MNN. Mar. 2, 2014. In the 1960s one of the top actors in Hollywood was involved with the burgeoning American Indian Movement AIM. He was constantly seeking knowledge about our true history and rights. He invited Mohawk activist at the time, Kahentinetha Horn, to visit him at his home in Beverly Hills. A limousine  drove her to his lavish heavily guarded hilltop home. Nourishing food was served at the poolside. He was an honest man and she felt comfortable with him. He wanted to learn everything he could about how the colonizers treat the Indigenous people of Great Turtle Island. He learned about the role of the Kanionkehaka in helping to spread the Great Law of Peace to everybody in the world. 

"I got an offer I couldn't refuse" to stand up for the Indians!

“I got an offer I couldn’t refuse” to stand up for the Indians!

Later both were asked frequently by the press about their discrete relationship. He was in his forties and she was in her twenties. Neither kissed nor told.

The Indian Fish Wars were going on at the time in Puget Sound. The US government was violating the 1855 fishing rights treaty. The Indigenous People were removed from their lands but kept these rights and constantly resisted. Marlon Brando, Buffy Sainte Marie and Dick Gregory joined the resistance. In March 1964 Brando was arrested with members of the Puyallup Nation for taking two steelhead trout. That was his awakening.

Because a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man."

In effect, Don Corleone said, “They stand up for their family because they’re real men.”

In 1973 Brando received an Oscar for his role in the Godfather”. He refused it and sent an Indigenous women to deliver a message for him. Later he told talk show host, Dick Cavett, why he did it.

“The motion picture community has been as responsible as any for degrading the Indian and making a mockery of his character, describing him as savage, hostile and evil. It’s hard enough for children to grow up in this world. When Indian children … see their race depicted as they are in films, their minds become injured in ways we can never know.”

“Why Brando Rejected the Oscar”.

“Dick Cavett interviews Marlon Brando”.

Once again the millionaires-patting-each-other-on-the-back show [the Oscars] is on. We wonder who the next Marlon Brando will be for the American Indian!

As Jim Morrison laments: Ride the snake, ride the snake/To the lake, the ancient lake, baby/The snake is long, seven miles/Ride the snake/…he’s old, and his skin is cold.. Jim Morrison. “The End”.

MNN: Canada, This is the End


MNN.  Jan. 5, 2013.  You know everything is ours.  It’s the end of the road.  Corporate Canada, you and your photo op Indians will no longer show off how well you’ve done from the genocide of our people.  It’s over.

Foreign corporations own nothing.  You cannot claim one acre of land under our law.  We Indigenous hold the debt on US and Canada like no other country in the world.  We are calling it in.  We are sending you and your accomplices an invoice for all the stolen wealth you owe us, 200 years of theft plus the interest, according to your own bankers’ system.  You cannot pay it.  You’ll have to claim for bankruptcy and become insolvent. Then you have to leave Great Turtle Island with nothing, the way you came.pockets 

We will care for our Great Mother as she was meant to be.  The Council of Men will stand up.  The Women will take over the communities. There will be no war. Every mother shall call their sons and daughters home to live in peace. The masters of war will not do business anymore anywhere on Great Turtle Island.  

Follow the roots

Follow the roots

The subjects of the defunked corporations of Canada and US can take shelter under the shade of the tree of peace, the true law of the land.  They will come to the same mind as us.   

We are travelling toward the head of the serpent that created dismarmony and almost devoured everything.  The corporations are at the tail end.  Strange bugs and beetles from the ground will attack the serpent.  It will leave never to be seen again.  Mother Earth is calling us to come together to restore balance and harmony, to renew our friendships.  Our mass consciousness is expressing truth and love.  Plants, animals, fish and all of creation are waiting for us to hear again.

Serpent of disharmony

Serpent of disharmony


Violators of the Two Row and Great Law know what they have done as Creation gave everybody the ability to reason.  They chose their path.  

Listen to our farewell song to you Canada.  It is “The End” as sung by The Doors in the movie Apocalypse Now at the death scene of Captain Kurtz: “This is the end, beautiful friend. The end.  Of our elaborate plans.  The end.  Of everything that stands, the end.  No safety or surprise, the end.”  “It hurts to set  you free.  But you’ll never follow me.  The end of laughter and soft lies.  The end of nights we tried to die.  This is the end. Doors: The End
