From ORIGINAL FREE NATIONS, Cutting Edge Research For Indigenous Peoples’s Liberation
Original Nations Anthem is dedicated to Standing Rock and their supporters, as well as our ancestors and “All Our Relations” and is a tribute to the Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires of the Great Sioux Nation). It is intended as poignant opposition to the domination and dehumanization that has been happening to our Nations for more than 500 years as a result of the doctrine of Christian discovery, and as opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline. My wife Paige wanted me inform people about the meaning of the “hidden code words” mentioned in the film. They are Latin from a 1493 Vatican papal bull. The words are part of a longer phrase: “sub actuali dominio temporali aliquorum dominorum Christianorum constitute non essent.” They refer to lands “not constituted under the domination of any Christian dominators.”

We’re Pre-American Nations
Standing with Standing Rock
Our relations
Entirely free originally
Forever that way we shall rightfully be
Rejecting claim discovery

The colonizer’s claim to discover our nations
They brought us death, destruction and lamentations
sub actuali dominio temporali aliquorum dominorum
Hidden code words, don’t ignore ’em

Beautiful Standing Rock, Sacred Locations
Dapple has bulldozed, willful desecrations
Christendom claimed to possess our lives
We all know that’s nothing but lies
With a colonial design to dehumanize

imperii Christiani propagationem
They did rituals on our shores, then claimed to own ’em
You can’t discover another nations home
With supposed permission from a Pope in Rome

Then rightfully impose a capitol dome
Kings, queens, potentates
Bearing symbols of church and state
Claim the right to dominate
Their ancestor sailed under color of god
Divine right to take that was nothing but fraud

We’re sustained by our spirituality
And our abiding reality
So they’ve tried to destroy our sacred places
Yet we’ve held tight
They’re never going to erase us

From this blue orb of day and night
With living waters and sunlight
We pray for all the elements of Life

We’re the Pre-American Nations
Standing with Standing Rock
Our relations
Entirely free originally
Forever that way we shall rightfully be
Rejecting their claim superiority
Mni Wiconi
We know water is life for everyone
