Album title is inspired by a story shared by the Sicaugu Oyate people with my family which influenced these soundings.

This resides as an irrevocable truth despite what other messages we might get along the way; Inside us there is love, we are loved, we are full of wonder. *

With this consider how we may reorient our spirits and blood memory toward this truth, and justice. **

* from Reuben Quinn’s language teachings

** In response to Emily Johnson’s prompt ‘How can we orient our cells towards justice?’
