By now, you've heard The Kindly Ones performing
a song called "Noonweh," a catchy number with a
bizarre, sing-a-long chorus.
"Who the $%^# is Okhaga?" you might
ask. "What does H'eon, K'eon, Noonweh (Noonweh) mean?"
and "Why is this song so important?" (I'm so glad
you asked!). Read on and discover the truth, and how it could
change your life!
Once there was a god called Okhaga, who was
the Iroquois God of the South Wind. He was very important
to the Iroquois people because his influence drove away the
winter and helped the crops grow. However, times changed and
Okhaga found himself out of work. After all, who's gonna pray
to the South Wind when there's Central Air available? So Okhaga
had to find another job.
One day, he realized that there were many
people driving cars around town and very few parking spaces.
He saw people grumbling and swearing as that cursed Mini Cooper
stole the sweet spot they just saw. All that desire for a
place to park their SUV's turned to frustration as the only
space they could find was too small for them to fit ("Curse
you, black-hearted Mini Cooper driver!"). So Okhaga decided
he would become the God of Good Parkma (that's good karma
in the parking lot, in case I'm losing ya).
By now you're probably wondering, "Hey,
I own a car! I could use some of that Good Parkma. How do
I get it?" (You're good at asking these questions!).
It's very simple. When you're in your car,
one person sings out "H'eon K'eon Noonweh!" and
your friends respond with "Noonweh!" (Go watch The
Kindly Ones onstage to learn the proper technique). That's
all you need to make your driving life easier.
