I find it heartbreaking that native land and ways of life continue to be violated in North America – especially at a time when native peoples' traditional understandings of the interconnectedness of all living things, of water as the source of life, and of non-violence as the way for resolving conflict could provide many of the very things I believe we need to heal as a nation. This song was born of my lament and reflection on such things, and as an ode to the river's beauty.
