XIT" stands for "crossing of Indian Tribes", according to Tom Bee. Their music often addresses themes of historic and contemporary Native American issues. Their initial recording, 1972's Plight of the Redman, is a concept album about the changes in Native American life since the arrival of Columbus. Plight of the Redman, 1972. Silent Warrior, 1973. Entrance, 1974 (Lincoln Street Exit; early work from the sixties). Rainbow Rider, 1976 (A Firedrum Production, Produced & Directed By Tom Bee).

Classic 70′s American Indian rock. This is the record that inspired a whole generation of young American Indians throughout North America and labeled XIT as the musical ambassadors of the American Indian Movement.

Album Plight Of The Redman. Hey ya heh Akodaani Dii nihi keyah ho Akanisin Hey ya heh Akodaani Dii nihi keyah ho Akanisin. forever The New World That is what the whiteman called our land But it was not new at all The redman Inhabitants of America for.

As is evident on Plight Of The Redman by Xit, a band of Native Americans from Albuquerque, NM. Originally released on the Rare Earth label in 1972, the title explains the consciousness and relevancy of the music. Apocalyptic tom tom beats and eerie chants introduce "Beginning," more of the same with "Nihaa Shil Hozho" a seven minute odyssey that was the only single released from this album in the 70's. It's odd that "I Was Raised" never was a single, it's commercial with a heavybottom Motown beat, a strong lead, and infectious lyrics.
