They taught me to be strong
They taught me to be courageous
They taught me to never give up.

We, women of this tribe
we must be mothers
we must be sisters
we must be wives.

We must support our men strongly
in time of battles and wars,
We are sending them to the battlefield,
but they are returning to our arms again.

We are there in their good times,
we never go away in their bad times.
We, women of this tribe
we must stand firm.

They taught me to be strong,
they taught me good.
For I feel no fear.
My destiny will be fulfilled.
