Passamaquoddy Lullaby is The Royal Song of the Day for Sunday, September 4th.
The Passamaquoddy Tribe is located near the St. Croix River, with the tribal area covering both Canada and The United States. This lullaby is a beautiful piece of Passamaquoddy culture, and offers a moment of calm meditation. Though, the Duchess also shared this song today in honor of the powwow of another tribe, which is happening this weekend…
The Shinnecock Indian Nation is located on Long Island, New York. Labor Day weekend is the annual powwow for the Shinnecock. You can find a flier, with information and directions: here. There is still time to attend, on Monday, September 5th.
The idea of a powwow encompasses many strategies for peace. Powwows provide a chance to share, socialize, dance, and enjoy music. Modern powwows are usually big gatherings, which include Native people and non-Native people, who wish to celebrate Native culture.

The Royal Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song. We also understand how the values of sharing and diversity can help to resolve conflict, create harmony, and support peace.
