Mohawk Nation News 'The Peace Song'




THE PEACE SONG





Mohawk Nation News


Please post and distribute.

MNN. 6 NOV. 2019. “wasaseh” is sung when something is damaged and it has to be fixed. Singing songs is a language. Once the tone comes from inside our consciousness, we activate our attitude, love, appreciation, desire for information. We can communicate with everything that exists. We can sing to the sun, earth, water, each other.

I think in terms of Divest, Invest, Protect, I don’t consider myself so much a lobbyist as a reality check, and someone who is merely delivering facts and truth.
And ultimately, I think that one of the important things we are doing is that we are not there to ask these banks to pity us, we are giving them a very clear warning that their time of dominating this earth is coming to an end.

Terry Tempest Williams: Castle Rock is alive. It has a heartbeat.




As a child, Mormons told Terry Tempest Williams that she had no authority to speak. Today, she spoke to hundreds of great thinkers and she told them of the heartbeat of the Earth.

The extraordinary speakers today at Bioneers included author Terry Tempest Williams, who spoke passionately of her homeland Utah and what has happened to Bear Ears and the Navajo land at Aneth, Utah, invaded and eroded by oil and gas drillers.
Williams also spoke of the Mormons who told her as a child that women and Natives have no right to speak. Today, Williams spoke out. She spoke out about a heartbeat at home, in the red rock canyonlands of Utah.
