“K'EINTAH NATSE JU Indigenous resilience is healing together. NATSE JU - HEALING, TO HEAL. We are healing together. This song is about the legacy of colonization and its impact on our (Indigenous) family relationships. Part of the impacts of residential school was the dismantling of the Indigenous family structure. This was intentional - if you take the children away from their families you deprive them of the love and cultural traditional values that growing up in a loving home gives to them. This song is about some of those relationships. Part of this was inspired by the tragic deaths of Colton Boushie and Tina Fontaine. Written for the project celebrating resilience of Indigenous northerners- Gho- Bah - first light of dawn.”
