PBS, presents ” We Shall Remain “ a five part series

At the heart of the project is a five-part television series that shows how Native peoples valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture — from the Wampanoags of New England in the 1600s who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s who harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. WE SHALL REMAIN represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project. <<<<< { source PBS }

For more than 15 years the Native Flute Ensemble has been at the forefront of the

revival of interest in Native American music throughout the world. Through the

group’s five releases, the ensemble received critical and popular acclaim from early

on with releases like “Ritual Mesa” and “Gathering of Shamen”. The Native Flute

Ensemble was one of the first Native ensembles to marry the Native Ameri­can flute,

powwow drums and rattles with contemporary keyboards. At the same time the group

also excels in traditional Native American music as heard on several cuts on this CD.

In recent years the Native American flute has undergone an amazing renaissance as

audiences around the world have become enraptured with its sonorous sound. After

nearly being forgotten during the past several decades, Native American and

non-American listeners are rediscovering the music of what the Lakota/Sioux call the

“Enlightening Breath”.
