Mohawk Nation News 'Trial of the Century'



Please post & distribute.
MNN. Aug. 24, 2016. In this whole staged event, New York State tried to put out all the candles but 16 are still burning bright. The pro se are becoming known in certain circles as the “Sweet 16 Solicitors” or “SSS”. It’s one entity and it’s all based on the kaia’nere:kowa, the great peace.we choose the earth-1
US and NYS are being put on trial by the SSS who are victims of the crime. The Troopers assaulted over 100 men, women, children and babies on May 18, 1997. People who show no interest in such a case show their complicity in the whole problem country-wide.homeland sec racial system
Judge Frederick Scullin [Bones] is trying to throw the case out so the criminals can walk free. He is trying to discredit the SSS every way he can even before the trial starts. indian pledge-1
Last year when ambulance chasers Hoffman, Annelo and all the others dropped us for not taking the NYS settlement, they hoped we would dry up and blow away. Now as the trial of the century approaches, the SSS are ready, willing and able to end this nightmare once and for all. Assistant AG Mulvey says the Troopers handled us with kid gloves. Police videos show otherwise. They are seen hitting the victims with their baseball bats in the head, neck, back, legs and bodies multiple times, even trying to pull down one guy’s pants while whacking him. We acted respectfully throughout trying to protect ourselves and our kids. NYS cops want to keep their habit of physically abusing and humiliating us. Besides being upset over our existence, they were mad at us about something that happened somewhere else. It’s gets nutty in the nuthouse when the inmates are running the asylum.
The biggest trial of the century is not being covered by mainstream media. This will not be forgotten.
EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! The trial starts on September 20 in Syracuse at 100 Clinton Street. Bring your dancing shoes to court because we’re going to be kicking up the dust in Syracuse. As Chuck Berry laments: “We’ll be rocking in Boston and Pittsburgh PA. Deep in the heart of Texas and round the Frisco Bay. Way out in St. Louis and down in New Orleans, all the cats wanna dance with sweet little 16”.

Standing Rock Resistance Radio 'A Song for Women, A Song for Water'

Article by Brenda Norrell
Censored News

Gathered in camp, Lakota water protectors share their stories, dreams and songs.
One of the Lakota women speaks on the importance of women and mothers.
After talking with the ladies in the kitchen, she said, "They work very hard to feed people, they have to have healing hands to make our foods into healing."
Lakotas here have a saying, and it is, "Welcome home."
She sings a Lakota song of encouragement for the women, and encourages the mothers, the teachers of the children, who carry the culture.
Women carry the spirit that is in the drum, she said.
Jeff, from Ontario, speaks of being open to the universe, and the connection of the heart with the river. Jeff shares a dream, of what happened to the world. He said long ago, we trusted in the universe. People didn't take any more than they needed.
Over across the seas, somewhere, people were starving, or there was a drought, and people began taking more than they needed.
"That sickness grew. They organized it into religions and governments, that sickness."
"We are not separate from the universe."
Jeff speaks of the power here, the love in the hearts, of those who came together here to defend this water, this river.
"This is where the real power is."
He sings a water song.

Standing Rock Resistance Radio: Healing the trauma of boarding school

Healing trauma through ceremonies and the foods we eat, elders in the circle at Standing Rock camp

Article by Brenda Norrell
Censored News

Gathered at night at Standing Stone camp, Frank, an elder, speaks of the trauma of boarding schools.
Frank shares how becoming a spiritual human being is healing and how we can heal ourselves through the foods we eat.
Frank speaks of the trauma of boarding school. His long hair was shaved. He was hit in the head by a nun, and his hearing damaged, because his pencil went into his ear.
"A little boy was killed at this school, there was no investigation."
The little girls were raped over and over.
There was a tunnel, and at the end of the tunnel, there was a little burial place underneath the ground.
"There are little infants laying there from this abuse, this rape."
"I carried these things for a long time."
"Today I have my canupa."
"I came to the ways of my ancestors, and I began to heal."
"Our people have been put through these traumas for a long time."
Frank said he is glad today that there are tribally-run schools. The young ones will not have to go through the abuse of boarding schools.
"We need to heal as human beings."
Frank said we need healing through diet, through what we eat, so we can become spiritual human beings.
"We have to be in balance to sit in the sacred circle."
Speaking of this pipeline, this black snake, that is waiting down the road, Frank said, "This black snake is a sign of the times. We need to prepare ourselves for a new time."
Frank said it was an honor to be here. "This gathering is worldwide, I am honored and privileged to stand beside you for water and for life."
After Frank speaks, an elder water defender shares a story of Frank, and how Frank helped heal him.
This elder tells of one's relationship with fire, and the need to develop a relationship with what is sacred.
As the water protectors were gathered at night in camp, he said, "Tomorrow we have to pray for life."
"When I was in the boarding school, there was no balance."
"We have balance here."
He said the healing is in the ceremonies.
"Sometimes we have to pursue it, sometimes it comes to us."
