“‘Winona LaDuke’ is, obviously, an homage to the amazing mother, writer, & activist Winona LaDuke. More broadly, however, it is an evolutionary tale of the cathartic power of female energy & strong women generally. It is a quick illustration of how the power of the right woman can evolve a man from searching for simple pleasure to wanting to learn the classics & seek deeper existential meaning.” –Gyasi Ross
“Winona LaDuke” can be heard on ‘Isskootsik (Before Here Was Here)‘, the debut album from author, activist, attorney, & Native American spoken-word artist Gyasi Ross.
‘Isskootsik‘ is available now on iTunes via Cabin Games Records. The release is driven by powerful original music under the guidance of Cabin Games producer Kjell Nelson, featuring Slug (of Atmosphere), Aboidun Oyewole (of The Last Poets), & Northwest Independent music legend Steve Fisk, as well as traditional Native American performances from Nakoa HeavyRunner & Sacred Water.
