As KOLD‘s Christina Stymfal explains, all five nominees for the Best Waila Recording are from the Tohono O’odham Nation – meaning that tribe will see its first Native American Music Award:

    The ceremony will be held on Nov. 12 at the Seneca Entertainment Center in the Seneca Casino & Hotel in Niagara Falls, New York. Voting is open to the public.

    Tohono O’odham nominees:

    * Gertie & the TO Boyz for their album “A Tribute to Augustine Lopez Sr.”
    * Native Creed for “Cumbiafied Nativez”
    * Native Thunder for “Get’n Down”
    * Papago Warrior for “Papago Warriors 5″
    * The Cisco Band for “T.C.O.B.”
    * Tohono O’odham Braves for “25 Years of Waila Music”
