ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not Forgotten

Eskanye: Iroquois Women’s Songs Dedicated to: Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women

This album is a collection of original Eskanye: Iroqois Women’s Songs that I have written over the years. We wanted to gather them and offer a collection to honour and bring awareness to Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls. All profits will be distributed to groups working to put an end to this ongoing tragedy. Sheldon Sundown & Tribal Spirit Music

"At a very young age I was already attending funerals of the missing and murdered. I realized as I got older that because of what I saw growing up led me to believe that that was my future too. I walked in my path thinking I wasn't going to make it to my thirties. So I walked in a very negative way and had zero goals that I fulfilled.

By 14 I was a run away and placed into a group home. At 16 I was on drugs on the streets of St Catharines. Ive had my experience with sex trafficking and learned to live in a survival mode for most of my life.

I remember being in a vehicle with two men and I had a knife pulled on me. That was the first time I ever feared for my life. Thankfully I made it out alive. And I just remember running for my life as fast and hard as I could.

When I felt that I had no where to turn to I had my culture. I attended socials after socials. I danced my heart out and it gave me so much joy and sense of belonging. To dance women's dance with your people and have that feeling of unity is like no other feeling I have ever experienced. Our social songs really had a huge part in my healing journey.

Today I have learned to love. And first and foremost to love myself and who I am and where I come from. I see myself as someone that made it out. I see myself as someone that made it out to be a voice for my people. And what I mean by that is I'm still here. Ima still hers to share with other women that are walking a similar path like I once did. I believe we can make a difference with connecting with eachother and embracing each other's stories. I also believe that connecting with our songs is a form of healing. I know because it was for me.

So my message to all our women is to love who you are and believe in yourself. We are such beautiful people and we deserve to live long prosperous lives."

Yaw^ko Lela George.
