Just searching on ‘Flint Knives’ and found this…a Gent to keep an eye out for if you’ve a mind for making a hobby, or business, of flintknapping.

****************************************************

Third Annual Ft. Hamby Pow Wow held in Wilkesboro NC. It was presented by the Blue Ridge Intertribal Pow Wow Association and the W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir. There were many events and crafts centered around Native American Indian Culture. I was particularly interested in flint knapping, which is the art of making arrowheads, spearheads, knives and sharp edged tools out of silica based stone. I met an instructor by the name of Barry who is himself part Cherokee by heritage. He began teaching me about flint knapping by explaining the materials and tools of the craft.

Will people buy into it? Of course they will, too many love them some conspiracy, too many walk around in a self induced coma, too many are armchair activists who are capable of little more than than being a sponge that soaks up the party line.

There are people who champion Charles Manson, skinheads who do likewise of Hitler-should any be surprised that there are those who would champion Peltier, Graham, and the wannabe chiefs?

I just watched the latest video offered on the Annie fb page and would commend Paul DeMain for having said what should be understood by one and all-not verbatim as cited below but close enough to make the point.

“Silence is killing our children we need snitches who say there is a crack house here that is killing our children-my uncle is raping his niece.”

By the Liberators own definition and liberal application of the word snitch, one would have to say Russell Mean’s melodramatic, with perfectly timed breaking up of his voice finger pointing at Vernon during the Branscombe news conference serves to qualify him as one.

I don’t exactly view his participation as a public service, more one of an abortive attempt at damage control. The reality was that Branscombe was on the trail and the press conference would have…

Aquaponics gardening is a growing trend that allows families to create a self-sustaining environment that grows vegetables, fruits, flowers and more with as little maintenance as possible.

The first time I was told about aquaponics gardening, I thought it was going to be very dirty and moldy but was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn’t like that at all. Aquaponics gardens can be as small or as large as you’d like it to be. They create enough food in a small space and require very little maintenance.

I don’t update that frequently as I like to be careful with information I post. Folks might rely on my posts for their lives, and the lives of their families, so I put myself in their shoes, and handle posting with responsibility to get info that’s as accurate as I can possibly get and be sure of.

On to the fun stuff…

Now, this is something Husband and I have been experimenting with for a while, and while our work is somewhat experimental in reegards to seeking improvements, the basics plan works and works well enough.

A part of Custer’s strategy was to attack the Southern Cheyenne encampment and take as many women, children, and the aged as possible to employ as a human shield, knowing that warriors wouldn’t mount a counter attack for fear of endangering them.

We’ve seen similar tactics throughout history, and more commonly now in the middle east where rocket or mortar emplacements are setup in the midst of non combatant civilians, in hospitals and school yards-it is a cowardly thing to do now and then.

Sand Creek 1864, and the Washita 1868

Two notable events in the history of the Cheyenne and the nations at large as it was part of a prolonged campaign conducted by the U.S. government to defeat and oppress indigenous people in this land.

Sand Creek was particularly heinous as it was directed at an encampment led by Black Kettle who had pledged peace, and even while under attack waved an American flag given to them.

The death toll on that day has been estimated in excess of a hundred sixty people-the majority of them women and children. Of the men who were in the camp they had remained there while younger more able men had rode off to hunt.

   I saw the bodies of those lying there cut all to pieces, worse mutilated than any I ever saw before; the women cut all to pieces … With knives; scalped…

THE WINTU

In speaking of events like Sand Creek or Wounded Knee I make an effort to tell people that such things weren’t restricted to either the Cheyenne or Sioux, that it is a shared history among all the nations.

In speaking of events like Sand Creek or Wounded Knee I make an effort to tell people that such things weren’t restricted to either the Cheyenne or Sioux, that it is a shared history among all the nations.

A lesser known, though no less heinous offense occurred among the Wintu and Nomsuu when they were invited in 1850 to a “friendship feast” and fed poison resulting in a hundred and forty five deaths.

The following year in what became known as the Bridge Gulch Massacre an additional one hundred and fifty innocent Wintu men, women, and children were killed in reprisal for the death of Col. John Anderson.

In saying we are all related it is the shared misery and suffering that has defined and bound us together.

Interesting to follow the AIM money trail and the tactics employed-from Federal grants, individual churches, the World Council of Churches, Libya, and even communist organizations.
An accurate accounting will probably never be made but to look at conditions on the rez during their fifteen minutes it’s obvious little of it trickled down to the people who needed it.

An accurate accounting will probably never be made but to look at conditions on the rez during their fifteen minutes it’s obvious little of it trickled down to the people who needed it.

And what makes a sham of so much of their high rhetoric is their absolute willingness to align themselves with repressive governments like Libya, Venezuela, and Russia-all the while beating their chests and gushing crocodile tears about oppression-anything for a buck.

Below is a link to an article-I would direct your attention to the lower left section at the bottom of the article that says Reference: Renegades, clicking on that will download a pdf containing a May 1973 article by Susan  L.M. Huck, a contributing editor to The Review Of The News.

These are photos taken of Wilbur Riegert, one within the Wounded Knee Museum that he owned and operated for years and was ransacked, looted, and ultimately set on fire by AIM, and the other at his home.

The third photo is of Martha Bad Warrior.

I’d like everyone to take a close look at this aged wheelchair bound elder who was targeted by AIM during it’s Reign of Terror known as WK2 and ask themselves if what he endured, even to being thrown out of his residence, was an act of warriors, or could in anyway be justified?

Does it look as though he could pose a physical threat to anyone? Does it look like he would?

From all accounts Wilbur was a kind and generous man, respected within the Pine Ridge community-his character I think is written on his face.

Every time I view this photo of Wilbur Riegert, founder and now deceased owner of the Wounded Knee Museum I experience a variety of emotions.

An elderly wheelchair bound grandfather evicted from his home by Assholes In Moccasins so that the great “warrior, liberator, statesman” Russell Means could have an office and place to flop his sorry ass during their modern day reenactment of Wounded Knee.

These same Assholes In Moccasins ransacked the museum and then went about systematically destroying it.

In the years following WK2 they have made every effort to portray their “cause” as a righteous one, and to portray Riegert and the Gildersleeves as vampires feasting on the poverty of Pine Ridge.

The greater ignorance and infamy may be those within and without the media who have pointedly ignored the realities, swept them under the journalistic rug, and perpetuated the lies they were spoonfed.

CHILDREN OF MEN REDUX

It is said American’s have a penchant for rooting for the underdog-if so it has taken them a while to realize that is the status of the nations, now that they have they throw their support behind the dogs that are barking the loudest, those that are most visible.

CHILDREN OF MEN
Posted by rezinate on February 17, 2012

https://rezinate.wordpress.com/2012/02/17/children-of-men/

When you shuttle back and forth between sites like Annie’s page, Ray’s page, and the Peltier Still Guilty site there is a noticable ramping up of discussion, of facts and evidence being presented, making it increasingly more difficult for the deniers to offer anything credible in the way of a defense. Which then lends itself to the predictable name calling.

There is a cross section, a diversity not only of opinion but ethnicity and awareness emerging-that is a good thing, because the cultivated base for the free Leonard, free Graham, free whoever, has always been primarily the non indigenous, for a couple of obvious reasons.

One being that as a rule they generally are better off financially, the other is any familiarity they may have with rez life and the issues indigenous people face can be said to be…

You can demonstrate but if it isn’t sustained and grows what good is that?

Point in case the Occupy movement.

Boycotts are an effective tool, but people apparently aren’t willing to “sacrifice” that pumpkin spiced latte at Starbucks inspite of the fact that Starbucks has joined forces with Monsanto in a suit to strip states of the ability to clearly label what a product contains.

American consumers are the fatted calf that believes entitlement is a way way of life – unaware or preferring to ignore that the fatted calf is offered up as a sacrifice to feed the gluttony of corporate greed.

For the most part economics and personal finance for the nations are about putting food on the table, heat in the winter, and clothes on the back of their children, that and little else.

A lot is made of that and should be, but such conditions aren’t confined to the rez or urban communities, it is a growing demographic playing no favorites among ethnicities.

A reality related to the consumer marketplace from the price of bananas to gasoline.

Any benefits accrued from the drop in oil prices have historically been offset when they begin going back up.

That usually translates to exceeding a previous price per gallon to recoup that lost profit margin and then dropping down somewhat as the hue and cry is raised.

A transparent game routinely becoming the way of it with the thought in mind that if gas is four dollars per gallon and drops to…
