It’s alright to lie, deceive and use people, culture and tradition as long as it’s for the “Cause” , right Audrey?
In the adjoining community recently , Dennis Banks fell on his face at the front door and now Audrey Thayer is trying to come in through the side door of the non-native community to develop a working together relationship?
Around the year of 2002 a child bites another in a local fast food establishment, the mother of the bitten child responds no different than a Bear or Wolf parent, she protects her born from the one that bites.
This escalates into the two guardians of the children entering a verbal conflict, which prompts the establishment to notify law enforcement. The establishment after gaining an understanding of what prompted the verbal conflict, in order to stop it’s escalation , directs the guardian of the biting child to leave the premisses. While doing so law enforcement arrives, questions that same woman of the events who is then arrested for a existing warrant of theft.
Seven months pass, then Audrey Thayer launches a protest campaign. She labels the food establishment, the community and the law enforcement as RACIST and announces her campaign a “Spiritual Movement”.
07-31-2002 , Stinson, Daune , The Circle Newspaper ,
“In January, a 3-year-old girl was bitten by a 2-year-old boy while in the McDonald’s play area. On that, both parties agree. The story diverges from there and now has strong offshoots of accusations against the police and a boycott of the Bemidji Lakeside McDonald’s.”
Two or so years later the ACLU selects Thayer to head off an office in that community. For the last ten years, Thayer even while representing the ACLU has constantly used “Racist” towards people who do not support her ill behavior while using words such as “The Birmingham of the North” as a marketing slogan to promote herself.
Thayer’s “Spiritual Movement” is based on the teachings and indoctrination of those she adorns herself with, those she protects through deception, leading people to believe her mentors are not directly responsible for the murder of Civil Rights Activist Perry Ray Robinson Jr. , Annie Mae Pictou Aquash, and other innocent people.
Thayer under the advise of Tribal representatives, was recently brought into our community by an organization called the Working Together Collation. So sad that good hearted people will be used “again” to enable the “Spiritual Movement” that Thayer is using the ACLU to promote.
Thayer’s Spiritual Movement falls more in line with Spiritual Exploitation than learning, healing and growth.
Frank Fools Crow was right with the illness he saw coming. When will Tribal representatives, Tribal Colleges, community members and others realize how they are living a lie and quit enabling the illness that continues to migrate.
For a more comprehensive understanding review the links below:
- Get ready for bogus youth/school kid discrimination claims
- Thayer is an insult to those who suffered to suppress Hatred
- When people pray to protect those full of illness, expect it to return
- Working Together Collation meeting & the after effects
As per the Dec. 4th WTC community meeting where Audrey commented about provoking through dialog, how she prompted a Sheriff into coaxing his deputy to drop charges against someone, She should at least give out the Sheriff’s name. Then again no name equates to nothing more than flag waving and horn blowing.
At that same meeting when questioned how many instances of racial profiling Thayer had proven in the courts, she replied about 10 and followed up with saying she has collected data for approximately 900 cases. From my understanding, after an excess of 1million dollars spent and at such a low percentage of validated claims one would think Thayer would quit yelling racism. Her actions are feeding anger and frustration into the communities, what else is expected from grant opportunists that hold and enact AIMster scam tactics.
10 claims proven ???? , sounds like more lies, will have to research that.
More Lies from Audrey. When Thayer was addressed at that meeting about calling northern Minnesota “the Birmingham of the North” and how insulting it is because of the disregard toward those who were murdered during that era, She denied doing so , saying she was speaking of Duluth.
“Thayer said that in the six-county northern Minnesota area including Red Lake, Leech Lake, and White Earth, 97 percent of those incarcerated are Native. “We are considered the Birmingham of the north,” she said.” ~extracted from an interview with http://www.workers.org “Birmingham of the North”, By Mahtowin Munro , Stephanie Hedgecoke ,Published Mar 30, 2005 11:02 AM
Thayer started her Spiritual Movement off with lies and deception, over 10 years of screaming Racism she continues to do so with nothing to show for after expelling a million plus to continue her rhetoric using corrupted 1st Nations cultural teachings and beliefs. Something is seriously WRONG with supporting people who do such.
Audrey Thayer take note of what a Tratior is about and start helping people and communities to heal , in place of using them with your ill teachings.
We will always honor the Heart of Félicité
1839 was our first bout with yellow fever. The epidemic spread up and down the Bayou. Almost every family counted at least one victim.
Racism is washed away when people focus on instances where we helped one another, i.e through examples of positive growth , NOT by pointing the finger and casting false accusations. Finger pointing of such feeds anger and frustration which in turn feeds VIOLENCE!
Sign, Sign, everywhere there are signs, and still people do not want to address or explore how bastardized cultural teaching and spiritual hijacking is a direct cause for the negative aspects of day to day life on the rez. Too bad WTC has decided to also mask and hide events posted to it’s fb site that correlate the mentality of those who are trying to use them as a tool to spread sickness. They can block and delete whoever , whatever they want, and in doing so “WTC has been tricked” into becoming an enabler. (note: comments section for an example of deleted posts)
Can’t you read the signs?
1st we murder innocents including our own, then we lie to everyone about the murders, then when the truths arise we pray for the murdered innocents and those who murdered them , while saying “forgive”.
FORGIVENESS: all belief systems have basically 3 criteria, admit to the wrongful acts, make a commitment to not act in such a way again, then offer some form of restitution. Those murders of innocents, those hijackers of spirituality, those so called hero’s of 1st Nations have “never” done any of the 3 and their death when it comes will not wash their hands clean of the blood they carry. So support “it” if you want , that’s a choice to continue passing blAIM onto all other while trying to evade accountability.
It’s what’s best for the youth correct?
Don’t Disguise It, Stop with the Hate!
“Dear Marley and Indigenous Women for Justice, Please know that I am with you.
This whole process stinks. Bottom line Anna Mae was murdered because she was a
strong woman. She was made an example for the rest of us to keep quiet.”
“But what is denied actually does exist and
eventually comes to the surface, just as
any truth will eventually surface
despite acts to hide it.”

(publisher note: Olson might want to look towards internalized racism, and how it is now being projected outward by people to try and evade accountability and responsibility, and what is the primary source of “Power” in NDN country, in current time, that has perpetrated that internalized racism that is being projected onto others outside of NDN country)

Ashley Woods fb reply I was at the cl elementary when myself, along with @10 other teachers were informed that some sort of a threat was made involving red lake, bemidji and cass lake boys. As to what the threat was or to whom it was made we were not told.
Publisher Note: could threats of violence at Bemidji, Cass Lake School be a result from racist accusation escalating through the communities from Banks (AIM Mentality & Supporters) , Parents, Students & Thayer’s wide area radio pr campaign?
If the false accusations continue, You Bet Cha Violence could become the result!!
