HEARTBEAT is a song and music picture from the Rockumentary film and VH1 World Alert Special, "Makoce Wakan: Sacred Earth". HEARTBEAT was written by Robby Romero in support of Native Peoples Religious Freedom, the protection of Sacred Sites, and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which was passed in 1993. In 1994 the American Indian Religious Freedom Act Amendments were also passed as Public Law 103-344, providing legislative protection for spiritual and religious practices of the Native American Church. HEARTBEAT was released on the ground-breaking alter-native self-titled EP RED THUNDER and LP MAKOCE WAKAN, and is available at our Village Market.

Since VH1 began airing Inside Music segments featuring Robby Romero the Viewer Services Hotline has been bombarded by calls.
