Irene Bedard, the Native actress from Anchorage, Alaska, who gave voice to Disney’s Pocahontas, performed at the 24th annual Kee-Boon-Mein-Kaa Pow Wow with the forest as a backdrop.
Bedard, 42, who stands 5-foot-2 1/2, was named one of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People for 1995. She was joined by her musician husband, Ohio native Deni Wilson, and their 6-year-old songwriting son, Quinn. Irene and Deni married in 1993. Quinn “likes the Clash and the Ramones so his songs rock,” Deni said.
The first grader “was born two days before our 10th wedding anniversary,” added Irene.
