Si Pih Ko is one of the last remaining true warriors in the world. She was called by Great Spirit to do what she did in front of the pope, just like she was called to carry that teepee pole on her shoulders. Si Pih Ko, like many others I've met in Canada, proves that Canada is not only full of piss and vinegar. Si Pih Ko still has fears here and there... she's human, and not a reptile... but lo, look at the courage it took for her to stand up to those plastic chiefs, or to speak up against plastic lodges. She sees through duplicity because she has eagle power, wolf power, thunderbird power, so much colourful power running through her blood, her eyes, her heart. The media may come and go on her exploits, but... Great Spirit always remains, and, this surely ensures that redemption will come in some shape or form (because that's how the Tao rolls).
Every transgression must be accounted for... that is natural law. No stone can remain unturned... that is natural justice. A prime minister who says sorry after decades of duplicity, and who still stands like a puppet for duplicity, or a plastic pope gifted a warbonnet by plastic chiefs... this does not count as natural anything. This is evening news poppycock. These department store displays are as fake as makeup: they might fool you into thinking that there is beauty and order there, but, underneath the paint, there's the truth of deception. Someone like Si Pih Ko has nothing to hide, while the system has everything to hide. That's because the system is inherently evil, it is fuelled by that energy.
Which reminds me of what Red Cloud once said on his deathbed, "The white man broke every promise, but there's one that he kept... he said he would take all of our land... and he did." Is it any surprise that the "white man" apologizes without contrition... it's like a guiltless child saying he'll never do it again, but he hasn't changed, perhaps because contrition is out of the question... and that would make him a psychopath... and through the theoretical lens of seeing the world as overtaken by the Wetiko virus (it is, just look around you)... it's not mere wild assumption that we are living in a sick world... it's a cold reality... one that calls for vision, planning, and an infinitely fierce endeavour to follow it through.
Si Pih Ko... you are my hero... and may the courage that flows through you flow through all the souls of this world who are here in this incarnation in order to stand up and fight the good fight.
