Nahko Bear Takes Singing From Your Core To A Whole New Level

“Bringin the power to the people your reflection of us
Some of your people can’t hear it
The cries of the earth, some of your people can’t feel it
The way that it hurts, and it hurts.”

~Great Spirit by Nahko Bear & the Medicine People

Powerful, Impactful, Deep: these are the words that describe the sound that emanates from Nahko Bear & the Medicine People. Their music is medicine for your soul, a prescription that reaches in and transforms you from the inside out. Nahko’s song Great Spirit is a powerful cry from the heart begging us to look deeper at who we are and what we are doing on this planet. Why are we not treating the land like it’s sacred? Will we wake up and be happy with our actions? Yet, also a reminder to pray more, to ask Great Spirit for help so we don’t get carried away and disconnected. Listen to Great Spirit below, share your thoughts, and then head over to Facebook to learn more about Nahko and the Medicine People & learn more about this incredible band.

Great spirit, I have had it
Bring me back to the nomadic
Way of weaving through damage
Mindful stay mindful

Great spirit for my sisters
Let me be a flowing river
Flood the banks the rocks that bind her
Carry Ill carry

Great, great spirit.. Oh oh oh oh
Great, great spirit

Great spirit for my brother
Let me be a mountain under
Which he climbs to discover
His process now that’s progress

Great spirit all that hinders
Tie reminders to my fingers
I must speak with you more
often Mmmm

Great, great spirit…Oh oh oh oh
Great, great spirit

Great spirit for my relations
Give them strength to face racism
In every single situation
Easy now go on speak loud

Great spirit take me instead
Guide me down the road of red
Tunkashila, I am
Saying, praying

Great, great spirit
Tun-kash-a-la 4x

Great spirit the stone collapse
Nothing but the earth will last
And i’ll be singing sweetly to the
Darkness Now hark this

Great spirit on my tongue
Be still, be still, the time will come
When everyone will sing, all life is
Sacred, While i’m waiting

Great spirit my fist is up
Bringing the power to the people, your reflection of us
Some of your people cant hear it, The cries of the earth
Some of your people can’t feel it, The way that it hurts

And it hurts great spirit
And it moves great spirit
Interconnected in the wreckage of a
Paradigm on its way out, way out…

Speaking of spiritual lyrical testimony
The spirit that did resist, Weaving around false prophecies
Spirit directed and selective, With the message I bring
While the ship slowly sinks, Ive been directed to sing

I’m like a wrecking ball, Breaking down the walls of the past
A minimalist living on bliss,With the last of my cash
You’re gonna be justified, With how you treated the land
You’re gonna be by my side
When I stand and demand

A change
Tunkashila 4x

Great, great spirit 3x
Tunkashila
Great, great spirit
Tunkashila
