Think Nothing of it: Solomon Ratt (th-dialect)

ikosi mâka, kâwitha nânitaw itîthihta:
misawâc kiwâpimitinân acâhkosihk ohci,
kiwîcisimômitinân wâwâhtihk;
kitâcimowstâtinân ispî kâ-thôtihk,
kinikamostâtinân pimiciwanihk,
kiwîcîwitinân ispî kâ-pimohtîyan askîhk.

ᐃᑯᓯ ᒫᑲ, ᑳᐏᖬ ᓈᓂᑕᐤ ᐃᑏᖨᐦᑕ:
ᒥᓴᐚᐨ ᑭᐚᐱᒥᑎᓈᐣ ᐊᒑᐦᑯᓯᕽ ᐅᐦᒋ,
ᑭᐑᒋᓯᒨᒥᑎᓈᐣ ᐚᐚᐦᑎᕽ;
ᑭᑖᒋᒧᐢᑖᑎᓈᐣ ᐃᐢᐲ ᑳ ᖫᑎᕽ,
ᑭᓂᑲᒧᐢᑖᑎᓈᐣ ᐱᒥᒋᐘᓂᕽ,
ᑭᐑᒌᐏᑎᓈᐣ ᐃᐢᐲ ᑳ ᐱᒧᐦᑏᔭᐣ ᐊᐢᑮᕽ᙮

That’s it then, think nothing of it:
In any case we see you from the stars,
We dance with you in the northern lights;
We tell you stories when the wind blows,
Sing to you from the flowing waters,
And accompany you when you walk on the Earth.
