130 years ago today. December 29, 1890. The Wounded Knee Massacre. Nearly 300 unarmed Lakota women, children and old men executed by the US Army. They had been dancing a “Ghost Dance” where they asked the spirits for just 3 simple things: restore the Earth, return the buffalo, and make the White people disappear. Well, that certainly crossed the line. It was the last “official” massacre by White America in its nearly 400-year long genocide carried out by European invaders and our American government. The USA — founded on genocide, built on the backs of slaves. When we own this and acknowledge how generations of us have reaped the benefits of this violence — as we continue to today — then maybe we can find redemption and make restoration and reparation. Failure to do even that simple imperative dooms us to more of the same and imprisons our American soul for what’s left of our time here on earth.

🙏🏽💔PLEASE READ AND SHARE 💔🙏🏽

30 years ago the MMIWG2S movement began in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver.

Mona Woodward stood with a group of women on the corner of Hastings and Main in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. Indigenous Women were disappearing and these women knew it was time to take action and they began looking for those who had gone missing themselves. This has been grassroots since its beginning. The MMIW Movement grew from THEIR actions 30 years ago.

Mona has spent much of her life fighting for justice, and awareness for MMIWG2S families. She has been there for so many people in their time of need. She has worked with Amnesty International, Human rights watch and has made impactful change in so many lives.

Right now Mona’s daughter Winona is missing and Mona is devastated. Mona needs the MMIWG2S community to please show up for her in the same way.

Please, please share her missing persons flyer.
Please include Winnie and her family in your prayers.

The inability to receive support from others
is a trauma response.

Your “I don’t need anyone, I’ll just do it all myself” conditioning is a survival tactic. And you needed it to shield your heart from abuse, neglect, betrayal, and disappointment from those who could not or would not be there for you.

From the parent who was absent and abandoned you by choice or the parent who was never home from working three jobs to feed and house you.

From the lovers who offered sexual intimacy but never offered a safe haven that honored your heart.

From the friendships and family who ALWAYS took more than they ever gave.

From all the situations when someone told you “we’re in this together” or “I got you” then abandoned you, leaving you to pick up the pieces when sh*t got real, leaving you to handle your part and their part, too.

From all the lies and all the betrayals.

You learned along the way that you just couldn’t really trust people. Or that you could trust people, but only up to a certain point.

Extreme-independence IS. A. TRUST. ISSUE.

You learnt: if I don’t put myself in a situation where I rely on someone, I won’t have to be disappointed when they don’t show up for me, or when they drop the ball... because they will ALWAYS drop the ball EVENTUALLY right?

You may even have been intentionally taught this protection strategy by generations of hurt ancestors who came before you.

Extreme-independence is a preemptive strike against heartbreak.

So, you don’t trust anyone.

And you don’t trust yourself, either, to choose people.

To trust is to hope, to trust is to be vulnerable.

“Never again,” you vow.

But no matter how you dress it up and display it proudly to make it seem like this level of independence is what you always wanted to be, in truth it’s your wounded, scarred, broken heart behind a protective brick wall.

Impenetrable. Nothing gets in. No hurt gets in. But no love gets in either.

Fortresses and armor are for those in battle, or who believe the battle is coming.

It’s a trauma response.

The good news is trauma that is acknowledged is trauma that can be healed.

You are worthy of having support.
You are worthy of having true partnership.
You are worthy of love.
You are worthy of having your heart held.
You are worthy to be adored.
You are worthy to be cherished.
You are worthy to have someone say, “You rest. I got this.” And actually deliver on that promise.
You are worthy to receive.
You are worthy to receive.
You are worthy.

You don’t have to earn it.
You don’t have to prove it.
You don’t have to bargain for it.
You don’t have to beg for it.

You are worthy.
WORTHY.
Simply because you exist.

Flags to be flown at half-staff in honor and memory of World War II Army Veteran Fred Johnson, Sr.

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez and Vice President Myron Lizer issued a proclamation that calls for flags on the Navajo Nation to be flown at half-staff on Friday, Dec. 4, 2020, in honor and memory of World War II U.S. Army veteran Fred Johnson, Sr., who passed away on Tuesday at the age of 103. He was born in Pinon, Ariz. and attended school in Ft. Wingate, N.M. prior to his military service.

“As we mourn the loss of our Diné warrior, U.S. Army PFC Fred Johnson, we also honor and remember all his great sacrifices for our Navajo people and the entire country. During his lifetime, he helped many people through his military service and as a medicine person. He lived a long life full of love, memories, and service to our people. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and his community,” said President Nez.

PFC Johnson served honorably in the United States Army from October 1942 to December 1946 with the 132 Field Artillery during World War II in Italy, France, Germany, Holland, and Scotland. When he entered the Army, he was a fluent Navajo speaker and did not know the English language, but he later became fluent in English, Spanish, and French.

PFC Johnson’s family recalls his stories of seeing the concentration camps, human remains, and open burial sites during the war. He was also present in Berlin, Germany when the German military surrendered and witnessed the waiving of white flags by the German military forces.

Following his military service, PFC Johnson began working with the Santa Fe Railroad for over 25 years until he retired. The Santa Fe Railroad representatives visited him at his home in 2017, when he turned 100 years old. He was also a Native American Church roadman and a proud member of the Pinon Chapter Veterans Organization.

“We thank God for the life of Private First Class Johnson and all of the wonderful blessings he bestowed upon people around the world. In every aspect of his life, he was a loving and compassionate person who cared greatly for his people and his family. We ask all of our Navajo people to keep his spirit and his family in your prayers at this time,” said Vice President Lizer.

PFC Johnson was married to the late Glennie Johnson for 59 years, until the time of her passing in 2007. Together they had six children and also cared for several other children from other families. They also have 32 grandchildren, 59 great-grandchildren, and 14 great great-grandchildren.

“On behalf of the Navajo Veterans Administration, I offer my condolences and prayers for the family of Private First Class Johnson. We honor and remember his life and the legacy that will live on,” said Navajo Veterans Administration Executive Director James D. Zwierlein.

U.S. Army PFC Fred Johnson, Sr. will be laid to rest on Friday, Dec. 4, 2020, at a private gravesite service in Pinon, Ariz. The service will be conducted in accordance with CDC guidelines due to risks related to COVID-19.

We are aware that the worker camps around the North Dakota XL pipeline have lead to many disappeared women in that area, and the same mind set that allows for rape and destruction of Native bodies (and lands) has also underlies our climate crisis.
