Mohawk Bear Clan Mother, Wakerakats:te
Louise Herne, Mohawk Bear Clan Mother of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, League of Six Nations (also known as the Iroquois) resides in the northeastern region of the United States and Canada. She is born of a specific matrilineal-line known as Iakoiane who are the Keepers of Tehana’karíne. Their inherent authority is to protect the lands for future generations. She carries the honor and the responsibility of naming the children, the people, and the land.
I come to you as a writer to not share my words so much, but to share the words and influences of this most extraordinary individual. Because so much has happened so quickly and in such a short amount of time, I will be brief and simply list events by date of which essays/blogs will follow with information. My intention is to set a platform here for the Bear Clan Mother to speak to you directly.
In February of 2021, Louise gathered her thoughts and set them down into a declaration titled, Kahnistenserah: Mother Law. Mommabear, as she is affectionately called by many, sensed a grave period of time was upon her and her people. She wanted to be prepared thus, she wrote the law.
Circumstances quickly accelerated in response. Mother Law was declared in June of 2021, while at the same time, 751 unmarked graves of native children were discovered at one residential school in Canada (and there are many more). One month later, July 1st 2021, The Cradleboard Mandate was served to Canada and Parliament. One year after that, a series of powerful events were to ensue at the Vatican, in Philadelphia and Quebec, Canada.
Mohawk Bear Clan Mother received an invitation to the vatican in March of 2022, for a private audience with the pope. She declined, but sent her close delegates in her place to represent her and her people from March 28 to April 1, 2022.
4/1/2022: Cradleboard came home to the mothers from the vatican: Rematriation.
5/10/2022: Bear Clan Mother and her delegates went to Penn State University in Philadelphia, PA to address stolen lands and the Morrill Land-Grant Act of 1862.
5/12/2022: Hugely historic, they met at Independence Hall, Philadelphia with Mayor and City Council members. The Haudenosaunee sat in the room where their ancestors sat where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Later that same day, they spent quality time at their Wampum lot, (Welcome Park) Philadelphia, PA
7/30 - 8/4/2022: pope apologizes but it’s not enough - Rescind & Revoke the Document of Discovery!!! Quebec, Canada.
10/12/2022: Mohawk Bear Clan Mother met with Mark Miller of Canadian Indian Affairs — September 30th will now be declared: EVERY CHILD MATTERS DAY.
Prior to the Mother Law being written in 2021, Louise and a closely-related small group of women went to the city of Philadelphia in March of 2020 to “check-in” on a small parcel of land that was gifted to them in 1755 by John Penn, William Penn’s grandson. What they found was disturbing, to say the least. However, it did set them on a course that would burn through the next few years into an emotional conflagration as news would reach them, and the world, about the unmarked graves and ghastly treatment of their children.
Louise Bear Clan Mother, and her people, have guided us into the New World of which so many speak about, but have no clue to its reality. The horrific treatment suffered by these indigenous people of North America (that they call Turtle Island) are the same people who gave us, The Great Law of Peace that inspired our United States Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
Full circle we have come. The pain and horrific injustices they have experienced are now clear for all to see — and we must see — otherwise it will be repeated. Disassociation is no longer accepted. Countless un-marked graves of indigenous children have been unearthed - children and babies who were stolen from their mother’s arms and families were beaten, tortured, sexually abused and murdered.
Canada’s government and the Catholic Church are to blame and all who knew and said nothing. There will be accountability. It has already begun. The Doctrine of Discovery, a hellish and inhuman papal bull from 1472, that still holds sway in our legal and unlawful courts, must be revoked and rescinded.
At the same time, while the world witnesses the First Nation Peoples' trauma and horrid injustices — Crimes Against Children and Humanity — we (in turn), are forced to see that countless children and women, from every nation and from every culture around the world, have also suffered from the same hidden elite/cabal/deep state monsters of power, cruelty and heartlessness. They are done. They are no more.
We have all been imprisoned but could not see the cage through the trees. We are one human family and it has taken the Bear Clan Mother and her community of courageous souls, with their set of natural laws, to help us find the way out to FREEDOM as our hearts become one.
With great gratitude to our sisters and brothers of the Mohawk, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, Seneca, Tuscarora, Leni-Lenape, we now begin to move into a Golden Age of Peace. May beauty be before you, behind you, beside you, above, below and within you. Niawen.
