Paper Genocide of Native American Indians in the Americas
Whites say "White power", Blacks say "Black power", but when our Indian people say "RED POWER" were called racist by everyone else even though we, unlike them, are trying to "REGAIN" our rights and maintain our blood, language, culture, and our unmanipulated history passed down by our Indian Ancestors. This is why there is very big difference in us saying this and others saying it in the Americas, we are doing so in OUR LAND OF ORIGIN, our stolen homeland at that. So the next time any Non-Indian says we are racist for promoting RED POWER please remind them that we have an INHERENT RIGHT to do so because this is OUR HOMELAND, the land of our Ancestors, and nothing will ever change that fact. None have no right to judge us, not even our own who have been turned soft because of many centuries of exposure to multiculturalism, and with that seem to have permanently taken on the invaders mindset and way!
Our people had better stop looking for permission from others to think and speak, Creator already gave us Indians all the permission we will ever need, so you better use it, or lose it.
The Oceti Sakowin was never and shall never be conquered. The holy beings say we are still the rightful People of the Black Hills.
Antonio Sanchez shared Oceti Sakowin's photo.
So I have seen it time and time again, the Wasicu say “your people were conquered.” The Oceti Sakowin was never and shall never be conquered. The holy beings say we are still the rightful People of the Black Hills. The Black Hills is where we came from and is our source of power; the Oceti Sakowin never gave up and fought to keep the forts and wagons out of Lakota territories. The Ska Oyate begged for peace and made many promises that were broken; the Oceti Sakowin gave them a chance to prove what they were made of. If the Oceti Sakowin would have kept fighting and united as one the outcome may have been different, however we know things played out the way they were supposed to. The decimation of our food source and our backbone really zapped the power out of a nation. The buffalo is our blood relative and we are deeply connected to them. They asked for peace and it was given, they broke promises and went behind the back of the Oceti Sakowin to continue secretly plotting and destroying a way of life. Biological warfare was something we never knew of because we were in balance with all life, so step by step plots and schemes were thrown at us. The Wasicu I really believe were summoned by Gnaski to try and end us or destroy us but no matter what he tries we cannot be beaten. Today we have been so divided there is much sickness and needless suffering and we need to remember the Seven Sacred Rites, the Sixteen Holy Mysteries, and above all Tunkasila Wakan Tanka will always be there for us. I share the creation stories because they hold the source of power that each and every one of us has in our DNA, only the Ikce understand. I read somewhere on a post some Lakota man said “the Lakota were passive”, that is not true we were fighters and always will be. The Oceti Sakowin continued to fight the good fight and never gave up beating the US time and time again, capturing the US flag time and time again. The day the last Native dies than they can say we were conquered, Lame Deer said “the day the last Native is killed, is the day the Earth will swallow itself up.” This generation is a time of healing; we are not victims to their ways or what they did to us anymore. There is great and amazing things coming but first we have to face that harsh bitter hatred imposed upon us. Pray for the good RED and BLUE days, pray the new leaders will have a clear strong mind to lead the people out of the despair in our communities. That new day will be full of joy, the old holy man said “you will look and see your relatives again.” Remember you come from a strong powerful NATION that will never be conquered because we have the Sixteen Holy Mysteries with us, we have Wakan Tanka with us and someday they will speak for us and NOTHING can stop them; the fire power you used to steal, kill, and destroy will be taken back from you. There is no end only change, changes that will make us as great as our grandfathers once were!
