Sorry I haven't been around much folks. The calvary still hasn't caught me yet, I continue to moon them, but I'm afraid it has caught my computer. It fought a gallant fight but died none the less. LOL I'm now using my wife's lap-top but have limited access to it as she needs it for her business. Anyways, on to the purpose of this bulletin...

THINGS HAVE COME FULL CIRCLE!

Everyone is well aware of how our people were treated over the years since Columbus made a name for himself by getting lost.

Both our People and Turtle Island has suffered many, many a wrong.

That is not news and I blame no one alive today. You can not be responsible for wrongs that were done long before you were even born.

What you can do though is try to make amends and correct those past mistakes.

I'll even go as far as to give you a very good reason why you should.

What might that reason be you may ask?

Welllll my friends, and enemies alike, it's because Turtle Island is now your home too.

It continues to be raped and pillaged by those who do so simply because they can.

If that is not reason enough for you to care then try this on for size.

The very same wrongs that were done to our People are now being done to you as well.

You are now making the very same mistakes that our ancestors did so long ago.

That is putting your trust in those who's only goals are money and power.....AT YOUR EXPENSE!

They are not only continuing to rape Turtle Island and our People, but now you have they privilege of including yourselves.

Don't think so?

Can't see where I'm going with this?

Let me ask you, do you watch the news?

Read a paper?

Now you too are having your homes taken away.

Your land. You are losing the very things you once believed in.

You are now losing things you hold dear.

Even your religion is forbidden in more and more places, just as ours was to us!

Your language is being taken away and replaced by many foreign to you!

Many of those who are your own leaders are selling you out for their own selfish reasons.

Just as many of ours did us and still do.

You are being forced to fight wars just to try to hang on to what you now have.

In a land where you were once rich in so many things, you find more being taken away every single day.

You can deny this if you like but the truth does not change because you close your eyes and refuse to see.

Don't think you're being sold out?

Take the American Dairy Farmer for example. Someone who is essential to your way of life.

Check the price of milk lately?

Think the Dairy Farmer is getting rich?

NOPE! Wrong if you thought so.

The government dictates how much he gets paid and it's pennies compared to the dollars those get down the line. All the while increasing how much money it takes for them to stay in business.

I know personally of many who have lost their farms, lost their way of life, had their families broken up as a result.

The government can regulate how much a farmer gets for a gallon of milk but it can do nothing to regulate how much the oil companies get for a gallon of gas?

Come on people, shouldn't you be asking why and demanding some straight answers?

Yes, as I see it things have gone full circle.

Turtle Island is still being raped and pillaged, just as when my ancestors were alive.

The only difference being, that now you are included in the casualties.

I do not care who you vote for, nor in what office, but it's time you put political parties aside.

Time a person's wealth should not buy them your vote.

It's time a persons verified record came into play, not just what they claim it to be.

It's time they were held to their promises. Our People once lost much to broken treaties......broken promises.

Now it is you who are losing too.

It's time petty differences were cast aside.

It's time we all woke up.

It's time we fight back.

Time we demand better of our leaders.....or would you rather just sit by doing nothing, while all we hold dear is stolen from us once again.

The choice is up to each and every one of you.

You can have the heart of a warrior and strive to correct so many things going wrong....or you can sit idly by while Turtle Island continues to be raped and you right along with her!

Please, demand better of our leaders and let them know you will settle for nothing less!

So says, Spirit Hawk ^i^
