    The Spiritual Warriors


    The Spiritual Warriors are a Father and Daughter team of Leroy and Daisy Joe from the Lil’wat Nation, they fuse the songs, chants and language of the Lil’wat/St’at’imc peoples with contemporary roots, reggae cultural music.

    Their debut CD recording entitled “Ancestors” won Best World Music Album at the 2019 Native American Music Awards. The songs will have you dancing, singing, and celebrating Lil’wat / St’at’imc language and culture.”

    I started picking up melodies from our hand-drum songs and finding the chords for it. I’m a huge Bob Marley fan and I love reggae and ska and world music, and I just kind of turned it into this whole kind of reggae-meets Ð it’s a fusion,” explained Joe of how the music of The Spiritual Warriors came to be. “I’m Lil’wat, I wanted to write songs in my language and this was the way to do it.”

    According to Joe, the traditional chants and beats of Lil’wat music lent themselves to modern music in a pretty peculiar way, but the resulting sound just seemed to click.”
