Our Beloved Kin: Remapping A New History of King Philip's War

Tall Oak Weeden, elder and activist

This society has terrorism at its very foundation. With the brutal slaughter of any Native people who stood in the way of the taking of Indian lands. This spiritual, emotional physical and environmental terrorism that included and even celebrated the burning alive of even the beautiful and totally innocent little babies and helpless elders easily fits any true definition of terrorism, to force any group of human beings into total submission! When you add to that the forced captivity of an entire race of people to work the stolen Indian lands for the sole purpose of greed for the almighty dollar, that characterizes this for-profit society to this very day, it becomes so easy to see that the so-called “war on terror” must be completely retroactive if it is to have any validity at all, and not simply a tool for manipulation of the masses. Considering this reality, ISIS has done nothing that the Pilgrims and Puritans did not do before them, in the establishment of this culture of deceit and denial, we have all be totally submerged in for nearly four hundred years!
