Nahko and Medicine for the People
Medicine Tribe! We did it Our album 'HOKA' won record of the year at Native American Music Awards - NAMA LIVE  This is a huge recognition by our indigenous relatives and it also serves as an opportunity to build bridges. The truth is we need each other right now and the music can be that glue. From Mauna Kea to Standing Rock and all across Indian country I want to say Thank you. We are blessed. We are grateful. We are strong as a mountain.
