Children of Anahuac:

we carry the medicine inside.

We hear Mother Earth now.

We have removed the wasichu lies.

Labels can’t define us,

through our blood to this land we are tied.

Tierra sagrada:

maiz, mesquite, nopal give us life.

Their walls can’t confine us.

Millennial caminos will survive.

Wasichu can’t blind us.

We’ve had enough of suffering and lies.

We remember our place here.

All that was taken has come back to life.

Children of Anahuac:

we carry the medicine inside.



Tonantzin tlalli,

atl ne tlayoli,

ka’nochi nonemilis.

(From my heart I sing

thank you,

Mother Earth,

water is life,

all my relations.)

Nahuatl Huasteco
