MNN. 13 May 2015. Red-X, the timeless, far-seeing, many dimensional, worldly ongwe’hon:weh gave an exclusive message to MNN. Before boarding his silver eagle to return to his cave high in the mountain where the sun never sets, he said, “When I leave, the gariwiio pimple will burst! Our great mother will provide no ongwe’hon:weh herbs to save it. Allan McNaughton was deposed in 1966. He always sat  illegally as a passive chief. Captain Aaron Detlor brought in an arsenal of sharp objects to keep Allen  in line.
Aaron, do you have to do it in the longhouse?
Aaron, do you have to do it in the longhouse?
“Those guilty of purposely violating the Great Law will throw themselves into the abys never to be seen again by the ongwe’hon:weh. The tree of peace will stand strong again. Our visitors from other lands will fall on the ground and crawl on board their leaky ships and shaky birds, to be washed away never to be seen again by the ongwe’hon:weh.
Red-X advises, “Follow our true teacher, not false prophets like Skaniatariio and Captain Brant.
“Brant [1743–1807], a prominent Free Mason, was expelled completely from the Confederacy for treasonously selling our land and other malfeasance. Detlor also revealed himself  and no one will give him shelter. He will flee while the going is good. But the Great Law will pursue him forever.
Aaron, you can run, disguise yourself, but the Great Law will find you!
Aaron, you can run, disguise yourself, but the Great Law will find you!

“The white serpent of Free Masonry has always slithered invisibly beneath society, coiled up under our benches waiting to strike. Those who joined need to speak about their affiliation. The Great Peace longhouses have a duty to help reinstate the kaia’nereh:kowa, the true natural law of Ono’ware:geh, Great Turtle Island.
“Dekanawida brought us three things: the good message, which is here on earth; all living things have the same mother and the power to unite our minds; and to create the Peace.
“The instigators need a pretext to bring in the military to commit a treasonous act” just like in Onondaga in 1997. Red-X instructed, “Detlor and his cohorts should be challenged in an open council, using the perimeters of the natural law.
I'll believe anything! We're covering the wrath of the clan mothers & elders!
I’ll believe anything! We’re covering the wrath of the clan mothers & elders!
Red-X reminded us, “When they are ready, they may burn tobacco and call all our communities to come to one mind.” Finally he said, “The sun never sets on the Great Peace. The Eagle on top of the tree will always have a keen eye to see afar.” Then he boarded his silver eagle. Before flying off, Red-X said, “When you need news, who are you gonna call?”  He heads off with the Fifth Dimension singing, “When the moon is in the 7th house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then peace will guide the planet, and love will steer the stars. This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius.

Environmental groups and Tribes rally for rivers at Capitol

On May 11, Gary Mulcahy of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe responded to Jerry Brown's comment during a speech in Sacramento that opponents of the twin tunnels should "Shut Up" unless they had spent a "million hours" on the project like the administration's staff had.

"The Winnemem Wintu and California Indians have been on these rivers for over 6,000 years, praying for the water and praying for the salmon streams and fisheries all this time," said Mulcahy at a noon program at California Rivers Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento on Monday.  "We know our rivers and salmon and what they need. So Tunnel Vision Brown, until you have been on the rivers for over 6,000 years, Shut Up." 

The Tribe has been fighting for years to stop a federal plan to raise Shasta Dam, a project that would inundate many of the Winnemen Wintu's remaining sacred sites, and to restore the original run of winter run Chinook salmon, now thriving in New Zealand, to the McCloud River above Lake Shasta.

California Rivers Day 2015 brought together 23 river groups from throughout the state and two Indian Tribes to speak up for rivers and call on state leaders to support "sustainable drought solutions" at noon at the West Steps of the State Capitol in Sacramento.
The noon program that Mulcahy spoke at was preceded by a "Paddle to the Capitol" that arrived at the Tower Bridge public boat dock at 10:30 am.
"The drought is taking a major toll on our rivers—California’s lifeblood," according to Eric Wesselman, Executive Director of Friends of the River. "In addition to the noon program event at the Capitol, this day included a morning paddle down the Sacramento River to the Capitol, informational booths on the West Steps of the building, and meetings with legislators to promote sustainable drought solutions that protect our rivers."   

Katherine Evatt of the Foothill Conservancy, who also spoke at the noon rally, said, "California rivers matter. It is important that California rivers have a voice in the Legislature. We gathered here today to give California rivers a voice and to tell the Legislature that California rivers matter - and to make sure that they do not lose sight of that in the drought."  

The groups and Tribes released a letter to Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Pro Tem Kevin de Leon and Speaker Toni Atkins urging them to take a number of actions: 
• Oppose any potential legislative efforts to weaken environmental protections for rivers  such as removing Wild & Scenic River protections for the McCloud River, reducing  minimum flow standards, or shortcutting the environmental review process for surface storage projects by undercutting the California Environmental Quality Act.

• Oppose AB 1242 (Gray) as it would undermine the Water Board’s authority to require adequate instream flows to protect water quality, fish and wildlife, and aquatic habitat. 

• Support SB 226 (Pavley), and expedite implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014, especially for critical overdraft basins, to ensure that the limits on surface water sources do not lead to over-pumping of groundwater and the collapse of our aquifers—California’s largest, cheapest, and most environmentally sound reservoirs. 

• Support SB 637 (Allen) to provide for the regulation of motorized suction dredge gold mining. 

•Support AB 142 (Bigelow) to require the Resources Secretary to study and make a recommendation to the Legislature as to whether 37 miles of the Mokelumne River should be protected in the California Wild & Scenic Rivers System.

• Support SB 555 (Wolk) to take a needed step toward reducing system losses by requiring annual water loss audits and reporting. 

• Support AB1, now in the Senate, (Brown) to prohibit a city or county from imposing a fine for a brown lawn or failure to water a lawn during a period for which the Governor has issued a state of emergency due to drought conditions.    
The letter also noted that "building massive surface storage projects" will not address the water crisis:

"The Public Policy Institute of California recently reported that the five major surface water storage projects currently under study (including the three most controversial projects – the Shasta Dam raise, Temperance Flat Dam, and Sites Reservoir) will cost roughly $9 billion but increase annual average supplies by just 1 percent. What these projects will do is put the state deeper in debt, delay our pursuit of real solutions, and destroy rivers along with Native American culture, family ranches, and thousands of acres of habitat for wildlife."
