  • Carl Leith these weren't and couldn't be abrogated, because Congress said they had already paid the Indians abrogated them the Indians had to give the money back that was already given to them
    1 hr · Unlike · 3
  • Carl Leith cant abrogate them without consent of both parties...only 5 Dakota Chiefs abrogated the treaties they had signed with consent and they and their descendants would acquire the same rights and privileges of a US Citizen

I Demand US Reparations for ALL Crimes.

The US has never PAID for the incalculable atrocities committed on the American Indian during it's rapid and vicious growth.  Billions of dollars are OWED to ALL TRIBES for the unbridled genocide, ethnocide, and infanticide committed in the name of God and Country.  The US needs to be TRIED and SENTENCED in the International Court of Crimes, for crimes committed against the Indigenous people of the Northern Hemisphere.

The Seven Parables of Wood and Stone

This morning as I was walking my dog, Robin, it occurred to me.  Every religion in the world is underdeveloped.  And the only true spiritual practice and way of life is the Pipe Way of Life, Wico aa Canupa.

Roman Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Shiite, Mormonism, Satanism, Atheism, Zealotism, there all underdeveloped.  They've never reached their full potential, their full meaning, they've never attained their full power or status with God.

And as a result all those who have followed those belief systems have not reached their full potential in the eyes of God.  Therefore they lack spiritual achievement, holy advancement, Godliness.

And so the world is full of spiritually based relics of the past that have no meaning.

I am like, wow.

In my search for the truth I have seen many lies.  Most of which came from religions of all sorts.  Contradictions, suppositions, and presuppositions, doctrines, Papal Bulls, Holy Edicts, visionary revelations, enigmatic manifestations of the flesh and the spirit.

It's all fluff, illusion, man-made, creationism, manipulative.  The truth is hard to find when it is not there.

So now I believe I can stop looking.

My uncle Chris, whom I loved dearly and whom I miss every day, said, Christianity will only bring you so far.  And for a long time I thought I understood what he meant, but the truth is I only understood a fraction and now I see it all.

Once during a Sundance I felt God.  It was the most powerful experience I have ever had spiritually.  So I know he exists.  But that's all I really know except for that he was in the sundance arbor.  That's the center, the hocoka.

When I seen the film The Last Temptation of Christ, there's a scene when he goes to the desert and draws a circle in the ground, his hocoka, and he sits inside and waits for his visions, he eventually receives several.

Well I told my son, Indian people have been doing this for thousands of years before Christ.  So we always knew how to find the truth and we understood where the truth came from, God.

That's how I know the Pipe Way of Life, Wico aa Canupa is the true way and there is no other.

World War III will be about water.  There will not be enough water for the human race to survive.  It will be be oil, or money, or food, or housing, or health care.  It will be water.  Water is life.  Water is survival.  Nations will destroy one another over this vital resource.  Many will die and most will suffer.  The sad part is that this doesn't have to happen.  We can prevent it now.  But will we.
