Warrior Publications is published in occupied Coast Salish territory (Vancouver, Canada). Its purpose is to promote warrior culture, fighting spirit, and resistance movements.
In addition, this website seeks to function as an historical archive of Indigenous anti-colonial struggles and resistance, and to provide analysis of these struggles.
Warrior Publications has existed since the Spring of 2006, when the first issue of Warrior magazine was published. In total, 3 issues were produced, along with various other documents. In 2007, the first Warrior Publications website was established. The current wordpress site was established in the Spring of 2011.
Content and Comments
Most of the content on this website consists of re-posts of corporate media news reports, which should always be read with caution. Despite often being biased or outright sources of disinformation, corporate media still provides timely reports and can, along with other sources, be used to formulate intelligence (including a chronological history of events or struggles, etc.). Whenever possible, alternative/radical media are also used to provide reports. There are also a small number of original articles, some of which are filed under the Documents category.
Comments are encouraged to promote discussion and debate. Those that are offensive, such as racist rants against Native people, will not pass screening and will be put in the trash.
Readers are reminded to use basic security precautions and to not post incriminating coments about themselves or others which police/intelligence agencies can use.

Good to see your website.
When reposting articles from Censored News or Narcosphere, please use only the first portion, about 100 words, then follow with a link back to the original website where the article is published. If you repost photos, please obtain permission from the photographers first, as many do not allow for reposting. Also, before reposting content please ask permission, as many authors do not allow for reposting their work. Thanks so much, Brenda Norrell, publisher, Censored News email@example.com
This is your plan on expanding coverage of ‘censored news’?
Seriously, fuck this idea of copyrighting news and information. More ways for white people to claim entitlement and property, and to control what Indigenous people are and aren’t allowed to learn and gain knowledge about; sounds like another form of colonization.

We believe in giving credit where due. The Truth is what sets us free so how and why should anyone own it??
The white man’s copyright laws protect native art, or at least attempt to. If copyright did not exist, then any tom dick or harry could appropriate native designs for profit, which probably happens anyway… We live in an age in which consumers are becoming more powerful, which is good if you are a consumer. On the other hand, the rights of artists, including native artists, are being chipped away at. Native artists need to stand up for their artistic and moral rights to their art and push for tougher copyright laws, not weaker.
Its time for a revolution!
I conquer. Didn’t George Washington state every generations needs a revolution. What outlet do we have? Debt and repression of consumerism
Concur. Sorry dyslexic
I am the editor of a green/sustainability magazine in BC’s central interior and would like permission to reprint the no Enbridge illustration with the wolves (or bears?) for our Sept issue. Please contact me asap – we are going to print soon.
Apparently the rcmp, or red scourge, hates all of us. I write about the world wide destruction of our world by the IOC and I get a visit from our national police disgrace.
So much for freedom of speech!

Thank you for sharing the important messages in this blog. I came across Colonization: A War for Territory, and would like to discuss gaining permission to share some of the contents. I am writing an ‘anti-manual’ about helping under-housed folks. Please let me know what yo think about my request.
Hello Anna, if your manual is truly to assist under-housed people then you are welcome to use material from Colonization: A war for territory.
My name is Michele. I am trying to find my real dad, who is a prominent member of six nations. I believe his name is Harnold Johnson. He may be the owner of a golf course. He maybe from the Ondinega tribe. He once tried to contact me when I lived in Cobourg on. Canada, but I was 18 at the time and too scared to meet him. I am sorry that this is not the proper forum for this plea, but I have run into dead ends every time I search in the conventional manner. I can be reache at 613 968 5180 or 613 902 0597. Thank you.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Mi’kmaq Warrior Society
September 13. 2013
THE MI’KMAQ WARRIOR SOCIETY IS OUTRAGED BY THE DISPLAYS OF SYSTEMATIC RACISIM BY THE RCMP IN NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA.
MI’KMAKI TERRITORY – The Mi’kmaq Warrior Society, who are the Mi`kmaq Nation`s Homeland Security, are outraged by the displays of systematic racism shown by the RCMP in New Brunswick, Canada. It is because of displays of systemic racism and outright desecration of Indigenous Mi`kmaq Spirituality by the RCMP during the past months that help from the Mi`kmaq Warrior Society was sought.
On the 28th of July, on Salmon River Road/Air Port Road, the RCMP declared War against the Mi`kmaq Warrior Society after Captain Ian Dupree from the Canadian Military directed the RCMP on the front lines to respect the Treaty Rights of the Mi’kmaq People and to allow the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society access to their Traditional Hunting and Fishing Territory.
Since the July 28 incident, members from the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society have faced continual harassment from the RCMP, and in some instances have been severely monitored and followed. The Mi’kmaq Warrior Society has sought to create peace with the RCMP but all requests for negotiations for peaceful resolution have been declined on several occasions.
On September 11, 2013, Warrior Society members were followed around the City of Moncton, New Brunswick and swarmed by undercover RCMP just moments after members exited their vehicles outside the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Members from the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society were attempting to discuss the current situation regarding shale gas fracking with the Indian Act Elected Representatives who were congregating at a meeting at the Crowne Plaza. James Pictou and Annie Clair were then charged. Annie Clair refused to sign conditions; was then processed at Codiac RCMP Detachment, and appeared before a judge shortly after. During a court recess, Suzanne Patles was then arrested with 19 RCMP officers present in the hallway of the Moncton court house on Assumption Blvd. Members of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society attempted to negotiate peace with the RCMP, or set up a date for a meeting. All requests were denied.
On September 13, 2013, the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society met with the Canadian Military from 1pm to approximately 4pm. A complaint was filed against the RCMP for the violation of Mi’kmaq Treaty Rights in these actions, and for occurrences commencing June 4th, 2013 and continuing to the present day. Assistance was requested from The Mi’kmaq Warrior Society to the Canadian Military to assist in the protection of the people against enemies both foreign and domestic. This seeking of assistance in order to protect the people is a Treaty Right; and therefore any refusal to fulfill this request for assistance is a violation of the Pre-Confederation Peace and Friendship Treaties.
The Warrior Society will be holding a press conference in the community of Colette, at the old Ranger’s Building on September 16th, at 3pm. For Further Information please contact James Pictou @ 902 317 6040.
Oil tanker use double hull to haul oil why can’t we use double concentric pipes to pipe crude, could be a lot safer.
I’m a geography student in Université de Montréal and I’m now working on a project on the autonomy in the Oaxaca states in Mexico. The autonomys there is mostly native autonomy.
I would like if it is possible if you could send me a definition of political autonomy for a warrior point of view. That will help me a lot to compare different kind a definition that concept could mean and how it is applicated in that state of Mexico.
You could join me by that e-mail adress email@example.com or answer on that blog.
Thank a lot and I wish you a nice day end!
I am a socio-pedagogical empowerment activist. Not a warrior. Yet, the word warrior itself still needs much definition (finding).
“Full and unrestricted community sovereignty over land, air, waters and all decision-making that affects the former three Earth elements and its living beings on and within it. No service obligations whatsoever towards any kind of state (authorities).”
That’s my spontaneous definition for (native) autonomy.
Thank you for keeping us knowledgeable about this tragic situation. How can I follow you in other social media networks?
Suggest asking people passing through protest areas, to sign a petition regarding the missing women. There might be some who will be annoyed but you might get a great # of signatures to present to government. Good luck, An investigation is due when anyone’s murder goes unsolved and suspicious when so many are Native’s and no followup. Nancy Moisan, Tweed
I would like to share this track made by the anti-fracking Protectors at Barton Moss U.K. We have included some footage of the miq-kmaq blockade in our video in solidarity. Please share. http://youtu.be/oMz9gzdDwCc
I am non native, I will gladly help defend your legal rights, responsibility demands it. Long live your Chief.
ALL THIS IS GOING TO END BADLY BECAUSE THE STUPID IGNORANT MAYOR OF GATINEAU IS GOING TO DO WHAT THE STUPID IGNORANT MAYOR OF OKA DID IN 1990…SEND IN THE SURETE DU QUEBEC TO STRONG ARM, INTIMIDATE, BEAT, AND ARREST ALL PERSONS INVOLVED, NO MATTER THAT THE PROTEST IS AN ARCHEOLOGICAL LEGITIMATE ACTION, AND PEOPLE WILL BE KILLED BECAUSE THE SQ ARE NOTHING MORE THAN INDIAN KILLERS AND THINK THEY CONTROL NOT ONLY ALL OF QUEBEC AND ALL SOVEREIGN FIRST NATIONS TERRITORIES BUT IN THEIR EGOTISTICAL MINDS THE ENTIRE WORLD IF THEY COULD!!! THEY THREATENED MY SISTER’S LIFE AT CACOUNA IN 1997…NEED I SAY MORE??? AND WHEN THIS ALL GOES TO COURT, THE PROVINCE WILL USE THE MOST RACIST SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE TO OVERSEE THE PROCEEDINGS, SOMEONE LIKE FRANK BARAKETT, WHO DETROYED MY MOTHER’S GRAVE…PASS THIS ON TO ALL FIRST NATIONS IN CANADA AND THE U.S. NOW!!!
And the british are Saints I suppose.
My view is for the French to patriate with France and stay only where bands welcome them noting that Mohawks don’t own the entire lands of the Americas any more than their pal Queen in England.
Untill then the French will protect their own with any and every means necessary.
It’s time for a revolution!
with what is going on up at Burnaby Mountain and Kinder Morgan ripping up the land, I was thinking that your shirts would be a great fund raiser for the legal fees of those being put through the courts as well as the legal bill that kinder morgan has slapped the city with for saying no to the drilling. Im going to leave this thought with you. Your t-shirt pics are circulating on the facebook page ‘stop Kinder Morgan on Burnaby Mountain’. Might be a great business promoter as well as a great way to get word around!
Dear Hearts, your work will never be done, and you inspire the rest of us to keep on going. Long may the Truth be told and your banner fly!
any chance of putting up that 4 page pdf for warrior culture.. its yr 4 page comic about resistance, low intensity conflict, the need to make alliances etc. cheers
I’m fighting Enbridge 61 / 66 Pipleline in Wisconsin and plan to publish lots of GREENTV.COM how do I get plugged into to your news feeds to help share your progress?
Dear Ladies and Gentleman,
we are working on a documentary about living and working in Port Hedland, West Australia and in our introduction of the film we also talk a bit about the history of Port Hedland and Australia in general.
Therefore we would like to use the picture where you can see 7 chained Aborigines.
Please let us know if this would be possible!
Media: TV and online
The TV doc is airing on german television and also online.
We would want to use the picture only for the documentary.
Would be great if you could come back to us as soon as possible as we will air the documentary soon.
Go ahead and use it, I found it on the internet, lol…
Hello Zig Zag!
I am writing an article for a malaysian news site http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/
and or some others as well – whoever will publish
In connection with Malaysian National Corporation Petronas incursion into the North West.
I sent the article by email for your perusal but may have used the wrong email.
I want to use a crop of your new chief image from your site and wonder if you could give me permission.
I must tell you I presented and your Anti-Capitalist Resistance Comic Book some years ago
to a dear friend of mine who was recovering from weeks in a coma after catching H1N1 in Malaysia and I think it made his day!
Hello Koboi, sorry I didn’t see an email from you, yes you can use the graphic for your work…
Thanks so much Zig Zag – Than image is so sharp it cuts in all directions!!
PS Do you know the people occupying Lelu Island
I would like to visit to support and take some pictures for my work but cant make contact.
Try their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Stop-Pacific-NorthWest-LNGPetronas-on-Lelu-Island-949045868451061/timeline/
My article has not been published by the above mentioned outlet in Malaysian Cyberspace as I had hoped. I need to bother you for a more general permission so I can send it around to others. Also how can I send you the article so you can consider publishing it yourself or redirecting me to some other 1st Nations outlets to which it might be relevant. My goal is to connect two communities of discourse and concern – In Malaysia and in BC.
PS. My own attitude would be to just use it!! Ha Ha fuck copyright … till it fucks you!! but I have to satisfy the editors.
Please offer Leonard Peltier’s work in book form so that his art can be widely appreciated.
Aneen Relatives, from Dacotah/Anishinabe Land – I’m always happy to see energy and determination from Our People and our ever important Supporters. I do not write much on these forums…in fact, I often “look” from locations not mine.
Emotional comments and/or responses on ANY site, although well meaning, and understandable, may result in very poor results…even farther into the future than you may consider. Upon potential adversaries documenting these comments, it opens the door for you, your relatives, and friends to be raided, all of your records (car titles, etc.) to be “taken” as evidence, no matter how idiotic the confiscation may be. This tactic is called “DISRUPTION”. even if they are proven wrong, it will highly disrupt your life, thus removing your voice from identifying injustice. In addition, it will take large sums of money just to get a person out of jail.
Documentation with technology, the same type used against us, can now be used to expose what has been happening in the streets and on Reservations. Store personal information in clouds or a “safe” place, but not in your living/work spaces. You hopefully will at least be able to register your car.
A fighter is smart not to telegraph his next move, or intentions. An innocent person could end up in jail with no hearings and no bail for a long time. A Warrior does not need to be a target before even leaving home.
It is this time of year we have an opportunity, to lead by example, explain to our children why these christian holidays are in place and why people who call themselves Native, yet erode a chance for the children to learn about the Truth and The Big Lie, by reinforcing the original terrorists methods of holocaust and assimilation.
Megwitch for considering my words.
I encourage you to follow Face Book Page Aboriginal People Matter, as the excitement of a petition to have Chief Boucher removed from power unfolds in Fort Mckay
It would be good if there was a section with just your pamphlets, for quick access.
How can subcribe to yr paper
I like your blog very local
Siyo Sgi Wado A’ho Thank you all warriors and peacemakers and peacekeepers earth protectors and water protectors from Gvduwa Cherokee Nation of Indians Cherokee Country Treaty of 1791
Where does one inquire or blow the whistle on corrupt council members embezzling funds and taking bribes from contractors doing government funded work?
We the people would like to see third party government inquiries and helpnrunning our funds until our people are cleaned up.
You could gather evidence, write up a press release and send it to local media, hold a rally, organize a community meeting, etc.
Hello! I am working on a documentary film and I need to find historic photo images that demonstrate the abuse involved in the Native American attempt to assimilate native people. On this website is a striking photo of native children sitting at school desks. Is that photo in the public domain? How might I get a high resolution copy of that photo and do you have any others that clearly illustrate the violence of assimilation of native peoples?
Reconciliation is well under way for the reserve school system. Why do you insist on gratifying your film prowess with it as a topic? Easy sell?
Hello! I am wondering if I may use one of your photos off your site as a part of my installation. I would be happy to show you the piece, along with my art statement.
This site is packed with highly valuable educational material and information. I found this place inadvertently just a few hours ago, but from what I’ve read so far, there is genuine quality and real value here, in astonishing breadth and depth; I’m almost stunned by how far-reaching it’s impact is.
I’m particularly encouraged and edified by having learned where this site is based, and who it’s webmaster is. I would be very pleased to meet you in person; I mention this only in passing, as an encouragement, and to convey my appreciation for your ongoing efforts here.
For obvious security reasons, it’s not anything I consider to be realistically possible.
I wish you all the best.
Are the t-shirts still available for sale? Thank you.
Yes they are…
can you please direct me to services for an indigenous based family counseling servecs in the Winnipeg area
