  Plains Cree/Salish singer Fawn Wood comes from the tradition of Round Dance and Hand Drum music. She was introduced to spiritual songs by her parents and grandparents, singing along with them at Pow-Wows from an early age. Through her music, she shares a deep passion for her community and speaks to the strength of Indigenous women. Fawn won the Hand Drum contest at the Gathering of Nation’s Pow-Wow in 2006, the first woman to do so. Before her work as a solo artist, she and her husband Dallas Waskahat released albums as a duo. The two of them performed at the 11th Annual NAMMY awards and 2010 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards. Fawn’s latest album is entitled Kikāwiynaw, Plains Cree for “our mother”.
