My Ancestors Cried

We went from creating art for survival,

to selling our art and culture to survive

sold and bought by the colonizers at a museums, art galleries.

 

While some of my people eat cheese and wine,

we get bought and sold creating genocide


Our Ancestors said art is done by the people

for the people not for rich colonizers

 

But we lost our way our culture, our art, our self

now we chasing the mighty dollar or some crumbs

to stay alive

 

I hear my Ancestors cry

We went from creating art for survival,

to selling our art and culture to survive

 

Exposed in museums our people can be found

but WE don't have the funds or time to appreciate our

people and Art

 

In Museums you can find what they did not destroy or burn

the Herstory of our people....

The Herstory of our people must be told and not by Docents at museums

But by Nuestra Gente, Curanderos, Danzantes, el pueblo.
