Mohawk Nation News 'Standing Like A Rock'



Please post & distribute.
MNN. Aug. 28, 2016. All the people are standing together like a rock at Standing Rock. Creation reminds us of our original instruction as original human beings when we were placed here. Our instructions are to survive and co-exist with nature as siblings on our mother, the earth. We stand together wherever we are in the world against the corporations, that are not humans and have more rights than human beings and the natural world?standing rock

In 1917 when the people of Russia had enough and stood up to protest the corporations, Tzar Nicholas sent in the police to attack the people. After a few months, the police said, “We are of the people” and joined them. The Tzar promptly ordered the army to attack the people. Then the army joined the people and killed the Tzar [corporation].
The people are standing strong for Standing Rock. The police are starving the people, stopping food, water, necessities and threatening our freedom. It’s only a matter of time when the police will realize that they are the people. It will signal the end of the corporation. We will have peace here on great turtle island.
thahoketoteh sings about standing up: “I speak to you now, proud and brave, remembering the lessons my ancestor gave. About acknowledgement and respect, and the four races as they intersect. … Power to the people, real people. Power to the people, all people. Power to the people, onkwe’hon:weh”.

We Need Your Help!

Yesterday a contingent from Black Lives Matter and the Crow Nation arrived giving yet another huge boost to the camp's heightened morale where people from all walks of life, all nations, all colors, all backgrounds, are coming together to challenge the ongoing destruction of Unci Maka (Mother Earth) and the Mni Wakan (Sacred Water) that adorns her.  
This is one river in one remote area of a great Red nation, the Oceti Sakowin, and it is here that our people, our allies, our families, are making a stand against the UNRELENTING and URGENT needs for clean drinking water and all that depends upon her for life.  But this is not just a fight for the Cannonball, the Missouri or the Standing Rock Reservation.  It is for every body of water on this planet and a stand against everyone who would destroy Mni Wakan for greed.
We are going nowhere. We are Water Protectors.
You are Water Protectors.
