Mohawk Nation News 'Birth and Death'




BIRTH and DEATH


MNN. AUG. 31, 2013. Detroit’s funeral directors were informed that the City “can’t process birth and death certificates because they have no paper and don’t have money to buy any.” After the July 18, 2013 bankruptcy the creditors want cash! Dying is easy. Proving you’re dead is getting impossible! Cities are corporations. Bankers are 51% of the shareholders. Their authorization is needed on almost everything. Soon all licenses, certificate and documents will be unavailable if they can’t get the paper or the mark of the beast. Families can’t access bank accounts, file insurance claims or get court document, and so on.

The Onondaga woman who kept our records of Haudenosaunee passport recipients kept the paperwork in a shoe box under her bed. She knew each person and their family. She’s died since. 
The settlers don’t know each other. Recently the morgue told funeral directors that bodies would not be released without proper documents and only on weekdays. The Mohawk Nation News editor ran into the opposite problem. A death certificate was put on her Equifax credit file. She could not borrow money or do business or prove she was alive. Only her people could make an exception by vouching for her. who am i
Everyone fears for their pensions. Liens have been put against the city’s debts. Nothing can leave. Bank accounts are frozen. 100 US cities are on the verge of bankruptcies. 
The settlers reneged on the Great Law and the Two Row Wampum where everyone is equal and has a voice. Their violation is leading to chaos and then to revolution against this system of debts.  
"Achtung! Soon we will give everybody a number".
“Achtung! No more names. Soon we will give everybody numbers tattooed under their arms”.
We Indigenous have to stay out of it. The “Iotikstenha”, Women who care for the people, have the job of listing who are members of our nations and instructing them to follow the Great Law.

Brilliant report and assessment. Also sad and disturbing if not all surprising. You might recall that after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, some nations like Thailand and Malaysia were remarkably prompt at providing lists and beginning the task of locating survivors and reporting the names of those who had perished. Nothing nearly so responsive or respectful after 9-11, when the death toll was still being reported at nearly 6000 three months after the event. Or during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when relocated persons could not locate loved ones for weeks, even as real estate speculators were contacting them by cell phone within days with offers to buy up their New Orleans properties. What a culture, or excuse for lack thereof.
