SKL is producing a music video for the Anti-Opioid Anthem "FLIPPIN" and is seeking community members to appear in the video for a national campaign.

MASHPEE - SKL is seeking volunteers from the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe as well asother First Nations people and 
community members to appear in a public service announcement/music video for the Anti-Opioids Anthem, "FLIPPIN" by Soul Poet's Syndicate.

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe in conjunction with Song Keepers, Ltd is looking for people from the community to appear in the video. They are particularly reaching out to people who have family members to this epidemic to appear with pictures of their loved ones.


The shoot will take place on Saturday, October 7 at the Old Indian Meeting House in Mashpee; and Sunday, October 8 at the Herring Run in Mashpee. Both shoots begin at 1pm.

"We are looking for elders, children, mothers, fathers, cousins, siblings... everybody from the community who is ready to take a stand and say no to those pushing this poison into the community." - Billie Atkins, President of Song Keepers, Ltd.

FLIPPIN is a song with a powerful message directed at members of the community who have chosen to sell heroin and other opioids to their neighbors and peers. Heroin has reached epidemic proportions throughout the country and Native America is the hardest hit demographic with this disease. The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, whose membership numbers below 3,000 people has been experiencing an average of one death per month due to opioid overdoses or prolonged usage.

Soul Poet's Syndicate is a spoken-word collective comprised of primarily Native American MCs, poets and storytellers and grew out of the SKL Artist Mentoring Program.
