The Spirtual Movement of Audrey Thayer – The one that Bites

December 8, 2012

ILL Hyenas

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:

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.

Felicite

 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!

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!!

Blind Justice

November 26, 2012

by: Denise Pictou Maloney

Before my mother was stolen from us she managed to teach me two of the most valuable lessons you can teach a human being, “speak the truth while standing your ground and don’t let anyone ever tell you they are better than you are, we are all equals.” I came into this world aware of the historical injustices our nations suffered at the hands of the colonizers and I am also fully aware of the injustices our women and children suffer in our own communities today.

I have never understood the fracture in native resistance and grassroots justification in what morally and ethically is constituted as wrong. Wrong is wrong period, there are no conditions when a life is lost, it doesn’t matter who the perpetrator is. Speaking truth and justice does not require you be from a particular ethnic group, specific demographic or side of the law. Our family learned very early on coming off of an era that was wrought with racism and indifference that no one was going help us if we didn’t help ourselves. Instead of blaming others for NOT doing anything, we dug in and did it.

We wrote letters, we asked the questions, and though we did not for a long time get any answers, understanding now the level of betrayal in the events that led up to my mother’s death, it isn’t difficult to understand why there was such a delay. We were met with many obstacles over the years never imagining the biggest would be from within NDN country itself and had it not been for Paul DeMain and his tenacity to keep the story alive and current I can guarantee many would have forgotten my mother .

The great AIM warriors did the unthinkable; they murdered one of their own women and blamed the feds, knowing that the historical fear and paranoia of the FBI would hopefully keep their dirty secret. I personally have neither feared nor exalted the historical actions of the federal authorities ever.

I refuse to let anyone or any event be my moral and ethical barometer in deciding if taking the life of a woman is wrong. What the AIM leadership did to my mother is unforgivable, and what they have done to the moral and ethical fiber of native resistance is unconscionable. To knowingly feed the public lies about their knowledge, facilitation and murder of one of their own women in the shadow of native resistance while blaming it on the colonizers is one of the most cowardly actions I have witnessed and is a traditional abomination. My mother’s murder was never a government vs ndn issue, the AIM leadership made it into that issue to hide their tracts and complicity in her murder purposefully.

If there was FBI infiltrators then the old AIM leadership would have known about it and protected that person or persons with their lies. So who is really the fed facilitator? For over two decades human beings knowingly twisted and maintained their silence on the events of that era for a reason, because they knew what they had done was no better than what the colonizers did to our own ancestors. I am glad to hear that others are questioning the old Leadership of AIM, I guess calling me fed, diversionary and accusing me of cozying up to the feds did not change the facts or the truth. The times are changing; people are educating themselves and are able to live confidently autonomous without acting like lemmings of living in fear of retaliation because they have taken ownership of their place and rights in this universe. Because my family or any other family happens to be speaking about the same injustices as the federal authorities doesn’t mean we are aligned with them or against them.

Speaking about injustices aligns you in morality and ethics, not in lifestyles or history and there are no sides to truth. The generations handling these injustices in this time are their own human beings in most cases and were not there on either side of the law and it is unfair for me to paint them with the same paintbrush. That being said there is a difference if people are knowingly supporting individuals who have the blood of innocents on their hands for the sake of being anti- establishment.

For the record so people understand the feds were the vessel that carried justice for my mother it was the actions of a few courageous eyewitnesses and the persistence of a few prosecutors ( who not once by the way ever tried to justify the historical actions of the FBI ) that brought my mother justice .

How sad is it that we had to rely on the federal authorities to bring justice for one of our own women that ndn country had sang about, marched about, and exalted for decades yet AIM nor any other entity could not bring themselves to once campaign for her right to life.

Sadly it’s too bad our women are not as important as a plot of land or the name of a sports team huh?

Self Genocide – In Response to Good Riddance Hustler Means

October 31, 2012

There is nothing respectful towards the Cannunpa when people are taught to stay silent about abuse. The mindset  created from corrupted teachings,  “I did come across some shocking incidences involving pipe carriers…..they will go unnamed out of respect to the pipe” ~SW~ ,  is one of the ultimate forms of disrespect towards “it’s” teachings and a beginning point of self destruction for tradition.

AIM IndoctriNation Policy

This disrespect is generated by the “mentality and teachings” that have bastardized culture and tradition and perpetrated genocide from within 1st Nations. Too many people today, point the finger of cause at all other for the growing statistics of abuse and social dysfunction.

Too many youth, since the days of the Wounded Knee Siege, have been Indoctrinated to blunder one another, rape one another, and whore off one another as a result of that mindset, mentality. Too many kids today are doing as they have been taught by the mentality of role models such as those like the Hustler who are supported and promoted as traditional elders  by some of the 1st Nations representatives, educational systems and media.

Oct. 28, 2012 , fb reply to Good Riddens RM

SW: I had no idea….I lived with the Nakoda and Lakota for 4 years, shared their ceremonies, cooked their food, cleaned their house.

I did come across some shocking incidences involving pipe carriers…..they will go unnamed out of respect to the pipe

I truely believed Russel Means was above that. But, when another, shall we say, “Spiritual leader” commits many rapes on boys as well as girls, and gets away with it because of his rank, then I guess anything is possible.

Thank you Joe Wade for your info. I always try to see the good in people. Sometimes I am shocked back to reality!

What Would Have Happened Yesterday

Mi`kmaq (Abenaki ,People of the Dawn) design of catlinite are found as far south as the Gulf and from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky mountains, engraved with four hearts on both sides which could be an Osage design

Place yourself within community prior to the days of foreign belief system influence on culture, and imagine how people would have responded to their children being raped and abused from someone who was “considered” a spiritual person. Would people have protected their way of life by not making others aware of the ill spirit that conducted activity of abuse, saying their reason for Silence was for the respect of belief, NO!.

People can not pass responsibility onto the influence of new belief systems in today’s corrupted cultural and spiritual teachings. This mindset is a direct result from the teachings within community by the likes of Means, Banks, ShowDog, etc …. And yet today, some  1st Nations representatives who are aware of the ill behavior, excuse such people and place them on pedestals as champions, as role models for the youth and as a result 1st Nations are killing themselves from within; Self-Genocide.

****

Mr. Hustler would not even be honest with his identity

“In 1983-1984, when I was working in the Archives of the Oglala Lakota College, I was shown the genealogy of Russell Means: A white army man, Colonel Means, married a Crow woman and settled in Pine Ridge. One of his sons, Hank Means, Russell’s father, was half white, half Crow. He in turn married a Yankton woman who gave birth to Russell and his three brothers. The Yankton are Nakota, not Lakota. The Nakota are a group of the Great Sioux Nation which differed from the Lakota and the Dakota by language, traditions, and mode of life..Therefore, Russell Means would be half Nakota, one quarter Crow, and one quarter white. 0% Lakota. Please correct me if I am wrong.” source: comments at Rezinate.wordpress.com

****

Hustler Supporters Fighting to Save Culture and Tradition

Some of the Tribal colleges, Tribal Representatives, Tribal Media minimize abuse and ill actions of so called champions by saying people like the Hustler is a controversial figure and in doing so they minimize acts of rape, lying to the world about the murders of people such as Annie Mae, Perry Ray, and numerous other innocents.

Those supporters will huff and puff about mascot’s and cartoon pictures, which are nothing more than diversions from the abuse that has been created by ill spirits such as the Hustler.

****

Why will no one Help !

Amazing how people sit back and watch the internal conflict. They support such illness as the Hustler’s mentality and hide his actions, while they observe the youth kill off one another, and then wonder why no one will get involved or care when their own children end up being another statistic.

Perhaps people should start asking  why those statistics have constantly increased across just about all reservations since the days of the Wounded Knee Siege and the hijacking of Lakota Spiritual Legacy,  In place of people promoting blAIM.

 “Bear” and the Truths

What is Leech Lake Tribal College Hiding by Deleting Posts


Joe Wade > “if LLTC elects to delete the above postings,it will be no different than AIM an affiliates burying the truths of Annie Mae Pictou Aquash, Perry Ray Robinson Jr., the numerous innocents buried at wounded knee as reported by Lakota Spiritual person Matthew King who was the interpreter for Fools Crow , that King reported to the FBI ,so if the truths are too much to “bear” , delete away and continue onward supporting those with the blood of innocents on their hands , thou keep in mind by doing so, i.e hiding, excusing, supporting such one also carries that blood to some degree, its a basic morals and ethics thing and it is something that can not be hidden from ancestry”

In other words Shsssssh …. ,

to enable the movement  of violent illness created by those

who held their own interest above 1st Nations
