"Ki Tynrai" da @speakyourroots



Ki Tynrai


Ki tynrai jong ngi kin khlaiñ.

Ki tynrai ka dohnud.

Ki tynrai ka saiń pyrkhat.


Ki tynrai jong ngi kin ïeng shisha.

Ki tynrai ka jingïohi.

Ki tynrai ka jingkren.


Ki tynrai jong ngi kin neh pateng.

Ki tynrai kiba ngi klah.

Ki tynrai sha ba ngi ïaid.


Ki tynrai kin nym ieh ïa ngi satia.

Ngin kynmaw junom ïa

ka nylla ksiar

ka kyrteng jong ngi

ka ktien jong ngi

ka shap kyrpang jong ngi.


Ngin bat da kaba

sngew sarong bad ka burom

ïa kata kaba dei jong ngi

ïa kata kaba long na ngi.




May our roots be strong.

The roots of our heart.

The roots of our mind.


May our roots be true.

The roots of what we see.

The roots of what we say.


May our roots endure.

The roots of what we touch.

The roots of where we walk.


May the roots of who we are

never leave us.

May we always remember

the beauty of

our name,

our language,

our identity.


May we hold with

pride and dignity

that which is ours,

that which belongs to us.



Ki tynrai ki lah ban don bun jait ki jingmut ïa ngi katba ngi im. Ki kylla bad ki san katba ngi nang kylla nang san. Ha kata ka jingïaid lynti, ai ba ngin ïoh ka jingstad jingshemphang, ka bor bad ka jingshlur ban long kiba ngi dei ban long. ✨🌲 Roots may have different meanings for us as we go through life. They change and grow as we change and grow. In that journey, may there be wisdom, strength and courage to be who we are. ✨🌲 🟡 English translation by @speakyourroots
