OUR NAME -- SWEET WATER WOMEN
 
Our name perfectfly expresses who we are and what we are about.  We have come together to carry these songs from Spirit as messages of hope, and a means to connect with what is important in life in this time of turmoil and struggle.  Water is a very powerful force of nature, and it is carrying with it our messages of love, respect, gratitude and celebration. This force of nature is tempered with the sweetness and gentleness of our name.

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!
