DENVER -- Stronghold Sacred Journey was welcomed by Grupo Tlaloc at its annual Xupantla ceremony in Denver, Colorado. Blessings and Prayers offered for safe travel to the Poor People’s Campaign action on June 23.
.

Manzanola, Colorado, June 16
Our sacred journey to DC to convene with the Poor People’s Campaign follows a spiritual schedule and not an issues or rallies schedule, Wendsler Nosie, Sr reminds us. So our route is arranged according to Prayers and Dreams and they are leading us to places of deep pain for native people, to places where the earth suffers because of the colonizers’ extractive profit driven ways, to our members families to offer protection and where we celebrate and laugh together eating Fry Bread & buffalo soup, to sacred places to connect with their deities, and along the way we are laying a path of sacred black stones to heal all that this Nation has destroyed and disconnected. We need to reconnect what the colonizers ways has broken.
When we entered the Sweat for prayers in Manzanola, one of the local elders who was guiding our Sweat, Chief Gordon Plain Bull Jr, began by telling us he needed this. “It’s been too long,” he said, “I need this to get back to reality.” This is the reality that the Poor People’s Campaign is calling Moral Revival that we need to get back to. Prayer is the way to begin rejecting the lies and delusions of what the colonizer calls reality. We need to listen and learn from our spiritual native brothers and sisters in order to learn to see what is real and begin to live in ways that heal our brokenness and the evils of materialism, systemic racism, militarism, ecological devastation and Christian nationalism.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse with Tiokasin Ghosthorse -- An Energy Shift Needed to Save Mother Earth and Ourselves




Chief Arvol Looking Horse with Tiokasin Ghosthorse -- An Energy Shift Needed to Save Mother Earth and Ourselves

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, describes the energy shift needed to save Mother Earth and ourselves.
Chief Looking Horse welcomed all to World Peace and Prayer Day, and spoke of the need for all the world's peoples to come together in unity.
Speaking with Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Cheyenne River Lakota host of First Voices, Chief Looking Horse begins by describing a dream that he had as a child.
He dreamed of the Earth opening up, and circles of people standing together, with a Sacred Fire in the middle.
As a child he followed the words of his father, and prayed about this dream, and waited for it to reveal itself.
Chief Looking Horse said when the White Buffalo Calf was born in 1994 in Wisconsin, "through Ceremony we made a statement to the world."
"From here on we are going to see global disasters, we are going to see Earth changes, and climate changes, and we are going to see people that are spiritually disconnected. We are going to see a lot of pain and suffering, and we must unite spiritually."
"That is the only way we are going to save Mother Earth and save ourselves. If Mother Earth dies, we die."
Chief Looking Horse said, "Mother Earth is drying up."
"We took a stand at Standing Rock, and I shared that teaching of Crazy Horse, one of his last dreams in the Black Hills, the heart of Mother Earth."
"It is shaped like a heart."
"We can't do it alone, we need the whole world together."
Chief Looking Horse spoke on Sacred Water.
"In Ceremonies, we pray with the water. It is the first medicine the Great Spirit gave us."
The First Spirit was red, was hot. The Second Spirit was water.
Chief Looking Horse said when the two came together, it created a Sacred Energy.
Even before Fukushima, the poisons of Earth Mother were known. This is one of them, he said.
"It is going to affect us because it is now going into the air."
Chief Looking Horse said an energy shift is needed to heal the earth and unite the people.
Chief Looking Horse invited everyone to the World Peace and Prayer Day, to the Sacred Fire, June 18 -- 21, with the Sycuan Kumeyaay, in El Cajon, Calif.

Honoring Johnny Bonta, Paiute, Murdered by Sparks Nevada Police

By Lisa Bonta
Censored News

RENO -- On June 12, 2018 in Reno, Nevada, a Prayer circle was formed by the American Indian Movement Northern Nevada Chapter. The focus was to honor the family of Johnny Bonta.
Johnny was a member of the Reno Sparks Indian Colony.  He was murdered by Sparks Police department in front of his apartment on October 22, 2017. This took place in front of his wife, Lisa Bonta and their 16 year-old-daughter.
Johnny was a 43 year-old PAIUTE Warrior. He was a father of five, a son, brother, grandfather, and more. He was a Sundancer, and member of AIM Southern California.
The first of many lawsuits was to be heard by Federal Judge Robert Jones on June 22, 2018.
Many people gathered that day to pray for the mind of Judge Jones. Some of those included, Buck Sampson, Ray Valdez, and Rocky Boice Sr.
Buck Sampson has been the Spiritual Advisor for the Bonta family for many years. He has been involved with the family since the incident, and continues to support them in a good way.
Reno Cop Watch joined in that day, bringing out others who had family members killed by a will enforcement. Many of these families are still seeking justice.
Among the crowd was Sheri Potts, mother of Sonny Lewis who was murdered in the parking lot of the Walmart 5 years ago.
The Walmart is on tribal land and the FBI has closed the case. Sheri continues to fight for her Son's Justice.
Judge Robert Jones chose to vacate the hearing after Tuesday. He has decided to make a decision on his own as to weather he will hear the case or not.
We continue to pray for the mind of the Judge that he will make the right decision.
There was media present, including the Reno Gazette Journal, and Channel 4 news. Both failed the families and didn't air or print the stories. The media is part of the problem. They do not feel that our families deaths and suffering is important. They are showing their corruption by not speaking for us. We intend on exposing all of the corruption in Washoe County, and will include the media. Our a families lives do matter!
Judge Robert Jones has vacated Mondays hearing and will now decide on his own to hear the case or not. We will appeal if he chooses not to. Our prayer circle did not end with a closing prayer as it was left open for further action.

Apache Stronghold -- Prayers at Dine' Sacred Sisnaajini, Blanca Peak, Colorado

Sisnaajini or Blanca Peak, Colorado
June 15, 2018
The Stronghold Sacred Journey stopped for prayers at the base of one of the four sacred mountains of the homelands of the Diné. Sisnaajini sits as the Eastern facing mountain peak. And as one of members of the Journey, Derek who is Diné, said to us, "It is a place where the Creator made to assist us with right thinking, of learning to see clearly."
And so we offered prayers with cedar and we saw that with all of our differences that the colonizer’s world uses to separate us, that we were really one family. We are brothers and sisters. If only this nation could see this — our sacred unity — it might see clearly enough to adjust its thinking.
These are the prayers that our sacred journey brings for the Poor People’s Campaign.

Leonard Peltier Day San Francisco, June 26, 2018


Leonard Peltier Day San Francisco
On the 50th anniversary of AIM!
(1968-2018)

By AIM West
Censored News
Leonard is innocent!
Yet he languishes in federal prison (now in Coleman Penitentiary near Orlando, Florida) for over 43 years for a crime he did not commit!
AIM-WEST is hosting this event Tuesday, June 26th in solidarity with Pine Ridge Tribal Council resolution declaring “Leonard Peltier Day.”
The Department of Justice (DoJ) continues to withhold tens of thousands of pages as evidence for Leonard’s defense, and federal prosecutors said in court to Judge Haney they don’t know who did the shooting of the two FBI agents on that fateful day June 26, 1975, nor what role Leonard played in it! That should be enough to exonerate Leonard! ‘The bullet doesn’t match the gun (rifle).’
The drawing is by Comrade Emory Douglas, former Black Panther Minister of Culture, in solidarity with AIM.
We have posters to raffle! A Potluck, film, solidarity speakers and vendors! Please share and the public is welcome! Let’s not forget this Human Rights Defender!
Aho! All my relations!

Apache Stronghold: Prayer for the Water, Gold King Mine Spill


By Steve Pavey
Censored News
June 15, 2018

The Stronghold Sacred Journey stops to pray at the Animas river on its way to Pueblo, CO. In 2015 the Gold King Mine Spill poisoned the Animas and San Juan rivers with heavy metals and other toxins that affected up to 2,000 Navajo farmers crops and cattle. The EPA took responsibility but paid no damages claiming Sovereign Immunity. This sacred journey is about exposing through the Poor People’s Campaign this country’s priority of corporate interests and profit over the interests of the earth and sacred life.
