Continuing in a style that began with her debut CD: “Rise Again Truth”, firmly rooted in the Roots Reggae Tradition, the music of Tchiya Amet is a blend of Indigenous and Contemporary cultures and rhythms. This music keeps the culture, myths, legends and rhythms of the Ancestors alive.This music carries the wisdom and the teachings of the Elders forward into the future, by reaching out to the youth of today.
“Black Turtle Island” seeks to express the voice of a nation denied the most basic of human rights, time and time again: the right to self-determination, even the right to exist.
The existence of Indigenous Black Indians of Turtle Island is a controversial topic in Indian Country today. Nevertheless, we continue to exist, and we continue to make music.
With remnants of Ancient Traditions, Tchiya Amet has crafted a colorful cultural quilt, to provide warmth and comfort to the Indigenous peoples of the 4 Directions during these trying times.

Customer Reviews from AMAZON.COM
Ancient wisdom meets timeless music , July 17, 2003 Reviewer: Scott “Choctaw” Aaron from Texas United States “With the long awaited follow up to her award winning and highly acclaimed first release, Rise Again Truth, Tchiya’s sophmore effort, Black Turtle Island, distinguishes her as one of the foremost talents in the World Music genre. Drawing from a diverse pallete of cultural influences, Black Turtle Island bears the fruit of spiritual consciousness and social awareness while furnishing the listener with a plethora of fresh and original “riddims”. If you enjoyed Rise Again Truth, you will be similarly impressed and inspired by the combination of songwriting and superb musicianship. Not only does Black Turtle Island pay tribute to many of the great historical figures of the last two centuries, but its timeless musical anthems lay the foundation for a return to the positive and uplifting origins of reggae. Music sweet, music dread, music lion!”
