Jarrett Martineau

I'm a Cree/Dene digital media producer, organizer, and hip-hop artist from Frog Lake First Nation, currently based in Victoria, BC on Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territories.

I hold a Ph.D. in Indigenous Governance from the University of Victoria; and was a 2013-14 Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Columbia University and CUNY's Center for Place, Culture and Politics in New York.

I'm also the Creative Producer of Revolutions Per Minute (RPM.fm) — a global new music platform to promote Indigenous Music Culture.

My research focuses on Indigenous art, resurgence, decolonization, and new forms of Indigenous political communication. I'm interested in how Indigenous resistances to colonialism & neoliberal capitalism—through Indigenous hip-hop, music, art, media and technology—have changed under globalization, and at the ways in which Indigenous Peoples across Turtle Island and beyond are creatively navigating this shifting political and cultural terrain.

In past professional lives, I've been the News Director of NowPublic, a host of ZeD on CBC Television & Brave New Waves on CBC Radio 2, and a co-founder of The New Forms Festival and Capital Magazine.

I occasionally rap solo, and I used to kick it with a live band and some laptop geeks.
