“Colours of the Wind”

Pocahontas, who is the speaker of the song, points out the human condition that discriminating against themselves and others. There are a man from Europe and Pocahontas who is a native of the land. There are beautiful nature, animals and a village in the land. The man thought those things were uncivilized. Also, he did not even try to understand them. Pocahontas tells him a lot of things by the song. In the music video, Pocahontas restrained the man from trying to cut tree down, and sang “If you cut it down, then you’ll never know.” It means if we judge someone by appearances, we will never know someone’s true self. Pocahontas also said, “You think you ownwhatever 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.” Humans are not an owner of the earth. We have to coexist with nature. If we do not accept nature as a family member of the earth, we will only ruin the earth. There are various kinds of organisms and compositions in the world, and humans are actually one of the most discriminative organisms. It can be hard to understand and accept the things that are different from you, but by doing so, we are achieving society and the world. This song shows us the way to be happy is understanding and accepting each other
