Dio Ganhdih – (Oakland, CA)
Dio Ganhdih is a queer indigenous rapper with a heart beat based in Brooklyn, an imagination spun in upstate New York, and a nervous system best suited for the Bay Area. From deep within Mother Nature’s beauterus, Dio Ganhdih, otherwise known as Heavily Falling Snow, delivers subhersive and unapologetically raw rhymes. Dio utilizes poetry and lyricism to push cultural resiliency while resisting settler-colonialism and distorting imperialist visions of her native homeland.
Born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, he is of Ojibwe/Irish descent with ancestry from Matachewan First Nation. With his fusion of strong, profound lyricism accompanied by corresponding influential sounds, this Hip-Hop/Electronic recording artist and songwriter grasps his listeners attention in various ways and delivers a mesmerizing performance. Actively engaged in the industry for over 4 years, Cody Coyote’s journey includes being up for nominations in the “Best Rap/Hip-Hop CD” and the “Single Of The Year” categories at the 2015 Indigenous Music Awards.
His career has brought him to platforms such as the Juno showcase held at the Ottawa Music Summit on March 30th, 2017 and he will be performing at the National Arts Centre on January 25th, 2018. Cody Coyote’s recent album release entitled “Mamawi” means “All Together” in Anishinaabemowin. “Mamawi” reflects in a manner to initiate positive change through reconciliation between Canada and Indigenous people, togetherness, love and unity.

Every journey begins with one step….having spent many years perfecting his craft as well as his performance and presentation, this talented individual is well on his way to making a footprint in the history of hip-hop along with shaking the entertainment industry in whole.
