  1. Great Elders[1], Young Men
    Brave Nation

    Great Spirit, Grandfather
    Peaceful[2] Nation

    Holy Woman, The Moon

    Great Elders[1], Young Men
    Brave Nation

    Feather, My friend[4]
    Remember[5] the Nation

    My village doctor[6]

    All Are Related in one Nation[7]

    [1] meaning god
    [2] originally means “peacekeepers”
    [3] not very sure on what “nakacijin” means
    [4] referencing eagles
    [5] roughly; could be “don’t forget”
    [6] “wichasha wakan” means “medicine man”
    [7] not toooooo sure on the ending

    • where there’s just a word “nation” it’s supposed to say “unknown”, sorry about that

      • When they take reference to “medicine man” refer to great warrior or a lucky man for his village, like a hero.

  2. What language is that? All I know is it sounds very much like a Native American language.

  3. Sacred Young man
    Be brave, for nation
    Great spirit, grandfather
    Be peacekeeper, for nation
    Holy woman, the moon
    Be Loyal, for nation
    heyyy… ayy… hee… ooh!
    Sacred Young man
    Be brave, for nation.
    Feather, my friend
    Don’t forget, for nation.
    My village’s Medicine man (Hero), we are relatives, for nation
    He… Ayy… Heeee… Ahey!
    PD: They don’t use possessive adjetives (mine, your) because the “Myself” don’t exist in this language.
    Medicine man is a hero, not a healer.

    • Thank you both, Rhys and Aaron.
      I got to understand and appreciate even more this track, now.
      What tribal language or dialect is it? Any idea?

      God bless – Namasté!

  4. I’ve been looking for the lyrics and found it here. Thanks to ‘Aaron’ to help me to understand this. I’m in love with great spirit.
