Oki - For all of you out there who think you understand the Ways of the Native People of this Land, watch this movie and then ask yourself how much you understand. We have suffered all of our lives from the disillusionment and hate of the white people. From your selfishness and greed and your religious malarkey that continues breed the type of priests in this movie. You call yourselves civilized and yet you continue to turn away from your own countrymen. We fight along side you in your wars that have nothing to do with us, we suffer when you suffer and we pay what you pay and yet you ignore us who are more in need than any other race that you can name. Our men suffer a death rate six times higher than the white man and our children commit suicide rather than suffer as their parents have and yet you ignore us. What separates white people from the evil that you bring down on us? - Two Feathers Redhawk

World Trade Center and the Pentagon were deeply
shocking and very sad. I regard such terrible
destructive actions as acts of hatred, for violence is
the result of destructive emotions. Events of this
kind make clear that if we allow our human
intelligence to be guided and controlled by negative
emotions like hatred, the consequences are disastrous.

How to respond to such an attack is a very difficult
question to answer. Of course, those who are dealing
with the problem may know better, but I feel that
careful consideration is necessary and that it is
appropriate to respond to an act of violence by
employing the principles of non-violence. This is of
great importance. The attacks on the United States
were shocking, but retaliation that involves the use
of further violence may not be the best solution in
the long run.

We must continue …
