SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Over 3000 people are expected to gather in Sacramento on Saturday March 15 to join California Indian Nations and send a clear message to Governor Brown and his administration that Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, practices/efforts need to end in California.
“We are the ancestors of the future and it is our responsibility to be the care takers of the earth, as was given to us in our original teachings by our ancestors. We must not allow the continuous devastation and degradation of our Mother, Earth. We must be the voices for our children and our grandchildren. Fracking must stop by any means necessary,” states Corrina Gould, Elder, Chochenyo/Karkin Ohlone.

Mohawk John Kane "Sovereignty is not our Defense. It's what we Defend!"

"Sovereignty is not our Defense. It's what we Defend!"

By John Karhiio Kane, Mohawk


On my "Let's Talk Native..." radio show on Sunday, March 9, I announced my new campaign. No, I am not running for office. My campaign is about truth telling and clearing away false assumptions about what the United States and Canada believe they have reduced us to — namely, their subjects.
In spite of the lop-sided "deals" and, more often than not, fraudulent acts committed by Europeans and their descendants to gain access to the lands of our children, the characterization that we are dependent on them is false. The very existence of the U.S. and Canada depends on their claim to a land base. The fact of the matter is that they are completely dependent on lands that we allowed them to occupy — but that occupation was and is conditional. And neither of these "colonies" has been released from the debt of those conditions.
