In Memory of Splitting-The-Sky, Dacajeweiah
Mohawk Warrior and Champion of the People Dies – March 13, 2013. A great loss to the people, to the nation, to the resistance, to the 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

Via Joshua Blakeney:
I am distressed to announce that my friend and comrade – Mohawk activist Splitting the Sky – has died. He participated in the Attica prison rebellion of 1971, John Lennon dedicated the famous song “Imagine” to him, he was in the American Indian Movement, he attempted a citizen’s arrest on George W. Bush, he was a dedicated 9/11 truther and much more. Some called him the “Che Guevara of North America”. He will be sorely missed. Condolences to his loved ones including Sandra Bruderer.
