Reflections from the Ah­nish­i­nah­bæójib­way (We, the People)


September 2, 1994

According to the Bemidji Pioneer, the 1994-95 Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians’ Royalty were named earlier this month at what the Pioneer called the “Red Lake Nation Fair.”  I telephoned the Bemidji Chamber of Commerce to ask if they knew anything about this Tourist Attraction called Indian Royalty.  After I identified myself, they put me on terminal hold.  It’s a long-distance call from Red Lake Reservation to Bemidji, even though it’s only thirty miles away.  I suppose that the toll rates have something to do with royalty.

The question I wanted to ask the Chamber of Commerce is: why do these upstanding pillars of White society call this the Red Lake Nation, when it began as a concentration camp created by the United States Government on Ahnishinahbæót­jibway land.  Years ago, the U.A. Indian Agent was in absolute military control.  The mixed-bloods could only leave with a pass from the Indian Agent; the Aboriginal Indigenous People could not leave the Red Lake prison-camp at all.  This policy of the U.S. Government was one of many designed by the Euro-Americans to destroy the Aboriginal Indigenous People.

Now, there has been a 180 degrees turnaround: from a concentration camp to a “Nation.”  Most of the people here who call themselves “Indians” and “sovereign” have at least 7/8 White blood, and most of the rest of their ancestry is North African or Indo-European.  (Many do not have any Ahnishinahbæótjibway ancestors at all.)  How can these White people call themselves Indians—and be Federally Recognized as card-carrying Chippewa Indians?  (A person who had 7/8 African-American ancestry would probably not call themselves “White”—although if they had a White patriline, I don’t know why they couldn’t.)

The New Yorker magazine quoted U.C.L.A. Professor G. Reginald Daniel, “We are the only country in the world that applies the one-drop [of black blood] rule.”  The “drop-of-black-blood” is a White concept, which is used by their upper class for social and genetic engineering.  The corollary “drop-of-Indian-blood” rule is a part of the same diabolical scheme, which creates an artificial social class of tainted-blood “Indians,” who can be eliminated with one stroke of the White man’s pen when they are no longer needed.  Indian blood-quantum serves several purposes: it keeps the fractionally-tainted-blood Indians from marrying the White man’s supposedly “lily-white” daughters.  Indian blood quantum also maintains the illusion that the White man’s hands are clean, and creates millions of hypothetical blood-quantum Indians to obscure the heinous genocide of the Aboriginal Indigenous People on this Continent.  White blood-quantum Indians act out the White man’s sick fantasy role of Indians—no self-respecting Ahnishinahbæótjibway person would act that foolish.  Most of the Indians are deluded into thinking that they are Aboriginal Indigenous people (and in fact the U.S. Department of the Interior supports this perversion, paying their Indians big bucks to be pathological liars about their real identity).  But, these cheap imitations don’t know anything about the people whose identity they are trying to steal.

The paradox of the one-drop-of-tainted blood rule is that because of the many wars that raged back and forth across Europe, and the rape and other social diseases that are an inherent part of Western European wars: every White person has been mongrelized and hybridized, and there is no White person of pure White ancestry.  The Euro-Americans are running away from their past and their real identity, just as their European ancestors have done for two thousand years.  European languages are abstractions which obscure reality, and disconnect the people who are trapped by these languages from Nature.  Their subject peoples’ languages have also been distorted—for example, the hierarchical Creole language of Chippewa.  The people who created and mutated this Indian language (stealing words from the Ah­nish­i­nah­bæót­jib­way) also spoke a Creole language: English is a mongrelized, bastard language which has war and other violence, misogyny and racism built right into it.  Because English has a patched-up Creole structure, the English-speaking women of the world should feel no qualms about getting together to make up words and grammar to fit their needs as women.

MURPHY’S LAW:

Murphy’s Law is based on an old superstition blamed on the Irish, “if anything can go wrong, it will.”  Years ago, the 7th Cavalry followed the Boston patriots’ tea party precedent, and dressed up as Indians to assault the women and children of the pioneers’ wagon trains—these atrocities were then used as an excuse to annihilate Aboriginal Indigenous People, leaving the hang-around-the-fort Indians.  They claimed the 19th-century West was “wild,” although the West was not wild before the White immigrants got here and made it wild with their greed.  Now, the West really is wild: shoot-em-in-the-back drive-by shootings, O.J. Simpson, Rodney King police protection, and inner-city riots.  The ecosystem is demolished, and the White settlers are caught in a self-fulfilling prophecy of the violent English language: the “west” has become really “wild.”  Go ahead, Euro-Americans, sing “This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land ... This Land was Made for You and Me.”  When I first heard this song by Woody Guthrie, it seemed gross and repulsive—but we the Aboriginal Indigenous People do not want to claim this violent mess the Euro-American immigrants have made on our land.  What goes around, comes around, and the consequences of Euro-American irresponsi­bility are closer than you think.

In Minnesota, the 8th District Federal Court has superseded the 7th Cavalry.  The recent hunting-and-fishing Treaty-Rights decision rendered by Judge Diana Murphy is being presented in the media as a “victory for Indians,” but if you look closely at it, the Court decided with a flip of a one-sided coin, in favor of the Euro-Americans.  The money involved has always been printed and controlled by the White man.  At the time that the Treaty was signed, the Ahnishinahbæótjibway did not need the White man’s money, and as long as our ecosystem remained intact (into the 1930’s at Red Lake), we were self-sufficient, so the White man’s money was irrelevant and useless.  (We had a pristine water system, there was plenty of fish and game, and we had not been trapped by the immigrants’ greed-ridden mercantile infrastructure.)  But, the White man’s Indians have a White patriline, and because they were created by the Euro-American immigrants, they have always been tied into the White man’s money system.  The Ahnishinahbæótjibway had no reason to sign an Indian treaty drawing us into the alien White and Indian economic system.  The Indian Treaties had nothing to do with the Aboriginal Indigenous People—which is why the State of Minnesota has a vested interest in upholding the crooked Indian Treaties.

Using the forked-tongue English language, the State of Minnesota thinks that they have come up with a heads-I-win, tails-you-lose foolproof scheme to steal the land that still belongs to the Ahnishinahbæótjibway.  On the one hand, they are “upholding” crooked treaties while encouraging White “Bud Grant” backlash to create the illusion of legitimacy; and on the other hand, they are preparing another court case to claim Red Lake Ahnishinahbæótjibway land—on the grounds that it was never ceded.  To further compound their crooked scheme, the State of Minnesota is in collusion with the United States Government, using crooked English to claim that their Indians are “sovereign nations,” which is both a fraud and a big joke. Instead of promoting White racism, Bud Grant and his fishing buddies ought to research the genealogies of their Sovereign Indians with European patrilines.  The State of Minnesota knows that neither the Chippewa Indians nor the other immigrant citizens including the Mille Lacs “landowners” are indigenous to this land, and they are re-entrenching the con job of the 1837 Treaty, trying again to steal the land, and then hoping to use the White resentment they’re molding to horn in on the Federal turf of Indian gaming, and get their 20% cut off the top while crying about compulsive gambling (I hope these greedy people get 50% of the gaming gross, so they can take the blame for all the misery that’s been created by breaking up families).  The Indians, who are White wards of the U.S. Government under Sovereign Trusteeship, have become pawns in yet another power play of the apartheid and Jim Crow European immigrant government.  If the State of Minnesota was honest, they would trash the Indian Treaties, and admit their thievery and complicity in genocide.

If the United Nations did not operate as a puppet of the Western Europeans under Roman Law, the Aboriginal Indigenous Peoples of this Continent could sue the State of Minnesota, the 1934 I.R.A. Indian Tribal Councils, the United States Government, and the Mille Lacs resort owners, who are all illegally here.  Unfortunately, the name “World Court” (operating under Roman and English Law) is an euphemism for the Great White Kangaroo.  The European Nation-States are stealing Indigenous Peoples’ land and resources and destroying Aboriginal Indigenous ecosystems world-wide, using the alien pirate-laws of Western Civilization, while perverting any semblance of justice in the so-called World Court.
