South American Vine Treats Neurogenerative Disorders and Is More Powerful Than Antidepressants


on 3 March, 2014 at 09:59

Banisteriopsis caapi, also known as ayahuasca, caapi or yaje, is a South American jungle vine used to prepare a decoction with a long history of entheogenic uses as a medicine and “plant teacher” among the indigenous peoples of the Amazon Rainforest. It has unique properties found to treat Parkinson’s disease and other neurogenerative disorders.

B.caapi contains harmine, harmaline, and tetrahydroharmine, all of which are both beta-carboline harmala alkaloids and Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). The MAOIs in B. caapi allow the primary psychoactive compound, DMT (which is introduced from the other primary ingredient in ayahausca, the Psychotria viridis plant), to be orally active.

The name ayahuasca means “vine of the soul”and the shamans of the indigenous western Amazonian tribes use the plant in religious and healing ceremonies. In addition to its hallucinogenic properties, caapi is used for its healing properties as a purgative, effectively cleansing the body of parasites and helping the digestive tract.

Harmala alkaloids are short term yet powerful MAOIs which render tryptamines orally active by temporarily reducing levels of monoamine oxidase in the body which otherwise rapidly destroys them. Their effects are more powerful and less toxic than pharmaceutical SSRIs since they do not lead to suicidal tendencies and other side effects which detrimentally affect human behavior.

The principal ayahuasca compounds have a common indole structure which, through several mechanisms, influences certain functions of the central nervous system (CNS). The relevant factor is the biochemical similarity of these compounds to the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-HT). The harmala alkaloids in ayahuasca, primarily harmine and tetrahydroharmine, reversibly inhibit the neuronal enzyme monoamine oxidase (MAO).

This allows DMT to be active when ingested orally. It also facilitates accumulation of biogenic amines, such as 5-HT, which are normally metabolized by monoamine oxidase enzymes. DMT is a naturally-occurring biochemical substance secreted by the human body in the pineal gland. It occurs in hundreds of plant species worldwide. It can produce very powerful visionary effects when smoked in its pure form or taken orally in Ayahuasca.

The Ayahuasca Experience 

People who have consumed ayahuasca report having spiritual revelations regarding their purpose on earth, the true nature of the universe as well as deep insight into how to be the best person they possibly can. This is viewed by many as a spiritual awakening and what is often described as a rebirth. In addition it is often reported that individuals can gain access to higher spiritual dimensions and make contact with various spiritual or extra dimensional beings who can act as guides or healers.

Wild cats including Jaguars looking for a high will seek out the roots of the caapi plant and gnaw on them until they start to hallucinate. In fact, some scientists believe that humans learned how to use the root by observing the jaguars hallucinate after consuming the plant.

It is incorrect, however, to characterize the Ayahuasca experience as merely an oral DMT experience activated by a beta carboline MAO inhibitor. The holistic processes at work are far more complex and it is unquestionably the ayahuasca vine which fuels the transformative power and profound teaching of the Ayahuasca experience.

It is nearly always said that people experience profound positive changes in their life subsequent to consuming ayahuasca and it is often viewed as one of the most effective tools of enlightenment. Vomiting can follow ayahuasca ingestion; this purging is considered by many shamans and experienced users of ayahuasca to be an essential part of the experience as it represents the release of negative energy and emotions built up over the course of one’s life. There are many reports of miraculous physical as well as emotional and spiritual healing resulting from the use of ayahuasca.

A Natural Healer of The Mind and Spirit

A study in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology found an additional basis to the existing claims of Banisteriopsis caapi stem extract for the treatment of Parkinsonism, including other neurodegenerative disorders.

At least 42 indigenous names for this preparation are known. It is remarkable and significant that at least 72 different indigenous tribes of Amazonia, however widely separated by distance, language, and cultural differences, all manifested a detailed common knowledge of ayahuasca and its use for medicinal and spiritual use.

Both the plant and the medicine prepared from it are called ‘ayahuasca’ in most of the Peruvian Amazon. However, many distinguish the ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) from the medicinal brew (ayahuasca combined with a companion plant such as chacruna).

Accessiblity and Legality

Ayahuasca has also stirred debate regarding intellectual property protection of traditional knowledge. In 1986 the US Patent and Trademarks Office allowed the granting of a patent on the ayahuasca vine B. Caapi. It allowed this patent based on the assumption that ayahuasca’s properties had not been previously described in writing. Several public interest groups, including the Coordinating Body of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon Basin (COICA) and the Coalition for Amazonian Peoples and Their Environment (Amazon Coalition) objected. In 1999 they brought a legal challenge to this patent which had granted a private US citizen “ownership” of the knowledge of a plant that is well-known and sacred to many indigenous peoples of the Amazon, and used by them in religious and healing ceremonies.

In the United States, caapi is not specifically regulated. In Australia, the harmala alkaloids are scheduled substances, including Harmine and harmaline, but the living vine, or other source plants are not in most states. On the State of Queensland as of March 2008 this distinction is now uncertain. In all states the dried herb may or may not be considered a scheduled substance, dependent on court rulings. In Canada, harmala is listed under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act as a schedule III substance. The vine is also considered a controlled substance as it contains harmaline which the law states anything containing a controlled substance will be treated the same.

Massive Deaths of Aboriginal Children in Canada Officially Admitted: Genocide Verdict and Kevin Annett’s Work Finally Vindicated


Historic Breaking News from The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS)

“Canada, the and the Vatican stand guilty as charged as disestablished criminal bodies” – International Common Law Court of Justice, Brussels

A Special Report from ITCCS Canada with Commentary by Kevin Annett

http://youtu.be/4xcUTiN1mAU

Vancouver, Canada:

Seventeen years after Rev. Kevin Annett publicly disclosed evidence that over 50,000 children died in Canada’s church-run “Indian residential schools”, Canadian governments have finally confirmed this genocidal mortality rate after releasing hitherto-concealed death records from the schools. (http://westcoastnativenews.com/tens-of-thousands-first-nation-children-died-in-residential-schools/)

Until this week, government and church officials have either denied or stayed silent about Rev. Annett’s documented estimate. But previously “segregated” statistics of the deaths of residential school children made public last Friday by different provinces indicate that “tens of thousands” of these children died in the facilities, which were operated primarily by the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada.

In British Columbia alone, government records indicate that nearly 5,000 children between the ages of four and nineteen died in the residential schools until 1956, although the schools continued in operation until 1996, putting the total death figure even higher. Rev. Annett’s research established that the high death rate of over 40% of the students was the result of deliberately infecting them with tuberculosis and denying the sick treatment. (www.hiddennolonger.com)

“This news officially confirms what our Court established in its lawful verdict of February 25, 2013” stated George Dufort of the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels today.

“Canada and its churches, the British Crown and the Vatican stand guilty as charged as disestablished criminal bodies and can no longer have any lawful or legitimate constitutional authority if the rule of law is to be followed”.

This week’s official admission of massive deaths in the Indian residential schools comes on the heels of shocking new evidence showing that a Vatican and Church of England child sacrifice cult known as the Ninth Circle operated at the same schools for over a century, including at the Mohawk residential school in Brantford, Ontario. (www.itccs.org, March 29, 2014)

Kevin Annett was reached at his home in Nanaimo, British Columbia today and provided the enclosed you tube commentary on the remarkable news.

“I always knew their lies would fall apart, and persistence would pay off” remarked Kevin.

“But I’m thinking now of all my friends who died after struggling to see this day come about, like Bingo Dawson, Billie Combes, Ricky Lavallee and Harry Wilson – some of the eyewitnesses to the Canadian Holocaust who went public at great personal risk. This is their victory, as it belongs to all the missing children. But it will only mean something if Canadians act on this final proof of Genocide by church and state to enforce the verdict and arrest warrants of the Common Law court.

“Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Queen Elizabeth, Joseph Ratzinger and twenty seven other officials belong behind bars. And more than that, it’s now time to establish a constitutional Republic in Canada that is free and independent of the British Crown and the legacies of Vatican-sponsored Genocide”.

Details of the plans to act upon this recent acknowledgement are discussed in Kevin Annett’s attached you tube commentary.

Hair Is An Extension Of The Nervous System


Ua Mau Ke Ea, Sovereignty Endures: An Overview of the Political and Legal History of the Hawaiian Islands by David Keanu Sai (review)


 

 

From: The Contemporary Pacific
Volume 25, Number 1, Spring 2013
pp. 210-212 | 10.1353/cp.2013.0011

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

David Keanu Sai’s recent Ua Mau Ke Ea: Sovereignty Endures argues that the United States has been illegally occupying Hawai’i since 1898. Sai contends that, though the United States has treated Hawai’i as the fiftieth state, the Hawaiian Islands, having been recognized as an independent state in 1843 by Britain and France and by a host of other countries thereafter, never had a ratified treaty merging this island nation with the United States. The first text for high school and college students to address Hawai’i’s legal status under US occupation, Ua Mau Ke Ea, with its accompanying CD of documents and a documentary directed by Kau’i Sai-Dudoit, offers a trove of information regarding the US occupation of Hawai’i and asks students to reexamine the colonization rubric as it has been applied to Hawai’i, affirming that despite the United States’ illegal occupation, Hawai’i’s sovereignty endures.

 

With an implicit awareness that young minds are key to ending the US occupation, Sai’s work demonstrates how Hawaiian history has shifted in recent years toward more precise discourse on the US occupation. In the past decade, the discourse has evolved from Noenoe Silva’s Aloha Betrayed (2004), which described Hawai’i as a “(neo) colonial state” under “continued occupation . . . by the United States” (2004, 9), to Tom Coffman’s revised edition of Nation Within: The History of the American Occupation of Hawai’i (2009), which acknowledged “a growing body of historical work by a new generation of Native Hawaiian scholars” writing about the US occupation of Hawai’i (2009, xvi). Sai is the latest in this academic and popular trend, one of the emerging Native Hawaiian voices contributing to this shift from “colonization” and “annexation” to “occupation” as the legal and political term to describe Hawai’i.

 

Sai distinguishes colonization from occupation under international law, noting, “Colonization/decolonization is a matter that concerns the internal laws of the colonizing State and presumes the colony is not sovereign, while occupation/de-occupation is a matter of international law relating to already existing sovereign States” (115). Although Hawai’i has been occupied for over a century, Sai contends that the United States has treated these islands as colonized territory and that this “colonial treatment is evidence of the violation” of international law (117).

 

While Sai’s discussion of colonization and occupation is significant, Ua Mau Ke Ea centers on the United States’ actions toward the Hawaiian Islands in the 1890s. Unfortunately, Sai’s argument, with its focus on the Lili’uokalani Assignment and the Agreement of Restitution, ventures into legal theory that contradicts some aspects of the book’s overarching claims about the United States’ illegal occupation.

 

Written under duress, the Lili’uokalani Assignment was signed on 17 January 1893, hours after a band of conspirators had declared themselves the Provisional Government, and one day after 162 US sailors disembarked from the uss Boston and occupied Honolulu, Hawai’i’s capital. In this assignment, Queen Lili’uokalani wrote, “to avoid collision of armed forces, and perhaps loss of life, I do this under protest, and impelled by said force, yield my authority until such time as the Government of the United States shall, upon the facts being presented to it, undo the action of its representatives and reinstate me in the authority which I claim as the constitutional sovereign of the Hawaiian islands” (73-74). Because this document yielded authority to the US government, Sai describes this as an assignment of executive power.

 

The second part of Sai’s argument about Hawai’i’s enduring sovereignty rests in his contention that the 18 December 1893 Agreement of Restitution, which held the weight of a treaty, was never fully enacted. Sai notes, “The Queen’s declaration represented the final act of negotiation and settlement of the 16 January 1893 dispute that arose between the United States and the Hawaiian Kingdom. All that remained for the President, as the assignee of executive power, was to administer Hawaiian Kingdom law, restore the Hawaiian Kingdom government and return the power to the Queen, whereupon the Queen was to grant amnesty, after the criminal convictions of the insurgents, and assume…

BIG FOOT MESSAGE Shared by Standing Elk

 

BIGFOOT Cultivates Purity, Innocence and Truth

 

Sasquatchitan. I am Chief of Sasquatchi People. You may think we are hairy and have big feet. Really this is not so.

 

I come to speak to you because soon, our people will come to you again. The reason we had to leave the community of human beings is because of their loss of this innocence, truth, and purity. For our race and the Laws of our race are based upon these three.

 

All true Star Nations practice innocence, truth and purity.

 

Our people did not want to leave the human beings. This is why you have seen us here and there. Your grandfathers and grandmothers who have grown through what you call “years” usually are those who have seen us, because the Earth Walk teaches innocence, truth, and purity. This is why the Elders are the Spiritual leaders.

 

Our people are ready to come to the human beings again, to live with you and to teach you many things.

 

First, human beings must purify. For when we see you, we see things that are very horrifying to us because we have spiritual sight. You must cleanse the cloud of bad spirits that surrounds you, the negativity, unholy feelings, and unwise thoughts. Not only do these dark clouds prevent our people from having relationship to you, it prevents you from having relationship with Spirit and having relationship with Mother Earth.

 

We will share some practices now that will help you.

 

First, within the Sacred Elements, Earth, Water, Fire, and Air, there is the power for your cleansing.

 

If you were to bury yourself in Earth and stay there for a day, you would be clean.

 

If you were to go and stay with Brother Waterfall for a day, you would be clean.

 

If you would stay under the Desert Sun for a day, you would be clean.

 

If you would stand in the Strong Winds of the Mountain People for one day, you would be clean.

 

The Elemental Peoples love human beings. They will do service at any time for you. Take Tobacco to them. Pray for their Nation and they will come to you with hearts overflowing.

 

Then, honor their gift to you by changing the way you think, feeling with true heart, praying for renewal with Creator and honoring Mother Earth with each footstep.

 

The way of cleansing for human beings is right outside your door.

 

Mother Earth and her peoples are glorious beings of Universe!

 

Learn to respect us!

 

You look to the skies for miracles, the miracles are here!

 

Open your eyes and see!

 

Mother Earth is a great teacher of Innocence. She is a great teacher of Truth. She is Purity embodied. Know your Mother! Most of you came from far away to be with her and to be with the Peoples of her Love.

 

We Sasquatchi are ready to join you in the community of Sacred Law, in True Heart. We will teach you how to step through those Portals of Time. We will teach you how to remember who you are, your starry intelligence and wisdom. We will help you learn how to be in balance with the Sacred World around you.

 

Our Peoples have adopted this Universal Law and its sign as the symbol of Our coming and as the energy of our Teachings. And so, you may call us through these ways.

 

First, we will check you out. We will watch you. We will see if you are ready.

 

Can you see the little signs? For the biggest teachings are little things. We will be watching to see. For, when you can respect that little pebble, you can respect us. You can respect who you are.

 

Purity. Go out to the Sacred Waters.

 

Innocence. Remember when you were very young and be that way.

 

Truth. Stop trying so hard to lie.

 

The Elemental Brothers and Sisters are of these Essences. They are Purity in form. They are single. They are True. They are unpolluted, they understand that they are the Keepers of Life.

 

Learn from Soil and Stone.

 

Learn from River and Ocean.

 

Learn from Fire and Lightning.

 

Learn from Wind and Breath.

 

They are so close to you that you cannot remember who they are. And yet, not one action that you take, could you do without them.

 

These Sacred Element Peoples will restore you.

 

And then we, Sasquatchi, will come and teach you the community ways of being in balance with Sacred Mother. Then your lifeline will be unbroken as ours has been from the beginning.

Indigenous Vow: We’ll Be ‘Dead Or In Prison Before We Allow’ Keystone Pipeline

On February 27, Oglala Lakota and American Indian Movement activists joined in a four-directions walk to commemorate Liberation Day, an event to mark the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. As they do each year, four groups gather to the north, south, east and west and then walk eight miles until converging on top of Wounded Knee, where they honor the fallen warriors and the tribe’s rich history of resistance.

“It is an acknowledgement of the resiliency of who we are as a people,” explains Andrew Iron Shell, an organizer and activist of the Sicangu Lakota Nation. “It gives permission and courage for our up-and-coming generations to face the challenges of their time.”

The history of the occupation began with a massacre more than 100 years ago. On a cold day in December 1890, the United States army killed 300 Lakota men, women and children in a massive shoot out after a member of the First Nations refused to give up his arms. It marked the first bloodshed on Wounded Knee – although there had been many massacres of First Nations people by the colonialists before it. The event was also considered the end of the Indian Wars.

Eighty-three years later, on Feb. 27, 1973, about 200 Lakota members took siege of the town of Wounded Knee. Reclaiming a location that was written in the history books as a place of defeat, the Lakota stood their ground. They were there in protest of a failed attempt at impeaching the tribal president at the time, Richard Wilson, who was known to be corrupt and abusive. Initially a protest against the tribal government, the occupation took a turn when U.S. police forces arrived. The protestors switched the occupation’s focus to the United States’ frequent violation of treaties.

The armed warriors maintained control over the town for 71 days while the FBI encircled them. At the final standoff, two warriors were killed, about 12 people were wounded and over 400 were arrested. The Oglala were able to harness national attention through their occupation, using the spotlight to question the United States’ treatment of First Nations people.

As history passed, later generations rarely heard about the occupation of Wounded Knee — or about first nation people at all. This skewed national memory should be unsurprising: When you have a society and a nation built upon the subjugation of people of color, you can expect nothing more than the constant erasing of certain histories.

Ongoing genocide

I recently visited Prisoner of War Camp 344, also known as the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. It wasn’t my first time in the sovereign Oglala Sioux Nation, but it was my first time joining in the ceremonies celebrating the 41st annual Liberation Day to remember the 1890 reoccupation of Wounded Knee.

The vibrant American Indian Movement flags waving in the harsh South Dakota winter wind reminded me of the old black and white photos I used to see in my history books. The Lakota would not disappear without a fight, regardless of what the United States’ intentions were. Children walked alongside elders who had taken part in the occupation, showing clearly the group’s intergenerational wisdom. These are children who are stripped of learning their people’s history in schools, but instead learn it through stories and dances. They are children who live in a sovereign nation that contains two of the poorest counties in the United States and who recognize the threats their families face every day.

One of these threats come from the so-called town of White Clay, Neb., where visitors can witness the way violence against the First Nations people has changed — but not disappeared — over the generations. Consisting of only 12 people and four liquor stores, White Clay was once part of a 50-square-mile buffer that prevented alcohol from entering the reservation. In 1904, President Roosevelt signed an executive order that removed 49 of those square miles. Since then, the town’s economy has been driven by the $4 million in alcohol sales to the people of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. There is no legal place to drink in or around White Clay: Alcohol containers can’t be opened on the property of the distributor, it’s prohibited to drink in the street, and the reservation is dry territory. Yet, somehow, the town of 12 people manages to keep four liquor stores open. Barely two miles from the reservation’s epicenter, and less than 200 feet from the dry reservation line, the town perpetrates a type of violence that is, on the reservation, known as liquid genocide.

The reason for this name becomes apparent when one examines the teenage suicide rate on the reservation, which is 150 percent higher than the U.S. national average for this age group. Many attribute this death rate to the sale of alcohol to minors, which White Clay store owners are known to do. The liquor stores also break the law by selling to intoxicated people, and by trading alcohol for pornography, sexual favors — including from minors — and welfare checks. The effects of free-flowing alcohol are devastating: On the reservation, 90 percent of all court cases are related to alcohol use.

Kate, a Tokala warrior, believes that alcoholism is part of a larger problem of the disappearance of indigenous culture. For her, the only way to live in the geographical region of Pine Ridge is the indigenous way. “We are the ones on the back roads, still chopping wood. We are living the way we used to live,” she said. “It’s not hardship; it’s the way it’s supposed to be.”

Kate and many others know that alcohol was introduced to her people as a means to steal from them. Living deeply connected to the history of their nation, they believe that if they shake free of the colonized mindset, alcohol wouldn’t even be an issue.

Threats to the land

In addition to trying to close down White Clay, the Oglala Lakota Nation is actively fighting the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. This 1,700-mile pipeline, which would carry 830,000 barrels of crude oil each day from western Canada through South Dakota en route to Texas. At two points it would even intersect with a pipeline that serves as a main water source for the Sioux Nation, affecting all of the Pine Ridge reservation as well as the nearby Rosebud reservation.

Advocates for the pipeline argue the pipeline is the safest way to transport crude oil. TransCanada, the company in charge of the pipeline, predicted that the first Keystone pipeline, which runs from Alberta to Illinois, would spill once every seven years. During its first year in operation, it spilled 12 times. The Lakota, along with other First Nations, have vowed to use direct action to stop construction of the pipeline.

For a nation whose land and sovereignty has been threatened for hundreds of years by U.S. politics, the Keystone XL pipeline is part of a long history of threats to the Lakota Nation – and to the earth itself.

“They want to get rid of the Lakota, the protectors of the earth,” said Olowan Martinez, an organizer in the Lakota community. “But what they don’t know is when they get rid of the Lakota, the earth isn’t too far behind. Our people believe the Lakota is the earth.”

President Obama is scheduled to be make a final decision on the pipeline by the middle of 2014. While the Lakota are hoping he will not approve the project, they are also getting ready to stand up and fight. During the Liberation Day celebrations, the Lakota’s dances and stories relayed messages about sacred water and Mother Earth. The tribe has also united with other First Nations to organize a three-day direct action training called Moccasins on the Ground, which was designed to prepare people to act if the pipeline is approved.

“Dead or in prison before we allow the Keystone XL pipeline to pass,” the Lakota warriors, many mounted atop horses, repeated during the Liberation Day celebration. Their words carried the weight of 521 years, and counting, of lived resistance.

Hopi Elders Statement: This is THE Hour


 

You have been telling people that this is the eleventh hour.  

                                                                        Now you must go back and tell people that this is the hour!                                                                                 

And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your Garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to yourself.
And not look outside of yourself for a leader.
This could be a good time!
There is a river flowing very fast.
It is so great and fast that there are those who will be afraid.
They will hold on to the shore.
They will feel that they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say that we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time we are to take nothing personally, least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones that we have been waiting for.

The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation

Brazil: Munduruku People Kick Miners Off Indigenous Territory, Seize Equipment


by Larissa Saud / Terra Magazine
Translated from Portuguese by Thomas Walker / Earth First! Newswire

 

Threatened by Death, Muduruku Expel Miners from their territories, West of Para.

Under threat of death, Muduruku expel miners from their territories, west of Para.

 

Night had hardly arrived when indigenous Munduruku people landed on the bank of a mine on Tropas River, a tributary of Tapajós river, in a region west of Pará.  From the five speedboats, all of them full, came warriors and children, all with one objective: to drive out illegal miners from Munduruku land.

 

Right at the entrance of the shed, the indigenous encountered two of the twelve miners present.  Painted for war, the Munduruku held strong.

 

“You have ten minutes to get out.  Get your things, go away, and don’t come back.  This is the land of the Munduruku,” ordered Paigomuyatpu, chief of the warriors, while the miners were packing their bags and preparing to abandon the area.

 

 

 

According to the workers in the mine, the four pairs of dredges, used for the extraction of gold, belonged to Alexandre Martins.

 

Known as Tubaína, Martins is also owner of at least two more mines in the region, and left the site three days before the operation, exactly when the Munduruku started the survey in the Tapajós basin.

 

“He (Tubaína) said that he was going there to another of his posts. He isn’t there, and he isn’t here.  No one knows,” confirmed Mara Almeida, who cooked in the posts for the miners in Tubaína.  The action came after numerous complaints filed with government agencies.  Ozimar Dace, Munduruku member of the movement and reporter of the operation, said that the indigenous have already tried to kick out the pariwat (who are not indigenous) by way of the Brazilian Environmental Institute (Ibama), Institute Chico Mendes of Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio), and National Foundation of the Indigenous (Funai).

 

“The people decided that these authorities would never give results to us.  They are never going to do this so that we can live in peace.  They gave the deadline for when they would give results, but this never happened.  So, for these reasons, we decided to resolve the issue by our own account.”

 

The illegal exploration of the mine inside the indigenous land of the Munduruku is not new.  Accounts trace the start of these activities to the 1980s.  One story of threats, agreements with a small group of leaders, and exploitation of indigenous labor weave a web that does not benefit the majority of people.

 

According to local communities, the miners have caused various problems in the indigenous lands due to uncontrolled exploitation.  Pollution of the river, lack of fish, misunderstandings, and threats are the main reasons cited for the indigenous actions.  For these reasons, the indigenous were “expelling miners and taking their machines,” explains Paigomuyatpu, chief of the Munduruku warriors.

 

“The miners already made too many damages in our territory.  We are evicting problems, sickness, and many other things that are happening.  We are evicting this for our future generation,” he added.

 

The surveillance started on January 15, lasted almost twenty days, and passed through various tributaries of the Tapajós river basin, such as Tropas river, Kaburuá river, Kadiriri river, and Kabitutu river.  In all, the Munduruku confiscated twelve dredges.  They will remain in the villages for a month while the indigenous decide what they will do.

 

“In relation to the mines, they will stay put.  After a month passes and we decide what we are going to do with machines: if we are going to do projects to benefit the communities in the area where there are already machines.  But we need alternative projects to generate funds for the community, like fish farming, flour production, nut extraction, copal and honey.  We need the support of FUNAI,” Paigomuyatpu said.

 

Pressed by the Munduruku, the FUNAI supported the autonomous action of the indigenous, financing fuel for the boats.

 

“It was one of their demands, it came from pressure.  They wanted this to happen in any form they could.  We think that taking their own initiative is even better, so that they can understand themselves with their relatives and decide that they are not going to permit the entry of the miners anymore,” commented Julian Araujo, from the coordination of the FUNAI of Itaituba.

 

According to Juliana, since she arrived in the region in 2010, FUNAI has received complaints from the Munduruku on illegal mining on indigenous land.  In October of last year, the complaints were reiterated and forwarded to ICMBio and the Federal Police.  In 2012, an operation against the miners had only a provisional effect because the miners returned.  Because of this, it was suggested that FUNAI work towards awareness within the manage plant.

 

“It’s not enough to just do the operation and afterwards other indigenous people authorize the entrance of miners.  We resolved to take a little more care with this.  As much as ICMBio, we have personal difficulties.  There is one person that is responsible for a number of units when we are monitoring [the area], so we will try calling volunteers from other places because the local volunteers end up being targeted by the miners.”

 

The climate is tense in the region.  Communicating by radio, the leaders discovered that they are being followed.  There is a list with at least five names of indigenous leaders marked for death.  The author of the threats could be Tubaína.  According to a Munduruku, he commands a group of gunmen with automatic weapons.

 

“Tubaína is feared in the region and walks with a rifle in his right hand through the village.  No one says anything.  I said, ‘Hey, inside indigenous territory, only the Federal Police and FUNAI are authorized to be armed,’” Valmar Kaba related.  Beyond the leaders, Tubaína has allegedly threatened the chief of the village surveillance station, Oswaldo Waro, and his son, Joao Waro.  In the last nineteen days, the two closed the village airstrip with sticks and stones in order to make sure that the miners leave with the seized machines.

“Tubaína passed the radio to the chief and said that when Oswaldo went to work, in the Bananal, Tubaína would catch him and his kid,” said Leuza Kaba, an indigenous woman.  One of the workers expelled by the Mundruku, known as Shorty, informed that the miners of Humaita and from 180 kilometers across the Tranamazonica (Trans Amazon Highway) would be planning to go to Tapajós and to “work things out” with the indigenous people.  Shorty did not reveal his true name.  He is frank and soft-spoken.  At a bar table, Shorty said that he became a miner 14 years ago, when his partner left him.

 

“I’ve only been here in the region for six years.  The people tell a lot of lies about the miners.  They talk a lot about Tubaína, but he is a good person and helps everybody,” he said.

 

He left saying that he is still going to return to get the gold from the indigenous area.  Some acquaintances said that Shorty got out of prison two months ago.  He was imprisoned for killing a man with a knife in a mining village near Caton, within the indigenous area.

 

“And he killed another with a .20 bullet, right here, on this road,” said one of his acquaintances.  The reporter was not able to contact Tubaína.  On Friday, (January 31, 2014), indigenous leaders in the Jacareacanga delegation registered a police report denouncing the threats of the mine owner and reported the situation to federal prosecutors.

In a letter, the indigenous say they do not have fear of death and that they will continue fighting for their rights.

 

Carta VI—Letter of the Munduruku Ipereg Ayu Movement

 

We, chiefs, leaders, and warriors, came across to greet you, ladies and gentlemen—those who support our movement Munduruku Ipereg Ayu.

 

We, warriors, did our surveillance of our territory.  We took out and expelled the invading miners from our territory and we seized their machines.  Now they are threatening us with death, but we are not intimidated.

 

This is the first step.  We are going to defend our territory, our river, our forest, our riches, and our people until the end.  This is our word. 

 

We finish this letter with much peace and friendship.  Sawe! Sawe! Sawe! 

 

            Sincerely,

 

            Munduruku Apereg Ayu Movement

Anti-bike laws outrage family of Indigenous prisoner


A Queensland woman claims her husband has been unfairly treated in jail because of his past association with a motorcycle club.

NITV News
UPDATED 6:14 PM – 24 Dec 2013

Family and friends of Kevin Hill last night gathered outside the Queensland Corrective Services Department offices in Brisbane, to protest the way he was being treated in prison.

The Queensland Government, under new “anti-bikie laws”, moved motorcycle club members to the Woodford Correction Centre about 100 kilometres north of Brisbane.

They have been separated and placed into solitary confinement.

Kevin Hill was jailed for assault and sent back to jail for breaching parole.

But Grace Hill said her husband had been moved to solitary at Woodford because of his past connections with bike club The Bandidos.

“He was a model prisoner; he used to train guide dogs and do the Aboriginal paintings for Fred Hollows Foundation,” she said.

“It’s wrong.”

“Why should he be put under [the new anti-bikie laws] and do time for something he hasn’t done?”

Gabriel Buckley, President of the Queensland Liberal Democrats political party and a candidate at the upcoming Redcliffe by-election, said several civil liberties groups were sprouting up in Queensland in response to the state government’s law-and-order policies.

Mr Buckley, who recently organised a protest in Brisbane which attracted 2000 people, said prisoners with bike-club links were now doing it tough.

“People are certainly being subject to a lot harsher treatment,” he said.

“Kevin is a prime example.”

NITV News asked Corrective Services Queensland if Kevin Hill was placed in solitary confinement because he was formerly associated with a bike club.

In a statement, the department said:”Queensland Corrective Services is not in a position to provide specific information about the management of individual prisoners.”

Bhutan – The World’s First 100% Organic Nation


Bhutan – The World’s First 100% Organic Nation Wednesday, February 20, 2013 The tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan drew international attention a few years back for saying gross national happiness should trump gross domestic product when measuring a nation’s progress.
If you’re going to prioritize happiness, the Bhutanese thinking goes, you’d better include the environment and spiritual and mental well-being in your calculations. (Not everyone in Bhutan is happy, and many leave as refugees, as Human Rights Watch and others have noted.)
But Bhutan, which has only 700,000 people — most of whom are farmers — has another shot at international fame if it can make good on a recent pledge to become the first country in the world to convert to a 100 percent organic agricultural system.
Last month at the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development, Prime Minister Jigmi Thinley said his government is developing a National Organic Policy because the country’s farmers are increasingly convinced that “by working in harmony with nature, they can help sustain the flow of nature’s bounties.” Going all-out organic is a lofty goal for any country given that many farmers — and poor farmers in particular — covet chemical fertilizers and pesticides to enrich their soil, boost production and keep diseases and pests at bay.
But Andre Leu, an Australian adviser to the Bhutanese government and the president of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements, says it’s very doable. “I don’t think it’s going to be that difficult given that the majority of the agricultural land is already organic by default,” Leu tells The Salt. Indeed, the synthetic chemicals and fertilizers that are used so widely in countries like the U.S. are only available and affordable to a few of Bhutan’s farmers who are widely dispersed across the rugged and mountainous terrain sandwiched between India and China. But very few of the organic-by-default farmers have been certified as such by third-party institutions. (Certified organic food, by the way, makes up less than 1 percent of the world’s calories, and is mostly available to wealthy consumers.)
According to the World Food Program, Bhutanese farmers mainly grow rice and corn, as well as some fruits and vegetables, including potatoes and oranges.
But as demand for food has grown in recent years, the country has been forced to import rice and other foods from India, and today Bhutan is a net food importer. One of the few products Bhutan exports to the U.S. is red rice; Lotus Foods sells it to chains like Whole Foods.
Bhutanese red rice is more nutritious and tastes nuttier than white rice, its boosters say, and is well-suited to pilaf, as Monica Bhide reported for NPR’s Kitchen Window earlier this year. The rice does not have organic certification, but Lotus Foods says it been grown without the use of pesticides or other chemical inputs for centuries.
The Ministry of Agriculture says the organic program, launched in 2007, is not just about protecting the environment. It will also train farmers in new methods that will help them grow more food and move the country closer to self-sufficiency. The ministry is now training extension workers in organic methods and giving farmers who go organic priority for government assistance.
Not everyone is so sure that a 100 percent organic Bhutan is a great idea. Leu says he’s found some resistance among researchers at the Ministry of Agriculture who’ve been trained in conventional farming techniques abroad. And an article last year in the Bhutan Observer notes that many farmers who grow export crops like apple, Mandarin orange, and potato already rely heavily on chemical fertilizers and could be reluctant to give them up.
Still, Leu is optimistic that Bhutan’s burgeoning organic agriculture research centers will eventually be able to come up with organic methods to boost yields and manage the problems of these crops. “All these problems are solvable, they just need a few more years of research to come up with some more effective solutions,” Leu says.Source: NBR

Mi’kmaq Warriors denied all rights in jail, two beaten

Updated Oct. 31, 2013Nineteen-year-old David Mazerolle of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society describes how Mi’kmaqs were denied all their rights in jail and placed in solitary confinement after police brutally attacked the anti-oil and gas drilling camp in Elsipogtog, New Brunswick.

A second Mi’kmaq Warrior, Mi’kmaq Warrior Chief Jason Augustine, said he was repeatedly kicked in the head by police while down and diagnosed with a concussion.

“I was kicked in the head three times when I was taken down,” Augustine told APTN. “I wasn’t resisting arrest, I had my hands behind my back, and this one RCMP started bashing my head in.”

David Mazerolle describes the treatment in the Moncton jail in this video. “I was one of the six that got left in there.”

“They left us in there with no blanket, no bed.”

“After we got split up and put in solitary confinement, my buddy Aaron, as he was being transferred, got beat up while he was in handcuffs.”

“They said we could talk to our lawyers, but none of us got to talk to our lawyers.”

“We were just constantly in that hole.”

The Mi’kmaq Warriors were denied toilet paper and toothpaste, and access to the phone and attorneys.

RCMP and snipers in Oct. 17 raid on Mi’kmaq camp.

David appealed for help for the four Warriors who remain in jail. “They are not allowed to call out.”

“Help the Warriors that are still in there because they are not being treated right.”

The Canadian police, RCMP, and heavily armed snipers with attack dogs stormed the peaceful anti-fracking camp at Elsipogtog on Oct. 17, 2013. Mi’kmaq women and elderly were abused and pepper-sprayed. At least two Mi’kmaqs were shot with rubber bullets. Fourteen people were arrested.

Mi’kmaq were defending their land from Southwestern Energy of Houston, which has targeted their land for fracking. Southwestern Energy has already been sued in Pennsylvania and Arkansas for fracking and poisoning the drinking water with carcinogens which caused cancer.

Update from APTN: Second Mi’kmaq Warrior beaten after arrest: “I was kicked in the head three times when I was taken down,” said Augustine. “I wasn’t resisting arrest, I had my hands behind my back, and this one RCMP started bashing my head in.”

The Seventh Fire


The Seven Fires are Anishinabe-Ojibwe prophecies. Ojibwe drums, music and dancers. More about the Seventh Fire in description below.

Seven fires prophecy is an Anishinabe prophecy which marks phases, or epochs, in the life of the people on Turtle Island, a Native American name for the North American continent. The Seven fires of the prophecy represent key spiritual teachings for North America, and suggest that the different colors and traditions of the human beings can come together on a basis of respect. It predates the arrival of the Europeans, and contains information for the future lives of the Anishinabe which are still in the process of being fulfilled.

Hopi Legends and the ‘Flying Shields’



The Hopituh Shi-nu-mu (Hopi) people are one of the Native American tribes, descendants of the Ancient Pueblo people that lived in the South West Area of the US which today is called Four Corners (The cross between Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah). One of the groups of the Ancient Pueblo People was the mysterious Anasazi, the ‘Ancient Ones’ that flourished and disappeared mysteriously between 550 and 1300 AD. Hopi’s history goes back thousands of years making them one of the oldest living cultures in the world.

The original name of the Hopi people, Hopituh Shi-nu-mu, means the ‘Peaceful People’. The concepts of morality and ethics are deep rooted in the Hopi traditions and this involved a respect for all living things. Traditionally, they lived according to the laws of the Creator, Maasaw. The Hopi believed that the gods came up from the ground, in contrary to other mythologies where their gods came from the sky. Their mythology suggests that the Ant People inhabited the heart of the Earth. When you see the Hopi Ant people you will find extreme similarities with what we depict today as ‘grey aliens’.

Hopi Ant PeopleIn the Hopi traditions there are cycles of time – similar to the Aztec mythology, as with many other mythologies. And they believed that at the end of each cycle the ‘gods’ return. We are currently going through the forth cycle on Earth. However, what is interesting in those cycles is the third one, where the Hopi talk about the ‘Flying Shields’ (patuwvotas). This world of the forth cycle achieved an advanced civilization that was destroyed in the end by the God Sotuknang – nephew of the Creator, with great floods, in a similar way as in many other traditions.

In describing how advanced the third world was, advanced ‘flying shields’ were developed with the capability to attack cities that were far away and to travel quickly between different places of the world. The similarity to what we consider today as flying discs or even advanced aircraft is uncanny.

According to a the Native American Wisdom Series, “Hopi, Following the Path of Peace”, these words were spoken by Sotuknang at the beginning of the Fourth World:

See, I have washed away even the footprints of your Emergence; the stepping-stones which I left for you. Down on the bottom of the seas lie all the proud cities, the flying patuwvotas [shields], and the worldly treasures corrupted with evil, and those people who found no time to sing the praises to the Creator from the tops of their hills. But the day will come, if you preserve the memory and the meaning of your Emergence, when these stepping-stones will emerge again to prove the truth you speak.

The blue star Kachina according to the Hopi mythology is a spirit that signify the coming of the beginning of a new world, and the spirit appears in the form of a blue star. That is the ninth and final sign before the ‘Day of Purification’ which is the day the old world is destroyed and a new one begins. Those nine signs were described by a Hopi elder in 1958. You can read them here.

Furthermore, according to the Hopi’s traditions, the survivors of the flood of the previous world, spread into different places under the guidance of Maasau, by following his sign in the skys. When Maasau landed he drew a petroglyph showing a lady riding on a ‘ship without wings’ in the shape of a dome. This petroglyph symbolized the day of purification when the true Hopi will fly to other planets in those ships without wings.

Either ‘flying shields’ or ‘ships without wings’, the message is clear. Identifying something using such descriptions clearly refers to what today we know as unidentified flying objects.

The Truth About Long Hair


 

 

2013 November 12
by Worldwide Hippies
This information about hair has been hidden from the public since the Viet Nam War .Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and/or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Vietnam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.

In the early nineties, Sally [name changed to protect privacy] was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Most of them had served in Vietnam.

Sally said, “I remember clearly an evening when my husband came back to our apartment on Doctor’s Circle carrying a thick official looking folder in his hands. Inside were hundreds of pages of certain studies commissioned by the government. He was in shock from the contents. What he read in those documents completely changed his life. From that moment on my conservative middle of the road husband grew his hair and beard and never cut them again. What is more, the VA Medical center let him do it, and other very conservative men in the staff followed his example.

As I read the documents, I learned why. It seems that during the Vietnam War special forces in the war department had sent undercover experts to comb American Indian Reservations looking for talented scouts, for tough young men trained to move stealthily through rough terrain. They were especially looking for men with outstanding, almost supernatural, tracking abilities. Before being approached, these carefully selected men were extensively documented as experts in tracking and survival.

With the usual enticements, the well proven smooth phrases used to enroll new recruits, some of these Indian trackers were then enlisted. Once enlisted, an amazing thing happened. Whatever talents and skills they had possessed on the reservation seemed to mysteriously disappear, as recruit after recruit failed to perform as expected in the field.

Serious causalities and failures of performance led the government to contract expensive testing of these recruits, and this is what was found.

When questioned about their failure to perform as expected, the older recruits replied consistently that when they received their required military haircuts, they could no longer ‘sense’ the enemy, they could no longer access a ‘sixth sense’, their ‘intuition’ no longer was reliable, they couldn’t ‘read’ subtle signs as well or access subtle extrasensory information.

So the testing institute recruited more Indian trackers, let them keep their long hair, and tested them in multiple areas. Then they would pair two men together who had received the same scores on all the tests. They would let one man in the pair keep his hair long, and gave the other man a military haircut. Then the two men retook the tests.

Time after time the man with long hair kept making high scores. Time after time, the man with the short hair failed the tests in which he had previously scored high scores.

Here is a Typical Test:

The recruit is sleeping out in the woods. An armed ‘enemy’ approaches the sleeping man. The long haired man is awakened out of his sleep by a strong sense of danger and gets away long before the enemy is close, long before any sounds from the approaching enemy are audible.

In another version of this test the long haired man senses an approach and somehow intuits that the enemy will perform a physical attack. He follows his ‘sixth sense’ and stays still, pretending to be sleeping, but quickly grabs the attacker and ‘kills’ him as the attacker reaches down to strangle him.

This same man, after having passed these and other tests, then received a military haircut and consistently failed these tests, and many other tests that he had previously passed.

So the document recommended that all Indian trackers be exempt from military haircuts. In fact, it required that trackers keep their hair long.”

Comment:

The mammalian body has evolved over millions of years. Survival skills of human and animal at times seem almost supernatural. Science is constantly coming up with more discoveries about the amazing abilities of man and animal to survive. Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform for the survival and well being of the body as a whole.The body has a reason for every part of itself.

Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved ‘feelers’ or ‘antennae’ that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brain stem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.

Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.

When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out .

Cutting of hair is a contributing factor to unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems. It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration.

Conclusion:

In searching for solutions for the distress in our world, it may be time for us to consider that many of our most basic assumptions about reality are in error. It may be that a major part of the solution is looking at us in the face each morning when we see ourselves in the mirror.

The story of Sampson and Delilah in the Bible has a lot of encoded truth to tell us. When Delilah cut Sampson’s hair, the once undefeatable Sampson was defeated.
