"Our nation has never been conquered. The battle has been, for a long time now, in our way of thinking, beliefs. It's more hidden and will take greater strategic planning than before.
Mita Kola
"...we must assess how colonization has affected each one of us and our communities. Colonization has had varied and incomplete results. Native people are now being subjected to the raw forces of cultural transformation that often play themselves out through violent interpersonal conflicts. The ultimate cost of these conflicts is a loss of sovereignty, self governing capacity, and quite possibly our existence as distinct peoples. If we wish to remain sovereign nations and grow stronger in our ability to self-determine our future, we must find ways to channel the conflict within us into a productive force in our lives and for our nations."
