INTERNATIONAL INDIGENOUS CAMPAIGN “WE ARE ALL GERONIMO”
The Elders, Children, Young People, Men, Women of the American Indian Nations and from the Indigenous Peoples around the World demand an immediate apology from All the Government of the United States of America for allowing the code name “Geronimo” to be related with the international terrorism. This US insensitivity to indigenous Americans continues, like the naming of a killer attack helicopter “Apache”. We demand justice for these historical debts, because of the invasions and theft of our territories, the confinement on reservations are part of the long list of insults and historical injuries that our Peoples have faced until now.

We manifest our higher consternation and we condemn this unacceptable and unjustified act of humiliation and degrading, that not contribute for this peace and dignity with our Native Nations. This Elder Geronimo case is a clear proof how the western society promotes oppression, genocide and ethnocide against our Indigenous Peoples since five centuries ago. Western people need to understand who were first on the land. We ask to stop this xenophobia, racism and discrimination must to finish NOW. It’s time to STOP the criminal way that our Relatives are treated, especially our Lakota Brother Leonard Peltier!!!

The association of Geronimo’s name with terrorism is yet another degrading slap in the face to American Indians and All Indigenous Nations from the government of the USA who waged an “unnecessary holocaust war” against American Indians in the forming of the America we have today. True American history shows Indians always wanted peace and respect of their sovereignty. They had every right to stand up for their true home land, way of life, freedom, civil liberties and right to self government.

Geronimo is one of our most Beloved Elders, Spiritual Leader, Medicine Man, Wisdom Keeper and a Defender of the Sacred Land of our Ancestors. He’s a true Hero and an American Indian civil rights leader icon in U.S. history. Who would dare allow the name Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson, Gandhi, Jesus, Mohamed, or Mandela, Dalai Lama and any other prominent name be associated to terrorism. This one point alone being made goes to the heart of demanding an apology from the Government of the United States of America.

We are not agree to gross oversight in allowing Geronimo’s name to be used as references that are offensive to our Elders, Ancestors and Indigenous Hero’s, with is another dark day in American history branded on the Indian community and totally unjustified. An apology from the Government and Western Society of the USA will not change history, but a public apology has to be part of that history for future generations and people around the world to fully understand the plight of American Indians and All Indigenous Peoples, their service and contribution for Mother Earth and World Peace.

It’s time to truly accept that We as American Indians Nations and all Indigenous Peoples, have the right to Self Determination as all the Peoples around the world as in the context of the international law. And to be respected, including our Sacred Heritage, Cultural Legacy, Our Ancestors like our Elder Geronimo.

Our Prayer is for the Understanding, Harmony and Healing of All Our Relations. With Peace and Respect.

Sincerely,
Native Elders from the American Indian Nations and Indigenous Peoples around the World…

And Sisters and Brothers from around the World
