Featuring Mato Nanji

of Indigenous

Gallup, for a small city, gets its share of diverse concerts, whether it’s a Cuban jazz ensemble or a rock n’ roll gig and everything in between.

It was the fusion of blues and rock that hit the stage in the downtown area at the Gallup Downtown Conference Center this past week. Taking the stage June 8 was “Indigenous.” Indigenous is an American rock band that debuted in the late 1990s.

The band originally consisted of two brothers, Mato Nanji and Pte Nanji, their sister Wanbdi, and cousin Horse – all Yankton Sioux Native American Indians from the Nakota Nation, growing up on the Yankton Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

There are plenty of fun things to do while vacationing in Mexico. Sunbathing on the beaches, strolling through quaint towns, swimming in the gorgeous waters, hopping into rickety old motorboat heading to the middle of nowhere, entering a rusty, dilapidated cage surrounded by hungry great white sharks more than 25 feet in length. Well, maybe not the last bit, but there’s no 47 Meters Down (or Johannes Roberts’ 47 Meters Down, as the title credit bafflingly proclaims) without some serious lapses in judgment.

Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) are sisters who find themselves in this unlikely scenario. The equipment looks about...

Well, if nothing else, it certainly looks great. Cars 3, the newest from Pixar, is an admittedly slick little vehicle that will most certainly impress the young tykes. Unfortunately, this reviewer hasn’t been seven years old in a very, very long time. Despite the incredible animation on display, the story offers significantly less to anyone standing over four feet in height.

Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) begins to feel long in the tooth when younger vehicles like Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) arrive and take the championship from him. Desperate to continue, Lightning begins working with new sponsor Sterling (Nathan Fillion) and attempts...
