Press Conference Wednesday, July 6 at 10am PT / 1pm ET


Anishanaabe Water Protectors were found not guilty for holding ceremony at the Mississippi River during Line 3 pipeline construction, in exercise of their treaty-reserved rights to protect sacred waters and all life that flows from it.

Join us at a press conference to discuss this major legal victory for Indigenous sovereignty and the right to protect sacred water and ancestral lands.

Join the press conference live:

The three Indigenous Water Protectors were represented through the Civil Liberties Defense Center and Water Protector Legal Collective partnership to boost legal representation capacity for Water Protectors who were arrested while defending Anishinaabe lands, the upper Mississippi watershed, and our collective climate future from construction of the Line 3 tar sands pipeline.

Exposing the Genocide: Torture Experiments, Trafficking and Mining

Exposing the Genocide: Torture Experiments, Trafficking and Mining

For the Children Who Never Came Home

Heart breaking, and gut wrenching, we are sharing the stories of the children who never came home.

The brainwashing, torture, trafficking, and drugging of children by the so-called elite -- politicians, Hollywood, and (disputed) royalty -- and CIA -- are being exposed in the Mohawk Mothers court case; Epstein articles; and the case of Tokata Iron Eyes, Lakota, daughter of Sara Jumping Eagle, pediatrician, and Chase Iron Eyes, attorney. 

Actor Ezra Miller remains in hiding with Tokata and police are unable to serve protective orders and warrants.

The Genocide

At the same time, many leaders of the movements now have COVID. On the northern border, Kanahus with the Tiny House Warriors was arrested at the border, charged and released.

The Mohawk Mothers continue their case in Ottawa Supreme Court, exposing the torture experiments of Canada and the U.S. CIA in the MK Ultra mind control experiments, the role of the band councils in genocide, and the search for the unmarked graves of the little ones, the children who never came home.

Mohawk Mothers told Aljazeera of the children who never came home from McGill University medical center, "I personally know of somebody who was taken there because he was 'unruly.'"

"They did a lobotomy on him and sent him back. And for 40 years, his family took care of him."

In recent years, more North American colleges have begun to perform land acknowledgements, which recognize the Indigenous people on whose unceded land their campuses were built centuries ago. But recent events show that talk is cheap.

A group of Mohawk women from the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation outside Montreal has taken legal action to prevent the expansion of two McGill University buildings on historically Mohawk land. This is also the site where the CIA’s MK-Ultra psychological experiments took place, in which unwilling test subjects were used in dystopian brainwashing and mind control experiments. The Mohawk group claims that the unmarked graves of children – victims of these experiments – lie beneath both the Royal Victoria Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute.

The Kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera, or Mohawk Mothers, presented their case to the Quebec Superior Court on May 30. They’re demanding a thorough investigation of the sites to collect evidence of unmarked graves. We spoke with Mother, activist and Mohawk Nation News founder kahentinetha about McGill’s refusal to return stolen Iroquois funds and why Canada’s “whole system will fall” when the Mothers’ case is heard in court.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Lakota Tony Black Feather 'American Flag represents racism, oppression and violation of Natural Law'

By Brenda Norrell 
Censored News
(Oct. 1, 2002) STRONGHOLD TABLE, S.D. Lakota elder Tony Black Feather told the United Nations that the American flag represents a racist nation that violates natural and spiritual laws, dishonors treaties and engages in a game plan of corporate greed.
In his statement delivered to the United Nations and distributed here on Stronghold Table, Black Feather pressed for disarmament and peace as President Bush pressed for war in Iraq.
Urging America to “come clean in the eyes of the world,” Black Feather said people often ask him about the red, white and blue of the American flag
“I tell them that the aboriginal Lakota people of this country look at this flag as a piece of red, white and blue cloth that stands for the foreign racist system that has oppressed Indigenous peoples for centuries.
