Reflections from the Ah­nish­i­nah­bæójib­way (We, the People)

November 6, 1992

According to last Saturday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Catholic Church of the Holy Roman Empire is formally admitting that Galileo was right when he supported Copernicus’ 1543 “heresy” that the Earth moved around the sun.  The Pope is having his apology proclaimed in the “far corners” of his linguistically Flat Earth.  At the time that Galileo was arrested for his scientifically supported views (and threatened with execution unless he took back what he said and agreed with the Church, which he did), the Holy Roman Empire controlled the definition of what was “true” and what was not true throughout what they said was the “Civilized” world.  The Judo-Christian Church, through one branch or another, still holds Euro-Americans’ Sovereignty, and continues to exercise rigid control over peoples’ thoughts, speech, and actions.

Also just recently, the Christians apologized to the “Indians,” quite a few generations after the Europeans invented Indians by genetic engineering and by re-naming the Aboriginal Indigenous People here.  The purpose of re-naming things comes out of the Christian Bible, which supports the con job of magically gaining control over something by re-naming.  The Christians did not apologize to the Aboriginal People who are Indigenous here—they apologized to their own people, the “Indians” that they made from White people.  There was no apology to the Aboriginal Indigenous People for the rape, plunder, and genocide on our Continent.  The apology was to the “Indians”—maybe what they were apologizing about was turning their blood brothers and bastard sons into “Indians,” and subjecting them to racism in order to completely obliterate every trace of the Anishinabe Ojibway and all other Aboriginal Indigenous People.  The apology is meaningless, because it entrenches the artificial category of “Indians,” and the racism goes on, and the hegemony that the Judo-Christian Church has been trying for the last 500 years to establish on this Continent is only increased by their apology.  Judo-Christianity is still a foreign Sovereignty, and does not belong on this Continent, and never will.  We, the Anishinabe Ojibway People who have lived here and cherished this land for nearly a hundred millennia have a right to exist as a Sovereign Nation on our own land.  No foreigners have any right to come in here and tell us what to do, nor any right, no matter whose “God” they use, to steal our resources.

Paternalism, in plain English, means “Father knows best,” and bullying people into agreeing is done under the falsehood “this will hurt me more than it hurts you.”  Under Paternalism, the Great White Father steals and gives shares of the booty to his Pets—if you’re the Black Sheep, forget it, your Station in Life is intended to be the Homeless Shelters, the Unemployment lines, and the Prisons.  Creating and maintaining the class system—with Father’s pets near the top—is what Social Engineering is all about; and the foreign Dollar money system is a part of this social engineering.  For immigrant people, who do not own the land and resources to import a “legal system” and operate their money system so that they can convert Anishinabe Ojibway Peoples’ resources into money—which they control on the MegaBucks level—is really a diabolical scheme.  There is absolutely nothing “free” in this Euro-American dollar money system.  Really, you even pay for S & L Green stamps, and all of the other parasites that get their hooks into you by promising something “Free.”

The American Public “owns” the financial institutions that went broke before the S & L Bailout, and before Inauguration Day, they are going to own a lot more broken banks than they thought they would, although they will never have any say about how they are managed.  How much is this most recent election Extravaganza going to cost every common peasant and peon (who some columnists call the “Real People”)—and whose grand-children will eventually pay for it, with compound interest?  The Euro-Americans have been engaged in Grand Theft on a massive scale ever since they got here, while destroying everything they couldn’t steal.

The Anishinabe Ojibway Nation has suffered devastating losses, in human suffering as well as in destruction of our resources and theft of our land, to pay for the illusion of “American-Style Democracy.”  The original W.A.S.P. immigrants chose their colonial sites as suited for piracy.  Very little has changed.  From the Anishinabe Ojibway perspective, the Great White Father is racist, a liar, a cheat, and a thief.  Let’s talk about Paternalism.  What is it that Father Knows Best?


The State of Minnesota is a foreign European institution, which is stealing the Anishinabe Ojibway resources, trying to claim that they own the trees and the wildlife and the fish and the air and the water, and everything else that they can think of.  Actually, they are foreigners, and don’t own much of anything besides the Crooked English language, some mad scientist theories that don’t have anything to do with how forest ecosystems really work, and highly developed theories of how to steal.  I am not a “tree hugger,” I am an inseparable part of the forests that belong here.  These forests are a sacred part of my Midewiwin religion; they are the bones of my ancestors from the time that the first pine sprouted here after the ice retreated, and for many millennia before then.

The United States Department of Agriculture mis-manages something they call the “Chippewa Forest.”  The name is appropriate because they are naming their Potemkin Forest after a fake “tribe” of people.  They are publishing a map guiding people to the six rows of trees along the lakes and roads that they call “forest.”  Tourists and White City People can only see the edge of the “forests,” so six rows of trees is probably “deep forest.”  I’ll let you people in on an old Anishinabe Ojibway secret: live in harmony with the forests and you will be able to see all the way in there.  If you look through the six rows of trees along many of Northern Minnesota’s highways, you will be able to see the stumps and the piles of slash and the rest of the mess right behind them.  This is something that the D.N.R. won’t tell you how to do.  If you don’t believe me, drive your car from Northome to International Falls—and get out and walk through the six rows of trees.  In some places, you will see miles and miles of clearcut stretching to the horizon just behind the Potemkin Forest.  If clearcut is as wonderful as the D.N.R. says it is, why don’t they cut all the way to the main highways?  You can also drive around on the back roads on the Reservation, and see what your blood brothers the Chippewa Indians, whom you call the “first environmentalists and first conservationists,” are doing.  These Indo-European “Indians” are immigrant people just like the rest of the foreigners who re-named themselves “Americans,” but who are really still foreigners.  “American” is an European name, and doesn’t belong here.  What the Chippewa Indians have been doing to the Anishinabe Ojibway Nation’s forests shows the Indians’ real European values, and it shows who controls them.

Deer-hunting season is starting.  An elder of the Mah-en-gan Clan and Dodem asked me to send a message to you hunters.  He says, “if the deer each had a rifle, there wouldn’t be any hunters who dared to go in the woods.”
