On Crow Voices Radio, Govinda interviewed Ofelia Rivas, Tohono O'odham, live from Montana today. Ofelia described the opposition to the Israeli spy towers of Elbit Systems, now being constructed on her Tohono O'odham Nation homeland.
Along with the spy towers, integrated fixed towers, the vehicle barrier now prevents animals from migrating. The towers allow the U.S. government to watch and listen to traditional O'odham in their home communities.
Rivas said the Tohono O'odham Nation government's opposition to the border wall is just rhetoric because the elected tribal government does not want to jeopardize its federal funding.
Traditional O'odham continue their prayers for the protection of the water and Quitobaquito Springs.
"We do need each others help to protect our lives and appreciation of Mother Earth," Rivas said.
"We are all going through a lot of changes."
Rivas said she is in a grieving mode, because there is a lot of destruction, and not just because of the pandemic. "The destruction of the sacred mountain affects our way of life."
O'odham remember their ancestors and hold them dear.
"If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be sitting here today."
As the number of O'odham communities on the south side of the border decreases, she said the Mexican government has not supported the O'odham on the south side. Rivas has been delivering water and food to O'odham.
"We meet at that fence," she said, of deliveries to O'odham on the south side.
"Stay strong, and be healthy, and be happy," she said.

Sending him my going home song and all the flowers for his walk to his community, to his family. Our prayer offerings are wonderfully fulfilled that no harm will come to the only Indigenous president of this world. I was a guest in his homelands and the people were so beautiful and they love President Juan Evo Morales Ayma. -- Ofelia Rivas, Tohono O'odham

Bolivian President Evo Morales invited members of the international press to join him at his mountain homeland in Bolivia, during the gathering in 2010. Here, he shared a traditional meal with us, fresh fish, purple potatoes and boiled corn on clay dishes, after Morales played a game of soccer.

Democracy Now! reports: "In Bolivia, a court in La Paz has dismissed terrorism charges and annulled an arrest warrant against Evo Morales, arguing the former president’s rights and due process had been violated. The charges were issued following a right-wing coup last year that overthrew Morales. This comes as Morales has vowed to return to Bolivia after Luis Arce of Morales’s MAS party won last week’s presidential election by a landslide. Morales has been in exile for nearly one year."

MNN. Oct. 27, 2020. Many places have accepted the right to die law on “euthanasia”. The elderly are placed in old people’s homes, neglected, dehydrated, starved and then they die.

Today the war is for control of the world by 3 groups of serpents who want to cut 90% of the world population by 2024. Euthanasia reflects a death wish culture which has been conditioned into their minds. They are losing their survival instinct by constantly thinking of and discussing death. The first invaders to turtle island were the French, English and Spanish. After WW II five countries got the atomic bomb to kill people – US, UK, France, Russia and China. Now others are fighting to have it too.     

It’s a capitalist game. The instinct for self preservation is being phased out or numbed. The human race is walking around thinking they’re going to die. The “Death Wish” culture is implanted in education, entertainment, books, media, discussions on the radio, work place environment, video games to train the killers to bomb from afar, hopelessness rhetoric, etc. 

People casually talk about wanting to die when their lives are unsatisfactory or don’t meet the fake standards set by the capitalist system. Pills are sold for all kinds of imagined new fangled ailments. Pills are made for anti-depression medications that aren’t working. To make more money the pharmaceutical industry want people to die slowly by unnaturally destroying their organs, especially the liver.   

Racial hatred is one of the most useful tools. Almost everybody hates somebody for imagined reasons. On the surface they are told it isn’t nice to hate, which their conditions hatred that ends up destroying them on the inside. They don’t know natives and our rights but they hate us. We do not intend to hurt anyone. The government wants us to be obedient and out of their way. Our stance makes it difficult for them to keep genociding us with impunity, They created fears of us based on manufactured lies. When they attack and dispossess us, they brag, write about and teach how dangerous we are!

This is military training! During World War II they were taught to hate the Germans and the Japanese. Later they were taught to love them. But not us because they are not done with us.

We constantly challenge their systemic hatred by saying we want peace and not to fight or hurt anyone. Peace is difficult when violence is always being used against us. We refuse to attack them but will defend ourselves, as is our human right. They are turning their aggression inwardly and tearing themselves apart. Seeing us and our continued existence stirs up their guilt. We are in their way. The serpents say we are “an inconvenient truth”. In 1974 Henry Kissinger said that 90% of the world’s population are “useless eaters”. So the UN enacted Agenda 21 and Agenda 30 to depopulate the world. 

The European environment was destroyed. They invaded us. kaianerekowa, the great peace, and two row principles are the basis of our existence and jurisdiction to preserve nature on turtle island. Their lives are empty and unnatural based on a systemic hatred culture to sustain themselves. The kaianerekowa, the great peace, is based on kaneronkwatsera, the strongest medicine in the world. Hatred interferes with straight thinking. Minds are put out of balance and confused. COVID stirs up fear about dying. Everyday the capitalist system puts out dire death and case statistics which can’t be verified.

It’s difficuilt to fight this underlying wish or fear of dying. Traumatic experiences make people either try harder to survive or give up.

The goal of residential and day schools was to program self-defeat, hopelessness and demoralization in the native people. It failed because of our closeness to the natural world. The invaders are confused about their purpose for being here where they don’t belong. They can’t find meaning in their meaningless existence. Some are running to nature but can’t find it. Their lives and deaths are still controlled by the capitalists. Everybody is tired of the virus but the virus has not lost interest in us.  

People wait to be told what to do instead of using their minds. “Put on your mask”, “wash your hands”, “stand 6 ft. apart”, “don’t go to parties”, “today 6 people only in your group”! Answer to a bell like an animal. “Wait for the clock” to run your life”. Everybody gets asked, “Do you have a fever, headache, diahorrea, lost taste buds, shortness of breath, flu like symptoms, or a death in the family?” . We are constantly monitored and threatened with fines and jail time for not following these rules.

When the government serpent grabs somebody by the throat, it gradually tightens its grip and squeezes the life out of the victim. The world is like a serpent that has wrapped itself around the human race. People don’t know how to fight the serpent that hides behind the virus. Then it comes out and snaps its tail with a death blow. Humans are made to think they have no choice. 

The largest most powerful multi national concentration of power is the pharmaceutical industry, controlled by the serpents that are squeezing the life out of humans. They make more money when they put a slow death stranglehold on the human race.

Few are hearing the truth. Their goal is to crush the human spirit with an unknown vaccination program that might turn us into GMOs. The human spirit can win. The truth is there but we’re not suppose to see or find it. It’s a secret puzzle that hypnotizes everybody. Time to open our eyes, use our minds and follow our natural instincts. The truth will rise up and show us how to survive. Hitler said the biggest weapon is to make up the biggest lie and tell it over and over again. The biggest lie will rule the world when told enough times. The only way to defeat a big lie is by grabbing and spilling out the whole truth. Don’t let the COVID serpent win.

Rumours of our extinction are greatly exaggerated. The worldwide COVID hypnotic spell has entered like a worm that bores a hole inside us and forms a nest. The absolute truth can remove this worm from the subconscious. The best lesson in kindergarten was about lying. Anything based on a lie will always be a lie no matter how many other lies are told or time passes to back it up. It will always be a lie.

FOOTNOTE: Presently schools and workplaces are full of COVID  which are kept secret to keep people occupied and afraid.

Freddie Mercury sings the truth in his song “Liar”. “I have sinned, dear father. Father I have sinned. Try and help me father, won’t you let me in. Liar. Oh, nobody believes me. Liar. Then why don’t you leave me alone?”
