Brad Bellegarde

 
 
Brad Bellegarde aka InfoRed has rocked the microphone across Turtle Island and has been a featured artist at events such as Aboriginal Music Week in Manitoba, APTN’s Aboriginal Day Live and Vancouver’s Olympic Games celebrations. Brad is a proud Nakota/Cree member of the Little Black Bear First Nation who calls Regina, SK home. When he isn’t manifesting rhymes on stage, Brad holds his head high walking the hallways of First Nations University of Canada as a Journalism student. A true believer that education is the new buffalo, Brad frequently speaks to youth in their communities facilitating workshops on First Nations Culture and the art of storytelling using his gift of rap to relay the message.  His work in schools gave him a unique opportunity to present his methods of education at the VIII International Conference of Intercultural Education in Indigenous Contexts in Temuco, Chile. An active member in the community, Brad has been the Vice President of Communications and President on the First Nations University of Canada’s Regina campus Students’ Association from 2011-2014 and has also been a Student Ambassador since 2012. Being a student and a performer provided Brad with the opportunity to perform for His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall during their Royal visit to First Nations University of Canada in 2012. In addition to being a full-time student, Brad continues to find time to speak to youth organizations, schools and class rooms to encourage and engage the students in dialogue about higher education, re-learning their culture and abstinence of drugs and alcohol. To hear some of his music feel free to go to soundcloud.com/thelocalonlyz for a free album download of ‘Kings Among Klowns’ which was rated one the Canada’s top ten most influential Indigenous albums of 2011 by RPM.fm.
