Hunters Songs

An Old Inupiat Song

I sing to the seas
I sing to my kayak
It is part of my body, We fly upon the waves.
It is my companion, my brother, It is my wife.
If I die on the sea, we die together.
If we go down together, we remain together. If I die an old man it will rest upon my grave And still we go on together
And still we remain together.

This was performed by Bill Singer and his class from Santa Rosa Charter.
