about

Allumhammochwen (travel by water) is inspired loosely by old Lenni Lenape stories. The spoken narrative is from "The Lenape and Their Legends", written in 1885 by D.G. Brinton. All other lyrics are by Nechochwen.

lyrics

A voice spoke in the ancient times
To guide the People to prosperity
On the shore of a distant sea
The winds told of an eastern forest land

Take this string of beads, await the sign
Light your sacred fires in the heart of the Turtle Land

The Great Star to the North
The Morning Sun to the East
Light the path of migration
Across the water to land in which we seek

Take this string of beads, await the sign
Light your sacred fires to consolidate all the clans

A voice speaks in the modern times
To guide us back to prosperity
On the shores of this Serpent Island
The People yearn for their ancient forest land

Take this string of beads, await the sign
Light your sacred fires in the the heart of the Turtle Land
