    It’s about love

    It’s about life

    It’s about our culture

    It’s about life

    It’s about our culture

    Our family our community

    Our genius our birthright

     

    We remember our glory our stories

    Yesterdays yesterday

    Those that came before me

    Today’s today

    Rebuilding our way

    Tomorrows tomorrow

    Sunshine good times

    And learning from our sorrows

     

    It’s about love

    It’s about life

    It’s about our culture

    Our family our community

    Our genius our birthright
