XIT is originally based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Members include founder and Native American Music Award winner Tom Bee, (writer of lyrics on Plight of the Redman). The original group known as Original Xit are A. Michael Martinez (singer and lead guitar on Plight), Mac Suazo (narrator and bass on Plight), Lee Herrerra (drums on Plight), and R. C. Gariss (2nd lead guitar on Plight). Original Xit has released 6 cds since 2006, “eXit From the REZ” (2006), “No eXit” (2007), “eXit nOw” (2008), “neXt eXit” (2009), “The Red Album” (2010) and “Forty Years” (2011).

“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.
