For a full week (March 2-6), Natives from across the state gathered together to praise the Lord each night. Groups and individuals performed; often they came without accompanists, and the resident accompanists joined in as they figured out what song was being sung (which made for some interesting modulations as each adjusted)! Bluegrass/gospel is the default style.
Enjoy a sampling of songs in both English and Native languages in our Vimeo album: https://vimeo.com/album/3314348. To see a video of a Native-written Seminole hymn, to go facebook.com/alaskafj and scroll down to the March 4 posting of Huron Claus – beautiful!
The picture spacing below is awful, and I cannot get the blog site to cooperate. Patiently page down (the pics do keep coming!) or check out the album on Facebook (you do not need to have a fb account to see them).
