Northern Cree: miyo-kîkisêpâyâw

Isn’t every day better with a little, just a little, Northern Cree?

Thanks to their FaceBook administrator for permission to share this video of a good morning song composed by Marvin “Mihkiso” Deschamps, that they describe as “something a little soft with a little bit of energy to get your day going in a positive way, with a little prayer within.” It’s a good reminder to be grateful for each day. Scroll down to find the lyrics, also provided by Northern Cree, who send along a message to everyone: 
ka-miyo-kîsikanisinâwâw
