CANNON BALL, North Dakota -- The President of the National Congress of American Indians, Brian Cladoosby, Swinomish, arrived with a large delegation from the Northwest today. Cladoosby told the camp that NCAI just wrote letters to President Obama and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in support of Standing Rock Sioux Nation and the struggle here to halt Dakota Access Pipeline from poisoning the water source, the Missouri River.
"I went to a roadblock today, a stupid roadblock, just to irritate us," Cladoosby said. Cladoosby said it was good then to drive along the sacred river.
Yakama said they brought a semi of fresh food, watermelons and foods from the fields. "Food is our medicine."
Today, the Seneca Nation, Sac and Fox from Oklahoma, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, were all present in camp.
Yakama Chairman JoDe Goudy said the pipeline is a black snake. This black snake's head is in Texas, but his heart is in DC and belongs to the Congressmen and politicians who make these decisions.
"President Obama where are you?"
Goudy reminded President Obama that Obama came here to Standing Rock, and held these children, and made promises to them, he said,
"You had their babies in their arms, where are you?"


Navajo President Russell Begaye and Vice President Jonathan Nez arrived at the Standing Rock Camp today, and greeted a large delegation from the Northwest who arrived with a Totem Pole.
President Begaye said like the struggle here, the Navajo Nation is fighting the Gold King uranium spill, and the transportation of uranium waste.
"That is what is killing our people," Begaye said.
"We stand with you. We are proud of you."
Praising the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, Begaye said, "Thank you for standing up and saying, 'Enough is Enough!'"
President Begaye said the people all the way through the country, from South Dakota and Illinois, all the way to Louisiana, should be here fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline, that is threatening the water source of the Missouri River.
"They should be standing here also."
"They should be saying, 'Way to go, you stand for us!'" Begaye told the delegations gathered, which included Sac and Fox from Oklahoma, and Lummi, Yakama, Swinomish, Salish, Nisqually, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Oregon, and more from the Northwest.
President Begaye said the fight is not just Native, but it is for all people.
"This is the stand you guys are making, We support you."
Begaye thanked the Dine' who have been there, camping and cooking, and supporting the camp.
"We stand up and fight for what we believe."
Begaye said they will continue to fight with the people here.
"When we come together, we are strong."
"We will make our stand when we have to make our stand."
Begaye said this is being broadcast to other parts of the world.
Navajo Vice President Jonathan Nez said, "Our Indigenous language is very important."
Vice President Nez thanked the people here for "really standing up for what you believe."
"No more. Enough is enough!" Nez said.
"We need to stand together, shoulder to shoulder."
Nez said it is time to stand up to the U.S. government.
Nez thanked the young people here at Standing Rock Camp.
"They are leading us here today."
"We are standing with you in solidarity."
Nez closed with a 'thank you' in Dine'.


Nisqually Chairman Farron McCloud said, "That world out there, lots of violence, but we are coming together as one. We believe in coming together."
"This means a lot to the Native people. We are all together."
"It is a great honor to be here in your beautiful sacred land."

CANNON BALL, North Dakota -- The grassroots live radio station, Standing Rock's Spirit Resistance Radio began broadcasting live on Monday morning, after a satellite was installed on Sunday. Thousands of Native Americans have gathered to protect the Missouri River from an underwater crude oil pipeline, Dakota Access Pipeline, which threatens their water supply.
The station was already live in camp at 87.9 FM.

Before the satellite was installed, Govinda Dalton of Earthcycles, producer, was driving the audios out of camp. The audios were then posted on Censored News, due to the lack of Internet service in camp.
A delegation of Apache and Dine’ (Navajo) youths were among those interviewed on Spirit Resistance Radio. Naelyn Pike, Apache, described how Arizona Sen. John McCain sold out the Apaches by giving Resolution Copper their sacred place of Oak Flat in Arizona. McCain put the land exchange in the defense spending bill to avoid public detection and outcry at the time.
Spirit Resistance Radio interviewed Lakota elders and youths, along with young entrepreneurs from Rosebud who are beekeepers selling their honey, and those whose lives are being transformed by being at the camp.
“It is no longer a camp, it is a village,” said Govinda Dalton, producer, who has been broadcasting Indigenous news and struggles as a volunteer for more than a decade on Earthcycles.
Dennis Banks, co-founder of the American Indian Movement, and attorneys have been interviewed on Spirit Resistance Radio.
The issues range from the Rights of Nature, with roots in Bolivia and Ecuador, to a series recorded around the campfire at night. This includes Lakota elders speaking on healing the trauma of boarding schools with ceremonies.

Tlingit water and medicine songs are included in the radio programs, which began with an interview with Waniya Locke, Lakota mother and teacher. Michelle Cook, Dine’, on the legal team, describes her personal journey here.
Native American water defenders speak passionately on protecting the Missouri River for future generations.
Radio stations across the country are now requesting to rebroadcast the shows. The first was in Tampa, Florida.
Two Worlds Indigenous Radio, on WMNF community radio station in Tampa is broadcasting Standing Rock Spirit Resistance Radio. Mekasi Camp Horinek's interview, describing the first days of the blockade by Camp of the Sacred Stones, was the first.
Truckloads of hundreds of pounds of buffalo meat and and pallets of drinking water are now arriving at the camp, with trucks arriving from the Crow Nation, Cheyenne Arapaho Nation, and Cherokee Nation.

MOHAWK NATION NEWS: CRIMINAL CORPORATE OCCUPATION


CRIMINAL CORPORATE OCCUPATION


mnnlogo1

Please post & distribute.
MNN. AUG. 30, 2016. We onkwe’hon:weh, the natural people of great turtle island, are not part of the occupying CORPORATION. All Admiralty courts are artificial private Vatican courts for banks, corporations and are always about money. The corporation is a violent squatter that put their guns to us, killed us and stole everything. They started the same in Palestine in 1947. They try to put all of our issues into their own corporate matrix.white house indian
There is only one court that has jurisdiction over such an international matter, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, set up in 1899 in The Hague. It is a dispute resolution court. Every corporation has private shareholders, they can be held accountable for the crimes of their corporation in the Permanent Court of Arbitration. No trial about us or our land belongs in their corporate matrix. FB_IMG_1471552264063
This occupying corporation and their armies have to be put on trial in the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
The pipeline is on our land. They need our permission. Consultation with their corporate band and tribal entities are fraud. Canada and US have no right to arbitrate anything with regard to us and our land. We are not part of their corporation. B0_2210783226431832471_n
We have international partners, such as Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, Russia, China, India, iran and other ancient allies who sponsored us when we went to the League of Nations in 1923. They remember us.
As Bob Seeger sings about the people at Standing Rock: Like a rock, standin’ arrow straight. Like a rock, chargin, from the gate. Like a rock, carryin’ the weight. Like a rock.
