Bringing it home to Alaska. 

Portugal. The Man wins a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance for "Feel it Still".  Originally from Wasilla, Alaska, the band's original members started playing music while they were in Wasilla High School and later relocated to Portland. Taken from the band's acceptance speech, " "We grew up in a small town in Alaska. This is crazy for us. Our heroes are dog mushers and stuff like that," he said. "We'd like to rep this for all the kids in the villages — Shishmaref, Barrow, Bethel. All the indigenous people in Alaska and around the world. You're beautiful and your culture's beautiful. Thank you for inspiring us. Hey man, rep where you're from. Be proud of who you are and where you're from."
