“They want to destroy our spirit. They want us to not understand our natural relationship to the earth and our relationship to our spirit. They want us to continue to give respect and validity to their forms of power…

…True power is natural. A blizzard is true natural power, a tornado and a hurricane and an earthquake. These things of natural power that come from earth are powers that man cannot control. The federal government does not want us to recognize that as people we carry this natural power within us.”

– Anna Mae Pictou Aquash, Warrior of the Mi’kmaq Nation and the American Indian Movement, Statement to the Court of South Dakota, September 1975
