Shanewis [ The Robin Woman: Shanewis ]
- Thomas Warburton
Opera in one act by Charles Wakefield Cadman to a libretto by Nelle Richmond Eberhart; New York, Metropolitan Opera, 23 March 1918.
The plot is partly based on the life of the Creek Indian Tsianina Redfeather, Shanewis being a phonetic approximation of her name. She herself assisted Cadman in the lectures he gave on Indian music throughout the USA....
