He ya ho, He ya ho, Ya ya ya

Translation - We n' de ya ho
Freely translated: "A we n'" (I am), "de" (of), "Yauh" --the-- (Great Spirit), "Ho" (it is so).
Written as: A we n' de Yauh ho (I am of the Great Spirit, Ho!).
This language stems from very ancient Cherokee

Morning Song | Reviewer: Dom-Reyes | 7/16/13

This song gives me a spiritual connection full of love to all living things. I am grateful for all that surrounds me. We are all connected as one. Our ancestors will never be forgotten and no matter what tribe you're decedent from we should all love and respect each other as a family because we are all ONE created by Yauh.. Ya, the Great spirit. We are all blood.

I have the song. It is my favorite. There are two names to the song that I know of. I call it North Wind. I used to teach the Cherokee Cultural Language, arts and history. Its been a while. I have been told the Cherokee are of Lost Tribe of the Israelites! The Tribe of Benjamin!! A Great Honor!

my 5 month old son loves this song | Reviewer: denise | 8/11/12

i started playing it for him when he was only 2 weeks old. my 6 and 5 year old has learn the word. i have always loved this song.i think everyone should listen to mother earth and live life with her in mind. | Reviewer: Brahmananda | 6/6/11

Is it interesting that "Yauh" or "Ya" is "Great Spirit in this Cherokee, while "Yah" refers to the Almighty God in Hebrew? I think we all stemmed from the same place.

I have Native American blood (Apache), but I currently live in the NE of India. I am still amazed when I see tribal people here wear clothing that I know my ancestors and brothers form other tribes to have worn. At some point, I believe the world was One - like Our Father, the Great Spirit, the Lord.

Review from Wales, Great Britain | Reviewer: Pamela Brooks | 8/28/09

Beautiful words, which can be sung or chanted regardless of faith, creed or religion -the words are relevent to all. We shall sing it this September when our group of adults with additional learning needs meet again for Music and Drama sessions.

i heard this song when i clik to check on to study the culture of the Native Americans as m from a tribal Naga, its a very nice song we should encourage to research our(every tribals) folk song which are almost fading.

It's amazing. | Reviewer: Taylor | 12/19/08

I love this song. It's a good way for me to hear the way my anscestors talked and such. I can learn about their culture better. I'm not sure what part Cherokee I am, but I'm determined to learn the culture anyway. Even as young as I am. :)
