thoughts of the earth are my thoughts
The voice of the earth is my voice
All that belongs to the earth belongs to me
All that surrounds the earth surrounds me
It is lovely indeed; it is lovely indeed.
land is my backbone...I can paint, dance, create and sing
ancestors did before me. I think of land as the history
of my nation.
It tells of how we came into being and what system we live...My
is mine only because I came in spirit from that land and
so did my
ancestors of the same land. My land is my foundation.
