BLACK NDNS

BLACK NDNs. "If you know I have a history, you will respect me."


ARTIST BIO: 
Kyra Climbingbear was born May 14, 1983 to a “Black” mother and a “Native American” father. At an early age Kyra embraced her mixed heritage and decided, through music, she would educate ignorant minds. She spent many years between New Jersey and Cherokee, North Carolina (Qualla Boundry, Cherokee reservation) where her father later resided with her two brothers and step-mother. During her visits she was introduced to Cherokee traditional dancing as well as traditional Cherokee songs which she took to naturally. Nowadays, her goal is to address world issues and become what Marvin Gaye was in his era: a motivator. Her musical influences can be attributed to her mother’s vast collection of music. One of Kyra’s earliest memories are of her mother humming “Easy On Down the Road” from the soundtrack to The Wiz, and the lyrics have remained with Kyra as a constant reminder to never carry anything that might be a load.
