In honor of Women’s History Month, Brett sits down and talks with one of the most celebrated women in the Native American music scene, Joanne Shenandoah.

Show Notes

Joannes a Grammy winner who’s recorded 24 albums that range in style from classical and spoken word, to country and beyond.

Being a matriarch in the Oneida Nations Wolf clan, Shenandoah offers unique insights into the traditions of the Haudensaunee (Iroquois) peoples which has since time immemorial held women in the highest regard. These traditional beliefs directly influenced the formation of the United States government and the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution.

In addition to songs from her latest album, Shenandoah Country, we’ll be listening to a selection from her Lifegivers album and a 1991 duet with the late, great Paul Ortega. Also, great tracks from Janel Munoa, Crystal Shawanda, a brand new single from Samantha Crain and so much more!
