Personal Quote:

My nightmares are so bad, that I mostly reject it when my friends want to take me to a cinema to watch a horror movie. Then I say, "No, thank you. I will dream in a few hours." See more »


Tori has stated that two of her maternal great-great-grandparents were Cherokee Native American (though all of her maternal great-grandparents were listed as "White" on United States censuses). Tori often has Native American influences in her songs, esp. on the album "Scarlet's Walk", which includes the song "Wampum Prayer", a tribute to Native Americans. See more »
