Editors’ Notes It only took about 200 years after the first Columbus Day for the greater United States to realize that maybe it was the Native and Indigenous people Columbus helped displace who deserved a holiday instead. Celebrating the widely varied voices of modern Native and Indigenous music across the continent, from pioneers like Buffy Sainte-Marie and Redbone to newer voices like A Tribe Called Red and Nahko, this playlist aims to offer a soundtrack for discovery, reflection, and celebration, but also to help amplify lesser-heard voices in the culture more broadly. Our editors update this playlist regularly, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
