"We are who we are." It is a Bavarian saying.

In German, to say "We are we" you say "Wir sind wir". In southern German dialects like Swabian or Bavarian, "wir" becomes "mir". In Bavarian the "r" almost disappears and becomes "a".

In Bavarian dialect, the "sind" becomes "san".

So you get "mia san mia" instead of "mir sind mir" instead of "wir sind wir," literally "we are we," but meaning "we are who we are," an expression of regional pride.
