“This training is a message to Obama and TransCanada that if they try to build KXL we’ll be here to meet them with our moccasins on the ground.”

Just part of the article, my emphasis:


Lakota know we love Unci Maka. All of Unci Maka. Our ancestors were free, to follow the Star Nation Path (the Good Red Road), to roam, to hunt, to be happy, to have sacred water. Then one day, FAT TAKER came thru camp, and stole the fat that many women prepared to get their lodges through the harsh prairie winters. From then on, it was the beginning of a war our ancestors waged in defense of their children, their babies, their, and our, sacred path of life.The gunfire may have ended at Wounded Knee in 1890 on that day when the 7th Calvary massacred unarmed women, children, old people, and men. But the war continues. America continues to violate international law, which is what a treaty is. Our ancestors made the 1851 and 1868 Ft Laramie Treaty with the United States to retain territory and make peace. America violated the Treaty Law when Fat Taker found gold, and they have been violating it ever since. America recently admitted their guilt in being a Fat Taker, through the unilateral (because no one bothered to talk with Traditional government about this lawsuit) approval of the Cobell Settlement, which awarded a few billion to the many many Red Nations peoples who America stole money from in the amount of $134 billion dollars worth of what American calls “natural resources”. These were taken off Unci Maka to make a profit for a few Fat Takers, leaving destruction and contamination behind that our Red Nations have to live and die with.
Our Treaty boundaries encompass a large part of the Great Plains. This is our ancestral territory that we retained through Treaty. We, to this day, love this land, and feel that we need to take care of it. At one point in time, America called, after illegal takings of other unceded territory, the remaining portions this land base “the Great Sioux Reservation”. Nonetheless, we are our own sovereign Nation!
Therein lies some of the confusion as to the understanding of the American people when we speak of “reservations”. The place where I live now is the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota. Officially, in the records of the American government’s Interior Department (where the national parks, animals, and plants are managed, is also where the Indians and our lands are “managed”) Pine Ridge Reservation is acknowledged as Prisoner of War Camp 344. In the past days, our people were not under the Interior Department, we were classified under the War Department. American Indians (sic) are the only people in this big land who have ANOTHER number, beyond the social security number of all Americans. We have our “Indian” number, our Prisoner of War number. Mine begins with 344. So America knows I dwell within Prisoner of War Camp 344. Think about that for awhile.
In our work to protect Treaty Territory, Human Rights, Treaty Rights, we make allies all over the world to educate about our situation in POW Camp #344, our Treaties, and our obligation and priviledge to protect lands and waters for our coming generations. We have many American people allies. Sometimes they make the human error of going by information they find about us, and utilize American records, and America refers to some of our land base as the “Great Sioux Reservation” which was a collective land base for our Nations to live on together, vs the individual ‘reservation’ landbases that remain after American carved out all our Treaty Territory that they wanted for the Fat. These individual ‘reservations’ are where the distinct Bands (I am of the Oglala Band) reside today.

Along with signing any petition to free Leonard Peltier from an unjust prison sentence I will also, respectfully, sign any petition to see that the Lakotah People regain their land that was illegally stolen from them. I need not go into the history; many people who contribute to this website know that history frightfully more than I. http://www.change.org/petitions/the-pre ... -the-sioux

Thanks for posting the petition lilac. Thought you might like to read this one:

MNN, Mar. 17, 2013. The UN has given the US the job of taking over Indigenous people and our resources worldwide. The 1973 illegal “War Powers Act” gives the US the “legal” right to create war with anyone they deem an enemy. Scientists were sent out by pharmaceuticals to take blood samples of every Indigenous group everywhere. Someone wanted our DNA. As Leonora Zalabata of the Aarahuaco People of Northern Columbia explains: “Our land, our culture, our subsoil, our ideology and our traditions have all been exploited… this time they are using us as raw material.”
US Liberators of DNA and Indigenous resources.

Liberators of Indigenous DNA and resources.



Our genetic blueprint was put into a blood bank in Washington DC. Indigenous and part-Indigenous can now be traced systematically anywhere in the world.DNA

As George Annas, Professor of Medical Ethics, at MIT, says, “We’re taking their DNA, which we now consider like gold. It’s even worse than standard colonialism and exploitation. And after we take that, we have no real interest in whether they live or die”.

Sixty-five years ago Hitler and the Nazis collected the same kind of information in Germany and surrounding countries to classify Jewish or part-Jewish persons. This was used to fill the concentration camps.

For the multinational corporations and their bosses to take over the world, they have to break the tie of the real owners to the land and resources. We have to be categorized out of existence. Our title, inherent jurisdiction and land claims are hindering “full ownership” of all these natural resources. Last year $1,735 billion was spent worldwide on war for our resources.

If we are eliminated once and for all, the real estate on Great Turtle Island will be free from Indian title that has been in the way for hundreds of years. The economic royalist banksters, can freely exploit our resources.

The California Supreme Court has ruled that a biotechnology company may patent a person’s genes, even when that person refuses to give their consent. As George Annas said, “It is virtually impossible to get the informed consent of Indigenous people for this. If they understand the project, they would refuse. If they don’t, they can’t give consent. It is illegal and total exploitation.”

migrationRay Apodaca of the National Congress of American Indians knows Indians don’t think this pure science research will reveal the history of human migration: “We know where we came from, we know who we are, we think we know where we are going. Why do we need to know anything else? I mean, is this for their benefit? It’s certainly isn’t for ours.”

The words of Leonara Zalabata will stick in your mind: “Science and technology solve problems, but they are also aggressive. Our way of looking after humanity and helping to save the world, of looking after the Earth, and making a brotherhood of mankind is done without technology. Our technology is in our head, heart and spirit.” As Mick Jagger said in Too much Blood ” I can feel it in the air feel it up above, feel the tension everywhere, there’s too much blood. Too much blood”
