Words are our Best Weapon Against the Lies of History (Truth in the Root of the Word).
I want to talk about our original treaties. We not only made treaties with the , but we also made treaties with other foreign countries.
Many indigenous (Indian) nations occupied the North American woodlands during the early seventeenth century. The Iroquois-speaking people included the Huron, Cherokee, Neutrals, Tuscarora, Wenro, Erie and Susquehannock, as well as the political confederates known as the Five Nations Iroquois ( Seneca, Cayuga, Wenrohronon,Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk).
The French called our nations The Iroquois, and the British referred to us as the Five Nations, but we called ourselves Haudenosaunee. In 1714 the Tuscarora came from to join the Haudensaunee Confederacy; and hence the British called us the Confederacy the Six Nations.
The Original Americans, the indigenous people, traveled their lands and adapted to their changing surroundings by inventing unique weapons, tools, clothing and shelter so they could use the natural resources to their advantage. They learned to cure their sick and keep themselves healthy by learning the healing and medicinal properties of the surrounding plant life.
(Preparing Seafood & Corn, c 1590)
As the population of the Autochthonous People grew into the millions, each new nation developed their own ways of handing down wisdom to the young, through oral histories, legends and ways to relate to each other, and to nature and the Great Spirit. Leadership in their classless society was based on an individual’s hunting or fishing skill, physical prowness, warring abilities or eloquence in speech.
Leaders had no delegated power but maintained influence through acts of kindness, wisdom, generosity, and humility. Positions of leadership always were earned and could not be passed from generation to generation as a hereditary right. Marriage was between clans.
The Seneca and the other nations of the Haudenosaunee share the same creation story, which relates that Twins — spirits of the Sky World — created the world on the back of a great spirit turtle. Consequently, our world is a Turtle Island aswim in an endless black sea. Seneca oral history also relates that from ancient times the Seneca lived in extended families, who lived together under one roof in bark houses known as longhouses. The name Haudenosaunee translates to People Who Build an Extended House. This distinguished the Haudenosaunee from the peoples who surrounded them.
Another Seneca story relates that a people emerged from the earth at what is now called South Hill near Canandaigua Lake, about 20 miles from Ganondagan. It is an extremely significant tale, for the Seneca answer to the name Onondowaga, literally the People of the Great Hill. Seneca identity is strongly attached to place, and South Hill is the birthplace of the Seneca people in the distant and unmeasured past.
Seneca oral tradition also tells of a Huron man who arrived among the Mohawks speaking of peace and an ordered society. This prophet is known today as the Peacemaker. The Mohawk, Oneida, and Cayuga pledged to join his proposed confederation, and following a dramatic interlude, the Seneca agreed also. The discussion about how to bring in the Onondaga found its way into the house of a Neutral woman living among the Seneca. She proposed a solution which eventually brought the Onondaga into the fold. This woman is now known as the Mother of Nations She lived in the vicinity of Ganondagan, and is buried nearby.
The Peacemaker established the Gayanashagowa, or Great Law of Peace, as the Constitution of the Haudenosaunee. The foundation of the law was that thinking and negotiations can replace violence and warfare as a means of settling disputes. The nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy have held fast to that law since the time of the Peacemaker.

(Something crawled into our divine bloodline)
We had an agreement with one another, “I am not going to get out of my canoe and get into your boat and try to steer it, and I am not going to ask you to get out of your boat and into my canoe and try to steer it. We are going to allow one another to exist.”
In the beginning, we helped them in their quest to be “Free From Bondage”, on the land of the First People. We helped them establish their government, taught them how to Cultivate the Soil, Build, and how to create agreements of Peace and Friendship. Their independence were based on our autochthonous* status to the land; which helped in their claim for independence and creation of government.
We have our own way of life, and you have yours, and we are not trying to convince you to be us; nor do we want to be you. You wanted our help because you were fleeing for your lives. This was the sentiment of the Original Americans towards the Europeans. However things soon changed, and we saw first hand what it was they fled from.
Inching Towards the Truth
The colonists brought their European wars to North America and their competition for land (and its resources) were endless. This led to a hundred years of war with the French, and their Indigenous American allies, in the north. With the British, and their Indigenous American allies, in the south. Attempts by the Haudenosaunee to remain neutral in these wars between European colonies proved costly. Most of the Six Nations (Iroquois) Confederacy withdrew into their traditional homelands during the so-called French-Indian Wars leading to eventual British victory over New France on the Plains of Abraham.
One moment, we are traveling in our canoe, down the river of life, traveling in a parallel line in their boat are those Europeans or Euro-Americans who are here on our land. And the next moment we were being kidnapped, moved across the land; Put into bondage/Slavery in our OWN land and told we were escaped slaves- those people they tricked into indentured servitude. (History fails to mention many slaves were Pale in skin, those that were Dark in skin, were POW’s from Europe and other lands (those numbers were considerably smaller than what is depicted in colonist stories)).
They killed our Warriors, Elders even Women and Children, many ran into the hills and mountains. Those that survived were separated based on our varying copper-color complexion. Mothers were separated from children; who were used for the adventures of colonist (Rape, Molestation and Bait for animals, video). Leading to the Genocide of Aboriginal Peoples. video: Unrependent.
Our Land, Inheritance, Names were all stolen and we were misidentified as Negro or Colored. Now misnomered Black or African-American. Although those titles were thrust upon us, many of our Grandparents continued to fight for our inheritance and told many stories of our life before the colonist came.
Here is an excerpt from a 65 years Original American Indian:
“When I was growing up, it wasn’t safe to be Indian. It was better to be thought of as Black or Negro. So, my mother always told us to never talk about who we were or what we were. She was afraid. She thought that we would get hurt or be killed. So, we just never talked about it much…especially away from home. But we knew who we were. We knew who our peoples were.”
Talking about your heritage, or your connection to the land(rights), was/is a dangerous topic that could cost you your life. This is one reason why we see pale skinned people claiming American Indian (or Native American) ancestry. Many ran and took refuge in our clans (tribes); unbeknownst to us some were working on behalf of the colonist to steal our titles and land. This is why in the 1831- Cherokee v. Georgia, Justice Marshall ruled that the Cherokee Nation was not a “foreign state” as defined in the U.S. Constitution, and therefore they could not sue the state of Georgia in the Supreme Court from usurping the gold on their land.
By this time, many tribes had been fully infiltrated. The original Cherokees were being designated something else; while the pale-skinned Europeans claimed their heritage and land.
One such individual writes:”Those of our ancestors, who did not participate in the actual removal and hid-out in caves and the mountains, in some cases also became landowners and took on slaves during and after the encroachment of the whites society in order to survive, and also married into the “Black” race, so there are also many Dark-skinned Cherokees among us!”
This sort of forked-tongued/crazy-talk continues to this very day. Many not knowing their ancestors were in fact the usurpers that stole and murdered; and those working the land (the autochthon people) were the actual heirs. There is even a clip of a Blond-haired news reporter, proudly announcing to her co-anchor that she is a quarter Cherokee. The co-anchor, gives her a look, “you know Cherokees are Black.”
Here in a rally against illegal aliens. The descendants of these colonist are still claiming to be who there are not.

From Smithsonian website:
John Ross made an unlikely looking Cherokee chief. Born in 1790 to a Scottish trader and a woman of Indian and European heritage, he was only one-eighth Cherokee by blood. ( A look at John Ross lineage). Short, slight and reserved, he wore a suit and tie instead of deerskin leggings and a beaver-skin hat. Ross became the Cherokees’ principal chief.
All the while, white settlers kept coming…
The state governments did little to discourage them, ignoring federal treaties and even abetting the taking of Indian land through bribery, fraud and coercion. When the tribes turned to Washington for redress, federal officials proved ineffectual or hostile, depending on the administration. One by one the other major Southern tribes—the Chickasaws, the Choctaws, the Creeks and the Seminoles—signed treaties that required them to uproot to the far side of the Mississippi River.
Modern-day Native Americans, do not know of their “Copper-Color Bushy Haired” origins, but have accepted the claims of their oppressor as fact without verification. Those living on Federal Land (reservations) are a product of this colonization and rape. It is a very sensitive topic as many are unaware of their true history.
The same is true for many Original American Indians. Although they have the historical link; they too believed the lies of the colonist, and not the Truth of their Soul.
REMEMBERING WHO THEY ARE:
The Iroquois lacrosse team was prohibited from traveling to Great Britain for the World Lacrosse Championship because of their Haudenosaunee Confederacy passports.
Percy Abrams, Iroquois Nationals lacrosse team board of directors executive director, shows his Haudenosaunee, or Iroquois Confederacy, passport during a news conference in New York.
For decades Native leaders have been knocking at the doors of the United Nations, trying to get in so they can make their arguments for admission as sovereign states, an idea the US is adamantly opposed to.
Several native nations, such as the Hopi, Shoshone and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy maintain they have never ceded their independence to the US. They point to a long history as nations, a tradition which the US recognized when it entered into treaty relationships with their governments.
Instead, US courts have declared Indians to be members of “dependent” nations who occupy their lands at the pleasure of Congress, a political body which may at any time elect to abrogate Native status altogether.
Although the Modern-day Native American may not know of their original heritage, the image on the flag speaks volumes. The Mohawk people were described by the french colonist as Boar’s Hair. Remember, there were no hair gel then to make straight hair stand up!
Mohawk Nation News sends the following news and call for action surrounding the upcoming peaceful demonstration in Akwesasne.
“THERE MUST BE NO GUNS!
“On June 1 the Canada Border Services Agency guards will try to carry 9mm Berettas, which are meant to kill people. The UN must stop this attempt at ethnic cleansing at Akwesasne. Canada at the behest of the U.S. is trying to commit genocide on us, the real people of mother earth.
“A treaty was signed between Britain and the U.S., known as the Jay Treaty of 1794. It was to be an undefended border between Canada and the U.S. The purpose was to bring peace between two warring countries. The two parties have remained peaceful since the War of 1812.
“Canada has always dealt with the Indigenous nations by sending RCMP to speak peacefully with us to avoid belligerence. Historically there was little warfare because guns were not used as they are in the U.S. The U.S. stole the West by killing our people. They almost annihilated us. Sitting Bull left for Canada because he knew he would be safe [and I left for Norway].
Conclusion, We are the true Autochthonous People of the Land (although they want to usurp our identity); their documents tell the Truth.
You must not identify yourself by the name (labels) given to you by the oppressor. This is where our Modern-day Native Americans fall short. They are identifying themselves as something that was created by the colonist, and all they need to do is take a closer look at their lineage…
(*Tribes in historiography: Ancient myth of autochthony in historiography is the belief of the historian or the tribe itself, that they were indigenous, the first humans to inhabit their possessed land, “people who sprung from earth itself”, are the original inhabitants of a country as opposed to settlers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autochthon_(ancient_Greece)

October 5 (legislative day, September 26), 1988
Received and referred to the Select Committee on “Indian” Affairs
October 21 (legislative day, October 18), 1988
To acknowledge the contribution of the Iroquois Confederacy of Nations to the development of the United States Constitution and to reaffirm the continuing government-to-government relationship between Indian tribes and the United States established in the Constitution.
Whereas the original framers of the Constitution, including, most notably, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, are known to have greatly admired the concepts of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy;
Whereas the confederation of the original Thirteen Colonies into one republic was influenced by the political system developed by the Iroquois Confederacy as were many of the democratic principles which were incorporated into the Constitution itself;
