A Rap for the Idle No More Movement

Here's a rap in honour of the "Idle No More" movement and the hunger strike by Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence.

Treaty, treaty, what treaty?
Treaties you say?
No way, no way.

When, where, why?

Long ago signed in good faith,
So, then they're out of date?

Go and get us more pelts of Otter
Then we'll give you Fire Water.

Oh yeah, honouring Treaties?
No way, no way,
That'll be the day.       


First Day of New Year 2013

What do you think of new Western culture
Oh, that would be nice

What about its wisdom and compassion
Oh, their leaders have that on ice

No hope then for this New Year?

Oh yes, a few tribes in the Amazon
and us, are still here, except . . .

Maybe not the Polar Bear
