Native American Lakota star The Future of Our Nations: Choosing to Have Our Babies FreeNative American Lakota star

    During the liberation of the Independent North American Indian State of Ganienkeh, the Mohawks sworn to secrecy to the amount of people that were preset at the village-just as we must do with the birth of our children, we must never let our enemy know how many of our children are born FREE.

    My sister who honored our instructions from the Creator and had her daughter out on the land, away from the chaos of the hospital system, I gave her much respect. I too will do the same. I was honored to be there during the birth of her daughter, which was the most powerful experience I have been a part of. She gave birth outside surrounded by snow-capped mountains, with a f ire at the foot of her bed, fir boughs laid upon the ground, women hand drumming and smudge burning. Her mother, father, brothers, sisters and companion were all there with her. I give her much respect for her choice to register the birth within the white-man's system.

    Being 7 months pregnant at this present time I look forward to having our baby out on the Land-this is where the strength and honor of Indian women is earned. This is nothing new, our ancestors have always had their babies out on the Land, the traditional way. We built and formed Nations this way, we became strong warriors this way and we raised our children knowing that this was the only way. That this was the only way to honor the Creator and the life of the child was to welcome them into this world-the Natural World.

    As the women, the children bearers, the life-givers of our Nations we need to begin to realize that it has only been a short time since contact and colonization and only a short time since hospitals, western medicines, painkillers and 'doctors'. We need to let go of the dependency upon their system and stop fearing what we already know is the right ways to give birth. we don't need the Canadian, American or any foreign occupying force to tell us, the Indigenous women of the Land, that we need to register our babies, that we need to go for regular check-ups in their hospitals, that we need an ultrasound of painkiller.

    What we need, is to let our own People know that we will rise with a new spirit of warrior women who will reclaim our rightful place in our societies and give birth to a new generation free from the oppression and invisible to their system and control. We can have our babies free-we can let our babies live free. Our Nations depend on us-the future depends on us.
