One World (We Are One) - Official Video

We can find unity in our diversity ✊🏼 I am proud to partner

IllumiNative and Mag 7 for the release of “We Are One,” a collaboration
to show the richness, diversity, and beauty of Indian Country.

On Indigenous Peoples' Day and every day we are here to say that
We Are Still Here. Research has shown that the lack of representation of
Native peoples in mainstream society creates a void that limits the
understanding and knowledge that Americans have of Native communities.
We are here to fight the invisibility that Natives face by amplifying
contemporary, authentic Native voices, and supporting Native peoples
tell their story.

We as humans all live in this one world where we have to work and live
together. Our goal is for Native peoples to be normalized in a current
today and show accurate and positive representations of our people.

About IllumiNative and Mag 7:

IllumiNative is an initiative, created and led by Natives, to challenge
the negative narrative that surrounds Native communities and ensure
accurate and authentic portrayals of Native communities are present in
pop culture and media.

Mag 7 is a collective of seven MCs and songwriters from different
tribes, who came together for hope and optimism. The members of Mag 7
are Drezus (Plains Cree tribe), Supaman (Crow tribe), PJ Vegas (Shoshone
/ Yaqui tribes), Kahara Hodges (Navajo tribe), Doc Native (Seminole
tribe), Spencer Battiest (Seminole tribe), and Emcee One
(Osage/Potawatomi tribes).
