Thank you for supporting the World's Leading Resource for Contemporary and Traditional
Native American Music Initiatives ! 

Founded in 1998, the Native American Music Awards & Association was born out of a need to provide greater opportunity and recognition for traditional and contemporary Native American musicians.

We have received letters of acknowledgement from former President George Bush and a proclamation from NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Our national music archive has become the world's largest Native American music archive in the world. As part of our annual monitoring and research of Native American music recordings, we successfully proposed a new category for Native American music in the Grammies in 2000. We have trained Native American youth in concert events and productions; helped MTV Networks establish a cultural diversity program to recruit Native American employees, educate and entertain employees of parent company, Viacom, placed Native American artists in collaborations with mainstream artists; returned a lost song of the late Apache leader, Geronimo, back to his family and continue to present special music concerts and festivals from Alaska to New York City.

Today, the Native American Music Association (NAMA) has grown to become the country’s leading source for preserving and promoting the songs of American Indians from all four directions. The Awards are honoring our songmakers, fostering pride, providing national exposure, and celebrating their gift of music with others around the world. Their personal and professional contributions and the determination and dedication of our volunteer staff lasting, continually creates magical opportunities of Native pride and musical excellence.
