Travis Thompson is a 26-year-old artist from Seattle. He put out an EP this fall and also made his acting debut on the hit show, Reservation Dogs. He talks about his new music and Indigenous representation on television and on the mic.  

“When I pulled up on set, it was a crazy experience for me, but they were treating me like a famous rapper because they had all listened to me before,” Thompson says. “The Native creative community knows each other.”
