Willie Thrasher Thrasher was born in Aklavik, a hamlet located in the Inuvik region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, in 1948. At five years of age, Thrasher was taken from his family and sent to a residential school where he was forbidden to practice his Inuvialuit culture, a shameful initiative by the Canadian government to assimilate Indigenous people into mainstream society.
Spirit Child is the debut album from Inuk singer-songwriter Willie Thrasher recorded by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in the late 70's. This compilation is an officially licensed reissue by Future Day Recordings d/b/a Light in The Attic Records & Distribution LLC Gatefold "tip on" jacket with full lyrics.
Willie Thrasher has one of the more fascinating stories from the era’s cast of songwriters: at the age of five he was stripped of his Inuvialuit culture and forced into a residential school by the Canadian government as a way of assimilating indigenous people into what it deemed mainstream society. Spirit Child is the result of his spiritual journey and an important reminder that the atrocities the Canadian government committed all those years ago will never truly leave its victims. How does it feel to look back on your album, Spirit Child? I never dreamed that some would relocate those songs and put them together, put the musicians together. Or finding the album and spending 12 years working on it.
