The Northern Cheyenne War on Meth Community Coalition will put on the fifth annual Rockin the Rez Against Meth awareness concert tonight from 5 to 1 a.m.

The concert will take place at the Lame Deer Elementary football field bowl, off Highway 212.

The event will feature live bands, a hand drumming contest and a community barbecue. The educational and inspirational event is free and open to the public.

Performers include Red Tide Rising, a band on national tour; Supaman — Christian Parrish; Damian and Julie Beartusk; Rushing Wind — Wayne Boyd Jr.; Cortney Kluver; Snaggers/Lorenzy McMakin; and Lawrence Longroach.

Motivational speakers will also talk about the issue of methamphetamines on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Tribal programs will have booths with safety and prevention information to give away.

The first 1,000 participants through the gate will receive a free “We are Sacred People” T-shirt imprinted with the “War Against Meth Warrior” inset in a reservation map of the Northern Cheyenne Nation.

People who come to the concert are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses.
