Grammy Nominee Shenandoah to Appear at Cayuga Community College

DATE: 11-05-2004

Grammy Award nominee Joanne Shenandoah will join Syracuse University broadcasting professor Tula Goenka to present the film Dancing on Mother Earth in November at Cayuga Community College's Auburn and Fulton locations.

The documentary film explores Shenandoah's life as a Native American singer, songwriter, and cultural ambassador. A Wolf Clan member of the Oneida Nation of Central New York, she has recorded 13 albums and performed at the White House, Kennedy Center, and three Presidential inaugurations. The one-hour film, produced by Goenka, weaves tour footage, interviews, and family scenes into an intimate view of Shenandoah's battle for traditional Oneida government and tribal land.

he free public programs will be held on Wednesday, November 10, at Cayuga's Auburn campus and Wednesday, November 17, at the college's Fulton Center. Both screenings are set for 6:30 p.m. in the student lounges, and with discussion periods afterwards.
