A proper honor, for one of the most accomplished Native Americans. From the Wolf Clan of the Oneida Nation. Joanne's husband, Doug George-Kanentiio lets it be known:
Joanne Tekaliwahkwah Shenandoah has been selected for the Native American (American Indian) Hall of Fame.
She will be formally inducted this coming November at a gala event in Oklahoma City. She joins our great friends Vine Deloria and Wilma Mankiller along with Tecumseh, Osceola and Hiawatha.
It is a wonderful honour for a woman I had the amazing fortune to be married to for over 30 years.
And yes, charismatic as she was in public she was loving, kind, generous and beautiful each day
Wow this is great news. She is a really inspiring First Nations woman for sure. Makes me proud. Much respect from Victoria, BC.
