As a member of the “Apsaalooke Nation”, Supaman makes his home on the Crow reservation in Montana. The name “Supaman” hardly describes the person who is Christian Takes Gun Parrish, a humble Native American dancer and hip hop artist who has dedicated his life to empowering youth and educating listeners with a message of hope through culture and music. He is a young energetic entrepreneur with tremendous leadership abilities. His presentation style and delivery are nothing short of captivating. Known for his tremendously powerful inspirational lyrics, he is in demand nationally with the purpose of spreading a positive message throughout Indian country and abroad. In 2005 he won a (Nammy) The Native American Music Award for his group “Rezawrecktion” and has since released three self produced projects which have all received national recognition and awards including the 2011 North American Indigenous Image Award for outstanding hip hop album!
Christian’s presentation combines Native American culture, humor, and urban hip hop culture which dazzles audiences, captivates listeners and breaks down stereotypes. For this he has gained the respect of his culture and generation. He is a champion fancy dancer traveling extensively on the powwow circuit throughout the U.S and Canada and lives a drug and alcohol free life. He also is a champion clown dancer and a Native American Flute player which adds to his uniqueness as a role model, not to mention a loving husband and father of three. The communicative talent along with the compassion that exudes from his life allows him to connect with people from all walks of life. His uncanny ability to motivate, encourage, and inspire through dance, humor and music keeps him at the forefront among his contemporaries.
Supaman has worked with numerous programs and tribes to help promote self worth, build moral character, build a positive sense of native identity. He has implemented his presentations to address the issues that he has experienced and is very passionate about.
