Waterfall Healing Song for Stress Relief
I was in Niagara Falls recently, speaking at a conference. I did a ton of research to find out more about the original peoples of that land and it turns out that the first two indigenous nations to live there are now extinct. I was asked to do a Land Acknowledgement and Welcome Song to open the conference. A Land Acknowledgement is how to show respect for the indigenous peoples of that land, as well as the land itself.
The Adina, also known as the Hopewell, were the very first people there, many thousands of years ago and their descendants were known by many names, but the name they gave themselves was the Chonnonton, the deer herders. The French called them the Neutrals because they refused to participate in a war between the 2 peoples on either side of them and they also refused to allow any fighting in their territory.
On the way to Niagara Falls, originally known as Oniiagarah or Ongiiarah, my friends and I did 2 healing ceremonies for the Chonnonton, to acknowledge and heal their spirits and the land. It was powerful.
Once we got to Niagara Falls, timing shifted and we had an hour to go visit the Falls before I sang and spoke. This video is one of the healing songs I channelled there, for healing the water – within you and around you – and healing the Niagara Falls and Niagara River.
Enjoy the video!
