All around the world
People are looking inside
The teachings of the past
Are better than what they have tried

CHORUS

Native, Native, Native
Coming home
Native, Native, Native
Coming home

I feel I understand
Our elders had inner sight
They saw beyond today
Past the pain and the fright

CHORUS

Let's begin where we began
The power of change is in our hands
In our hands

Never let the dream die
Finish what they began
There's changes being made
And I'm doing all that I can

CHORUS

ABOUT NATIVE

The above photo pictures two very concerned and active women, Mary and Carrie Dann. Their biggest challenge today -- keeping their land. "The Bureau of Land Management claims they own Western Shoshone land, though that is simply another way of saying they want to steal it," says Carrie Dann. Both are dedicated to making sure traditional land is available to the next generation. Everyone at Starrwatcher Online applauds their dedication to the cause -- and unfortunately their story isn't unique. Indian Land issues are prevalent throughout the United States.

Some of the people Arigon encounters on her travels are many urban and suburban Indians who want to reclaim their heritage. "When you are raised outside of the Indian community, it's tough to go back and find acceptance -- even in your own mind. However, more and more of us 'city Indians' are connecting within big towns like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York and getting together!"
