When people told Gary Davis that he would never become the first Native American rapper, he created his own record label and signed himself as an artist. Since then he’s recorded 11 albums and performed hundreds of concerts all around the world. Gary has also starred in feature films The Indian in the Cupboard, Mortal Kombat, and Kull the Conqueror as well as hit TV shows. As a prominent political figure and an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation, he’s a vocal proponent and lobbyist for Native American issues. His deep desire to give back was the catalyst for his 54,000 mile tour across North America, bringing hope to people living on reservations.

OMG, I LOVE HIM!! That movie was a huge part of my childhood <3 I didn't even know about all the other INCREDIBLE work he has done in this world! Thank you sooo much Tom for bringing him on the show and providing Native American representation! <3

Great video, However I watch a lot of videos on self development and I’m still lost on what to do with my life. I just want to be rich and that may sound bad but I’m just being honest. I feel frustrated after the uplifting videos because I have struggled for many years and no matter what I get into it don’t workout and I am constantly devaluing myself. I am at a point where I’m either angry, depressed, or happy for a short period of time usually because of drinking or smoking weed. I wish I could figure this shit out. Maybe one day

My first time hearing of Mr. Gary Davis, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE him!!!!! Now he's on my I-phone, this white man from Canada, where the First Nations People also live in conditions of squalor. Thank you Gary and Tom!!!

"We have to be out there telling our story. We can't let other people tell our story for us and continue to not have the ownership of who we are." "We just have to do that and hopefully it's leading by example." Powerful.

So much wisdom
ZSHERBEAR 777 (6 months ago)
RUN TO THE ROAR. I love that nugget of wisdom. However, I find it somewhat offensive that anyone would only expect to hear that statement from the dad as opposed to coming from the mom . The very purpose of my watching many of your segments is by my desperate attempt to overcome the same type of negative rhetoric that I have endured for the past 22 years & sadly comes from my own husband .
melovinci (2 months ago)
Yes I didn't like that "Dad" comment either. As a man, I think women, and especially Moms, are the strongest of humans, so it wouldn't be unlikely to hear that advice from a warrior Mom.

44:40 gave me goosebumps. I can't even tell you how much this just impacted me, as someone who has procrastination issues and big goals. Game changer, because I know that the things I'm working on are what I'm meant to do... I don't need to keep looking, so then the only other option is to step my game up.

"People need to understand that their life is not a mistake. That their life isn't just 'because'. That they've been put here for a reason. We're all here for a purpose. NONE of us were put here to do nothing." Bless you, Gary Davis! Such an amazing interview. I got so much out of it! Thank you! "Failures are our greatest teachers. (..) If something ever doesn't go the way that you've planned and you find yourself in that situation, don't panic. The most important thing you can do is stay calm, stay present." Cheers!
Michael Bond (1 year ago)
I've consumed like 5 hrs in 24 hours of your incredible interviews, I'm so impressed the power of your questions. The background knowledge of the guest; and want to say Gary Davis so far has had the biggest impact in my head. Just what I needed to hear. Thank you for sharing great wisdom

I think Tons getting broody he’s asked about son a few times!!! Unless he’s now had a few blighters...
Etienne Bunbury (1 year ago)
This guy seems totally present connected yet somehow disconnected. His mind and soul and sense of purpose make him appear so humble yet so strong powerful! A man that has come from oppression the likes of which is unimaginable to most yet has a burning desire to bring and bestow hope on a people. His people and humanity at large! We are all in this beautiful struggle this thing called life together and yes he’s correct we are all human and have the ability to empathise. Still he’s also recognised that he alone can and must be responsible for steering his course! I love beautiful souls Xx Could someone confirm what his mother says “Run to the War or Raw...” it’s at around 40 minutes in. Peace and life everyone...

This was incredible. I missed this episode, but saw a clip from a montage on Facebook and this guys spirit spoke to mine - I had to find the full video. This did not disappoint! Many an amen was said and by the end I was literally jumping up and down in elation! What a story - what a powerful message to live out. So many incredible lessons from his family and community and lifestyle. A thousand times, thank you Impact Theory team for this one!
Giselle Solorzano (1 year ago)
I think that he could have mention that confidence comes from learning and auto-education. Every day I read a topic about finance and business I feel more confident when I prepare quotes and how I interact with big enterprises.
Marco Ohlin (1 year ago)
Wow, this was very inspiring and needed to hear some great words of wisdom. Thank you for all the hard work you do Tom and to Gary Davis for the amount of impact he has on people, like myself.

I’ve honestly got goosebumps from the intro and I haven’t even seen him yet... something must be speaking to me massively
Swiss NBA Superfan (1 year ago)
Hey I'm Marc, I'm a big fan from Switzerland (french part)! This Gary Davis' interview was to me the most powerful video among your great content. I had to stop in the middle of the show to take another step forward in my life before continuing. Instant motivation and energy. Wow. Thank you Tom Bilyeu for your research and your open questions that made this episode (and many others) so intense in terms of wisdom and fluidity. I think writing practical and inspiring philosophy is my talent, my way to order my thoughts, but also my mission, and, in front of all the doubt we can all face, some external drive can only help. Thank you my man, and I hope you can see this message! Peace to you and your family

Always thinking after a video from you that there can`t come any better and then your guests thrills me with their stories. It was again so impressive and motivating to do my thing. Thank you
TheAnnestube (1 year ago)
WOOOOW!!!! This was - by far - THE BEST - I've seen and heard since Goggins. Man, this was profound beyond just being inspirational. Hope we're going to hear a lot more from him.
ClearOutSamskaras (2 months ago)
"best since David Goggins" was exactly what I was thinking.
PinkSallyProductions (1 year ago)
Thanks Tom and team. Another new name to me, I don't live under a rock, honestly, though it feels like I must have been as I've not heard or read any of Mr Litefoot's contributions. He is definitely a guy I will be looking into, love his mindset & admire his strength of character. I can sense & hear how much he learnt from his family, not just having a 'rock bottom' in his childhood, but also having towers of strength & models of great attitude to inspire him along the way. What an incredible life he is building by (to paraphrase his words) standing on their shoulders. Great stuff 🌹 #impactsub

Peter Huryk (1 year ago)
During the "After Impact", I could not help but think of Brett Gurewitz, Greg Graffin and Bad Religion. Before the Matrix even came out, they got me thinking of the world in a different way. Really enjoyed this episode because it reinforced the "Do It Yourself" ethic.

A brilliant interview and loving all of your videos, however, there is still a piece missing... How do you identify your "X" your destination? This is where I struggle, I have ideas and thoughts but cannot fathom where I want to be, which direction I should take!

Please put Gary Davis' name in the video title. Other guests have their names on titles too. Helps his publicity.

Kev the Nubalot agreed this was a confusing episode because the title and thumbnail didn't match the form factor of the others

Very inspiring interview. Gary's mindset for getting something done like his albums were very helpful for me and my projects.
Vittorio (1 year ago)
This is great! And I just came to an insight regarding film. What if you could turn these interviews in to short films ? Just as ''locked up abroad'' from national geographic - but then ofcourse in an impact theory kind of way? What if you could do that with netflix? wasn't impact theory not going to be on netflix? thankyou for reading this. - Vittorio

Woa !! You got NightWolf to speak!!! Nice. Great message, as well. Interesting interview. Gotta rewatch it on normal speed tho ..
Rockstar 52 (1 year ago)
There are all of these successful people but all of them had rough childhood,rock bottom to summarize.So does that mean that if you didn't live through that you cannot suceed?
Rockstar 52 (1 year ago)
Wen Hao So for everyone it's a different type of rock bottom?
Wen Hao (1 year ago)
Everybody goes through rock bottom: It's the mindset of the people which determines the outcome of success: Are you going through it Goggins style, or act as a victim of life?
Rockstar 52 (1 year ago)
Thanks,good luck!
correct, only the rock bottom people can succeed
AntuanFoSho (1 year ago)
Rockstar 52 No, this is just their perspective on how they achieved their success. Your job is to figure out how you're gonna achieve your own legacy, then one day you too can also tell people your own story of how you made it.
Gurashish singh (1 year ago)
Tom please get David Goggins back again. The man has changed so many lives.
Kim Bauer (5 months ago)
He is so so inspirational!!! Amazing man with such depth and insight. Please bring him on again. 😉
I've watched that interview with David Goggins SO many times, I know both his AND Tom's words almost by heart. I could play either one of their roles in a film! 😅 That was a life-changing interview... for ME at least
Sohan Tanna (1 year ago)
Definitely a strong and great interview. Goes great with the channel mission and his content is just fantastic.
