As the the long, COVID Summer of 2020 drew to a close with its protests and violence over deep, long-held, systemic injustices in the life of our nation, we wanted to remind ourselves and our community of the hope we have in our shared American vision.
Conceived by Timothy Soden-Groves, “Freedom Song” was the result of a truly collaborative process in its lyrical content and musical arrangement — a process that drew us into a place of profound trust and respect for our different experiences and perspectives. The song was released 9/14/2020.
We’ve had so much fun with outro credit videos. Please be sure to watch this one, featuring “Gigaa Ombishkaamin” (We Will Rise), an original composition by Nitaa-Nagamokwe (Lyz Jaakola).

I’ve no time to argue over lies
So tell me of your dreams
of your aspirations
of the world you want to build
And I will sing of mine.
