I am an Indian woman by Dana Lone Hill

I am an Indian woman by Dana Lone Hill

I am an Indian woman
who stands tall and proud
as short as I am

I am an Indian woman
strong and loud
as quiet as I seem

I am an Indian woman
you do not mess with
because you don’t know

I am an Indian woman
wild and restless
in her own land

I am an Indian woman
respectful but mistreated
one too many times

I am an Indian woman
whose never been defeated
so many times

I am an Indian woman
who learned from her grandmother
how to be.

I am an Indian woman
and there is no other
kind of woman I would ‘wannabe.’
