Posting on Instagram, the band Portugal. The Man – best known for their recent song Feel It Still – said while they don’t know the full-extent of our country’s “history”, they “know there are problems that, like ours, are yet to be resolved”.
“We were scheduled to appear on Sunrise tomorrow morning but we have decided, as a band, that we do not want to be part of that show at this time. We come from rural Alaska and hold very close to our hearts the indigenous people of our home.
While we are by no means experts in your countries (sic) history we know there are problems that, like ours, are yet to be resolved and only being amplified by the recent statements on Sunrise. Uncle Allen Madden will be welcoming us all to our show in Sydney tonight. Love and Respect,” the statement read.
