ARE NATIVE AMERICANS BUILDING CONSENSUS FOR A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT AGAINST
NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?
Reader, Welcome to our web magazine. We have been here for a couple of years.
Before you write please note: We are not the Red Nation of the Cherokee.
We are Sioux. We do not condemn or endorse them. We are questioning the law
Look at your own child. You can pass on all your knowledge, your religion
and it's symbols, all your possessions everything that is legally and morally
This you can do legally, morally and justifiably. THAT IS UNLESS YOU ARE
If you bring a child into the world with a partner outside the enrolled Native
American community, your child or your grandchild will be forbidden acceptance
by your tribe.
WHY? The government says, "Not enough 'Indian blood', now your family is
done being Indian." Federal law takes away the human rights of one person
to love another. Federal law imposes the cruelest punishment known to man
against an unborn child, the denial of their ancestors and the acceptance
of their historical family. If some one marries outside their race they
exterminate their own people.
Ask any enrolled Native American, "DOES THE LAW OF ENROLLENT TAKE AWAY THE
RIGHTS OF AN UNBORN CHILD?"
During the period of time when the indian looked like this the reservation
was formed. This also included the Cherokee Nation. People who looked like
this were enrolled. This is what the white man thought the Indian was. In
reality there were many whites, blacks and hispanics that were married into
the Native American families, but they didn't look like this and were excluded
from the rolls.
For the federal government to recognize the rights of any person as being
Native American with a tibal heritage, they must be examined, registered
and enrolled. Registration of Native Americans by Degree of Pure Blood, commonly
called enrollment, is the certification of human flesh in a racial based
system of ethnic segregation. It is described as pedigreed blood quantum,
percentages of "pure Indian blood". The same system is used by breeders to
certify dogs, horses, show and feedlot animals. It is a law of genocide because
it is a law which makes a culture of people into a breed of animals so it
can guarantee their extinction. It has long been hated by the traditional
families because it extracts a hideous penalty. Racial purity has a line
of severance. This is race purity, not cultural or spiritual purity. The
son or daughter who marries outside his race will produce offspring who are
less "racially pure Indian stock" and that child will not be registered as
Indian, forever ending their claim to belong. The penalty is against the
child for no other reason than their parents chose to love another person
out side of the Native American community outside their race. This is racism
in it's purest form and a formula for extinction. Registration sets a limit
where the individual is not recognized or allowed to participate in the tribe
and should they make the attempt are attacked as outsiders. The child is
forbidden the tribe's heritage, it's cultural and religious symbols as well
as it's political, social, economic, cultural and religious structures .
The Government has ordered the tribes to conform and the sell out Indian
has embraced the order. "If you wish to remain an Indian you must maintain
racial purity. You cannot ever love another outside your Native community
and it's race or you will extinguish your tribe." This law is a law designed
to spread racial hatred in every conceivable aspect. It is designed keep
one race separate from another by taking away the ability to freely love
all of the children of the Medicine Wheel, no matter what race they may be.
It makes racists of enrolled Native Americans and racists of those who would
love them as family. It segregates non-registered people from marrying into
enrolled families because every outsider is a threat to the racial purity
of the nation and therefore a threat of extinction. Every tribe enrolls by
blood quantum. The Cherokee Nation was ordered to determine theirs in the
first decade of the 20th Century to allot and extinguish tribal identity
and has never turned back, severing hundreds of thousands of people past
and present from their families and from the protection, heritage, culture,
religion and material life of the people as a Nation. When that law of enrollment
is broken through racial intermarriage, it is not just the parents that will
pay the price for even as they do, the punishment is extracted on the unborn
children. That child will receive the penalty that he or she will never have
the ability to lay clam to their ancestral rights, homeland or material wealth.
This law was installed by the United States Government purely for the purpose
of genocide. This law is genocide purposefully enacted to make people into
animals and exterminate the identity of those living people from existence
on the face of the earth. You will hear a moan and cry of anger come from
defenders of this crime against humanity. The greedy Indian will be outraged
and the other racists will say the "Indians" have done this to themselves.
Anybody who has a lick of common sense and knows their history would tell
you the Indian who did this at the time registration was started was a sell
out to the US Government, and was not the protector of their people. What
tribal official would have chosen a law to exterminate his own people and
to punish his own children?
Answer this question: "HOW DOES THE LAW OF ENROLLMENT TAKE AWAY THE RIGHTS
OF AN UNBORN CHILD?"
"I am not going to be a racist and close my heart to loving and marrying
any other color of person, I am going to love the one who has earned that
love in my heart. My children and grandchildren will always have the right
to our family culture, heritage and religious beliefs." He has violated the
law of racial segregation which is called enrollment and now this child pays
the penalty. She is not recognized by government to be a full member of his
A CHALLENGE TO THE LAW BY A BIRTHDAY IN ANDOVER KANSAS- A NEW NATION IS
They came from Wyoming, Oklahoma, Missouri, North Carolina, the Cherokee
Qualla Reservation and all over Kansas. A family even made the trip across
the puddle from England to this historic event. Traveling as the old bands
and clans did to the philosophy that held the people together as a nation,
the Red Nation of the Cherokee placed their feet together on Mother Earth
and their hearts beat as one to Father Sun shining upon their families. Under
the watchful and protective eye of a dozen uniformed security men of the
Red Nation of the Cherokee the crowd of fathers, mothers, sons and daughters
talked, joked, ate and settled in to listen to speakers who welcomed them.
"We will always claim our own grandchildren" said a Wichita, Kansas resident
to the crowd of Native Americans assembled in Andover Park, Saturday, September
26th, 1998. Putting her arm around her wiggling 8 year old she was greeted
by applause when she continued, "My children can marry any person of any
race they want and I will always love and honor my child and his children
as part of me and as members of my nation. He is the future of our people."
Enrolled Rosebud Sioux elder Clem Iron Wing, blessed the drum and addressed
the assembled families, "You cannot have a law that penalizes the unborn
child and penalizes the freedom to love and marry those of another race.
There is only one sensible, logical way to view that law which forbids the
marrying outside the Indian community. It is wrong. It is wrong when a law
is designed to punish an unborn child. That is unheard of. There is no human
being that would acknowledge such a law. It is a law for animals written
by animals. Only governments bent on genocide would acknowledge it." Joe
Morris, long time Cherokee language instructor at the Mid America All Indian
Center, Wichita, Kansas now a resident of Trenton Texas, said, "There is
a lot to teach these little ones growing up and it is up to us to do it.
Education is very important."
SOMETHING IS HAPPENING TO THE CHEROKEE, THEY REJECT BEING REGISTERED LIKE
DOGS AND HONOR THEIR NAME ANIUNWIA, "THE REAL PEOPLE" "WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS
NOT BLOOD SACKS"
The fastest growing religion in the United States is that of the Native American
people. An awakening is in progress. The United States census reports double
the number of Native Americans in it's last accounting period. Many times
more than could ever be born in that time period. Native Americans are claiming
their families, their ancestors, their heritage and the right to follow the
religion of their choice with the people of their choice. "We are tirerd
of being told we are not Native Americans when we know who we are." said
Shawndose a member of the organizing core for the gathering.
HOW DOES ENROLLMENT DESTROY FAMILIES? ASSERTING THEIR RIGHTS
The Red Nation of the Cherokee celebrating their birth day at Andover, Kansas
are laying claim to their heritage and asserting their rights to intermarry
with any race with out fear of exterminating their tribal heritage, political
recognition or their religious beliefs and customs. By contrast all so called
mainstream religions are rapidly loosing their numbers and resorting to more
and more gimmicks and threats to retain the remainder, leaving one Cherokee
to comment, "I don't think there is enough room in Hell to house all the
people who have thrown away their fear of God and left the Christian churches."
The reason for this surge in embracing true religious values? Native Americans
are no longer afraid to claim their own families. The extermination of their
People and their Nation as a spiritual, political and social force is being
confronted head on. This gathering of Native American families with children
of all ages happily playing together along with the elderly and busy parents
points to a definite splitting of a tribe. There are many who were forced
out by the law of genocide, called enrollment, but now they want their families
reunited. They want their ancestral rights, land and family reunited. This
shows that the Cherokee people are no longer remain ignorant, for the Red
Nation of the Cherokee stands for the rights of all unborn children. That
right is to lay claim to the history, traditions, heritage culture, religion
and it's symbols and the lands of their people not by the division of blood
quantum but by belonging to that family. The right to love those of their
own choosing without the punishment of genocide.
CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT- Can we love whom we want?
The Red Nation of the Cherokee marks what is sure to be the beginning of
a class action law suit against the Government of the United States of America.
What this young tribe has said to the original Cherokee Nation and to the
United States Government is this: "A human has a right to love whom ever
they wish." Why should an unborn child be penalized for the actions of it's
parents who, coming from different races, chose to bring this child into
the world? A question must be answered, "Why does the Cherokee Nation support
a law of genocide designed for the sole purpose of their own destruction
as a Nation?" The enrollment law has failed. The Cherokee people are once
again standing and confronting the sellout who has taken away their right
to love freely in a country of freedom.Any person of dignity and common sense
will conclude the newly formed Red Nation of the Cherokee has given notice
to the Cherokee Nation and the US Government to be ready to test your law
in court. No human being would say that a law which is overtly racist, because
it denies the familial acceptance of any individual of another race, should
remain in effect with out paying a penalty. Had not the newly formed Red
Nation of the Cherokee and their ancestors who were of the so called "pure
blood" not violated this law of enrollment/genocide, than the Cherokee Nation
would have been exterminated long ago. It has taken the courage of freely
loving the human race to keep it alive. This fact is simply proven, look
at any Cherokee to day, trace their ancestral heritage and you will find
they did love out side their race. It is that ability to love another that
has kept them alive. Will the Red Nation of the Cherokee continue to speak
out until all the children of the Nation are once more given their ancestral
rights? These are the same basic rights that all human beings enjoy, the
right to claim their ancestors, their heritage their religions and their
material possessions. Restitution must be made for the suffering.
DO NOT PENALIZE BUT GIVE A CHOICE TO THE CHILD TO GROW AS THEY CHOOSE
Traditional Native Americans do not penalize an unborn child because of greed
but accept them in a sharing fashion. The choice is always left up to the
unborn child to choose the path they will follow back to the Creator/God.
They must be given the recognition and the means to earn that right to honor
their ancestors and walk that Red Path should they choose it. The Red Nation
of the Cherokee has sent a message to the greedy sellout Indian who is so
commonly recognized through out American history books as the traitor. The
message they are sending is clear, "We will no longer allow you to sell the
rights of an unborn child away. We will no longer stand by while you penalize
an unborn child, we will no longer watch you penalize the free will of the
child to love whom ever they wish."
ONE EXAMPLE: THE EAGLE FEATHER Enrollment is a law which forbids the unborn
child in all cases the ability to posses the most recognized religious symbol
of their people, the eagle feather. The US Government regularly arrests and
convicts those who are not registered Native Americans for worshipping with
the eagle feather. Freedom of religion has not yet been given to Native Americans
and the law of registration by enrollment is the tool of religious persecution
that is used to control, dehumanize and terrorize Native Americans. Enrollment
takes away the freedom of religion of an unborn child. In the 1990's the
children are still havening their human rights violated. This child can no
longer hold the religious symbol of the eagle feather. By all means protect
the species called eagle, but do not take away the right to pray.
BLACK AFRICAN AMERICANS & THE CHEROKEE NATION
A law of extermination created to divide the races through hatred .
REPARATIONS ARE DUE FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS
When African Americans speak of reparatioins this isssue of enrollment is
a perfect example of what they are talking about. During the period of time
when enrollment still existed in the Cherokee nation. Slaves were escaping
from the South. They became part of the Cherokee Nation. Their children were
born into the Cherokee Nation. There are many descendants of African American
heritage who are by rights members of the Cherokee Nation. Due to the fact
of the enrollment law which was blood degree at that time, the so called
Superintendents and the so called tribal officials who were the sells outs
and flunkies of the US Government looked at the multi-racial/mixed blood
of the African American and the Cherokee Nation and said, "You don't look
like an Indian you look black to me!" They denied the very existence of these
families and refused them enrollment. Along with this genocide they denied
the benefits of material, religious, social and cultural heritage that are
rightful those of all the many African American Indian children who exist
today. It is their right to belong. Government works to exterminate all Native
identity. For 500 years in the Black Holocaust, African Americans lost their
rights and identity as human beings and still struggle to regain them. Government
uses enrollment to exterminate every one's Native American identity by keeping
people from claiming their heritage, learning and honoring their historical
family culture and it's spirituality. Divide this Indian one more generation
and the government says he is gone, they will not recognize him.
HISPANICS & THE RIGHT TO NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE
With the coming of the Red Nation of the Cherokee, many races previously
denied their heritage by a racist and hateful law of extinction will have
the blessing of belonging. From the point of time when the enrollment law
came into being the unborn child has had it's human rights violated. The
law of enrollment is violating the constitutional rights of many unborn children
to become citizens of the United States. How many children outside the Southern
US border can lay claim to their ancestral heritage? We believe it is in
the hundreds of thousands.
CHEROKEE WENT TO MEXICO
Many Cherokee went to Mexico to escape enrollment and persecution. Just as
Andrew Jackson wanted them to do. Sequoya, a well known Cherokee teacher,
made trips there to visit and share his knowledge. To the idiot who can't
understand why citizenship must be granted the Hispanic/Mexican/Cherokee
here is the explanation. Any military man today who has a child in another
country now has a child with the right to lay claim to citizen ship in the
country of his father because his father is a citizen. Hispanics who can
trace their heritage verbally to the Cherokee Nation have automatic US
citizenship. The only reason they do not is because of the inhuman law of
enrollment that forbids them their ancestral rights of belonging to the people
of their ancestors. This not only applies to Hispanics who can trace their
heritage back to the Cherokee, but ancestry among the Apache, Yaqi, Navaho,
Hopi, Zuni, Seminole and all the Southwestern and Southern tribes.
THE NATION GROWS AND GROWS
Is the new Cherokee Nation the fore runner of US citizenship rights obviously
overdue to Hispanics? Very likely. Will African Americans who have the ancestral
blood of the Cherokee finally start demanding the ancestral rights due them
to help with their education now that Affirmative Action has been crushed?
It is within their grasp. Will white Americans who historically are known
to have intermarried with many Native Americans stand and demand their ancestral
rights? The warning is now out there for Tribal and United States governments.
Native American People all over this hemisphere as well as those returning
from England, and the world are rising to say, "Give us back what is ours
because you were wrong to impose a law that stated my ancestors did not have
free choice to love outside their race. This law established an intolerable
situation and is a crime against humanity. The unborn child which was me
was penalized by giving up what was rightfully mine, my ancestral heritage.
The law of enrollment violated my constitutional rights generations before
I was born, because I was being denied and rejected by the United States
Government and it's flunky tribal system. These are the governments that
labored to exterminate my family. Before my birth I was denied the basic
human right to belong to my own people, the people that my lineage says I
have a right to belong to and I have a right to receive all the benefits
of belonging to my own people.
SO EVERYBODY WHO HAS AN INDIAN IN THEIR FAMILY TREE GETS ENROLLED? - SORRY
IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY HERITAGE MAKES THE INDIAN, THE RIGHT IS EARNED,
We are neither for the new Red Nation of the Cherokee or against them, what
we say is that, like every Native American the right to be called such is
Traditional Native Americans have always said it is heritage that makes the
Native American become a human being, and everything comes down to the education
of the people to walk the Red Path, for there is no other way to set your
foot upon it than to live it. Since the enactment of the enrollment law the
greedy sell out has tried to get around this simple truth. The right to be
Native American is earned. Defend your ancestral heritage by learning it
and seeing that the rights of the people are protected. This is what must
happen. The traditional way of becoming an Indian is by understanding your
culture and learning it. There is no law that can refute this basic human
truth. Ask yourself this question, how many of you are defending the religion
and the religious symbols of our people? Who are the ones that are crying
out about the injustice done to their people? You know those people well
for they are so few. If you wish to be part of those people honor your people.
Honor their rights, their suffering, their traditional beliefs and then I
will accept you as brother or sister. But if you do not hold our honor in
that highest esteem than I must feel that you are not of my people. Let your
voices be raised to protect your religious symbols. Raise your voice and
demand the dignity of your people don't sit there and say "We pray to God
to get to work" then ignore the people in front of us, our brothers and sisters,
our families. Do not say we are only mascots for there is no other people
living in this day and age who are entertainment mascots and treated without
dignity as is the Native American. Demand the rights of your unborn child
and of your ancestral heritage. Demand that the land be returned that was
taken away through atrocities and crimes of genocide in acts of inhumane
proportions. Demand that the Red Holocaust be addressed which is committed
against you as you struggle in this day to regain your ancestral rights.
Remember it was the Red Holocaust that took them away.
FOLLOWING THE PATH BACK TO THE CREATOR THROUGH THE TRADITION OF CHOICE
THE TRADITIONAL NATIVE AMERICAN AND THE CHRISTIAN
There are many paths back to the Creator/God/Great Spirit. The one you take
is your choice and the Red Nation of the Cherokee has made that clear by
saying we are Native American and no one will take the right to earn that
honor and walk the path of our ancestors away from us and our children. Take
for instance, the Sioux culture, because the traditional Native American
Sioux Indian is well defined and is well known to all in this category. The
elder and teacher of any one who is learning as a child does, asks his student,
"Do you still follow the traditional spiritual and religious beliefs of your
people?" Within the Sioux Nation it is common knowledge that if you are called
Native American, which is your family, you must follow that religious path
back to the Great Spirit. That is the tradition of the Eagle Feather, the
Medicine Wheel, the Pipe and others which are religious symbols, as we proudly
state, symbols for all time. The Sioux speaks to say, no one can separate
us from our traditional religious beliefs for that is our ancestral path
to the Great Spirit. That is the way we have come through so many generations
to know and is our tradition and our way of life. To use other symbols and
to walk with another philosophy, is to be some thing else. Very simple and
common sense. How can any individual who follows the spiritual and religious
path of the Catholic, Methodist or Christian churches truly understand the
traditional path of the Sioux Nation back to the Great Spirit? This is very
simple and easy to understand, these people who are Catholic or Christian
by choice and have closed the door on the traditional beliefs of the Native
American people they claim to belong to. Therefore how can they understand,
become part of, or belong to the Sioux Nation if the ancient traditional
spiritual and religious path is cut off from their understanding? Introduced
by the Red Nation of the Cherokee there now exists a flag for the people.
On that flag is the eagle. They made the statement, "The eagle is the sacred
bird that carries our prayers to the Creator". By choosing the eagle feather
they have made the statement they no longer hold the cross but instead have
chosen the older traditional religious symbol, the one that has existed from
the birth of the Cherokee Nation. The ancient religion of the Cherokee Nation
has been honored. It is this religion which has benefited their people longer
than any other religious symbol and that is the ancient path back to the
Creator/Great Spirit. They are saying they will no longer disgrace their
family's religious beliefs. Look around you, the ones who hold the cross
have never come forward to talk about enrollment, they have left you to perish.
They have never protected you or your children's right to belong. They have
not honored your right to your heritage, they have never honored your rights
as a human being, but still consider you a redskin who has survived the
holocaust. The Red Nation of the Cherokee has obviously make this simple
statement, "When you called us redskins you took away our land, you slaughtered
our children and mutilated our women, created the Trail of Murder (Tears)
and now the man who is responsible for that, you honor on the twenty dollar
bill. You classified us as animals, segregated us like animals by blood,
called us redskin savages in that era and installed a breeders law on us.
Now we tell you we are human beings, we are not animals but Human Beings,
the Real People, Aniunwia, and now we want that right to claim our heritage.
In the 90's your soldiers will no longer be honored for using one of our
three year old children for target practice as he ran away from the guns
of genocide toward the loving arms of his family. We are human beings. Aniunwia,
the Real People."
THE TEST OF BELIEF
Native Americans are Native Americans now and through all time back to the
Source of Life. This is true because we know no one can divide the Native
American from their spiritual and religious beliefs for that is their identity.
That is their family line. The simplest thing to do which the Sioux Nation
has done before, is to give the religious identity test. A Native American
holds up the eagle feather, the Pipe and the Medicine Wheel and simply says
"These are the religious symbols that have led our people home to the Great
Spirit from the beginning of time These are the Sioux Nation's connection
to the Great Spirit." Then he holds up a Bible and a Cross which are symbols
of the spiritual and religious beliefs of another people and is asked. "History
has shown these people persecuted and committed the Red Holocaust against
your people. Are these the symbols that you now follow which are not Native
American, not Sioux, but are of the enemy who persecuted the Sioux Nation?
If you choose these it is your right. For it is your right to say what happened
to my ancestors is of no meaning to me, for now I believe this way. But remember
this before you say these words, your ancestral line back to the Great Spirit
is your family from the beginning of time until now. If you walk away from
that family and forget their suffering, it acknowledges the fact that you
are no longer of that family, no longer of the Sioux Nation." That is the
correct way of determining who belongs to the Sioux Nation and who does not.
For each individual born must be given the opportunity to choose to walk
the spiritual and religious path of their family or to reject it and walk
the path of another people. To understand this entirely and to be of the
Human Beings you will know it is not a matter of simply opposing laws that
are unjust to unborn children, and to people, it is a matter of the honor
you hold for your ancestors. This is no small task. Were their beliefs good
enough for you and do you honor them or do you dishonor that family line
and choose another? It is not the wrong way to turn away, it simply says
you are not of the Sioux Nation or the other tribes who have the same spiritual
beliefs, you walk with another family. That is the only moral way to lay
claim to your ancestral heritage, with your own choice to accept that way
of life. How interesting to find out how many in your community would embrace
the Eagle Feather, the Pipe and the Medicine Wheel which are all spiritual
symbols that say you belong to these people. How many people in your community
would embrace the Christian Cross, the Star of David, the Star and Crescent
Moon or other symbols. The symbols which represent the beliefs say to the
world, "These are our people, this is where we belong." How many would stand
in public holding the eagle feather up to say, "I follow that traditional
path home."? This is the way a human being recognizes who you are and where
you belong. The traditionals have always understood this for this is the
way of honor. If you can stand in the open and express that honor of your
people then you belong to those people. It will always honor those people.
In forming the Red Nation of the Cherokee, these people have installed many
unanswerable questions. But that is only for now, for with their actions
the seed has been planted for an accounting of all the wrongs done during
the Red Holocaust against the Native Americans. The Native American has come
to a day of reckoning by their intelligence and their hearts and no longer
will we sit silent. -copyright by Clem Iron Wing & Matthew Richter, 1998
OUR MAIL BOX
Our e-mail box is open for the so called grandmothers and grandfathers who
think they can justify a law that says this child is no longer a member of
her family and entitled to what every child is entitled to, the belonging
of her family. The reason we put this up is because it is such a huge issue.
If you have any comments on it or can defend it, send us a letter, it is
open for discussion. Please explain why you are against it or why you are
for it. Question: Are you Native American? Are your children enrolled? Will
they be enrolled?
Look around the web, THE TRUE INDIAN SITES ON THIS INTERNET WILL VOICE
AN OPINION ON THIS IF THEY ARE TRULY INDIAN
Now it is an issue of whether or not their ancestral heritage is held in
any form of honor and dignity within them. You will see Native Americans
who are proud of their ancestral heritage responding to this article. What
you will not see is the fake Indian because they can be exposed. So when
you view a Native American site and you don't see a link to this page know
they are only claiming to be a Native American to receive benefits. If they
don't stand up and speak for their heritage and it's cultural beliefs how
can they possibly be Indian? We will find the real Indian pro or con speaking
out on this issue. What we will do here is to separate the sell out and the
wannabe from the human beings.
