O Hal’lwe


Yu no he yu ne la (repeat 3 times)
O hal-‘lwe (repeat 5 times)
He yo he!

Translation – Strong Oak Tree

The specific meaning of these lyrics has been lost, but the Nanticoke remember it compares the role of women to the strong oak tree that brings forth new life and provides shelter as each generation grows up. (source)
