Northern Cree

1 Nomination

Pow Wow - ContemporaryCree

- 8-time Grammy nominee Northern Cree are the world’s premier Pow-Wow
and Round Dance singing group. Its dedication to Cree culture, its Cree
language and the Pow-Wow way of life have touched countless people and
inspired generations of young Native Americans to further explore their rich
culture.

- In 2017, Northern Cree recently performed live on the pre-telecast of the
59th Grammy Awards with a groundbreaking performance of a Cree Round
Dance song that was webcasted live around the globe. This marked the first
time traditional Native American/Indigenous music has ever performed on
the Grammy stage.


- Northern Cree’s drum keeper, Steve Wood, has this to say about the title:
“When thinking of a title for this album, I thought of the relationships we
had built within the circle of Northern Cree and the heartfelt way that the
Cree people recognize their siblings in our language….Northern Cree is
much more than just singers and drummers. We are family. We
are nitisanak!”
