The Creation — Part 2 — Skywoman

so on this turtle she opened her hands and in them was a little dirt and seeds from beneath that special fruit tree and in the other hand was a strawberry plant. She knew she needed more dirt for this plant, by now many animals were around the turtle to see this strange creature. Beavers, otters, and even a muskrat all kinds of animals that were able to live in the water . They noticed she had put the strawberry plant into that little bit of dirt and the too knew it needed more to survive so they all decided they would find dirt for her. They tried one after the other to go down under the water but mant died doing so as the bottom was very far. Then the little muskrat said I will try , he was down way longer than the others he came plopping out of the water as the other and appeared dead as all who tried , they dragged him up on the turtles back. But then inthey saw his stomach move , he was not dead they helped take water out of him in his little paws was dirt in his mouth too , there was enough for the plant and the other seeds , so skywoman put the seeds in dirt and added the rest to the plant. Then she got up and started to sing , to dance in a circle but in a counter clockwise direction. She kept this on and the turtle was growing bigger all the time and the dirt was getting to be more and more, she continued this for a long time untill there was lots of dirt and the turtle was big as maybe a football field. But now skywoman was going to give birth, she would give birth to a girl . This girl would be very special she would grow and get older maybe three times as fast as normal, so in a very short time this girl was now a young woman. They lived well together , but after awhile the daughter became bored and as skywoman danced and sang each day the turtle and dirt was now very very big. The daughter asked her mother to go see what was off in the distance , her mother was at first not sure , but then she taught what could possibly be wrong as they were the only people on there . So the next morning the young woman left and walked for a very long time , maybe a day or more untill she got to the edge of the turtle which was now maybe as bid as a state , and getting bigger all the time. The water lapped at the sides of the turtle she stared off into the distance enjoying what she saw, then all of a sudden she noticed a cloud that looked different than the others , and this strange cloud appeared to be coming toward her, in fact it was . But as it got closer and closer she could tell it was of a human form , it looked like what her mother described as a man. He was dressed in white leather , and was a very handsome man she fell unconcious from excitement as he was next to her now. This man took from a quiver on his back two arrows and placed them on the girls stomach talking , he crossed them , one was a perfect arrow the other warped and crooked , even the point was not good. Then he was gone as the young woman woke she saw him no more just the arrows on her stomach . So she got up and headed home , she walked holding the arrows , but from inside herself she could hear voices , these were the boys or twins she would later give birth too. ok hun I will write more of this later,m im going outside a bit

The Creation Story part 1 — Skywoman

Before the world was created the people lived in a place far above here.. in a place where there was hardly any light at all ,”skyworld” ok.. the only light there was from this one tree a very special tree.. a tree which grew every type of fruit on it . So there was this couple “we will call them ok”, the wife was pregnant she wanted some of the bark from this tree to make tea, so she sent her mate to go get some.. he did not want too.. saying this was a very special tree and maybe harm would come to him if he did take bark. So off he went after some more yelling from the woman . When he reached the tree he noticed at its base a hole , at first he did not approach, then he went and looked in the hole he could see way down. He quickly ran to tell his mate.. she yelled at him for not bringing bark and said she would go see this for herself this hole and she would get the bark herself too. So up the hill she went and when she got there yes there was a hole , so this woman was a very curious one . She leaned and looked into the hole but could not see well. so she got on her hands and knees beneath that special tree and looked down into the hole. she wanted to see better so put her head in there . Not knowing the ground around her was giving way.. she started to fall so frantically trying to grasp anything to get a hold of.. she was grabbing all around but she kept falling through until she was through. She could see far below what appeared to be a greenish color bluish also. Far down below a flock of ducks seen this thing falling.. they were curious so they all lifted off the water and went see this thing.. it appeared to have nothing that would make it survive in this world of water. So they all got together and said we must save this thing. they flew under her she flopped on top of them. So now she was safe , but then the ducks started to tire and now were saying they needed a place to put her on .. then a giant sea turtle said put her on my back so they did . And now since that woman fell from the sky we will call her skywoman

Peace is Warrior goal

We always look towards peace throughout any of our battles. There
is always a plan for peace. This does not mean making another nation
subservient. It means that the nation we fight must understand that we
will fight them until they agree to live peacefully with us under the
Great Law.

We never set out to destroy the other nation. They must agree to
live in peace and equality. If not, then we absorb them and they are no
more. No nation wanted that.If they agreed to the peace, they would retain
their language, culture, government, land and ways.

In our minds, we always wanted to make peace. If the adversary did
not want to make peace with us, then the black wampum string would be
dropped. This meant that we would then fight until we won. The war is
not over until we win. In 1784 the United States sued the Confederacy
for peace. This is because they had done so much harm to the
Confederacy, so we continued to fight with the newly formed United
States. Being a peaceful minded people we agreed to enter into a
peaceful agreement with them which we have lived up to and they continue
to violate.

The Rensken’ra:kete is not a soldier for the king. He is a soldier
of all the People. His name comes from okenra tsi rokete – the soil
that he carries in his pouch to remind him of who he is – a son, a man, a
brother, a husband, a father, a grandfather. It reminds him what his
duties are as a man. He must show utmost respect to the female. The two
combined – the male and female – is the continuation of life. He carries
the soil in his pouch which he hangs around his neck. When he is away
he touches this to remind himself of the land and the people he comes
from.

Historically warriors have been outstanding soldiers.

Historically warriors have been outstanding soldiers. This is only
one aspect. There are examples like the battle of Chateauguay where 250
Mohawks stood against 7000 Americans and repelled them. There are many
other instances such as when 80 stood against 2500 at Queenston Heights
while the British ran away north to St. Catharines Ontario. At
Michilimakinac only a few canoe loads of warriors fought against
thousands. Many colonists did not want to fight the Rotisken’ra:kete.
Some adversaries would just give up and leave. The only real adversaries
were other

Indigenous nations. Both nations respected the specific rules of
war as outlined in the Kaianereh’ko:wa/Great Law of Peace. The Law
states that the “war is not over until it is won”. Many make the mistake
of saying, “We will fight until we die”. But it is really, “We will
fight until we win”.

Many of our tactics were imitated by the settler society. Guerilla
warfare was adopted by the Europeans. For example, the elite covering
themselves in black so as not be seen in the forest is one of our
tactics.

Turtle Shells – some facts


Turtle shells are used to make rattles. These rattles are used in ceremony, specifically to perform the Astowakowa “Great Feather Dance” (Creator’s Dance).
