Red Elk Enterprises/Blatz Music has announced that Red Feather Woman (aka Rose Red Elk) won a "Nammy" at the Eighth Annual Native American Music Awards in the Spoken Word category.

Red Feather Woman’s recording, ‘The Keepers of the Earth’, was selected from five finalists and announced at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, FL. The Nammy awards were established in 1998 to help promote and preserve Native American music throughout the United States and around the world. The organizers of the Native American Music Awards helped establish a Native music category in the Grammys in 2000.

‘The Keepers of the Earth’ includes four Native American traditional stories and four original songs inspired by these ancient tales. It includes special guest Native American Flutist and 2003 Grammy winner Mary Youngblood and was recorded and produced by internationally known producer-solo artist Doug Haywood. Haywood is a former member of Jackson Browne's band (1972-1992), and has worked with many pop music giants, including Linda Ronstadt and Bobbie Gentry.

Internationally acclaimed and an independent artist, Red Feather Woman is one of the leading Native American storytellers, singers, songwriters and authors. She was born on the Fort Peck Reservation in Poplar, Montana, and is an enrolled member of the Sioux/Assiniboine tribes. Rose has captivated audiences for more than 20 years, singing and telling traditional stories to children and adults of all ages.

Red Feather Woman is dedicated to keeping the Native American culture alive, and is the recipient of numerous awards for panel speaking, contemporary music, speeches and storytelling about traditional and modern Indian culture. Her audiences include schools, churches, corporations, museums, theaters, music festivals and universities throughout the United States and Europe.

Red Feather Woman's soon to be released album is a very special combination of the past and present, blending traditional stories, Native instruments and traditional musical themes with contemporary folk and rock sounds. "Distant Drums" is due to be completed in the summer of 2006. CDs can be ordered at: www.redfeatherwoman.com , as can the Nammy winning CD, "The Keepers Of The Earth." Red Feather Woman will appear in September in Milwaukee at The Indian Summer Festival. For bookings, contact Kathy Link 414-744-1437
