GREAT FALLS – Hundreds of people and families enjoyed the music and dancing of Supaman in Great Falls Saturday afternoon.
The Indian Family Health Clinic and many community partners organized the event as a fun and sober way to engage the community.
Christian Parrish, who uses the name Supaman, mixes traditional native music and dancing with hip hop and rap. Along with sharing his music, the artist frequently visits schools to help engage Native youth.
Mary Lynne Billy-Old Coyote with the Indian Family Health Clinic said they organized the event because Supaman promotes honor, integrity, respect and sober living.
“He’s very much about engaging the youth in our community as well as families. He is a family man, he is a husband, he is a tribal member, he’s a musician, he’s an artist and he believes in the same mission and vision about wellness, holistic health and living a good life, based in family,” said Billy-Old Coyote.
Supaman uses the story of his own family’s struggle with addiction to help promote the importance of clean living.
