More about Humphrey and Dunn
Winner of the Native American Music Awards for Best Female Artist, Humphrey was born and raised on an Ojibwe Indian reservation in Northern Minnesota. Her first album, "The Heron Smiled," reflects her Anishinaabe heritage and vision and includes Native American and folk music as well as love songs. Humphrey's second album, "On Edge of America," features her vocals, acoustic guitar and piano and focuses on American experiences, while eliminating social boundaries with engaging lyrics that touch everyone. On both albums and in concert, Humphrey's music is noted for it's passion for social justice, environmental protection and political involvement.
Humphrey will be joined by her mother, Dunn, who teaches cultural activities to youth on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation in Northern Minnesota. Dunn is the author of two books, "When Beaver Was Very Great," and "Grandmother's Gift."
The event, sponsored by the ARCC Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, is free and open to the public. Reserve a ticket by calling the Anoka-Ramsey Community College Student Affairs Office at 763-433-1549.
