Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – Famed Native American musician actor, speaker, author, and entrepreneur Gary “Litefoot” Davis will serve as the Co-Host for the prestigious 2015 Indigenous Music Awards, taking place tonight in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada at the MTS Centre. This is the 10th edition of the awards show, which was previously called the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards. Litefoot’s music career dates back to 1991, when he became the first American Indian rap artist with the release of “The Money E.P” on his own recording label, Red Vinyl Records. He has won both “Album of the Year” and “Artist of the Year” honors from the Native American Music Awards. He is an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma.
“It is an honor to serve as co-host for the Indigenous Music Awards,” said Litefoot. “IMA brings together the best of Native music across North America, and celebrates a rich and diverse culture that we all share. I look forward to joining with my fellow musicians and entertainers as we honor and celebrate their valuable contributions to indigenous music.”
The IMAs kicks off a busy month for Litefoot, whose music was recently added to iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and other online outlets. Litefoot’s catalog can be found on his website, or by clicking here. Eight of Litefoot’s albums are available for purchase, including the award-winning “Native American Me” and his latest album “Relentless Pursuit.”
