Tracks from the CD Manataka, including "Mountain Rose", "Awake", "Manataka", and "Silhouettes", have appeared on National Public Radio's popular "Echoes" program hosted by John Diliberto in 2007 through 2009. "Mountain Rose" has also been selected for the 2008 CD compilation "Tribute to Stuart Adamson" (late singer/guitarist of Big Country).

"Manataka", the band's 2nd CD, is comprised of 12 tracks of The Forefathers unique sound. The story behind the new CD is this: Hot Springs National Park is known to most people as a place of recreation. To Native Americans, this region was, and continues to be, a mystical and sacred ground known as Manataka. For thousands of years, Native peoples would pilgrimage to Manataka at regular intervals to celebrate peace. Even nations at war with each other would put aside their disputes to meet at Manataka. The music on this CD is inspired by the themes of Manataka: peace, healing, respect for our natural world, and a harmonious bond between all peoples of Earth.

Velocity Magazine (June 2008) stated: "Manataka is superb and richly textured. Its global essence is obvious and will stir your soul. Manataka resurrects the vision and the incredible zeal our hearts all hold for peace all over the world."
