A Night of Native Rock Celebrating “Grammy Awards Week"
All Native Pop, Indian Country Blues, British Punk Rock, Rock, Hip-Hop
The Authentic Voice of American Indian & Indigenous Music

Los Angeles, CA – 13th annual Red Nation Celebration Concert Series – an
American Indian Music Movement a night filled with rich culture,
contemporary tribal voices, and pop culture during the lost important
weeks of the music industry “Grammy Awards Week.” February 8, 2011 at “On
the Rox” in Hollywood on the Sunset Strip. Masters of Ceremony the
“Fabulous Baker Twins” (Stellat'en First Nation reservation in northern
British Columbia).

“It’s a night not to miss” stated founder/recording artist Joanelle Romero
(Apache/Cheyenne), who was discovered by Legendary Leonard Cohen and
toured on Sarah McLachlan “Lilith Fair Tour.” It’s important that this
concert series be supported and attended by music industry professionals
and the general public.

We are very excited this year; Red Nation is launching “The National
American Indian & Indigenous Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, Inc.”;
“Native Music Matters (NMM)”; and “Native Women in Recovery in the Arts,”
quotes Linda Tenequer, Red Nation board member. In order for our voice to
remain authentic, we need to create and run our own programs and
institutions.

In addition to the evening, our Red is Green Carpet Gala Event - “Native
Fashion with Social Action” will be filled with invited celebrity guests;
What will you be wearing during Grammy Award Week on the Red is Green
Carpe.

Red Nation Celebration “Concert Series” (RNCCS) is an annual concert
series since 1998 held during Grammy Awards week in Los Angeles, CA
(exception to the rule 2003 RNCCS became an official Grammy event held in
New York City), presenting contemporary & traditional American Indian &
Indigenous Music; keeping native sound at the forefront of the most
important weeks of music industry.

Red Nation Celebration was established out of a direct need. RNC has its
roots in Santa Fe, New Mexico, produced during the famous Indian Market
(1995 to 1997); RNC pioneered the music movement during Indian Market. In
1995 there wasn’t any contemporary American Indian music being performed.
In 1998, Red Nation moved to Los Angeles to be produced during the most
important weeks of the music industry “The Grammy Awards Week.” In 2003,
Red Nation Celebration “Concert Series” became an “Official Grammy Event”
and went on to become Red Nation Celebration’s “Signature” Event.

Red Nation’s success is a revolution and presentation of Native music from
all over Indian Country. Red Nation was recognized as a groundbreaking
concept and became a widely publicized event of national stature. Red
Nation has successfully featured American Indian recording artists, Grammy
winners and nominees, and has been a launching pad for numerous American
Indian musicians who have been signed to labels since performing at Red
Nation’s concerts over the last 16 years.

This year’s Red Nation’s Featured Artists include: SAGE
(Apache/Cheyenne/Lakota) – Award-winning actress/singer/songwriter/
Musician. Star of Steven Steinberg’s “INTO the WEST” and ABC/Hallmark
