Resilience in this Racing Reality, or R-cubed, is a series of conversations with Indigenous musicians, performers, and artists who are scheduled to perform at Stanford Live during the 2021–22 season. Hosted by Stanford Live curatorial fellow Will Paisley (Navajo and Blackfeet) and brought to you by Stanford Live, R-cubed gives space to artists to discuss their creative practices and the impact of their work on furthering Indigenous performance and promoting contemporary representations of Indigenous people in the 21st century.

This podcast was recorded in 2020. To keep everyone safe, interviews were conducted remotely.
