Winnemem Wintu Chief Caleen Sisk emphasized that the loss of salmon will result in a huge catastrophe for fish, people and the planet. “Who will turn over the rocks in the river when the salmon are gone? Who will provide the nutrients to the ecosystem? Without the salmon, there will be a major disaster,” she said.

KANSAS -- Longest Walk 4 Return to Alcatraz today, Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013. Thanks to Carl 'Bad Bear' Sampson, Western Shoshone long walker, for sharing photos via cell with Censored News! Long Walker Sharon Heta, Maori, said, "Expressions of gratefulness is extended to Dennis and Brenda Yarnall and their son Zac of Cardinal Creek Farm in Leon, Kansas in opening their home and hearts to the Longest Walk4: Return to Alcatraz and providing a dinner after walking 17 miles today. The LW4 is humbled, especially as the Yarnell family was not aware about the LW4 or that it was a spiritual walk to Alcatraz for indigenous peoples of Turtle Island and the World. As we walk in prayer for indigenous sovereignty, we come to learn that our hosts the Yarnell family of Cardinal Creek Farm are committed to building a stronger community by building connections between people while strengthening the connection with our natural world. It was a good day walking as the butterf…

Have we forgotten that we are survivors of the most monstrous and prolonged act of genocide the world has ever known?

Do we forget that for more than 100 years our children were seized from our homes, stripped of their identities, languages, cultures and dignities while being abuse…
