“Once again, our grandmother, the Earth, has offered us, her children, the elements we need to survive. Will we listen?”—Russell Means 1939-2012.

According to a new study by NASA, rising temperatures and melting ice sheets are responsible for a redistribution of the Earth’s weight, causing a shift in the way the planet wobbles on its axis.

Warming ocean temperatures, now considered unstoppable, are responsible for unpredictable severe weather patterns, heat waves, drought, floods and reduced food supplies.

Antarctic ice has begun to melt and break apart. The collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet, also considered unstoppable, will eventually contribute to sea level rise by more than 10 feet, scientists warn. This collapse would leave cities such as New York, Boston, Miami and New Orleans, as well as many other cities around the globe, in peril.

If we were to collectively cease the extraction and consumption of fossil fuels today, and shift to alternative sources of clean energy, these changes may only slow, but not stop, the trajectory we are on.

A New Possibility

Living up to the words of Russell Means, the late Oglala Lakota activist and cofounder of the American Indian Movement, members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota are leading an effort toward energy independence.

This effort, if successful, could serve as a model for how to slow anthropogenic climate disruption.

Their hope is based on a controversial clean energy technology, which is often discredited as conspiracy as it quietly moves into reality.

Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) is being considered by many to be the future of energy.

LENR is defined by E-Cat World, an industry site based on the work of LENR innovator Andrea Rossi, as “the phenomenon where anomalous amounts of heat are created when certain metals (e.g., nickel, palladium) absorb hydrogen or deuterium and an external stimulus such as heat or an electric current is applied. The reaction takes place at a relatively low temperature and sometimes results in transmutation of elements as well as the production of heat.”

Tim Maloney is an architect and eco-designer who has consulted for NASA, Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Department of Energy and has been an innovator of eco-friendly home designs.

“My personal view is that you and I are cave men, looking out the door of the cave in anticipation of potentially stepping out.” Maloney told Truthout. “I find that to be really good news. Who knows what it feels like on the other side, but I’m looking forward to getting used to it.”

His architecture firm has received awards from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for creating homes that maintained an efficient relationship to the sun and environment as well as advances in solar energy technology and related building products.

“We really are at the tipping point of the formal acceptance of this technology,” Maloney said. The challenge, he said, is, “How do we introduce something too good to be true?”

The answer, according to one company developing this revolutionary technology, may be to provide it first to the Lakota Nation, which has approached the company about a potential collaboration.

According to Brillouin Energy Corporation (BEC), which is working alongside the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), the company’s “unique form of LENR, the Controlled Electron Capture Reaction (CECR), generates excess thermal energy (heat) by using very small amounts of hydrogen, nickel and electricity for inputs. Hydrogen is loaded, in the form of either a wet electrolyte, or as a gas, into highly engineered metallic cores constructed from nickel inside of a pressure vessel…and catalyzed with electrical charges…generating industrially useful process heat, and no (zero) pollutants of any kind.”

On November 2, 2015, in Washington, DC, BEC held a demonstration for Congress and members of the scientific community of its LENR technology, intended to open up opportunities for discussion of the commercial development of the Brillouin boiler system.

Brillouin’s system is expecting to return 10 watts of thermal energy for every 1 watt of electrical energy input.

At the demonstration, Phyllis Young, a member of the Hunkpapa Lakota and Ihanktonwan Dakota (Hunkpapa Lakota and Ihanktonwan Dakota are different bands of the same Oceti Sakowin-or Sioux Nation) Nations and a co-founder of the activist organization Women of All Red Nations, spoke to the room full of scientists and engineers about the possibility of bringing this energy into our homes.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has endorsed LENR technology, sometimes referred to as “cold-fusion” or, in Brillouin’s case, “controlled electronic capture reaction,” and is seeking funding from the Department of Energy and the Department of Agriculture for the deployment of clean energy projects, education and planning of this technology.

BEC chief executive officer Robert W. George II told Truthout, “We were approached by members of the Lakota Nation. We told them what we were doing and we felt that there is a need there.”

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has proposed that scientists and engineers come to the colleges of the Oceti Sakowin (Great Sioux Nation) to educate and train its members in the application of this technology. Additionally, young college students would get involved by going to SRI and BEC to observe the technology and learn firsthand about its possibilities.

The Hunkpapa Development Corporation was formed, according to Young, by members throughout the Oceti Sakowin to receive grants and begin construction on a series of specialized dome housing units based on a design by David Weinkauf of Two Trees Inc. These units will be based on a model built specifically to house the Brillouin Boiler and will be built on land specifically designated for their construction.

Members of the Oceti Sakowin will be involved in the education, planning and construction of the housing.

“They are a sovereign nation within the United States,” said George. “This will allow housing that they have been building on the reservations to have heat and hot water and the energy independence that would be necessary for them to increase their standard of living.”

Racing such companies as Lockheed Martin Skunk Works division, which also have claimed recent breakthroughs in this area, George explained to Truthout that BEC is only about two years away from a commercial boiler system prototype that a manufacturer could begin reproducing.

Further separating them from the pack, explained George, is BEC’s claim to have designed an “on and off switch” which can control the flow of energy output for their system. “We are not aware of anyone else who has a control system,” George told Truthout.

“You don’t need any fuel,” he said. “There’s no fuel because there’s no combustion going on. So you’ll basically have a boiler which can operate on the Lakota Nation with a tiny amount of electricity which can run off a battery.”

Safety Concerns

Given the ongoing horror of the Fukushima disaster, any mention of the word “nuclear” understandably generates fear and skepticism. LENR technology, however, has not been found to produce any of the harmful waste associated with current forms of nuclear or conventional energy production.

Joseph Zawodny, a senior research scientist with NASA’s Langley Research Center, told Forbes reporter Jeff McMahon that LENR “has the demonstrated ability to produce excess amounts of energy cleanly, without hazardous ionizing radiation, without producing nasty waste.”

“The easiest implementation of this would be for the home. You would have a unit that would replace your water heater. And you would have some sort of cycle to derive electrical energy from that,” Zawodny told McMahon.

In his article on LENR, McMahon quotes Dennis Bushnell, the chief scientist at NASA’s Langley Research Center, as saying that “several labs have blown up studying LENR and windows have melted … indicating when the conditions are right prodigious amounts of energy can be produced and released.”

However, McMahon’s article also includes a response from Chicago physicist Lewis Larsen, who argues that “all such violent energetic events are quite rare — only a handful have ever occurred over the past 20-plus years during the course of literally hundreds of thousands of LENR experiments … and most importantly, NONE of these incidents were caused by a nuclear explosion per se.”

If the research on LENR yields practical results, this technology might even be considered as a possibility for space flight: Doug Wells of the NASA Langley Research Center has proposed a study for LENR-powered spacecraft.

In this proposal, he states, “The purpose of this research is to investigate the potential vehicle performance impact of applying the emergent Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) technology to aircraft propulsion systems. LENR potentially has over 4,000 times the density of chemical energy with zero greenhouse gas or hydrocarbon emissions. This technology could enable the use of an abundance of inexpensive energy to remove active design constraints, leading to new aircraft designs with very low fuel consumption, low noise, and no emissions.”

LENR’s relative safety can be attributed to its slow-moving neutrons. As Extreme Tech explains, “Whereas fission creates fast neutrons (neutrons with energies over 1 megaelectron volt), LENR utilizes neutrons with an energy below 1eV — less than a millionth of the energy of a fast neutron. Whereas fast neutrons create one hell of a mess when they collide with the nuclei of other atoms, LENR’s slow neutrons don’t generate ionizing radiation or radioactive waste. It is because of this sedate gentility that LENR lends itself very well to vehicular and at-home nuclear reactors that provide both heat and electricity.”

An End to Energy Scarcity?

This technology could potentially end the fossil fuel energy industry and usher in a new period that Maloney refers to as the “end of scarcity.”

“It strikes me in the short term as very problematic. The closer this gets the more concerned I am at the level of disruption which this is going to cause,” said Maloney about potential shifts in geopolitical alliances and global interests that an unlimited free energy may create. “But in the long term,” he adds, “an opportunity of unimagined proportion.”

This reality is becoming hard to ignore.

In an unprecedented shift in public discourse, Congress’s National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 brings the subject out of the realm of “junk science” once and for all, while warning about its consequences:

The committee is aware of recent positive developments in developing low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), which produce ultra-clean, low-cost renewable energy that have strong national security implications. For example, according to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), if LENR works it will be a ”disruptive technology that could revolutionize energy production and storage.” The committee is also aware of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency’s (DARPA) findings that other countries including China and India are moving forward with LENR programs of their own and that Japan has actually created its own investment fund to promote such technology. DIA has also assessed that Japan and Italy are leaders in the field and that Russia, China, Israel, and India are now devoting significant resources to LENR development.

Even more explicitly, it goes on to say:

To better understand the national security implications of these developments, the committee directs the Secretary of Defense to provide a briefing on the military utility of recent US industrial base LENR advancements to the House Committee on Armed Services by September 22, 2016. This briefing should examine the current state of research in the United States, how that compares to work being done internationally and an assessment of the type of military applications where this technology could potentially be useful.

Still, not all are convinced. LENR has often been shunned by the scientific community since its original inception, when it was called “cold fusion.” Huw Price, a Bertrand Russell Professor of Philosophy and a fellow of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge, writes, “As a question about sociology, the answer is obvious. Cold fusion is dismissed as pseudoscience, the kind of thing that respectable scientists and science journalists simply don’t talk about (unless to remind us of its disgrace).”

Lakota supporters of this technologyremain undeterred. In Washington, DC, Young spoke about educating young people about LENR as well as the need for her nation to become partners with those in the US who share the desire to cease the dependence on fossil fuels.

Young told Truthout, “Technology has exceeded balance. It has created a toxic environment that is more harmful and damaging to human life. A human life is threatened after three to five days without water. Native People are keepers of Mother Earth. There is a limitless clean energy that we have a duty to create and develop and use for the people.”

The Vision

The idea for the use of LENR by the Lakota originated in 2008, when Russell Means brought the idea of the Lakota Nation being powered by LENR to media ecologist and radio show host James Martinez, who has been working to see it happen ever since.

Martinez had been speaking about the technology on his show when Means heard about it.

“I was initially scared out of my mind,” Martinez told Truthout, about being approached by Means. “It was not going to be an easy task. I didn’t want to let him down.”

Martinez said, “I knew why he was asking me. I knew it was for not only the rise of Native American culture again to where it should be but also for the ethical deployment of the technology through the eyes, ears and hearts of the Lakota people…. They are the real environmentalists.”

“Our energy project is called ‘Wi Waci’, which literally means ‘sun dance.’ Our ceremony is called ‘Wiwáŋyaŋg Wačhípi.’ That refers to our sacred Sun Dance ceremony,” Young explained to Truthout, differentiating the project name from the ceremony of renewal at the heart of her culture.

Young said that she and other Lakota supporters of LENR technology believe that just as the sun warms the Earth every spring and brings life and renewal to the Earth, LENR can also serve a similar purpose, ushering in a new era of life and renewal not only to the Earth, but to the outmoded ways of thinking which have brought us to the precipice we find ourselves on now.

This technology “must be endorsed,” Young said. “It must be funded, invested in, developed, and implemented. Our existing technology has taken its toll on Mother Earth. It’s time to protect her existence. Human survival depends on it.”

Be still and know. Anyone can verbally attack another. Anyone can be a smart aleck. Anyone can be angry and tell other people things that will hurt them. Anyone can be sarcastic, devaluating and belittling. It takes a Warrior to be silent. Silence is so powerful. Silence can be so loving.

My Creator, if I get into a situation today that needs me to respond with silence, help me to use my silence in a good and sacred way. In my silence, let me be talking to You and You talking to me. Silence is the way of the warrior.

First Nations say they have the power to stop Trans Mountain expansion First Nations say the courts, not the NEB or cabinet, will decide on the controversial pipeline By Tracy Johnson, CBC News Posted: May 20, 2016 9:00 AM ET Last Updated: May 20, 2016 11:34 AM ET The National Energy Board has recommended the federal government approve Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline.

First Nations say the courts, not the NEB or cabinet, will decide on the controversial pipeline

By Tracy Johnson, CBC News Posted: May 20, 2016 9:00 AM ETLast Updated: May 20, 2016 11:34 AM ET

The National Energy Board has recommended the federal government approve Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline.

The Stó:lō collective of First Nations in British Columbia is very familiar with the transport of oil. The existing Trans Mountain pipeline has crossed through their land for more than 50 years. CN Rail also carries oil by rail directly across Stó:lō territory to the B.C. coast.

So, the collective of eleven First Nations in B.C.’s Fraser Valley came to consultations with Kinder Morgan for the expansion of Trans Mountain with an open mind.

“We have taken time to speak to Kinder Morgan,” said Ernie Crey, the chief of the Cheam First Nation, a member of the collective.

“We’ve also weighed and considered a new pipe versus seeing all this bitumen moving along the rail lines straight through many of our communities. Some of the houses in our communities are literally feet from the rail line.”

But Crey said the nations were also concerned about the pipeline’s proximity to the Coquihalla River, which feeds into the Fraser River.

“I think their responsibility and duty goes much deeper to us than to send a few public officials to [a] meeting with us for an hour or two.” – Ernie Crey, Stó:lō Collective

“The Fraser River is the most productive salmon-bearing stream on Earth and we depend on the annual runs of salmon.”

A breach of either the oil or new Trans Mountain pipeline in the summer months would be disastrous for the salmon run.

Pipe versus rail

“We weighed and considered a pipe versus all this product being moved by rail and we considered what was the wiser of two difficult choices, bitumen by rail and bitumen by pipe and we thought the safer bet might be bitumen by pipe,” said Crey.

But the Stó:lō did not sign onto the project, a sign that the consultations done by Kinder Morgan, considered acceptable by the National Energy Board, did not go far enough to convince even those who had an open mind about the pipeline expansion.The Stó:lō are not formally opposed to the project either, as one of the nations most affected by the expansion, they simply remain to be convinced.

That does not leave an easy job for three-member panel appointed this week by the federal government to further consult with communities along the route.

Rueben George

Crey said that representatives from Natural Resources Canada have visited the Stó:lō in recent weeks.

“They’ve made a one-time pass through our community. I’ve referred to it as a drive-by consultation,” said Crey. “I think their responsibility and duty goes much deeper to us than to send a few public officials to [a] meeting with us for an hour or two.”

Farther down the pipeline route, the Tsleil Waututh First Nation has little faith that the panel will be able to bring opponents onside.

The territory of the Tsleil-Waututh includes the Burrard Inlet, which would see increased tanker traffic if Trans Mountain is approved. The First Nation is steadfastly opposed to the project and plans to challenge it in the courts.

“They did that NEB process in 25 months,” said Rueben George, a spokesman for the Tsleil Waututh. “And you’re going to try to take care of that big mess in four months, that’s ridiculous.”

Consult or consent?

George said that the legal landscape has changed for First Nations and resources development.

“First Nations are winning 97 per cent of our court cases around resource extraction. That’s 170 legal cases in the last couple years. That’s a lot of veto power right there.”

The most significant case fought by First Nations was decided in June, 2014, by the Supreme Court of Canada, which ruled that provincial and federal governments must win consent of Aboriginal groups when regulating economic activity on titled lands, unless it can show a pressing public need for that activity.

That case was brought forward by the Tsilhqot’in nation in response to clear-cutting of trees on its territory. Since the decision, there has been a shift in which First Nations now feel that the duty to consult means corporations and government really need to seek consent.

“We’ve been doing the traditional ‘duty to consult’ types of processes for 10 or 15 years,” said Bruce McIvor, a lawyer with First Peoples Law.

Courts will ultimately decide

“But since the Tsilhqot’in decision in 2014 and the full adoption of UNDRIP [The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples] by the federal government, we’re moving out of that need-to-consult type of process and we’re moving toward consent-based consultation. That’s where we’re going.”

McIvor said the National Energy Board decision yesterday, or the final decision by cabinet in December, will not be the last word on Trans Mountain.

“The process that the NEB went through will be reviewed by the courts and if the courts find that it doesn’t live up to the government’s obligations under Section 35 of the constitution, it has a wide latitude to null the decision to tell them to go back and do it again.”

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for,
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love,
for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring on your
moon.
I want to know if you have touched the center of your
sorrow,
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or
have become shriveled and closed from fear of further
pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own,
without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own,
if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you
to
the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to
be careful, be realistic, or to remember the limitations of
being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you’re telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to
yourself;
if you can bare the accusation of betrayal and not betray
your own soul.

I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore be
trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not
pretty everyday,
and if you can source your life from God’s presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine,
and still stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the
silver of the full moon, “Yes!”

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much
money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief
and despair,
weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be
done for the children. It doesn’t interest me who you are,
how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire
with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you
have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the
inside when all else fades away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if
you truly like the company you keep in the empty
moments.

Tribes Create Their Own Food Laws to Stop USDA From Killing Native Food Economies


From blue corn to bison, narrow federal food-safety codes impact tribal food systems. But advocates are writing their own food laws to preserve Native food sovereignty.
OutsideVines_650.jpg

SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY, Ariz. – Jacob Butler eyed a lemon tree—its bright yellow fruit nestled among thick green leaves and set against the blue Arizona sky—then checked on the tiny pomegranates and grapes in the garden as a black-striped lizard darted into the shade of a mesquite tree. In the distance, downtown Phoenix glittered under the rising sun.

”Our garden is a platform to perpetuate our culture.“

“We try to grow what’s been here for hundreds, if not thousands, of years,” says Butler, the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community garden coordinator, as he surveyed the land and the plants growing on it. “For the past 13 years we’ve been doing this, so it’s in the minds of the people now.”

Traditionally, Pima and Maricopa tribal members grew lima beans, squash, corn, and other vegetables; used mesquite trees for food, medicine, and other practical purposes; and relied on wild game for food. Today, about 12,000 acres of their reservation are used for industrial farming—cotton, alfalfa, potatoes, and other commercial crops—but, in the garden where Butler works, agriculture isn’t a financial boon: It’s a way to strengthen and cultivate culture.

“What are the stories that go along with this tree? What’s the story we tell that says when squash came to the people or corn came to the people? What are the songs that go with those things?” says Butler. “That’s what we incorporate here: Our garden is a platform to perpetuate our culture.”

According to Butler, tribal members once cultivated myriad varieties of beans, squash, and melons. Now, many of those crops have become extinct and their stories lost, and losing other heirloom foods would have irreversible effects on cultural practices.

Indigenous communities have been sustained by thousands of years of food knowledge. But recent federal food safety rules could cripple those traditional systems and prevent the growth of agricultural economies in Indian Country, according to advocates and attorneys. Of the 567 tribal nations in the United States, only a handful have adopted laws that address food production and processing. Without functioning laws around food, tribes engaged in anything from farming to food handling and animal health are ceding power to state and federal authorities.

To protect tribal food systems, those advocates and attorneys are taking the law into their own hands, literally, by writing comprehensive food codes that can be adopted by tribes and used to effectively circumvent federal food safety codes. Because tribes retain sovereignty—complicated and sometimes limited though it may be—they can assert an equal right with the federal government to establish regulations for food handling.

Recent federal food safety rules could cripple those traditional systems.

“Tribal sovereignty is food sovereignty, and how do you assert food sovereignty?” says A-dae Romero-Briones, a consultant with the First Nations Development Institute, an economic development organization. “You do that through a tribal code.”

Food codes and laws are basic legislation governing agriculture and food processing. Food codes are good things: They are designed to protect consumers from products that could make them sick or even kill them, as with a national salmonella outbreak linked to peanut butter in 2008, and, more recently, E. Coli outbreaks at Chipotle restaurants in 11 states.

Since 2011, food laws have become tougher, thanks to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the first major rewrite of U.S. food-safety laws in more than 50 years. Under FSMA, producers must take into account everything from the packaging and refrigeration of products to how crops are grown, all in the name of safety. These safety controls raise interesting questions in Indian Country.

In many Native communities, for example, access to certified kitchens and state-of-the-art facilities is slim to nonexistent. That means producers often must rely on traditional knowledge to make foods that are safe for consumption. One example, says Romero-Briones, is blue corn products.

“That’s an industry that has existed for generations,” she says. “But if you want to produce it or process it in traditional fashions, you’re probably not going to be able to do that because you’re going to have to do it in a certified kitchen.”

Under FSMA, tribal food economies face two options: Assimilate by complying with federal law or keep tribal food products confined to the reservation.

“It’s one thing to say that we have to develop food and process food in certain ways, but it’s another thing to recognize that tribes have their own versions of food safety,” says Romero-Briones. “Tribes have been developing food economies for thousands of years.”

Another example of how traditional foods are impacted is buffalo slaughter. Dozens of tribes from the Dakotas to Oklahoma are engaged in buffalo management and harvesting. But those hoping to get buffalo products into markets outside of tribal communities often face big hurdles.

”Tribes have been developing food economies for thousands of years.“

Buffalo, for example, is considered an exotic animal under federal guidelines, says Dan Cornelius, with the Intertribal Agriculture Council. And that has repercussions when it comes to what the federal government will support.

“For domestic animals, USDA will pay for the cost of that inspector. For exotics, they don’t,” Cornelius says.

Inspections can run as high as $70 an animal, and all buffalo products must be processed in an FDA-approved facility. By implementing food codes, tribes could find alternative ways to getting buffalo meat inspected and processed. Cornelius says building an infrastructure that lowers costs would allow buffalo meat to get to market faster.

“Ultimately, is it a safe process? If it is, then how can you develop a tribally specific provision that still is ensuring a safe and healthy food but is addressing that barrier where there is a conflict?” he says.

So how do 567 different tribes with 567 different traditions, needs, and goals go about writing food codes specific to their cultural heritages? They call a lawyer. Specifically, Janie Hipp, director of the Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative, a legal think tank at the University of Arkansas.

Hipp, a former senior advisor for tribal relations at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, says her office has already received dozens of calls from tribal governments about food inspection and how to get tribal products off reservation and into other markets.

One area of concern has been general food safety. With the passage of FSMA, laws governing how food is grown, processed, and handled are changing rapidly.

According to Hipp, tribal governments need to respond, not only to protect their own producers, but also to protect their own existing food production systems.

Intellectual property is another priority. Many tribes have specific, traditional uses for seeds, crops, and livestock, and, without laws to protect a tribe’s unique use of a particular plant or animal, a corporation could trademark and commercialize that product—anything from Wojapi, a Lakota dessert made from berries, to Piki, a traditional Hopi bread made from cornmeal.

“Having nothing on the books is not an option anymore,” says Hipp. “Regardless of whether it’s a commercialized product or a traditional and very sheltered and protected product, the law needs to be robust in that area.”

The development of tribal food codes isn’t a copy-and-paste job, though. It’s more of a choose-your-own-adventure situation where newly written laws can be adopted, then tweaked to an individual tribe’s needs. As portions of the code are written, they’re made public so tribal governments can start adapting them. So far, Hipp says the Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative has had more than a dozen meetings with tribes.

”Are we putting our seeds at risk?”

“I don’t think it does anybody any good for us to just sit and bake it up for three years,” said Hipp. “We would prefer to roll things out, get in touch, modify, have it be a more organic process than to just have everybody sitting outside the room waiting for the release.”

Back at the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community garden, Jacob Butler pulled a brown paper bag off a shelf. He dipped his hand into the bag and produced a fistful of white pea seeds.

Most of the seeds in the seed bank are heirlooms with genealogies stretching back hundreds of years. YES! photo by Tristan Ahtone.

“My generation and generations before me, we all went to school outside of the community,” says Butler. “None of us really got taught our culture directly at home because our parents were taught that it was a detriment to our success.”

The seed bank is currently housed in a janitor’s closet with brown paper bags, plastic bottles, and glass containers full of pinto-striped runner beans, amaranth, basil, luffa, corn, and dozens of other seeds. But Butler says he has concerns for their future.

“For me, it’s cross-contamination with [genetically modified] seeds,” he says. “If this was to become a bigger enterprise, where we were growing traditional foods for sale, then are we putting our seeds at risk?”

Most of the seeds are heirlooms with genealogies stretching back hundreds of years, and Butler says one of his next projects is to meticulously catalogue every item in the bank for future Pima and Maricopa farmers.

“There are kids that have grown up being a part of this program that know right off the bat, ‘Oh hey, that’s a Keli Baasho or a muskmelon,’” Butler says as he looked around the shelves. “That word Keli Baasho means ‘old man’s chest,’ so they’re associating that melon with language.”

With food and culture so intimately intertwined and vital to the survival of Salt River, the tribe has some big ideas to consider when it comes to the future of agriculture: Will it be commercial or traditional? What constitutes organic? How will the few remaining heirloom crops be protected from GMO contamination? Will Pima and Maricopa crops be sold, and, if so, how will they be kept safe for consumers? Salt River has yet to decide on those issues, and Butler says adopting a comprehensive food code would start the process of strengthening the tribe’s future: Native people growing native foods, protected and guided by native laws.

“It’s a conversation we should be having,” says Butler. “People are wanting to see change.”

12 Plants Native Americans Used to Cure Everything (From joint pain to cancer)


v

The Native American tribe Cherokee is indigenous to the Southeastern United States. This tribe believed that they have been given a gift by the Creator which enabled them to understand and use medicinal herbs.

They believed and used the benefits of nature’s pharmacy. Moreover, as plants can become scarce over time, they had a unique gathering method and they picked every third plant they found and thus made sure that they will leave sufficient to continue to propagate.

However, the following 12 plants were used by this tribe in the treatment of almost every single illness and health condition. However, before we explain their properties, we must warn you that they can be quite strong and dangerous if not used properly.

Keep in mind that the Cherokee healers were experienced as they had centuries of practice. Furthermore, it is of high importance to understand their value as powerful natural medications, so you should be gentle when scavenging them.

These are the natural plants that provide amazing health benefits:

Big Stretch (Wild Ginger)

This tribe believed that the mild tea from the root of wild ginger stimulates digestion, and treats the upset stomach, colic, and intestinal gas. Also, the strong tea from the root of wild ginger can eliminate secretion from the lungs.

Another Native American tribe, The Meskwaki, cured earaches by using crushed, steeped stems of wild ginger. The rootstocks can replace regular ginger and flowers as flavoring for numerous recipes you prepare.

Hummingbird Blossom (Buck Brush)

The Cherokee used this medicinal plant to treat mouth and throat issues, inflammation, cysts, and fibroid tumors, and it has been found to regulate high blood pressure and treat lymphatic blockages.

The Cherokee usually used it as a diuretic to stimulate the function of the kidneys, as well as in the case of:

  • enlarged spleens
  • hemorrhoids
  • inflamed tonsils
  • menstrual bleeding
  • enlarged lymph nodes

The Cherokee would steep the leave and flowers in a boiling water for 5 minutes and then consumed it warm in order to obtain best results.

Pull Out a Sticker (Greenbriar)

This plant’s roots are rich in starch, which is full of calories, but has a strange flavor.  The stems and leaves are high in numerous minerals and vitamins. As it has a rubbery texture, you can use its roots like potatoes.

This plant has been used as a mild diuretic in the case of urinary infections and to purify the blood. Its bark and leaves have also been used for the preparation of an ointment which heals burns and minor sores.

Its leaves can be added to tea in order to treat arthritis, and the berries can be either consumed raw, or made into jam.

Mint

Mint is extremely popular nowadays, and it is often consumed in the form of a tea. However, only a few know that it has strong antioxidant properties and that it is high in vitamin C, A, fiber, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus.

It has been used by the Cherokee to improve digestion, and its leaves were made into ointments, crushed and applied as cold compresses, or added to baths in order to treat skin itchiness.

Moreover, its leaves and stems were also used as a treatment for high blood pressure. You can also prepare a mint water to treat your cracked nipples while breastfeeding!

Blackberry

This has been the most popular medicine in the case of an upset stomach, but it also has numerous other uses. It can be used to relieve bleeding gums if you chew the leaves.

You can make a cough syrup by preparing a decoction from the roots, sweetened with maple syrup or honey. The strong tea from its root reduces the swelling of the joints and tissues.

These delicious berries are rich in important nutrients, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin K, riboflavin, thiamine, folate, and niacin, as well as potassium, zinc, calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous. Furthermore, they are abundant in essential amino acids and dietary fiber.

These are some other benefits of this plant:

  • strengthened immune system
  • relief from endothelial dysfunction
  • cancer prevention
  • healthy functioning of the heart
  • improved digestion

Cattail

This plant has been regarded as a potent preventative medicine, which is easily digested and promotes recovery from various health conditions. Despite the seed heads and the mature leaves, all other parts of this herb have medicinal properties. Its root is rich in starch and the male plants are rich in pollen.

It can be prepared similarly to potatoes, mashed and boiled. The resulting paste treats sores and burns. Also, its pollen is rich in protein and can be used as a supplement in baking.

Its flowers can help in the case of diarrhea. You can also use the fuzz from flowers, known as the seed down, in order to prevent skin irritation in babies, like diaper rash.

Qua lo ga (Sumac)

This entire plant has potent medicinal properties, as its bark can be prepared as a mild decoction which soothes diarrhea and a sore throat, the ripe berries are high in vitamin c, so you can consume them in the form of juice, and its leaves can be used in the preparation of a tea which reduces fever.

Also, you can make an ointment from its crushed leaves and use it to relieve a poison ivy rash. Furthermore, according to a study published in Iranian Journal of Pharmaceutical Research, the regular consumption of sumac lowers cholesterol levels.

Jisdu Unigisdi (Wild Rose)

This plant’s fruit is high in vitamin C and effectively treats the flu and common cold. The Cherokee prepared a mild tea out of wild rose hips to stimulate the function of the kidneys and the bladder.

The wild rose petal infusion can be used to soothe your sore throat, and a decoction of the root will treat diarrhea. Its petals can also be used in the preparation of a tasty jam.

Mullein

This medicinal herb successfully helps in the case of asthma and chest congestion. The Cherokee believed that inhaling the smoke from burning mullein roots and leaves effectively calms the lungs and opens up pathways. Its flowers can be used in the preparation of tea with a mild sedative effect.

This herb has an amazing soothing activity on the mucous membranes. In order to reduce joint pain and swelling, you can prepare a warm decoction and soak your feet in it. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties which relieve the pain and irritation of tissues.

Kawi Iyusdi (Yellow Dock)

This herb has been a common ingredient in the kitchen, as it is similar to spinach, but includes much more minerals and vitamins. Its roots gather nutrients from deep underground.

Its leaves are high in iron and act as a laxative. Prepare a juice decoction out of the stems to soothe the itching, minor sores, or diaper rash. Moreover, the decoction from its crushed roots has powerful antiseptic properties and can be used as a warm wash.

Squirrel Tail (Yarrow)

The Squirrel Tail has powerful blood clotting properties, so in order to stop the bleeding, you can apply some fresh and crushed leaves on the wound.

Its juice mixed with spring water stops internal bleeding from the stomach and intestinal illnesses. Its leaves can also be used as a tea to improve digestion and boost the function of the stomach, and they are also incredible in the treatment of acne.

This herb is also effective in the case of gallbladder and kidney issues. This plant is also effective in the treatment of skin irritations and chapped hands.

I Never Knew That Abraham Lincoln Ordered The Largest MASS HANGING IN US HISTORY, Or Why He Did It


I Never Knew That Abraham Lincoln Ordered The Largest MASS HANGING IN US HISTORY, Or Why
 

Sometimes the truth is hidden from us as kids. Should you bring it up as an adult you get ridiculed…

12661780_1060569720651668_8475043731323969041_n

People think that Abe Lincoln was such a benevolent President. He was actually a bit of a tyrant. He attacked the Confederate States of America, who succeeded from the Union due to tax and tariffs. (If you think it was over slavery, you need to find a real American history book written before 1960.)

This picture is of 39 Santee Sioux Indian men that were ordered to be executed by Abraham Lincoln for treaty violations (IE: hunting off of their assigned reservation). Yes, the “Great Emancipator” as the history books so fondly referred to him as.

Authorities in Minnesota asked President Lincoln to order the immediate execution of all 303 Indian males found guilty. Lincoln was concerned with how this would play with the Europeans, whom he was afraid were about to enter the war on the side of the South. He offered the following compromise to the politicians of Minnesota: They would pare the list of those to be hung down to 39. In return, Lincoln promised to kill or remove every Indian from the state and provide Minnesota with 2 million dollars in federal funds.

So, on December 26, 1862, the “Great Emancipator” ordered the largest mass execution in American History, where the guilt of those to be executed was entirely in doubt. Regardless of how Lincoln defenders seek to play this, it was nothing more than murder to obtain the land of the Santee Sioux and to appease his political cronies in Minnesota.

You have no idea the things that are hidden from you with the textbooks assigned to you as a child by your government. Stay mindful people, be aware….in the age of information being ignorant is indeed a choice.

You are currently seeing the wholesale attempt to REWRITE yet another chapter in American History were the Confederate Battle Flag is concerned. Now there is talk of digging up graves and moving bodies that ‘offend’ people. This is nothing more than desecration of the dead.

Have a disagreement with history, and not wanting to remember the War Between the States, is one thing. But to erase a significant event in national history is another. And sets a dangerous precedent. What will fall victim next to Political Correctness?

Corey Goode “Inner Earth Update” Season 4, Episode 8 ‘Transcript’ 4/27/16


 

 

David Wilcock: Welcome to “Cosmic Disclosure”. I’m your host, David Wilcock, and I’m here with Corey Goode. We’re talking about the Inner Earth, a fascinating sequence of data that we have been covering on this show. So Corey, welcome back to the program.

Corey Goode: Thank you.

David: All right. So in the previous episodes, what we’ve gone through is the updates about the first meeting that you had with the people in the Inner Earth.

Corey: Correct.

David: But you have since been taken up there or taken down there again.

Corey: Correct, but before that happened, there was a meeting at a Secret Space Program base in the Kuiper Belt that I was brought to by the Secret Space Program Alliance.

David: When you say before that happened, you mean before you were brought into the underground . . .

Corey: Before I was brought back to . . .

David: The underground cities again?

Corey: Yes. Before that occurred. And this was a pretty significant meeting. The Inner Earth group that . . . The group I had talked to that I can now say they are named the Anshar, the group that had the Saturn amulet.

Pink Saturn Group No Hoods

David: Ah.

Corey: The priestess, her name was Kaaree. And she was going to be present with a delegation of her group, so I was invited and was very excited as well.

S03ep04 01

Corey: And her delegation arrived on one of their vessels, I believe, because I didn’t actually see them arrive. I just saw them coming in to the main area where we were to meet them, to then escort them through some passageways into an area for the meeting.

And Gonzales and I were . . . I mean, you could just feel the excitement. They were just beaming with excitement and anticipation.

David: So they hadn’t been in contact with the Sphere Beings before?

Corey: Yeah, yeah. Per the discussion we had in the library, they hadn’t had any contact, and this was their first contact with the Sphere Beings, which they referred to as the Guardians. So they were very excited, and when we got them in the room . . .

David: What did this base look like, though? Because you’re seeing it, but the audience is not necessarily seeing it.

Corey: Yes.

David: How cool does this place look?

Corey: It’s not a real cool, super high tech sophisticated place. It’s more of . . . It’s pretty spartan.

David: Okay.

Corey: You wouldn’t . . . It’s not like . . .

David: It could be a building on Earth?

Corey: If you were underground, maybe.

David: Okay.

Corey: Like an underground military base.

David: Okay.

Corey: Nothing super significant that you’d think would be sci-fi looking on the inside.

David: High ceilings?

Corey: About normal.

David: Okay.

Corey: Yeah. About . . . Except for the area that we went into that was a meeting area, a presentation hall. It looked like they stored stuff in their – back in one area. I wasn’t really paying attention to what exactly it was, because I was anticipating the arrival of a Blue Avian.

David: Was it dark, or was it brightly lit like a typical hallway with lights?

Corey: It was well lit.

David: Okay.

Corey: Yeah. The Anshar delegation comes in.

David: To this meeting room?

Corey: Before we got into the meeting room, I greet Kaaree, and she’s more in a business mode, or she’s anticipating this meeting, but she’s nice and greeting me.

S03ep04 06

Corey: But, you know, we immediately walk the path back to where we’re going to have the meeting. And Gonzales knew where we were going. I didn’t. So we get back, and we walk. It looks like we’re walking . . . like this wall behind us. We walked as if the delegation is going to be facing this wall behind us. And Gonzales would be kind of like if you were standing right there in front of me, and I was standing about 12 feet away, maybe 15 feet away, facing him. And Kaaree and two others were up in the front, and there were several more with her in the delegation, but they were up to the front, and we were sitting there waiting for Raw-Tear-Eir to appear, and to our shock, a Triangle-Headed Being appeared.

David: This is the one that didn’t even talk . . .

Corey: Right.

David: . . . when you met with him.

Corey: Right.

David: Yeah.

Corey: Yeah, it was completely silent.

David: He seemed like the most advanced out of all of them, right?

Corey: Maybe. I don’t know, but it never communicated with me the first time or this time.

David: Right.

Corey: So it was the most bizarre thing. I’m sitting there looking across . . . We’re watching back and forth. It’s completely silent.

Triangle

Corey: The Triangle-Head Being, as I described before, was 10-feet, 11-feet tall.

David: Gosh.

Corey: And its head was as wide as its shoulders, if not just a little bit wider. READ MORE

Resonance in the Binary System Cycle


 

Beetlejuice Lies & the Astronomy of 666

by Alex Putney for Human-Resonance.org
April 3, 2016 – Updated April 26, 2016

The timing of cosmic events involving the prophecied appearance of the brown dwarf binary companion of our sun is an astronomical riddle that can only be solved by direct observations of the object by infrared telescopes.

In 2011, the Vatican completed installation of a pair of infrared telescopes for ‘Project Lucifer’ at the large observatory on Mt. Graham, Arizona, secretly tasked with tracking the position of the brown dwarf solar companion. Critical observations of dramatic stellar activity occurring in the Orion constellation have also been kept from the general public.

Supercomputer models of our binary solar system generated using these IR stellar observations of the brown dwarf companion star and the red supergiant Betelgeuse have provided high-probability dates for the impact of a supernova from the Orion constellation. This major event threatens to reignite the extinguished corona of the brown dwarf to become a red dwarf star.

The astronomical indicators of such a terrifying event have been restricted from public access, with just one scientific study and one mainstream newsmedia article reported in 2009 documenting the extremely rapid contraction of the red giant star Betelgeuse while downplaying the probability of imminent collapse and supernova.

Preventive measures were taken decades ago by CIA scriptwriters to produce big-budget Hollywood films for mass mind-programming via transmission of subliminal messages. The most obvious example of this mental manipulation relevant to our subject is the popular 1988 Hollywood film Beetlejuice, produced to deride the science revealing the imminent Betelgeuse supernova in the constellation of Orion.

 

Notice the film title includes three sets of standing waves on the top and bottom of the logo. The name of the film and its main character, ‘Beetlejuice’ (a zombie raised from the dead, played by Michael Keaton) is an obvious distortion of the stellar name ‘Betelgeuse’ –but why?

 

In both the ‘tv commercial’ and ‘graveyard’ scenes, the zombie character stands below a Vegas-style billboard reading ‘Betelgeuse’. This is not the name of the main character, but the name of a red giant star.

 

The character’s actual name –‘Beetlejuice’– is stated three times to call on the undead entity. This serves to fix the name in the minds of the audience, which is a mispronunciation of the name for the star, purposefully confusing the actual name. The dead persona of ‘Beetlejuice’ subliminally informs the audience that the star Betelgeuse is dead!

The psy-op film Beetlejuice actually makes direct reference to the shrinking action of the red giant star Betelgeuse in one scene where the character Beetlejuice experiences the sudden shrinking of his own head, after swapping out his service ticket starting with a string of 9s:

 

The possibility of imminent stellar collapse was thoroughly addressed in the article ‘Betelgeuse & the Red Dawn’, published by this author in August of 2009. ‘Imminent’ in stellar terms refers to the likelihood of the star going supernova in the next 20 years or so. More recent data on the progressive collapse of Betelgeuse has not been forthcoming from academic circles, in a concerted effort to hide these significant facts and implications from the general public.

In addition, vague disinformation articles were widely disseminated online to dismiss the reality and significance of the imminent stellar collapse of Betelgeuse.

Notice how the author refuses to directly reference his sources. By referring offhand to “An anonymous poster there says he has heard that the star Betelgeuse is about to go supernova, maybe as soon as a few weeks.” The disinfo author cleverly avoids mentioning the article by this author and published at Human-Resonance.org that brought up the main subject of his uninformed rant.

Accurate astronomical details concerning the long elliptical orbital cycle of the brown dwarf solar companion were first published by extraterrestrial contactee Eduard “Billy” Meier in 1986. A more precise calculation of the binary solar cycle was realized when considering the mathematical significance of the 11-year solar maximum cycle as reverberations of the regular passing of the brown dwarf companion.

Applying the concept of resonance to binary system dynamics, numerical calculations support the likelihood of a 36,666.66 year binary solar cycle, involving the reignition of the brown dwarf companion sun as a red dwarf. This unprecedented event will likely induce the Magnetic Reversal of our solar system resulting in the enhanced luminosity of twin suns described by indigenous wisdom as the change of the worlds.

The repetition of 6s in the binary cycle figure of 36,666.66 years reflects the binary operation of the Gravity Motor invented by Nikola Tesla, and reveals the nature of the famous Tesla quote on “the magnificence of 3s, 6s, and 9s.” This hidden connection is also encrypted in the numerical designation of 4666 given to the series of psychic readings given by the Sleeping Prophet Edgar Cayce.

The resonant magnificence of 3s and 6s is also reflected in the negative aspect by the Satanic obsession with the number 666, and the closely related Masonic obsession with 33rd degree, etc… These coded numbers have real-world applications to the astronomical cycles of our planet that have become obscured by false associations with evil forces that are so often repeated in mainstream drivel.

Binary star system dynamics mirror the essential electron/proton duality of all matter, and is replicated by the rotary action of Tesla’s double-drum Gravity Motor, later named the Rotating Field Amplifier (or RFA).

These binary system dynamics may also reflect the numerical relationships marking the closing of one cycle and the commencing of another. Consider the elapse of the Mayan Baktun calendar cycle on the solstice date of December 21, 2012.

A full 3 years has since elapsed from December 21, 2012 to December 21, 2015, a significant date marked by the solstice alignment of the majority of planets in our solar system with the position of the brown dwarf binary twin of our sun, now in the constellation of Leo. How does this 3-year period relate to the full binary cycle?

 

The 11-year solar cycle elapses 3,333.33 times during each binary cycle of 36,666.66 years. One third of the 11-year solar cycle is 3.66 years. The upcoming 3.66-year mark, counting from December 21, 2012, lands on August 21, 2016. Perhaps this date will bring the dramatic astronomical changes that have been spoken of by spiritually knowledgeable groups for thousands of years prior.

The cosmic timing of the Great Purification, as prophecied since ancient times by the indigenous Hopi, Apache and Maya Elders will soon unfold according to the observable cycle of our binary solar system, despite the false pretenses and omissions of government astronomers.

The accumulated karma of the closing cycle of Pisces will soon be burned off by the dramatic commencing of the Age of Aquarius, with two suns illuminating the Red Dawn of the Forever Cycle.

PITIFUL CHIEFS ~ Mohawk Nation News


Note: This was sent to me by an elder with the royal family, it’s the same covert template used to control and subjugate indigenous peoples worldwide, including the Kanaka Maoli aka native Hawaiian’s.

Please post & distribute.

MNN. Apr. 21, 2016. Our communities are privately owned by corporations called band and tribal councils. These corpo chiefs are created by the occupiers. The bankers are the shareholders of every municipality in the Corporation of CANADA, including INDIAN reserves. The band/tribal council’s job is to provide ever growing dividends for the shareholders of the corporation called the “Mohawk Council of Kahnawake Inc.”

Oswego/Six Nations [Caledonia] 8 years ago.

For a “finder’s fee” the chief’s job is to sign off all our assets on great turtle island to the corporation as collateral for their private investments.Check out some of the characteristics of psychopathic behaviors of the corpo band/tribal councils.sitting bull stolen land

  1. Callous unconcern for the people. They do secret projects without telling us while liquidating our assets.
  1. No meaningful relationship with their people. They watch us and report our weaknesses to their corporate masters. They even sit in our longhouses with us. The super “Iroquois Caucus Inc.” is created to impersonate the rotin’shonni/Iroquois Confederacy and usurp our inherent powers.
  1. No regard for our security. They open the doors to taxation, confiscation, imprisonment and violence against us. They help law enforcement to plan how to attack and threaten us. They pit families against each other.
  1. Lie and con. Their propagandists spread disinformation about us by infiltration. They report their critics. rabbit hole
  1. Abuse our rights. They open the door for many non-onkwe’hon:weh entities to enter our communities to operate businesses abusing our collective rights.
  1. No guilt. Outside systems are brought in like courts, police, armies, law and order and “low level warfare”. Cheap labor is created for their sweat shops, with long hours and no benefits. We are kept in fear of harassment, loss of our children, jobs, houses, benefits and services.
  1. Steal identity. They don’t like being called “sell outs”. They call themselves a “nation” or a “chief”. These predators imitate us to steal our cultural infrastructure and identity. trudeaus syrian migrants

Our mother and we are going to take back great turtle island by following the original instructions.

The corporate INDIANS owe their soul to the company store. They are not our leaders, even though they prance around in ribbon shirts with corporate logos.

As Tennessee Ernie Ford pointed out in his song “Sixteen Tons”: “If you see me coming, better step aside. A lot of men didn’t and a lot of men died. One fist of iron, the other of steel. If the right one don’t get you, then the left one will. You load 16 tons, what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt. Saint Peter don’t call me, cause I can’t go. I owe my soul to the company store”.

Star Knowledge The Orion Belt Reality and the Stone Builders message


Great submission, thanks for the link DP!

012bpyramids2banunnaki

When it is said all things are connected it is correct. The one consistent thing since Mother Earth was created and Creator made all things possible is that we have always had the Sun, the Moon, Stars and our Constellations. All ancient cultures and their faith, good or bad, have stemmed from and recognized the Star Nation and its ultimate hand in our existence, knowledge and enablement. Since ancient times, as humanity evolved, there have been secret societies in all races and cultures. Black, white, red and yellow – the four colors of man the four directional colors as in Lakota culture. All knew this common truth spanning Mother Earth. In Tetuwan Lakota culture the framework of our Inipi lodge (called sweat lodge by some) lays out the Constellations, the Star Nation and our paths to our Father Creator as we commune with our Father Creator, our ancestors and spirit world, as we return to the womb of Mother Earth to pray for guidance, strength, healing and enlightenment. We native peoples in ancient times were very close to Mother Earth and Creator and knew all good things came from the Suns rays in balance. And to maintain that balance the Sun needed the Moon, the Heavens and Stars. As above so below. It is a fact that what’s in the Heavens is in the Earth and what’s in the Earth is in the Heavens – a reality all ancient cultures recognized and preserved for future generations to acknowledge and respect.

The battle between good and evil has always been with us since our creation and a reality in all faiths, belief systems and laws of men recorded many times more than not in stone, Inyan in Tetuwan Lakota language. The Stone Peoples were first upon the earth to give us a firm foundation beneath the feet of man and beast and, as mankind developed we looked to the heavens for the answers of our existence and the Star Nation who came before us; who stands on guard to protect all mankind from destruction at our own hands. That knowledge has been preserved for us for countless centuries by the stone builders who have watched as great civilizations rose and fell all over Mother Earth, and as civilizations fell to gluttony and abuse of their fellow mankind and Mother Earth abundance. In many cases the only signs that remained of these prior empires were the skeletons of their stone creations, the Stone People who were here first and shall remain constant until the end.

Upon them – the Inyans – is told the stories of mankind’s successes and failures, good and bad behaviors and the messages of warning not to fall prey to our destruction and egos. Our forefathers, Free Masons, created a governmental structure called the Constitution to prevent those of us proud to be Americans from suffering submission and rule of one individual, party or ideological agenda.

The stone builders legacy in stone, their messages, and forethought is spread throughout America, the world and time, if only one would look around themselves at their amazing structures, obelisks, and even in the design of our money, to the very dome of the White House and our Statue of Liberty – all in alignment with Orion’s belt (the reminder of ancient belief of the goddess Isis, Star Woman, Morning Star, Blue Star Woman, Whope, White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman who watches over us all, no matter what culture) as a symbol of freedom and democracy for all mankind; and why our forefathers, fought and died to preserve this star knowledge for liberty and justice for all.

Winter solstice alignment is upon us, look up to the heavens, pray whatever your faith and give thanks (this current alignment on the Orion constellation has not occurred in 36000 years as we enter into the crossroads of our continued existence) for if we perish from our own allowance of corruption and dishonesty good has become bad, bad good, celebrated and admired now by mankind.

The celestial message painted on the ceiling of Grand Central Station in New York is in reverse as if being looked down upon from above. It is not painted as such by chance. My presidential choice, Ben Carson, said it perfectly to O’Reilly several nights ago “we must return to truth and honesty”. Carson is correct and would make a wonderful president – his whole life has been dedicated to healing mankind with his genius and ability given to him from Creator. Pope Francis’ message given at the same time is also correct, “we must if we are to survive need to eradicate corruption from our governments and leadership and secure woman’s place in the balance”. Once again Tennyson’s quote remains accurate:

We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

We must not yield to the evil and darkness of submission and terrorism of government agendas to destroy the legacy and message our forefathers preserved for America, its allies and mankind. The Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin was sent from Creator and the Star Nation via Whope, Star Woman, to be used as a peacemaker between nations.

The laws of man are as flawed as man himself. Creators laws and instructions are supreme above all others. White Buffalo Calf Pipe Womans’ message and instructions from Creator were precise when she brought this vessel of prayer to be used in communion with Creator and the Star Nation to us. Her teachings to us were the same message the stone builders have preserved right in the heart of New York city and Washington, DC, under our very noses.

The Sacred Pipe she gave to Our people
Will always be used as she did tell,
To keep it away from those of evil
To use it in the light of Wakantanka.
This we will strive to do.

Pilamayaye lo Wakantanka.

Navajo Water Supply is More Horrific than Flint, But No One Cares Because they’re Native American


native-water-worse-than-flint

The news out of Flint, Michigan brought the issue of contaminated drinking water into sharp focus, as it was revealed that officials at every level—local, state and federal—knew about lead-poisoned water for months but did nothing to address the problem.

Under state-run systems like utilities and roads, poorer communities are the last to receive attention from government plagued by inefficiencies and corrupt politicians. Perhaps no group knows this better than Native Americans, who have been victimized by government for centuries.

In the western U.S., water contamination has been a way of life for many tribes. The advocacy group Clean Up The Mines! describes the situation in Navajo country, which is far worse than in Flint, Michigan.

Since the 1950s, their water has been poisoned by uranium mining to fuel the nuclear industry and the making of atomic bombs for the U.S. military. Coal mining and coal-fired power plants have added to the mix. The latest assault on Navajo water was carried out by the massive toxic spills into the Animas and San Juan rivers when the EPA recklessly attempted to address the abandoned Gold King mine.

In 2015 the Gold King Mine spill was a wake-up call to address dangers of abandoned mines, but there are currently more than 15,000 toxic uranium mines that remain abandoned throughout the US,” said Charmaine White Face from the South Dakota based organization Defenders of the Black Hills. “For more than 50 years, many of these hazardous sites have been contaminating the land, air, water, and national monuments such as Mt. Rushmore and the Grand Canyon. Each one of these thousands of abandoned uranium mines is a potential Gold King mine disaster with the greater added threat of radioactive pollution. For the sake of our health, air, land, and water, we can’t let that happen.

There is no comprehensive law requiring cleanup of abandoned uranium mines, meaning corporations and government can walk away from them after exploiting their resources. 75 percent of abandoned uranium mines are on federal and Tribal lands.

Leona Morgan of Diné No Nukes points out one example: “The United Nuclear Corporation mill tailings spill of 1979, north of Churchrock, New Mexico left an immense amount of radioactive contamination that down-streamers, today, are currently receiving in their drinking water. A mostly-Navajo community in Sanders, Arizona has been exposed to twice the legal limit allowable for uranium through their tap.

Last week, Diné No Nukes participated in protests in Washington, D.C. to raise awareness of past and ongoing contamination of water supplies in the west, which disproportionately affects Indian country.

“The delegation is warning of the toxic legacy caused by more than 15,000 AUMs nationwide, extreme water contamination, surface strip coal mining and power plants burning coal-laced with radioactive particles, radioactive waste from oil well drilling in the Bakken Oil Range, mill tailings, waste storage, and renewed mining threats to sacred places such as Mt. Taylor in New Mexico and Red Butte in Arizona.”

These uranium mines cause radioactive contamination, and as a result all the residents in their vicinity are becoming nuclear radiation victims,” said Petuuche Gilbert of the Laguna Acoma Coalition for a Safe Environment, the Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment and Indigenous World Association. “New Mexico and the federal government have provided little funding for widespread clean up and only occasionally are old mines remediated.  The governments of New Mexico and the United States have a duty to clean up these radioactive mines and mills and, furthermore, to perform health studies to determine the effects of radioactive poisoning. The MASE and LACSE organizations oppose new uranium mining and demand legacy uranium mines to be cleaned up,” said Mr. Gilbert.

Politicians continue to take advantage of Native Americans, making deals with mining companies that would continue polluting their water supplies. Senator John McCain sneaked a resolution into the last defense bill which gave land to Resolution Copper. Their planned copper mining would poison waters that Apaches rely on and would desecrate the ceremonial grounds at Oak Flat.

While EPA and local officials have been forced to address the poisoned water in Flint, the contamination of Indian country water supplies continues. A bill called the Uranium Exploration and Mining Accountability Act, introduced by Arizona Congressman Raúl Grijalva, has languished in Congress for two years.

Manitoba First Nation declares state of emergency over suicide epidemic

CROSS LAKE, Man. — A remote Manitoba First Nation declared a state of emergency Wednesday after six suicides in the last two months and 140 attempts in the last two weeks alone.

Officials from the Pimicikamak Cree Nation, known as Cross Lake, say health workers on the northern reserve can no longer cope. Band councillor Donnie McKay said the nursing station is only staffed by two nurses overnight.

“They’re going 24 hours and they’re ready to drop.”

The community of 8,300 is traumatized and needs immediate help from the provincial and federal governments, McKay said. A meeting with Manitoba Health Minister Sharon Blady last month resulted in one mental-health worker being sent to the community for an eight-hour shift, he said.

“It’s ridiculous,” said McKay, who was called by distraught family members to a home a few days ago to talk a man out of taking his own life. “This wouldn’t happen anywhere else.”

Acting Chief Shirley Robinson said the reserve — about 500 kilometres north of Winnipeg near a Manitoba Hydro generating station — has an 80 per cent unemployment rate.

Frustrated residents occupied the generating station in 2013. They said their traditional lands are regularly transformed into a floodway and none of the promised economic development and employment programs has materialized.

Premier Greg Selinger personally apologized a year ago for the damage caused by the hydro development to Cross Lake’s traditional land, way of life and cultural identity.

After that apology, Robinson said there was a sense of hope, but that quickly vanished.

“There is lots of despair.”

Robinson’s 33-year-old cousin, a mother of three, was the sixth person last weekend alone to commit suicide. The community has been drawing on every resource it can to save lives, said Robinson.

“We’ve been using clergy. We’ve been using our local elders. We’ve been using our local nurses and doctors,” she said. “It’s been very difficult for everyone.”

Aboriginal Affairs Minister Eric Robinson said he has spoken with federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett and the two levels of government are doing what they can to assist the community. The province is waiting for specific requests from Cross Lake and will assist in any way it can, he said.

But the root causes of suicide — poverty, overcrowded housing and past abuse — need to be addressed, he said.

“Once those things are dealt with, it gives a sense of pride back to the indigenous people of this province,” said the minister, who is expected to travel to Cross Lake in the next few days.

A spokesperson for Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada said in an emailed statement the department is working with the band council and other front-line workers to “identify need and take immediate action in response.”

“Health Canada officials have reached out to the Chief of Cross Lake First Nation to offer assistance, and will work with the community to help address their mental-health needs in this difficult time,” Michelle Perron wrote.

The band is asking for at least six mental-health workers immediately, as well as for a child psychologist and family therapist. Council is also calling for after-hours counsellors and physicians.

In the long term, the reserve is asking for a hospital and recreational facilities for its youth.

Shirley Robinson said, with every minute that passes, people are worried about losing another loved one. There were two suicide attempts Tuesday, she said.

“It seems like we’re (keeping) a watchful eye — every minute, every hour. We don’t want this to happen anymore. The whole community is in grief.”

Ed. Note: IMO this story has a very darkside that connects the protests with the suicides, one that goes beyond unemployment, poverty, drugs, alcohol and the lack of a recreation center – which is simply appalling and egregiously socially irresponsible, especially when considering the profits generated from the hydro-electric plant. Is the community dealing with scalar weaponry, HAARP, targeted chemtrail toxins or some other form of mind control technology that’s driving people into suicidal depression? With the rate of suicides escalating at such an alarming rate, imo there’s something else going on.  Exactly what, has yet to be determined.

The following headline speaks volumes as to why the community is under attack, the Pimicikamak Cree Nation won. Yet, the victory has not been acknowledged or honored…

Monster North Shore surf uncovers hidden petroglyphs


February 13th 2016

NORTH SHORE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) – The waves at Pine Trees surf break constantly reshape the shoreline. And when really big surf comes in, the resulting erosion can briefly uncover Hawaiian petroglyphs.

That’s exactly what happened Thursday, and resident Avi Salvio was lucky enough to snap photos of two petroglyphs she spotted before they disappeared under sand again less than 24 hours later.

“They’re a really special thing to see, but they disappear really fast,” Salvio said.

Normally, you wouldn’t even see the lava rock on the beach. That’s because it’s typically covered with at least 10 feet of sand.

University of Hawaii anthropology professor James Bayman said petroglyphs were created by pecking one rock with another rock.

Because the carvings at Pine Trees are rarely seen, not much is known about them. But Bayman says they could easily date back several hundred years.

It’s been reported there are as many as 70 carvings chiseled into the lava rock there, mostly depicting human like figures and dogs.

Bayman says dogs were very meaningful in Hawaiian culture; their meat was reserved for men with a very high status.

In 42 years, Adam Salvio says he’s only seen the carvings four times.

“As you’re watching during the day the sand will cover them up and you try to sweep the sand off of them so they’ll stay up a little longer,” said Adam Salvio.

He always appreciates the rare glimpse of history.

“You’re realizing that people were here so long ago and you know they were at your same beach and you’re just reliving history again and you’re doing the same thing that they’ve done, playing in the same area. It’s pretty cool.”

Residents say there are more petroglyphs at Rock Piles and Ke Iki Beach.
