Scroll down for Longest Walk 1978 videos!
I heard the Longest Walk  4 is in St. Louis today. It brought back some memories! The Longest Walk camped right there by the arch back in 1978. I remember laying there in the grass under the arch and looking up at it. Didn't think I would remember that but what else do 10-year-olds remember! This reminds to tell everyone to not let the chance to walk with the walkers pass you by -- there is so much knowledge that can be learned. No amount of money can buy that. Things are going to change drastically and get very hard for all people these next 40 years. All the knowledge and wisdom that came from the walk in 1978 has carried us these past 35 years , we need to continue that for whats coming next.
Thank you Terri and April for sharing with Censored News!

Mohawk Nation News 'Bouncing Check NSF'

BOUNCING CHECK NSFPosted on August 30, 2013 Mohawk Nation News
MNN. Aug. 2, 2013.When disaster strikes, the first thing to do is to get up out of your chair. Indigenous population is growing at a fast rate, by 50% between 1996 and 2006. The Metis by 33%. Are they “Metis Inc.” or our traditional Indigenous relatives? Incorporated Injuns cannot sign away land and resources to multinational corporate bankers. Some of our youth get caught in the colonial loser’s game of quick easy money to do their dirty work.  Tribal and band councils inc. and national organizations like AFN Inc. drive the colonial covered wagon and let the horses try to pull us over the cliff. They help create the social destitution that forces us to take handouts of our own money.

Alex Mensing reports from the Zapatistas Little School at Narco News Bulletin, Aug. 29, 2013
Excerpts: "Another presentation was dedicated to the importance of their own communication media. They have two community radios in each of the five territories, a presenter explained, which allow them to distribute their 'voice, word and work' of everyone equally. When the government tries to trick them or sends paramilitaries, the presenter pointed out, their cameras and radios allow them to record what is going on and announce what is going on.  "Other key lessons emerged in that first class: fre…

ST LOUIS -- Native Americans walking across America on the five-month Longest Walk 4 Return to Alcatraz arrived in St Louis late today and received a surprise message from longtime imprisoned Native American activist Leonard Peltier. Peltier told the walkers, "In our stories among my people, we say that at times like this, an eagle or a hawk will visit, to see what you are doing. We as Native people know that not only are they visiting to see what you are doing, but they have been sent to collect the thoughts and prayers of the people, to carry them back to the Creator." The long walkers include two Native American young adults walking across America for the third time. Lisa Peake, Anishinabe/Pomo, and Carl 'Bad Bear' Sampson, Western Shoshone, walked across America o…

Greetings! 
I want to take some time to thank each and every one of you for committing to do this walk and to carry prayers for me.

I know it can be a hardship so please know that I appreciate you remembering  and doing this for me. I only ask that you keep clear minds and good thoughts as you continue this journey.

At one time, we as humans, were able to communicate directly with all living thin…

Proroguing is a fundamental abuse of power.“When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled”. [Monty Python]. We Indigenous have always been in the way. Hence the holocaust of 150 million of us with bullets and disease!
