Memories in the Blood

 I remember

When my body was torn apart and scattered to the four corners

My severed head sat upon a pike to usher in their thanksgiving

When panthers soared across the sky and the open door had a vision

When the Ridge Party signed the treaty and the tragedy it brought

I remember

Raiding Mexicans of thier ponies and disappearing  alongside the wind

When I was given Power and bullets could not harm me

When the exodus north and the tears that salted the soil

I remember

In ”71 we marched the trail of broken treaties and for 71 days fought for soverignty

Buring my Buddy at wounded knee

I remember

What has passed  and more to come

Because my blood will not allow me to forget

We are still here,  will shall remain
