The Prime Minister of the country needs to address the nation, he needs to talk the language on unity. This bloodshed needs to stop. The country needs a healing touch. This hate needs to end, it will destroy a generation of Indians if allowed to fester.

Various - Haida: Indian Music Of The Pacific Northwest (1986)
Genre: Aboriginal
Rating: ★★★☆☆
Probably one of the most important recordings I've ever heard. The Haida are an indigenous people that live on the archipelago of Haida Gwaii, in the nation-state of Canada. What's happened to these people can only be described as genocide. Yet here their music survives. Which is why it upsets me that the stream was a low quality vinyl rip. Folkways is failing to preserve these important recordings.
