MNN. Nov. 3, 2018. te-ka-ri-wa-iena-wakon. Calling all onkwehonweh, brothers, sisters, friends, allies, our families, young people and elders.
Come and learn. Let’s talk about the kaianerekowa, great peace and the tekeni teohateh [two row]. Let us open our minds so that together we can have mutual understanding. Let’s talk about unity and human rights.
MAY 19 TO 23, 2018 @ SIX NATIONS.
This is a peoples’ meeting. The invitation is open to everyone, including the chiefs, clan mothers and band councils. We have the minds to make good decisions. We are each te-wa-ta-tawi, we carry ourselves and have a right to meet to discuss whatever we want. Creation made us a free people. No one can dictate to us. This is a republic, which is rule by the people. Democracy is mob rule.
Let’s open our minds and listen to each other. According to kaianerekowa we cannot listen to rumors, gossip and hearsay concerning this gathering and our affairs. The great peace shows us how to reach an understanding. Come and see for yourself. Ask questions. Have your say. We want to hear what is on your mind.
There is only one version of the natural way. kaianerekowa teaches us not to fear the unknown, but to examine everything.
We are a calm people who sit, listen to each other and participate. Because we have differences of opinion is no reason to become enemies. Everyone’s voice needs to be heard to contribute to our well-being. We should search each other’s minds and come to an understanding. The more knowledge we acquire, the better decisions we will make together.
This is our responsibility for our children. Let’s end the confusion. Anyone with ideas who wants to help is welcome. The young people are welcome to be heard as they carry on the traditions. Strife can be dealt with using our clear minds.
SEE YOU AT OSWEGO.
MORE INFORMATION ON GATHERING, LODGING AND MAP SEE:
MNN. Oct. 28, 2018. Invaders are suffering from mass colonial alzheimers, ia-te-tse-ni-kon-ra-io-ten. Their brain feeds on lies. The USA [United States of Alzheimers] is eating itself from the inside. The world is finding out about the horrors they inflicted on us and our mother. It will stop. Everything has to be made right. INFO BELOW ON GATHERING AT 6 NATIONS, NOV. 19-23: https://mohawknationnews.com/blog/2018/10/04/gathering-6-nations-ohswekon-nov-19-23-2018/
“TO SURVIVE, WE MUST WORK COLLECTIVELY”.
To save themselves, the corporate world will continue to lie and try to force everyone to fear them and continue to believe their lies. Natives know creation, our mother and nature are based on total truth of our past, present and future. The truth is coming out about the mass slaughter of almost all life on turtle island.
INDIANS! WHO & WHAT ARE THEY? IA-TE-HON-TSE-NI-KON-RA-IERI, THE INVADER’S BRAIN DON’T WORK. THEY CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE STILL HERE!
The few who know will ask what they can do to makes things right. The rest will pretend to or have alzheimers to avoid guilt, responsibility or even knowledge of their atrocities.
tio-kwan-hok-sta is the circle of the families, the love that underlies native societies. All families are combined, to always work together, never to take up arms against each other and to survive together. te-kari-wa-ien-na-wakon means that we would link arms and always hold each other.
A gathering is happening in Oswego from November 19 to 23, 2018, to talk about our concerns on kanonshononni’onwe, the way of the people of the longhouse. Come with your thoughts, questions and ask for clarity. Your presence will make the agenda.
The world is invited. Let us stand together to stop the injustice and untruth.
IENIKONRIIO, A NATURAL MIND.
Buffy Sainte Marie sings about counterbalancing environmental greed: “Got Mother Nature on a luncheon plate. They carve her up and call it real estate. Want all the resources and all of the land. They make a war over it; they blow things up for it. ”
MNN. Oct. 13, 2018. ia-ta-tewa-ton-koton. We have not immersed ourselves into the corporate system. We cannot alienate ourselves from our birthright as the true natural people of turtle island. The invaders have no jurisdiction. We never gave them any. Their laws have no effect.
THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA DOING ITS JOB: “ANOTHER CRUMMY DECISION FOR OUR “INDIANS” THAT WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO MAKE!”
This decision is on laws they have no right to make. This decision by the Supreme Court of Canada affects those who have sold out to the false man-made law called the Indian act. They have no jurisdiction to make the Indian Act. Either way it has no precedent or binding affect on the onkwehonweh. It does not exist for anybody. Those of us who refuse know that no foreign government or corporation applies to us tewatatawi original people. They can’t make any law, thus there is nothing to talk about.
YOU NEVER WRONG A BROTHER IRON WORKER & YOU DON’T SEE ONE WRONGED.
The Indian Act “Indians” are citizens of a foreign company set up by the invaders and have lost their onkwehonweh birthright as a result. Canada has no jurisdiction to make a constitution. The corporation of Canada owns nothing. Their committees known as the Indian Act band council do their dirty work for them. The Queen cannot give anybody what does not belong to her. She and her colony have no dominion over us, our land or all life on turtle island. We true natural people never relinquished anything. This case is in a court set up by the invaders to rule upon laws they have no right to make. All their laws and court decisions are made without jurisdiction on turtle island. Every decision they’ve ever made is null and void. All laws made by the corporation of Canada [Parliament and US counterparts] are null and void.
WE ARE A FREE PEOPLE THAT OUR ANCESTORS BROUGHT INTO THIS WORLD.
The decision of the Supreme Court of Canada invaders does not interfere with us. Only those who willingly help the corporation to administer the genocide program, the pipe line and other devastation on our mother. Eliminating us and our culture is their plan.
Treaties give no rights. The invaders wanted treaties. We let them stay on our land according to our conditions. They broke them. Their agreement with is us is null and void. They are trespassing and must leave. We have the birthright to turtle island.
How dare the oppressors and their “criminal gang” dictate to us. We are from nature. We are real. They are paper made people. Their corporate laws and court decisions are man made fiction. Their institutions, rules and regulations are fake. New demands are constantly being made to keep their criminal gangs in business. The intruders never deal in good faith. Their own law states that if you take another’s property, you are committing a crime. The statute of limitations never ends. They will be held accountable.
The court lied to the Mikisew Crees of Alberta. The chief wants to know who he can cry to now! He wants to go back to the same court and stand before the enemy and expect justice. The same court of oppressors will rule against him again.
The court said the band councils are their boards and committees that have no rights except to do what they are told. They don’t have to consult them. Their job is to help the tyrants swindle their own families. A handful of invaders want to illegally decide the fate of millions of natural people.
They should be consulting with us about how they can follow the kaianerekowa, the only law of turtle island. Their judicial scams are designed to work in favor of the invading predators. A man is born stupid but he doesn’t have to stay that way.
Alibaba and the 40 thieves [Canada and US] are not sovereign. They don’t have one inch of our land and can never get it. These unlawful occupiers have no right to legislate laws to us. They own the willing members of their band council, national and territorial “Indian” sidekicks who have alienated their birthright.
The lawless make schemes called laws to steal from us. No man has the right to deny us our birthright which comes from creation. We have a winning hand which paper made corporations cannot defeat. They ignore truth and justice but it will always exist in the natural world.
When the band council puppets look to the invaders as their authority, they are letting them destroy us, our mother and all life. Like those who helped capture Geronimo, all the traitors will be rounded up and dealt with accordingly.
Today we don’t have barbed wire fences around us. We have reservation prisons administered by the military who run the colony.
The lawyers pledge allegiance to the very institutions and rules that oppress us. Their job is to tell us we have no rights. Then they haul us into court to receive more injustice. We are told to believe in something that does not exist in their system, justice and truth.
We can live on our land until they want it. Sir William Johnson told the King, “Any man that would dare to call the iroquois ‘subjects’ better have a good army at his back, because no sooner would those words be spoken, they would slit his throat, because the Iroquois do not consider themselves subjects of anyone. They are of their own”.
Our teachings, language, genetic memories and the kaianerekowa keep us strong. We are raised to take responsibility for our own actions. We are naturally free and can never be subject to unlawful rules made by the invaders. They never defeated us. They can only ask us how they shall live by the kaianerekowa. If they don’t, they must leave. The onkwehonweh demonstrated their right to be free on the island in 1990:
MNN. Oct. 10, 2018. Every year the intruders to turtle island celebrate the continuing genocide of the natural people. Christopher Columbus and Thanksgiving go together with the hysterical Black Friday shopping frenzy that breaks out to divert their attention on the annihilation of millions of onkwehonweh, the true natural people.
TE HON WANI SHOTON. NOW HE SMELLS IT!
Our kids were kidnapped and imprisoned in “Child Elimination Centers” called residential schools. They were kidnapped, tortured and burnt in stoves in the basement. The schools were an extension of the genocide policy which continues today.
A repressive regime of fake people was established that funds and carries out the genocide operation.
The invaders made rules on every aspect of our life. We suffered a soul sucking life and death for hundreds of years. Knowledge of our existence was almost totally eradicated by the invaders. These paper made people recruit the Indians to do their dirty work for them.
WHAT HARVEST? WHAT THANKS?
The state maintains extensive surveillance on us. We are out in the open on our land trying to survive.
We are nature. We will save each other. The world knows that Canada and the United States are murderers.
We are being held hostage. We are born free and will get our freedom.
The invaders came here to kill and exploit, not in peace. They failed miserably as a species on this planet. They are now masterminding their own extinction. Nature will make difficult decisions to ensure our survival.
A Native American Thanksgiving

THANKS, BUT NO THANKS. . .

MNN. Sept. 2018. Over 100 rotinoshonni [Iroquois] were viciously beaten by the New York State Police, as this video shows. The United States court system totally ignored and denied justice and truth from being presented.
ON MAY 8, 1997 WE STARTED A PEOPLES’ FIRE IN SUPPORT OF ROTINOSHONNI [IROQUOIS CONFEDERACY] OPPOSITION TO NEW YORK STATE’S ILLEGAL ATTEMPT TO COLLECT TAXES FROM THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF TURTLE ISLAND.
We have exhausted the entire United States court system for justice. Now we are serving an Application to the International Court of Justice in The Hague of 28 pages plus the annexes, the Gayanerekowa great law and video disk.
Each of the Onondaga 15 will provide oral presentations personally, and other witnesses will provide testimony in writing and orally to The International Court of Justice at The Hague and to the United Nations in New York City in support of this Application.
SUMMARY OF APPLICATION. THIS HAPPENED TO US.
TO: INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE
RE: APPLICATION, INSTITUTING PROCEEDINGS
Filed in the Registry of the Court
Case by 15 sovereign onkwehonweh [the original peoples of turtle island] of the rotinoshonni, Iroquois Confederacy, concerning grave Injustices. Reason: No Equal Justice Under Law, No Due Process and No Fair Hearing/No Fair Trial in the United States court system for the onkwehonweh.
(Andrew Jones, sovereign, et al. [“Onondaga 15”] vs. United States)
To: Mr. Philippe Couvreur, Registrar, International Court of Justice, Peace Palace, The Hague Netherlands.
JOIN US AT THE WORLD COURT.
THE SOVEREIGN ONKWEHONWEH
This Application Instituting Proceedings is made by the following 15 sovereign onkwehonweh [hereinafter “Onondaga 15”] vs. United States:
Andrew Jones (sovereign), Robert E. Bucktooth, Jr. (sovereign), Cheryl Bucktooth, (sovereign), Robert Bucktooth, III (sovereign), Debby Jones (sovereign), Karen Jones (sovereign), Nikki Jones (sovereign),karoniakata Jones (sovereign), Shawn Jones (sovereign), kahentinetha (sovereign), dyhyneyyks, aka Alfred Logan, Jr. (sovereign), tekarontakeh (sovereign), Ross John (sovereign), Ronald Jones, Jr. (sovereign), Nadine O’Field/Ganonhweih, fka Nadine Bucktooth (sovereign),
APPLICATION MEMORIAL BY EACH OF THE 15 SOVEREIGN onkwehonweh APPLICANTS, INDIGENOUS PEOPLES [ORIGINAL PEOPLES OF TURTLE ISLAND] OF THE rotinoshonni, IROQUOIS CONFEDERACY [“Onondaga 15”], PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 45 OF THE RULES OF COURT:
THE FIRST QUESTION IS HAS THE ORDER EVER BEEN RESCINDED TO STOP THE ONGOING POLICY OF EXTERMINATING THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF TURTLE ISLAND:
NYS CONTINUES GENERAL WASHINGTON’S ORDER FOR THE GENOCIDE OF ONKWEHONWEH!
On May 31, 1779, General George Washington, who later became the first President of the United States, wrote the following to his Major General John Sullivan [Annex 9, Annex 1 for electronic review]:
The expedition you are appointed to command is to be directed against the hostile tribes of the six nations [Iroquois Confederacy] of Indians, with their associates and adherents. The immediate objects are the total destruction and devastation of their settlements and the capture of as many prisoners of every age and sex as possible. It will be essential to ruin their crops now in the ground and prevent their planting more. . . . But you will not by any means listen to (any) overture of peace before the total ruin of their settlements is effected. . . .
This command was carried out and continued as United States policy thereafter to this day and was never rescinded.
To carry out this order, the United States set up the infamous prison system called “reservations”. We are killed and separated from each other throughout turtle island where the United States tries to silence, control, impoverish, murder and deny our natural existence as intended by creation.
HEY, WASHINGTON, IT’S TIME TO RECIND THE GENOCIDE.
iontonnheton – the existence of natural life.
kaianerekowa – the great path of peace.
kasastenserakowa sahoiera – the great natural power.
onkwehonweh – the original people of the land.
onowarekeh – turtle island.
rotinoshonni – the people who make the long house, Iroquois Confederacy.
sahoieren – creation.
tekeni teiohateh – the two row wampum.
tekentiokwanhoksta – Circle of 49 original families that formed the basis of rotinoshonni.
tewatatawi – we control our life [sovereign].
tekanehronkwatserah – the mind of nature.
IT IS NATURAL FOR PEOPLES TO DEAL WITH THEIR TRAITORS.
The United States strikes by any means to stop us from surviving as free natural people. They bribe “Indians” who become their citizens or agents to help carry out the policy of genocide. These traitors pledge allegiance to the United States through the Federal Indian Law. According to the kaianerekowa when our people serve as a United States citizen or agent implementing the genocide policies, they are traitors and alienate their birthright as true native people, tehonatonkoton.
The policy of physical and mental extermination of original native peoples continues. Prisons remain. Traitors remain. Poverty remains.
We sought justice in the United States court system related to violations of our human rights by the New York State Police. We received no justice, leading to this Application.
We 15 sovereign onkwehonweh request The International Court of Justice at The Hague to review and expose to the world the United States’ violations and to provide justice in this case. The kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, is the law of turtle island since time immemorial. We 15, men, women, children, and elders, were arrested, viciously beaten, injured, and terrorized by the New York State Police troopers at our peaceable gathering. The United States court system deliberately delayed and denied justice for each of us for over two decades in this case so that these troopers would avoid responsibility for their criminal actions. [Video of beating Annex 1 of this Application, infra]. This computer disc includes everything in this Application and Annex Record, Annexes 1 thru 8, for review electronically. The kaianerekowa [also gayanerekowa], the great law of peace, is set forth in Annex 8 of this Application,infra.
kaianerekowa is orally passed on from the ancestors of the onkwehonweh in our language, songs, ceremonies, wampums and stories that explains nature. See the video oral presentations [6 hours] that have been linked to Mohawk Nation News at Annex 8 that explain this very complex translation from Mohawk into English.
SYMOLS OF JURISDICTION/SOVEREIGNTY: AYONWATHA BELT, TEKENTIOKWANHOKSTA & TEKENI TEIOHATEH
Each of us is sovereign [Article 40, infra, and Black’s Law Dictionary, infra]. Jurisdiction and sovereignty are based on the kaianerekowa, the great peace, the law of turtle island, and the tekeni teiohateh, the two-row wampum. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “sovereign” as “a person, body, or state in which independent and supreme authority is vested.”
Self-determination is defined as tewatatawi, “the process by which a person controls their own life.” The onkwehonweh in this case are sovereign through their culture, traditions, and principles from time immemorial, and through the kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum. [Annex 8, Annex 5, Annex 1].
Article 3 and 6 with the other Articles and preamble recognizes that each of the individual indigenous [original native] peoples here are sovereign:Indigenous peoples have the right to self-determination, to freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
Article 92 of the United Nations Charter provides: The International Court of Justice shall be the principal judicial organ of the United Nations.
United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Article 40, provides:
TEKANERONKWATSERA IS THE STRONGEST MEDICINE IN THE WORLD.
Indigenous peoples have the right to access to and prompt decision through just and fair procedures for the resolution of conflicts and disputes with States or other parties, as well as to effective remedies for all infringements of their individual and collective rights. Such a decision shall give due consideration to the customs, traditions, rules and legal systems of the indigenous peoples concerned and international human rights.
Article 1 must be enforced by this International Court of Justice: Indigenous peoples have the right to the full enjoyment, as a collective or as individuals, of all human rights and fundamental freedoms as recognized in the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and international human rights law.
Article 5 bolsters this Court’s jurisdiction in this case, providing:Indigenous peoples have the right to maintain and strengthen their distinct political, legal, economic, social and cultural institutions, while retaining their right to participate fully, if they so choose, in the political, economic, social and cultural life of the State.
Article 45 of the Rules of Court, in the case of Jones, et al, v. Parmley, et al., Supreme Court of the United States No. 17-928 [Annex 3 and Annex 4 below], provides we sovereign rotinoshonni the right to institute proceedings in the International Court of Justice at The Hague, against the United States and its court system. The proceedings will be filed in the registry of the Court in October 2018.
Each of us sovereign onkwehonwe make this Application to this Court with a winning hand, which is nature. We are all free. All life is free. Nature is.
The World Court has man-made unnatural rules that are in conflict with the natural law of turtle island. Natural law provides natural justice. The World Court claims to provide this. The Charter of the United Nations and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [107th plenary meeting of The General Assembly, 13 September 2007] claims to support each of the sovereign indigenous peoples appearing in this World Court.
We are not part of the corporate Statute of the International Court of Justice. We do not deliberately or knowingly join anything artificial or unnatural, like a corporation. We are created as one with all natural life. The United Nations claims to expressly support us in being naturally sovereign through its numerous Annex preamble paragraphs and pursuant to its Articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 18, 33, and 40 thru 46 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [Annex 6, Annex 1]. Self-determination for all life comes from nature. We are born naturally sovereign. The World Court, existing only through artificial man-made rules, has been set up as “the principle judicial organ of the United Nations” and as the last avenue for justice in the corporate judicial system that permeates the world. The buck stops there. But not in nature.
Article 33 of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples concedes this:
Indigenous peoples have the right to determine their own identity or membership in accordance with their customs and traditions.
Indigenous peoples have the right to determine the structures and to select the membership of their institutions in accordance with their own will.
The kaianerekowa and tekeni teohatehi guide us.
Our sovereignty in this case is confirmed at Article 34 of the UN Declaration related to indigenous [original] peoples: Indigenous peoples have the right to promote, develop and maintain their institutional structures and their distinctive customs, spirituality, traditions, procedures, practices and, in the cases where they exist, judicial systems or customs, in accordance with international human rights standards.
Article 35 bolsters our sovereignty: Indigenous peoples have the right to determine the responsibilities of individuals to their communities.
The United Nations acknowledges that nature has determined that each of us is naturally sovereign through its Articles 34 and 35, and the other Articles in its Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
For this case we consent to this Court’s limited jurisdiction to hear this case pursuant to Article 38, paragraph 5 of the Rules of Court. We are presenting this Application with our clan signs being witnessed, pursuant to Article 38, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court.
NATURE IS OUR AGENT.
We sovereign onkwehonweh act without agents as we are from and guided by the natural world. We live in peace, harmony, and balance with nature with respect for everyone and everything.
States are corporations that exist only through unnatural man-made fictional rules. States cannot be naturally authentic. They exist in this Court only through an authentic agent. [Article 38, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court]. The agent must be authenticated by this Court to act for non-authentic States. We are naturally authentic and don’t need an agent.
“REMEMBER THE ‘INDIAN RING’ WHEN WE WERE FAKE ‘INDIAN AGENTS” WHO REPORTED TO THE MILITARY? THE INDIAN DETAIL ARE TODAY’S AGENTS FOR THE UNAUTHENTIC STATE !”
The United States only exists on paper and comes alive only through interaction with corporate certified agents deemed as human beings. We are sovereign by just being born. The United States does not naturally exist, as such cannot own land, cannot have a native language of its own. It has no natural tie to turtle island. Americans need a corporate paper for everything they do. We onkwehonweh are the first to represent ourselves as true natural parties in this World Court. The UN is the leader of the unauthentic.
Similarly, only members of the Supreme Court of the United States Bar are allowed to appear before the Supreme Court. Real natural parties cannot appear by the Supreme Court’s own Rules. The United States politicians and the rich and powerful can use the Supreme Court, leaving the rest on the sidelines.
The United States is comprised of settlers who invaded our land, turtle island, which cannot be ceded by humanity. The United States makes existence of nature and natural people inhuman. See tekarontakeh’s words that explain this [Annex 5 at transcript pages 9 thru 21, Annex 2, Annex 1]. [Text of words of each of the Onondaga 15 Applicants to this Court is set forth in Annex 2 of this Application, infra, and audio recordings of the words can be heard on the computer disc attached to Annex 1 of this Application, infra.]
Our existence is instilled in us through oral history placed on wampums and in our memory. kaianerekowa, the great peace, is the inherent tewatatawi, how we are to carry ourselves on turtle island and throughout our existence. The natural world creates the path by which we are to live. Our songs, ceremonies, stories and creation tie us to natural life and forces of our mother earth.
The International Court of Justice protects the predatory system that is attempting to rule the World by force. We natural people are imprisoned and controlled by the corporate bullying system.
Each of the 15 sovereign Applicants submit this Application Instituting Proceedings. According to Article 40, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the International Court of Justice, and Articles 38 and 45 of the Rules of Court, Jurisdiction of the Court is found in Article 36, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the International Court of Justice:
The jurisdiction of the Court comprises all cases which the parties refer to it and all matters specially provided for in the Charter of the United Nations or in treaties and conventions in force.
“Justice and truth ” purport to be the cornerstone of the foundation of the Charter of the United Nations in protecting human rights for everyone worldwide. In this case, we come to the World Court seeking “justice and truth” through the Charter of the United Nations and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [Annex 6 here, infra, and pursuant to Articles 33 and 40 thru 46 of its Rules of Court].
“The Statute of the International Court of Justice, A Commentary [Second Edition], provides instructive comments on the procedure, edited by Andreas Zimmermann, Christian Tomuschat, Karin Oellers-Frahm, Christian J. Tams, Assistant Editor Maral Kashgar, and Assistant Editor David Diehl [Oxford University Press] (2012), at page 1092:
When dealing with Art. 43 [of the Statute of the International Court of Justice: “The procedure shall consist of two parts: written (memorials through the Registrar) and oral”], it should not be underestimated that all procedure before the Court is dominated by the fact that the litigants are sovereign states that do not lightly accept outside interference in their affairs, especially when that interference touches upon major, if not vital interests of theirs. Questions of procedure before the Court therefore, by definition, cannot be approached on the same basis as litigation before even the highest domestic court.
In the World Court substance controls procedure. We the natural people are the substance and have the winning hand – nature – which always beats the house of procedure. The only way to deactivate our winning hand is to prevent our playing it in their man-made control system.
The United States District Court relied on Onondaga sovereignty when it quashed subpoenas during the trial. The motion and the hearing transcript are provided from the District Court’s proceedings in Annex 5 and Annex 1 [computer disc] to this Application, infra.
This Application is endorsed by the family sign of each indigenous [original] peoples of the Onondaga 15 Applicants, and will be filed with the Registrar, along with a certified copy of the original pursuant to Article 52, paragraphs 1 and 2, of the Rules of Court. The court did allow us to present evidence regarding our sovereignty.
Article 18 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples applies here and at every level of the United States court system, and was violated throughout the past 21 years: Indigenous peoples have the right to participate in decision-making in matters [of this International Court of Justice] which would affect their rights, through representatives chosen by themselves in accordance with their own procedures, as well as to maintain and develop their own indigenous decision-making institutions. Our kaianerekowa and two-row wampum were ignored.
A certified copy of this Application will be served on the following:
The President of the United States, pursuant to the two-row wampum and the Canandaigua Treaty 1794, that the United States signed;
The Supreme Court of the United States;
The United Nations.
MAN-MADE LAWS CAN NEVER BEAT NATURE!
On February 16, 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States denied our Petition for a Writ of Certiorari [Annex 4] at the Court’s Friday morning conference of the 9 Justices. It was one of 392 similar Petitions scheduled that morning. This time limitation only allowed case names to be called and and then denied without review, debate and reasons.
Our Petition for Rehearing [found at Annex 3 below] was summarily denied by the Supreme Court on April 2, 2018. Every level of the United States Justice System denied us justice, due process, and a fair hearing/trial. We hope the World Court will provide us with justice and truth. [Article 18 of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (Annex 6, Annex 1)].
On May 18, 1997, [21 years ago] the New York State troopers viciously attacked us, our friends, and our allies at a ceremonial gathering of the rotinoshonni. We each commenced a Civil Rights action in the United States District Court against approximately 125 New York State Police troopers of the racially profiled “I-81 Indian Detail.” The troopers violated the First Amendment [peaceable assembly] and the Fourth Amendment [excessive force] rights under the Constitution of the United States. The attached video exhibit [at Annex 1 and on YouTube and the internet] clearly shows the actual violations of our basic human rights. On October of 2016, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the police. Our appeal [set forth at Annex 4 below] describes the unfair trial proven from actual District Court trial transcripts. The Judges of The Hague can review the denial to question witnesses, present our cases to the Jury, and where Judge [now Justice] Sotomayor’s law of the case supporting us was kept from the Jury. The United States Court of Appeals rubber-stamped the injustice. [Annex 4, and at Appendix A of Annex 4]. The Supreme Court of the United States confirmed the injustice. [Annex 4, Annex 3 [6 pages of detailed injustice by the Supreme Court], and Annex 1].
All documents and docket entries in the three courts are available through the links found at Annex 7 of this Application, infra, including all trial transcripts found electronically in the docket of the District Court.
Hey, Ambulance Chasers, we needed personal injury lawyers, not greedy class action suit shysters.
Without informing us, the District Court allowed our lawyers to dump us after 17 years of representation, discovery, and preparation for trial. We had to conduct our jury trial ourselves. This tactic by the District Court ensured that we could not get a fair trial [set out in Annex 4, and at Appendix C of Annex 4, and Annex 1, infra.]
At the conference of the 9 Justices on February 16, 2018, Justice Sotomayor recused herself from the decision in the United States Supreme Court without giving a reason, violating our statutory right to waive her recusal. [Annex 4, and at Appendix B of Annex 4]. Judge Sotomayor wrote that the troopers could not defend their vicious attack on us in this case. At the subsequent rehearing on April 2, 2018, Justice Sotomayor once again recused herself and violated our statutory right to waive her recusal. We had no further recourse in the United States justice system, leading to this Application. [Annex 3 and Annex 1]. The Petition for a Writ of Certiorari, Waivers of Responses, and Order denying the Petition are set forth at Annex 4 and Annex 1, infra. Article 18 of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
HEY, WORLD COURT. EVERYTHING ON EARTH IS TO BE SHARED EQUALLY BETWEEN EVERYBODY.
ARTICLE 34 OF THE DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES PROVIDES:
The United States court system violated Article 34 by not allowing us to present our customs, spirituality, traditions, procedures, practices, our kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the two-row wampum.

Order and instructions for total annihilation of rotinoshonni [Iroquois Confederacy] from General [future first United States President] George Washington to his Major General John Sullivan on May 31, 1779;
Each of us is sovereign as the natural original indigenous peoples of turtle island. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “sovereign” as “a person, body, or state in which independent and supreme authority is vested.” We are guided by the kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum, that provides natural justice. Annex 8, Annex 5, and Annex 1, Annex 2.
Over 20 years we proved that the United States justice system does not exist for us. We are asking The International Court of Justice to review and expose this injustice, inherent limits on justice and to tell the whole truth. The courts of the United States are foreign artificial man-made corporations imposed upon us by force. The colonial justice system of the United States courts have no jurisdiction over us, the native people of turtle island. Intervention by The International Court of Justice at the Hague is required in this case. For over 20 years in this case the United States court system protected the criminals. We have taken and exhausted all avenues available to us in the United States system. That system refuses any further filings in our case. Our experience is that justice is limited and the onkwehonweh are excluded. The corporate justice system is about fighting over possessions. kaianerekowa is about harmony with creation and has the tools to create balance with nature.
IS NATURE’S SUPREME COURT.
We request the World Court at The Hague to review and expose the injustice and failure to present the truth of the United States court system in this 20 year old case. The kaianerekowa, the great peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum, is the true and only tewatatawi of turtle island. All colonial constitutional and corporate laws and structures of the United States are foreign. These unnatural United States legal systems are based upon a foundation of greed and power that is contrary to our living in harmony and balance with nature. The unnatural United States legal systems were never recognized by the original peoples. We request that the World Court recognize that the United States has no jurisdiction over native people of turtle island. We request that the World Court accept that the United States is subject to kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum.
Today each of the 15 sovereign onkwehonweh [Onondaga 15] requests justice from the World Court in this case pursuant to the Charter of the United Nations and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The United States has never rescinded its order for the total annihilation of indigenous peoples on turtle island. The deliberate injustice by the United States court system over the past 21 years in this case continues the United States quest to exterminate indigenous peoples on turtle island.

Pine needles fall from the trees and return to the earth to continue their life. We will never die when we uphold the kaiaranerekowa. Babies are born and people pass. tekentiokwanhoksteh 49 families remain.
WOW! We’re in The Hague to get us some justice! Mercy of the Court sings about the United States Court system. “Throw yourself on the mercy of the court. It’s a blessing. It’d s downright dirty curse. Secret handshakes. Smoky backroom deals. You are a human being with all these human fears. Beg forgiveness. Alleviate your health. The bottom of their heart will grant you the bottom of the well.”
IN THE UNITED NATION’S OWN WORDS, WARRANTING US A HEARING:
THE FOLLOWING PREAMBLE PARAGRAPHS IN THE UN DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE establish why our case requires a remedy from the International Court of Justice, the principle judicial organ of the United Nations:
Guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, and good faith in the fulfillment of the obligations assumed by States in accordance with the Charter,
Affirming that indigenous peoples are equal to all other peoples, while recognizing the right of all peoples to be different, to consider themselves different, and to be respected as such,
Affirming further that all doctrines, policies and practices based on or advocating superiority of peoples or individuals on the basis of national origin or racial, religious, ethnic, or cultural differences are racist, scientifically false, legally invalid, morally condemnable and socially unjust,
Reaffirming that indigenous peoples, in the exercise of their rights, should be free from discrimination of any kind,
Concerned that indigenous peoples have suffered from historic injustices as a result of, inter alia, their colonization and dispossession of their lands, territories and resources, thus preventing them from exercising, in particular, their right to development in accordance with their own needs and interests,
Recognizing also the urgent need to respect and promote the rights of indigenous peoples affirmed in treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements with States,
Welcoming the fact that indigenous peoples are organizing themselves for political, economic, social and cultural enhancement and in order to bring to an end all forms of discrimination and oppression wherever they occur,
Considering that the rights affirmed in treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements between States and indigenous peoples are, in some situations, matters of international concern, interest, responsibility and character,
Considering also that treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements, and the relationship they represent, are the basis for a strengthened partnership between indigenous peoples and States,
Acknowledging that the Charter of the United Nations, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, as well as the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, affirm the fundamental importance of the right to self-determination of all peoples, by virtue of which they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
Bearing in mind that nothing in this Declaration may be used to deny any peoples their right to self-determination, exercised in conformity with international law,
Convinced that the recognition of the rights of indigenous peoples in this Declaration will enhance harmonious and cooperative relations between the State and indigenous peoples, based on principles of justice, democracy, respect for human rights, non-discrimination and good faith,
Encouraging States to comply with and effectively implement all their obligations as they apply to indigenous peoples under international instruments, in particular those related to human rights, in consultation and cooperation with the peoples concerned,
Emphasizing that the United Nations has an important and continuing role to play in promoting and protecting the rights of indigenous peoples,
Believing that this Declaration is a further important step forward for the recognition, promotion and protection of the rights and freedoms of indigenous peoples and in the development of relevant activities of the United Nations system in this field,
Recognizing and reaffirming that indigenous individuals are entitled without discrimination to all human rights recognized in international law, and that indigenous peoples possess collective rights which are indispensable for their existence, well-being and integral development as peoples,
Recognizing that the situation of indigenous peoples varies from region to region and from country to country and that the significance of national and regional particularities and various historical and cultural backgrounds should be taken into consideration,
Solemnly proclaims the following United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a standard of achievement to be pursued in a spirit of partnership and mutual respect.
MNN. SEPT. 11, 2018.Yes, we pushed this case for over 21 years.
[ABOVE: THE ONONDAGA15 WALKING OUT OF YET ANOTHER UNJUST U.S. KANGEROO COURT EXPERIENCE.]
In the case of Jones et al. v. Parmley, et al, No. 17-928, the sovereign Onondaga 15 of the rotinoshonni, Iroquois Confederacy, are instituting proceedings in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, against the United States and its justice system. It is pursuant to Article 45 of the Rules of Court. It will be filed in the registry of the Court in September 2018.
For us, jurisdiction and sovereignty are based on the kaianerekowa, the law of turtle island, which supercedes the United States court system.
We, the Onondaga 15, request The International Court of Justice at The Hague to review the injustice of the United States court system in this 20 year old case. The Onondaga 15 have proven they can get no justice in the United States court system. Only the kaianerekowa, great law, can provide justice.
JURISDICTION TO BE CITED IS AS FOLLOWS:
We know when something is wrong. Each of us sovereign onkwehonweh’onwe, the people of the land forever, make this Application to this Court based upon nature. We are as one with nature and guided by the truth found in the great law. Our experience proves that the US constitution does not provide justice through its court system.
In this corporate created court, the man-made rules are manipulated so that the corporate court always wins and the rest lose, no matter how just is their case.
The World Court has to be careful on this issue because their man-made rules could be in conflict with the natural law of the land. Natural law provides natural justice. The World Court purports to provide this. Our great law does provide it.
None of us is a part of the corporate Statute of the International Court of Justice. We do not deliberately or knowingly join anything artificial or unnatural, like a corporation. We are created as one with all natural life. The United Nations purports to support us in being naturally sovereign through Articles 3, 4, 18, 33, and 40 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Self-determination for all life comes from nature. We are all naturally sovereign. The World Court existing only through artificial man-made rules, has been set up as the last avenue for justice in the corporate judicial system that permeates the world. The corporate buck stops at the World Court. But true justice will only be found in nature.
Today we consent to this Court’s limited jurisdiction to hear this case pursuant to Article 38, paragraph 5 of the Rules of Court. All natural life is sovereign. We seek justice by presenting this Application with our signs, pursuant to Article 38, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court.
We sovereign onkwehonweh act without agents as we are from the natural world. States are corporations that exist through unnatural man made fictional rules. They require corporate agents to exist in this Court to make final decisions on matters that come before them. In Article 38, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court, the agent must be authenticated by this Court to act for states that do not naturally exist. The United States is comprised of settlers who invaded our land, turtle island, which cannot be ceded by humanity. The United States makes existence of nature and natural people difficult and almost impossible. See Tekarontake’s words that explain this.
Hey, NYS Indian Detail and US court system, you should not have done this to us:
Our existence is instilled in us through oral history placed on wampums and in our memory. kaianerekowa, the great peace, is the inherent tewetatawi, how we are to carry ourselves on turtle island and throughout our existence. The natural world creates the path by which we are to live. Our songs, ceremonies, stories and creation tie us to natural life and forces of our mother earth.
The International Court of Justice protects the predatory system that attempts to rule the World by force. We natural people are imprisoned and controlled by the current corporate system, which has denied us justice for over 20 years in this case.
According to Article 40, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the International Court of Justice, and Articles 38 and 45 of the Rules of Court, each of the 15 sovereign Applicants submit this Application Instituting Proceedings. Jurisdiction of the Court is found in Article 36, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the International Court of Justice which provides:
“The jurisdiction of the Court comprises all cases which the parties refer to it and all matters specially provided for in the Charter of the United Nations or in treaties and conventions in force.”
“Justice” purports to be the cornerstone of the foundation of the Charter of the United Nations in protecting human rights for everyone worldwide. In this case, despite “Equal Justice Under Law” written above the entrance of the Supreme Court of the United States in Washington, we sovereign onkwehonweh have suffered “injustice” in the United States court system. Historically this system has been violently imposed and maintained on us and our land. Having been treated unjustly throughout the court system, we come to the World Court seeking “justice” through the Charter of the United Nations, and through the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples set forth in Annex 6 here, and pursuant to Articles 33 and 40 through 46 of its Rules of Court.
Regarding the procedure of the Court, the following comment is instructive from the treatise entitled “The Statute of the International Court of Justice, A Commentary [Second Edition], edited by Andreas Zimmermann, Christian Tomuschat, Karin Oellers-Frahm, Christian J. Tams, Assistant Editor Maral Kashgar, and Assistant Editor David Diehl [Oxford University Press] (2012), at page 1092:
When dealing with Art. 43 of the Statute of the International Court of Justice; “The procedure shall consist of two parts: written [memorials through the Registrar] and oral”], it should not be underestimated that all procedure before the Court is dominated by the fact that the litigants are sovereign states that do not lightly accept outside interference in their affairs, especially when that interference touches upon major, if not vital interest of theirs. Questions of procedure before the Court therefore, by definition, cannot be approached on the same basis as litigation before even the highest domestic court.
In the World Court substance controls procedure. We the natural people are the substance and have the winning hand, nature, which always beats the house of procedure. The only way to deactivate our winning hand is to not let us play it in their man-made control system. We ask the World Court to fairly consider our application.
This Application is endorsed by the sign of each of the Onondaga 15 Applicants, and will be filed with the Registrar, along with a certified copy of the original pursuant to Article 52, paragraphs 1 and 2, of the Rules of Court.
If the World Court denies us justice, we will turn to the great law to provide us true justice.
A certified copy of this Application will be served on the following:
The President of the United States, pursuant to the two-row wampum and the Canandaigua Treaty 1794 that the United States signed;
The Supreme Court of the United States;
The United Nations.
After 20 years of injustice in the United States court system, the 15 sovereign onkwehonweh seek justice from the World Court.
We put our sign to this application: Andrew Jones, Robert E. Bucktooth, Jr., Cheryl Bucktooth, Robert Bucktooth, Debby Jones, Karen Jones, Nikki Jones, Karoniakata Jones, Shawn Jones, kahentinetha, Dyhyneyyks, Tekarontakeh, Ross John, Ronald Jones, Jr., Nadine O’Field/Ganonhweih, aka Nadine Bucktooth.
Disturbed sings about the land of confusion that faces us and that we have to all make right: “This is the world we live in. And these are the hands we’re given. Use them and let’s start trying To make it a place worth living in. II remember long ago When the sun was shining And all the stars were bright all through the night. In the wake up this madness, as I held you tight So long ago. I won’t be coming home tonight. My generation will put it right. We’re not just making promises That we know we’ll never keep.”
MNN. JULY 14, 2018. Yes, in 1990 we unwrapped the corporate ropes from our necks! “On July 11th 1990, the Surete du Quebec [Quebec Provincial Police] opened fire with automatic guns and tear gas on kahnienkehaka [Mohawk] men, women and children. The Mohawks had been protesting the town of Oka’s plans to expand a golf course over a burial ground and common native land called The Pines kanehsaktake. Nearby Mohawks of kahnawake responded very quickly to fellow Mohawks of kanehsatake by blocking the Mercier Bridge, which connects the southshore to the island of Montreal.
TURTLE ISLAND WILL ALWAYS BE THE HOMELAND OF THE ONKWEHONWEH!
“The world watched in amazement while a small nation faced the combined fire power of the Canadian Armed Forces, the SQ and the Royal Mounted Police.
“It was a fight for Mohawk identity and land against the oppressive designs of a modern nation state. The stand off after 78 days came to an end.
“The Quebec and Canadian governments maintained to the end their position that the Mohawk defenders were criminals and terrorists who threatened the public security of all. Out of this perspective Canada and Quebec quickly brought Mohawks defenders to trial on criminal charges.
“The first trial is the subject of this book, which starkly shows the continuing conflicts in perspectives between the Mohawk people and the Canadian and Quebec governments. The Mohawks transcended the boundaries set up by Quebec and Canada under a European nation-state model.
“Lasagna, from kahnawake, Noriega and 20-20, from akwesasne, were caught up in the events with their people in kanehsatake/Oka. The three were ordinary Mohawk men who found themselves in the middle of a fight for identity, recognition and a war against oppression by the Canadian and Quebec governments. They maintained their silence throughout the trial, a statement of their non-compliance with the use of coercion, threats and force of arms against the Mohawk Nation. . . . .

MNN. June 4, 2018. Fooling with mother nature can be dangerous. One non-native who just got her fake “Indian” status card became the chief of her newly created tribe. She was having a party. Suddenly she dropped dead. Karma’s a bitch!
ONLY OUR MOTHER KNOWS!
The Canadian government is a corporation which passed the Indian Act that defines who is an Indian. White women who married Indians became enrolled as Indians with Indian Affairs. Anyone not qualified who carried a fake Indian status card was criminally charged. Impersonation is a crime under the Criminal Code of Canada. It’s fraud
The corporation of Canada suppressed our onkwehonweh [true natural people of turtle island] identity so the invaders could steal turtle island and our identity. The corporation created “status Indians”, forced English or French names on us, stole our children [which they still do] and placed us in POW camps called ‘reserves’. The Indian agent was the warden who watched our every move. To be free or get a job or marry out, we had to voluntarily or involuntarily enfranchise. In fact, our identity comes from creation when we live according to the kaianerekowa, the great good path.
TIME TO LEARN TO ASSERT OUR IDENTITY. YOUR VIEWS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED. KAIANEREKOWA GREAT PEACE IS FOR ALL. Contact Facebook: @ kahehtio whte lyze
The Golden Age Club is on River Road across from the Legion. Ask around.
Back in 2006 Joan Holmes manufactured paper Algonquins. She set up a table in the mall or at the metro station or at some public place. She recruited people to become corporate Indians. Non-native people impersonating Algongquins are now Indians who are invited to negotiate land claims. Some even issue statements on behalf of their newly created tribe.
An onkwehonweh has the right to self identify anywhere on turtle island or anywhere in the world without foreign identity cards issued by the invaders. We know who we are.
Judy Garland shows us some racial stereotyping by Hollywood about who and how is an Indian: “. . .Like the Seminoles, Navajos, Kickapoo, like those Indians, I’m an Indian too . . .”.
MNN. July 3, 2018. On July 4 US independence day, think about those who struggle for justice on turtle island. Remember this beating on May 18, 1997 of the onondaga by the I-81 INDIAN DETAIL of the New York State Police?
The Onondaga15 have taken this case through the entire justice system of the United States to prove there is no justice for us. We are now taking this case to The Hague. tekarontakeh will present this statement to the International Court of Justice at The Hague in the Netherlands. [No. 17-928 in the Supreme Court of the United States, Jones v. Parmley].
Sego. My name is tekarontake. I’m a kanionkehaka, that people know as Mohawks. I’m 65 years old. I was raised in the way of our old people and the way that our people have always taught us, to know who we are, what we represent, where we stand in today’s world. I am a full speaker in our language. I also learned how to speak English, which you can hear how I am addressing you today.
Over 500 years ago people came from across the ocean to our land, to our home. They had these ideas in their mind that they were a superior people, that they had the right to come and kill, rob, try to enslave us, abuse us in any way imaginable. This has been done. There have been atrocities spoken of in different parts of the world. But none compares to what has happened here in the Western Hemisphere.
Though the United States constantly states that they have conquered us, there was never a war fought to conquer us. The United States came into possession of our territories of our homeland to abuse our people. They’ve done it through deceit, spreading diseases and trying to eliminate our people, through every way imaginable.
When they became known as the United States, after the revolution and separation from Great Britain, they entered into agreements with my people. We offered them the hand of peace, we called teiohateh, which means ‘two paths’. Because they had no path on this land, that they came here by water, we showed them the courtesy that our agreement with them would be upon the water. We launched our canoe into the water symbolically to travel alongside parallel with their ship through the river of life. We will practice our way. They were newcomers, visitors. We fed them, healed them and everything that a friend would do to extend best wishes to someone.
The United States and others never appreciated the kindness that the people of the Western Hemisphere have shown. Their response was to try to eliminate us and dispossess us of our homelands.
They started to legislate laws over us, laws that did not apply to human beings. They put us in departments of the government which looks at us as being part of the wildlife, part of the landscape. Today they still do not consider us as human beings. They still put us under a department called ‘the Department of Interior’ and the ‘Bureau of Indian Affairs’. They see us as a population, not as human beings.
Today they try to pass legislation. They claim that their war was over taxation without representation. They were happy that they would have a voice in their future. They, in turn. denied our people our human rights.
Twenty years ago the state of New York again wanted to illegally legislate taxation policies on our people. We again opposed it. We had an information gathering, a ceremony and a family picnic with our grandfathers and grandmothers, the parents and children and so on.
We were met with baton wielding state police, who said nothing to us but just started beating down on our peoples, arresting and charging us with ridiculous charges. The first thing the state did in their court was to drop all charges because nobody had broken a law. Yet they had beaten down on men, women and children. They did not discriminate. Twenty years ago we looked at justice and never received it. We took it all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States and received absolutely no justice.
They tried to buy their way out of it. Fifteen [out of over 100] of us refused to accept their money. This issue was never about money. We care about our children, our grand children and the faces that are yet unborn. These are the people we have a responsibility to.
We have always been a free people. We have always been sovereign as individuals. We are true sovereigns. We are not a corporation. We are not a nation. We are a people. It is our desire to continue to be a people and to live as free people, the way our ancestors had taught us. We continue this journey in our lives, to be a free people. We think of our people several generations ahead, that we would leave this place in a good way for them.
The United States has never seen things as we see them. They continue today to pollute our land, our waters, our air, our very being. They try to pollute the minds of our children with their propaganda, lies, religions and ongoing genocide.
Today we bring our words to you in The Hague. We knew we would never receive any true justice in the United States judicial system. We have taken it all the way to prove to all of our people that we would never be able to receive justice in the US system. Now we’ve come to The Hague. We hope there is a chance that you who would hear our voices, would be honest and render a verdict that would give our people justice. But if you don’t, we know why. We will never find justice in any white man’s court. With best wishes I hope that you will find in your minds a justice that would be good and right for the onkwehonweh people in the Western Hemisphere.
I thank you for your time. Onen.
JULY 4 IS THE US CELEBRATION OF WAR: Billy Joel sings “Goodnight Saigon”. We all want peace. Nature created us to resist until we win: “We met as soulmates On Parris Inland. We left as inmates From an asylum. And we were sharp, As sharp as knives. And we were so gung ho to lay down our lives. . .”
MNN. June 27, 2018. Once again the invaders practice celebratory denial on July 1. They have drunken parties and spout tell lies about their gross misdeeds – residential schools, scalping, murder, stealing our possessions and the continuing genocide of all life. They continue to rape our mother and all of her children.
KENONTSAKENIIO – FEMALES ARE TO BE DEFENDED BY THE MALE HALF OF HUMAN LIFE.

onkwehonweneha means being human in the way of forever which is being in harmony with creation. The tree of peace represents the people forever. It is always alive. We are like the needles that fall to the ground that go back into the earth to live again. We must all keep the tree upright. If the people should ever fall, all families are responsible to keep everybody strong.
Our mother created one bowl and one spoon. We shall all benefit from creation. No one can claim it is theirs. The spoon is not sharp as we dip into the bowl so as not to cut the skin, shed blood and create anger.
. . REMEMBER THE RIGHT TO DEFEND WHEN ATTACKED AND HUNGRY.
The white man orders murder of life. They go to other lands and rape the people and the lands. They take no responsibility. They left their own mother and don’t protect anybody but themselves.
Wracked with bitterness and regret, the invaders blind themselves from their promises broken and truths ignored, and how their greed poisoned us and all life on great turtle island. The invaders will feel betrayal all their arrogant attitudes and beliefs. We will be set free. Their own people will hand them over to the black serpent for disposal for the genocide they try to continue to commit.
We will be grateful when they are gone. They won’t be here to force us to sing sad songs and live a sad life. The Band sings about the legacy of the invaders: “Tears of rage, tears of grief. Why must I always be the thief? Come to me now, you know we are so alone, and life is brief.”
