Forty years after four brothers first formed the famed powwow and Round Dance band Northern Cree, they are releasing their first fully self-published and owned record, “Ôskimacîtahowin: A New Beginning”. The album is produced by Bear Witness and 2oolman from The Halluci Nation. As many as 16 musicians perform with Northern Cree at any given time. Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce speaks with Steve Wood about the new album and what’s next for this band originally from Treaty Six Territory.
