QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “Aho Mitakuye Oyasin”^ we really are the same. Lest you be forgotten, I will call your name - Tahlequah”.
(^from the Lakota language, it reflects the world view of interconnectedness).
An ode to the orca whale who became the subject of blatant media obsession after losing her child, and a reminder that all of life is interdependent. Instrumentally, the track highlights Ken’s finger style acoustic guitar.
