Beware of the "Military Industrial Complex" Paki Weiland reminds us President Esienhower said. In this interview, broadcast from Goddard College Community Radio with co-hosts Deb Reger and Ruth Wilder we talk with long-time Peace Activist Paki Weiland. Her insights of historical non-violent social movement work keep her propelled to keep going. A community of support from coalitions to affinity groups like The Raging Grannies and Shut It Down support and nurture her in this work as well as working with shall we call them "the oldsters"...

Her witnessing continues and she shared about the action at the Hancock National Air Guard Air Base in Dewitt, NY that she recently went to jail for. She shares about the Indictment Of War Crimes at this Drone Site and the consequences of that action.

Gratitude for this

Moccasin Tracks spoke to Carole Blodgett Dec 12, broadcasting from the studio at WGDR;Goddard College Community Radio in Plainfield Vermont, we talked to Carole by phone in Connecticut. Our conversation about the Sacred Water Walks she has taken and the teachings and indigenous perspective that compels Carole to be planning yet another Sacred River Walk. As she has written here about her work http://waterislifewalk.wordpress.com/ we again are gifted with her words describing how Water is related to all the struggles happening on Mother Earth now. She encourages us to view ceremony as something we all are empowered to do and start with these simple acts of generosity and gratitude. Carole is of Penobscot descendant and we are honored to talk with her again.

Live Broadcast from the campus of Goddard College, Moccasin Tracks on WGDR Plainfield and WGDH Hardwick (more at wgdr.org) Talking from his home in Greenfield, NY author, poet, storyteller Joseph Bruchac joins us on Moccasin Tracks. Joseph Bruchac says on his facebook page (You can follow him he says!!) "
I was interviewed today by Deb Reger, a community radio host on WGDR, Goddard College Community Radio in Vermont. They had just rebroadcast a short play of mine called KTSIAIAK (which might be roughly translated as THE OLD ONES) that was staged in July of 2010. It focuses on what might happen if Gluskonba and Nokomis Agaskw, Grandmother Woodchuck came back.

Gluskonba is our culture hero who fought monsters in the ancient times and changed things to help make this earth better for humans. Grandmother Woodchuck advised Gluskonba when he was young and foolish and not yet aware of the right way to use his power.

In one part of the play they are confronted by a lawyer. Imagine the scene of one of those Ancient Ones being asked by a lawyer to prove who they are.

Gluskonba does not have a United States birth certificate. He shaped himself from the earth. Then again, maybe he was born in Kenya, eh?

I was thinking of how the Abenakis of Vermont were asked for decades to provide proof that they were really American Indians. Including during the fish-in trials more than two decades ago when the Vermont Abenakis won their case but then the state of Vermont tied things up in appeals for the rest of the 20th century. (At that trial I testified on behalf of our Vermont Indian community as a storyteller.) I was also thinking about the issues of repatriation of the remains of our ancestors--many of which have yet to be returned to the earth after being dug up by archaeologists and bone collectors to be studied, exhibited--or used as ash trays as was supposedly done with the skull of the Florida Seminole leader Osceola.

It’s better now. Several of our Native communities now have state recognition as tribal entities. And they are trying, as I told Deb Reger, to both maintain and strengthen their own communities at the same time as they reach out to majority culture to help them understand our people. It’s still a delicate balance.

I’m not a politician. (Another reason for me to give thanks each day.) But I am a storyteller. And I know that the stories hold more wisdom than I do. I trust them, carry them and am carried by them. So this weekend Jesse and I will be sharing some of those stories—in both English and the Western Abenaki language—that we’ve been privileged to learn. That we are still learning.

So, as we pass through the hills and valleys, by the rivers and lakes, beneath the tall mountains where wisdom sits in high places, as we sit in the circle and listen to our friends, our eyes and ears will be open."
Joseph Bruchac

Chief Stanley Jason George, Whapmagoostui First Nation on Moccasin Tracks.mp3

itunes pic

From The Great Whale River in Hudson Bay, Chief Stanley Jason George of the Whapmagoostui Cree First Nation, Quebec Canada visits with Moccasin Tracks, Jan 31, 2013.

Chief George humbly tells us of "The Journey of Nishiyuu"...how the youth approached him and his personal reflections. This is a journey to watch as the youth gather support and arrive to Parliament Hill.


From the Facebook site, this description:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/351350614972320/
please use above link for facebook site******

The Quest of Wisjinichu-Nishiyuu, Quest For Unity

Summary:
7 Youth with two guides wish to walk to Ottawa and arrive in... Parliament Hill. This is a strong message to prove to other First Nations across Canada that the Cree Nation of Quebec are not sellouts, but keepers of the Language, Culture, Tradition and more importantly; today, we still carry the sacred laws of our ancestors.

Mission:
This Quest-Journey will establish and unite our historical allies and restore our traditional trade routes with the Algonquin, Mohawk and other First Nations. The time for Unity is now.

Vision:
Through Unity and Harmony, the quest will revive the voices of our “Anskushiyouch”. Their voices will be heard once more. With their guidance and strength, the Truth to all the sacred teachings will be revived and we will become once more, a powerful United Nations across Turtle Island.

The warriors have awaken and will rise:

The Cree people have always been fierce warriors; they have always been the gatekeepers of the North. They have had many battles and disputes over the territory, and to this day we have never surrendered our land to no nation, not now, not ever.

This land, the earth, the rivers, the winds, the mountains, the clouds and all of the creation, we are the true keepers and will continue to do so until time on earth is over. This Quest, it is time the Youth become the Warriors and the leaders for they are the “Anskushshiyouch” as foretold. The Earth Walkers, the beings put here on earth to protect all of Chisamanitou's Creation. In unity, in harmony, in peace, we will achieve.
