MNN. Mar. 29, 2016. It is designed by nature, not man-made. The natural world goes in the direction of nature, sa oieri. We humans travel in the natural direction, like the sun, moon, land, plants, animals… Those going contrary create chaos, war, pollution, and suffering for all life. The original instruction to all life is a natural code designed by creation to use our instincts to survive.
Onwana’kaion is the language of earth that teaches us our relationship to creation. We belong to the family and the children coming to us. Ia ne wenton ta kari wa taneh, it shall never end. Our mind must always be exposed to creation. Connecting to natural reality eliminates confusion. Ion’heh is the life spirit.
Fire is the spirit to be free, not to be harnessed by anyone or institution. kaia’nere:kowa, the great peace, encourages us to use creation’s energy. Onon’ton:tsra, your mind makes your decision for you.
Teio’hateh, two row agreement, is the original covenant between us and creation.
Upon arrival, as hospitable people, we welcomed the visitors. We never invited to live here selfish, greedy, brutal people who followed a life contrary to kaia’nereh:koa, the ways of this land. They imposed themselves and decided to grab our birthright and dispose of us. otio’kwan’haxta, the binding of the families, was violated.
The following are illegitimate American treaties, not of the onkwe’hon:weh. George Washington sued for peace in 1784 Treaty of Fort Stanwix which the Americans violated. Again Washington angered the rotino’shonni and others and in 1789 he sued for peace in the Treaty of Fort Harmer, which they violated. In 1794 he sued for peace in the Treaty of Canadaigua. Every treaty was violated, making them all null and void.
Article 7 of Canadaigua explains the process between two sovereigns. Neither side could adjudicate over the other’s citizens or people. Complaints were to be formally submitted to the nation or rotino’shonni [confederacy]. When our people were guilty, we would compensate the US. We would lodge a complaint to the US and, if they are guilty, they would compensate us. Each side would investigate, adjudicate and decide. enkari’watakwen, the peace is kept.
In May 13 1974 when we repossessed our land at Moss Lake, NYS could not use the Canadaigua Treaty because we and the Senecas rejected it. The Americans would not let our people read the agreement though we had formally educated people. We wanted the same words in our wampums as on their paper. They refused. Today they are illegal occupiers!
Guns n’ Roses sings about what our women foresaw and tried to stop: “You know where your are? You’re down in the jungle baby, you’re gonna die”. [Welcome to the Jungle].
