This was inspired by Kate Cliffords fine poem, "The Northern Wind Blows".


"keewatin" means "northwind" in he language of the Cree people . . .

Keewatin calls
the north wind whistles
the tune and names the step.

"dance with me, sister
step with me, brother
children of my mother,
come dance with me!

dance with me on the mud flats
through the willows,
to the black spruce stand,

from seashore mountain
and rolling foothills
across prairie gold,
to hardwood bush
come dance with me!

across the inland seas,
rolling down to ocean shore,
wherever i wander,
wherever i am known,
brothers and sisters.
come dance with me! "

the north wind speaks
to her siblings,
whistling tune and step,
Keewatin calls.
