On January 1, 2013 - Call to all Pipe Carriers, Keepers of Bundles, Sweat Lodges, and Ceremonies

A Call Out of Extreme Importance & Significance from our Dear Friend EMIL BELL

Christmas has always been one of the saddest day of my life, my "Mother" made the journey to the spirit world on Christmas day in 1951. I was nine years when this happened and the most excruciating pain you could experience, with time the pain is bearable, but I still experience a deep sadness. The principal of the Beauval Indian Residential School wouldn't allow me to go to the funeral of my "Mother". We are in the process of the Truth and Reconciliation and I still don't get what that was all about, do we forgive our oppressers? Few of the oppressers fall into the catagory of psychopaths and sociopaths and have no feelings for what they do. The majority have feelings and they have this man made ritual of confessing. They go through the act of confessing for their horrendous crimes against humanity, and they are told, say three hail mary's and one, our father and your sins are forgiven. But they keep coming back again and again and again and confessing for the same crimes, the confessional is a revolving door. These crimes or sins fall under the catagory of the assimilation policy, white paper policy, the buffalo jump etc. They are all an attack on the identity, language, culture, family, belief system etc. The pope, steve harper made a public confession and people rejoiced, harper apologized to the Aboriginal People for past sin committed by past governments and other people, intending on getting, all the land and resources from Aboriginal People. It was not an apology, it was, damage control, a public relation scheme. Greed, short sighted vision (to the closest Bank), and no value on human life are very powerful forces that drive people like steven harper and his croonies and the multi national corporations. I thank the "Creator" and the GrandMothers/Fathers for the gifted, four poweful Young Women of the "Idle No More" movement and the many other Powerful Women/Men who have come into my life. These Young Women have conducted themselves in a manner that is very admirable. These are the true leaders, in the struggle for "Mother Earth", the other life forms that have sustained us from the begining of time and for our Children, GrandChildren and the ones, not yet born. At this time allow me, the opportunity to thank my "Mother" GrandMother(s), GreatGrandMother(s), Aunts, my biological Daughter, and my two adopted Daughters, Grand Children and Nosismak, for helping me for what I am. And, I thank you for not taking my right to be sad for the loss of my "Mother", on this day.

Four (4) Founding Woman of Idle No More (L-R)
Sheelah McLean, Nina Wilson,  Sylvia McAdam,  & Jessica Gordon 
The four Young Women came at a very opportune time, and they are a gift from the "Creator", as are all the other Women who have supported the movement in the struggle against the distruction of "Mother Earth" and the elimination of future generations.

It is with this in mind, on New Years Day, I'm humbly putting out this request to Women/Men Pipe Carries, Keepers of the Sacred Bundles, Sweat Lodge Operaters, the many gifted with Sacred Ceremonies, to lite up the Sacred Fires and Pray so that we can save "Mother Earth" from further distruction, for Future Generation. 

For me to say that, I'm not afraid to die, I wouldn't be honest. As I stated, when I began the hunger strike (on the 12th of December) if we do not see anything positive, thirty days after the start on Jan. 10/13, I'm willing to give my life so future generations can survive and enjoy the many gifts from the "Creator". I have a lot of very good reason to want to live, and I have a lot of faith in all of the Aboriginal People and our Sisters and Brothers of other color, who are in this struggle to save "Mother Earth" for those that are living and those not yet born.

Thank You and keep the movement Peaceful, our Children are watching, via "Mother Earth" and Future Generations.

Elder Emil Bell

  3. My name is Winston Adams, from Newfoundland. I learned about the mistreatment of the aboriginal people form my father's journals. He had experienced their plight in the 1930s and said they had been robbed and cheated by the white men of his and past generations. In 1983, I realized that we were on an environmental self destructive ouurse. I feel a kinship with aboriginals attitude towards Mother Earth, and the need for sustainable development. The Myan predicted the end of an age on Dec 21. I wonder if Idle No More is a positive outcome of this prosphey. We are told by our scientists that we must reduce our worldwide use of fosil fuels by 80 by 2050 if we wish to save ourselves on this Earth. We ignore our own scientic advise. It seems to me that if we disrespect Mother Earth as we continue to do then our human race is doomed. You struggle for dignity for your people and your sacrifice is for all of us. I pray to our Creator for you and pray that those in power will have wisdom to halt the destructive ways now practised.

    2. My Father crossed over on Christmas Day 2006. It was a good day to die as he could not let go because he was a flight engineer and navigator he said he was grounded. He was skin and bones. my brothers and sister and I lifted him off his bed and he shot off like a rocket. He was 80 years elder. I am sorry you lost your mother at such a young age
      On New Years Day I wil be in a Sweat Lodge (Inipi) I will say good Prayers for the earth and especially for the people. We are given charge of the earth. People are suffering or indifferent or pre occupied. If the people perish spiritually and psychologically, so does the earth . And So I pray for the people of every culture to be healed, educated, fed, to understand and be understood. I pray for a healthy Vision of prosperity and the knowledge to carry it out.

  4. Chi Miigwetch Chief Theresa Spence for your strength and courage. I look at my children and I think of you and what you are doing and what you are giving. Not only for my children and Aboriginal people but for all Nations worldwide. I would like to encourage people of all races who have the future of humanity and the earth in their best interest, to stand together. It doesn't matter which side of the earth we are on, we share the same planet, and should care enough to make a difference for our future generations. My pipe will be lit. Sending good thoughts and love to you and your family Chief Spence. <3

    1. Fasting, (not starving) is often used as a tool to make a political statement, to protest, or to bring awareness to a cause. It's a method of non-violent resistance - a political protest, or to provoke feelings of guilt, or to achieve a goal such as a policy change. Some Activits use fasting to bring attention to a cause and to pressure authority or government to act.

      Those fasting as a part of the Idle No More movement are doing their part to gain awareness/education to the governments social and environmental injustices. The government's prime minister efforts to sell out and allow mother nature to be raped by corporations needs to be addressed, and fasting is only a small part of the movement. Suggesting, other ways to make a political statement is being done by others. Allow those fasting to do their part. Be supportive, not critical of their part.

  8. Thanks so much for including with this letter from Elder Emil Bell that great photo of who I assume are the four ladies who began Idle No More. Could you please tell us who is who, from left to right? I think that it really helps for us to be able to put faces on the all-too-often anonymous people who are responsible for big things.

    1. I agree, editing of this very impotent message should be updated so we can gain a clear picture of the writer, administers, editors, people in the picture, Etc. And It sounds like someone is taking their life, that is a very scary thought, but I believe me, I do understand the seriousness and support the message, this call out article needs a bit more clarification from paragraph to paragraph, beginning to end.
