Mescalero Apache Song of the Gotal Ceremony

The black turkey gobbler, under the east, the middle of his trail; toward us
it is about to dawn.
The black gurkey gobbler, the tips of his beautiful tail;
above us the dawn whitens.
The black turkey gobbler, the tips of his beautiful tail;
above us the dawn becomes yellow.
The sunbeams stream forward, dawn boys,
with shimmering shoes of yellow.
On top of the sunbeams that stream toward us
they are dancing.
At the east the rainbow moves forward, dawn maidens,
with shimmering shoes and shirts of yellow dance over us.
Beautifully over us it is dawning.
Above us among the mountains the herbs are becoming green.
Above us on the top of the mountains the herbs are becoming yellow.
Above us among the mountains,
with shoes of yellow I go around the fruits and the herbs that shimmer.
Above us among the mountains,
the shimmering fruits with shoes and shirts of yellow are bent toward him.
On the beautiful mountains above it is daylight.
