Reflections from the Ah­nish­i­nah­bæójib­way (We, the People)

October 18,1991

It is said that “history repeats itself,” and that the problems of the past come back to haunt the people of the next generation who do not know what has happened before them.  I was brought up without any access to historical documents about Red Lake.  Books written about Anishinabe Ojibway history are filled with distortions of the truth by Whites and Metis who are lying for their own personal gain.  Some of the writers of “Indian History” are trying to include Aboriginal Indigenous people, who are not Indians, in their Indian mythologies.  The Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Churches have infiltrated our Oral History.  They have also prevented Aboriginal Indigenous people from having access to their documents about our history.  We are putting together an archives for the Anishinabe Ojibway Nation, so that our children and grandchildren will able to see the documentation of what has happened here.  Propaganda, stereotyping and lies about Aboriginal Indigenous people need to be debunked.

Growing up in the 1930’s in Red Lake, except for the strength and role model of my grandfather Bah-wah-we-nind during my formative years, I was vulnerable to the Social Engineering of the Indo-Europeans.  In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the Reservations became a dumping ground for the Indo-Europeans’ misfits and social outcasts.  In the Bureau of Indian Affairs records, there is specific mention of their using these White “Squaw Men” both for Genetic Engineering and to disrupt and destroy the Aboriginal Indigenous communities—this is part of the Cracked MeltingPot Theory.  Many of the role models I had when I was growing up were violent, chronic alcoholics.  The Anishinabe Ojibway community was under intense pressure: at that time the United States was still openly committing genocide (including chemical and germ warfare) against the Anishinabe Ojibway People, and actively demolishing our Aboriginal Indigenous social infrastructure.

The United States’ “final solution” to the “Indian Problem” was—and still is—to replace the Anishinabe Ojibway People with Metis and Whites, who were made into Chip-away Indians and because of their Indian identity are under Indo-European control.  The “Sovereignty” that these Indians allegedly hold is a lie, it is not Aboriginal Indigenous Sovereignty.  Chippewa Indians, who are Metis, are held under White European Sovereignty; when Europeans say “Indians are Sovereign” what the Europeans are doing is making Indians responsible (on paper) for genocide and human rights violations originating with the European policy-makers.  Many of these Indians do not have any Aboriginal Indigenous ancestors at all.  They have Indo-European values, and their stories about history are White Christian and pseudo-scientific mythology.  One of the leading Indian Historians of the 19th century, W.W. Warren, blamed the Aboriginal people for the Fur Trade and Indian wars, made up fanciful lies about the Midewiwin because he could not go into it, and thought along with Joseph Smith that “Indians are the Lost Tribe of Israel.”  If you understand the difference between “Indians” and Aboriginal Indigenous people, if you understand Crooked English, some of what Warren wrote makes sense: “Indians” are a “lost tribe,” they are not and never will be Aboriginal Indigenous Tribal People from these continents.  They take on the identity given them by their White fathers, and become Indians through the Matrilineal line, like certain other conquered, formerly Patrilineal Tribal people.  They may claim “clans” through their mother, but they do not have Anishinabe Ojibway Clans, and they are stuck in Christian thinking.  This is why Leading Whites call them “our Indians.”

Many of these Meti who are posing as Chip-away Indians are even more racist against Aboriginal Indigenous people than most Whites are.  Bemidji claims to be the “Racism Capitol,” but racism in this whole area is reinforced by the Bemidji Whites’ blood-brothers the Chip-away Indians.  The Identity of Chip-away Indians was given to the Meti and Indo-Europeans by the Whites—there is no word “Chippewa” or “Indian” in the Anishinabe Ojibway language.  There were no Indians in our Anishinabe Ojibway homeland, right here where We the People have been for more than fifty thousand years.  The Metis, Creoles, and Whites who are posing as Chip-away Indians did indeed “come from the East;” many of them were already mixed-bloods and halfbreeds when these boat people disembarked after their trans-Atlantic migrations.

In the early 1900’s, the racist Social Engineering Plan was to allot the Red Lake Reservation: to break up our Sovereign Anishinabe Ojibway land into individual allotments so that it could be stolen piecemeal, through Colonially controlled Chip-away Indian brokers, from the Anishinabe Ojibway people who own it.  Once the land was broken up into “individual allotments” the people who were allotted would either be taxed or flooded out of “their” land.  This same strategy was used successfully in White Earth and Leech Lake.

The Anishinabe Ojibway people of Red Lake kept our homeland from being allotted.  So, the United States Government came up with the old crooked strategy of “Democracy”, in the form of the Indian Reorganization Act, passed by the United States Congress in 1934 and brought into Red Lake in 1958 by the Metis and Wanna-be’s who call themselves “Chippewa Indians.”  Liberal Historians blame “Indians” for Democratic Ideas, but in the hands of the Hierarchial Indo-Europeans what “Democracy” means is “packing the rolls, stacking the deck, and dealing from the bottom.”  (Communism is another package for the same dishonest hierarchial thing—Indo-European languages tell any linguist about who these people are, and how Indo-Europeans think and look at the world.)  Some of these Chippewas who were packed onto the “Indian Enrollments” and therefore onto the White Democracy Voter Rolls are blond and blue-eyed Europeans who have absolutely no idea whatsoever what Anishinabe Ojibway people are about.  Even the Chippewa Indians who are dark because of their Moorish ancestors do not have a Clan or a Dodem, have no sense of Anishinabe Ojibway values, and would not understand our Midewiwin Religion even if they could go into it.


Here is a news excerpt from a newspaper published by an Indian Agent, a White employee of the Bureau who worked in Red Lake in the early 1900’s: “Red Lake News, ‘The City of Happiness is in the State of Mind,’ Volume 3, Number 17, May 15, 1915, FARM STATION ITEMS:

“Mr. and Mrs. Louis Gurneau are home again.  Mrs. Gurneau is still on the sick list.

“Mr. and Mrs. Frank Brun visited at Red Lake from the 8th to the 11th.

“Frank Brun’s father from Germany is here on a visit.  He will spend the summer here.

“William Blue visited his father this week.  William is putting in eighteen acres of grain this spring on his tentative allotment near the Well’s place down the river.

“Gus Lajenesse has two and one-half acres cleared on his place near here.  Gus moved his family and household goods in on the 7th.

“Louis Gurneau was real busy acting in the capacity of father, last Sunday.  He sure did some good work.

“Mr. Richardson, the picture man, spent a few days around the Farm Station this week.

“With cows, pigs, chickens, and material for excellent gardens it looks to us as if we have plenty to live on around here besides grass and bull frogs.

“A new colt arrived at the Farm Station on the 10th.”

Frog legs are gourmet food in fancy French restaurants.  And, as far as history repeating itself, “grass” was very recently big news again, out in the Farm Station area.  The descendants of the French Metis and Wanna-be’s who were manipulated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs seventy-five years ago, are still being conned by CrackPot Social Engineering and White Con-Man “Get Rich Quick!” schemes.


The Supreme Court nomination and confirmation of Clarence Thomas, Esq., was another test of the White man’s value system.  The Venerable Men of the United States Senate do not like to air their dirty laundry in public.  The usual scheme of things is to have a closed-door meeting of the Good Old Boys, and Liberally smear White-Wash.  But, those less than sparkling-White values really need to be changed.  We wonder what else the Government was up to, while everybody’s attention was focussed on one African-American Female Law Professor being “lynched” under the White glare of Lime-Lights on Prime Time.  It’s still unclear who got black-balled and who got black-listed, and who is lily-white.


This time of the year has been known as “Indian Summer,” from the word abused by Columbus, who was seriously debilitated by the European mental illness of Greed.  Every Season is beautiful, and this time of the year is really spectacular.  The Indo-Europeans try to own everything by giving it another name, even the seasons.  But, the Europeans don’t put “Indian Summer” on their calendars as an “official season,” because the Policy-Makers (who can adjust holidays and “Save Time” twice a year to get more work out of their slave-labor and make more money) know that “Indian” is an artificial identity that they made up, and they know that there never were people here who were really “Indians.”

Have a nice day, and I hope you have enjoyed this beautiful Aboriginal Summer.
