Native American
I heard this sung at a Children’s Music Network National gathering in 1994 led by two young girls, Rebecca Schwartz and Elizabeth Knickerboker . Thank you to Brooke Chalise for sharing this. It can be found on her recording ‘Singing Joy to the Earth.’ It is a great song for teaching listening skills and drumming.

Lyrics

Refrain: Oh wit chi chi oh, oh weh ay oh
Oh wit chi chi oh, oh weh ay oh

Where we walk is holy, sacred is the ground
Forest, mountain, river, listen to the sound

May we fly like eagles, flying so high
Circling the universe on wings of pure light.

Hear the wind a blowing, singing through the trees
Crying to the people, to walk the way of peace.

Where we walk is holy, sacred is the ground
Forest, mountain, river, listen to the sound


Ben: bass
Ernie: wooden flute
