Happy Birthday Tamara! Wishing you a wonderful day!
Love this new site! haven't had time to check the whole thing out cuz it would require a cup of coffee sit down thang.Love love love u!
Having been in love with Tamara Podemski for as long as I can remember; was delighted to have found myself at the 6:25 showing of "The Lesser Blessed" at the downtown Toronto Cineplex Odeon earlier today; and afterward, was inspired to make the following comment: Anita Doron, has slyly adapted to the screen Richard Van Campâ€™s moving tale of a damaged Dogrib Dene teenagerâ€™s dark trials of the soul, in a small community in the North West Territories. Director Doron, apparently through shear charm & modesty, has inspired a brilliant ensemble cast to step up and immerse themselves in Van Campâ€™s compelling characters; transforming the most cynical & psychically isolated urban filmgoer into a concerned family member. Enough good things canâ€™t be said about the actors riveting performances; however, the authorâ€™s wonderful stories within stories and the exceptional cinematography collectively uplift the movie to true tribal spiritual poetry. Unlike so many trite attempts to capture contemporary teen angst these days, the predominantly young & inexperienced cast breathe credible life & literal fire into this small town drama. The two professional actors in the group, Tamara Podemski & Benjamin Bratt, ground the movie with masterful work; as, the young Larryâ€™s mother & step-father wanna-be, struggling to reach out to the floundering young man, while wrestling with their own demons. â€œThe Lesser Blessedâ€ should establish itself as one more award-winning triumph by Canadian artists & filmmakers, proving without a doubt; that yes, it is possible to create movies that matter, for less than $200 million Hollywood megabucks.
Hi Tamara, love your work and your songs....Keep up the great work!!
I just wanted to let you know that I've been following your music for many years. I had a mixed CD that had a few of your songs on it several years ago. That CD became my escape while dealing with the death of my grampa who I was very close to and a divorce. Listening to your voice and music soothed me when I felt like I couldn't handle the jagged edges of life.
Hello Miss Podemski! I wanted to thank you for being such an inspiration to me. I am part Ojibwe myself and a singer as well. Thank you for what you do! You are amazing :)
where can i find a track of the song you sang at the end of the one episode of '"the rez""? the scene in the bar?
AWESOME Sounds . .
Happy Birthday Tamara!! I hope wherever you are today and whatever you're doing, you have a great day doing it!
Dear Ms. Podemski, Respectfully, I want to thank you for sharing your gift with the world. For me, music expresses what cannot be said; music transcends language. Music is very powerful medicine, it can caress the soul, uplift, inspire and open our hearts to freedom of infinite possibilities, healing and inner-peace. I thank your for " inspiring ". Namaste, Elisa D. Mayfield
Strider from Gallup Public Radio in New Mexico. I interviewed you a couple years at Gathering of Nations. Keep up the good work.
Hello Miss Podemski, please keep up the great work.Your are one amazing lady.Thanks Greg Turney from Burridge, Ontario.
Where can you find lyrics for Spirit Voices? Big fan!
Great Voice, have you ever thought or been approached by any of the Native owned Casino's in America to perform at their entertainment venue's
Question, have you been approached by any of the Native owned and run casino's in America to perform? You have a lovely voice.
Happy Birthday Tamara! Another year has passed..so hard to believe that time has gone by so quickly. Hope you have a wonderful day!
You should but your ringtones on http://brinked.com
Tamara, you have wonderful music me and my family fell in love with your music the first time we heard it and i hope you have more to come :)
I remember the day you came to us to GroÃŸhansdorf some years ago! I think it was a good experience. And actually, i still have your business card ;-)
I bought the Spirit Voices album shortly after it's relase in 2003. I've absolutely loved it ever since to the point that when it got stolen about a year ago I cried. In my search to replace it I did find a copy (yay!) and your site here. I wanted to tell you that your music has blessed me and helped me in my life's journey. Thank you very much. PS - Any chance you might come back to North Vancouver BC CA any time soon??? I would love to see one of your shows. PSS - I would love to see more of the song lyrics in Ojibway along with the English translations as I like to sing along with the music and would like to know what the words are and what they mean.
Happy Birthday Tamara!! Hope you have a great day!!
as a native of the land your music has more the just inspire me to always go forward.an Apache of the desert people the wind is a powerful foce.of which am am born under.no of the land ,share this land.but be at peace with one self.so as i say ya teaa!! 'hello'
Love your music. I want to carry your cd;s in my all native gift store in St Jacobs again. Please contact me.
I heard a cut from "Winter Moons" and googled the group and the song, as I noticed the Hebrew passages. I was quite intrigued. I now own several Spirit Nation CDs and love the music, and I am in my mid 60's so I can attest to the transendental character of the music. Thank you so much for your part in it.
Hey Tamara! Your music is wonderful. Can't wait to see you at your next gig. Hugs, dani
Hey Tamara, great to see you have a new website up and running. I've missed seeing you around Ontario. Hope all is going well with you. I have you on my Facebook and your movie Four Sheets to the Wind was an awesome movie. Can't wait to see what new projects you have next. Peace and prosperity.
Welcome back Tamara!! We've missed you!!
My wife Flying Dove and I had your CD Spirit Voices and enjjoyed it very much. We lost our home to a fire in Dec. 2008 and lost everything. We have been trying to find another copy of it but have not. We now live at 3104 Ivy Ave SW, Huntsville, Al 35805. If you can let me know how I can get a copy please do so. Thank you for your time and may the Creator walk with you in your jorney.
thank you for the music
like your style.
I want to Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn more about you and the work you do. I am honoured to do my presentation about you and your work...Thank you so very much
I love your songs, they really bring me back to my roots ^_^ thank you so much for sharing your beautiful voice with us...and great singing at G.O.N. 2010!!
Love your voice and songs! Love you Spirit child.
Yeeeeeaaaaah! You're my idol! Amazing! I cried when I heard "she knows better". Would you sign my t-shirt?
I really enjoyed your performance tonight during Miss Indian World. I so enjoyed your lyrics and music. Many blessings upon you and all that you do. Keep up the wonderful music, you're very inspirational.
You have such a beautiful voice, thanks so much for sharing it with the rest of us!
Tamara!!! Thank you! Your songs are wonderful and powerful, like I have got to know you. IÂ´ve once won a CD, when you were singing at my school and it has become one of my favorites! "Peace & Love! <3" back!
I have been listening to your music for a few years and I love it. Your talent is untouchable!!
Hi Tamara~ Thank you for your powerful performance in "The Edward Curtis Project" which I witnessed today (1/31/10). As I watched this play unfold I reflected on the frustration I've felt over the years that I have worked with so many of my Aboriginal relatives...frustration that the larger community in which we live doesn't 'get' what is really going on with our people. I felt that Marie's writing addressed this issue in an impactful way; I do hope that this work is presented in larger venues and to a wider audience. I am currently working with "The Street Sisters" film project, www.streetsisters.ca, which you may find interesting. ...And I like your music too:) Thanks again for your work. Blessings, Susan
just saw Ed Curtis Project-- you were magnificent in it. the images, complexity and depth of experience will stay with me for a long time. thank you. thank you for doing what you do.
You rock girl. Tamara keep up the great work, and be safe with all thats going on in the world. Gord
Tamara, You are incredible! Talent, intelligence, strength, and beauty all rolled into one sexy package. Love ya and the work you do!
Happy New Year, Tamara. Good luck with your upcoming show in Vancouver!
I recognize the song and the music I can feel the meaning, I would like to verify if I am correct. I need the lyrics to Eternal Circle, Understanding, Innocence, Two Hearts, Giving Thanks, Healing Spirit, Women's round ( I have danced this one) and Earth Lullaby, from the Spirit Voices by Ceshia Anaquod from the Refections CD advertisement. I would really appreciate it. I actively started by "chanting"/meditating in 2000. Music can "envoke/manifest many things. I pray for positive change for all persons.

Happy Birthday Tamara!!

Chi meegwetch, Tamara! Meeting you in Hamburg in the Metropolis Cinema on Monday touched my heart and soul & still is very inspiring. Esp. your song Meegwetch & the music video - and the words we shared - keep coming to my mind, the song to my lips... Aaaand I've begun to learn Ojibwa now! Feels like having met a spirit friend & like meeting again! :-) Blessings. Still feeling connected, Ron
Nice film... I like natives and the music, one of my family's best friend is playing country music, his sister is married with a Cherokee. Greetings from Germany.

Stand proud. Your day will come (and you look GOOD on red). I believe in you.
Tansi Tamara, I sent you an email from myspace but did not recieve a response from you. I want to do a feature on you and your music for our radio station here in Hobbema Alberta. I want to do an interview if possible and make a station Id.
I'm just finishing Eclipse in for the Stephanie Meyers Twilight series and when it came to the character of Emily, I immediately thought of you. You can rock that role. No one has been cast yet for the production of New Moon, but you should advocate for the part. I personally think they should cast an actual aboriginal woman!! :) Take care!!
Loved your performance, and your style!! Much love to you girl
Kia ora Tamara from Aotearoa NZ. I Love your music and do my kids. I'm a Maori Lakota woman and fashion designer. I love what you do, your spirit glows with the gifts you have. Much Love, Maakarita Snowflake X

just wanted to let you know that lana morissette is having nish idol 5 on friday,october 24th 2008 @ the native canadian centre of toronto. the # is 416.964.9087 hope to see you there...
Hello, just wanted to let you know While I was in the East Coast I saw your picture in every corner of The National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. HOW COOL WAS THAT! I thought thats our girl doing her thing!
Hi Tamara: I was just at the Starbucks I regularly frequent. I was reading the paper and a book beside you as you were being interviewed by a reporter of some kind. I learned she shares the same birthday as Leonard Cohen. I was attempting to read my book, however I was only half successful. I was only half successful because I was half listening to your story. I found listening to you tell your story very compelling for a variety of reasons. However, the main reason I feel compelled to write to you is to make a humble request of you. During your interview one thing you said was the following "Why shouldn't I be successful? Why shouldn't I dream big?" Your nomination at the Spirit awards did not happen by accident. It happened to keep you there. You're supposed to continue the journey. Please respect the good and the bad parts of the journey but please don't deter from your path. I really respect the fact you're chasing your dream. Please don't give up. I'm rooting for you. If you haven't read this book already please go and buy it. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Feel free to keep me posted on your progress. Patrick
I sang your song "Standing Strong" about a month ago in Africa at W.A.R (women against rape) and they loved your song.
Your Spirit Voices CD is just so amazing! What a beautiful voice you have. I'm glad I found this page! I will definitely be watching for more of your work. Many blessings to you!!
aboslutely amazing. the songs are beautiful. www.twoshields.com
You sing such sweet songs. Will miss your music while the theater steals you away for now. Can't wait till you play LA again.
Dear tamara My brother and me meets you in konstanz in KI.KUZ. Your music and kultur are verry beautiful. We are comming back if you are comming back to konstanz. IÂ´m never forget you aischa lock
My prayer for you is that you will see, before too long that there is no reason to join a church or to be a member of any church. So long as you are truly born of the Spirit, then you are a member of the family of the Living God & placed in His Kingdom. Itâ€™s a matter of growing & understanding that you can learn to be led by Godâ€™s Spirit in an organism rather than being part of an organization.
I was lucky enough to work there andeverytime you guys were on whether it was practicing or the actual show just touched my heart and gave me butterflies.
After a long daynightday, trains, planes, cellphone out of battery and no one to remember to pack my charger, no reception in the woods, and forgetting the calling card number, all i want to do is come home and be with your sweet music.
Thanks for your inspirational songs!
I have your "Spirit Voices" CD and I love it!! It just relaxes my spirit when I stressed or when I just need that extra burst. Thank you. I have the blood of two very strong cultures running through my viens-Native American (Blackfoot) and African American. My Native American spirit is very strong within me. I am very in tone with nature and respect nature. I home even reflex my Native background--it has earthy colors which I feel relexes also my spirit and state of mind. I beleive in healing of the spirit and respecting the sayings/traditions of my forefathers. Your music is an inspiration and it bares withness to you soul. Continue to inspire, expecially the youth for they are our future. Once again, thank you.
I like This site! Thanks!
Any new movies or TV shows in the works?
..your cd Spirit Voices was a gift to me from a friend..I have Objibway and Mohawk blood and the ancestors have been calling to me...your music has helped me connect to these ancestors that have been trying toi get my attention for so long so that in the end the prophecies may unravel as is foretold by the grandmothers and grandfathers that whisper events to come...I was wondering if the lyrics to the balance of the songs to that cd are available and if not is there any way i could get them?? i am particularly looking to understand the "Women's round" song though all are special...your are truly gifted...thank you...
aahnii my beautiful sister...kewl page....first time i seen u was on dance me outside...then at the skydom pow wow....and i still got your autographt in a frame...anyhow you take care and keep up the good work and your one awsome role model for our peoples and young ladies as myself i speak against gangs and started up redpower canada to support major protests throught out all our nations...take care and always meegwetch/sago.....pCe
You were awesome yesterday!!!
Well done as always Tamara! Keep up the good work, would love to see you perform in Toronto, but for now I guess it has to be on TV, good either way. Happy 2008 National Aboriginal Solidarity Day to all.
Watched your set on the APTN Yellowknife location for the Aboriginal Day festivities. Unfortunately, they only broadcast a couple of your songs, but as usual, you were terrific. Glad to hear that you're back home again!! We're happy to have you back with us Tamara!
Awesome show at the Westfest - schvitzing and all :-)
Just watched you on stage at Westfest. Thank you for the truly amazing songs you chose to sing.
I would like to purchase-crack in the floor-winter moons-and from the drum. I have tried several retailers in Stillwater and Tulsa OK but have been unsuccessful. If you know how i can purchase these cd's i would appreciate your help. Thank you. I have just purchased four sheets to the wind but have yet had time to view it-hopefully this weekend. I have not heard any of these cd's but i trully enjoy spirit voices so i don't believe i can go wrong with the above ones. If you can help me in this search please do. Tamara has a beautiful and gifted voice. Thanks for any help.
Hey Tamara and greetings from Winnipeg!

Infinite Blessings to Tamara. Your Toronto fans love you and wish you the very best of everything. Thank you for sharing the beauty of your voice and heritage with us. Meegwetch is my favorite song and I liked learning about giving an offering to nature, it inspired me in a big way. Thank you. :)
Tamara, you are my Idol You came to my school a couple of weeks ago and when you started to sing with the drum, you made me cry. you are such a warm and giving person. And you stayed true to yourself, and I really admire that. You are amazing! you are a jewish native person, it can't get any better than that. Ever since you came to my school well........Will you sing at my BAt Mitzvah! please anyway I love you so much And I hope I get the honour of seeing you again

With what you ask...well it was like you wrote the song "ignore" detailing it. Thanks so much. I have felt peace and perspective which is what I was needing. I haven't even looked at your website yet I was just for 2 days typing in parts of the song I remembered to see if it would come up. So glad I found it. Thanks Wendy Wendy

Yeah Tamara! Congrats on the FOX pick-up and I hope to see you Wednesday night for the "Four Sheets to the Wind" premier. Take care.
I bought your cd loved it.one song stuck in my head women's round..love this song.........wish you much success ...never forget we are one and the same no one person is any greater or lesser value.we are all the same....... Random thoughts....... Oh Great Spirit Heals us recover us once again. Oh Great Spirit take us on journeys once began... Haunted Spirits Haunted Journeys Haunted believe. Oh Great Spirit lift us once again from the dust Sacred grounds.. Heals us recover us once Again Dragon re entered the land. Eyes blazing fire Nostrils smelting fire Hot breath scorching fire. Traveling land consuming serpents many this day also chastise innocent. Hand from our Great Spirit rises from the fire slaying the dragon. In burning fire Great Spirit shows his face one same feather. Sacred ground I visit many shall never see. Many shall even disagree. Many shall leave trashy debris. I pack away man leaves even more trash for me. I pack not away tie in tall trees. Shall his eyes haunted open to the dirty way free. Rattling haunted sounds voice crying mother soft breeze. This family our left behind family tree. We fight for Peace run from brighter future our children are the dying people we. a.k.a. greyxwolfx Grave If my words spoke sights from things unclean. They would just spread rumors & lies things foreseen. Eyes being roadways to any Spirit seen.. Voices men seek are not from words spoken. Foundation rock we stand grows Spirit broken. We listen to the winds blowing. Yet we listen not to Spirit from plants or trees growing. Men are the animal only trophy with out meanings. Protect,understand,use lightly gracious beings. Looking out my back door looking in. I be no God only a Spirit within. Only blind shall lead the blind. Staying lost more faults we find. Faults I speak only for perfect hearted. There hearts are sad this journey they started. Every person having faults filled. Fountain youth putting back cups refilled. Do you have purpose in life only to take.

When I first herd your music and your beautiful voice I could hardly believe my ears, I played Spirit Voices over and over. It is still my favorite CD. Love you. Keep the music comming.
Hope you come back to New Mexico soon. Maybe the Gathering of Nations 2008. So how was your stay in Santa Fe? Please share that in your journal. Thanks
Your music is so beautiful thank you
Thank you Tamara you pick most great shots thank you for the plug. brake a leg
hooolllyyy girl, your film is the opening night special! box office only opens Oct.1, darnnit!have to wait two whole weeks!!the agony! :)
will you be in Miami any time soon..I would love to see you singing or you are welcome to come to my shop American Apothecary of Quailroost in Miami. I would love to have you here. We have alot of Spiritual followers
Caught your performance at Indian Market this month in Santa Fe - bought "Tamara" & Spirit Voices".The show was awesome - you and Karen make a great team. "Roundlake" is a great song, but "Standing Strong" sent chills down my spine. suggestion- some of the arrangements could be even better if you added violin and slide 12-string guitar to the mix. Ever come to Montana to perform - maybe Bozeman?
Thanks for e-mailing me about the cd. I love the TAMARA cd. Good luck in Hollywood...but somehow I think you won't need it with all that talent.
You were great in Santa Fe. Thank you for taking pictures with us and signing my c.d. I hope to see you soon in New Mexico again. Its true, its true! Remember that line? We had you saying it. Many blessings and prayers along your way.
Hey girl!!! It was so awesome listening to you perform in Santa Fe!! Thanks for the pics and the autograph.. Keep up the good work!!
Saw you in Santa Fe for the first time ever. Your performance was very moving. You song "Roundlake" brought tears to my eyes as I sat with my boyfriend and still does everytime I listen to it. Your voice is so beautiful that I brought your CD and just had to write you. The CD is just beautiful and enjoyable.
NATVE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS You got my vote!

Fara's beautiful song was pieced perfectly with your dance routine! Hope to see you guys next year in toronto! GREAT JOB! KAT

Greetings from Wikwemikong. Met you through Audrey & Marjorie. Checking the internet for information on Peterbourgh and you showed up. My son and his girfreind are living there and they are making me a first time Grandma. Was serching some information on the place. What a small world we live in. Take care Laura
Thank you for your beautiful spirit and sharing your talents!
Hi Tamara, I heard you speak yesterday at Walpole Island. I was one of the student researchers that was with the research group. I just wanted to say that my husband and I both really enjoyed your presentation. What stuck with me was your perspective on how to ask each day what you can do to make your dream come true. I think it's easy to get lost and overwhelmed by the big picture and the big goals and lose sight of the small steps that it takes to get there. Thanks for reminding me of that and for sharing your wisdom and music! Ange
Hey you! I just saw your music video on T.V. You look amazing and what a great song! I wish you all the best and hope to see you soon!
First time here looking forward to the site
dear tamara; it was a treat to connect with you again at your recent concert. i have been enjoying listening to your new "tamara" cd; and, bruce's excellent video of "meegwetch". i first met bruce while studying film at rye high. i look forward to getting some feedback from you on my new "hunger of the heart" cd; and, my new draft of my "false face" screenplay. it would be nice to hook up for a chat. my cell phone number is (647) 830-9451. best of luck with your creative ventures. happy trails, stephen mcp
Hey there Tamara! Congratulations for your success at CAMA this year! I was hoping to meet you again (you signed my CD in T.O while you were getting your nails done:P).

'til another day :D Much luv, your fan, ~Mekwan
Hey Tamara, Great night last night. I was disappointed to have missed so much of your set. Thanks for stopping to take a look at my design. Textiles are one of my great loves. Let me know if my artistry can be of use to you. From one dancer to another... Deb G.
I live up north and recently made a trip to montreal where my van was broken into, all my cds were stolen(tamara, digging roots, eagle and hawk, U2, blue rodeo, jim cuddy...) but yours was the one I beaded to the most, gotta get another copy, inspires my beadworkwork. great stuff Marc
Just saw the show at Bar Italia. You are SO talented. Truly inspirational with honest emotions. Thank you very, very much.
Hi Tamara, I'm always amazed at everything that you have accomplished. You are a real inspiration! keep up the great work!

I am soo very proud of you Tamara! I heard you on the radio on CBC and was so impressed. You deserve the world, and it looks like you are on your way to getting it. Many hugs and hope to see you soon!
YAâ€™ATâ€™EEHâ€™ I recently discovered you on the cover of "National Museum of the American Indain" magazine. After checking out your web-site it confirmed the passion i feel for your work (and you). You are truly awsome and a true steward for the Native American people. Keep the Peace, Ricky - Red Wing
Hi Tamara. Surfed in from your myspace page. We met during your Justice/Health Careers Role Model tour thru Northern Sask, in Montreal Lake. Keep up the excellent work. Larry
I loved the article and pics of you in the last NMAI. I've never seen the magazine before. Impressive. I dreamt of doing the things you do. But only a dreamt. I can't wait to see this film. Being an Aleut of Alaska, I think we need more Natives such as yourself to look up to. Let us know we can do what ever we want! I know I'm impressed. You are a true inspiration!
Miigwech - Thank you for the wonderful music! Keep up the great work.
Nya Weh "Thank You!" Tamara.... for adding me to your circle of Friends on myspace.... Happy Spring !
Hey Tamara, Missed you big time at Piperâ€™s for CMW last night. Heard youâ€™re stuck out at the other end of the country and couldnâ€™t make it â€“ all the best with the choreography there, hope it's going good. It was a great night last night despite not seeing you. The boys (Derek and Jacque) were awesome as usual. Saw an artist new to me, duCharme â€“ also excellent and it was all topped off by Billy Joe Green, oh yeah! We were pigginâ€™ out on the music big time. How often do you get a group like that in one night? All it was missing was your sparkle and shine. Catch you next time, babe. Oh, and major thumbs up on Sundance.
Wow. I am smitten. Gorgeous, talented and with a refined sense of social justice. Wow.
Beautiful cover on NMAI magazine. You ROCK hun!!! lol . Wish the article was longer. Congrats on the award at Sundance!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey YOU! Congrats on the awards!! sweet.
Hello, I heard your music on Aborigional Voices Radio in Calgary, AB and I love your music. I'm not surprised you won the awards, congrats. Your writing where I am at, what I feel. THANK YOU! Keep up the amazing work...I agree with Deborah, you encourage, give our troubles voice (a beautiful one too!) Thank you.
Do you remember a young girl in Winnipeg, Mb. That wanted your cd but had no money but give you a ring for a trade? Do you still have it, if so , email and say HI! By the way I worked with Herbie.HE knows who I am. HE great too. How can I get your last cd?
hey there Tamara i was in Yk for the Aborginal Career Fair. with the students from Deh Gah
Hey Tamara, Congrats! Well deserved. Congrats to the others as well. Not just the winners but all the artists. Native musicians are the most creative in music today and there is no more powerful voice than that of Native women. I want to encourage you and all the women I saw perform this past week. Know there is nothing to apologize for. When all these beautiful women say their songs come from places of pain it needs to be stated as a fact and said with pride and confidence, never apology. Those places of pain are places of power and you are sharing that power with us. And we are grateful. You encourage us, you grant us insight, you give our own troubles voice and the sharing makes the burden lighter. Thank you. Deb G.
Congratulations and love always.
A friendly hello from Ottawa, Congratulations on your success at the awards, your album is truly inspiring, makes me want to get up and start making some music. Best of luck at your next performance. Miigwetch

CONGRATULATIONS!! Fantastic news about the award nominations for 'TAMARA'. Well deserved! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed on the 24th for you. As for the person who keeps leaving the nasty messages, just consider the source. Probably some idiot with too much time on their hands. You just keep on singing and being the beautiful spirit you are.
Hello Tamara!! I will be looking forward to attending one of your concerts, coming up. I hope we get a chance to talk. Wish you all the best, you are a bona fide talent in everyone's eyes.
Hey Tamara, HAPPY B-DAY, sorry i forgot hehe lol, and as for that coward, he/she can just sit back and try as hard as they please to knock one of the best artists in all of Canada, bc Im sure it wont phase a beautiful and strong Professional like your self. Its like my grandma used to say, jealousy kills only the jealous! Rock on Girl!!!
Hey Tamara, Great show at the Horseshoe last night. Iâ€™d have been happy to see you do the whole album. When youâ€™ve got that many great tunes on a cd what do you cut for a show? Tough choices. Really missed â€˜So Damn Beautifulâ€™ and â€˜She Knows Betterâ€™. But hey, time constraints I understand all too well. And Iâ€™m just grateful to be able to bring my shakers and knockers and do my â€˜thangâ€™. Whatâ€™s better than playing or dancing along live to great music? Hereâ€™s a challenge for all you would be groupies out there. Check the calendar and show your face. Believe me, itâ€™s worth the drive (walk, bus, cabâ€¦). How many of us get the opportunity either by talent, luck or hard work to touch the lives of millions. Very few. Tamara speaks to us and for us in so many ways, she is a Star deserving of our support. So come cheer her along so she knows that despite big business and the foggy, foggy road weâ€™re out here and we love her and support what sheâ€™s doing. Oh, and bonus â€“ she always has cdâ€™s to autograph for you. So come get them right from the source! Best of luck the CAMAâ€™s! Deb G.
Guess we missed your birthday by a couple of days but like they say "Its better late then ever". Hope to see you next summer in the holy land, we'll have a great time.Kisses....
Hey Tamara! I'm a day early, but just wanted to make sure I wished you a Happy Birthday for tomorrow. Hope you have yourself a really great day!!
Hi Tamara, I realized I never signed your book, so I figured I would do so to say Congratulations on the nominations! I'm sure we won't get them televised here in the States, so you have to post & let us all know if you win. Best of luck to you, and hope to see you in NYC sometime soon! :)
# Bill Buckholtz Says: I found your site by accident and I love it! Can't wait to hear you sing and/or see you perform! Here's how I got to this site. I know you did not sing on the first Spirit Nation CD (and I will promptly go out this week and buy it), but, I've been trying to find the lyrics (and translation) to the first CD for over a year. The music was co-produced by David Evans and Jimmy Waldo. I believe the language is Lakota and I listen to this CD almost everyday. I am trying to contact the artist or writers, or someone familiar with this CD and can help me or direct me to someone who can. It would mean alot to me! Thanks. Bill
Tell your sis i love her profile. I wish i can know her. Jennifer I'm speaking of.
I run a preschool and I love to play Spirit Voices on repeat all day long. It relaxes me while I work and the kids are starting to sing along with all the songs. I wish I could get the lyrics in Saulteaux rather than translated to English.
Amazing, Awesome; I just can't put it in to words...ya just keep goin girl just remember as kye7e would say " sit & breath for 2 to 5 min." take care of yourself, your friend from Alkali Lake, B.C. P.S every one say hi! Esketemc First Nation
You Are Awesome Girl. I really Enjoyed Your Show In Collingwood Ontario This Summer Of 2006. At The Art And Craft.. You Hit Home With Some Songs. Keep Up The Good Work Tamara BigD
Thank you for the beautiful music. My grandbaby who is 5 month's old only sleeps to your song (Eternal Circle) When my husband sings it or we play it, he gets so relaxed that he falls right into a deep sleep.. So Thank You again :)
Hey there I met you before, I hope you remember yeah.. i love the music keep it going as for me im still working on my demo its a mixture of r&b, rock, and my native culture i think it will be alright.. well later tamara..x0x0x
I really love you as Carla in ready or not. You rock. Keep always up the good work even if bad people say mean things about you. not that they do but if. just don't listen at them:) Love ya =)
you are so cool
Beautiful. What more can I say about Tamara
Just listened to your song called "Meegwetch" very inspiring and just reminds me of what we have and also a good kick in the butt to put my semaa down for thanks, Chi meegwetch for the reminder Tamara :)
Hey hey, Just checking in to see when your next show in T.O. is â€¦ hope all is well with you. Jeremy
Excellent, love it!
Hey Tamara, After picking up your cd at the Glandstone I played it almost non-stop (my 6year old grandson wants me to put "ignore" on repeat,you can hear him singing along in the back of the car!) I went away for 12 days to the Maritimes where I had no access to music and was dealing with hard family issues. Your songs sustained me. Your tunes and lyrics would bubble up inside me constantly and helped carry me through especially when needed most. Thanks for putting to music the things we all live. Deb G.
There are no proper adjectives to describe your music Tamara. "Beautiful" and the uncountable refractions of it's many ideals fall shy. I am speechless, deeply touched and impressed by your fearless talent.
Destined for greatness! Sure would be glad to see one of your shows...any plans on hitting Saskatchewan? Peace...keep it up.
Hey Tamara, I was your "back-up dancer" (ha, ha, ha...)at the Gladstone the other night. I'm soooo enjoying your cd. If there's anything I can do to help promote it let me know. It's been my intention to email song requests to local Toronto radio stations asking for "Ignore". ( I could justifiably ask for any of them but we'll start with that.) Best of luck, let me know what else I might do to help promote. Deb G.
It's Lisa from the Four Sheets office :-) I listened to some of the clips of your songs (finally got some time off now that filming's over!) The songs are just beautiful! I'm glad you spent the day at the office with us and I got to know you a little--wish I had been able to spend a little more time getting to know you. You seem so sweet and very interesting, too. I can't wait to hear the rest of the podcast interview! Best wishes for your future! --Lisa
You have a Very beautiful voice and it's so nice to hear your music. I also love to write music and sing. Thank you, Star
See you on the 20th

Hey Tamara, Great site! It's elegant just like you. I just wanted to say that I was doing some movement work breathing through my root and thought of you.

Hey there Tamara! It's so good to see how great you've been doing. I guess it's no surprise that you're keeping yourself this busy! Still have your Spirit Nation CD that I got from you at Kahnawake, my daughter loves listening to it while we're on the road. She's only 2 1/2 years and you can already see she's going to be quite the entertainer! LOL Hopefully she walks in the same positive footsteps you've walked in to get yourself where you are. It's been awhile since we've run into each other these days. But if I'm ever in the T.O. area, I'll have to give you a holla if I can get a hold of your busy self! But for now, much love and peace to you and wherever your path leads you in the future!
Tamara,your music is divine and makes me see the beauty that surrounds us! thank you for showing your gift to the world! Mihai
I enjoyed your music.. you have a really unique talent ... Cheers
Your music has been an inspiration for me to make great changes in my life. That was three months ago and I cannot thank you enough for making such beautiful music and lyrics that can move people to be able to reach for the higher things in life. I enjoyed your performance and look forward to seeing you perform live in the future. Keep on inspiring!
Hey Girl! Love your site as usual;)Thank you for the wonderful shawl donations:)Just finished reading your guestbook you sure have a great support system,which is no surprise. I revamped my site and will be opening an office soon you'll have to come visit when you have a moment...I'll let you know when;) www.cree8ivedesigns.com Take care!
Hi Tamara, I really enjoyed the show on Sunday, in particular, the beautiful finale, "All My Relations". I used to view myself as Anishnabe, yet without any representation. Your inspirational good words made me realize that we are all representatives - as are all Anishnabe - for the collective reason that we are connected to the ancestors. Each day begins with more responsibility; that is to say, we are given the weighty task to remember, give thanks, and to show our thanks by preserving the ancestral teachings. We breathe in the ancestors to begin a new day, to show us the way back, so that we can go forward. Gchi-miigwetch! P.S. I love the Spirit Nation cd! David (kokoko)
Hey Tamara...just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful evening of songs and music. You are truly a gifted singer and performer as well as a beautiful spirit. You had us dancing in our seats, laughing and singing along with you. As you taught us...Meegwetch.
Hey Tamara, Your video Meegwetch is really great and the song is beautiful. I can't wait to hear more. I hope to come out and see you soon! Danielle
i go to philomene chartrand school in camperville and i am doing a biography on you there are alot of neat things about you. it will be nice for you to come here id camperville mb in our school :)
Hey Tamara, I live In Calgary and I was hoping maybe your coming out this way sometime to perform? I see a lot of your venues are in Eastern Canada, I understand that's where your homebase is but I think it would be awesome if you came out this way......your music is phenomenal and truly touches the soul. You have an amazing voice, keep up the awesome work!!!!!!
Hello I was able to go to the fashion show with Turtle Concepts and saw you preform at the show. Dave Jones always plays your CD and I just love it!!! I would love to get a copy.... Lo.Lo
Hello I don`t know if you remember who I am but maybe you remember Nicole Obadia she was a friend of your sister`s, Jennifer. I think we met once at Camp Shomria, anyways I just wanted to say hi and your music is really nice. I noticed some Hebrew as well. I currently live in Israel now, can I buy your cd here in Israel? Take care Natalie
Your concert on Friday was simply magical. Your lyrics are inspirational and your voice is so very lovely. Thank you Tamara....you are a gift.
What can one say about your awesome talent that hasn't been said? I came across "Spirit Voices" one day, and I continue to listen to it. (Although I don't understand the language.) After a stressful day, this CD relaxes me. Thanks for sharing such an awesome voice.
What a crazy world! I was walking home from a crazy day of assignments due, mid-term prep, and general school frenzy. Kinda' feeling low as I had just handed in an assignment I know I could have done better on with more time. I was feeling woefully inadequate. I was forgetting about how great life is. In a daze from a long day, up at 4:am, I wasn't watching where I going and almost got squished by a passing vehicle. The following vehicle stopped and let another wise ass, jay walking student cross the road. They had their window down (crazy on this freezing January day!). I nodded thanks and slowly edged my way across the road. WHAT'S THIS? I hear my beautiful girl singing " She jumps in head first, no matter what people say.. she likes to learn..she likes to learn...the hard way." Ain't it grand! Life is beautiful again. (They must have a new CD from your Ottawa performance, or AFN party)Remember, there is no coincidence in life. Thank you my girl. I love you.I love Life! Mummy
Aanii Tamara! I saw you a while back on the Aboriginal Achievement Awards; I must say, you put on a spectacular performance. I see you have been quite busy as of late: kudos and I will definitely make it out to one of your T.O. shows. P.S. I really like your site, especially the inspirational quote. Keep up the good work! In Struggle, In Solidarity, In the Spirit of Community, David
Tamara - you rock !!! wishing you all the best. the unofficial fans site in Israel... :)

Hi Tamara, great site...great sounds. congratulations on another job well-done.
I enjoyed meeting Tamara at the San Francisco Film Festival in November 2005. I bought her CD - the one with both English and her Native language. I enjoy listening to her words and great voice. A Truly Gifted Artist. I am sure the new album will be very successful. Donna Begay, Tribal Chairwoman Tubatulabals of Kern Valley, California www.navatech.org
I love Spirit Voices and, as a musician and vocalist, am not surprised to see how famous and loved Tamara is. Her skills are obvious in her music and arrangements. I live in AL but was born and lived 40+ years in Massachusetts. I have no Indian blood (although my oldest daughter does) but have always had an Indian, not a white, heart.
Inspiring and beautful album... looking forward to you're future work.
The site looks great. I hope that all goes well with your new album. Keep in touch. Lance
I am enjoying your CD and I think a few tracks will make it onto my radio show here at Oneida Radio 89.5 FM just outside of London, ON. Maybe it could get as popular as NDN Kar or Pappy Johns Band.
Right on woman! Great new site and I love what I've heard of the new tunes. You're beautiful.
Tamara, Courageous emotional exposure on the new album "Tamara." Much Success and Happiness. Tara Tijer Lily Co
Magiya Lach Kol Hakavod v'Hamon Hatzlachah, I have to add a little Israeli representation to your site. Seriously I know you are always faithful to your ancestors on both sides of the sea and doing awesome new stuff so rock on and I'm looking forward to getting the new CD!
Aniin Tamara! I was with my family at the Native Centre for NYE and got to see ya perform.My 2 year old was sharing the floor with you though..LOL I think he is a future entertainer too!

Yisha Ko'ach (Yiddish for 'well done') on your new CD. I listened to some cuts and am amazed at your ability to produce so much, with such clarity and passion. Thanks for the inspiration. - Avrum
great site, lovely pics. Thank you, Miigwetch for including me in your mail list. Nice to see images of you in the creative process with a smile. Great look with the long curls. Personally, I am honoured to be a candidate for Native people in the next election with the First Peoples National Party. You are part of that as well through your music. Thanks for your inspiration.

Wonderful, can't wait for the release party so I can get a signed copy. Is the Bruce McDonald video coming out?
Congradulations! Way to go! Looking forward to hear it in the future! shirley
Can't wait to hear the new CD, Tamara. I love the other two and play them all the time. Your voice calms me right down after a long, frustrating day. Also, your site is beautiful. Keep that creativity coming!
Haven't heard the music, but will listen in time. Good luck with your music. Your passion will drive you to the clouds, and sometimes the clouds don't hold promises, but some clouds will carry your determination across the earth, and let it descend on others by raining and snowing, knowing that we need rain and snow. *********************************** www.wordsallowmotion.com looking for some comtempary Native Indie music to possibly add to my low-budget film. :)
Less Herbie Barnes photos please!! And Yay!!!! Excellent stuff. God love you and bless you through 2006. See you at your CD release if not before.
Just listened to some of the sound clips of your new CD, can't wait to buy it to hear the whole thing!!! It sounds fantastic! I loved you in spirit and have watched the DVD about 20 times now. Hope you come back to the Philadelphia area!

Tamara, Thank you for sharing your story and music at Sleeping Lady in Leavenworth, WA. Your music and spirit are beautiful. We look forward to seeing more great things from you in the future. - The Dickinsons
Just wanted to let you know that I have the CD "Spirit Voices" and I just love it. I do my best to sing along with all the songs but can't always get it. Is there any way to get the words to the songs so I can sing them too? I'm part Cherokee myself and have a good collection of Native music.
hey, I jus wanted to say ur new website is great! I like how u put alot more into it, and cant wait for the new CD, from the samples I can tell its gonna be great!
It was a pleasure meeting you and your sister Sarah Saturday night! I look forward to checking out this website. In fact, I can't wait! I must go now... ;)
congratulations on your new site!! you rock Tamara, at so many things. keep creating and performing, it's a gift to our world!
We met in SF in the reception area. I see you are coming to my part of the world, I didn't think that I impressed you that much. hahaha. I will have a gift for you when I see you in Leavenworth. Made the frame last week must have had some outside influence guiding me. Let me know what your schedule is. If you are flying into Seattle and driving over the mountains I can tell you if it is safe or you need to ride with me. I know the way. Left bread crumbs last time there. Hope to here from you soon. Roy

WOW! a whole new talent... great site. xo
What about that infectious sense of humour you have. Two of the funniest ethnic groups, Jewish and Native, through all the persecution and injustices, developed a wicked "laugh your ass off" sense of humour. You got it!
Good job, Tamara! You are beautiful inside and out! xoxoxxoxoxo
i love this site - you rock my sister, you truly do, you continue to amaze me every day!!!!!
looks so good, tpod, im so proud of you! keep singing sista :) xoxoxoxo
