Transcript of Transcendentalism Project: Colors of the Wind.

Colors of the Wind Hannah Simon Can you paint with all the colors of the wind? "You can own the Earth and still all
you'll own is Earth until you can paint
with all the colors of the wind." lyrics "Come roll in all the riches all around you, and for once never wonder what they're worth."
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the Earth and still
All you'll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth This quote explains that you can live on Earth, but you'll never fully live unless you're free from society. This represents the transcendentalist idea of the beauty of nature and the simplifying life. Pocahontas tells John Smith to love nature and not to worry about the materialistic values of money. The beauty of nature is the only material needed. For whether we are white or copper skinned, we need to sing with all the voices of the mountain..." This quote expresses the respect for all human beings, and that they need to unite and just enjoy the beauty that Earth has to offer. Why I chose this song: I chose this song because I feel it fits the theme of transcendentalism perfectly, I'm also a fan of Disney. This song teaches the basis of transcendentalism: the beauty of nature, respect for all humans, individual expression, non-conformity, and simplifying life.
