Amazing, cinema-sonic music video moments chooses their top picks for 2014 music videos. They also list top artists on their site - check the other links. (Note: not all videos are appropriate for the classroom - preview before using.)

"Indigenous artists continued their takeover of popular culture in 2014. Here are the best Indigenous music videos of the year. First things first, if you missed our epic selections of the Best Indigenous Music of 2014, you should go read and listen to what we picked. And as though our top albums, EPs, singles and our Best of 2014 Remixtape weren't enough to satiate your hunger for Native artistry, we've also compiled our favourite Indigenous music videos of 2014. There were many amazing, cinema-sonic moments put on tape this year, but these were the videos that made the deepest, most engaging, and even funniest, impressions on us."
