  1. Awesome to see this and everyone in it. As I am not going home this year , but Wing's is taking 4 of his friends.and this is proof that Rainbow is picking back up what it lost a decade or so ago. I see So much hope for Rainbow, I see workshops coming back at regional gatherings, I see focus on clean up and scouting. I see all my brothers and sisters that are seasoned gatherer's become Teachers that love to learn as well as share what has been passed down.
    My grandmother's back is being pressed to the ground
    by the oppressor man press'n down down down

    oppressor man! see what you're doing!
    oppressor man! creating our ruin!
    oppressor man! hear what i'm saying
    oppressor man! be changing yer ways now!
    her body is not a commodity! (x2)
    not a product to be bought or sold! not to be mined for oil and gold! (x2)

    she's got what she's got to give!
    she gives so that we can live!
    she makes this world alive!
    without her we don't survive!

    so wake up nuh nuh nuh nuh NOW!
    wake people hear the call!
    wake up children one and all!
    disposable society we're living in today
    disposable society gonna throw itself away
    gonna blow itself away!
