Baa Nits’ínkees…

You did not understand

So you called us savage and branded us uncivilized

 

Baa Nits’ínkees…

You did not understand

So you scorched the land and poisioned the water

 

Baa Nits’ínkees…

You did not understand

So you scribbled our treaties and determined our rights

 

Baa Nits’ínkees…

You did not understand

So you wrote our histories and told our stories

 

Baa Nits’ínkees …

You still did not understand

So you ripped out our tongue and abducted our children

 

Think about it…

We were not educated enough you said

So you did not even bother to listen

 

THINK ABOUT IT…

Our numbers became few

So you continue to ignore us

 

THINK ABOUT IT!…

You got too comfortable

So now you pretend to understand

…and refuse to change

 

Eight Generations

Millions of Indigenous people

All reduced to cultural tokens for your vile machine

 

…It is time for you to listen

K’ADÍ! BAA NITS’ÍNKEES DÍSHNÍ!

(THAT’S ENOUGH! THINK ABOUT IT…I SAID!)
