Mohawk Nation News 'Indian Ring'

INDIAN RINGPosted on May 31, 2016
Please post & distribute. MNN. May 30, 2016. The INDIAN Ring meticulously planned the genocide of onkwe’hon:weh in North and South America and now the world over. They schemed how to extinct us. “Hey, where are all those starving, unarmed men, women and children?” Thomas Tibbles wrote this historical book, HIDDEN POWER. A SECRET HISTORY OF THE INDIAN RING, based on events in the early 1800s. [p. 282] He said, “this Indian system is the most cunningly devised scheme for permitting robbery and tyranny that the mind of man ever devised.” Everybody is under “the control of a ring of robbers, murderers and speculators”. It is “…a government of a band of white thieves”. The criminals are politicians, churches, army officers, agents, traders, inspectors, scouts, lawyers, judges, missionaries, contractors, business people, bureaucrats, settlers and INDIAN sell-outs. [p. 283] “The only force that can be brought to bear on them is that of the army, …which i…

The Tribe filed its complaint prior to a hearing on the two bills, H.R. 4366 (Rep. David Valadao) and H.R. 5217 (Rep. Jim Costa, D-CA), held by the U.S. House of Representative Natural Resources Committee Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans. The video is posted now at:

Thank you Yvonne Swan for sharing this petition for clemency for Leonard Peltier!

Granting freedom to a Native American Indian--a Lakota/Ojibwa--after he has done forty (40) years hard time in federal prison for crimes he did not commit will at last show the world community there is compassion and humaneness in the United States of America.

Benjamin Nuvamsa: Grassroots Hopi and Tewa Senom Defense of Water Rights

"The Hopi Tribal Council is not informing the Hopi and Tewa Senom of what it is doing ... Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and others are determined to take our water rights away. Former Sen. Jon Kyl tried hard before he retired." -- Former Hopi Chairman Benjamin Nuvamsa

By Benjamin Nuvamsa Censored News
To the editor, June 15, 2012 was a historic day for the Hopi Tribe. On this day, the Hopi and Tewa Senom stood in solidarity as “One Nation: One Voice” to oppose the proposed Senate Bill 2109, the Navajo and Hopi Little Colorado River Water Rights Act of 2012. The Hopi Tribal Council passed Resolution No. H-072-2012 to formally oppose the bill. Resolution H-072-2012 provides that further and separate negotiations shall not continue without full and open consultation with the Hopi and Tewa Villages, Hopi Senom and the Hopi Tribal Council. Sadly, however, the Hopi Tribal Council, in a unilateral action, purported to “repeal” the resolution June 21, 2012 by p…

By Brenda Norrell

The New York Times reveals how billionaires have taken control of much of the US media -- billionaires tied to politicians, casinos, the Mormon Church, sports teams, and more.
The New York Times article does not cover how the national Indian country media is now controlled by casino dollars and relies primarily on stay-at-home plagiarizers.
