A CENTRAL 
INUIT CHANT

Traditional
 

 

 

 

 

 




 

Ayii, ayii, ayii
My arms, they wave high in the air,
My hands, they flutter behind my back,
They wave above my head
Like the wings of a bird.
Let me move my feet.
Let me dance.
Let me shrug my shoulders.
Let me shake my body.
Let me crouch down.
My arms, let me fold them.
Let me hold my hands under my chain.
