Joanne Shenandoah is a member of the Wolf Clan of the Oneida Nation, Iroquois Confederacy. Her parents, Maisie Shenandoah, a Clan mother, and the late Clifford Shenandoah, an Onondaga chief and jazz guitarist, loved music and named her Tekaliwakhwa, “she sings” in the Oneida language. As a child, Joanne learned the tribal songs and studied voice, flute, piano, clarinet, guitar and cello. She draws upon her rich heritage, yet brings her songs into a contemporary setting.
Shenandoah has appeared on and created sound tracks for numerous television shows, most notably Northern Exposure and How the West Was Lost. She has performed and recorded with many accomplished musicians in Europe and America, including pianist/composer Peter Kater, Neil Young, Rita Coolidge, Kris Kristofferson, Jackson Browne and Willie Nelson.
