Here's a basic, reasonable white-man's view of the history that I grabbed off the net: http://www.desertusa.com/mag03/trails...

Long Walk
Chucki Begay and Mother Earth Blues Band

This is what the Elders say This is a true story
It happened back in 1864
The Bluecoats came from the East and all hell broke loose
A man named Carson waved his hand and the killing began
Women and children layin everywhere I looked
They burned our fields and they burned our hogans to the ground
So many died in a cold dark cloud
Bullets flyin all around but I got away
The Bluecoats chasin me every day

Chorus:
Every time I think about it, it makes me cry
Yes, Im talkin bout the Long Walk
Every time I think about it, it makes me cry
Yes, Im talkin bout the Long Long Walk
Always makes me cry
Long Walk
Brings a tear to my eye Long Walk
Always, always brings me downLong Walk
Yes, Im talkin bout The Long Walk

400 miles of ice and snow
They made my people walk in the dark cold
Many froze on that cold dark night
More than 3000 people lost their souls

Chorus:
Every time I think about it, it makes me cry
Yes, Im talkin bout the Long Walk
Every time I think about it, it makes me cry
Yes, Im talkin bout the Long Long Walk
Always makes me cry Long Walk
Brings a tear to my eye Long Walk
Always, always brings me downLong Walk
Yes, ImIm talkin bout The Long Walk

[Prayer song that the people wrote after being released
from the concentration camp in Ft. Sumner: Hweeldi]
