Dan Nanamkin - Standing in Water.jpg

The wind is flowing, the sun is shining … seasons will change.
Love never dies!
The same love my ancestors had for me long ago
runs swiftly thru my veins.
The love I have for the children and our future generations
is carried in my voice!
Like the circle of life, we will forever be bond to one another
just as the seasons!
Our people need prayers for we stand at a moment of truth,
truth of our understanding between these two worlds ...
It is a heavy burden to walk in the foot prints of our ancestors
and carry the future of our youth in a world
that does not yet understand.
