I'm From

I'm From

I am from Texas to Canada,

A nomadic tribe that is fond of hunting buffalo,

Making knives and cups from its bones,

And eating its flesh for food.


I am from a religion where everything has a spirit,

Worshipping the Great Spirit who has power over all spirits,

Warrior shields decorated with paint and feathers,

Medicine men that could heal the sick in our society.


 I am from tepees that form a circle,

Buffalo hide and deerskin clothing,

Colored paints made from clay and berries,

Feather headdresses and peace pipes.


I am from legging, loincloths and moccasins,

Parfleches to store corn and beans,

Collecting firewood and preparing food,

From storytelling grandparents to sign language for surprise attacks.
