Lyrics

Yeh, feel the California sun beating down
Yeh, see the pretty roses sprout from the ground
You hear voices whisper through the mission walls
Louder than all the kids and their parents’ cel phone calls
If you stop to listen
You can hear their hearts beating loud

Can’t keep those California Indians down
They’re tough and resilient
And holding their ground
Can’t keep those California Indians down
From Miwok to Viejas
They are still standing proud

Toypurina led a mission revolt
Ishi emerged from the woods and took the whole world by storm
Pomo Basket weavers practice their art
Cahuilla Bird Singers are practicing their parts
If you stop to listen
You can hear their hears beating loud

Can’t keep those California Indians down
They’re tough and resilient
And holding their ground
Can’t keep those California Indians down
From Chumash to Choinumni
They are still standing proud
If you stop to listen
You can hear their hearts beating loud

Can’t keep those California Indians down
They’re tough and resilient
And holding their ground
Can’t keep those California Indians down
From Wintu to Wiyot
They are still standing proud
