The Halluci Nation, formerly known as A Tribe Called Red, will perform the halftime show for the B.C. Lions’ upcoming Orange Shirt Day game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Friday, Sept. 29.

The duo of Bear Witness and Tim ‘2oolman’ Hill derived their new name from a phrase coined by John Trudell to describe the vast global community of people who remember at their core what it means to be a human.

The group was founded in Ottawa in 2007 and has released four studio albums, including A Tribe Called RedNation II NationWe Are the Halluci Nation, and One More Saturday Night. The Halluci Nation has received five Juno Award nominations, winning Breakthrough Group of the Year in 2014 and Group of the Year in 2018.

This will be B.C.’s third annual Orange Shirt Day game, which they host with respect to Canada’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

The Lions (8-4) currently sit second in the West Division, four points back of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (10-3) and four points ahead of the Saskatchewan Roughriders (6-6).
