MNN. 27 Dec. 2012. It was a fiendish plan to exterminate us. With our good minds we are going to dismantle it. There will be no world peace without free Indigenous Peoples who have regained all our possessions.
Throughout the world the “Idle No More” movement has united us and our supporters. To save our Mother Earth, the great natural power has awakened us to action.
Fear was the greatest weapon to control our lives. The secret rulers created artificial fear to make us think we are alone and to terrify us into submission. Science and technology found ways to bring us under control and to work for them as slaves. Methods were found to make us kill each other.
Science developed hate and anger of each other. A life of fear was made through images and sounds. Their mainstream media controls information and pop culture. In the televised version of reality, platinum blond hair, blue eyes and white skin were deemed to be superior. False dogma kept us divided. Our thinking and behavior were designed. Any light that came through was extinguished to make us think life was hopeless.
For hundreds of years we were kept in a state of confusion. Our minds, bodies and energies were poisoned. Toxins were put into everything we drank, breathed, wore and walked on. Drugs were given to us for entertainment and sicknesses we did not have. Our children were targeted to kill their minds, resulting in depression, mental and physical disorders and obesity.
The same bankers and corporations controlled all sides of governments. They prospered from war and death.
The system of Owistah [money] and accumulation of material goods kept us from connecting with our inner selves and to each other. it imprisoned us. We were diverted to seek pleasure and play games.
We are victims of genocide. Our children were stolen from us. Our communities are toxic dumps, unfit for habitation [Attawapiskat, Kachechewan, etc]. Colonial powers tried to kill us or disperse us from our inherent lands to steal the riches beneath them. Traditional People went underground to hide their ancient knowledge.
Our own people were recruited to help them by rewarding them with material things.
We always felt something was missing from our existence. We stood helpless as foreigners came onto our land and murdered us. We are shaking off these invaders. Our minds are free. We can’t go back to slavery.
We Indigenous People have the tools given to us by the great natural power to change this. We do not hate each other. We love each other. When we rise up together, they cannot stop us. We have no weapons. Only the truth. We will use our inherent knowledge to bring peace to the world.
The rest of the people may finally wake up and join their Indigenous brothers and sister, instead of singing like the Scare Crow in the Wizard of Oz: “I could wile away the hours, conferring with the flowers, consulting with the rain. And my head I’d be scratchin’, while my thoughts were busy hatchin’, if I only had a brain”.
