MNN. Sept. 5, 2017. Our people talk about the time great turtle island was covered with “otsinonwa kowa, prehistoric mammals like the dinosaur. We roamed among these large creatures. So they could not kill us our grandfathers, the four winds, thunder, lightning and storms, destroyed them and put them in the earth.
Our ancestors knew that If they should ever come back to the surface they would cause great misery.
The white scientists theorized it was meteors, volanoes and earthquakes that extinguished them. Now they say it was a great electrical storm that put them beneath the earth.
Since the Europeans came to this land, these mammals which, formed into coal, oil, natural gases and minerals, are being disturbed from their resting places, exhumed onto the surface of the earth. Global warming, pollution of air, water and land are disintegrating the earth. Fossil fuel, which should stay in the earth, is creating havoc and killing everything natural.
In the ohenton kariwatekwen we remember and are thankful for what our grandfathers do for us to keep these mammals beneath the earth. They are supposed to stay there. The white man is totally disregarding violating nature. They are unleashing that which is supposed to remain undisturbed. The natural ores drove the white man crazy and made them rob, steal and murder each other and all life.
Mankind and all other life may become extinct. Plants, animals, birds and the natural world are in the process or have already disappeared.
Nature will survive in some form. We onkwe-hon-weh have known of this for thousands of year. The white man is aware but allows greed to overcome any respect for all life.
When the white man arrived on great turtle island, they got permits to steal our land on the condition they murdered us, disposed of our bodies and built their towns and cities over the graves. They ground up our bodies and mixed it with the soil to start their gardens. They plowed our bones into the soil.
This is one of their many methods to hide the bodies of 150 million murdered onkwe-hon-weh.
We survivors are the voices of our long dead ancestors.
Mi’kmag honour song for all of our people and those unwillingly sacrificed by the invaders:
