Mohawk activist. 9/11 truth campaigner. War criminal protester. Attica State riot leader. Gustafsen Lake Standoff organizer. Splitting The Sky had a remarkable life. Tragically, that life was cut short last week after an unexplained incident near his home in Chase, British Columbia. Today on The Corbett Report we memorialize his life and reflect on the legacy he leaves behind.
From Veterans Today:
I first heard about Splitting-the-Sky in 2007 from the editor of the Mohawk Nation News, who had published an article referencing 9/11 truth. When I asked her to appear on my radio show, she said: “You need to talk to Splitting-the-Sky.”
Was she ever right. Splitting-the-Sky turned out to be one of the most charismatic and eloquent people I have ever met. As his name suggests, he seemed to be channeling a never-ending lightning bolt. (He explained to me last June, during dinner after the Vancouver 9/11 Hearings, that he practiced a kind of tantric kundalini yoga to bring all that electricity up his spine and into his brain.)
From Mohawk Nation News:
Mohawk Warrior and Champion of the People Dies – March 13, 2013. A great loss to the people, to the nation, to the resistance, anti-imperialist movement right across Great Turtle Island.
On March 13th, Dacajeweiah, Splitting-the-Sky, 61, left us forever when he passed away in his home in Adams Lake, British Columbia. Dac’s colonial name was John Boncore Hill, from Six Nations. “From Attica to Gustafsen Lake,” and thereafter, he was a warrior, a comrade, a brother, a father, a grandfather, a friend.
We deeply mourn his loss.
The family will release a biographical statement and details of memorial arrangements in due course. With deepest love to his wife, She-Keeps-the-Door, and children. We stand with Dac’s many many co-fighters and friends. He loved the People. The AIM song is dedicated to the continuance of the resistance after a warrior has fallen A.I.M. song
