Pat Bellanger, Awanakwe (Water Woman), passed away on April,2, 2015. A matriarch of the American Indian Movement, Ms. Bellanger shared her story with the students at Sanford Middle School in 2013. The kids wrote the song “Awanakwe” to honor her.
I had the most awesome musical experience of my life—when I heard the fourth grade children at Eagle Heights Spanish Immersion school sing “Your Song” honoring our Elders! One of the elders was my son John. WHAT A SONG!
Thank You, Jack Tschida
