Aboriginal Family Line

Poetry Corner

Our people, searching through old records, to see if they could find A little bit of information about their aboriginal family line

Finding old pictures of loved ones of long ago, Memories of yesterday, their hearts become aglow

Secrets of their past, kept hidden in a drawer Changing of their names, that has caused them so much sorrow

Not knowing their culture, or their way of life

that was left behind 'cause they were never told about their aboriginal Family line.

The spirits of our elders are with us strong today As we search to regain our culture and our name of yesterday.
