Happy Holidays from PWNA: Remembering Christmas Pasts
Happy holidays! Please join us in remembering children on the reservations and Christmas pasts by watching our Native American holiday video. We hope you enjoy and share it with friends and family.
The music in the video is provided by Lumbee / Tuscarora recording artist Jana Mashonee. The beautiful lyrics are sung in Navajo by Jana, who generously granted PWNA permission to use her music. Jana’s album, “American Indian Christmas,” features 10 classic Christmas songs – including the one in this video – sung in 10 Native languages and accompanied by an orchestra of traditional Native instruments.
Jana is a nine-time Native American Music Awards winner and best pop-recording artist of 2013. Her music has been featured on Discovery Channel and Redbox and she’s previously performed at presidential inaugurations and Carnegie Hall.
Until next year, blessings from all of us at PWNA to all of you!
