Once again this phenomenon has occurred, once again the bar of excellence has been raised, and once again this vessel from the heavens is among us. This time his name is “Tha Native”.

Hailing from the San Manuel Indian Reservation in sunny southern California, Tha Native is keen to remember his roots – and celebrate them.

The people at the San Manuel reservation are the indigenous people of the San Bernardino highlands, passes, valleys, and mountains who the Spaniards collectively called the Serrano, a term meaning highlander. The Serrano looked to nature and the land to provide the necessities of life including shelter, clothing, food and plants used for medicine.
