BOOKS AUTHORED BY MICHAEL LERMA

Michael Lerma (P’urhépecha) is an Associate Professor and Dean of the School of Business and Social Science at Diné College. He received his doctorate from the University of Arizona from the department of American Indian Studies. His recent research explores the efficacy of traditional Diné (Navajo) institutions of governance. He teaches courses on International Relations, Tribal Government, Native American Politics, and Research Methods. Michael’s research generally advocates for future Native Nation building via consolidation of indigenous interests and expansion of Native Nation control of norms within the international political economy. Published books include: Indigenous Sovereignty in the 21st Century: Knowledge for the Indigenous Spring (2014, Florida Academic Press) and Guided by the Mountains: Navajo Political Philosophy and Governance (2017, Oxford University Press).

ONE NOTE JOHNNY MUSIC & MERCH

 John spent his formative years singing along to MTV and East Side Story cassettes back in the 90s. In 1997, he was gifted a broken-up guitar that he taught himself to play CCR songs. Then and now, he’s inspired by artists such as Sam Cook, Tupac, Sixto Rodrigues and Aretha Franklin. John is the product of the system he was born to destroy. He routinely goes dormant for weeks (or months) at a time retaining no recollection of what goes on until he re-emerges to sing, play guitar, and otherwise cause trouble. Some have surmised that he is the figment of an unknown individual’s imagination. His experimental music blends folk with socially conscious lyrics meant to sing a better world into being. ‘Historically Looted’ (2016) is a concept album about the ups and downs of being indigenous in the 21st century. ‘Memories and Dreams’ (2021) is a collection of songs about falling in love, remembering beautiful moments, and dreaming of better tomorrows. Both albums are available on streaming services, including Pandora, iTunes, and Spotify ++SEARCH FOR ONENOTE JOHNNY++. Click your heels three times and he may appear to play a concert in your living room. Merch is coming soon!

Topics which they have introduced to the platform are Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls, Homesite Leases on tribal lands, Navajo Nation infrastructure challenges, local politics, national elections, stereotypes of indigenous people, and COVID-19 quarantines and lock downs. Their brand of information dissemination is blunt, unapologetic and offers a critical eye on the current cultural landscape. Available merch supports their endeavor.
