 About Blue Mountain Tribe
Back in the mid-2000s in Tehachapi, California, father and son duo Robin and Caleb Hairston set out to create an all-Native American blues and rock band—and that’s exactly what they did. As a “band of brothers,” the Blue Mountain Tribe began creating original songs focused on Native American experiences, and they instantly became a hit.
Since its formation, the band has received numerous accolades. The song “Pray for Our Planet” alone has earned significant global achievements. Written in the wake of COVID-19 after the highly-respected Chief Arvol Looking Horse asked Blue Mountain Tribe to pray for healing, the song and music video has won Best Music Video at the INDO French International Film Festival, the Latino and, the Las Vegas International Film Festival and most recently Best Blues Video at the Native American Music Awards among many others.
Blue Mountain Tribe continues to produce award-winning music, but their mission isn’t about garnering wealth and fame. It’s all about raising awareness, helping others, and making the world a better place. Conveying themes of inspiration and love but also pain and rage, the band’s songs represent not just each member’s own Indigenous heritage but all 500+ original Indigenous Nations.
