woops, i meant "nahasdzaanii ei biyazhi nishli" haha, my bad...
ok, so "biyazhi ei nishli' means "i am the child of.."... like when she says "nahasdzaanii ei nishli', she says " i am a child of the earth (nahasdzaan)" and then the rest of the song talks about other things related to water that she is born of.
the words are in Dine' (navajo), western dialect, and are about recognizing that she is a child of water and honors water and its qualities.
