"The Spirit of the Hawk" is a country-dance song by the Swedish band Rednex, released from their second album, "Farm Out". The lyrics include the spoken lines "My people, some of them, have run away to the hills, and have no shelter, no food. No one knows where they are. Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. I will fight no more," taken from Chief Joseph's famous speech.
