Reuben Kitto Stately (stage name "Kitto") is a 21 year old recording artist from Minneapolis and a college student currently attending Augsburg University. He comes from both Santee Dakota & Red Lake Ojibwe Nations. Reuben has been writing and recording for 9 years. HIs goal with his music is to keep it honest with his listeners. His music harmonizes the happy & sad times and both good & bad experiences. "I believe when I rap about what I’ve been through, I validate other indigenous youth who relate to my experience. I believe this makes them not feel so alone in our collective need for healing. This is my gift and it’s not only healing myself but others as well."
