Sort of like, what happens when you get overpowered by the Nevada Sun—while listening to Nuthin’ but a G Thang (on repeat)—and at the same time, listening to a heavily tattoo'd guy from HV1, intelligently-and-existentially deconstruct (and reconstruct) strange meanings of life. All from a tribal perspective. Yeah, it’s kind of like that…

Love love love this podcast!!

Thankyou, BB. Your show is amazing. Since I moved here from the UK I’ve wanted to learn more about the lives of Native American Indians. I was disappointed when I came out to the US because I assumed that I’d just meet you guys in American society, and you were nowhere to be seen. I should have tried harder. Your podcast is so honest, insightful, heartbreaking and inspiring. So full of positive messages about education and addiction. Great messages for us all. You should write a book, if you haven’t already. Much love, Shelley x

This is Indian Land!

This podcast is a true and honest representation of modern tribal life. No nonsense. No safety glasses. No mercy. BB goes above and beyond at telling the story; and that’s just what he does. When it comes to this art, he is virtuosic. If you still require further convincing, BB is pioneering a genre of indigenous survival techniques via podcast that has never been done before. This podcast is sharp and cuts deep. Coffee with an Indian is pure brilliance! The content is it’s own form of intellectual revolution that will catch you off guard and for good reason. Don’t waste any time...listen right now.

I needed to hear this

The experiences are relatable to my life. It’s refreshing to hear from someone with relatable life experiences want and get more out of life than what people like us normally get. Can’t wait for further episodes!
Also, cwai black is definitely worth it.
