Lest we forget
Thank you “ooNATIVEoo” for putting this on your channel to share John’s poetry and my Imovie skills (whatever they may be).

The video is my work to the poetry/music of John Trudell and I am grateful for all the comments that people have left over the past 10 months. The more people that are touched by the spirit of this video the better. Sharing work is good medicine providing you honour the creator (in both senses).

Here are the lyrics.

Crazy Horse
We Hear what you say
One earth one mother
One does not sell the earth
The people walk upon
We are the land
How do we sell our mother
How do we sell the stars
How do we sell the air
Crazy Horse
We hear what you say

Too many people
Standing their ground
Standing the wrong ground
Predators face he possessed a race
Possession a war that doesn’t end
Children of god feed on children of earth
Days people don’t care for people
These days are the hardest
Material fields material harvest
decoration on chains that binds
Mirrors gold the people lose their minds
Crazy Horse
We Hear what you say
One earth one mother
One does not sell the earth
The people walk upon
We are the land
Today is now and then
Dream smokes touch the clouds
On a day when death didn’t die
Real world time tricks shadows lie
Red white perception deception
Predator tries civilising us
But the tribes will not go without return
Genetic light from the other side
A song from the heart our hearts to give
The wild days the glory days live

Crazy Horse
We Hear what you say
One earth one mother
One does not sell the earth
The people walk upon
We are the land
How do we sell our mother
How do we sell the stars
How do we sell the air

Crazy Horse
We hear what you say
Crazy Horse
We hear what you say
We are the seventh generation
We are the seventh generation

Spain Awarded Shipwreck Treasure!?


from Wikipedia

A US company recovered the contents of a Spanish ship, which went down in 1804 and a US judge awarded Spain with the ownership of the ship and its contents. What follows is an excerpt from the BBC reporting on the find:

“Spain’s Culture Minister Angeles Gonzalez-Sinde expressed joy at the decision:

“It’s a very positive decision for the Spanish government and for all the Spanish citizens because it guarantees that this ship and the remains of this ship will come back to Spain, which was originally the owner of this ship,” he told the BBC.”

The Minister is talking about half a ton of gold coins, which originated where? Is the US now Awarding countries for pillaging gold from the native Americans? The Spansh may have been the original owners of the ship, but who originally owned the gold? A word in the ear of the descendents of the few natives that were somehow left alive by the Spanish state: Work together and get a bunch of good lawyers to get back what was yours to begin with!
