Cherokee Morning Song: I am of the Great Spirit
"Cherokee Morning Song" performed by the native American group, Walela. The group was founded in 1996 by sisters Rita Coolidge and Priscilla Coolidge, with Priscilla's daughter Laura Satterfield as the third member. From Wikipedia: "Walela" means hummingbird in Cherokee. Coolidge considered this group important not only in honoring her Cherokee ancestors, but also in bringing their culture to others.
