IN HER OWN WORDS...
If I had to describe my lyrics in three words it would be, "heartfelt, personal, and passionate." My songs are about love, loss, hope, and happiness, I believe these are feelings all human beings deal with. My songs are my connection to my inner self. All of the songs I wrote are about my own life and the two I co-wrote with my brother Isnala-Wica Belt are about his struggles. The song "Aaron's Song" my brother and I wrote together is for his best friend Aaron Lakota because we wanted to give him a gift for being such a important part of our family and to voice that we understand what he's going through.
I humbly give all my songs to humanity no matter what your race because we can all relate to the human condition... life. I always dreamed I would leave something behind to make my mark in history for my future decendants. My music is my gift to them. My children are my biggest supporters and the reason I recorded this album. I cherish my children, my extended family and my friends everyday. Pilamiya.
