July – 2016

Sekon, Greetings and Peace,

Last summer I found my immune system was severely compromised. I had been exposed to deadly bacteria called CDIFF, which spread throughout my abdomen and affected my entire renal system, which damaged my liver and caused near blindness. I was on life support for 10 days in NY and since February 2016 I have been cared for by the Mayo Clinic in Florida and relatives and loved ones as their schedule would allow. I have battled this condition and endured physical demands I could never have imagined! I have survived because of your prayers and support.

This illness has also taken a great toll on my financial situation in every way. With extensive expenses, travel, food, lodging, car rental, over the counter medications and such has necessitated a serious appeal for financial support. Kindly consider sharing this message to those of you who may know or someone who may be able to help. Every contribution is TAX DEDUCTIBLE. Checks or money orders can be mailed to: Joanne Shenandoah, Box 450, Oneida, NY 13421, or Americu Credit Union, 280 Genesee Street, Oneida, NY 13421.

I could not be where I am now without your individual kindness and generosity. I am asking for you to share far and wide because additional support is needed as we approach the actual transplant. I have every intention of carrying on with my music once I am healed, and in fact have already begun some projects both book form and music as well.

Blessings to you all as we continue on our mission to heal our lovely planet by initiating environmental, spiritual, and physical changes for ourselves while securing happiness and peace for those yet unborn.

As we journey through life we are met with many challenges. Know that my love and joy continues to spread across the planet and I am eternally grateful for the blessings of this life and the wonders which lay beyond. Looking forward to sharing some new songs of hope for you soon.

My plan is to put together a Skype course for those who are interested in learning more about the music profession. An announcement will be made on my website soon. http://www.joanneshenandoah.com

To all of you I extend my appreciation and love. I carry your hopes and prayers in my heart and soul.

In respect to all living beings,

Joanne Shenandoah

Cody Blackbird on “Make No Bones About It.” Jan 17th, 2016 at 4pm

“Not only is Cody Blackbird an incredible Native Flute player, but I love how he blends the Native sound with blues and classic rock. He and his band definitely know how to bring the heart and soul.” Bibi McGill, Musical Director/Lead Guitarist for Beyonce

“Cody’s music, which he terms “AlterNative Fusion,” sits in a class by itself in the music world” Buffalo ArtVoice

Cody Blackbird has been widely recognized as one of the worlds top Native American musicians touring today. Blending the old with the new, Cody merges the Native American flute with powerful vocals into contemporary blues rock sounds with The Cody Blackbird Band. The band has been compared to a hybrid Native version of the famous Blues rock band “Blues Traveler”
Featured on NBC, PBS, WGN, MSNBC, CNN and The NY Times Cody has performed over 1500 shows both nationally and internationally and with the band they plan on taking it to the next level. The Cody Blackbird Band has shared the bill with such artists as Arlo Guthrie, Lynyrd Skinard’s Rickey Medlocke, Peter, Paul and Mary’s Peter Yarrow, Nahko Bear, Xavier Rudd, and Reggae legends “Big Mountain”

Most recently Cody returned from a 7 day solo Japan Tour, playing Yamaha Corporate Headquarters “Yamaha Ginza” as well as Nagoya Yamaha and KIWA Hall in Tokyo in celebration of High Spirits Flutes 25th anniversary

Indigenous Peoples Day 2015

Indigenous Peoples Day

Why is that so important? … It means that we have made a very large part of the world recognize who we are and even to stand with us in solidarity in our long fight. From now on, children all over the world will learn the true story of American Indians on Columbus Day instead of a pack of lies about three European ships.”

– Jimmie Durham, 1977

Since the invasion of Turtle Island our Indigenous Peoples have been under attack. Columbus represents genocide, raping, boarding schools and the displacement of our Indigenous Peoples. For my family and me, we are working toward social justice and human rights for all Indigenous Peoples. We promote, highlight and recognize the necessity of Indigenous wisdom for humanity survival.

“Indigenous Peoples Day” reimagines Columbus Day and transforms a celebration of a known murder of our Indigenous Peoples into an opportunity to expose historical truths about the genocide and oppression of indigenous peoples in the Americas. It is time for us to recognize and celebrate indigenous resistance. It is time we stop the genocidal attack of Mama Earth and the Original Peoples of this world if we are going to survive. It is time for us all to start the healing. “This is in the spirit of Billy Frank, Jr.”

October 12th, this year in Olympia will be an evening of sharing words from our Tribal Nations and City Officials. We will be starting with our local Indigenous Peoples: Lummi, Nisqually, Puyallup, Squaxin, Quileute, and beyond. We will be starting the evening with a welcome from representatives from Nisqually and Squaxin followed with songs from Squaxin Island Drum Group. Throughout the evening we will be hearing from Native voices: Nancy Shippentower, Puyallup Nation, John McCoy, Tulalip Nation, DouGlas Skarhoniatai, Mohawk, and Swil Kanim, Lummi Nation. We will also be hearing from Stephen Buxbaum, Mayor of Olympia and Nathaniel Jones Mayor Pro- tem. Before the evening is over we will finish with an open mic for the remainder of time.

Goodthinking 4 All Our Relations is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organized in July 2009, to address and meet the needs of the seemingly forgotten and overlooked children and Elders in “Indian Country.” Goodthinking 4 All Our Relations operates under the jurisdiction of a covenant with Creation. Through the Traditional Ceremonies, Teachings, and Guidance of our Elders, we understand it is time to make a difference. In order to systemically address issues of suicide, substance abuse, health disparities, and domestic violence, we must first address basic physiological needs for water, food, and safety. When people are fighting merely to survive there is not time for them to think of ways in which to thrive.
