This rotinoshonni [iroquois] story was told at the POUNDMAKER INDIGENOUS PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL in Saskatchewan on August 6, 2020. THE VIDEO:
THE TEXT: “sekon. dekanawida came to us to tell us three things, the good message, the power, the peace. 1. ON THIS PLANET ALL LIVING THINGS HAVE THE SAME MOTHER, SHE IS THE EARTH. THE SAME FATHER, WHICH IS THE SOURCE ENERGY OF ALL CREATION THAT MAKES US ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS. WE SHALL SURVIVE AND COEXIST AS SUCH. 2. THE POWER IS IN OUR OWN MINDS WHERE A PIECE OF THE SOURCE ENERGY OF CREATION HAS BEEN PLACED THAT GIVES US OUR POWER. 3.THE PEACE which is the kaianerekowa, the great peace, whereby we shall survive and coexist with each other and all nature, perpetually, forever.
In the kanienkehaka Mohawk creation story we came from the sky-world, which passes this world on a long cycle. On one of the passings a beautiful woman with child, was placed here on the earth when it was covered in water.
At the last passing dekanawida came to this earth to carry out a mission. He brought the kaianerakowa (Great Peace) and formed the first true democracy and unified our people. It was based on kasastensera kowa sa oiera, the great natural power. ierokwah is the “unification of the Iroquois” the rotinoshonni’onwe, who are symbolicallty the people who made the long house. The longhouse is all of turtle island. The sky is the roof, the ground is the floor and the walls are from east to west, pole to pole. The great peace is for the whole world. The first to accept the kaianerekowa was the kanienkehaka, Mohawk, then the Oneida, Onondaga and Cayuga. The last to join were the Seneca.
dekanawida and the rotinoshonni waited on the plains overlooking Niagara for the Seneca’s response, who were not sure whether to join. dekanawida said, “if tomorrow there are 2 suns in the sky, will you then join?” The Seneca agreed to join if such would happen. The next day there were 2 suns in the sky. The Seneca became the fifth nation to join the ierokwa.
dekaqnawida then gave us an in-depth astronomy lesson about our binary twin solar system.
That sun was in the sky for several days. dekanawida brought the people together and told them the “Serpent Story”.;
He said there will come a time in the future when the onkwehonweh (original people placed on turtle island by creation) are befriended by a white serpent. At first it would be good for both. But seven generations after contact the white serpent would have the onkwehonweh squeezed so tight they could hardly breathe. Then a red serpent appeared from the North and startled the white serpent which momentarily dropped the onkwehonweh to the ground, who then crawled like babies to the hilly country to heal.
The red serpent and white serpent will start to war against each other and will begin destroying mother earth. The birds will fall from the sky, the fish will turn on their bellies in the water, all the elm trees will die and the air will burn the eyes of man.
Then the red and white serpents will be at a standstill for a while, not knowing what to do. Then a black serpent will come from the south. He would control the other serpents. They would invade and destroy one country after another throughout the world, always planning who would be their next victim. Then as the black serpent was looking for the next victim, he would see only the onkwehonweh in the hills healing. He said, “I have no fight with them”. Then a bright light, many times brighter than the sun will come from the east. The black serpent will be fearful and swim south, never to be seen again by the onkwehonweh.
The red serpent will see the light, will be fearful and crawl north leaving a snaily trail behind him, never again to be seen by the onkwehonweh. Part of the tail of the white serpent will break off and crawl to the hilly country to heal with the onkwehonweh. The rest of the white serpent will make a feeble attempt to swim toward the light.
The light shall be the return of the skyworld. This will be the time the peace shall reign over the entire earth and a great time to be alive. Then he got into his stone canoe and flew back to the skyworld. He said he will return when the skyworld returns.
He spoke to our ancestors. We all know about this phenomena in different ways. We are supposed to live in harmony with nature and to survive with each other as bothers and sisters on our mother earth. We are to remain connected to our mother as she will be going through some changes and so will we.
dekanawida advised us to keep your mind strong on the great peace and stay on the path.
Everything that was ever created by man, started as a thought in one mind. Thoughts turn into memory and memory is DNA, which is why we all have a unique code. Thoughts only come from 2 sources; old memories and inspiration from creation. When we use our memory, we will remember right back to the first memory and everything in between. Then we will be ready for the inspiration and evolve as a species. There will come a time when everybody will remember how to use their memory again. They will remember everything from every past life they ever had. We will then live in peace forever.
The evil was placed here and is still here. We are part of the universe. We are to heal this wound in our collective conscious so we can evolve through love and to leave fear behind us forever. Love starts between a mother and child. That is why the council of women are responsible for the children and the land and life they bring them onto. Our local community is the most important relationship for the decision making process. The corporations polluting the environment violate the universal law of nature.
In 1779. The American revolution was created by the British crown to divide and conquer us, the rotinoshonni’onweh [ierokwa]. The battles were staged between British business interests to falsely portray the illusion of freedom amongst their settler colonists. In 1779 American General Sullivan under the direction of George Washington amassed the largest patriot army of 38,800 men to carry out their true intentions. Sullivan marched on Onondaga, the home of the tree of peace, and for one year destroyed everything he could. Washington ordered Sullivan to force the ierokwa to move west of the Mississippi river. If they refuse they are to annihilate them. Sullivan carried out the scorched earth policy, burning all the cornfields, orchards, longhouses and mass murdered the people.
During this time the British relaxed at Quebec. A few years later they placed a false border right through the center of ierokwa/Iroquois land. They called one side Canada, the other the United States. We noticed then that the same families controlled the economy of both sides of the fake border through their banking and “free market” enterprises.
Hollywood creates and rewrites history. It is owned by these same families. Their films reveal the end of the world scenarios where the powers that be do not tell anyone of the impending disaster that they are engineering until just days before it is upon them. The plots are all the same, cataclysmic events that destroy the world. They never tell you what is causing these events. They are now fearing for their own coming end.
The skyworld returning will end the evil power structures that have destroyed everything. When the second sun appears in the sky the great peace will return. The serpents will never be seen by the people again. We will evolve as a species through the power of love when we eliminate fear in each of our own minds. We can reconnect to the true power of creation itself. kaneronkwatsera, thoughts are things…Unity, Strength, Peace.
dekanawida had three things to tell us – the good message, the power, the peace. This story is known by many onkwehonweh.
kanienkehaka/Mohawk singer and songwriter thahoketoteh sings of the tree: ‘Now we stand as brothers let us plant this tree. Water its roots it’ll go from sea to sea. Watch it grow to the sky and bask in its shade. It represents the unity we now have made. We bury our weapons for all time underneath and a Great Order we now bequeath. If any should follow the roots to their source, they may sit with us in the shade of course.
