Warning: this is not party music. These songs are stories about the struggles of indigenous communities the world over. Ok. Most of them are. There is one song about getting old.

HWÉELDI – What is that?

First off, the pronunciation is not too hard but there’s many ways I’ve heard it said. Here’s how I pronounce it (whale-d). What is it? It refers to a time in history when the Navajo people were force marched from their homelands across NM and AZ to a desolate piece of land in southern NM. If you’re interested, here’s a book by Jennifer Denetdale recounting that horrible part of history.

Welcome Son Of Hwéeldi Fans!

We’re excited to be on a new journey of sorts. Same guys. Just older. More aware of our surroundings. Learned a few musical things in our 9th year. And generally needing a change. Thanks for stopping by as we continue to grow. – jj
