Honoring the Past • Healing the Present • Celebrating the Future


LIVE FROM MINNEAPOLIS, SUNDAY, JUNE 28, 7 P.M. EST,

TALL PAUL, ANISHANAABE AND ONEIDA HIP-HOP ARTIST

Here is the link to the Zoom meeting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xkLsmf6AKw

Tall Paul is an Anishinaabe and Oneida Hip-Hop artist enrolled on the Leech Lake reservation in Minnesota. Born and raised in Minneapolis, where he still lives, Tall Paul’s music strongly reflects his inner-city upbringing. From personal expressions of self to thought provoking commentary on issues affecting Indigenous and diverse communities, his verses evoke a wide variety of substance and soul. He will weave together his story, music, and experiences during the recent weeks of racial unrest in his city. Q & A to follow. He will be at the 8th Annual Pocumtuck Homelands Festival in 2021.

THUS FAR WE ARE PLANNING TO HAVE ALL OF OUR RIVER STORIES 2020: RECOVERING INDIGENOUS VOICES OF THE CONNECTICUT RIVER VALLEY EVENTS STARTING ON JULY 11.

Dear Friends,

We have a wonderful and powerful collection to share with beautiful and thoughtful compositions that were submitted by friends to commemorate the 344th anniversary of the May 19, 1676 Great Falls Massacre. Here is a link to the compilation. Thanks so much for the thoughtful submissions. Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IAgVb26b26hCrLmkFg8jEpPTWEoBqSdL/view

We are so grateful to Lily-Rakia Chandler for sharing this song
“In honor of tens of thousands of years of gathering first nations at the Great Falls. This is what I remember beyond any tales of massacres. It’s a song of love for the waters and the spirit of the waters. We are still here”. It was recorded near Great Falls and captures the beauty of the spirit here.
The Water Water Song by Bear Fox sung in Kanienke:ha by Lily-Rakia by the Great Falls
