Offering a thorough look at the historical contributions of indigenous musicians to the American music landscape, RUMBLE is truly eyeopening. Many of the Native-Americans paralleled and intersected with the racism that African-Americans and other minority groups experienced at the time. As Robbie Robertson, one of the musicians being portraited, points out, the saying “be proud you are an indian, but be careful who you tell” was a matter of survival.
