Juno Awards shine spotlight on Aboriginal artists

This year's Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys, include more events aimed at promoting Aboriginal artists.

Aboriginal events took place all week. Wednesday was an Aboriginal music career day featuring workshops with music industry veterans. On Thursday, singers and dancers staged performances to welcome attendees of the Junos.

Tonight, an all-Aboriginal concert will be held featuring all five of the nominees for the Aboriginal Recording of the Year. On Sunday, more performances will take place at a teepee village at the awards site.

The show takes place Sunday.
