The band members said in an interview with F Newsmagazine, "Our music is a reflection of what it’s like to be a Rez kid. All of us in the band have lived the rez life and know the beauty and how ugly rez life can be. We always represent our people and culture because we want to show our people it’s possible to chase your dreams and make them a reality. Our culture keeps us grounded and reminds us why we do what we do."
