“Ani Kuni” is a native American prayer that turned into a rhyme for kids or lullaby. Although most First Nations of Canada assimilated the prayer, it is likely that it came from the Iroquois nation. It was sung on a tinge of weeping, sometimes with tears on the cheeks of the dancers, thinking of their condition of dependence.
This Amerindian prayer is comparable to the Christian prayer Our Father (Pater Noster).
