A celebratory examination of the suppressed role of Canadian and American First Nations writers and performers, and their contributions to popular music. The title comes from “Rumble”, the 1958 smash hit by Shawnee musician Link Wray, which was widely banned from airplay in the US. Through dynamic archival footage, photographs, and a series of fascinating interviews with a variety of pop-culture celebrities and commentators, the film finely balances biographical sketches with historical context to reveal this long overdue missing chapter.
