Sodizin: Songwriting from a Native American Perspective with Lyla June Johnston

Lyla June is a poet, musician, human ecologist, public speaker and community organizer of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne) and European lineages. Her dynamic, multi-genre performance style has invigorated and inspired audiences across the globe towards personal, collective and ecological healing. Her messages focus on Indigenous rights, supporting youth, inter-cultural healing, historical trauma and traditional land stewardship practices. Her undergraduate studies in human ecology at Stanford University coupled with a traditional upbringing inform her potent messages conveyed through the medium of powerful yet prayerful hip-hop, poetry, acoustic song and speech. Her personal goal is to grow closer to Creator by learning how to love deeper.
