globe winner and Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Kris Kristofferson.
Robby Romero rose to prominence in 1990 with the global broadcast of his first televised music picture campaign, IS IT TOO LATE and with his designation as a United Nations Ambassador Of Youth For The Environment. Over the past two decades, Robby has used the international languages of music and film to help shift the paradigm and bridge the gap between Indigenous Peoples, human rights and the environment through his non-profit organization, Native Children’s Survival.
Robby’s innovative alter-native music has taken him from the heart of Indian Country to the main street of the world with commercial success and critical acclaim. His music pictures broadcast on MTV and VH1 introduced Native Rock Music to the music television generation. His stereotype-breaking public service announcements and politicized rockumentary films, broadcast on national and international networks from Sundance TV to SABC Africa, have catapulted him into an arena of his own making.
For more than three decades Robby has used his music to stand up for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the preservation of Mother Earth and the celebration of all of her children. He has conducted and performed at benefit concerts and fundraisers around the world. Proceeds raised from concerts, recordings, campaigns, and eco-friendly giveback merchandise and products support Indigenous Peoples on the frontlines of environmental justice and social change. Robby has received multiple awards and cultural honors. His music offers a profound voice of appreciation and action, weaving the timeless wisdom of Indigenous Peoples into the unfolding fabric of the future.
