Mohawk Nation News 'From Poppies to Heroin'






From Poppies to Heroin

Mohawk Nation News

MNN. 13, 2019. Protect the poppies says Don Cherry, the loud mouthpiece for “Hockey Night in Canada”. Heroin is made from poppies. Wearing the poppy means you celebrate, glorify and want more war and drugs. This UK tradition started after World War I. The bankers will not stay wealthy from peace.



Don Cherry, a European immigrant, scolds everybody, in effect, for not supporting the war, “You have benefitted from the genocide of the Indians here”. Many told him to shit in his hat. The bankers sent the youth to die for them on Flanders Field. Their families got nothing but heartaches and headaches. Poppies being made into heroin is to addict the world for more war. The bankers get rich through war!

'Why I oppose the Keystone XL pipeline' by Lisa DeVille, Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara






My home, the Ft. Berthold Reservation is a web of oil and gas pipelines. Here’s why I oppose the Keystone XL Pipeline.

My name is Lisa DeVille. My Indigenous name in white mans’ language is, “Accomplishes Everything.” I am an enrolled member of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nations, living with my family in Mandaree on the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota. Every day, we witness the environmental, health, and social impacts of living on the front lines of oil and gas extraction. We are losing our way of life because we are allowing Mother Earth to be killed as pipelines are dug into the earth as if they are her blood veins. At least 18 pipelines cross under Lake Sakakawea. I strongly oppose KXL pipeline because I have seen up close and personal what pipelines can do when they malfunction.
