Hello all visiters to my site here on cd baby and welcome

I was born in Northern Alberta and part of Treaty 6 and from the Plains Cree People of the Lake Land Region. I was raised with the old team horse era where everybody relied on the horse for mobility and enjoyed the country life. The traditions of the Cree People offered me a world of knowledge that allowed me to view our world within an Aborigional Perspective. I present my songs often using this world view and often elements of our traditional song styles and I incorperate new ideas within a globel contemperary song formate. I grew to love both the traditional and contemperary song forms that like many who went before me recorded contemperary mixes for our enjoyment and lasting memories. I'm currently promoting this compilation album here in Toronto and soon release our second Album. I believe in the currage of our people when faced with advercity and all those people who befieve in a greaty good for all mankind and this was the spirit that went into this Album. Ahh Hooow Hi Hi Melvin John
