Oglala Oyate

I sit upon Maka Ina
my legs on the cold ground
the starry night all around
my blanket of black
pierced with the Ancestors

I pray in the quiet
for my Ancestors
for the Grandfathers and Grandmothers
and the children
I pray for the Hoop to be mended

With smoke and prayer
they are lifted
into the silent night air
these gifts of Heart
for the People

Prayers for the Oyate
prayers for the Sacred Chanupa
and Eagle Staffs
prayers for justice
at last

the sky a pinpoint blanket
the air crystal clear
Grandmother Moon shines down
a new crescent
a promise

I pray
I pray
I pray
I pray

Let my People know
the Hoop remains
that we are praying
that we live
let my People know.
