THE NATIVE PEOPLE OF AMERICA

Or how the European invaders totally destroyed in 5 centuries the most pristine continent on planet Earth.

We are the only species that is destroying the Source of Life, meaning Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land, using chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage, as Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war.
       In the Beginning I was here.
Long before the White man and his diseases, his religions and his war-like ways.
      I lived upon the land for countless moons, in harmony with the Great Spirit, honoring all life around me.
In this land called Kan-tu-kee, the great meadow, the dark and bloody ground, I was known as Shawnee.
        I was also known by other names … Cherokee, Chickasaw, Iroquois, Lanapota, Creek…
I am Native American… the indigenous tribes of this land.

EARLY ORIGINS

Dakote is the second largest of 4 planets that revolve around their sun Taygeta, one of the seven sister stars in the Pleiades star system located in the Taurus constellation. There are 3 other planets in this star system: Vela, Pyra and Erra.
The migration of the Dakote people to Planet Earth is the origin and foundation of the Dakota, Lakota, Nakota and other people of Grandmother Turtle Island (American continent).
The symbol of the planet Dakote is the medicine wheel.
200 men, women and children, with the best healers, engineers, exobiologists, xenobiologists, linguists and cultural experts were invited by the Lemurians on planet earth to assist them to live and work in harmony with nature.
  This was about 100,000 years ago.
They taught the Lemurians community layouts, to build earth friendly dome structures, pyramid gold infused buildings and to live in harmony with nature.
The Lemurians wanted advancement in a quicker pace while the Dakote preferred to advance in much slower pace.
They lived for many thousands of years in total harmony and the population grew to 1 billion people. 

However when the Lemurian continent shifted, half the population died and the other half left the mostly submerged Lemuria. New continents had risen and the people migrated to what is today China and the West coast of Grandmother Turtle Island (America). this happened 50 000 years ago.
The Dakote people never intermarried with the Lemurians, but did intermarry with the people living on Turtle Island, who were close to nature and lived in harmony with all life.

About 2500 years ago the Dakote people started to spread across the land and split into different tribes. 1500 years ago these people began to be known as Dakota, Lakota, Nakota and others.
The population grew to approximately 40 million on the Northern continent and 60 million on the Southern continent (no one ever counted them really, there might have been many more).

Over a period of 300 years 95% of this population was killed by introduced diseases, mass murder, torture, starvation, slavery and induced wars.
If anyone likes to remember a holocaust, this was the real one.


SOME OF THE MAIN GROUPS

The Lakota (also Teton, Tetonwan, Teton Sioux) are part of a confederation of seven related Sioux tribes (the Oceti Sakowin or seven council fires) and speak Lakota, one of the three major dialects of the Sioux language. 
The name Sioux was created by the French Canadians, who abbreviated the Algonquin compound Nadouéssioux (from nadowe ("Iroquois") plus siu ("snake"/the massasauga rattler), by which a neighboring Ojibwa tribe, or the Ottawa, referred to the Dakota to the west and south.
The Lakota are the western-most of the three Sioux groups, occupying lands in both North and South Dakota. The seven branches or "sub-tribes" of the Lakota are Sicangu, Oglala, Itazipco, Hunkpapa, Miniconjou, Sihasapa, and Ooinunpa. 
Notable persons include Tatanka Iyotake (Sitting Bull) from the Hunkpapa band and Tasunka Witko (Crazy Horse), Manpiya Luta (Red Cloud), Hehaka Sapa (Black Elk) and Billy Mills from the Oglala band as well as Touch the Clouds.


In North America the territory of the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota Nation covers some 200,000 km2 in the present day state of South Dakota and neighboring states.
The Lakota, Nakota and Dakota Nation (also known as the Great Sioux Nation) can be divided into three major linguistic and geographic groups: Lakota (Teton, West Dakota), Nakota (Yankton, Central Dakota) and Dakota (Santee, Eastern Dakota). They reside near the Sacred Black Hills of South Dakota.

Apache is the collective name for several culturally related tribes who speak a Southern Athabaskan language. The modern term excludes the related Navajo people. The origin of the name Apache may derive from the Yavapai word epache, meaning "people". The origin has also been claimed to be the Zuni word apachu, meaning "enemy" (but this may have been the Zuni name for the Navajo people) or an unspecified Quechan word meaning "fighting-men".
Early Apache inhabitants of the southwestern United States were a nomadic people; some groups roamed as far south as Mexico. They were primarily hunters of buffalo but they also practiced limited farming. For centuries they were fierce warriors, adept in desert survival, who carried out raids on those who encroached on their territory.
The primitive Apache was a true nomad, a wandering child of Nature, whose birthright was a craving for the warpath with courage and endurance probably exceeded by no other people and with cunning beyond reckoning. Although his character is a strong mixture of courage and ferocity, the Apache is gentle and affectionate toward those with his own flesh and blood, particularly his children.
The Apache people (including the Navajo) came from the Far North to settle the Plains and Southwest around A.D. 850. They settled in three desert regions, the Great Basin, the Sonoran, and the Chihuachuan.

They were always known as 'wild" Indians, and indeed their early warfare with all neighboring tribes as well as their recent persistent hostility toward our Government, which precipitated a "war of extermination," bear out the appropriateness of the designation.
The most famous apaches were Geronimo and Cochise.

The Cheyenne are a Native American nation of the Great Plains, closely allied with the Arapaho and loosely allied with the Lakota (Sioux). They are one of the most famous and prominent Plains tribes.
The Cheyenne nation is composed of two united tribes, the Sotaae'o and the Tsitsistas, which translates to "Like Hearted People".
The Cheyenne nation comprised 10 bands, spread all over the Great Plains, from southern Colorado to the Black Hills in South Dakota.
In the early 1800s the tribe split into two factions: the southern band staying near the Platte Rivers and the northern band living near the Black Hills near the Lakota tribes.
The Cheyenne of Montana and Oklahoma both speak the Cheyenne language, with only a handful of vocabulary items different between the two locations. The Cheyenne language is a tonal language and is part of the larger Algonquian language group.
In 1851, the first Cheyenne 'territory' was established in northern Colorado. The Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851 granted this territory.

Blackfoot people were nomadic, following the buffalo herds. Survival required their being in the proper place at the proper time. For almost half the year in the long northern winter, the Blackfoot people lived in their winter camps along a wooded river valley perhaps a day's march apart, not moving camp unless food for the people and horses or firewood became depleted. Where there was adequate wood and game resources, some bands might camp together. During this part of the year, buffalo wintered in wooded areas where they were partially sheltered from storms and snow, which hampered their movements, making them easier prey.

The Blackfoot confederacy consists of the North Peigan (Aapatohsipiikanii), the South Peigan (Aamsskaapipiikanii), the Blood (Kainah), and the Siksika tribe ("Blackfoot") or more correctly Siksikawa ("Blackfoot people"). Three of the four are located in Alberta, Canada while one, the South Peigan, is located in Montana. All together they traditionally called themselves the Niitsitapii (the "Real People"). These groups shared a common language and culture, had treaties of mutual defense, and freely intermarried.

Cherokee comes from the Creek word "Chelokee" which means "people of a different speech." Although the Cherokee language is Iroquoian it differs significantly from the other Iroquoian languages. The Cherokee originally called themselves the Aniyunwiya - the "principal people" or the Keetoowah - "people of Kituhwa. Many prefer being called Tsalagi from their own name for the Cherokee Nation.
The Cherokee were a settled agricultural people. They relied heavily on what was called the "three sisters," corn, beans and squash. Their diet was supplemented through the gathering of wild plants and hunting.

The Comanches emerged as a distinct group shortly before 1700, when they broke off from the Shoshone people living along the upper Platte River in Wyoming. This coincided with their acquisition of the horse, which allowed them greater mobility in their search for better hunting grounds.
Their original migration took them to central plains, from where they moved southward into a sweep of territory extending from the Arkansas River to central Texas. During that time, their population increased dramatically due to the abundance of buffalo, an influx of Shoshone migrants, and the adoption of significant numbers of women and children taken captive from rival groups.
Nevertheless, the Comanches never formed a single cohesive tribal unit but were divided into almost a dozen autonomous groups. These groups shared the same language and culture but may have fought among themselves just as often as they cooperated.
The horse was a key element in the emergence of a distinctive Comanche culture, and there have been suggestions that it was the search for additional sources of horses among the Mexican settlers to the south (rather than the search for new herds of buffalo) that first led the Comanches to break off from the Shoshone.
The Comanches may have been the first group of Plains natives to fully incorporate the horse into their culture, and to have introduced the animal to the other Plains peoples. By the mid-nineteenth century, they were supplying horses to French and American traders and settlers, and later to migrants passing through their territory on their way to the Californian Gold Rush.

The name Hopi is the shortened form of the title to what they called themselves, "Hopituh Sinom", "the people of Hopi". Hopi is a concept deeply rooted in the culture's religion, spirituality, and its view of morality and ethics. To be Hopi is to strive toward this concept, but one never achieves in this life. This concept is one where you are in a state of total reverance and respect for all things, to be at peace with these things, and to live in accordance with the teachings of 'maasaw'.
Hopis live in northeast Arizona at the southern end of the Black Mesa. A mesa is the name given to a small isolated flat-topped hill with three steep sides called the 1st< Mesa, 2nd Mesa, and the 3rd Mesa.  On the mesa tops are the Hopi villages called pueblos. The pueblo of Oraibi on the 3rd Mesa started in 1050, and is the oldest in North America that was lived in continuously.

Shawnee comes from the Algonquin word "shawun," meaning "southerner." Shawnee usually call themselves the Shawano or Shawanoe or Shawanese.

FIRST CONTACT

The american natives got the name indians from the ignorant Christobal Columbus, who thought he had found another sea route to India, thus indians. However he never set foot on the american continent.

The name America comes from a later discoverer Amerigo Vespucci. While on this voyage, Vespucci wrote two letters to a friend in Europe. He described his travels and was the first to identify the New World of North and South America as separate from Asia. (Until he died, Columbus thought he had reached Asia.)


Amerigo Vespucci also described the culture of the indigenous people, and focused on their diet, religion, and what made these letters very popular - their sexual, marriage, and childbirth practices. The letters were published in many languages and were distributed across Europe.
Amerigo Vespucci was named Pilot Major of Spain in 1508. Vespucci was proud of this accomplishments, "I was more skillful than all the shipmates of the whole world." Vespucci's third voyage to the New World was his last for he contracted malaria and died in Spain in 1512 at the age of 58.
The German clergyman-scholar Martin Waldseemuller liked to make up names. Waldseemuller was working on a contemporary world map, based on the Greek geography of Ptolemy, and he had read of Vespucci's travels and knew that the New World was indeed two continents.
In honor of Vespucci's discovery of the new forth portion of the world, Waldseemuller printed a wood block map (called "Carta Mariana") with the name "America" spread across the southern continent of the New World. Waldseemuller printed and sold a thousand copies of the map across Europe.
Within a few years, Waldseemuller changed his mind about the name for the New World but it was too late. The name America had stuck.
The power of the printed word was too powerful to take back. Gerardus Mercator's world map of 1538 was the first to include North America and South America. Thus, continents named after an Italian navigator would live on forever.

Columbus in 1492 described the Arawaks, the Native people in the West Indies, as timid, artless, free, and generous. He rewarded them with death and slavery. For his second voyage to the Americas:
"Columbus took the title 'Admiral of the Ocean Sea' and proceeded to unleash a reign of terror unlike anything seen before or since. When he was finished, eight million Arawaks, virtually the entire native population of Hispaniola had been exterminated by torture, murder, forced labor, starvation, disease and despair."
"By conservative estimates, the population of North America prior to European contact was greater than 40 million. Four centuries later, the count was reduced by 95% to 237 thousand.

In 1493, when Columbus returned to the Hispaniola, he quickly implemented policies of slavery and mass extermination of the Taino population of the Caribbean. Within three years, five million were dead. Las Casas, the primary historian of the Columbian era, writes of many accounts of the horrors that the Spanish colonists inflicted upon the indigenous population: hanging them en mass, hacking their children into pieces to be used as dog feed, and other horrid cruelties.
"One day, in front of Las Casas, the Spanish dismembered, beheaded or raped 3000 people. 'Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight,' he says, 'as no age can parallel....' The Spanish cut off the legs of children who ran from them. They poured people full of boiling soap. They made bets as to who, with one sweep of his sword, could cut a person in half. They loosed dogs that 'devoured an Indian like a hog, at first sight, in less than a moment.' They used nursing infants for dog food."
Thus the USA holds Columbus in high esteem and even have a Columbus day!

Columbus certainly was not the first to discover this side of the world. Long before him the Norske Vikings had sailed these waters. Eric the Red was the first to venture into the distant waters when - having been banished from the island for a series murders - he sailed west from Iceland in 985 or 986 to an island he dubbed "Greenland". His son, Leif Ericsson, continued his father's explorations and in the year 1000 or 1001 sailed southwest from Greenland to the islands off the coast of northern Canada and finally to the shores of Newfoundland. The Norseman found the land so inviting that they stayed through the winter before returning to Greenland.

There have been lately roman sculptures and artefacts found on the american continent, indicating that even the Romains have travelled that far.

Some japanese had arrived in the region that is now Equador some 6500 years ago. There are some native tribes in the SW of North America who speak a language that is very similar to japanese.

Crushed leg bones, battered skulls and other mutilated human remains are likely all that's left of a Native American population destroyed by genocide that took place circa 800 A.D., suggests a study.
The paper, accepted for publication in the Journal of Anthropological Archaeology, describes the single largest deposit to date of mutilated and processed human remains in the American Southwest.
The entire assemblage comprises 14,882 human skeletal fragments, as well as the mutilated remains of dogs and other animals killed at the massacre site -- Sacred Ridge, southwest of Durango, Colo.

MODERN TIMES EXTERMINATION

The Removal Act of 1830 set into motion a series of events which led to the "Trail of Tears" in 1838, a forced march of the Cherokees, resulting in the destruction of most of the Cherokee population. The concentration of American Indians in small geographic areas, and the scattering of them from their homelands, caused increased death, primarily because of associated military actions, disease, starvation, extremely harsh conditions during the moves, and the resulting destruction of their ways of life.

During American expansion into the western frontier, one primary effort to destroy the Indian way of life was the attempts of the U.S. government to make farmers and cattle ranchers of the Indians. In addition, one of the most substantial methods was the premeditated destructions of flora and fauna which the American Indians used for food and a variety of purposes.
We now also know that the Indians were intentionally exposed to smallpox by Europeans.
The discovery of gold in California, early in 1848, prompted American migration and expansion into the west.
The greed of Americans for money and land was rejuvenated with the Homestead Act of 1862. In California and Texas there was blatant genocide of Indians by non-Indians during certain historic periods. In California, the decrease from about a quarter of a million to less than 20,000 is primarily due to the cruelties and wholesale massacres perpetrated by the miners and early settlers.

Indian 'education' began with forts erected by Jesuits, in which indigenous youths were incarcerated, indoctrinated with non-indigenous Christian values, and forced into manual labor. These children were forcibly removed from their parents by soldiers and many times never saw their families until later in their adulthood. This was after their value systems and knowledge had been supplanted with colonial thinking.
One of the foundations of the U.S. imperialist strategy was to replace traditional leadership of the various indigenous nations with indoctrinated "graduates" of white "schools," in order to expedite compliance with U.S. goals and expansion.
Probably one of the most ruinous acts to the Indians was the disappearance of the buffalo. For the Indians who lived on the Plains, life depended on the buffalo.
At the beginning of the nineteenth century, there were an estimated forty million buffalo, but between 1830 and 1888 there was a rapid, systematic extermination culminating in the sudden slaughter of the only two remaining Plain herds.
By around 1895, the formerly vast buffalo populations were practically extinct. The slaughter occurred because of the economic value of buffalo hides to Americans and because the animals were in the way of the rapidly westward expanding population. The end result was wide scale starvation and the social and cultural disintegration of many Plains tribes.

The British occupied areas from Virginia northward.
Hans Koning wrote: "From the beginning, the Spaniards saw the native Americans as natural slaves, beasts of burden, part of the loot. When working them to death was more economical than treating them somewhat humanely, they worked them to death. The English, on the other hand, had no use for the native peoples. They saw them as devil worshippers, savages who were beyond salvation by the church, and exterminating them increasingly became accepted policy."

David E. Stannard wrote: "Hundreds of Indians were killed in skirmish after skirmish. Other hundreds were killed in successful plots of mass poisoning. They were hunted down by dogs, 'blood-Hounds to draw after them, and Mastives [mastiffs] to seize them.' Their canoes and fishing weirs were smashed, their villages and agricultural fields burned to the ground. Indian peace offers were accepted by the English only until their prisoners were returned; then, having lulled the natives into false security, the colonists returned to the attack. It was the colonists' expressed desire that the Indians be exterminated, rooted 'out from being longer a people upon the face of the earth.' In a single raid the settlers destroyed corn sufficient to feed four thousand people for a year. Starvation and the massacre of non-combatants was becoming the preferred British approach to dealing with the natives."

 On August 7, 1814, White Pope Pius VII removed the PERPETUAL BAN on the Jesuits....The Jesuits were given the exclusive franchise of all the Indians in the United States. Their agent in the U.S. was a fanatical Belgium priest named Pierre Jean De Smet who was determined to stop the western protestant expansion of the U.S. at any cost.
With regard to the Indians, the results that had been obtained were satisfactory and consoling. The appeal of the American Bishops, to confide the Indian Missions to the Jesuits, had been granted by Rome, and the Fathers of the Missouri Province would now be the first to prove themselves worthy of the confidence of the heads of the Church.
When the Pilgrims arrived in Massachusetts, the Indians acknowledged that their magic was powerless against their God. Now the western Indian medicine men declared that Old World magic was far superior to anything they possessed.

Black Robe jesuit Peter De Smet made "Christians" of the Indians by sprinkling them with water. Then he told them, that as members of the church militant, it was their duty to slay the Protestant missionaries!! He supplied the indians with modern weapons.

Apart from general Jackson, general George Armstrong Custer was the best soldier the U.S. ever produced. He was an army of one and practically won the Jesuit instigated Civil War single-handed.
 General Custer was NOT on the Great Plains to fight Indians. He was there to keep the PEACE. The inevitable tide of settlers continued to roll westward led by the telegraph and the railroad.
The Jesuits continued to arm the Indians and fan the flames of resentment toward the pioneers.
It was stated at one time that Sitting Bull, while hating the white Americans and disdaining to speak their language; was yet very fond of the French Canadians, that he spoke French, and that he had been converted to Christianity by a French Jesuit, named Father De Smet. How true this may be is uncertain, but probably there is some foundation for it. The French Jesuits have always been noted for their wonderful success in winning the affections of the Indians, as well as for the transitory nature of their conversions, and it is very possible that Father De Smet may have not only baptized Sitting Bull at some time, but induced him and his braves to attend mass, as performed by himself in the wilderness. The benefits of the conversion seem however to have been only skin deep, as far as preventing cruelty in war is concerned.

The Indian tribes were armed with the very latest Spencer, Winchester, and Henry repeating rifles while Custer and his men had the single-shot Springfield.
 Instigated by the jesuits, 6000 indians under Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse defeated Custers small army at Little Big Horn.

The Americans

In the early 18th century, the states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey promoted a genocide of their local Natives by imposing a "scalp bounty" on dead Indians. In 1703, Massachusetts paid 12 pounds for an Indian scalp. By 1723 the price had soared to 100 pounds.
Ward Churchill wrote: "Indeed, in many areas murdering Indians became an outright business." This practice of paying a bounty for Indian scalps continued into the 19th century before the public put an end to the practice.
Thus the scalping of slain opponents was certainly not a native american practice at all, it was the white mans practice for bounty as opposed what has been propagated by Hollywood.

In the 18th century, George Washington compared them to wolves, "beasts of prey" and called for their total destruction.
In 1814, Andrew Jackson "supervised the mutilation of 800 or more Creek Indian corpses" that his troops had killed. 


Extermination of all of the surviving natives was urged by the Governor of California officially in 1851. An editorial from the Rocky Mountain News in Denver, CO in 1863; and from the Santa Fe New Mexican in 1863 expressed the same sentiment.  In 1867, General William Tecumseh Sherman said, "We must act with vindictive earnestness against the Sioux [Lakotas] even to their extermination: men, women and children."
In 1848, before the gold rush in California, that state's native population is estimated to have been 150,000. In 1870, after the gold rush, only about 31,000 were still alive. Over 60 percent of these indigenous people died from disease introduced by hundreds of thousands of so-called 49ers. However, local tribes were also systematically chased off their lands, marched to missions and reservations, enslaved and brutally massacred. The price paid for a native scalp had dropped as low as $0.25. Native historian, Jack Forbes, wrote:
"The bulk of California's Indians were conquered, and died, in innumerable little episodes rather than in large campaigns. it serves to indict not a group of cruel leaders, or a few squads of rough soldiers, but in effect, an entire people; for ...the conquest of the Native Californian was above all else a popular, mass, enterprise."

The stories of atrocities are endless. A people who only tried to live in harmony with the earth, harvesting in small quantities the food and clothing that the earth would provide. They had no monetary system, however they were good traders in a market of exchange.
The survivors of this holocaust were then rounded up into reservations.

With the establishment of reservations, reminiscent to concentration camps, tribal territories diminished to a fraction of original areas and indigenous customary practices of land tenure sustained only for a time, and not in every instance. Instead, the federal government established regulations that subordinated tribes to the authority, first, of the military, and then of the Bureau (Office) of Indian Affairs.
None of the agreements were ever kept evolving in conflicts.
The Indian Reorganization Act of June 18, 1934, sometimes known as the Indian New Deal, was U.S. federal legislation that secured certain rights to Native Americans, including Alaska Natives. These include actions that contributed to the reversal of the Dawes Act's privatization of communal holdings of American Indian tribes and a return to local self-government on a tribal basis. The Act also restored to Native Americans the management of their assets (being mainly land) and included provisions intended to create a sound economic foundation for the inhabitants of Indian reservations.

In 1979, the Seminole tribe in Florida opened a high-stakes bingo operation on its reservation in Florida. The state attempted to close the operation down but was stopped in the courts. In the 1980s, the case of California v. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians established the right of reservations to operate other forms of gambling operations. In 1988, Congress passed the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, which recognized the right of Native American tribes to establish gambling and gaming facilities on their reservations as long as the states in which they are located have some form of legalized gambling. Today, many Native American casinos are used as tourist attractions, including as the basis for hotel and conference facilities, to draw visitors and revenue to reservations. Successful gaming operations on some reservations have greatly increased the economic wealth of some tribes, enabling their investment to improve infrastructure, education and health for their people.

The three affiliated tribes that were relocated in the Dakota reservation are now making a fortune with the giant oil reserve that was found on their territory. A kind of sour payback after all these generations. However it is also destroying the nature of the reserve.

One day in the near future the native americans will be able to restore the american continent to its original state and teach the 300 million warmongering and ignorant americans a whole new way of life.
This is written in the legends.
