Grizzly Bear Town

Xuuaajii ‘Laanaas [Grizzly Bear Town]

Xuuaajii ‘Laanaas

Home of T’iis Kwaanaaya [Home of the Supernatural Being, Many-Ledges] Place of wild stillness

Whoa ho, wanagan iijiidan [Centred Place]

The ancients say

Find your place of peace Protect the land and sea, Go there and be!

Whoa ho, wanagan iijiidan

Sometimes I want to go back in time!

And sit with nanaay 7aawaay [great-grandmother] in xuuaajii ‘laanas

Oh, but colonization was a hard time!

Decimation, segregation, suppression

Vestiges remain today

Those in sGaana tllGaay [Spirit-Land] whisper

Anger is victim, in disguise

It eats at your soul like cancer

Instead, be

Warriors of light, peace and forgiveness

Xuuaajii ‘Laanaas, Xuuaajii ‘Laanaas

Home of T’iis Kwaanaaya

Place of wild stillness

Whoa ho, wanagan iijiidan

Warriors of Light
