Our learners courageously share original songs. These songs are free to share. Please acknowledge the song creator and SLH.
Song is a beautiful way to express our feelings in words. We have noticed many Syilx songs are not free to share and so we have begun to write our own songs. These songs are courageously written by learners and are free to be sung and shared. Please be sure to acknowledge the song creator and Syilx Language House.
