MNN. Nov. 6, 2017. We have lost 5 young people to accidents in Kahnawake over a two week period. They are all our children. Then two of our elders, 75 and 80 years old, passed away and were buried on the same day. They constantly searched to understand the original instructions from creation.
They never backed down. “We always have to be willing and able to fight. Those who are passive and chose not to fight are cowards. They are afraid of being called terrorists, of being humiliated, or going to prison.
Many who stood up and fought did go to prison, not for crimes but for standing up to prevent crimes against our people. Some were killed. They never give up on what they know is right according to the kaia-nere-kowa. They always defend and protect sovereignty.
kaia-nere-kowa does not promote violence to solve our issues. Our people need to be organized and prepared to protect every creature in creation, insects, plants, fish, animals and all life. Survival using our instincts is instilled in us by creation.
When some do not try to defend themselves, the rest of us are easy pickings for our enemies. We do not accept excuses that we are passive. Nature is not passive. We have to protect our people and children just as our ancestors did.
In the past people were put in coliseums so the lions could attack and eat them for entertainment. They prayed they would not be eaten. But they were. These intruders thrive on violence and blood sports.
We are using ceremonies and herbs to justify why we do nothing and ask the creator to fix it for us. We are supposed to give thanks for all that creation has provided. The creator did not protect our children from murder and sexual assault in residential school concentration camps. The creator did nothing when our women and girls are being kidnapped and killed. What are we doing to stop Canada and the US from putting our assimilated people on the fast track to total extinction?
Many have chosen to evade their responsibility to protect our land, our people and all life. If you don’t take responsibility, you have no rights. Don’t point fingers at warriors, AIM or anybody for what they did that might have gone wrong. What did you do?
Tell your children why they have no land while you are busy waiting for creator superman to solve your problems. You neglect your responsibility because you are weak. You criticize the strong ones who are willing to stand up to the best of their ability.
We make no excuses to do nothing. Those who do nothing are as guilty as the oppressors.
Our warriors are dying while the rest follow the pied piper off the cliff.
The late Fats Domino says we are ready, we are willing and we are able, so let’s rock and roll all night: “Well, I’m ready, I’m willing. And I’m able to rock and roll all night. I’m ready, I’m willing And I’m able to rock and roll all night. Come on pretty baby. We’re gonna rock, we’re gonna roll until the broad daylight.”
