A MESSAGE FROM SWEET WATER WOMEN
Sweet Water Women are all very proud and honoured to say
that we were all born on this beautiful part of Mother Earth that is Canada. We are four women who come from different
cultures and backgrounds, and have found ourselves drawn together on this Red Road through the power of the Drum.
Sweet Water Women's original songs come to us through meditation, dreams, vision, and
the place from whence inspiration comes -- the Creator. We describe our music as World Aboriginal, as it has been greatly
influenced by the North American Aboriginal culture, and encompasses sacred sounds you might hear in many tribal societies
around the globe. Our songs are sung from the heart as prayers of respect and gratitude, and carry with them a purpose
and a teaching to help others on their Earth Walk.
Sweet Water Women celebrate the connection and Oneness of all things, and through our
music are praying for all to come together in a good way to celebrate our similarities. We offer this music to All of
Creation for the healing of Mother Earth and all Her Children.
Sweet Water Women say Chii Miigwetch to the Creator and all those
people who have helped us along the way through their generosity, patience, understanding and teachings!! A special
thanks to the White Bear Singers, White Cedar Singers, N'Swakamok Native Friendship Centre, and Better Beginnings Better Futures
for opening their hearts, minds, and homes to provide a place for all people to come together to drum, sing, learn, and to
heal. Sweet Water Women also want to give a big thankyou to the Native Program of Laurentian University for their
ongoing support and generosity!
