Welcome to the Matriarch (Official Music Video)

This song and video is not about me (Jah'kota) its about amplifying the rematriation movement! Welcome to the MATRIARCH is a song dedicated to to all of the strong, powerful womxn throughout Turtle Island making change, advocating for Indigenous peoples rights, and those who are on the frontline defending our land and waters. Written by Justin “Jah’kota” Holness is a reflection on the rise of the sacred feminine (Credit: Andrea Menard). Justin “Jah’kota” Holness grew up with three gandmothers (each sisters). One of them taught Nakota language classes at the First Nation University in Regina, the other was part of Chief and Council until her last breath, and the other fought for land back and re-established Ocean Man First Nation in 1990 which became the 1st all female Chief and Council in Canada. His mother did the work of healing so her kids wouldn’t have to.
