Musk Ox

By LaVon Bridges

Chant: Musk Ox
Oomingmak

Musk ox,
Bearded One,
standing in a circle
guarding cows
and little calves
from a wolf attack.
Musk ox,
Bearded One,
standing in a circle.

The ice is breaking up.

Sikuliqiruq.


Caribou

By Alice Wright

Chant: Caribou, caribou

Oh, you caribou, so many in a herd,
dropping calves in rolling hills,
need to be alert.

Oh, you caribou, so many in a herd,
Here come the grizzlies,
don’t you think they’ll hurt?

Oh, you caribou, so many in a herd,
Here come the wolves;
they’ll eat you with a smirk.

Oh, you caribou, so many in a herd,
Here come mosquitoes.
You’d better roll in dirt.

Oh, you caribou, so many in a herd,
Here come ice and snow.
For lichens you’ll search.


We are the Rogers Park Wolves

By Alice Wright

We stay in the pack, Jack.
We eat good food, Dude.
We help each other, brother.
We work together, Heather.
We like to howl, Pal.
OOOOoooo.

We are very smart, Bart.
Each one is unique, Zeke.
We obey our leader, Peter.
Together we are strong, Wong.
We like to howl, Pal.
OOOOoooo.

We’re always alert, Bert.
We keep peace in the clan, Stan.
We like to communicate, Mate.
We run faster than Moose, Duce.
We like to howl, Pal.
OOOOoooo.
