White Supremacy vs The Peacemaker

Thousands of years ago when the Haudenosaunee people were in conflict warring among each other, the Five Nations were in turmoil in North Eastern Ontario Canada and the USA territory.

Things had gotten so bad around Lake Huron the people had become cannibals, eating flesh, killing, warring with each other while creating fear and jealousy.

Lucky for the Iroquois Nation a baby was born to the neighboring tribe of the Wyandot or Huron Nation near Lake Ontario.

As the baby became a man the Great Creator had a dream that this Wyandot baby had incredible ability’s and gifts. Soon this baby became a man and had a vision to travel to neighboring villages. At the same time his Grandmother had a dream that the Creator wanted him to restore peace and harmony among all people, especially the Five Nations.

This man was to become known as The Peacemaker. As the Peacemaker grew, he realized he had a gift from the Great Creator and a message in his mind, body and spirit that he had to share with other people about peace, harmony, unity and righteousness.

As The Peacemaker prepared himself to leave home and journey to spread his message he asked the Great Creator to help him build a special canoe, something that would show a beauty and power as he traveled to neighboring villages. So the Creator helped the Peacemaker build his first canoe. It was a beautiful canoe which he built of white stone and when this canoe was finished the Peacemaker set out on Lake Ontario and his people were in awe that this Stone Canoe would float as he paddled away from his homeland.

The Peacemaker knew in his heart that what his Grandmother had dreamed was the same idea in his own mind - that he had a gift and message to share with the world.          


Not far from where the Peacemaker set off on his Stone Canoe journey to bring his message of peace, power, unity and righteousness to the people - there was a man called Tadadaho.

Tadadaho was working with his obsession, with negative values, creating fear, war and murder among the tribes.                                            

Today there is another man who thinks he has a powerful message but not one of peace and unity or harmony.  It is a rant, about hatred and racism in Canada and those who want to build on the idea of White Supremacy.

His name is Gabriel Sohier Chaput. Chaput lives in Montreal and is highlighted in a Montreal Gazette investigation by journalists Shannon Carranco, Jon Milton and Christopher Curtis. They are featured on Google explaining the activities of May 16, 2018 and “The White Supremacy Organization” and the young neo-nazi fascist Gabriel Chaput.

Once I had a look at the information on these neo-Nazis, it made me think of all the struggles of our people and the black people of Africa like Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and even our missing  and murdered women.

My Spirit brother Mac McCloud says there is no place for hate or anger in native people because it will give us a heart attack.

Nelson Mandela spent about thirty years in prison from his oppressors and learned in his own mind that he had to forgive the white oppressor and carry no anger or need for revenge. 

While Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, his colleague Bishop Tutu continued the struggle outside the prison walls for African people. The time of Apartheid was a time of freedom and genocide because people were disappearing, tortured, and imprisoned for protesting and speaking about their human rights.

Mothers and fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers were jailed indefinitely and mass murder and torture occurred amongst the African tribes yet when the public outcry began, the truth was hidden until the people brought evidence to the colonial court system and the world began to see and demand justice for the people of Africa.

The African people themselves let their cry be heard and could seen no other way out of dictatorship but to fight for justice and their children’s freedom from suffering.

Nelson Mandela and Bishop Tutu fought for their people and never carried anger, hate or revenge towards their oppressor. 


Mahatma Gandhi   might have been the most beautiful leader the world has had, taking his people out of the hands of colonialism and showing his people the power of unity, ceremony and peace.

Mahatma said the only way to peace is by nonviolence and love. But it took discipline of the good mind and ceremony to bring justice, freedom, unity and independence back to India. These stories of equality, freedom and peace were created by leaders who believed in the higher purpose of Human Beings and sacrifice with the power of the Universe God or Creator.

Very little was ever accomplished by atheism. Mandela, Tutu, Gandhi, Crazy Horse, Fools Crow, Brant and the Peacemaker were leaders who stood with the peoples mind, body and spirit and always with the natural laws of natural life around them. They understood the respect for Mother Earth that she, the giver of all life, has had on our sacred journey.

These leaders stood up for peace, power, equality, righteousness and respect for creation. 

The Peacemaker set out on Lake Ontario, but could see not far from the shores that there was a great lodge built in a huge circle.  As he drew near, a woman stood behind a huge fire burning as if to greet Peacemaker.

As the Peacemaker introduced himself and his mission to bring peace and harmony to all people the woman said adamantly that there was trouble everywhere among the Mohawk people there.

The woman introduced herself as Jigonsaseh of the Great Cat Nation. This woman was both strong and gentle in nature. She asked the Peacemaker to sleep in her lodge, but noted that all visitors were asked to leave there weapons outside the lodge.

The Peacemaker assured Jigonsaseh that he carried no weapon. The next day the Peacemaker walked to the nearby swamp where he was told the most dangerous warrior, Tadadaho was living. Jigonsaseh went with him, along with other community elders.

They began singing a song of peace to the Tadadaho, and slowly he emerged out of the swamp and stood in front of the Peacemaker with his hair swimming with snakes and all of his incredible power and hate. As the women kept singing slowly the snakes began to fall from his head and then he, Tadadaho began to look like a human being instead of a anger monster.           


As the Peace Maker began to comb Tadadahos hair, he spoke to Tadadaho of peace harmony the need to reason so to bring calmness to his people then he spoke of Mother Earth and all the natural life and gifts that the Great Creator had given Human Beings to be one with.

Then the Peace Maker said to Tadadaho, “would you like to use your mind for peace and would you like to stand for The Great Law and govern your people with a Good Mind.”

The Peace Maker offered Tadadaho the position to be chief of all chiefs if he could use his energy for peace instead of murder!

The Peacemaker then asked Tadadaho to lead the unity of tribes to become The Haudenosaunee Iroquois Five Nations, later to become Six Nations, in unity for peace through the use of reason and harmony.    

Uncle Robertjohn of the Seneca, said that White Supremacy is everywhere in the USA and they are the rich and wealthy who refuse to share and take care of Mother Earth and the people.

The White Supremacists are negative but the Good Mind is positive energy.

The Light of our Great Creator is everywhere on Mother Earth, the same light from Brother Sun, the same light that beats in our hearts.    

After Peacemaker finished reasoning with Tadadaho, he said, you will lead our 49 chiefs now and you will stand for the Great Law. You will lead the Haudenosaunee Iroquois Five Nations Confederacy and the chiefs will be made by our leader of our woman Jigonsaseh of the Great Cat Nation.                

There is no place for White Supremacy in Canada or the USA.

And today there are too many native and non native woman disappearing and missing. Our countries need peaceful loving citizens that protect our children from both hatred and the predators.
