Adahy, let's practice the ritual dancing great grandpa Ashkii has been teaching us. The dance his great great grandpa taught him when he was seven years old.
No, Aiyana. We cannot keep dancing and singing anymore. You know what will happen if we get caught. Please just wait until the day is over and we head back home.
All I wanted to do was to practice my traditions. I understand I will leave now.
What are you useless Indians doing?!! You are going to pay for dancing and singing on my land instead of growing my precious crops. Leave now! You will return tomorrow before sunrise and be here until those filthy hands cannot handle it anymore.
Why can't we practice our own beliefs? I don't understand. What did we ever do? We should all be treated equally.
Let's just head home and wait for grandpa Ashkii for our daily ritual practices and story telling.
Let's get some rest Adahy. We will leave soon with grandpa Ashkii and the others to learn more about the singing, dancing, tending plants, and basket weaving.
Hurry children we do not have much time. Every night before the sun goes down is the opportunity to teach you all about who we are and where we come from.
Now remember my children with singing, dancing, and story telling we will maintain our culture, society, and power alive. We shall never forget our roots. Stay strong through these hard times as one day we will live peacefully.
