AMERIKUA Official Music Video by ALOKA

Published on July 25, 2017

AMERIKUA is a pre-columbian Mayan word for the unified north and south continent of the Americas, "The place of the four winds". This word existed long before Colombus and is calling to be re-seeded into collective consciousness. This song & video is a prayer dedicated to the unification of all tribes; to all who are working hard to protect the environment, indigenous peoples, human rights, sacred sites and mend divisiveness.

There are 1,000 standing rocks in the Americas, and a global movement to re-integrate indigenous wisdom into the world is underway. This is call to action, for unity, peace and harmony amongst all nations. This is a dedication to the prophecies transmitted across many cultures and the healing of the nations taking place in our lifetime, as we bridge the divide between the tone of our skin, the trauma of our lineages and awaken to the tone of our soul frequency as guardians & stewards of the mother earth. You are invited to be a part of these prophecies. We have one home. We are all related. May we walk in harmony.

Water is life.

Protect the Sacred.

For all our relations,

AMERIKUA es una palabra precolombina maya para el continente norte y sur unificado de las Américas, "El lugar de los cuatro vientos". Esta palabra existía mucho antes que Colón y está llamando a ser re-sembrada en la conciencia colectiva. Esta canción y video es una oración dedicada a la unificación de todas las tribus; A todos los que trabajan duro para proteger el medio ambiente, los pueblos indígenas, los derechos humanos, los lugares sagrados y reparar la división.

Hay 1.000 rocas en pie en las Américas, y un movimiento global para reintegrar la sabiduría indígena en el mundo está en marcha. Este es el llamado a la acción, por la unidad, la paz y la armonía entre todas las naciones. Esta es una dedicación a las profecías transmitidas a través de muchas culturas y la curación de las naciones que tienen lugar en nuestra vida, a medida que unimos la división entre el tono de nuestra piel, el trauma de nuestros linajes y despertar al tono de nuestra alma frecuencia como Guardianes y mayordomos de la madre tierra. Ustedes están invitados a ser parte de estas profecías. Tenemos una casa. Todos estamos relacionados. Que caminemos en armonía.

Then Grace flows through you.

Note:  The inspiration for this poem first came to me yesterday.  I have rewritten it 3 times and this is the end result.  It is written in the 5-7-5 Haiku form of poetry.  A style that I enjoy.

I have published this poem for the first time on my blog today, the 9th of August, 2017.
