Qu'appelle Valley, Saskatchewan: Video-Lyrics by Buffy Sainte-Marie



"Qu'appelle Valley, Saskatchewan" (Buffy Sainte-Marie)From Album "Sweet America"

You can travel all alone
You can travel all alone
Or you can come along with me
Walk the old way
heyo ha heya

Wrap me in your blanket dance me around
Wrap me in your blanket dance me around
Take me back to where my heart belongs
Qu'Apelle Valley, ho Saskatchewan
Qu'Apelle Valley, ho Saskatchewan.

You can travel all alone
You can travel all alone
Or you can come along with me
Walk the old way
heyo ha heya.

I noticed at one point during "Buffy Sainte-Marie: A Multimedia Life," that there is footage of Buffy singing this song with an accompanying drum.
It lingers in my mind sometimes. This song is possibly one of the most beautiful songs written but it's place and meaning(s)/interpretations exist in another realm.
I wonder about the documentation of that event. I think of the documentation of Buffy during the 60's and 70's and I hope one day more of it is available and/or distributed. It's important. Growing up Native in Gallup, New Mexico, I wasn't fully aware of the positive role models in the Native community, but had I been aware of Buffy Sainte-Marie, well, I can only imagine what doors I would have taken a chance to open.
