Celebrate The Joy Of Water: Water Is Life


by Andrew Ciccone September 11, 2019

Water Is Life (Mni Wičoni)

This song is inspired by and in tribute to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all the tribes, nations, native and non-native people coming together to protect the land and water threatened by the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline

The song was inspired by a meadowlark at Standing Rock, "Be a lark from the meadow. Be a lark from this meadow," the bird sang. We all have a right to water and we too can sing in the new day.

LYRICS: Water Is Life - Mni Wičoni

All my relations, come
Every nation, come
All my relations under the sun
We are one 

We are praying, come
We are praying, come
We are the song and we are the drum
We are one 

We are the river, come
We are the river, come
We are the boat, the paddle, the shore
We are one 

Chorus:

Mni wičoni, sing (Mitakuye Oyasin…)
Mni wičoni, sing 
Mni wičoni, “water is life”
for everything 

We are the water, sing
We are the water, sing
We are the water
We are where all life begins 

We are the ancient ones
We are the ancient ones
In your breath and bones we sing on
We are one 

We are the meadow, come
We are the meadow, come
We are the lark that sings
the new day has begun 

We are the new day, run, run, run
We are the new day, run, run, run
We are the old and we are the young
We are one

Chorus:

We are the earth and sky
We are the thunder cries
We are the fire,
We are the light in your eyes 

We are standing strong
Like a rock, like a stone
On this sacred ground we belong
We are home

Chorus:

All my relations, come
Every nation, come
All my relations under the sun
We are one

ABOUT THE CHORUS

Mni wičoni (mini we-cho-nee) —“Water is life.”

Mitakuye Oyasin (mee-dah-koo-yeh o-yah-seen)—“All My Relations”

The Earth herself, Maka Unci, is our relation, and so is the sky, Grandfather Sky, and so is the Buffalo and so are each of the two-leggeds, the four-leggeds, those that swim, those that fly, the root nation and the crawling beings who share the world with us. Mitakuye Oyasin refers to the interconnectedness of all beings and all things. We are all interconnected. We are all One.
