Mis antepasados give me wisdom that I carry dear to my heart and ready to use as armor to
defend my loved ones, la tierra y el agua.
Mis antepasados give me courage to be able to face those who stand against everything I believe
that deserves to be respected and protected.
Mis antepasados give me life that I live with the purpose to give justice to the lives that were
taken early from them and fight for the ones beside us.
To allow myself to rest is to return calmness to their unresting souls.
To allow myself to love is to be grateful for the tender heart they have given to me.
To allow myself to heal from my traumas is to allow them to release their hurt.
I am my ancestors and my ancestors are me.
Yo soy mis antepasados y mis antepasados son yo.
Those before me and those after me will continue to carry everything we have felt and carried
Be the ancestor to break the lineage of our pain and connect our paths towards liberation.
