Forgotten Holocaust

There is a strength in my people

We seem quiet, reserved

Don’t ever mistake it for feeble

We are just ready to fight for what we deserve

We were supposed to be swept away

The forgotten holocaust

There was supposed to be a day

When our ways were lost

Don’t ever underestimate

The way the dice rolled

Our forgotten fate

Shines like a picture show

You can’t forget us

There is no ashes to ashes

There is no dust to dust

We are here in masses

Maybe you can try and forget

the attempted genocide

By this Government

But we are still here for this ride

Our ways will carry on

We hold onto them dear

The Lakota live on

Hell yeah, we’re still here.

Don’t underestimate

Our love for this land

This time fate

Is in our hands

You called us savages

Never knowing we kept our ways

While you tried to ravage us

By trying to take it all away

We held on and prayed for better days

Those days are here

Listen to my written word

We still have no fear

We need to be heard

You can’t push us away

We refuse to disappear

Because there will come a day

When you will have no choice but to hear

That this country

My people still serve proudly

Broke every treaty

I will tell you loudly

We are Lakota

We never went down without a fight

We need no one to save us

Read what I write

We are still here

We will carry on

The ways, the strength, the pride

It’s an unbreakable bond

That shines from the inside

We are Lakota

And today is a good day to die.

Hoka Hey!

We will carry on

Our ways held in our hearts so dear

Oglala Lakota are strong

Hell yeah, we’re still here.

You hear?
