About Elisapie

Her grandfather once said... “In order not to get lost, we must always look to where we came from.” At the outset of her visit to Onion Lake First Nation, Elisapie finds a piece of home in the prairie skies of Saskatchewan. A welcoming community stirs an inspired tribute song and in the words of one Onion Lake resident, “She has an Earth Angel voice.”

Prairie Skies


All the way to the prairie’s I’ve come
No longer dreaming of Neil Young
Nunalu ulapirsanalirsuni
Sunami Kinguumanartuqarani

It’s been so long I’ve seen such skies
And they make my dreams shine bright go high
Anirrasimajuujaalirama
Saimanirsaulirmigama

 When you showed me your healing dance
You showed me your colors and your pride
Taanisiqataurumalirama
Sinnatuumajuujaalirmigama

It’s been so long I’ve seen such skies
And they make my dreams shine bright go high
Anirrasimajuujaalirama
Saimanirsaulirmigama
