“Standing Rock” and “Directions” videos

My cousins Nick and Ron Knight released their song “Standing Rock” recently, edited by Greg Knight.


The following video is related to Indigenous People’s Day this year. I had heard Nahko sing “Directions” on several occasions in the past. This version he sings with Hawane:

For the West
For the North
For the East
For the South

Grandfather, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now
Grandmother, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now

For the West (hmm)
For the North (hmm)
For the East (hmm)
For the South (hmm)

Grandfather, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now
Grandmother, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now

For the West (hmm)
For the North (hmm)
For the East (hmm)
For the South (hmm)

Grandfather, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now
Grandmother, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now

HOKA!

For the West (ooo)
For the North (ooo)
For the East (ooo)
For the South (ooo)

Grandfather, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now
Grandmother, I’m calling on you
Need your guidance now
