We hope you will join us in the First Congo Sanctuary on Sunday, November 21 at 4:00 PM for special music from Wade Fernandez!
Soaring around the world with Menominee Indian Reservation roots, Wade Fernandez (Walks With The Black Wolf) is a deeply authentic multi-award winning international touring artist from the Menominee Nation.
Winning numerous awards in many genres, Fernandez’s musical style knows no bounds. Beginning his solo career joining Jackson Browne & the Indigo Girls onstage has led to a long career with over 60 international tours.
Both his music and his message are firmly grounded in his Menominee Reservation roots and love for the land, animals, and people. His passion to educate, share music, culture and honor Grandmother Earth is reflected in his international presentations and work in schools (k-college), workshops, with the elderly, the mentally disabled, elders, youth and concerts both rocking and soothing stages from Woodstock 94 to Honor the Earth.
During the COVID-19 epidemic Wade became a team leader/community health worker for Creative Health Collective servicing the needs of the Native American community on the ground, through film, and livestreaming.
At the concert, a free-will offering will be received to benefit the Waking Women Healing Institute – a place of learning and healing that works to address and prevent MMIW (Missing Murdered Indigenous Women) and acts of sexual violence against Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirits.
