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
