Eagle & Hawk is a First Nations rock group, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The core of the band consists of lead guitarist Vince Fontaine, lead singer and guitarist Jay Bodner, bass guitarist Lawrence ‘Spatch’ Mulhall and drummer Marty Chapman. It was started primarily as an experimental writing project that would bring in Native American and Canadian Aboriginal elements with Indigenous lyrical themes into the music. They are most noted for winning the Juno Award for Best Music of Aboriginal Canada Recording in 2002 for their album On and On.
