A Tribe Called Red officially Change Their Name to "The Halluci Nation"

Tim "2oolman" Hill and Ehren "Bear Witness" Thomas

"Indigenous people need to define their identity on their own terms. If you share this vision, then you are already part of the Halluci Nation."



A Tribe Called Red have changed their name to the Halluci Nation.

The Indigenous electronic producers say the name is inspired by the works of Indigenous poet and activist John Trudell, who died in 2015. He was also the inspiration for their 2016 concept album "We Are the Halluci Nation."

Tim (2oolman) Hill and Ehren (Bear Witness) Thomas started billing themselves as Halluci Nation last year..

The Halluci Nation plans to release a new album called "One More Saturday Night" that serves as a homage to the group's monthly Electric Pow Wow party, which ran in Ottawa for nearly a decade starting in 2007.
