NATIVE HEART

Respect the land and Mother Earth,
The Ancestors that gave it birth,
Animals that give life,
Spirits amongst those that bring strife,
The Sun, the Moon that we praise,
This path too we shall raise,
Spirits smile upon our people, our lands,
Holding together these waters, air, fires and sands
