Remembering the Life of Splitting The Sky – Champion of the People 1952-2013

It is with a heavy heart that we share with our readers that Mohawk Native Dacajeweiah or Splitting The Sky, also known by the colonial name John Boncore Hill, has passed away at age 61 on March 13, 2013. Dac left us near his home in Adams Lake, BC as a result of an accidental fall that claimed his life due to head trauma. For updated information please visit http://splittingthesky.blogspot.ca/.

Splitting The Sky was born in Buffalo, New York on January 7, 1952. The oldest of thirteen children, he and his brothers and sisters were taken to residential-type schools and foster homes where they were severely abused by racist authorities. He was the only man convicted as a result of allegedly killing a prison guard at Attica State Prison in September 1971. With the help of former U.S. Attorney-General Ramsey Clark, STS was released by a pardon from Governor Hugh Carey in 1979.

We Are Change Victoria has proudly worked with Dac over many years and hosted him on several occasions for community events in Victoria. A group photo of us together has been posted on this site for years (see right column of our homepage) where WACV hosted Dac at Saint Ann’s Academy in 2008 where he delivered one of the most powerful lectures on 9/11 ever recorded.

This news is painful and saddening as his family and the world has been dealt a great loss. As a true hero and champion of the people fighting imperialism, government fraud, environmental destruction, global elitism, the evaporation of property rights and individual liberty.

As a gallant sovereign leader and values-based family man we give our most humble respects to our friend Splitting The Sky.

Some of his most notable contributions include:
– Husband to Saundra Bruderer ‘She-Keeps-the-Door’
– Father of John Hill Jr., Nicosa Hill, Angela Jack, Dylan Bruderer, Ora Star Henderson Boncore, Rainbow Rose Bruderer and Che Thunder Bruderer
Gustafsen Lake Standoff
Attica Rebellion
Attempted Arrest of George W. Bush
– Consistent man of integrity, strength, aptitude, and love

In his own words:

Here is a personal signed copy of his autobiography which will be cherished forever:
