Elexa Dawson exudes indigenous spirit, inspiring and edifying with original music and a "warm honey mixed with prairie dirt" voice.
A founding member of Kansas' folk homegrown favorite all-female band, Weda Skirts (formerly The Skirts), Elexa is a born entertainer and skilled songwriter. Two albums self-produced by The Skirts present a collection of songs that are influenced by her Potawatomi and Oklahoma heritage, nature, family, love and loss, all with a hopeful and heartfelt tone.
She, along with other concerned citizens, began Flint Hills Stewards, a community organization born out of necessity to resist wastewater injection by the oil and gas industry on the endangered tallgrass prairie.
Elexa performs solo and with Weda Skirts at private and public events, in churches, bars, and campfires.
