Our roots shall continue to push up your cement

Our blades of grass shall continue to sprout up between your sidewalks

Our rivers shall continue to run over their banks

When the last drop of my blood enters mother earth

(Which will be my children’s children)

Then we will be nourished into trees, grass, mountains, rocks

For we are mother earth

We are Indians

– Annie Mae Pictou
