~Proud Nation~(WB#2 HiddenDragon)






While preparing himself,
to protect his birthplace.
Mehewatta the strong Indian brave,
applies war paint to his face

Streaks of red, yellow,
white and blue.
In his long black hair,
he wears a Raven's black feather too.

On his feet he wears the mocassins,
that his mother hand-made.
Using the sharp blade of the knife,
to cut the finest suede.

Mounting his ever faithful,
steed named Arrowhead.
He goes galloping off to the sacred Buriel Grounds,
to say a prayer for the dead.

It is an ancient ritual,
carried down for generations.
From a very strong and,
very proud nation.
