Charles Benjamin Hawkins These tribes did not all exist at the same period of time in history.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins There is no such thing as illegal immigration, only illegal infiltration by enemies of the state; human beings are free and totally legal until a government or civilization comes along that says otherwise and try’s to use the military to forcibly subjugate people or their societies to make them conform to a certain culture or law.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins To fight over the land displays a lack of wisdom and no respect for our humanity. Immigration must be a human inalienable right if we are to remain a free people.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins To deny the right of immigration to humanity, is to cause unecessary deaths through starvation or exposure to harsh weather; which is a crime against humanity.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins Greed over the land creates an injustice against humanity through a propagation of unecessary human conflicts over something that should be shared by all.
Unecessary conflicts then will erupt as people will naturally fight over the land in their own shameful stupidity.
The land must belong to everyone or no one will survive as the weather forces us into human migrations.
Monopolies over the land and injustice caused by corruption are another form of weather that can cause human migrations.
As we act out in hostilities against another it causes human migrations which brings shame upon our humanity.
Only by being the more mature people that understands our humanity is what matters, how we choose to treat others, can we hope to change the negative weather of the world that forces people to become immigrants.
Everyone on this land mass is either the decedent of an immigrant or became an immigrant for the chance at a better way of life.
Native tribes were also immigrants to America in the begining.
The tribes grew in size as new people joined with their tribes, the tribes became stronger and larger over time.
Modernized civilization went through the same process before exploring the world for new lands.
Everyone on this earth is an immigrant. Human migrations are an inalienable right.
They bring same upon their selves because they don’t understand that human beings all have the same right to live and eat.
Wars are caused by greedy people with no love in their hearts, no considerations for their humanity.
Human decency makes the difference between a bad person or a good person, a great society or a civilization that fails because of poor leadership.
Ignorance or greed only creates human shame and misery.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins Spain isn’t America.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins Spain went through its own troubles as a result of its brutality towards native tribes.
Thus is the lesson of wisdom in life and death, of human compassion or decency.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins Two tribes that fight over the same lands both destroy their selves in their own stupidity, nations that fight with each other cause innocent people to die unecessarily. Humanity deserves better then the ignorance of injustice and the brutality of warfare over the land.
Charles Benjamin Hawkins Religion trys to reason with and support the starving masses oppressed by monopolies over the land. Finances so often fail as society becomes too greedy and dictators are toppled by an angry mob. Militaries live and die in their own blunders fighting other nations they are not able to understand.
People that seek riches or wealth of land and property, die in their own stupidity and then are no more in this world, our true enemy is human greed which propagates in the hearts or minds of evil people.
One greedy person dies but another one is born, only a monopoly over the technologies they use to stay ahead of others can anyone ever hope to end the rotten source of greed, which is money and power; however in that pursuit we also become greedy and stupid and foolishly bring about our own demise.
I’ve worked for many decades to reason with humanity about the negative effects of human greed. How it can corrupt the human heart and poison the land.
But the people stupidly do not listen to reason as they are so easily enticed by their greedy desires over commodities or property.
It is greed that destroys nations, greed that destroys tribes, greed that brings about a person’s untimely demise.
It is greed and a lack of respect for the land and our humanity that destroys the earth.

In response, my friend asked if it was time to “get over” these long-ago events and focus on what really matters.
Cue the crickets.
I know my friend means well. I think when people, like her, drop the “get over it” bomb, they are trying to prove how much they care about what’s occupying my headspace — even though it seems more like they’re trying to tell me what’s important.
But this phrase gets tossed around too frequently for people who have experienced trauma.
I want to talk about why these past wrongs still very much impact Native lives today, why telling us to “get over it” doesn’t help, and direct your attention to what can help.
1. Remember Wounded Knee, Sand Creek, and the Dakota 38
These three events were once considered great victories by the US government, and medals of honor and other accolades were awarded to some of the soldiers who participated.
This was partly because all three occurred during the government’s Indian removal period spurred by Manifest Destiny (the idea of a superior nation expanding its borders westward to promote Christianity and ridding the land of Indian savagery). Many saw these victories as a means to progress.
But these were massacres — acts of genocide that killed hundreds of men, women, and children in the dead of winter and demoralized generations of Native people. The government-sanctioned slaughter of innocents outside of wartime proved a winning strategy against tribal people.
Learning about these events can help explain why some Native people have difficultly reconciling these horrors with the festivities around us. I will provide the bare bone essentials of what happened below, but I implore you to visit the links for full histories.
Jag EnsingDakota 38
After the short-lived US-Dakota War of 1862 — fought to control territory and resources – the government convicted and sentenced 300 Dakota warriors to death for their parts in the war. President Abraham Lincoln stepped in, taking issue with the spotty “evidence” against the convicted. In the end, 38 of the prisoners of war were hanged.
The hero worship of Lincoln is baffling when you consider the context. After the Civil War ended, not one Confederate leader or soldier was condemned to die under Lincoln. But on December 26, 1862, he ordered what reigns as the largest mass execution in US history for the Dakota 38 in Mankato, Minnesota.
Jag EnsingSand Creek
Heeding calls for friendly Indians to take refuge (or risk being exterminated as a perceived hostiles), about 1,000 Cheyenne and Arapaho allies — including women, children, and the elderly — made camp at Sand Creek in Colorado to talk peace with authorities.
As the sun rose on November 29, 1864, troops led by Colonel John Chivington attacked the camp, despite the US and white flags being flown above lodges and waived by those fleeing.
In the end, at least 150 Native people were slaughtered. Troops burned the village and paraded their victims’ body parts to showcase the victory in Denver.
Jag EnsingWounded Knee
The last of whatever resistance Native people carried bled out on December 29, 1890, when the US Army’s 7th Calvary surrounded a refuge-seeking, cold, and starving band of Lakota near Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota.
Most sources say a shot rang out, allegedly from the Native side, and the cavalry opened fire. It’s estimated anywhere from 150 to 300 Native people were massacred and many were laid in a mass grave; the military lost 25 men.
It’s important to note that each of the 560-plus tribes still around the US today have their own histories and traumas that are separate from those of the above mentioned Dakota, Cheyenne, Arapaho, and Lakota peoples.
Those three histories in no way cover the depth of the atrocities Native people suffered and remember — including the Long Walk of the Navajo, the Cherokee Trail of Tears, the Pequot (or Mystic) Massacres, the Gnadenhutten Massacre, the Washita Massacre, and the Garrison Dam. The list is expansive.
2. Don’t Tell Me to Get Over It
It’s interesting: I talk about the events of mass hanging and massacres in my people’s history, and I’m told to “get over it.” But mention Pearl Harbor or 9/11, and the rallying cry is “Never forget!”
Why the double standard?
Jag Ensingthere was no greater evil inflicted upon Native people than the forced removal of their children into government and church-run boarding schools.
I have relatives who are products of Indian boarding schools, and I’ve listened to and researched first-person accounts of the abuse and destruction children and babies endured. I am talking about the rape, physical and emotional torture, and starvation of our most innocent and vulnerable beings.
People think the Hunger Games is some far-off dystopian future, but the metaphor for real-life events is there. ……..Taté Walker is a Contributing Writer for Everyday Feminism.

Jag Ensing DON’T TELL ME TO ‘GET OVER IT’ AND ‘STOP LIVING IN THE PAST’ – WHEN YOU ARE PART OF WHAT IS DENYING ME AN EQUITABLE FUTURE! by Damon Corrie…….http://lastrealindians.com/dont-tell-me-to-get-over-it…/
American native tribes are well cared for and protected.
They have reservations and government subsidies.
Life is a do or die sinario, we must adapt to the times or perish with time.
What should a more civilized society that believes in justice do when it sees an atrocities or an injustice carried out in savagery?
Judy Gilman Our Mistake!
The pilgrims needed the Natives just as much as the natives needed the pilgrims. Together they forged a stronger nation that eventually became the united states of America.
But often as history shows newer generations fail to properly remember the past and ignorantly choose to hold on to hatred instead of peace.

Native American Shuts Down Immigration Protest
Published on Feb 10, 2013
“A Native American man criticized protesters at an Arizona rally against illegal immigration, calling them the real “illegals” for invading his country and killing Native Americans when Europeans first settled on US soil.
“You’re all f*cking illegal. You’re all illegal,” the Native American man yelled at the protesters, who had gathered in Tucson, Arizona to demonstrate their opposition to illegal immigration by Central and South Americans. “We didn’t invite none of you here. We’re the only native Americans here.”*
A Native American man protested an anti illegal immigrant protest in Arizona by pointing out the protestors hypocrisy. “Get on with your bogus arguments. We’re the only legal ones here,” he yelled. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss.
