Blue horses on a red mile, Ortiz and Tapahonso

Blue horses on a red mile, Ortiz and Tapahonso

Searching through my files, a stellar glimmer of the past appears, the beauty and clarity of the poetry of Simon Ortiz and Luci Tapahonso. Written in October of 2005, I share it because of the breathtaking beauty of their poetry and power of their words.

There are some things that are irreplaceable, like water; and some things that cannot be changed, such as time. But when it comes to transmuting the land and air, scents and sounds of their homelands into verse, Simon Ortiz, Acoma Pueblo, and Luci Tapahonso, Navajo, are master alchemists.

Their sense of place, rooted in their homelands of Acoma Pueblo and the Navajo Nation, are tasted, felt and breathed. Ortiz and Tapahonso have cheated time and place, in their ability to transport readers by verse.

Mohawk Nation News 'Divide and Conquer at Six Nation's with audio



 Mohawk Nation News

MNN. 1 MAY 2021. Canadian government spokesperson Mark Hill stated there are “competing factions” at osweken/Six Nations over the encroachment of 1492 Land Back Lane. As a band council chief he works for our enemies to carry out the genocide of those of us who are with the two row and the kaianerekowa/great peace. Our enemies, his bosses, the squatter immigrants, are trying to make a claim to turtle island, which we can never give up, sell or convey. In a power play Hill does not want to undermine Canada’s lack of influence on onkwehonweh people. Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chief’s Council has no authority over the people as they are operating according to foreign Christian ideology, the kariwiio [Handsome  Lake] which is contradictory to nature. The kaianerekowa and the two row are nature’s path.

The Intercept: Your car is spying on you -- New technology allows cell data to be stored and extracted

By Brenda Norrell

New technology allows all of your data from your cell phone to be extracted from a smart car's computer, from both personal cars and rental cars, The Intercept reveals.

That includes your contact list, messages, e-mails and locations. When you connect to the car's USB charger, it extracts your phone's data and stores it in the car's computer. It can be retrieved by law enforcement.

US Customs and Border Patrol used the technology.

In one rental car, the phone messages of more than 70 car renters could be read. The car renters had connected their phone to the USB charger.

It is warrantless spying.

MNN. May 2, 2021. The following is in effect an eviction notice from a kentiiatehkwennio, a woman who is as one with the earth. Every woman has the duty to protect our mother,  onowarekeh. The land across from the Montreal Forum belongs to the indigenous people, as does all the land of turtle island from ocean to ocean and pole to pole. This meeting place in the center of tiani tiotiakon, of kanienkehaka. is for all our allies. The kanienkehaka have always been the protectors of the ‘eastern door’ of turtle island. Any of our family may come here to council with us and with each other. No one can remove us or our land and allies.
