STOP KILLING OUR CHILDREN

 

Please post & distribute.

MNN. Feb. 9, 2018. Today the murderers of two of our children, Tina Fontaine and  Colten Boushie, are standing trial before their peers.

Today we don’t expect justice. The colonial Admiralty Law of the Seas system is designed to work in favor of the colonialists. Justice is a private business with courts, jails, prisons and a huge multitude of workers trained to prosecute us. The enemy justice system makes judgments against the true natural people placed here by creation.  

According to the teio-ha-teh, two row agreement between our people and the invaders, we do not judge the perpetrators. We formally petition their government to investigate and find out the wrong that has been committed. Their government has a duty to make things right and compensate our people. They will decide the punishment. We had no jails, no lawyers, prisons, poor houses, orphanages, old age homes or insane asylums. We use our minds and reasonableness according to the great peace.   

CANADAIGUA TREATY 1794 ARTICLE 7: Based on teio-ha-teh, two row relationship between us and our friends, allies and everyone on turtle island, a formal complaint is lodged against the government of the offending party to investigate the wrong that has been committed against our people. If the opposing party is guilty, the government will compensate our people and decide the punishment against their people.

They too will lodge a complaint to our people. If guilty, we will investigate, carry out the punishment and compensate them. Our goal is to make it right between us. Otherwise it will cause war.   

The treaty Between the United States of America and the Tribes of Indians Called the Six  Nations: “Lest the firm peace and friendship now established should be interrupted  by the misconduct of individuals, the United States and the Six Nations agree, that for injuries done by individuals, on either side, no private revenge or retaliation shall take place; but, instead thereof, complaint shall be made by the party injured, to the other; by  the Six  Nations  or any  of them,  to the President o  the United States [Prime Minister of Canada], or the superintendent by him [them] appointed; and by the superintendent, or other person appointed by the President [or Prime Minister], to the principal chiefs of the Six Nations, or of the Nation to which the offender belongs;

All misconduct or disagreements are dealt with in  this way.  

 

We the natural people have to exercise our own ways based on the kaia-nere-kowa, great peace, which covers all of turtle island. We are not criminalized or called terrorists because we are trying to protect all life on turtle island. 

The enemies must RESPECT the true natural people and all life here or return from hence you came.   

Come on, everybody, sing “Respect” along with Aretha Franklin.” What you want
Baby, I got it. What you need. Do you know I got it. All I’m askin’ Is for a little respect when you get home (just a little bit). Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home (Just a little bit) mister (just a little bit). I ain’t gonna do you wrong while you’re gone. Ain’t gonna do you wrong cause I don’t wanna. All I’m askin’ Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit). Baby (just a little bit) when you get home (just a little bit). Yeah (just a little bit)”.

MNN. June 24, 2013. Why did Kanienkehaka/Mohawk power break down? Our men were weakened by the deliberate social and political breakdown, alcoholism, war, poor physical and mental health, teachings of pacifism, movement restrictions, loss of lands and economic rights. Traditionally Haudenosaunee women speak out and question everything.  We are the inherent holders of the land for the coming generations. We create peace by regulating war. None can be called until the women try three times to achieve a peaceful solution. We appoint the warriors, define the conflict and negotiate peace. When the newcomers realized that Haudenosaunee chiefs acted on the recommendations of the women based on the consensus of the people, they set out to break these power bonds. A policy was developed to deal with men only on land, political and trade issues. 

Indigenous women face cultural & lifestyle changes. They dispense wisdom and reason.

Indigenous women face cultural & lifestyle changes. They still dispense wisdom and reason.

The tie to the earth is through the women. The men protect these connections. The strong female role as the foundation of Haudenosaunee society was uprooted. The male dominated hierarchical system took its toll on all the people. The invaders are educated to not hear or see us. Women as the progenitors of the soil were forced by policy to be subservient to the men. will not reform

European men felt uneasy about dealing with women, especially in relation to land and resource holdings. Indigenous female power bonds were a major obstacle. The matrilocal communal land holding system was targeted for destruction. A new regime of land held by a few foreign bankers and corporate entities was set in place to conform to the European hierarchical world view. 

To oppress our women is to oppress all of us. The “She No Speak” colonial system is rigid, punitive, demeaning and self-deprecating towards women. We are not supposed to question male authority. 

Europeans broke the women’ power through non-native religious influence and the Indian Act and Federal Indian Law passed by the colonists. These violations of the rule of law forced us in a subservient position to our men in our relations with the colonists. The major underpinnings of Kanienkehaka sovereignty were undermined.  

she no speakWe survived a holocaust. Our views, duties and responsibilities do not need to be validated by their foreign  tribal and band council Injun accomplices. The balance between men and women is the ultimate reason we are still here and an important people today. As Aretha Franklin points out: “I get tired [just a little bit], keep on trying [just a little bit]” even though everybody knows who we are! “Respect”
