  • Lyrically documents a day of Tlingit Indian ceremony held along the Chilkoot River, ancestral home of the Chilkoot Tlingit of Alaska. This unusual ceremony consists of time-honored prayers, songs and dances and is being held for the first time in decades in an attempt to bear witness against the mistreatment of the Tlingit's traditional lands and water.
