Singer says impromptu song at Maskwacis papal apology being mistaken for ‘O Canada’

Si Pih Ko’s song is being shared and resonating with people worldwide, she said it is being mistaken for the wrong tune, Karen Bartko at Global News reports.

“It wasn’t O Canada. It’s our village in our language of the Four Winds,” Si Pih Ko said to Global News at the Lac Ste. Anne pilgrimage.

“‘You are hereby served the spoken law, we the daughters of the great spirit and our tribal sovereign members can not be forced into law or treaty that is now the great law. We have appointed chiefs on our territories, convern yourselves accordingly,’ and then I turned my back on him and said ‘hiy hiy’ and I shook it off.”
