About Ed Kabotie

Ed Kabotie is a third-generation artist and musician from the Hopi and Tewa tribes. His music has deep ties to his culture and the lands of his people, as well as environmental justice and other issues faced by many Native Americans. He fronts the Flagstaff reggae band Tha ‘Yoties.

About Tha Yoties

Tha ‘Yoties are a Reggae/Rock band from Flagstaff, IrieZona. The band is notable for their lively performances, catchy melodies, and conscious message. Their signature "IrieZona Reggae-Rock" sound is greatly influenced by the cultures and concerns of the Native American populations of the Four Corners region. Through the universal language of music, Tha ‘Yoties are howling in the desert to raise conscious awareness for the plight of the indigenous people and lands of the Colorado Plateau.

About "Into the Canyon"

n 2016 filmmaker/photographer Pete McBride and writer Kevin Fedarko set out on a 750-mile journey on foot through the entire length of the Grand Canyon. From the outset, the challenge was far more than they bargained for. More people have stood on the moon than have completed a continuous through hike of the Canyon. McBride and Fedarko took a sectional approach, achieving a feat that many adventurers have taken decades to complete. Others have lost their lives trying. But their quest was more than just an endurance test-- it was also a way to draw attention to the unprecedented threats facing one of our most revered landscapes.
