Tribe.1491 or Dwight Farahat is a member of the Siksika Nation. He is well known for his work with Indigenous teens, powerful storytelling, motivational speaking and freestyle rapping. His unique style of facilitation is a blend of social work, Hip Hop, arts, and Social-Emotional Learning. Dwight has an in-depth understanding of indigenous issues and colonization. For the last ten years, he has been using Hip Hop, poetry, and storytelling as tools to help youth become aware of their inner beliefs. Dwight feels that “these inner beliefs shape the picture of who you are and who you become.” He challenges youth to ask themselves, “what picture are you holding of yourself and who are you slowly stepping toward becoming?”
