“Alaskan” by Jacob Ausman

As the eagle flies
Through these eyes
I can see
Far across the sea
A great and proud people
Stories spoken, totem pole
There’s a warm fire
By a great glacier
Tlingkit
Gotta good ring to it
Nurturing the future
Out on an adventure
Gunalcheesh haat yee addi
Shaw wa den aay key
When our paths cross again
I will see you then
Drums and boots and dancing hands
Man I really love these lands
