ABOUT FAWN WOOD:
Fawn Wood was born in the rhythm of Round Dance season on an icy October evening. That evening resonated with the spirit of the Round Dance from her Cree ancestors through her father Earl Wood of Saddle Lake, Alberta. That same evening also echoed with the Salish chants and hums of the Whonnock and Stlatlimx peoples, the tribal heritage of her mother Cindy Jim-Wood. Since then, Fawn’s distinct style reflects the confluence of her parents’ tribal lineages.
