Ikwe

Track #6 Ancestral Legacy Album

 

Children of Mother Earth
pray for those with no guardian
That together we may stand vigilant
against those who seek to harm them
We pray for courage our spirits are enraged
because this world has not changed
We pray - let her go (4x)
We pray for the sisters, the mothers,
the daughters, and the wives
We pray for all Ikwe
who have lost their lives
We pray for answers, for truth,
most of all we pray for their safe return
We pray – let her go (8x)
Authorities do not listen
to the families of the victims
The laws are not protecting them
complications with jurisdiction
Tribal Courts cannot prosecute,
criminals let off without conviction,
makes a target of Indigenous women
We pray for the taken to survive what they endure
and rise above the ashes into a bright future
We pray they know they are not alone
and are loved by all
We pray for days filled with joy and light
for that what Mother Earth designed
We pray people come forward
stand up for what is right
And we pray for all Mother’s children to sleep safe each night

Paint the earth red

Arrowhead
One shot and it’s dead

Arrowhead
Paint the earth red
Arrowhead

One shot and you’re dead

Great White Sea

Track #5 The Ghost Dance album

Paradise once was here not quite that long ago,
Indigenous peoples inhabited from Maine to Mexico,
They had love for the land for it was sacred and pure
But their whole world turned upside down

on that day when Columbus had become lost

First they make promises
And they take all our land

 


The Great White Sea,

Great White Sea,

The Great White Sea,
Is drowning me!

We were once so free
Brave and mighty
Are we.....

A sea of Europeans invading
from east to west,
Swallowing all in its path
His greed would not rest,
To destroy all the Natives
And take over all his land,
We had to fight back the waves
with all that we had,
But nothing could ever stop
This Great White Sea Of
Death and Disease

First they take everything and they give nothing back

The Great White Sea,

Great White Sea,

The Great White Sea
Is drowning me!



Death Valley

Track #8 The Ghost Dance album

I walk
Into the West
Take me there
I walk
Into the desert
Take me there

Kicking up dust and bones
We’re in Death Valley
DEATH VALLEY

Kicking up dust and bones
We’re in Death Valley

We walk
Into the wind
Guide me there

We walk
Into the sunset
Guide me there

Kicking up dust and bones
We’re in Death Valley
DEATH VALLEY

Kicking up dust and bones
We’re in Death Valley


 

 

War Horse

Track #11 The Ghost Dance Album

There was a time
In history we were free
to roam wherever we want
and to hunt
And search for game
life became so much better with
lots of love
2 are 1, 1 are 2
Of horse & man
tied to land
A spirit bond that will never, ever bend
War Horse
War Horse
Run, Thunder Hooves
Swift as wind, Lightning Fast
Painted symbols adorned
Marked for War
Warriors ride fearlessly at the enemy
like Crazy Horse
Dodging bullets as we dash into the battlefield
Soldiers flee the Calvary
The Horse is with me until the end.
War Horse
