Wonderful music for today from CerAmony
I love learning and meeting new people on the internet. Today I did a “mission” on Empire Avenue by Kevin Megin @krazykanuckKM. He was introducing the new video from his friends. I was blown away by the video!
I had to learn more about these men and their talents.
The video is so relevant to my family and everything going on in America today. This band was formed in the Cree Nation in Canada. I love the Native American traditions and history, even though it can be quite painful to learn of the horrible mistreatment they endured.
Pakesso Mukash and Matthew Iserhoff were both talented from the beginning as children. They are committed to the Cree Nation, and have in 2011 were awarded with the Juno for Aboriginal Album Of The Year.
They are very close, and Matthew married Pakesso’s sister.
Matthew was hit by a truck in a horrible accident at age 7, and nearly died. The doctors were able to save him, but did have to remove one of his legs. His brother speaks of his amazing and inspirational attitude towards live. Matthew’s brother is Deputy Grand Chief Ashly Iserhoff of the Cree Nation.
Their Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/ceramony.
It is wonderful to find such a talented and dedicated group with such an interesting history.
