The song “Wildflower” by Indigenous singers lingered in the air of the office at Commerce Valley Drive West, at the unveiling of the first legacy room in Markham.

Emely Velasquez, singer of Strong Water Women, a collective group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women using drumming and singing as a means of achieving unity, shared the story of the song “Wildflower” with the working team in the legacy room.

“(The song) ‘Wildflowers’ talks about a time when there were people coming to take our children. And it talks about how someone came on a horse from another community and stood on a mountain and looked down over the mountain. And as he stood on the horse, because he was so high up, all the Indigenous people below in the village, they look like wildflowers. And it is called ‘Wildflowers’ because the children used to play in these fields of wildflowers. They spread the seeds as they played and ran in the fields. And when the children were taken, those fields never came back because there was no one out there playing in those fields to be able to spread the seeds.”
