The watchbird and the big deer

Lyrics: Dag Máhtenjárga. Charcoal drawing: Christina Fjeldavli

Mighty cooty fie ooh
eey ii yay!
mighty cooty fie ooh
eey ii yay, eey ii yay!

oh, I am the big deer
the big deer of creation
of the old Sápmi Nation

I won’t kneel down
not, on the ground
I won’t bow down
not, on the ground
oh, how I love to hear
them call my
true native name

I got a watchbird, a true bird
watchbird of creation
of the old Sápmi Nation
he won’t kneel down
not, on the ground

we are the indian red
gonna kill’em dead
he is an Indian red
gonna kill’em dead
I am an Indian red
gonna kill’em dead
oh, how we love to hear
them call us Indian red
