Indians lived way before you and me
In forests, deserts, plains, near seas
Learning to live with what was at hand
Making their clothing and homes from the land
Hear those drums, they’re beating loud
“First Americans and so proud” (repeat)
Iroquois lived in the Eastern Woods...
Cheyenne planted corn on the Plains...
Navaho in the Desert Southwest...
We can learn much from the Indian way...
First Americans and so proud
and so proud…and so proud
