A collection of all new, original and truly inspired compositions by highly acclaimed singer/songwriter Joanne Shenandoah. All sung in her native Iroquois language, these songs tell the story of the Peacemaker who helped bring peace to all the Iroquois Nations. "One of the most beautiful voices recording today" (NAPRA Review) is accompanied by violin, viola, cello, guitar, bass, and a lush array of other instruments to bestow a profoundly moving message of peace.
The world in which we live has caused us all to think of our children and of those yet unborn. In light of all the violence, war, and pressure placed on the children of the 20th century, I was compelled to compose songs which tell the story of our beloved Peacemaker who helped bring peace to the Haudenosaunee, the People of the Longhouse, known also as the Iroquois. The prophecy of the Haudenosaunee says that one day everyone will hear about this great message of peace.
