Spirit Wind Aboriginal Hand Drum and Singing

Spirit Wind Women’s Hand Drum Group
The name Spirit Wind represents the importance of giving thanks for our breath. Multi-talented artists, singers, song-writers and dancers Nancy Johnson, Michele Perpaul, Tania Cordoba, Rochelle Allan,Amy Desjarlais and Dawnis Kennedy come together to share Native traditional and social hand-drum songs through stories, drum, voice and shakers.

This style of singing brings women from all over Turtle Island together and offers them an opportunity to practice and live Native spirituality in traditional as well as non-traditional settings. Women’s hand drum social singing is a relatively new tradition, however the drum itself has been acknowledged as the heartbeat of Mother Earth since time immemorial. The drumbeat reminds of our relationship and connection to Creation.
