LaNada War Jack lent her support at the Hawaii “State Capitol,” one of the many simultaneous protests across the world on 10/7 in support of upholding the absolute sacredness of Mauna Kea:
“Aloha! My name is LaNada War Jack. I am from the Shoshone Bannock Tribes, Fort Hall Indian Reservation in Idaho. Some of you may have heard about the Alcatraz Indian Occupation in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1969. It was 45 years ago when Native American students occupied Alcatraz Island in solidarity with our ancestors and people who survived through the genocide. We wanted justice and at the very least enforcement of our treaties made with US Government. Those treaties were made to stop the further slaughter of our people. Our struggles continue in various forms and I want you to know that we send our prayers on light for all Indigenous peoples world-wide and for your efforts to protect and stop the further desecration of the sacred Mauna Kea, on the island of Hawaii. Stay strong in spirit, song and dance and know that we all share the same feelings and concerns for our sacred sites and we will continue to pray for each other to maintain all land and life in balance.
In her latest composition LaNada War Jack addresses the atrocity that is today, Columbus Day:
Changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day is far over due. As Native Indigenous people, we applaud the City of Seattle and the other cities who have set the new standard for change. This makes it visible and embarrassing for the US Government to maintain their colonial and genocidal federal holiday, which many American people ignorantly support and represent. We need all Americans who believe in truth and justice to wake up as we only have one percent of the Native population left after the holocaust we came through and we need to unite and make everyone aware.
