about

Witchi Tai To is a traditional healing song in the Native American Church. Indian jazz musician Jim Pepper adapted this old Comanche chant, which he had learned from his grandfather, and added the English words: “Water spirit feeling springin’ round my head / Makes me feel glad that I’m not dead.” Witchi Tai To is a celebration of “the healing power of water spirit.”
