Oshki-agojin Gathering

July 26, 2015

image11

The Oshki-agojin Gathering existed for 4 years, organized & conducted souly through volunteer interest and efforts. The Oshki-agon Gathering & Grounds closed it’s fires on what would have been it’s 5th year of activity since the local indian council planned and  initiated it’s 1st PoW Wow to be held next door on the baseball field, on the annual dates of the Oshki-agon Gathering.

“the assertion of imperialism in conjunction with cultural appropriation lays the foundation for cultural genocide. the dominant meanings of another’s society renders the particular perspective of one’s own group invisible, at the same time, that  group is stereotyped , morphed, transformed into something other than it’s origins.

the dominating group’s world views, ideologies and perspective of reality is elevated, sanctioned, and universalized and becomes the norm that the other is obligated to accommodate.

Truth and Reconciliation Healing – Pick Your Flavor

July 19, 2015

tp

When You Believe in Things You Don’t Understand, Then You Suffer!

Superstition Ain’t the Way ….

~Superstition – Stevie Wonder~

The truth and reconciliation psychotherapy brainwashing scripts have quite the affiliates with mountains and mountains of so called holistic healers (click for list).

Take your pick of flavor, Vincent LaDuke’s (SunBear) acid dropping hippie commune BearTribe and Children medicine wheel and astrology rhetoric, Phil Lane Jr’s Bahai’s (offshoot of islam) influenced talking sticks and answering feathers, Eddie Benton Banais (who recently declared all 1st nations of this continent as Anishinabe and that he is the direct bloodline of the knight temples) freemason influenced midewin which includes Billy BlackWell Sr’s hype of spirituality and ufo mix. Dave Courchene’s twinkie mix at his so called turtle lodge (which also includes bahais and fremason symbology and influence). All tied together with Circles of Healing as per the muslims at the top of the DOJ (Maha Jeweid who btw did child custody cases in Jordan as part of her internship before going to England) and her sidekick Mohamed Shahabuddeen that were instrumental with implementing Sharia Law in England …..

All to create tribal / non-tribal judiciary, education, health service systems through mutual agreements of understanding with state and county administrations …. under the pretense of 1st nations values, cultural traits and beliefs ….

It really is a Joke that people are having their world views, identity and ideologies altered by scripts while trashing 1st Nations identity, social manipulation scripts that tie all the way back to the early 70’s by people like that syrian peddlers son James Abourezk ….

Welcome to the latest and greatest of Kool-Aid BrainWashing!!!!

Deja Moo! eh?

Anyone who believes this White Bison org b.s (which ties back to all that mentioned above ) shake and bake concoction for Circles of Healing will create any form of sound foundation to preserve identity MUST HAVE ROCKS IN THEIR HEAD!

The “SUM” of APPROPRIATION

“Cultural appropriation is a by-product of imperialism, capitalism, oppression, and assimilation. Imperialism is the creation and maintenance of an unequal cultural, economic and territorial relationship, usually between states and often in the form of an empire, based on domination and subordination. Imperialism functions by subordinating groups of people and territories and extracting everything of value from the colonized people and territories. In the case of cultural appropriation, culture is treated as a “natural resource” to extract from People’s beliefs, values and traditions.

Cultural appropriation is profitable. Objects and traditions (but not the people) of marginalized cultures are seen by the dominant culture as exotic, edgy, and desirable, which translates into profits. Capitalism works best when people are not individual people with celebrated differences, but identical workers, cogs in the machine. Once diverse cultural identities are stripped away, the only culture left to identify with is capitalism culture.

This is one aspect of assimilation, in which marginalized communities lose their cultural markers and are folded into the dominant culture.”

Bemidji Truth and Reconciliation – Hiding Truth

July 12, 2015

Peacemaker Tribunals for State & County Courts

Does the American judiciary system need such foolishness from that Syrian Peddlers son James Abourezk’s working group through Maha Jewied (doj) and her side kick Mohamed Shahabuddeen who are working so diligently creating the groundwork to sneak foreign law (sharia law) in the future , into the state and county court systems through Tribal court mutual agreements of understanding with the pretense of “so called traditional” native american judicial practices with peacemaker tribunals and holistic healers ????

The Bemidji Truth and Reconciliation startup was sponsored by Bemidji Leads,  and hosted by the BSU’s American Indian Resource Center.

Becky LaPlante, of the Blandin_Foundation, has been working on a similar effort, the Circle_of_ Healing being carried out by a group from the Grand Rapids, Minnesota area.

 The Circle_of_ Healing BRAIN WASHING Team  was Initiated in the early 1970’s with the likes of (SunBear) Vincent LaDukes Bear Tribe & Bear Children at an experimental college, Davis University / Berkley,  Mr. Bahais Phil Lane jr Four Winds Nature Institute through the Seattle Bahais and other government handler, hand picked so called spiritual leaders, such as Eddie Benton Banais of Three Council Fires & David Courchene of the Turtle Lodge.

WHA school district, Walker town and sheirff’s department SCREAMING and trying to label them as RACIST back in 2012 , that working group that started throwing out generational trauma in their review and needs to address the social chaos script that was put into play while trying to avoid accountability and responsibility for a few kids that assaulted sheriff deputies at the WHA school , to garnish sympathy to try and shove down the throats of the non-native community that cultural sensitiviy teachings needed to be put into play to fix a few out of control teens that got arrested for assaulting Cass County Sheriff Officers .

Heck Thayer’s spirit dish did not even cool off , before she was outright lying when questioned at that meeting about her claims on police profiling in Bemidji and calling northern minnesota the birmingham of the north …. all tied to Larry Aitkin, Elaine Fleeming, Lenore Barsness, Anton Treuer, Sally Finday, etc, etc, etc …. and the followers of the secret grand medicine society of Eddie Benton Banais with his midewiwin freemason influenced grand poo pah spirituality con …. as said …. do not take me for a fool: next i will be hearing your working groups efforts are in no way affiliated with Sandy White Hawk and White Bison org’s morphed teachings from Mr. Bahis (offshoot of islam beliefs) Phil Lane Jr and working groups who all tie back as tin soldiers to that Syrian peddler son James Abourezk (adviser to Obama), Maha Jewied (DOJ) along with Mohamed Shahabuddeen ….

What they don’t understand is that it’s also ongoing. That piece really needs to be brought to the forefront.

Treatment should provide the individual with an opportunity to:
    • Succeed in changing his/her perception of his/her place and goals in the world; • Practice healthy, life-affirming choices
    .
    Evaluate his/her role as trouble-maker vs. PEACE_MAKER; and

  • jw Joe Wade > Linsey, should we discuss the Bemidji Truth and Reconciliation script and how it coincides with the upcoming mutual agreements of understanding between state/county and tribal entities and how those agreements are being set up to coincide with the recent proposed indian child welfare act regulations, the new tribal recognition guidelines, obama’s grand idea of tribal economic development as mentioned during the xmass tree lighting week , that has up to this point turned into pot farming, eric holder’s justice reform who has Maha Jewied at the helm for wellness courts (county/tribal court agreements already in play) which will eventually include peacemaker concepts into tribal courts while at the same instance trying to contaminate the county courts with so called native justice and healing , obama’s generation i youth programs, all tied neatly together with the latest and greatest brainwashing scripts from White Bison org through with Sandy White Hawk and her quazi fruitloop holistic healing con’s that date all the way back to the early 70’s that have TOTALLY FAILED THE YOUTH and totally screwed up the identity of the Nations …..
    .
    Not that this Truth and Reconciliation working group should be concerned, because addressing such correlations would mean having to take hands out of the Federal Funding Pie ….. Keep it up, you guys are doing a great job at enhancing and promoting Self Genocide, while the non-tribal people in support of all this craziness are led to believe they are assisting the Nations with healing …. Que Sera Sera …. What a JOKE!

Closing Note for this Update:
May 2013:  Standing Rock [where Obama visited the following year] and Oglala Sioux tribes protested through letters submitted to Congress and the Department of the Interior the first week of May. Tribal representatives from Standing Rock also travelled to Washington D.C. to meet and discuss the disapproval of the original agenda. Since then, the agenda has changed. Kevin Washburn, the new Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs will be attending the Summit and former Sen. James Abourezk, who was key in the development of ICWA, will be participating as well. “We’re pleased that the agenda has been amended in significant ways,” Iron Eyes said in an interview with Indian Country Today Media Network. Along with the inclusion of Abourezk participating, the agenda will now include a section to address funding among the tribes for ICWA related issues. “I would like to see direct funding so we can do it ourselves,” Brewer said in a phone interview with ICTMN in reference to Native foster care systems. http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2013/05/13/great-plains-icwa-summit-hoping-address-native-foster-care-concerns-149326 AND Feb 2015: Obama Moves Tribes from Discretionary to non-discretionary for  contract support of IHS
One thing about shining the light on Roaches, they scatter, get in a hurry & make mistakes as they try to push their agenda’s forward, ahead of schedule 🙂

  • Kathleen Blanc > Scott and I are most interested in participating in Healing Circles where there is speaking and listening in respectful, deep ways. We know how to both set and hold sacred space where there is only One. We are deeply, deeply grateful to have this opportunity to be vehicles for community healing with indigenous people who are also reaching out to us. Thank you.
  • jw Joe Wade  >  healing circles, talking sticks, answering feathers were introduced into 1st nations beliefs, culture and traditions by Mr. Bahais Phil Lane Jr. back in the 70’s , who is in no way a traditional lakota as he claims to be as that of his father Phil Lane, keep in mind the Bahais is an offshoot of Islam. might want to do your research on that …. . as far back as the 70’s Phil and his Bahais working groups have been contaminating 1st nations beliefs and teachings, those groups who btw were directly involved with the initiation of the indian child welfare act (icwa) through the Seattle Bahais creation of the DayBreak Center (now the United Tribes) & that Syrian peddlers son James Abourezk (who’s son Charlie was at the home where Annie Mae Pictou Aquash was beaten raped the night before she was exucuted by AIM, as per the directives of AIM leadership, and Charlie and leadership to this day are directly tied to the lakota peoples project, lastrealindians, all who are pushing the “Truth and Reconciliation Scripts” , and keep in mind the working relationships of those same people who tie back to Vincent LaDuke’s (Winona LaDuke’s father) Bear Tribe and Children that was conjured at the Davis University experimental college, that bear clan that gained its thrust through acid dropping , pot smoking hippie communes, that college where dennis banks became chancellor during his days of working with Jim Jones of the People’s temple …. . Neat to have such a foundation for healing circles now being administered through “Truth and Reconciliation” identity altering scripts laid out by twisted government handlers such as James Abourezk eh? …. spiritual seduction at its finest under the pretense of healing & truth …. . here are a few notes you might want to research before trusting that so called healing circles , which in reality are coercive persuasion tactics , https://jpwade.wordpress.com/…/birth-of-pan-american…/ Linsey McMurrin, Michael Meuers should have caught on by now of who they are working with, Anton Treuer and Mike Meyers have been at for years and know exactly what they are doing ….

    July 21 – UpDate –

    Such Honorable and Noble traits eh?

    Keep in mind over 1/2 dozen AIM members testified to the actions of the murderers.

    Since when is it a political issue to cherish support from  an organization who’s members were directly involved with the  murderers of a Native Woman who was raped, beaten until her teeth fall out, then had a  bullet put in the back of her head while she prayed for her children, then tossing her to the winter elements to die a political issue.

    Great Bunch to have support from eh?, while people who cherish such support, try to justify their affiliation with  sick people.

    Bemidji Truth and Reconciliation Deletes more Truths from its FB Site

    Sickness at it’s Finest !!!!The Maine Wabanaki tribe mentioned in the lakota peoples law project post (below) promoted by the Bemidji Truth & Reconciliation group , are family relations of Annie Mae.

    Those family members  have been targeted by the likes of the LPLP, Sandy White Hawk of White Bison org and working groups to be USED AND ABUSED to promote and garnish support through the Truth and Reconciliation script that is being applied towards the new  …. proposed Indian Child Welfare  (ICWA) Regulations …..

     

    Image1jwJoe Wade > noticed and promoted by chase iron eyes of the Lakota Peoples Law Project who supports the AIM members who murdered a a Mikmaq Woman , Annie Mae Pictou Aquash , such pride in recognition from such people is an insult to family , community and the Nations , especially family such as Denise Pictou Maloney the daughter of Annie Mae.

    Keep in mind Madonna ThunderHawk of the LPLP slapped Annie Mae around during interrogations during the same time AIM memebers raped her, beat her till her teeth fell out , then executed Annie Mae the following morning with a bullet to the back of her head while she prayed for her children, then dumped her body as if she was garbage. Keep in mind the advisor of the LPLP James Abourezk’s son Charlie Abourezk was at Bill Means house that nite AIM leadership ordered the execution , that nite before the Dawn Annie Mae was executed …. They all lied for 25+ yrs to everyone …. great bunch of people to hold honor from for recognition eh? Great bunch of people to be proud of for promoting this truth and reconciliation eh ?

    Received a response – That is a Political Issue,

    Really?  – Truth and Reconciliation ????

    It Takes a Really Sick Mind and demented morals and ethics to call such a Political Issue , no matter what a persons heritage or personal beliefs are.
