MNN. May 26, 2014. Royaner oya tahontahonton ensonwarontiakeh. Those chiefs that bring in corporate authority violate the Great Peace. They may either be deposed or executed. They shall be warned three times in open Council: first by the women relatives, second by the men relatives, and finally by the chiefs of the Nation to which they belong.  For continuing to submit to foreign laws, such as the Indian Act and Federal Indian Law, the chiefs forfeit their birthright. Wampum 25.

Corporate Indians are part of the genocide. They must be stopped before they kill again!

Corporate Indians are part of the ongoing genocide. They must be stopped before they kill again!

 

To correct their erring chiefs, a wampum string is made. Three spans of the hand, the upper half being white, represents the women. The lower half black, represents equal contributions of the men of the nation. They have combined themselves into one head, one body and one thought to ratify the peace pact of the people.

When the third warning is ignored, the Council of Women consider the matter and then turn it over to the men. The people shall meet. The War Chiefs shall enter the open Council to warn the chief[s] to desist and pledge themselves to the Great Peace.

There are two courses should the chief[s] refuse to heed the third warning. Either the men depose the chief[s]. His deer’s antlers falls from his brow but remains within the nation. The War Chief then dismisses the offending chief. Throughout Onowaregeh, he shall be called, “They have alienated themselves” from their people and nation [tehonatonkoton].

When any Chiefs go against the Great Peace, they may be deposed or executed by the War Chief & His Men.

When any Chiefs violate the Great Peace, they may be deposed or executed by the War Chief & His Men.

In the second course of action, the War Chief shall make a string of black wampum. The men enter the council, stand beside the errant chief[s]. The War Chief holds the black wampum string and says: “You have not heeded the warnings of the General Councils of the Women and of the Men of the Nations. There is only one course.” The War Chief drops the black wampum and the men shall spring to their feet and club the erring chief[s] to death. Any chief may submit to the people before the wampum is dropped. Wampum 58.

The General Council of the Men and General Council of the Women have the right to decide on execution and war.

The General Council of the Men and General Council of the Women have the duty to decide on execution and war.

The right to execute a traitor is held by the General Council of the Men and the General Council of the Women. The Black Wampum symbolizes the Men’s power to execute. It is buried but may be pulled up to act upon as here described. Wampum 59.

The Band rages over the grief of betrayal: “Tears of rage, tears of grief. Why must i always be the thief? Come to me now, you know we’re so alone, and life is brief“. The Band. “Tears of Rage”.

UNCED. The new [old] world order.

Decisions, Decisions

MNN. July 27, 2013. How do we resolve issues using the Mohawk consensual decision-making process? Divide the group into three clans, Wolf, Turtle and Bear. Sit in a circle and face each other as equals. Use the basic criteria – peace, righteousness and power. 

Great Turtle Island decisions are in the best interests of all.

Great Turtle Island decisions are in the best interests of all.

The issue: pretend to be people of an Indian reservation where a train rammed into the center of the community. Ten people died. They are going to be overrun by the FBI, social workers, media, grief counselors, helpers, curious people, assorted authorities and the train company’s representatives. The people need to gather before the world spotlight is put on them. 

The Wolf Clan deliberates first. After discussing the many facets of the horrendous event, they come up with three good ideas. First, ask neutral observers to deal with the outsiders. Second, ask a neutral group to be on the front lines as a buffer. Third, the clans will deal with the victims, families and community. Everyone wants peace. These 3 decisions are passed over the fire to the Turtle Clan, who then discuss them. They agree with the three ideas and expand on the third one. Then it is passed over the fire to the Bear Clan who discuss it and sanction the decisions of the other two clans. 

Everyone is equal and everyone has a voice.

Everyone is equal and has a voice. All have a duty to put their ideas into the process to come to one mind – an agreement or a complete understanding.

This is a traditional Haudenosaunee way of resolving issues. Each person must participate so the level of knowledge is raised and discussed until it is understood. A resolution is reached which is in the best interests of all. It is essential that they come to one mind.  

The structure of decision making in international law and the rule of law come from the Iroquois constitution, Kaia’nere:kowa/Great Law of Peace. It is meant for the whole world to stop war. The US Constitution was based on this philosophy of equality and everybody has a voice. The tools for resolving issues is based on our relationship to the natural world. The problem is the US maintained their hierarchical commercial system within it. The Charter of the UN is based on the US Constitution with this flaw. Everybody has the duty to save the true rule of law for the world. 

In the corporate system the banker bribes everybody and makes the decision.

In the corporate system the banker bribes everybody, keeps information and makes the decision.

The decision-making process gives each a voice. Their thoughts and feelings are validated. They don’t wait for fabricated information and then decisions are made by a few people, which are then implemented by force. Each must seek the real truth. As the Mavericks sang: “I want to know everything..” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlUpmv4oZrY
