First-Nations Women School Matinee

First-Nations Women School Matinee
Friday, October 20, 2006 - 11:00am
Two renowned Native American female musicians join forces for a program of traditional and contemporary music. Sacramento-area resident Mary Youngblood (Aleut, Seminole) is believed to be the first woman to record professionally on the native flute—an instrument traditionally played by men. In 2002, she won a Grammy Award for “Best Native American Music Album.” Composer and musician Joanne Shenandoah (Iroquois) has been called “the most critically acclaimed Native American singer of her time” (Associated Press).

Recommended for grades 5-12.
