who can speak?

Brothers and Sisters: We are alarmed at the evidence that is before us….The people who plant the lands that we have occupied for thousands of years display no love for the life of this place….We point out to you the Spiritual Path of Righteousness and Reason. We bring to your thoughts and minds that right-minded human beings seek to promote above all else the life of all things.

~ Passages from Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy
Statement to the World, May 1979
