Sakej Ward, "Here is the first part of Mi'kmaq Solidarity Tour in Cheam First Nation. There was three speakers Susan Patles, Coady Stevens and myself. I provided a basic explanation of Indigenous warriors and warrior societies. which led up to Susan and Coady speaking about their experience in protecting Mi'kma'ki (Mi'kmaq Homeland) from fracking operations. They did a great job capturing the attention of the audience and explaining the problem of confronting a corporate state. I believe their part of the presentation will be posted soon."

Sakej states that warriors have a sacred responsibility to manage the land and that nature is taken care of, but when there is a threat that will impact everything around you somebody needs to stand up, and it is the responsibility of these warriors to take action.
