Fawn Wood was born in Cree Round Dance season on an icy October evening. Through her father, Earl Wood of Saddle Lake, Alberta, she inherited the Round Dance and Pow-Wow singing traditions of his Plains Cree forefathers. Through her mother Cindy Jim-Wood, she inherited the traditions and Salish chants of the Whonnock and Stlatlimx peoples. Since then, Fawn’s distinct style reflects the confluence of her parents’ tribal lineages.
