One song definitely has this word. It is the Fancy Dance Trick Song on the 1997 Dance Hard album (still my favorite Northern Cree). The translation is written as "Honoring the Eagle Feather".
Here's a tip for all you Cree powwow music fans (yes I am one too). Blackstone put out an album in 1999 called LIVE... In Wild Rose Country. I couldn't believe it when I opened the cover. There were actually Cree words with English translations. This is in no way a substitute for a knowledgeable Cree but when you are as far south as I am it helps.
