Native American Music Awards Tonight!

Frustratingly I haven't had enough free time to blog anything here about food this spring.  With the end of the school year coming up, the home schooling is top priority.  We also have had long distance relatives visit and a storage from moving to clear out this spring (I just love moving dusty boxes!).  I hope to get back to some blogging later in the month.  In the mean time, please check out the Native American Music Awards this evening.  They are being streamed live from Niagara on NAMA website.  Hosting this year is Anishinabe (Ojibwe) comedian Don Kelly from Ottawa.  The late Russel Means (Lakota) is to be inducted into the Native American Music Hall Of Fame.  The awards show is actually to hand out awards for the year 2012.  The show was postponed from last fall due to extensive damages by Hurricane Sandy.  A few featured performers include Radmilla Cody, Big River Cree, Jana (Mashonee) and the second generation southern rockin' Blackfoot.  Additionally, a living legend award will be given to Nelly Furtado.  The whole thing kicks off @ 8 PM EDT.  Meanwhile, over at my Scare Me On Fridays blog, we celebrating all day with Native American actresses in horror film.  We are also celebrating that it is Mother's Day today in Mexico!  Here is a video from Jana (Lumbee/Tuscarora) from a few years back.
