Mohawk Nation News 'We Have to Fix It"

WE HAVE TO FIX IT

Mohawk Nation News
Please post.
MNN. Dec. 8, 2016. All the pipelines have to be stopped.
The agents of repression are in our midst at Standing Rock. Apparently Oren Lyons, the Seneca who poses as an Onondaga, has arrived. As the ‘faith keeper’, a Christian religious title invented by the divide and conquer traitors and their puppet masters, he’s being sent in by the BIA, for whom he works. He will convince corpo Lakota tribal chairman Archambault to make some kind of agreement to allow the pipe.
Our children, grandchilden and the  future of the unborn.
Our children, grandchilden and the future of the unborn.

Because Lyons treasonous acts against the Onondaga and other rotino’shonni, he has no voice in the Confederacy.
During Wounded Knee in the early 1970s, Lyons broke down the relations between the Iroquois Confederacy, people out west and the American Indian Movement. AIM invited respected warriors to help them fight back against oppression.ows_147812806087626-1
At a meeting, AIM asked the Onondaga, “What do you do when you’re attacked?” Onondatga tribal chiefs said they turn the other cheek just like in the Bible they call “the black book”.. Since then support for onondaga chiefs by the people has dwindled.
Tuscarora, Seneca, Oneida and Mohawk people will have always resisted the best way we could.2300-ndpipelinemap-v21-1
The black wampum is he final offer of peace according to the terms of the kaia’nere:kowa, the great peace. When it’s not taken, the wampum is dropped and when it hits the ground, there’s no more talk.csmwpoxwaaeez4r
Archambault represents himself and those who voted for him. He’s not following Lakota law. He is an assimilate.
The corporate councils are talking about American and Canadian sovereignty they are a part of. The only sovereign on great turtle island are the native people. We have to make our choice. We can’t have a foot in our canoe and in the white man’s vessel. The first time a storm hits, they will fall into the depth and drown.la-na-tt-standing-rock-20161129
Too many of our people want the benefits and comfort but none of the responsibility. They want everything handed to them to help them justify being irresponsible and not taking the blame.
We have to remove the fox from the henhouse by any means necessary.
We can always blame god, turmoil in our communities or the economics for not looking out for our children and our mother. Let’s all roll up our sleeves and clean all our houses.

Dec 9 am Dine’ Warriors for Standing Rock Update: our Dine’ Warriors rolled into Shiprock about 8:45 last evening. After they deboarded, unloaded their gear, we proceeded to assure their good transition back to our homelands with Dine’ traditional observance that reenacted the coming home ceremony of the Warrior Twins. The five part ceremonial process completed their coming home within the four mountains. The ceremonial process was finished with a beautiful song of honoring and being thankful for our lands by one of esteemed young people, Nicole Keeswood.
We gave them words of appreciation and admiration for their journey to represent the Dine’ people at Oceti Sakowin at Standing Rock Sioux Tribal territories. The call to stand arm in arm with the thousands of other Veterans of the US military was answered by these Vets with support from our own Water Protectors. After these short talks we had a delicious potluck dinner provided by community members. Some of the Dine’ Warriors recounted their experiences in Standing Rock. We gave thanks to our spiritual leader, to Nicole, the leaders of the journey - Beverly Maxwell, Anthony Aspaas, Ronald Daw and Alex Ashley, our recruiters - Angie Barney Nez, Eunice Begay, Anderson Tullie and Julius Tullie, our homebase coordinating crew - Redawn George, Tommie Yazzie and most in particular Josey Foo whose 501c3 non-profit received the funds that financed the trip and Josey was the pivotal point in the overall coordination including transportation, lodging, food, etc. And we are truly indebted to the National Nurses United, whose funds made it all possible. 
So this portion of our Stand with Standing Rock is done, but as we are all very aware the fight will go on and we must keep in prayer our Warriors that remain at Standing Rock. We have been resisting since 1492 and we shall continue to resist in perpetuity defending our homelands, waters, our people and our grandchildren to come. In recognizing that this is our fate in life as Indigenous peoples and all people with good hearts, there remains a sense of urgency to be vigilant and hold that line we draw in the Rez dirt. I hear many people say they want to go next time, there WILL be a next time, whether it be at Standing Rock or right here in our own front yard with Pinion Pipeline or the dooda uranium front, the continuing nightmare of Black Mesa exploitation or the fight to protect our waters. Dear family, there is much that remains in our fight to preserve our Earth Mother and waters, we have no option but to stand strong together and be that bundle of arrows unbreakable. Ahe’hee.
Previous update
Dec 8 evening Dine' Warriors for Standing Rock Update: our Warriors are coming down the Rocky Mountains, they made it over Wolf Creek Pass, no problemo. projected time of arrival at the Shiprock Chapter House is 9:00 pm. We need people to be here by 8:30 or earlier, We want a full house so plez join us. I truly hope there is Rez style potluck foods coming. (Three Dine' Vets stayed in camp. Posted Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016)

Previous update:
Dec 8 at noon -- Dine’ Warriors for Standing Rock Update: our Warriors are on the road and headed home, with the time zone difference that helps, although the earliest they will roll into Shiprock is 8:30, so they should be in the house at 9:00 pm. We are making the call for prepared foods to do the potluck dinner. There are families from across the Rez that are planning to be here to join in the Welcome Home celebration and to pick up their Warrior. I will post again about 6pm with any new developments and see if can pinpoint the arrival time. Either way those who are going to here, should be at the Shiprock Chapter House at 8:00pm.
Previous update:
Dec 8 am Dine’ Warriors for Standing Rock Update: our Dine’ Warriors did not get into Colorado Springs until 4:30 this morning. The drivers have said they will not get on the road until 1:00 pm, which will push our Welcome Home gathering/potluck into the late hours, even past 9:00. Nevertheless we will be here for them, they represented us at Standing Rock; we will show our appreciation. Certainly we will ask the drivers and their coordinators if they would consider leaving earlier, I will post at noon with any time schedule adjustments. If families from Chinle area and other locations can arrange rides to pick up your Warriors in Shiprock, we will help with gas to get you home.
As I reported 3 of our Warriors stayed at Oceti Sakowin, they made a personal and courageous decision that we respect and honor. I am asking to know how many of our Dine’ remain there in the brutal winter, I know Graham and some of his cohorts are still there and don’t expect to leave camp any time soon. There are comments that were made about why did our Warriors go for only a couple days, why not let some of them stay there to support the Oceti Sakowin for the long term, as we know this thing ain’t over. That is a difficult matter to think on, particularly when we hear the Chairman saying “thank you but you should go home”, this is said partly for the safety of the people and that is appreciated. Then we hear from determined Warriors who declare that they will not leave until the pipeline is dead.
The main objective of our Dine’ Warriors in the last couple of days was to have some of our Veterans stand with their comrades on December 05 and that was done. Many left their jobs and their family responsibilities for only a few days and weren’t prepared to stay an extended amount of time. We should not question ‘how much’ we are committed we each are; we are committed because it’s a matter of life, the realities is we all have our own life responsibilities, our hectic work and many times difficult life situations. There is much to be discussed on this, but for now we must celebrate our Warriors who return to their homelands tonite.


Oceti Sakowin Camp -- Stand Strong and Resonate Across the World -- Dec. 7, 2016

Censored News

Standing Rock Reservation, Oceti Sakowin Camp. North Dakota—Our first concern issafety. We ask all who can and want to leave, to return home. We are especially concerned for elders, families with children, those with health concerns, and/or pets that aren't acclimated. For those who can stay—and are prepared for arctic conditions—please do, we need people here. The Lakota/Nakota/Dakota people of The Great Sioux Nation have survived in these conditions for thousands of years. If Ally Protectors cooperate with the ancient wisdom and ways of these lands, we will fare well. This movement is unlike any other—it is prayerful as well as peaceful—the consciousness we have raised here continues to resonate across the world.

Secondly we ask this of you in order to conserve resources. Bringing in wood, and other essential life supporting goods, is now much more complicated. For those who want to come, be prepared for arctic conditions, we can't stress this enough. Be ready to contribute to the survival and safety of the camp in a significant way daily, be abundant in spirit and ready to share. Bring wood, plan to work. We need cooks, medics, builders/repair-persons, people dedicated to the survival of the community, for the coming storms. Bring weather-ready vehicles, 4x4 trucks and trailers, snow-ready vehicles.
Oceti Sakowin Camp remains determined—to protect our land. We have been given the obligation to do so in the treaty of 1851—we were specifically asked to protect this river. This is the way of the Standing Rock people, the Lakota people, the Hunkpapa people. All of the seven tribes of The Great Sioux Nation have gathered here again in an historic way—once as former enemies, we now stand together as brothers and sisters.
We are not protestors.
We are not terrorists.
We are not rioters.
We are in fact, Protectors.
