In celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day, Snotty Nose Rez Kids have returned with a new single.

Following 2020 tracks "Screaming Indian" and "Where They At," "Something Else" arrives today alongside a video celebrating Indigenous excellence in a variety of creative disciplines.

Directed by Sterling Larose, the visuals stars TikTok star Notorious Cree (a.k.a. James Jones), Miss Universe 2015 Ashley Callingbull, actor/director Grace Dove, SNRK's selector DJ Kookum, Two-Spirit creative, designer and stylist Scott Wabano, curator/dancer/model Kendra Jessie, artist and environmental scientist Nikita Elyse, Matriarch Movement Founder Shayla Stonechild, Section 35 clothing company co-founder Justin Jacob Louis, and influencer Indigenous Baddie (a.k.a. Michelle Chubb). 

"We wanted to bring together a deadly group of social influencers making noise on the scene," SNRK's Yung Trybez said of the video. "From actors to dancers, activists, clothing designers, models, to storytellers, we brought everyone together to showcase what they do best."

Young D added,"The community was able to look on the bright side even though news media still fail to see and recognize us as human beings. No matter what label you throw at us, we know who we are and where we come from."

Snotty Nose Rez Kids have been at work on a new album, expected to see release this year. In April, the duo joined Nate Husser on a remix of DillanPonders' "KING OF THE TOWN."

In May, Snotty Nose Rez Kids were nominated for two Western Canadian Music Awards, earning nods for Indigenous Artist of the Year and Rap & Hip Hop Artist of the Year. Their visuals for "Screaming Indian" also netted director Alfonso Chin a nomination for Video Director of the Year.
