John Kane on FIRST PERSON RADIO 7/5/17

Join Laura Waterman Wittstock on Wednesday, July 5, 2017 as she talks with Mohawk radio and podcast host John Kane about the fight for native sovereignty and continued independence from the European settlers’  rebellion against England. The  U.S. Declaration of Independence stands against Thomas Jefferson who attempted to take a swipe at King George of England by accusing the native nations of being his minions and Jefferson sank to  name calling to make his thin point. "He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions.” The real savagery was when Gen George Washington sent “Mad Anthony” Wayne into native territory to burn villages, corn fields and food storage sheds, kill people of any age or condition and earn for his boss the title of “Town Destroyer.” Only the widespread killing of old men, women, and children had the effect of subduing the fierce fight for freedom fought by legions of native warriors.
