Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion "Halt Enbridge, Paddle to Protect"

 Paddle to Protect: A 250 Mile Canoe Journey to #StopLine3 "kicked off at the headwaters of the Mississippi. We're so thankful to everyone that came to share time in the water, offer their support, prayers, and good medicine with us before the journey began. The net that we cast when we first reached out for support reached so many people and we want to say chi miigwech to everyone helping us sound the alarm. Catch us on the water between now and our final arrival date on September 2nd in Big Sandy Lake! We hope to see you on the river." -- Paddle to Protect

Treaty Alliance First Nations 'There Will be No New Tar Sands Pipelines'

By Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion
Censored News

While the British Columbia provincial government yesterday was prohibiting Kinder Morgan from starting work on its Trans Mountain Expansion pipeline and tanker project on public land until First Nations rights are respected, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley was on site celebrating the start of construction of Enbridge’s “Line 3” project, a tar sands pipeline also mired in Indigenous opposition – including from the 150 First Nations and Tribes who have signed the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion. That opposition to Line 3 is growing all along its route but its epicenter remains in Minnesota where Tribes and water protectors are promising to stand in its path, like the group of young water protectors who will be embarking starting Saturday August 12 on a 3 – week, 250- mile canoe journey across northern Minnesota called the “Paddle to Protect” – to stand for the lakes, the manoomin (wild rice) beds and the 1855 treaty territories of the Ojibwe people.
“There’s not going to be a Kinder Morgan tar sands pipeline out West jeopardizing our coasts, there’s not going to be a TransCanada contaminating the Ogallala aquifer, nor is there going to be an Enbridge one poisoning the lakes and wild rice beds in Minnesota,” said Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, President of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, on behalf of the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion. “We commend the new BC government for standing up for BC, especially for appointing Thomas Berger as their external counsel, and for wanting to be on the right side of history regarding these climate – killing tar sands pipelines.”
“Our people were at Standing Rock and all the ingredients for another Standing Rock -style stand in defence of our water are there. And the youth are leading the way again, including raising awareness about the dangers of Line 3 with the ‘Paddle to Protect’, a3-week 250-mile canoe journey across northern Minnesota” said Winona Laduke, Executive Director of Honor the Earth, an Indigenous Environmental organization based on the White Earth reservation in Minnesota. “We don’t need this pipeline, we don’t want this pipeline and we’re going to stop it.”
Enbridge’s Line 3 and Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion were both approved by the Trudeau government on the same day on November 29 despite the strong opposition of First Nations across the country. Construction on Line 3 has begun in Canada despite the fact that many Treaty Alliance member First Nations along the route have not given their consent and firmly oppose the work. Meanwhile, the regulatory process is not even finished yet in Minnesota.
“Anyone out there celebrating the start of construction better realize that the opposition to this Line 3 tar sands pipeline is only getting bigger. Do you think our Indigenous people and our allies all over North America are going to let Tribal peoples in Minnesota fight this alone –
do you think our young people will let that happen?” Added Kevin Hart, Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief for Manitoba on behalf of the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion. “Enbridge, the company behind the Line 3 pipeline,is hated in Indian country: our people will never forget that Enbridge tried unsuccessfully to ram through the Northern Gateway pipeline in BC, that they ran roughshod over the rights of the Chippewas of the Thames with their Line 9 pipeline and that they are one quarter owners of the criminal Dakota Access pipeline.”
Enbridge is replacing its old Line 3 pipeline that has a current effective capacity of 390,000 bpd with a new expanded pipeline with the capacity to transport 915,000 barrels of tar sands oil a day–a difference of 525,000 barrels (the same amount of tar sands oil that would have been transported by the now defunct Northern Gateway pipeline). The 150 First Nations and Tribes who have signed the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion have committed to standing together to collectively stop Line 3, the Trans Mountain Expansion, Keystone XL and Energy East.

Mohawk Nation News 'City Life'


Mohawk Nation News
Please post and distribute.
MNN. Aug. 15, 2017. Living in cities did not work for us. Society became large unmanageable and exhausted our resources. City dwellers sent others out to get the resources they needed, which dwindled. Classes, selfishness, greed, crime, corruption and chaos crept in.

People became less willing to share, causing divisions. Crime festered inside the cities.
Smaller groups of onkwe-hon-weh left and returned to the land. They used smaller parcels of land and did not have to travel far from their homes to feed and take care of their families.  Every one was equal. People could live in peace and harmony once again. 
When the invaders arrived on great turtle island, they found remnants of abandoned great cities. The descendants told them it didn’t work out and people went back to their smaller sustainable communities.
Today in North American cities classes of haves and have-nots have created desperation and chaos. Police forces and prisons are big private businesses. Crime, drug dealers, sex parties, human trafficking, pedophilia and perversions from the European mentality are being glorified.
Crime is a big private business for politicians, lawyers, judges, courts, governments to cage people mostly for stupid reasons. The rich get richer and make the rules.
The young and old want a piece of the American pie. A few profit. The majority live in constant fear and poverty.
The rulers spout that everyone has become evil and demand more policing, standing armies and punishment to control or foment wars between races, gangs and desperate people. Those who disagree are targeted.
Natural guidance to protect ourselves has been almost erased. We walk around like strangers in filthy and dangerous cities and towns on our own land. A veil of concrete has been put over our mother’s face so we can’t recognize her. 
It’s one thing to survive but another to live in the natural way. Soon we might exploit our mother too.

We condemn logging, oil drilling, fracking, pipelines, logging, dams, pollution. In the next breath we want to be like them. The corpo band and tribal councils and their cohorts want profit from our resources and to sit in offices trying to scare and control us. They strive to be like their wrongdoing handlers. The almighty dollar is their salvation.

Awareness is the first step. The young are angry. They know they’ve been lied to and cheated. The very essence of who they are has been stolen from them. Those seniors who are near the end should not prevent them from doing what is necessary. It is their time with a whole life ahead of them.
Whoever thought ‘motor city’ Detroit, one of the greatest US cities, would lose its glory. Eminem sings about losing yourself. [Eminem ‘lose yourself’ with lyrics]

Leonard Peltier receives needed wheelchair in prison


Greetings Friends, Family and Comrades
Censored News

Good news on the medical front, Leonard got his wheelchair and now has more mobility in getting to various programs, like the computer class as well as the art room. He wants to thank his lawyer and Committee for their help in getting the chair but Leonard knows the real struggle will be to get a new hip so that he won't be in pain or need a wheel chair at all.
We also got a wonderful donation for the legal fund and the friends that sent it are willing to match any new funds up to 5,000.00 dollars which will be a huge help with the new research and focus that Leonard's attorney wants to take. So, no amount is too small to be matched. If you use PayPal or a check just indicate Legal Fund, and we will let you know how it is going in the next letter.
I hope you have all seen the ad for the concert that will be happening in Tulsa, OK on Nov. 6th. The last day for VIP Packages is 10:00am August 16th, 2017. Visit the concert details at . It will be very exciting to have these wonderful musicians together performing to help us raise funds and awareness of Leonard's struggle.

Concert press statement

French translation by Christine Prat for Censored News.

Nos salutations, Amis, Famille et Camarades,

Une bonne nouvelle sur le front médical: Leonard a sa chaise roulante et a plus de mobilité pour aller à diverses activités, comme le cours d'informatique et la salle d'art. Il veut remercier son avocat et son Comité pour leur aide à obtenir la chaise, mais Leonard sait que la vraie bataille sera d'obtenir une nouvelle hanche, afin de ne plus souffrir ni d'avoir besoin de chaise roulante.
Nous avons aussi reçu un superbe don pour le fond légal, et les amis qui l'ont envoyé sont prêts à ajouter les fonds nécessaires jusqu'à 5000 dollars, ce qui sera une aide énorme pour la nouvelle recherche et le but que l'avocat de Leonard veut fixer. Donc, il n'y a pas de montant trop faible pour faire l'appoint. Si vous utilisez PayPal, indiquez simplement le Fond Légal, et nous vous ferons savoir comment ça se déroule dans la prochaine lettre.
J'espère que vous avez tous vu la pub pour le concert qui aura lieu à Tulsa, Oklahoma, le 6 novembre. Vous pouvez voir les détails du concert sur . Ce sera magnifique de voir ces merveilleux musiciens jouer pour nous aider à lever des fonds et faire prendre conscience de la lutte de Leonard.
Pour tous les soutiens qui ont demandé le t-shirt rouge de Leonard, nous les aurons le 22 août. Si vous avez une commande en attente, elle sera honorée en premier. Ça veut dire que nous l'avons dans toutes les tailles de S à 5X. Je surveillerai votre commande.
Ne voulant pas oublier les amateurs d'art, Kari Ann fait une vente spéciale du tableau Horse Doctor. S.v.p. envoyez un email pour toute question à .
Notre Respect et nos Remerciements,
Paulette et Kari Ann

MESSAGE DE LEONARD (sur le site )
Mes salutations, amis, soutiens et personnes concernées par les injustices.
Une amie proche, Connie Nelson, a collaboré avec le vétéran de l'industrie de la musique Johnny Buschardt et l'ILPDC pour lever des fonds afin de payer une équipe de juristes pour me représenter dans diverses procédures légales que j'espère déposer pour obtenir le traitement médical dont j'ai un besoin urgent, et pour essayer de rentrer chez moi. Selon la loi, j'ai fait le temps que je devais faire, ainsi que le minimum requis par la loi quand j'ai été incarcéré – bien que je n'aie jamais commis le crime.
Nous vous demandons de nous aider en participant à un grand concert à Tulsa, Oklahoma. La date sera le 6 novembre et l'affiche est extraordinaire. Nous espérons que vous pourrez nous y rejoindre.
Je sais que je serai plus que reconnaissant, et les Autochtones le seront aussi, vu qu'ils sont prêts à tout essayer pour me faire rentrer chez nous.
Merci, dans l'Esprit de Crazy Horse.
Leonard Peltier

Mohawk Nation News 'True Memories'

True Memories

Mohawk Nation News
Please post and distribute.
MNN. August 14, 2017. Our children are not being taught, they are being educated, ose-ni-kon-ro-hareh, to wash away our natural instincts to protect ourselves. Our children become defencless as they are removed from natural ways designed by creation.

Other people are training their minds to be obedient without question and to live without thanking the land.  
We are constantly being ordered to listen and memorize, rather than understand where these ideas come from. 
They are being trained to be controlled by the state, church and corporate institutions. We are being removed from the land so the invaders cancontinue to rape and pillage our mother. They are not being taught the skills to survive. We need to help our children take control of their own minds and live with the land to achieve our destiny.
Our seniors have been exposed to residential schools and religion. Their mind has difficulty functioning as creation intended. The residential school mentality continues in mainstream schools.

Our people created a brilliant language and cultural advancements before 1492. The greatest minds in the world were on turtle island that strived towards world peace and true humanity, as we then knew the world. 
Today our teachings come from books written by the enemies. Those from our people are based on research from their libraries. Our true scholars are rejected if they write contrary to the ideology of mainstream academia. We are failing both ourselves and our children from learning the natural reality.  
There are two ways to fight: change or take a hard line. We are conforming. Those who question everything are blacklisted. We are convinced we have to be part of the enemy’s economy and work for them. 
We have been placed on a limited land base to restrict and control our survival.
If the Caucasian disappears from great turtle island, they will leave behind many casualties.  They developed a system so that our people fight each other, fight for the colonial settlers and help enforce their will on us. 

The Caucasian low sperm count means they will be gone. They can still have seeds but if they don’t  have fertile soil, they can’t naturally grow their crops. 
Our seeds are forever. Corn, beans and squash can be put away for thousands of years. Our people can take them to the land and leave behind televisions, cars, computers and material things. We will stop crying about what’s happened to us.
Vern Gosdin, sings about the power of true memories: “What would your memories do, If someday they found the door to my mind Had been locked from inside by my heart. What would they do if they couldn’t use you any longer
To tear me apart. What would your memories do?..”

Mohawk Nation News 'Show Me the Way to Go Home'


Mohawk Nation News
Please post and distribute.
MNN. 13 August 2017. The Caucasians and their followers spread themselves throughout the world onto lands to which they have no natural ties and were uninvited. It was always a disaster. Their plan has always been to dominate everything on the planet. 
Bears and turtles don’t traverse the world and settle in environments that nature did not design them for. Vegetations and animals stay where they belong. Palm trees cannot survive in the Arctic. They would eventually die out. They would have to be replanted in their natural homeland.  
The guiltless destruction by the invaders of land and peoples whose land they occupy attests to their inability to form natural ties and become natural caregivers. Their occupation here was always temporary. Otherwise they would have adopted the kaia-nere-kowa, the great peace, which is meant for everyone in the world. Recent immigrants can return to their mother and experience true peace.   
The story of the white, red and black serpents tells us they would come here, create war and destruction. Eventually they would leave never to be seen again by the onkweh-hon-weh again. The tail of the white serpent that has broken off will remain with us in the hills to heal. Only total truth can prevail. Fascist matrix and those living a total lie for generations will fade away.  
The world acknowledges that ono-ware-keh, great turtle island, is the land of the true natural people.  
Fascism that violates the great peace does not belong in turtle island or anywhere in the world. Profits from exploitation of our land and resources have always gone back to Europe and paid for their wars.  
Their system of oppression and domination has to be dismantled here as the hateful republic of war threatens a worldwide holocaust. All reminders of the evil that was committed must be taught to everyone. As Kruschev said at the UN, “You people will be destroyed from within”. The system of murder, lies, theft, oppression and domination will be dismantled. The mind control propaganda that the American empire is great never convinced our strong minds. No dictatorship in the world ever stood permanently.  
The values, customs and culture of racism, greed and violence is almost over on turtle island. The shortest lived dictatorship is crumbling.  
Emerson, Lake & Palmer sing about their longing to go home: “Show me the way to go home. I’m tired and I want to go to bed. I had a little drink about an hour ago And it’s gone right to my head. Everywhere I roam, Over land or sea or foam, You can always hear me singing this song, Show me the way to go home”.

Mohawk Nation News 'Race Tables Turn'

MNN. Aug. 12, 2017. Caucasian sperm counts have fallen by 60%. They will be infertile in three generations. We remember being told in that we were soon dying out. By 2024 we would be no more or totally assimilated.

Duncan Campbell Scott, Superintendant of Indian Affairs, was in charge of the “final solution of the Indian problem”. He said in 1924, “Our objective is to continue until there is not a single Indian in Canada”, and to “kill the Indian in the child”. 
Their plan for us was complete extermination through various genocide programs. 

The present concern over low reproduction has lead to expensive fertility services becoming a massive industry to help conception of those who can afford it. 
The universe is protecting us. We are where we’re supposed to be, continuing to follow the original instructions and to survive. 
Nature’s payback for genocide, sterilization, pedophilia and other genocide programs. Men have to take Viagra to get it up. Women are on birth control pills or being sterilized. Lots don’t want children at all. Many native women were sterilized without our knowledge. 

The war on the human body and reproduction meant for us is backfiring. 
Assimilation did not work. The Caucasians have to now mix with people of color to survive. Their offspring will not be white. 
Odd sicknesses were brought here. Extensive healthcare and truckloads of psychiatrists are needed to fix their bodies and minds to help them with the adaptation to the idea of going out of existence. 
We are not susceptible to their diseases like osteoporosis, alzheimers, and their vaccines are causing syndromes, especially on young boys.
North American society is falling apart. Their infertility will eventually wipe them out never to be seen again by us. They will have no descendants. No heirs.
They have debt ridden lives, sit in offices pretending to be working or planning wars and environmental devastation. They build cities over our graves. 
Foreclosures, unemployment, no decent healthcare to keep them alive, no hope, tent cities everywhere, just like the slums they left behind. Vouchers, soup kitchens and food carts feed many.  
The US is rotting from the inside. Corporations are designing sicknesses and food with no nutrition or means of fertilization. Fruits and vegetables have no seeds. Pharmacies sell vitamins and minerals to replace dead food. Their weaknesses as a race requires others to take care of them, and heavy duty infra-structure. They use caretakers, maids, nannies, gardeners and slaves that do everything for them.  
A Mohawk of kanehsatake has a scientific explanation for the low sperm count, “The rich guys wear those tight expensive pants and we wear loose second hand baggy pants we get at the thrift shop”. 
The late Glen Campbell sings about the loneliness of the lights dimming out: “Like a rhinestone cowboy. Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo. Like a rhinestone cowboy.   Getting cards and letters from people I don’t even know. And offers comin’ over the phone”
