Corn Grinding Song

Lyrics - Zuni

(Native American folk song – Zuni)

Eluhoma ya ya yallanne
Eluhoma ya ya yallanne yallanne
Awehlwia kwai-i
Imuna kwagia lonan-eshto wiyane
He ya ha ya he ya
Liwamani iyuteapa
Awiyane Hawilana li-itla

English Translation

My beautiful mountain
My beautiful mountain
Clouds rising
Sitting up in the sky, rain clouds coming, one after the other
He ya ha ya he ya (syllables)
Yonder flower
Young growing corn here
