Meet Our People – The Enduring Spirit of the Chickasaw Nation

Jeff Carpenter, Chickasaw guitarist for the Native American musical duo "Injunuity," describes how he and Native flute player Brad Clonch (Mississippi Choctaw) offer listeners the opportunity to indulge in Native music comprised of both classical and rock elements. Injunuity's music is of a unique genre, combining the traditional sounds of the Native American flute and the inherent tradition and culture therein, with instruments of popular music (guitars, drums, pianos).
