Poem: Doing the Work

Put your flannel shirt on,
Get in your truck,

Prayers around the fire,
Throw the cedar in the fire,
Do the work, 
Here in the territories,

Reclaim,
Decolonize,
The ancestors are around us,

We gather our strength,
We speak,

What is depth,
What is deep,
What is knowledge,
What is wisdom,
 
 The ancestors are around us.
