    Hi there, I have some lyrics to this song that I sourced from this youtube video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3c-iaEQ1W4&ab_channel=karonhienhawe1 Lyrics- Shonkwaia'tison tahiahtenniehte o:nen ieiohe ahsaton:rie nia:wen, nia:wen tsi sonhnhe owira:'a tsi nen:we enkonnoronhkhwake. Sataterihwakwenienhstak iohahi:io sathahita serihwakweniehsta iethinistenha ohontsa io haio ho hawe haio io haio hawe haio weia io haio ho we ..io haio ho hawi hawine Tsi Nen:we Enkonnoronhkhwake I was wondering if there is a source of the English translation of this song? I am working towards a paper to gather some literary distinctions between western and indigenous languages.
