Daughters of the Glittering World

***

Rivers of ignorance disjoint

In the Yellow World

Where a river of pride divided

Altsé hastiin, First Man

 and Altsé asdzáá, First Woman

      A disheartening division      

     

In this Glittering World

Shiny sons we were meant to bear

Our men tell us to learn

“But don’t get too smart”

Be a leader

“But you can’t lead your people”

 

Sometimes, I feel the water

at my feet

Is the river coming back?

Or is this all in my mind?

 

Is education

forming these rivers

between my unborn

Kinłichii’nii babies

and their father?

Or is it ignorance?

 

These colonized times

have made the

violent waters run rapid

Swept away

our culture and language

 

Leaving heirloom

lands naked

then overruled

by knotted weeds

 

However, the daughters

of the glittering world

Hold the tools

To weed out our sorrows

Sow the seeds of the forgotten ones

And Germinate love, once lost

 

We are the daughters of the glittery world

Rest assured we may sulk and sigh for our

Loved ones

Our Resilient Roots

Are strong enough for any Sadistic Storm

Or Raging River

                                                                           So bring the water

 

For we are the daughters of the glittering world

                                                                                              And we know who we live for
