Sing the Water Song

There are many women’s water songs from many different cultures, and they all have deep meaning and beauty.  The Water Song in this video has a lyric that is easy to learn and does not take a long time to sing. At the 2002 Circle of All Nations Gathering, at Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg in Ottawa, Canada, Grandfather William Commanda asked Irene Wawatie Jerome, an Anshinabe/Cree whose family are the Keepers of the Wampum Belt to write a song that women attending the gathering would learn and spread it throughout the world.

I do not participate in playing
the insane game of life

The game of unnatural destruction
The game of polarization
The game of divide and rule
The game of unnatural emptiness
The game of constant distraction
The game of disconnection
The game of greed

Games are for children
and the childlike minds

To encounter themselves
and the world
To grow
To heal
To learn

Games should be played
Within safe boundaries
Protected by responsible adults

Be aware of the immature games
That can do serious harm
The games played by those
Who never matured

Destroying the health & wisdom
Of human kind and the natural world

Please.
Get to know yourself.
Properly.
Practise sane boundaries.
Clean house.
Grow up.
Mature.
As nature intended you to.
