Detailed Information

Born into the respected multi-generational traditional singing Wood family, Fawn Wood’s singing reflects her Cree and Salish tribal lineage. At an early age Fawn would sing her heart out at pow-wows alongside her mother and father. In 2006 Fawn was the first female to win the Hand Drum contest at the Gathering of Nation’s Pow-Wow. In 2009 she opened the show at the 11th Annual Native American Music Awards (NAMMYS). In 2010 she also sang with her partner, Dallas Waskahat for the opening of the Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards in Winnepeg, Manitoba.
