Not too long ago we brought you the video for "Sisters" by A Tribe Called Red, with the admittedly bombastic claim that the clip would take the DJ trio "to the next level." Well, the video did get nominated for a MuchMusic Video award (it didn't win) and the Video of the Year Aboriginal People's Choice Music Award (we'll find out September 12). ATCR was also ranked among the 10 best performances at Bonnarooby Billboard.com and picked as one of the "45 Best Things We Saw at Bonnaroo" by Rollingstone.com.
But back to "Sisters" — Canadian Native culture maven Lisa Charleyboy has posted a great piece to UrbanNativeMagazine about the making of the video, which stars Kawennahere Devery Jacobs, Sarain Fox, and Aria Evans as road-tripping sisters.
"These ladies are not only beautiful, they are all talented dancers, playful and full of positive energy," Charleyboy writes. "Just what the doctor ordered. I totally wish I could’ve gone on this road trip and been on set with them." Here's the video; for more pictures and Charleyboy commentary visit UrbanNativeMagazine.
