Indigenous Perspectives show that Everything is Connected, and Related. When we protect the water, we are protecting the land. When we protect the land, we are protecting the plants and animals : Our Relatives to be Respected under Natural Law.
When we stand up for Indigenous Rights (Human Rights), We are giving platform to these very teachings.
Dear Grandmother Buffy Sainte Marie
In 2018- This song PoPed into my music feed – And changed my life. I felt it was written for me, about me- Of course you know that’s the Magic of song- It has a way of moving many people- and tuning us in.Listen- While you read.“You Got To Run (Spirit Of The Wind)” was written by Sainte-Marie and inspired by champion dogsled racer George Atila, who competed in the first-ever Iditarod dog sled race in 1973 and was the subject of the 1979 film, Spirit Of The Wind. Tanya Tagaq’s Throat singing floats us away to those places where the wind carries, where the people of the land have ancestral connection to Dogs.This song helped me find strength and courage and stay persistent in my Efforts to expose the Canadian Sled Dog Industry – ( read the 10 part series )
