wasi'chu was a 4-5 piece blackened negative anarchist hardcore/crust/doom band from Windsor, ON. They changed their name to Marusya in 2016:
"We have changed our name (from wasi'chu) to Marusya. There is something not really okay about 5 non-indigenous men redefining/recontextualizing a Lakota word for our own purposes. At the end of the day words have power, and by taking wasi'chu we were in some way complicit in taking power away from indigenous peoples, which is the last thing we want to be involved in. This was obviously not our intent, but it is the reality of the situation. Huge thanks to anyone who has talked to us about this over the past year or so."
