Description: Nitootimuk (Visiting Song) is a prayer to the Spirits and Nature Keepers who dwell in the sacred places. When you become open and aware, you can feel the life, vitality and beauty present in nature. By thanking the Beings who keep these places pristine and profound, you actively participate in sustaining health and wellness for all. It is a song of reciprocity. Like putting down tobacco, you sing this song to give back to those who give to you unconditionally.
