This October, four American Indian artists will receive the Community Spirit Award, joining 76 other artists who have received the honor since the program’s inception. In addition, six artists who were honored in 2013 at ceremonies in their tribal communities will participate in the evening celebration at The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The celebration consists of an awards ceremony interwoven with fully-produced performances by Native artists.
