The “We Are One – Mitakuye Oyasin” project features over 200 children singing in Lakota and English to an American folksong and a composition by Lakota singer/songwriter, Sequoia Crosswhite. It's unique in that each child was recorded individually and then edited to create a virtual choir.
Dawn Marie Edwards of the Orlando Chamber Soloists spoke with the Black Hills Pioneer about the song.
“There are four verses for the children to sing. They represent the four colors and the four directions,” Edwards said. “Verse three is the more challenging with the most Lakota to sing.”
Take a listen below and see if you think these kids did a good job!
