‘Reservation Dogs’ actors bringing hip-hop to Green Bay Weidner Center | Green Bay Press-Gazette
GREEN BAY – In their first major collaboration with the Oneida Nation organizers with the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts are bringing Indigenous hip-hop stars to Green Bay for upcoming shows.
The partnership is bringing the hip-hop little people duo Lil’ Mike and Funny Bone to the Weidner on the UW-Green Bay campus on Sept. 7.
The performing pair stars in the hit Hulu TV show “Reservation Dogs.”
“We hope that this is only the beginning of a deeper partnership between The Weidner and Oneida Nation Arts Program (ONAP),” said Kelli Strickland, executive director of the Weidner Center and ONAP chairperson. “That is the ideal community partnership, where programming is not happening in a silo, but rather a true collaboration.”
“Reservation Dogs” follows four teens on an Oklahoma reservation who plan to run away from their community to California to start new lives, but soon discover why they actually love their home.
Tickets to the Sept. 7 show at the Weidner Center are $21.
The venue is hosting another renowned Indigenous hip-hop artist, Supaman, on Nov. 1.
