As the Snotty Nose Rez Kids, we speak back to the stereotypes that present us as untamed, ill-mannered and vulgar savages, reclaiming ourselves as the 7th generation on the rise. We tell our stories to show that we may be a little rough around the edges but that roughness makes our lives interesting. We don’t carry certain privileges afforded through colonialism -fenced in backyards, green grass suburbia- but we are privileged in other ways. We were privileged to be raised by the ocean with a forest in our back yard. We are rich through learning our traditional way of life while being raised on our ancestors’ territory – there is a great deal of wealth in knowing who and where you come from. We were able to learn by doing, to run around the reservation, get stung by devils nettle and not cry over it but wipe our snot on it and keep going. We learnt about the ocean’s depth and the rivers’ current. We learned how to survive without actually having to only survive. We ran in packs. We were raised by our parents; we were raised by our community. Our culture is strong and continues to shape us into who we are today. We are storytellers, dancers, singers and artists. We are survivors. Our ancestors live through us and as individuals, we have a platform to communicate this with our community. With whatever lens you see us through, we will always be the snot nosed kids from the rez and that’s what makes us beautiful.

Boslen, is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter/rapper, who has emerged from the streets of Chilliwack, BC with his own brand of street soul – a blend of the urgency of trap music with the smoother sounds of alternative R&B. Prior to his music career, Boslen shined as a top athlete playing for Rugby Canada, earning himself a scholarship to the University of Victoria, and a ticket out of his hometown. After a career shaking ACL tear, Boslen turned to music as an outlet to deal with depression and his deteriorating mental health. Now with 25+ songs released on all major platforms, over 300,000 collective streams, the ‘Our Lives’ music video featured on Youtube, and close to a dozen successful shows in the book this young artist is now on the cusp of capturing a mainstream audience with his unique sound.
