Lyrics:

Those in power don’t care about hurting us

Their power sits on our backs so let’s stand up

They say “pay your taxes” and obey silently

Mechanize your part in their machine

 

Gotta stay trucha, pon ojo

Families imprisoned, ICE raids, and who knows

They want us scared, like cucuy! cucuy everywhere!

Together let’s break through the fear

 

They want borders, bombs, to eat death and fear

Frack, enslave, oppress, and profiteer

We must join together to survive

Let’s take a leap, break them chains, and let’s unite

 

We’re all up in the system

It’s come down to us versus them

Take the white blindfold off your eyes

Divest, direct action, decolonize

 

Returning to our earth-based ways is key

For all the colors of humanity

We gotta move, we gotta act, we’re out of time

Take my hand, our liberation is intertwined

 

We’re all connected for a reason

Trust your gut, trust your vision

Even if you’re deep in the machine

Together tenemos que sacudir

Lyrics:

Children of Anahuac:

we carry the medicine inside.

We hear Mother Earth now.

We have removed the wasichu lies.

Labels can’t define us,

through our blood to this land we are tied.

Tierra sagrada:

maiz, mesquite, nopal give us life.

Their walls can’t confine us.

Millennial caminos will survive.

Wasichu can’t blind us.

We’ve had enough of suffering and lies.

We remember our place here.

All that was taken has come back to life.

Children of Anahuac:

we carry the medicine inside.

Noyollocuicatl

tlazocamati

Tonantzin tlalli,

atl ne tlayoli,

ka’nochi nonemilis.

(From my heart I sing

thank you,

Mother Earth,

water is life,

all my relations.)

Nahuatl Huasteco

HOT OFF THE PRESS: “La Cultura Nos Cura” music video!

HOT OFF THE PRESS:  Con mucho amor I would like to present to you the *NEW* music video for “La Cultura Nos Cura.”  It is  the first music video I have ever produced and includes dancing, a sprinkle of conciencia and a  Donald Trump piñata bash!

The footage comes from hermanas guerreras from Oakland  (CA), El Paso (TX), Las Cruzes (NM), McAllen, San Antonio, and Guadalajara (Mexico.)  The video is in Spanish and Nahuatl.

I know that our communities are under attack daily but I wanted to produce a piece of art that could help us take a moment to stop, dance, feel joy, and remember the beauty in why we are still here resisting.

*************************************

IMPORTANT:  There is a call to action for prayers like #AyoyotesOnTheGround or through an international #Floricanto #InXochitlInCuicatl in solidarity with Standing Rock.  Spiritual and artistic warriors are being called to pray and produce artistic visions that provide consciousness, healing, and hope for the water and earth protectors at the Standing Rock reservation and across the continent.
