Tsalagi Thankful
(Cherokee Song of Thanksgiving)

This is a traditional Cherokee song that we put to the Reggae Rhythm. It is a song of Thanksgiving, but it has nothing to do with the so-called Day of Giving Thanks that is celebrated in occupied territories of Turtle Island. Native People give thanks every day. With each breath, we express our gratitude.
