Throw back your hair
Get rid of that tie
Give your TV
A big kiss goodbye
Your tribe needs leaders
Can't do it alone
Time to win back
All that you own


You hear the call
Stand proud!
Stand tall!
CHORUS NDN Man Oh, NDN Man Turn it around And do what you can There's no tomorrow Without a plan NDN Man NDN Man Come out of the woods Come out of the bar Your sisters are wondering Where you are Get ready to work It's time to pitch in Can't win the victory Til' you begin You hear the call Stand proud! Stand tall!
CHORUS

ABOUT NDN MAN

One complaint from Indian women is the lack of participation by Indian men in getting the "work" of the people done. I've heard comments including "Whenever you see an organization trying to make changes, it's always full of women. Indian men don't seem to want to lend a hand." Now, I know this isn't true for ALL Indian men, but if any within the sound of my voice are still attached to their TV sets, they need to rise up and get busy!

FYI -- the term "NDN" is shorthand for "Indian."

GENOCIDE OF THE MIND: NEW NATIVE AMERICAN WRITING Edited by Marijo Moore

Terrific collection of writing from well-known authors like Leslie Marmon Silko, Simon Ortiz, Vine Deloria, Jr. and Arigon's friend Joseph Dandurand. Wonder what it's like to be Native in the 21st Century -- this a great place to start. There are several essays that talk about identity issues that prove there is no better way to learn about a people than to read what they have to say about themselves
