Women Warriors 'Upholding our Responsibility'

     As women warriors it is up to us to ensure our traditions and customs are followed and upheld. We must strive to reclaim our rightful place in our societies and re-learn and revive our language, songs, dancers, ceremonies, as well as, wear our traditional clothing and make our tools an baskets. As women warriors we must conduct ourselves as traditional Indian women to hold onto our ways and let our Nations rise again.

     As women warriors we must always acknowledge that the impressionable young women and girls are looking at us for examples and on how to conduct themselves as women. We as women, cannot let abuse in our communities continue. Our women warriors councils have an obligation to the children-when we have women and children that are disrespect in our communities, through abuse or rape, it is up to us to ensure our traditional laws are enforced, no matter how savage or "uncivilized" the rest may think it is. From the Caribbean to Secwepemc Territory the penalty for sexual abuse is death. I speak about this because of the abuse that plagues our communities and takes a grip on the lives of our young women. It will not be tolerated any more because any abuse or disrespect on women is a disrespect to our Mother, the Earth.

     We can no longer tolerate any type of disrespect by men. Men treating women like 'b*****s' and following the pitiful ways women are treated on music videos and movies. To all you men out there that keep a women around as a maid, cook and sex toy you better look at yourself because you are not a warrior and certainly do not hold any respect or honor in the eyes of traditional women warrior.

    We, as women warriors, need to stand strong and powerful again; we need to organize ourselves and work together in order to protect our Land, Water and Peoples. We are the ones that will lead the way, we are the ones that will give birth to the future warriors and teach them what is needed to uphold our instructions from the the Creator. We must always be alert and patrol our communities and territory and watch for enemies. The day when Indian women and men will need to stand side by side to fight our enemy and demand the respect we deserve has come-it is NOW!

     There has been no Indigenous Resistance Movement where women were not involved. Remember that the time has come-and to the men you must always remember the words of a Taino Elder Women Warrior, "any man out there don't talk that militant s**t to me with a white b***h by your side."

     And to all you Indian men out there that think you can survive without an Indian woman, YOU'RE WRONG!
