Kill their spirit, wolves, land, water til when?

Why is it that we still honor and admire First Nations people while we continue to allow companies and governments to try and steal their land, appropriate their culture? I do not know the answer, I do know it is wrong. How to fix it? No sure but we should try a lot harder than we have.

My Country Tis of Thy People You’re Dying: Video-Lyrics

Now that the pride of the sires receives charity.
Now that we’re harmless and safe behind laws.
Now that my life’s to be known as your heritage.
Now that even the graves have been robbed.
Now that our own chosen way is your novelty.
Hands on our hearts
We salute you your victory:
Choke on your blue white and scarlet hypocrisy.
Pitying your blindness; How you never see –
that the eagles of war whose wings lent you glory,
Were never no more than buzzards & crows:
Pushed some wrens from their nest;
Stole their eggs; changed their story.
The mockingbird sings it;
It’s all that she knows.
“Oh what can I do?”, say a powerless few.
With a lump in your throat and a tear in your eye:
Can’t you see how their poverty’s profiting you?
My country ’tis of thy people you’re dying.

Feel free to join!

All you have to do is…..

Buffy Sainte-Marie America the Beautiful

What is beautiful is the land and people – that’s what she celebrates in this version. Buffy is always good and this is worth a listen.

America the Beautiful

It’s about America the country, not America the nation state. It’s about the real America that so many people, regardless of their political associations, really feel in their hearts-you know, this beautiful, beautiful place. So, it’s yet another take on “America the Beautiful.” People seem to enjoy it.
