The Year of the Whistleblower 2013

The truth is the one thing that the US can not recover from


Topping the list in Indian country: Buying into dirty coal, the threat of new uranium mining and the roundup of wild horses for slaughter houses, all by the Navajo Nation government

The year of 2013 was the year of the whistleblower. Edward Snowden exposed that the US is spying on, and collecting data, belonging to the world's citizens and diplomats.

A World Bank whistleblower exposed how the financial elite control the world, and bought the media to silence it. Global Research reports, "Karen Hudes is a graduate of Yale Law School and she worked in the legal department of the World Bank for more than 20 years."

"The goal is control. They want all of us enslaved to debt, they want all of our governments enslaved to debt, and they want all of our politicians addicted to the huge financial contributions that they funnel into their campaigns. Since the elite also own all of the big media companies, the mainstream media never lets us in on the secret that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that our system works."

Riders at Wounded Knee on Dec. 28, 2013

By Pte San Win

The riders are moving swiftly. I just love our sacred horse nation. They are so beautiful and powerful. Our babies are so strong and sacred for handling this cold cold wind. Just think relatives our young boys used to go out and do their first hunt on horse back by about 12 years old. Sometimes in the midst of winter. 
Today it is a good day to be LAKOTA and know that we are going to always live. 

Mitakuyapi tonight the riders are camped at Wounded Knee District School. We will be here having speakers and songs throughout the evening. Tomorrow we will be riding to Pine Ridge in remembrance of our relatives who were taken there and left to die at 3 Moccasin Park. We will be riding to Pine Ridge and meeting at Billy Mills Hall to eat. We have relatives who rode all the way from Standing Rock. They are beautiful and strong mitakuyapi.

On December 29, 1890, the Seventh Cavalry massacred Miniconjou Lakota leader Big Foot and 150 of his people at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. In the days leading up to the massacre, Big Foot and his followers rode 300 miles, hoping to find refuge at Pine Ridge.

Ben Carnes 'Remembering Carter Camp'

Carter Camp: R.I.P. 2013

"We Decided that our Indian people are more
important to us than long jail terms."

Carter Camp painted as a warrior at Wounded Knee
Remembering people of their words and actions has been my way of mourning, as a way to keep their spirit alive in our memories. His words above exemplified what it means to commit to being a true Warrior for the people. He lived this way of life as so many people can attest to. Those words take me back to when I began to understand what the American Indian Movement was about in the early 70's. It began as a civil rights organization in Minneapolis in 68, but through the influences of Henry Crow Dog, it soon evolved into a spiritual based movement as Crow Dog stated that in order for AIM to be successful, it had to have a spiritual foundation.
