Watch Us, Watch Me - Poem by Kimberly Santistevan

Watch us praise our mother earth
Watch us dance to the skies
Watch us gain more strength to go on.

Watch us dance to the heavens
Watch us be thankful for what we are today
Watch us be thankful for what we have around us.

Watch us show you our heritage
Watch us show you our strong courage
Watch us show you what we have grown to understand.

Watch us and let us show you that we are powerful in our own way
Watch us and let us show you that we are never weak
Watch us and let us show you that we have been here before.

Watch us show you our beliefs
Watch us show you our faith in each of us
Watch us show you what we are.

Watch us dance like there is no tomorrow
Watch us through our eyes of what our ancestors have taught us
Watch us give each other strength to go on.

Watch me prove to you that I am strong
Watch me prove to you that nothing will make me weak
Watch me prove to you that my people will get stronger.

Watch us sweat for our fathers before us
Watch us give thanks for what we had
Watch us be proud of what is apart us our souls.

Watch us be proud of the people we are
Watch us be thankful of the food
Watch us be thankful of the animals.

Let me show you what I am
Let me show you my colors of what I see
Let me show you my faith that I will always have.

Let me show you how proud I am to be Native American
Let me show you how strong I am inside
Let me show you what I don’t hide.
