recovery of
mother tongues
reclaiming of
ceremonies
begins with
recovering ourselves
allowing allies
to walk the journey
uncovering the lies
and deceit which
commodifies
our first mother
nigaani aki
dismissing concerns
and narratives of
the first people
on turtle island
aids in bankrupting
the beauty that is
mother earth
the resources
are finite
we must recover
for the sake of
nigaani aki
and for those
who will inherit
what we leave
for them
must they inherit
recovery?
stand with.
walk with.
learn with.
finding myself
in a constant
flux of balance
relearning teachings
from nigaani aki
our first mother
and
educating myself
within the
mainstream
trying to get
back to that
main stream
where the land
teaches us
how to be
balanced again
educating my
alcoholic mind
trained to numb
the emotions
the thoughts
the spirit
finding ceremony
in the rooms
with similar folks
searching for
well-being
looking high + low
feeling high + low
the reconnection
of ourselves and
nigaani aki
begins
with fellowship
community
nationhood.
stand with us.
walk with us.
