MNN. April 2, 2017. It wasn’t negligence. The corporation planned and carried out the biggest holocaust in history. We descendants can’t let bygones be bygones. It was brutal without regard for our men, women, children, babies, all life. Now what happens to those who did this to us and enjoy the benefits?

For 500 years beneficiaries kept silent about the murder of over 100 million of our people throughout the western hemisphere and the destruction of our mother that continues to this day. Their main war has always been against our minds. They want to continue with their same old same old colonial policy to kill the INDIAN and steal the land. They can’t beat the murder rap because there is no statute of limitations for murder.

The invaders still want to rape and murder our mother. They want to steal from us to make weapons to kill us.
They lie to their children. They and their cohorts have no choice but to face the consequences because the settlers are starting to wake up to the lie they are living.
The mass murders will never be forgotten. They were deliberate.
Our language and ceremonies connect us to the sky and the earth. Our rights come from creation. We have the right to use our minds to think, ask questions, disagree. ka-neh-ron-kwa-stera, nature made us so that we love our families and all natural life. We give the direction to our children because no one loves them more than us.
We know who and what they are. wa-seh-wat-ket-sko. Many have awakened and are hit by the truth. Sorry is nothing more than a confession. Now the guilty parties need to be convicted of their crimes.
Our 49 rotino’shonni families of the iera-kwa [the sun shines on all of us] are of the same blood, with one mind, one direction, one cause – to end all war.
John Trudel reminds us of the history Americans prefer to forget: “Crazy Horse. We hear what you say, “One Earth, One Mother. One does not sell the Earth the People walk upon”. We are the Land. How do we sell our Mother? How do we sell the Stars? How do we sell the Air? Crazy Horse. We hear what you say. Too many people standing their ground. Standing the wrong crowd. Brother’s face. He possessed a race. Possession, A war that doesn’t end. Children of God feed on Children of Earth’.
John Trudel “Crazy Horse.
