Dakota Treaty Territory

Where do you think that all these social deformities began with our native tribes like Lower Brule? These sadistic behaviors of tribal corruption and child sexual abuse had to be planted somewhere. The truth is this… It was planted long ago in the violence committed against your ancestors behind the closed doors of Indian Missions.
“In 1634, Fr. Andrew White of the Society of Jesus established a mission in what is now the state of Maryland, and the purpose of the mission, stated through an interpreter to the chief of an Indian tribe there, was ‘to extend civilization and instruction to his ignorant race, and show them the way to heaven.’”
Christianity has been the downfall to all tribes. Our native people are too blind to see or are in denial of the truth, the facts and the purpose that Christianity has played in the theft, rape, genocide, murder, massacre, and assimilation of all our Native people.
“If it be the design of Providence to extirpate (root out and destroy completely) these Savages in order to make room for cultivators of the Earth, it seems not improbable that rum may be the appointed means.” – Benjamin Franklin, from his autobiography, 1750s
Praising the Lord Jesus while shooting babies and elders, quoting the Bible while raping native children, thanking their god while murdering natives for their land, praying to Jesus to have a successful day killing children at Wounded Knee.
“Europeans thought that the illnesses that were killing the Native Americans were a divine act of God. According to John Winthrop, God was killing Indians and their supporters to ensure ‘our title to this place.’ And as the ‘instruments of Providence, divinely appointed to claim the New World from its ‘godless’ peoples,’ the colonists felt it was their duty to destroy the ‘godless savage.’ In the words of Captain John Underhill, ‘We had sufficient light from the word of God for our proceedings’ — he refers to the massacre of five hundred Pequot men, women, and children at a village along the Mystic River.”
Many of our people embrace that religion of a race that killed their own Grandmothers and Grandfathers of long ago. Brainwashed by assimilation and generational violence, programmed to pass it down as a reality to their children and grandchildren while abandoning their own culture for the hypocrisy of the white mans religion.
“In South Dakota, some 100 former students of the state’s half-dozen so-called Indian Missions have sued the Catholic Dioceses of Sioux Falls and Rapid City since 2003. They’ve also made claims against the religious orders that ran the mission schools and Blue Cloud Abbey, in Marvin, South Dakota, which provided priests and is the final resting place of several alleged predators. They charge that priests, brothers, nuns and lay employees at these institutions raped, sodomized and molested them, often for years. Court documents, including testimony and Church records filed during the lawsuits’ initial phases, contain accusations of bizarre, violent and humiliating sexual abuse, along with the horrific physical abuse described above.” – South Dakota Boarding School Survivors Detail Sexual Abuse, Stephanie Woodard.
Sometimes the truth in its purest form is hard to hear. The truth may make you angry and hateful and even violent but ultimately it is the truth. What is the native truth? What is behind the curtain of lies that you cannot see? It’s the fact that you were programmed to believe in this great lie. Your have been deceived into thinking that the white man and his CHRISTIAN religion could save you. Look around you… what has changed? Poverty still is the culture of “now” outside your door, violence is still the social norm of your community. Where do you think this behavior began?
“Whilst our highly favored race, that claims to have a Divine revelation containing the purest moral precepts, sends to the Indian, emissaries that breathe out fearful curses against their God—that freely indulge in intoxicating drink, and induce the Indian to partake of it, in order to cheat him out of his lands, and skins and furs, and that corrupt his women under false promises, filling them with most loathsome diseases.” – Journal of the Rev. S. D. Hinman, Missionary to the Santee Sioux Indians.
You see my brothers and sisters you are in fear, you live with fear, you fight against the fear, you suffer because of this fear and what you fear isn’t really yours to begin with. The white man brainwashed you into believing his fear and his Bible so much that when someone stands and exposes his lies and his religion you defend him, you would act out violently against your own people to show him what a good “lamb” you are.
“We opened the door and went in. Sitting Bull was there and he got awake then. He had been singing and dancing and was tired and sleepy, I guess. We told him to go with us. I had hold of his left arm and I had my gun in my hand, too. I told him not to make cry for his people. We would kill him first. We got outside and he made a loud cry as his son came around the corner of the house, and then the hostiles came. His son, Crow Foot, came and was killed right away. He went down these tracks and died. I shot Sitting Bull in the left side. He fell with his face down. I shot him again in the back of the neck then. He was dead then. There were lots of shots then. We had a battle with the hostiles.” – Red Tomahawk
If you want to change your families and save your people from anymore generational poverty and violence you have to denounce Christianity and embrace your own culture. You can’t expect your children to survive in this world if they only know the white mans religion. They won’t know who they are.. They will act out and become suicidal trying to find their true Lakota roots/Native roots but the true culture of our people isn’t just the root history of our people, it is the true teachings of the sacred pipe.
Christianity is the weapon that was used to keep you from your own liberation and from your own freedom. Subjugation has become your norm today. You don’t take a stand against your tyrants because of this deformed belief in your oppressors Bible.
The corrupt Chairman has only replaced the tyranny of the white man. The creed of the new native oppressors like Mike Jandreau can be heard in the genocidal maniac extremists that killed your ancestors in the name of God.
“Damn any man who sympathizes with Indians! … I have come to kill Indians, and believe it is right and honorable to use any means under God’s heaven to kill Indians. … Kill and scalp all, big and little; nits make lice.” – Col. John Milton Chivington
Christianity created the reservations and the social sicknesses that manifested within them. They built their churches and influenced their Christian Indians into their own image.
You know what happened to the children at St. Marys in Lower Brule but no one said anything and no one defended the children. Yeah… You know who was politically raped by the Lower Bule Council and Chairman but again no one did anything.
Yes the abuses and atrocities committed in the name of god by whites happened but today there are no excuses to let it continue. Our enemies are in our camp they have names and titles, their only purpose is to do the Christian Gods will and kill your people themselves by the weapons of Christianity, violence and poverty.
If You Want True Liberation, If You Want True Sovereignty, and If you Want True Change it will only happen when you denounce Christianity and EMBRACE YOUR TRUE CULTURE.
Long Live the Fighters!!!!
