Remembering The Forgotten...

Wounded Knee, culmination of centuries of death and sorrow,
may I come to you?
Sleeping in the heart of Unci Maka, the Ancestors stir, singing the old songs of the Oyate - a song of remembering.
I see them dancing - the power of the Sacred overwhelming.
Dreaming of you, oh Wounded Knee,
I see the Baoruco Mountains, Sand Creek, Mystic, Bear Butte, the Black Hills and Big Mountain.
I see the Buffalo and the deer dancing the dance of remembering.
I hear the Eagles cry... You are remembered by the children, oh Wounded Knee -
the mainstream blinded by complicit deceit, but there is power in the truth.
Do I mourn?
Do I grieve?
Perhaps a little of both.
But in my remembering, I rejoice for the strength of The People -
through the ages; tormented and ignored; sought out for the slaughter.
We will NOT die.
We shall live, and see the Sun rising in the East -
new beginings when the greedy have gone to their ideas of "heaven"
or "hell".
We remember the forgotten, for the forgotten live on in the heart of forever...
