Some songs have been gifted to her through dreams while others are inspired by the stories she tells and her life experiences. Her audiences include schools, churches, corporations, museums, theaters, music festivals and universities throughout the United States, and Europe. Red Feather Woman has performed for thousands and has been labeled Master Storyteller. She gives hope for our planet and for future generations.
Rose continues her to make her mark in the industry as a unique blend of the old with the new, as she weaves the oral tradition of Native American stories and the new sound of today’s music. She has shared the stage with the best in the business. Her most important duty is to her culture and with her art form, set the tone for preservation of an ancient culture that continues to struggle to survive today. She entertains as well as teaches all audiences, the importance of our Mother Earth, and to reflect on each individual’s culture. A Truly gifted storyteller, she will leave you spell bound.
