MNN. Apr. 12, 2016. We are a free people, living free, having a say in our lives and equal with everything in the natural world. We are surrounded by those who have never experienced natural freedom, who are bred to be captives. Any living entity can only take so much crushing oppression.
“Come inside the cage with us”, they say. We are hated because we refuse to be captives.
Keeping Leonard Peltier in jail for over 40 years for a crime the FBI knows he did not commit, is their threat to the rest of us. When the colonial enforcers enter our territories and shoot us, it is natural to fight back to survive. We evolved out of nature. All animals will defend themselves according to the natural order of survival. We are fighting an unnatural order.
They are born in bondage for thousands of years. They see us free. They want to take away our freedom or kill us for resisting. They envy and hate those who refuse to be enslaved like them. We have a bond with creation to survive using our instincts.
Luther Standing Bear: “The white man…does not understand America. He is too far removed from it’s formative processes. The roots of the tree of his life have not yet grasped the rock and the soil. The white man is still troubled by primitive fears; he still has in his consciousness the perils of this frontier continent; some of its vastnesses not yet having yielded to his questing footsteps and inquiring eyes. … The man from Europe is still a foreigner and an alien. And he still hates the man who questioned his path across the continent. But in the onkwe’hon:weh [Indian] the spirit of the land is still vested; it will be until other men are able to divine and meet its rhythm. Men must be born and reborn to belong. Their bodies must be formed of the dust of their forefathers’ bones.”
The white man wants us to be programmed like them. The George Washington Belt 1794 and other programs are orders for our total extermination. We stand now on our mother’s belly with artificial barriers placed around us.
As Tina Turner sings: “Out of the ruin, out from the wreckage. Can’t make the same mistake this time. We are the children, that last generation. We are the ones they left behind. I wonder when we are ever gonna change? Living under the fear, til nothing else remains. We don’t need another hero. We don’t need to know the way home. All we want is life beyond the Thunder Dome”. [We don’t need another hero]
