As a Native American enrolled in the Mohican and also from Oneida, Brothertown, Narragansett, and Ojibwe Tribes ….all I see is the Genocide that is still going on today. All around me. And it kills my spirit.
I remember being a guest speaker at UWM and telling younger Native American kids in school my college experience. And I explained I am from the Mohican Tribe. This person came up to me afterwards and told me to my face that I couldn’t be Mohican because the Mohican Tribe is extinct. I hate the movie & the book Last of Mohicans because they glorify Genocide of my Mohican Tribe set to a catchy Soundtrack. And my soul bleeds.
My Mohican Tribe is facing extinction today due to ongoing Genocide. So I got off my couch and decided to run for office. I am a Daughter of a Medicine Woman Wambli Wasu Winyan – Hail Eagle Woman. I am a Grand Daughter of Chief John Konkapot an American Revolutionary War Hero who helped create this country serving as Captain in George Washington’s Army. I am a Native American Witch whose greatest strength is my Spirit.
Building on my Strength of Spirit, I have committed to praying an hour each day to heal our country but also our Mother Earth. So far I have prayed 1,075 hours. I have a Prayer Circle. I would like to invite you to pray with me for our country & all Mother Earth in whatever way you believe in.
