This video talks about my struggles and the struggles of many people throughout the world - battling themselves, their friends, their enemies, the system in general. It pushes the political envelope of what I see through my eyes.
This is the Spiritual Battle fought everyday. Not only on my Indian (Native American) Reservation but throughout the world. The battle that Women face on a daily - to be recognized, to have a voice, to fight for equality. To stand on their own two feet all while raising their children, having a full-time job and getting an education. It talks of the battle seen of substance abuse which leaves many mothers to raise their families alone. The video captures this story.

I'm gonna sit here and take this time, To write down my troubles and relieve my mind, I know many of you feel like me, Wondering what happened to freedom of speech, Living in a World dominated by Men, Indian Women living in a world of oppression, Sometimes it feels like a 3rd World Country, Starving for freedom, food for the hungry, Our soldiers overseas fighting the war, We got a war here America, look out your back door, I know when this song hits the fans, I'll probably get banned, denied by the man.
Chorus: And we Rise, Rise, Rise, And we Rise, Rise, Rise
As I sit here thinking of all my soldiers, my Indian women we're the new tribal warriors, Children in one arm, in the other got a job and education, On our backs, we carry the Indian Nation, I look at my life, I had strong Indian women, I know I wouldn't be here, if it wasn't for them, I stand tall, and I won't back down, From no man or no fight, I'll stand my ground, Paint my face and give me a bow, For my people, I will give my soul, It don't matter to me if I stand alone, In the end, the truth will be shown, You'll see it in my eyes, I never lie, I'll stay true to myself till the day I die, You know that I know you're hearing me, Every single day, you show you're fear of me.
Chorus: And We Rise, Rise, Rise. And We Rise, Rise, Rise.
My children, take a good look around, Don't let anybody put you down, This world is full of jealousy and hate, Know the real and be wary of the fake, Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, Just know in your circle there's always a poser, The system is corrupt people passing judgement, The sad thing it's the same passing punishment, If you're different and got a mind of your own, You ain't a puppet or a mind to control, They'll do whatever, make you an outcast, Lie about you and put your life on blast, I'm living proof take a good look at me, The Pueblo Revolt of 2018, My Native Warriors, it's time for a change, Take a stand in your future Engage.
Chorus: And we Rise, Rise, Rise. And We Rise, Rise, Rise.
