STAN RODRIGUEZ Kumeyaay Bird Singer

Stan Rodriguez, Iipay Ipai bird singer from the Santa Ysabel Band of Diegueno Indians reservation in San Diego County, aka Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel, plays a can rattle and leads a group of California Native singers at the Sycuan gathering and powwow, September 10, 2005, Ipai Diegueño.

A fluent Kumeyaay language speaker, Stan Rodriguez is a Native California Indian dedicated to learning his aboriginal language, and the indigenous songs of the Yuman peoples — and passing them along through speaking engagements, live concert performances, and Native American ceremonies.

Mr. Rodriguez, a Native American Persian Gulf War veteran who served nine years in the U.S. Navy, currently works with colleges, universities, tribal programs, and schools in the Southern California greater San Diego area, in addition to giving public live performances at many cultural events across the United States and Baja California, Mexico.

Mr. Rodriguez has a teenage son currently serving his country in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Once we hear the distinctive voice of Stan Rodriguez, accompanied by his can rattle, and storytelling style, we will appreciate his live performances and efforts to learn, preserve, and share his Kumeyaay culture.
