On Monday, October 8, 2012, from 6pm to 8pm, at St. Mary’s Church in Harlem, 521 W. 126th Street(between Old Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue), Harlem, New York City, Scientific Soul Sessions will present an anti-Columbus Day Celebration extolling native North America as the “original communism and matriarchy” in which human society enjoyed egalitarian social relations, respect and balance with Mother Earth, so much so that virtually no “carbon footprint” was left after the genocide, ecocide and matricide wrought by the European Invasion and settler-expansionist colonialism.
“I did not see anything [New York 1886] to help my people. I could see that the Wasichus [white man] did not care for each other the way our people did before the nation’s hoop was broken. They would take everything from each other if they could, and so there were some who had more of everything than they could use, while crowds of people had nothing at all and maybe were starving. This could not be better than the old ways of my people.”
