A 1989 concert by Annie Humphrey (Ojibwe) at the American Indian Community House in New York City. Annie Humphrey was born and raised on an Ojibwe Indian reservation in Northern Minnesota. Her father taught her how to play the guitar when she was in the first grade; two years later she was playing piano (she taught herself) and composing her first songs. Humphrey's first national exposure came on the album The Whispering Tree, a collaborative recording of poetry and music by various artists featuring Humphrey. In 2001, Humphrey received The Native American Music Awards' Female Artist of the Year Award, for her first solo album, The Heron Smiled which was also voted Best Folk recording of the year.  Edge of America, also on Makoché, was released in the fall of 2003.
