First Americans in the Arts (FAITA) is a non-profit organization created to recognize, honor and promote American Indian participation in the powerful arena of the entertainment industry, incorporating the areas of film, television, music and theater. FAITA presents an annual award ceremony recognizing outstanding achievement, performances and contribution by and to the Native American Indian entertainment community.
I began attending the annual ceremonies with the fourth one and haven't missed one since. Here are some postings on them:
