ST LOUIS, MO -- There were 12 of us who traveled from Dził Yíjiin (Black Mesa) to the headquarters of Peabody Energy in St. Louis, Missouri to demand justice for our homeland as Peabody declares bankruptcy. We stood in solidarity with Rocky Branch and people across the world impacted by Peabody. We took the streets as our friends and allies blockaded traffic. We sang many songs to honor our elders past and present who have always fought for future generations to maintain a connection to Dził Yíjiin. We must make damn sure Peabody is held accountable for fully restoring everything it has destroyed.
Without water all life on Black Mesa will cease to exist. Peabody must replenish the Navajo Aquifer in quality and quantity and the Department of Interior must hold Peabody liable for damages until the N-Aquifer shows full recovery

MNN. APR. 21, 2016. Let’s look at ourselves. Ono’ware:geh great turtle island is our birthright till we die.water flowsIndian Affairs has been continuously using the religious indoctrination for mind control of our children at Attawapiskat. These are the same institutions that murdered 70,000 of our children in the residential school holocaust that everyone seems to ignore. Drugs are not natural to this isolated fly-in community on James Bay. The drugs killing our children are not street drugs. They are brought in by government and under the guise of ‘religion’ and prescribed by ‘doctors’ in the form of antidepressants. This is another one of their extermination programs paid out of our Indian Trust Funds.

DIA Dealer: “Hey, man! They’re tax free!”
Our longhouses and tribal and band council “leaders” allow this to happen in our communities, while they cry for pity and funds from the public. In the meantime they suck up to Obama, Trudeau, the Pope, etc. in Ottawa, Washington, Paris, UN …bribing These assimilates work for the Canadian government instead of their people. Every chief has been approached by an Economic Hit Man who says, “Don’t worry about the people. Think about you and your family”. These demons sit back while our children stagger on the road to oblivion. They help their masters to abuse us.
Apologies from Canada, US or anybody else is meaningless. They continue to commit the same heinous crimes they did from July 1, 1867 when they incorporated. The business plan of the corporation of Canada is  genocide & theft of anything that is onkwe’hon:weh.
Self-destruction happens when we refuse to take responsibility. Social “potty training” programs are designed to make us dependent and shut out the fires for us. The cops stop us from helping neighbors who are being abused. Parents send their troublesome kids to the child care workers for disposal.
We grandparents have power, strength and knowledge on what is best for our children. We study each child’s gifts and help them find their way. We give advice – waohkenkstenhaneh – to help them carry their burden.
We use our instincts to carry out our original instructions from our great mother. The great peace gives us a strong mind, to be used, not abandoned.

Antidepressants are suicide drugs. Every mass shooter in the US was on these kinds of pharmacological poisons. Doctors who prescribe antidepressants or prescription drug cocktails know of the powerful side effects. Chemical imbalance combined with the program of brainwashing are meant to create emotional turmoil.
A clan system helps us follow the great peace. This dire situation applies to almost all our communities.defiance
Alice Cooper sings about the poison of government being dispensed in our communities: “I want to love you but I better not touch (don’t touch). I want to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop. I want to kiss you but I want it too much (too much). I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison. You’re poison, running through my veins. You’re poison, I don’t want to break these chains.” [Poison].

Camp brings opponents of water development project in Nevada

Activists Gather to Oppose SNWA

“Sacred Water, Sacred Forests” Camp Brings Opponents of Water Pipeline and Pinyon-Juniper Treatments to Spring Valley


By Max Wilbert


Spring Valley, Nev. (May 28) – Deep Green Resistance, an organization opposing the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s (SNWA) proposed groundwater development project and the Pinyon-Juniper forest treatments taking place across the intermountain West, is organizing a gathering over Memorial Day weekend, May 28th and May 30th.
The event will take place at Cleve Creek Campground in Spring Valley, between Baker and Ely.
            Organizers say the event will include a community BBQ, workshops, campfires, activities for kids, and visits to important sites that may be impacted by the groundwater project and Pinyon-Juniper treatment sites. Attendees are expected to include local Shoshone and Goshute tribal members, ecologists and activists, and community members.
            This is the third year local pipeline opponents have partnered with activists from Utah, Oregon, Colorado and California to organize a trip in the region. Trip organizers say the purpose of the tour is to appreciate the land threatened by water extraction and learn more about the issues, as well as to build a community of activists to resist the water grab.
Rick Spilsbury of the Ely-Shoshone Tribe has been fighting the water grab for decades, and sees opposition as critical to the future.
“The Western Shoshone still hunt and gather here—right where the worst of the environmental damage will be.” said Spilsbury. “The mass killing of life in this area will not only be the final blow to Western Shoshone culture, it will be a serious threat to their long-term sustainability—and even viability.”
The $10 billion SNWA groundwater development project would extract water from mountain valleys in eastern Nevada and deliver it by pipeline to Las Vegas. The project faces mounting opposition and was dealt another blow in the State Supreme Court last May, when the court denied petitions from SNWA and the State Engineer.
Activists are also concerned about Pinyon Pine and Juniper trees, which they allege are being destroyed inappropriately. The BLM, which contends that Pinyon-Juniper forests are spreading into new areas and destroying habitat for the threatened Sage Grouse, has been removing Pinyon-Juniper forests for over a decade and plans to remove millions more acres of forest within the next decade.
