MONTREAL — Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) traditional dancer, singer and drummer Kawennotas Sedalia Fazio saw people across the globe singing during the COVID-19 pandemic, and wanted to bring her people’s song to the call for healing.

“This is for the healing of the people, healing of mother earth,” she said the video posted on Facebook before Fazio began her drum.

She spoke about why she decided to put the call out.

“I figured if we’re going to sing, we will do it with a purpose; to ask for healing,” said Fazio.

Fazio posted her song on her Facebook page Sunday afternoon, encouraging anyone else to sing their song.

Kanien’kehá:ka traditional dancer and drummer Barbara Diabo joined the song after Fazio’s call out.
