***PLEASE READ FULLY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS PEACEFUL EVENT IS ABOUT - ALSO PLEASE RESPECT THE COMMENTS AND PEOPLES OF THIS PAGE***
For thousands of years, Indian men have protected their communities, women, children lands, and territories - “Warrior” is an English word that has come to describe them. However, their traditional roles involved more than fighting enemies. They cared for people and helped in many ways, in any time of difficulty. They would do anything to help their people survive, including laying down their own lives. Warriors were regarded with the utmost respect in their communities. Boys trained from an early age to develop the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical strength they would need to become warriors.
Many tribes had special warrior societies – or groups, and each warrior had their own ceremonies, songs, dances, and regalia that they wore. Usually, a warrior had to prove himself before being asked to join a warrior society. It was a great honor to be chosen in this way.
In more recent times our Nation has been asking where have all our Warriors gone????
This page is dedicated to answering that very question!!! Despite what our Nation has been led to believe our Warrior brothers have been with us all along. In short, the Euro-Canadian Justice system labeled our Warrior societies “Gangs” and labeled our Warriors brothers “Gang Members” they turned something that was once traditional and essential for our people into something that is wrong!!!
The same system weaken our Warrior brother’s spirits by supplying our brothers with chemicals (drugs, alcohol) to blind and defeat them. The system also achieved its goal by distorting our Warrior brothers beliefs and values. The system used “money” to divide our solidarity and to keep the wars fighting among each other. Nation-wide our Warrior brothers are awaking to these understandings and are STANDING UP AND SAYING NO MORE!!!
Our Warriors were the backbone of our Nation and helped to keep our nation peaceful and sovereign - over time Indian men were stripped of their connections and peaceful obligations to their communities, women, children, lands, and territories. Any resistance to European beliefs from our Warriors brothers always lead to “institutionalized” punishment!!! The system worked to IDLE the inherent behaviors of the Warriors!!!
***THIS IS A CALL TO ALL OF OUR WARRIOR BROTHERS TO UNITE – TO PUT THEIR DIFFERENCES ASIDE AND GO BACK TO THEIR TRADITIONAL ROOTS!!! USE ANY AND ALL MEANS TO EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT THE ISSUES AT HAND!!! TAKE BACK THE SPIRIT THAT THE SYSTEM HAS TRIED TO TAKE FROM YOU - DO NOT ALLOW THE PAST DIVISIONS TO HOLD BACK FROM PARTICIPATING AND EXPRESSING YOUR VOICE OR ENGAGING IN ACTIVITIES***
