Every year, the Native American Music Awards, or NAMA, recognizes the achievements of Native American musicians in the United States and Canada. The organization was founded in 1998 and awards Nammys to both Native and non-Native performers.

NAMA nominees are chosen by a national panel of advisers, and the winners selected by both the panel and the general public. Voting for each year's awards begins in late-summer, with the ceremony usually held in November in Upstate New York.

As a teaser, NAMA has posted more than 200 new and contemporary Native American recordings at their website, available to stream online.

Click here and press the 'play' button on any song title to begin the stream.

Hear the late Jim Boyd, the Blue Mountain Tribe, XIT, Clan Destine, Shelley Morningsong, and many others.
