lyrics

Ishpakweya (Stand of Tall Trees)

Ish – pak – way – ya,
Ish – pak – way – ya,
Ish – pak – way – ya,
Oh Ish – pak – way – ya.

Ish – pak – way – ya
Is an Algonquin phrase
That means
“Stand of tall trees”.

The Ish – pak – way – ya
Helped my great grandma
Escape
Residential school.

The seven above,
The seven below,
The seven among us,
The seven we know.

CHORUS -
Run away, run away
Run away great grandma
Little girl, outlaw
In the Ish – pak – way – ya.

The Ish – pak – way – ya
Is sacred because
It holds
The seven teachings.

Oh Ish – pak – way – ya
We love you because
You care
For all generations.

The seven above,
The seven below,
The seven among us,
The seven we know.

CHORUS – X 2
Run away, run away
Run away great grandma
Little girl, outlaw
In the Ish – pak – way – ya.

Ish – pak – way – ya,
Ish – pak – way – ya,
Ish – pak – way – ya,
Ish – pak – way – ya.
