Thread Name: 'Singing 'Shenandoah' for Brits
Subject: RE: 'Singing 'Shenandoah' for Brits
I learned this song in New York with 4 syllables and that's how I heard Americans sing it. But what would indigenous people say? Wikipedia says the indigenous name for Shenandoah was Senantona.and another source (John Walter Wayland, The German Element of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginiasays the native people of the area were the Senedos.
