Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Oneda Tribe's presentation of the song "It's Our Country". I went to the Internet and found that it was sung by Crystal Shawanda who I guess is not Oneida.

This was a totally random sighting because I knew nothing of the tribe's appearance in the parade, but I appreciated the moving song and it's meaning for the day.
