Wind Eagle Netaenawemakanak Album Review

Posted By Darren Thompson September 20th, 2015 Last Updated on: September 20th, 2015

Singing loud and proud from the Menominee Nation in Northern Wisconsin, Wind Eagle presents their second album in “Netaenawemakanak”. Produced and distributed by the group's lead singer Shane Webster and its members in 2009, Netaenawemakanak is the group's second album and features a collection of songs in the Menominee language as well as straight (vocables) songs well known on the Powwow Trail.

Closely translating to “my relatives” in the Menominee language, Netaenawemakanak features the rich and vibrant Menominee people through its singers, their songs as well as their language. The Menominee Nation has a rich and proud singing tradition and Wind Eagle is a fine example representing not only the Menominee Nation, but Indian Country in the preservation of tradition and culture. The album features the talented song-making and vocals of many of the group's singers, who have sung for and with many on the Powwow Trail.



Produced and distributed by the group and its members, Netaenawemakanak is an excellent example of the creativity, dedication, and determination to standards that exists in Indian Country. With a quality recording that captures the energy of the drum, as both Wind Eagle's men and women are well heard throughout the album, Netaenawemakanak is an exceptional addition to the Powwow Trail.

Listen to their CD on Pow Wow Radio!
