Indigenous resistance movements in distress
The collective mobilization of resistance that explodes across our Territories every so often eventually pacifies itself back into co-operating within the constructs of neo-colonialism. We can see this where those engaged in the recent Wetsuwe’tin Solidarity Campaigns have now shifted into the “Stay The Fuck Home” Movement.

This social conditioning is understandable for those influenced by group-think, fear, and the mass media entertainment propaganda machine. What is disheartening is that the Spiritual Leaders, Celebrity Activists and Warriors who’ve become the face of Resistance are now following orders where the Resistance has become shockingly silent.
Where are our Movement Leaders? If we are not organizing as a collective to become self-sustainable and unified then we need to question what this pandemic actually is if we claim to be “woke.” I am not saying this virus is fake as the seasonal flu kills thousands each year and bio-warfare has been waged on people by governments in the past, but we need to question the fear that is being produced by the Government and Media.
There are many credible Scientists and Doctors sharing scientific facts that question the official narrative who are not being given a platform on daily newscasts and who are unattached to big pharma which is a huge red flag. I will leave links at the bottom to consider hearing some of these perspectives.
The Leaderships operating under the BIA and INAC systems will continue to “hang-around-the-fort” and propagate the oppressors narrative. They are going with the government-funded response to this pandemic in which they are only helping to turn our communities into sitting ducks. There is no community participation in discussing and making decisions that effect our lives which is taking a back seat as we are in “lock down.” There are no community meetings happening although many of our communities have the technology to make this happen. Many communities are in an election year (although most are being postponed) – however it doesn’t matter who is elected in this system as it is only a tool to serve the on-going assimilation agendas.
We do need to protect our communities, but there is a difference between being cautious and being careful. Being cautious is reactionary, and based on the emotion of fear which makes us unable to think clearly and makes us easy to be controlled. Being careful is an action where we use our intelligence intelligently. We are a powerful and spiritual people where Creation gave us intelligence. Our Spirituality is based on critical thinking to use our intelligence intelligently and put it into action.
Critical thinking has been under attack in the recent decade and our movements have become hijacked. The least likely place where critical thinking and free speech is being oppressed is by SJW’s outrage culture where a privileged white narrative is at the helm. This demographic is mostly made up of white fragile millennials goes to extremes to shame and discredit anyone who does not think as they do. In our communities – due to effects of colonialism – I’ve observed that a perspective does not become popular or legit until first it comes from a charismatic white person.
Accusing others of “Lateral Violence” is something that is also being misused that also needs to be acknowledged in the issue of critical thinking. Those attempting to hold others accountable are being accused of using lateral violence in an attempt to be silenced by the actual ones guilty of lateral violence. There are also smear campaigns, false accusations in our movements where people play into taking sides.
These are all key factors as to why many won’t question things when it becomes unpopular to do, so but fuck that shit. Who walks into struggle to become popular anyways? The reality however is that our Movements and Spiritual Circles have become Fan Clubs and Popularity Contests and hijacked and it is hard for us to share the critical thinking required in these times.
Responses I’ve seen from Spiritual People is that they’ve received messages through ceremony directly from Spirit and Creator. I do not discredit these messages but I question why these messages that come from another plane are so generic that all we need to do is be thankful and keep prayer and recognize that we’re in a time of change.
There are no new ceremonies, medicines or dances being sent from Spirit for our protection but Spiritual leaders and Elders continue to say “We must learn from our Past.” If we are to “learn from our past” then we need to acknowledge that bio-warfare was used on us to exterminate us and vaccines/sterilization imposed to lower our numbers.
The Government, Military, Church and Police all engaged together in genocidal acts upon our people. Our Rights were taken away and we were given a Pass System to leave our Reserves so we can participate in society. Our history is not a Conspiracy Theory. Those who shame those of us who are justified in questioning what is going on should be the one’s considered the conspiracy theorists.
Those who serve in the military and police forces sadly will take orders which will only be a benefit to the “ruling class.” Those who served in the oppressor’s forces must use those skills to help mobilize in a resistance to benefit the people of what is coming. We have a choice to stand up and not be fearful. There are more of us as concerned People globally then there are in the global elites who only want to gain more profits from depopulation, quarantining and control, crashing economies, taking away our rights by bringing it all on through technocracy.
The Matrix and Skynet fiction is becoming reality very fast now. If there was ever a time for a Resistance it is now.
