What does Ma mean when she said “why, we’re the people, we go on” in the grapes of wrath?

She means that we, the Joads, are the essence of life on the earth, the ones who embody life and persistence. She will not accept defeat but will keep on fighting and trying no matter what because that is who the family is. It is a heroic, life-affirming declaration..
