Posted on

Two local acts are up for trophies at the Native American Music Awards (NAMMY), a U.S. awards show. Juno-winning rock outfit Eagle & Hawk and multiple Canadian Aboriginal Music Award-winning folk artist Little Hawk are both up for awards at the 8th annual celebrations.

Eagle & Hawk, which was nominated for another Juno this year for Best Aboriginal Recording, is up for two NAMMYs, for Best Pop/Rock Recording for its latest effort Mother Earth and Song/Single of the Year for "Sundancer."

Little Hawk, who recently took home two Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards for 1492-1975, is up for the Native Heart award.

The NAMMYs feature a diverse group of over 125 nominees with origins as far as Alaska and Hawaii and New Zealand in 25 categories. NAMMY is a leading membership-based association composed of artists, music industry professionals, and other professionals dedicated to promoting and preserving Aboriginal music through the United States and around the world. The NAMMYs will take place in Florida on June 8.
