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.

“We cannot wait to welcome Supaman to the Matthews’ stage,” said Darren Granaas, executive director at the Matthews. “Supaman is not only an incredible rapper and musician, but an inspiring communicator of indigenous issues.”

Granaas went on to add that Supaman will also take part in several community residencies in the days leading up to his concert. 

“Having the ability to bring artists like Supaman into local schools is why we do what we do,” Granaas said. “It’s through ticket sales, donations, and the support of organizations like the Spearfish Foundation for Public Education that residencies like this are even possible.”

Supaman has been the recipient of the 2017 MTV VMA award for “Best Fight Against the System.” He is also a Nammy “Native American Music Award” winner, “North American Indigenous Image Award” winner, and seven “Tunney Award” winner. He was awarded  The Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Award in Canada for best video and was voted MTV’s new Artist of the Week. His 2018 nominations brought him home awards for Best Hip Hop Album and Best Producer for the Indigenous Music Awards. His videos titled “Prayer Loop Song” and “Why” both have gone viral and have received millions of views on YouTube and Facebook which has put him in high demand touring extensively throughout the U.S.A and internationally. He has also worked with Taboo from the multi-grammy award-winning group “Black Eyed Peas.”
