MCTC’s American Indian Success Program and U.N.I.T.E. (United Nations of Indian Tribes for Education) student organization present the 19th Annual American Indian Evening of Poetry and Music on November 23.

Featuring Annie Humphrey
Native American singer/songwriter Annie Humphrey was born and raised on Leech Lake reservation in Minnesota. Her father taught her to play the guitar when she was in first grade, and two years later she taught herself piano and began writing songs. After attending high school and community college, she teamed with guitarist Don Robinson and they made the 1989 album For the Children. In 1995, she made her first solo album, Justice Hunter.
Annie Humphrey has since released The Heron Smiled, Edge of America and The Sounds of Ribbons. She currently lives on the Leech Lake Reservation with her three children and many animals.

The event will also feature the work of Native poets Bobby Wilson and Marcie Rendon, and the Hoka-Hey Drum Group.
