Bring Back the Medicine Wheel Teachings! Response to Milwaukee Shooting 2-26-2020

I am Wenona Gardner and I am enrolled in the Stockbridge-Munsee band of Mohican Nation and a descendent of African slaves. I regularly go to the Indian Council of Elderly for lunch 3 times every week near 33rd & Kilbourn not far from Marquette University High School. I am outraged that this poor African man was racially discriminated against including forced to file a racial discrimination law suit and still receiving nooses by persistent racist white employees. My African Ancestors are crying out over the persistent racial discrimination in the city of Milwaukee deemed in the news the worst place for African Americans to live in the entire country! I am pissed this company allowed such disgusting racial discrimination even after they were nailed with a racial discrimination lawsuit! 😡As both a Native American minority and a descendent of African slaves I witness racial discrimination regularly in this city. My Medicine Woman Mom Hail Eagle 🦅 Woman taught me all four colors red, yellow, black and white of man are each important, sacred, and valuable! All 4 colors each have wisdom to teach each other. Bring back the Medicine Wheel Teachings of Race to Milwaukee which in Potawatomi means Gathering of the Waters!

*Trigger Warning Rape, Sexual Assault, Hostage by Gunpoint, Incest, Child Endangerment

I need to talk to you about my baby Mohican sister Jessica who is only 17 living unsupervised custody with my Alcoholic Registered Sex Offender Father who Raped & Sexually Assaulted 4 women in my family including my Aunt Barbie Frank, my Grandmother Carrie Lee Wood, my Sister, and myself. Since because he is a violent alcoholic and a Registered Sex Offender, I do not believe he should have unsupervised custody of Jessica. First Nations Elder Carolyn C. told me to take my grievance to the Wisconsin State Attorney’s Office, the Wisconsin State Legislators, and the Media. So that is why I am publishing this story.

When I was 4 years old in 1977 near 11th Street a couple blocks from a National Ave in Milwaukee, WI, my biological mother Kim Gardner tried to take me and run from my father because she learned my Mohican Father Grady Guy Gardner Jr had been sexually assaulting me to the point of vaginal bleeding which my mother Kim Gardner later would also testify against Grady Guy Gardner Jr in Milwaukee court in 1981 which is a testimony submitted officially to Milwaukee Court. However, my violent alcoholic father Grady got a gun and held me & my mom hostage at gun point including repeatedly firing the gun. I remember shaking every time the gun was fired off & red & blue lights flashing outside my window & police sirens 🚨 that would torture me in PSTD nightmares for the rest of my life. Milwaukee Police came and surrounded the house & my mother’s father Grandfather Lee Dillman was called, he entered the house, and talked Grady down to surrender the gun and Grady was hauled by Milwaukee police. Grady is a violent alcoholic repeat serial rapist and sexual predator of women. This is why Jessica should not be living unsupervised custody of my father Grady.

I am ready to do this and report him to media and state legislators & state attorney, but fear taking this story to this public level will be such a stressful journey that it will shake my sobriety to the core.

So I am coming right and saying the Milwaukee and Franklin Police, Milwaukee Child Welfare, and the Stockbridge-Munsee band of Mohican Tribe under the leadership of President Shannon Holsey have failed to do everything to protect my Mohican baby sister Jessica from our sexual predator Mohican father Grady Guy Gardner Jr.

I can not bear the thought that Jessica might get abused the same way Grady abused me, my Aunt, my Grandma, and sister. Please pray for the safety and protection of my baby sister Jessica. #ProtectJessica
