PostSubject: A Declaration of Sovereignty   Wed Jul 07, 2010 12:55 pm

taken from M.A.V.I. July issue

A Declaration of Sovereignty


When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one People to define the political and historical relationship which has connected them with another, and to re-assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Creation entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to make such a clarification.- We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all mankind are created equal, that they are endowed by Creation with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.-- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among People, deriving their just powers only from the Consent of the Governed,-- That whenever any form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the Right and Obligation of the affected People to alter, abolish or separate from it, and to re-establish themselves, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments and Relationships long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all human experience has shown, that mankind is more disposed to suffer, while injustices are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing that which they have grown accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same Course, evinces a design to reduce Human Beings to a mere resemblance of a proud People under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty to throw off such Governments, and to provide new measures for their security.- Such has been the patient sufferance of entire Generations of the People of the Six Nations; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter what has become of their Relationship to the New York State and United States Governments. The history of the Executives, Legislators and Judges of these Governments is a history of repeated injuries, usurpations and deceit, all having in direct object the unlawful occupation of Native lands and the Eradication of First Nations as Distinct, Autonomous Societies. To prove this, let the Facts be submitted to a candid World.- The Governments of New York State and the United States have combined together and with others to subject our People to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution(s) and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving assent to their acts of pretended legislation:--For developing national policies, including Extermination, Removal, Assimilation and Termination, with regard to Native People:-- For directly or indirectly allowing for the unlawful occupation of Native lands and the theft of Natural resources:-- For abrogating their own "Supreme Laws of the Land", altering on every occasion promises made by the United States regarding Territorial Boundaries, Land Use and Sovereignty:-- For attempting to Denationalize us by forcing U.S. Citizenship upon us:-- For abusing our children with a policy of "Kill the Indian, Save the man" through the use residential schools, forever altering generations:-- For cutting off trade with all parts of the World, including in and amongst our own Territories:-- For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:-- For forcing our People into their courts and there by depriving us of a trial by a jury of our peers:-- For imprisoning our People for conduct in our own Territories and claiming such conduct to be crimes against the United States:-- For ignoring our own power to legislate, and declaring themselves invested with the power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever:-- For historically coercing, corrupting and deceiving our Representatives and in many cases appointing our Representatives for us:-- For keeping among us an unwarrantable police presence without the consent and against the will of our People:-- For designing specific military plans for the invasion of our Territories (ala Gallant Piper), including the requisition of body bags and ambulatory services:-- For developing the concept of “Federal Indian Law”, which applies case law from one Native Territory to another completely disregarding the distinct status of our Nations and the Relationships to, not only the United States, but the International Community in general:-- For reducing the obligations made in Treaties to welfare and arbitrary act of charity:-- For adopting policies that encourage Socialism in our Communities and discourage the private sector development of our economies:-- For developing self serving concepts including; Quasi-Sovereign, Domestic Dependent Nations, and Ward- Custodian Relationship, and then treating them as accepted and established law:-- For claiming that the U.S. Constitution vests Congress with plenary powers over the affairs of our Sovereign Nations and that our own Sovereign Powers are subject to the plenary powers of Congress:-- For destroying the natural beauty and integrity of our homelands, contaminating the air, water and soil; destroying the game and vegetation that existed in harmony since time immemorial. Representatives from New York State and the United States have mis-stated history, law and fact for the sole purpose of causing dissention and hostility among their People against our People. The formation of citizens groups calling for the abolishment of all U.S.- Indian Treaties, all Native Land Claims and recognition of our Sovereign Territories has begun. Tension between Native and non-native People in some communities is at a modern day high. By and large the Good People of New York State and the United States have remained our friends. Together with People from around the World they support our efforts and continue to recognize our Sovereignty. Our presence alone, however, is not a strong enough reminder of our history. We must, therefore, promulgate our position, our standing, our autonomy and, in the oldest of ways, offer to clean the eyes of those who cannot see injustice, clean the ears of those who cannot hear the appeals of others and clear the throats of those who cannot speak the truth.
We, therefore, the People of the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Tuscarora and Seneca Nations, appealing to the People of the Earth, Declare, that we are of right and, indeed, have always been a Sovereign People. We reject any assumption of subjugation, including any misconception regarding our Citizenship. We are and always have been the People that constitute our respective Nations and claim no other. We define our Sovereignty as the Right or Power to have Independent Authority not affiliated with other controlling entities. We affirm our Relationship to the United States and to the rest of the World as defined in the “Two Row Wampum” and disclaim and/or dissolve any political connection to anyone that supports behavior contrary to Mutual Respect, Non-interference and not conducive to a Peaceful and Prosperous journey on the River of Life.

The USA PATRIOT ACT and Indian Country

From July issue M.A.V.I.



As things started heating up in the run up to this latest round of battling the State and feds on the marketing of regulatory advantages, particularly as they relate to gas and cigarette sales on Native soil, a murmur of concern began to buzz through our territories about stiffer penalties and covert activities the Government might use against Native people as they dug in for a fight. The USA PATRIOT Act started being thrown around as if Native people could no longer, in the proverbial post 9-11 work, fight for their right to exist with out the threat of being put in a cage in Guantanamo Bay.
Even the name sends a eerie message as if some one could be locked up for being unpatriotic. The name, USA PATRIOT, actually stands for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorists. Regardless of all the Native American Veterans and Uncle Tom Toms out there, very few people actually expect Native people to be very patriotic to a nation that has and continues to mistreat them . Any suggestion that resistance to State or federal authority on Native lands could be classified as terrorism is ridiculous. Granted, some of the racist morons who champion the fight against Native sovereignty have tried to tie tobacco sales to terrorist funding and one state senator from New York asked the state attorney, in a recent hearing, about using provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act to prosecute those that would threaten the use of violence against the State forcing is will on Native lands. But the reality is that the biggest proponents of this law have been in a dog fight to keep even portions of it on the books since it was passed and the last thing any of them wouldn’t wont to do would be to have it gutted because it was used against Native activists fighting against assimilation and genocide,
Shutting down the Thruway or even the rail system through Native lands is not terrorism. Terrorism is the use of violence to create fear to promote an agenda or ideology. George Washington was a terrorist. His orders to General John Sullivan were to “lay waste ( to) all the (Seneca) settlements around” and “that the country may not be merely overrun ,but destroyed”. Washington also insisted that surrender by the predominantly women and children of these villages was to be ignored. His orders went on to sa , “You will not by any means listen to any overture of peace before total ruinment of their settlements is effected.” Washington specifically lays out, not just the strategy of terrorism but he literally spells it out: “Our future security will be in their inability to injure us and in the terror with which the severity of the chastisement they receive will inspire them.” Creating doubt in the minds of would-be travelers or shippers as to the viability of a route through Native lands is a far cry from inflicting an act so violent that generations would be pacified against resisting unlawful incursions. Civil disobedience is not violence, although oppressive regimes often react violently to them. The only time violence has occurred between the State and Native people is when the State tried to bring and use force against them. To all those who would say, “I’m not going down the close the thruway; they will lock us up in Guantanamo this time”; just save it. The history of Native resistance is littered with cowardly by-standers who made excuses to do nothing. Worse than those who do nothing are those that would promote and instill fear in others who might otherwise stand up. Those within Native communities who try to come off as intelligent or somehow knowledgeable, spreading myths about the PATRIOT Act or some other conspiracy that the government will inflict upon those who refuse to lie down for them are, in many ways , worse than cowards. Native people need to be encouraged to stand up. There are far worse consequences for doing nothing.

QUOTE: The message is clear: "Mess with our commerce and we'll mess with yours". :END QUOTE

PARAPHRASE:With the New York State Thruway, I86 and major rail and power lines crossing Seneca and other tribal lands targets are plentiful. "No mail;no rail" is one of the reacurring phrases. :END PARAPHRASE
