Creek rapper raises $12K for Choctaws hit by Katrina


Shadowyze [Web Site], a Creek hip-hop artist who lives in Florida, raised $12,000 for a Choctaw community in Mississippi that was hit by Hurricane Katrina.

Shadowyze said he was worried that help might not reach the rural community of Bogue Homa. So with the help of his fans, he raised the money to buy food and supplies that he delivered to the 200 Choctaws who live there this past Saturday.

The community was the hardest hit on the Mississippi Choctaw Reservation. Power was finally restored to most of the homes on Friday.

National tribal organizations are raising money to help the tribes affected by Katrina. Donations for the National Congress of American Indians fund can be sent to the National Congress of American Indians 1301 Connecticut Ave, NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC 20036.

Donations for the National Indian Gaming Association fund may be sent to the Spirit of Sovereignty Foundation, attn: Hurricane Katrina Fund, 224 Second St. SE, Washington, D.C. 20003.
