MNN. Apr. 19, 2014. O’ien’kwen:ton [hanging tobacco] is an elite part of the Warrior Society [Roti’skennen:kete]. They are also known as the “ghost warriors”. A bundle of fresh tobacco is tied and hung in the dark corners of the longhouse so they will stay green and almost invisible.
The men of this society secretly train to be close to the original duties of our ancestors to protect the people according to the Great Law of Peace. They go through rites to develop great mental and physical strength in peacetime and wartime. Only those who have the strength and power are selected to be part of this special elite force. Their bodies are painted in dark colors, red and yellow stripes are marked on their faces and their clothes blend in with the forest. When they are on maneuvers in the wilderness, they are a shadow that cannot be seen nor heard by the enemies.
They accompany the Ah’sera:kowa, War Chief, to face nations with the message to cease breaking the peace and hurting the people. After being given the message and told the words, the black wampum is dropped in front of enemy.
When they refuse to grab it and it hits the ground, the O’ien’kwen:ton appear out of the shadows, and smash in their heads with the war club. Then war with the Rotino’shonni:onwe begins.
O’ien’kwen:ton are always here in the spirit dimension to assist our men. They visit those who work against natural law. Prime Minister Harper and President Obama should consider well US President Thomas Jefferson’s warning to them: “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: his justice cannot sleep forever!”
President Obama decided rightly to cancel the oil pipeline on Great Turtle Island. We wonder if he will make the right decision to free Leonard Peltier. Enjoy the song while watching this excellent video on how our younger brother, President Obama, came to make the right decision. Video: “Obama convinced to make natural decision on pipeline”.
