Native American Pride



As I hold my head high
I remember my people
Lovers of the land
People of the eagle

War paint to battle
Bow and arrow at hand
Bringing down a buffalo
It's what made you a man

Women make the clothing
Men hit the peace pipe
Sitting around the fire
Enjoying the orginal life

...to be continued
