Now, you’ll look deeper into what they don’t teach in schools, and what we Native Americans, will never forget.Thee Dakota 38 incident is just ONE example of Many more…
Folks don’t trust the ‘government’, just from what’s happened in the past 10 years.
We Natives have endured 2 Centuries of reason after reason to distrust the ‘government’ and with more theft of Treaty Lands by obama and proof that ‘Treaties’ signed by ‘government’ aren’t even useful for toilet paper, we’re angry enough to expel ‘government’ from our lands. Meaning The Americas, Canada and the USA.
We SEE what ‘government’ is trying to do to all people in the Americas. Whites and Natives both now have the same enemy.
We forgive Whites the past, but will NEVER forgive ‘government’, nor trust it again. Why do we forgive? We’re Natives, that’s our way, and we cannot together walk into the Future bound by hate from what happened in the past. SO many Whites express Guilt to us, apologize…feel righteous anger on our ancestor’s behalf…
All that, means vastly more to us than any False-Talk dribbled by ‘government’ while they droll over our Treaty Lands. Because they are words of Good Heart from our neighbours, unsolicited, sincere. A Good Peace now exists between Natives & Whites, we will protect that.
But ‘government’ is now Served Notice that we are not going to waste breath on talking anymore, or ink on paper false-talk. These lands, Canada and the USA are OUR Ancestral Lands, and we are going to reclaim what was ours by gun, by blade, by bare fists and teeth if need be.
We Have Had Enough of Wendigo (‘government’)running amok in our lands, and now the Wendigo Time will End..
“The trials of the Dakota were conducted unfairly in a variety of ways. The evidence was sparse, the tribunal was biased, the defendants were unrepresented in unfamiliar proceedings conducted in a foreign language, and authority for convening the tribunal was lacking. More fundamentally, neither the Military Commission nor the reviewing authorities recognized that they were dealing with the aftermath of a war fought with a sovereign nation and that the men who surrendered were entitled to treatment in accordance with that status.”
