PAST TENTS OR TI PI’S
Why must our history be so stark?
Our hero’s were killed, imprisoned or defamed.
Our memories filled with horrific events of betrayal and death.
Our oral histories reflect a time of great horror with no resolution or hope.
So compelling, memories of sadness, the joyous times of pre-conquest are forever lost to time.
The very essence of our spirituality has become fodder for Madison Avenue.
We’ve become a novelty in a land we once roamed free.
Is this our last stand?
