Lyrics

People of the caribou

Taken from the innocence
Taken from the land
Victims of a circumstance that few can understand

People of the caribou
You once were strong but now are few
If we can learn from our yesterdays
We can change the history were making today

About one hundred years ago
As remembered by the very of the very old
We had a balance with the land
Before the dawn of the trapping man

Who showed us new possessions
Wonders never seen
So we traded furs for weapons
A way of life for need

People of the caribou
You once were strong but now are few
If we can learn from our yesterdays
We can change the history were making today
