FAITA Award announced

I am passing on the news that the First Americans In The Arts (FAITA) has voted for Mary Youngblood for an Outstanding Musical Achievement award this year. Mary will receive her award at the awards event on April 14th, 2007 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.

"First Americans in the Arts is a non-profit organization created to recognize, honor and promote American Indian participation in the powerful arena of the entertainment industry. Incorporating areas of film, television, music and theater. FAITA presents an annual award ceremony recognizing outstanding achievement, performances and contributions by and to the Native American Indian entertainment community
Here's a couple of articles highlighting the last two years' events: 2006, 2005.

We might all have to chip in and buy Mary a bigger mantle to hold all of the music awards she has received lately! We at the NCFC are all proud of Mary's career and where she taken her art.

Cama'i my sister!
