In my role as managing editor at ARP Books, and as an aspiring ally of Indigenous peoples, I’m proud to have had a small part in helping make this truly wonderful book, The Winter We Danced—Voices From the Past, the Present, and the Idle No More Movement. Find it at your local independent bookstore. The Winnipeg launch is Thursday, May 22, at Neechi Commons.
Here’s another creaky 4-track demo from 2001—“Benediction,” with different lyrics at the end, which I sort of like better than the ones that ended up on Reconstruction Site. Can’t recall why I changed them.
