Today, Nahko And Medicine For The People release their new song ‘Honor The Earth’. In honour of Earth Day, ‘Honor The Earth’ pays tribute to the Great Law Treaty at Lake Onondaga, which led to the creation of the Iroquois Confederacy. Based on principles of peace and formed consensus, ‘Honor The Earth’ is from the band’s forthcoming album, Take Your Power Back, out May 15th on Medicine Tribe Records/SideOneDummy Records and Executive Produced by cut&dry and Dan Fratoni.
Nahko will debut the song live at 9:30 PM UK time tonight in partnership with the non-profit Honor The Earth, which fights for Indigenous environmental justice and awareness, on the organisation’s Instagram. At 8:30PM UK time prior to the performance, Nahko will host a Reddit AMA to answer fan questions about his new album, his passion for environmentalism and indigenous rights, and more.

“I’m incredibly proud of this song, as it’s been with me for many years now. I encourage you all to read about The Great Law of Peace from which I drew inspiration. This is definitely an anthem message for Earth Day! Honor the Earth, the Mother comes first, live in a good way for Her!” – Nahko
Nahko will also participate in Earth Day’s 50th anniversary initiative today with a special performance of the song airing in their global Earth Day digital package. Additional participants include global calls to action from Prince Albert, Pope Francis, Andrea Boccelli and more. “In the midst of a global pandemic, Earth Day Live aims to spur collective action to protect our communities and our planet, through performances, conversations, and training sessions curated by climate activists,” the organisers told Rolling Stone.
