Al Jazeera has done a fair story on Lakota resistance to the KXL Pipeline, one of the few major networks to cover the story from the Red Nations' perspective.  Owe Aku leadership uses the opportunity to spread the message that the pipeline will not cross Lakota land.

Dine' Sarah White 'Uncertainties remain with Navajo Mine purchase'

Uncertainties remain with Navajo Mine purchase

Lorenzo Bates stated in Tuesday’s Farmington Daily Times newspaper that he informed the community members in all six Chapters about the mine purchase. However, as I stated in this same article, only English was spoken by Mr. Bates, so how does he know if he got his message across. He only speaks English, so he can't really explain an important issue such asthe purchase of BHP mine” to the non-English speaking community members. Most of these community members are our elders. Some elders from Tiis Tsoh Sikaad Chapter complained they did not understand a word their Council Delegate talk about and they said “We don’t know what he talked about and it would have been better if he had an interpreter.”

Mohawk Nation News 'US Canada Joint Military Operations against Mohawks'



US-CANADA JOINT MILITARY OPERATIONS AGAINST MOHAWKS



MNN. Feb. 13, 2014. “Gallant Piper” is the US counterpart to Canada’s military plan to annihilate Mohawks through “Operation Campus/Scorpion-Saxon”.  “Canada declares war on Mohawks”.
Remembering Kanehsatake.
Remembering Kanehsatake, Kahnawake,Tyendinaga, Akwesasne, Six Nations ….

Mohawks as “Keepers of the Eastern Door” of the Rotino’shonni:onwe guard the fire of peace. During the American Revolutionary War, we Mohawks had to remove our women and children in 1777 to escape the coming US genocide. We stood in the way of their plans for the new Babylon. Dekanawida’s message will soon return while Onkwehonwe maintain the high moral ground while healing in the hilly country. danny phillips

The combined oligarchy have always run military maneuvers on both sides of the imaginary line. We remind our allies, friends, supporters, the general public and the world that New York State planned to attack the Iroquois and other New York State Indigenous territories in 1995-96-97 and 98. If any resistance had been encountered, New York State Governor George Pataki would have called the military that has been on standby since our reclamation of Kanienkeh in 1975. They will take try to take over our territories and removed our sovereign governments and put in place another puppet government.
lorraineOperation Gallant Piper reads as follows:
To whom it may concern,
I have in my files a document “for official use only” {classification}

Subj: WARNING ORDER-division of military and navel affairs- aid to civilian authorities
MISSION. Planning and appropriate staff coordination will commence immediately in support of anticipated militant reaction from the warrior nations. sniperThe NYARNG on order will provide a ready reaction force to support DSP anywhere within the vic. of the St. Regis Indian Reservation {Akwesasne Mohawk}, The Cattaraugus Indian Reservation {Silver Creek}, and possibly the Onondaga Indian Reservation in civil disturbance operation or as an assault force. “Whose knocking on Eastern Door”.

Execution.

C. TF 42d id will be prepared to support the dsp with civil disturbance operations any where within the vic. of the St. Regis Indian Reservation and possibly the Onondaga Indian Reservation.
Older social-political activists from Akwesasne and Kahnawake pointed to previous incidents such as the publicized plans of former New York State Governor Mario Cuomo to invade several Iroquois reservations in the 1990s, under the “Gallant Piper” military plan, to implement state law enforcement. Only twenty years ago, the use of state National Guard units to provide manpower in that operation implied a combined arms approach to dealing with Onkwehon:we populations. Others in Akwesasne recall revelations concerning the Canadian military’s plans to occupy Akwesasne through the Operation Campus / Scorpion-Saxon programs.
Two Row Times: “International law enforcement near Akwesasne”.                                         
1995- The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that Gov. Pataki has called off Gallant Piper. lasagnaGallant Piper was a military solution involving 10,000 infantry troops to “settle” the taxation issue with the Haudenosaunee. The timeframe indicates US and Canada were coordinating their plans to attack us.
In 2006 ATF, an agency that answers only to the oligarchy, were caught with the OPP helping to plan  the attack at Caledonia against the Six Nations. “ATF at Caledonia”.
US and Canada are always trying to extinguish the fire and the peace. They will never stop until we bury those weapons of war under the tree of peace for all time.
Neil Young reminds us in his song, “Cortez, the Killer”: “He came dancing across the water, with his galleons and guns, looking for the New World in that palace in the sun. Cortez, Cortez, what a killer!” Neil Young “Cortez, the Killer”.
