Wayne Jackson: tipiskâw mêkwac (y-dialect, audio)

Wayne Jackson’s translation of Rod Stewart’s “Tonight’s the Night” is hot stuff! I’d say the same about Wayne, but everybody already knows! (Thanks, Wayne, for permission to share!)

Note that this is not a direct literal translation: rather, in the style of Winston Wuttunee and Dolores Sand, it’s a re-working that makes the idea, the melody and the Cree words all work well together.

And now I’m looking for more like this Youtube by searching W.T. Goodspirit. Fabulous stuff!
