The Earth is Our Mother

(Hopi)

The earth is our mother,
We must take care of heh
We must take care of her.

Hey yanna, ho yanna, hey yan yan.
Hey yanna, ho yanna, hey yan yan.

Her sacred ground we walk upon
With every step we take.
Her sacred ground we walk upon
With every step we take.

Hey yanna, ho yanna, hey yan yan.
Hey yanna, ho yanna, hey yan yan.

The earth is our mother,
She will take care of us.
The earth is our mother,
She will take care of us.

Hey yanna, ho yanna, hey yan yan.
Hey yanna, ho yanna, hey yan yan.
