From

land defender

to water protector

we each have been gifted the capability to connect


and protect

the land

we share


we share

the land

with all elements

the water

from grandfather

sky 


and the

fruits of grandmotherearth

abundance

for us the

children

to share

and protect

the medicine

and become

medicine


for

generations

from head

to tail


turtle island.
