February 20, 2017

A Grammy shout-out and more, water protectors wind down, and Valentine’s Day, Native style. This and more grabbed headlines, and attention, in Indian country during The Week That Was, February 19, 2017.

GRAMMY LOVE: The seven-time Grammy-nominated Native drum group Northern Cree and Carla Morrison performed “Cree Cuttin’” and “Un Beso” at the 59th GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony. Group leader Steve Wood called it an amazing tribute to Indian country and First Nations people. The NoDAPL movement against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) also made a Grammy appearance, of sorts: Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, gave a shout-out to the water protectors.
