"Wampum Prayer" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
In our hand
An old old old thread
Trail of Blood
And amens
Greed is the gift
For the sons
Of the songs
Hear this prayer
Of the wampum
This is the tie
That will bind us

    General CommentAhhh ... sorry:

    "There [in Tucson] Scarlet picks up the voice of the Native American ancestors on WAMPUM PRAYER after visiting the site of a massacre of the Apache people. "She has a dream and follows the voice and prayer of an old woman who survived and whose song is woven into the land." There's an obvious parallel with the songlines of Aboriginal folklore in Australia as Scarlet is propelled by the dream until she reaches Cherokee country and the ancestry of her own people."
