"Idle No More"
Weep as I Hold
the Book, with Encircled
Arms, close to my Chest.
I think," Dear God, What have
"The Earth was Created
by the Assistance of the Sun,
and it should be Left as it Was...
The Country was made Without Lines of demarcation,
and it is No Man's Business to Divide it...
I See the Whites all over the Country gaining Wealth,
and See their Desire to Give us Lands that are Worthless...
The Earth and Myself are of One Mind.
The Measure of the Land and the Measure of our Bodies are the Same.
Say to us If you Can say it, that you were Sent by the Creative Power to talk to us.
Perhaps you think the Creator sent you Here to dispose of us as you see fit.
If I Thought you were Sent by the Creator I Might be Induced to Think you
had the Right to dispose of me.
Do Not Misunderstand me,
but Understand Fully with my Affection for the Land.
I Never said the Land was Mine to do as I Chose.
The One who has the Right to Dispose of it is the One who has Created it.
I Claim a Right to Live on my Land,
and Accord you the Privilege to Live on yours.
