Chase Sayer is a Native American singer from the Cree nation in Canada. He’s sung professionally across Canada and the U.S. for nineteen years with groups such as Blackstone, Iron Horse, Cree Society, and Big Bear. The song below is called “I Promise” and was written for his girlfriend (now wife) as a traditional Native “round dance” song. Round dances are generally friendship/courtship dances that are performed during pow wows and socials, and are centered around love, celebration, and companionship. Sayer hopes to preserve the traditional ways and promote the untold history of the First Nations through his thought and talent. With much to say, it’s fortunate he has such a beautiful way to say it.
