2001 NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN MUSIC AWARDS

MANATAKA is proud to salute winners of the 4th Annual Native American Music Awards (NAMA).  The awards ceremony took place at the beautiful Sandia Casino on Saturday, October 20, 2001.   

Native American music awards are listener driven.   Other types of music awards such as rock, pop, jazz, soul, and country, are controlled by industry professionals such as producers, promoters and record company executives who control the votes and the money.  Thus, we can say other types of music awards are dollar driven. 

The loyal fans and listeners of native American music have an equal vote when it comes time to cast a ballot for their favorite artists and recordings. Thus, American Indian music awards better reflect the preferences of their growing listening public.
