For the first time, Native American music has a category in the GRAMMY awards. The Recording Academy will stage the 43rd Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 21 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. The show will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network from 8 - 11 p.m.

In the Best Native American Music Album category, the nominees are Black Lodge Singers (Tribute To The Elders), Joseph Fire Crow (Cheyenne Nation), Lakota Thunder (Veterans Songs), Joanne Shenandoah (Peacemaker's Journey) and the Gathering Of Nations Pow Wow compilation. The addition of the category reflects a growing Native American music scene and the Recording Academy's continued outreach to this vital arts community.

In the this, and the next issues of "Canku Ota" we will profile the artists that have been nominated.
