Dawn has blessed us with a new song and video for her single “Jealousy.”
The video is a Monty Mash-directed project that features Chief Montana of the Washitaw Nation, a group of Black Indians who claim to be a sovereign Native American nation in the United States. Along with returning to music after a two-year break, Dawn became the first woman to get permission from a chief to wear a headdress.
DAWN gives an illuminating performance in this rustic video, while simultaneously showing off the beauty that lies within her hometown of New Orleans.
“The visual explains my roots in the Washitaw Nation Tribe,” DAWN said. “I wanted to show New Orleans in a light most have never seen or are aware of. The Black Indian and Power of our traditional garb are shown in the visual. Chief Montana created my hand sewn headpiece representing the power of being both King and Queen. Our tribes spend all year beading these costumes to then dance and show off their work among other tribes.”
