This is Part 1 of a video series created by Real People’s Media that examines the rise of solidarity movement with the Wet’suwet’en in February of 2020.

Here’s the first language video on my new youtube channel “Kanyen’kéha Tewathró:ri”. In this video I teach how to make a basic active verb chart using the verb “to stay at home” / “to remain in one’s dwelling”, since it’s relevant during this pandemic season.
“Band Councils can’t collect any government money unless you go into a state of emergency. That’s the unfortunate part and that’s why you’ve got provinces and municipalities all calling these. You get no funding unless you do. That’s an interesting position for our people to be in; we’re really fucked. It gets back to my original point – we shouldn’t be closing our businesses. We should be doing everything in our power to make commerce safe.”
Having an international bridge run through Kawehnoke (a.k.a Cornwall Island), subjects Akwesasronon living on Kawehnoke to restrictions, interrogation, abuse and racism anytime they leave the island. When it comes to identification, both the US and Canadian Customs accept the INAC cards as a form of ID, from Onkwehonwe travelling through their borders; but the Haudenosaunee passport a.k.a the “Red Card” is still a hit or miss when travelling through CBSA.

As the Rotiskarewake (Bear Clan), we would like to clarify our position regarding our brother and son Kanenhariyo. He does have a voice in the nation and he continues to work in a way that advances Nation to Nation relationships. Kanenhariyo is a valuable asset to our Clan and Nation. We have not agreed to remove his name or silence him, and he is to be treated with the full respect and dignity as any one else living with the full protection of the Kayanerehkowa.

While we do not normally publicly comment on attacks from trolls and social media haters, the situation has now escalated to one in which threats of vigilante violence have been made against RPM members and the participants at the Wyman Rd. camp. These threats have been made online and in person. The fingerprints of police involvement in “bad-jacketing” RPM members for violence are all over recent events.
