Music of Native North America in honor of Native American Heritage Month. Featuring several tracks from the upcoming release by Light in the Attic Records in Seattle: Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966–1985.

From their website:

Available: November 25, 2014

Largely unheard, criminally undocumented, but at their core, utterly revolutionary, the recordings of the diverse North American Aboriginal community will finally take their rightful place in our collective history in the form of Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966–1985. An anthology of music that was once near-extinct and off-the-grid is now available for all to hear, in what is, without a doubt, Light In The Attic’s most ambitious and historically significant project in the label’s 12-year journey.

Native North America (Vol. 1) features music from the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the northern United States, recorded in the turbulent decades between 1966 to 1985. It represents the fusion of shifting global popular culture and a reawakening of Aboriginal spirituality and expression. The majority of this material has been widely unavailable for decades, hindered by lack of distribution or industry support and by limited mass media coverage, until now. You’ll hear Arctic garage rock from the Nunavik region of northern Quebec, melancholy Yup’ik folk from Alaska, and hushed country blues from the Wagmatcook First Nation reserve in Nova Scotia. You’ll hear echoes of Neil Young, Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, and more among the songs, but injected with Native consciousness, storytelling, poetry, history, and ceremony.

The stories behind the music presented on Native North America (Vol. 1) range from standard rock-and-roll dreams to transcendental epiphanies. They have been collected with love and respect by Vancouver-based record archaeologist and curator Kevin “Sipreano” Howes in a 15-year quest to unearth the history that falls between the notes of this unique music. Tirelessly, Howes scoured obscure, remote areas for the original vinyl recordings and the artists who made them, going so far as to send messages in Inuktitut over community radio airwaves in hopes that these lost cultural heroes would resurface.

With cooperation and guidance from the artists, producers, family members, and behind the scenes players, Native North America (Vol. 1) sheds real light on the painful struggles and deep traditions of the greater Indigenous community and the significance of its music. The songs speak of joy and spirituality, but also tell of real tragedy and strife, like that of Algonquin/Mohawk artist Willy Mitchell, whose music career was sparked by a bullet to the head from the gun of a trigger-happy police officer, or those of Inuk singer-songwriter Willie Thrasher, who was robbed of his family and traditional Inuit culture by the residential school system.

Considering the financially motivated destruction of our environment, the conservative political landscape, and corporate bottom-line dominance, it’s bittersweet to report that the revolutionary songs featured on Native North America hold as much meaning today as when they were originally recorded. Dedicated to legendary Métis singer-songwriter and poet Willie Dunn, featured on the anthology but who sadly passed away during its making, Native North America (Vol. 1) is only the beginning. A companion set featuring a crucial selection of folk, rock, and country from the United States’ Lower 48 and Mexico is currently in production.

  • 34 tracks newly re-mastered
  • Deluxe 2xCD set features a hard-cover 120 page book with comprehensive liner notes, artist interviews, unseen archival photos, and lyrics (with translations)
  • Deluxe 3xLP set includes 60 page book with comprehensive liner notes, artist interviews, unseen archival photos, and lyrics (with translations), housed in a “Tip-On” slip case with three “Tip-On” jackets
  • Liner notes by Kevin “Sipreano” Howes

Rise When the Rooster Crows

Does Fred Leeson still host Rise When the Rooster Crows? from I. Orav


Please share the playlist for yesterday, the 15th! I was listening to a song on my way to work, at about 5:56 am, and it has been stuck in my head ever since...not sure who it was though. THANKS! :)

The guys you had on this

The guys you had on this morning were absolutely unbelievably HOT!!!!!  What is UP???The authenticity!  The talent!   The sheer historical knowledge.    

"The Americans"

Thank you SO MUCH    going to see em tonight AND tomorrow night in Portland at least!



Name of group/song

I've been looking for a playlist for the 10th of Sept. - I wanted to know the name of the group/song that you played at the very end of the program - the very last piece. I couldn't hear all of details - it sounded something like 'Wheels of the World'? Thanks!


song you played

Rise When the Rooster Crows: I love your program, and try to wake up early just to listen, then go back to sleep. Love it!!!

On 4/16/09 you played a song that sang something like:

"How will I rock the cradle when I'm gone?"

I don't know who sang it or what the title really was but it had the most beautiful fiddle playing throughout that thrilled my heart. I want to buy an album by this group but have no clue. I looked on your playlist but it doesn't include that date.

If you don't know off the top of your head just leave it. I just want you to know you play the best music on the radio and can't be found anywhere else. Music sings to the depth of our soul. Sometimes the music you pick is just so beautiful it makes me want to cry happy tears.
