Mohawk Nation News 'Hanging Tobacco'



Please post & distribute.
MNN. Apr. 19, 2014. O’ien’kwen:ton [hanging tobacco] is an elite part of the Warrior Society [Roti’skennen:kete]. They are also known as the “ghost warriors”. A bundle of fresh tobacco is tied and hung in the dark corners of the longhouse so they will stay green and almost invisible.
O'ien'kwen:ton are trained for special duties.
The men of this society secretly train to be close to the original duties of our ancestors to protect the people according to the Great Law of Peace. They go through rites to develop great mental and physical strength in peacetime and wartime. Only those who have the strength and power are selected to be part of this special elite force. Their bodies are painted in dark colors, red and yellow stripes are marked on their faces and their clothes blend in with the forest. When they are on maneuvers in the wilderness, they are a shadow that cannot be seen nor heard by the enemies.
The war chief notifies the 5 war chiefs of the League to prepare for war & have the men ready for engagement with the enemy of the Great Peace.
The 5 war chiefs prepare for war & have their men ready to fight the enemy of the Great Peace. W79.
They accompany the Ah’sera:kowa, War Chief, to face nations with the message to cease breaking the peace and hurting the people. After being given the message and told the words, the black wampum is dropped in front of enemy.
Black beads is emblem of War Chiefs' authority.
Black beads is the emblem of the War Chiefs’ authority to pursue War in Defense of the Territory.
When they refuse to grab it and it hits the ground, the O’ien’kwen:ton appear out of the shadows, and smash in their heads with the war club. Then war with the Rotino’shonni:onwe begins.
O’ien’kwen:ton are always here in the spirit dimension to assist our men. They visit those who work against natural law. Prime Minister Harper and President Obama should consider well US President Thomas Jefferson’s warning to them:                                                                  “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: his justice cannot sleep forever!”
chief obamaPresident Obama decided rightly to cancel the oil pipeline on Great Turtle Island. We wonder if he will make the right decision to free Leonard Peltier. Enjoy the song while watching this excellent video on how our younger brother, President Obama, came to make the right decision. Video: “Obama convinced to make natural decision on pipeline”.

Mohawk Nation News 'Canada threatens ancient Mohawk allies'


Please post & distribute.
MNN. Apr. 18, 2014. Corporation of Canada CEO Harper is sending 6 CF18s and other weapons of mass destruction for NATO provocations against our ancient allies, Russia. Russia is legally a longtime ally of the Rotino’shonni:onwe/Iroquois Confederacy and its friends and allies on Great Turtle Island. Our alliance is based on  Kaia’nereh:kowa, our constitution. Treaty belts accepted by Peter the Great in 1710 record this sovereign international agreement of peace. These belts have been presented to us for interpretation.

"This event is NOT a protest or a political event. It is about praying and blessing our Shoshone land. Everyone is welcome. Please tell your friends and help us get the word out!" -- Johnnie L. Bobb
After an initial orientation day Sunday, May 4, 2014, the Western Shoshone Walk & Run will begin at dawn May 5, 2014 and end on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11, 2014.
Traveling a different route, the Walk-Run will start approximately 12 miles east of Austin at the intersection of Rte 50 and Hwy 376, travel south on Rte 376 to Hwy 6, and then move on to Rte 95 passing through Tonopah, Beatty, and ending at Mercury.
Every day the group will travel 40-45 miles by relay. Support vehicles will follow for safety and to carry supplies, water, and gear.
We will learn from each other about our land, our history, our language, our ancestors, our Native ways, and our reverence for water and all life.
Sunday, May 4, 2014 we'll review how we will proceed and assign tasks.
Monday, May 5, 2014, while we gather for the morning sunrise ceremony, the first runner will set out.
Look for us to be camped on the right side of the road. You can join up anywhere along the route and stay as long as you can.
We need runners, walkers, supporters to set up and break down camp, to cook, pack and clean up camp, run errands. We also need supporters with vehicles to transport relay runners and walkers and water, snacks, and other supplies.
All meals will be provided, but we will appreciate food to share. Bring your own camping supplies, tent, bedroll, lip balm, sun screen, extra socks, sturdy athletic shoes, towel, and cameras.
As in past years, we will be planting willows along the route with prayers for water and the health of the land.
Donations of cash, fuel, water, sport drinks, snacks, and food are needed and can be made to:
