lyrics

Like blades of grass in spring
When summer is coming on
Like snow on the side of the hill
Where the Sun is warm
Still beats the defiant heart

Makhpiya Luta. Oglala Lakota.
Spirit of the native red people:
Red Cloud, you couldn’t save your great nation
From melting like the snow on the hills
Where the sun’s rays shine
Warm

Like blades of grass in spring
When summer is coming on
Like snow on the side of the hill
Where the Sun is warm

Oh Makhpiya Luta,

Our people are like blades of grass, &
Your great nation is melting
Like snow on the side of the hill
Where the sun is warm
Melting your great culture
Diluting the great name
Your people emulate
When the sun screams through the clouds:
Die

Makhpiya Luta.
Proud Oglala Lakota.
Warrior Red Cloud
With your prophetic proclamation:
Your people are like blades of grass in spring when summer comes on
