Among the Indians There Have Been no Written Laws

Among the Indians there have been no written laws. Customs handed down from generation to generation have been the only laws to guide them. Every one might act different from what was considered right did he choose to do so, but such acts would bring upon him the censure of the Nation…. This fear of the Nation’s censure acted as a mighty band, binding all in one social, honorable compact. – Tecumseh Shawnee

All native, tribal cultures have their essences deeply rooted in the land from where they come from.

They also worship forces of nature that are the sources of the lives they live. They are very elemental, rising from nature and ending up as dust in it.

Native Americans are no different from other tribal culture in their intense essence of
life and their fundamental spiritualisms. As a result, spiritual thinkers and
enthusiasts have always been drawn towards their rituals.

One of their magic’s primary aim is healing. This arises from the essential and fundamental need for all human beings to protect themselves. This urge for self-protection has always made people resort to the supernatural.

This particular healing rite comes from the need to be reborn: to kill the toxic habit that bound your old self down and to regain new feathers for your soul to fly again. Like a phoenix, rising from the ashes, cleansed of all spiritual fatigue and tiredness.

But one thing we must remind you of. And this is not to be taken lightly especially in the case of magic and conjuring. Every kind of magic/conjuring is a risky business because we deal with things from other realms. So it is advised that you take the advice of a professional practitioner.

Now the rite.

First of all, water. Take a shower to cleanse your body, mind, soul and vibe. Next, use a cleansing herb like sage or something else whose aroma makes you feel at home and fumigate yourself with its gentle aroma and mild smoke.

Thirdly, meditate on your spirit animal. Your guardian angels take bestial forms to protect you from harm and only through meditation can they be reached. They are also known as totem spirits, often represented on wood pillars called totem poles.

And finally, chant this:

‘Mother, sing me a song, that will ease my pain, 
Mend broken bones, bring wholeness again. 
Catch my babies, when they are born, 
Sing my death song, teach me how to mourn.
Show me the Medicine of the healing herbs, 
The value of spirit, the way I can serve. 
Mother, heal my heart so that I can see
The gifts of yours that can live through me.’

The Strange Origin of Corn ~ Abenaki Legend

A long time ago, when the Indians were first made, one man lived alone, far from any others. He did not know fire, and so he lived on roots, bark, and nuts. This man became very lonely for companionship. He grew tired of digging roots, lost his appetite, and for several days lay dreaming in the sunshine. When he awoke, he saw someone standing near and, at first, was very frightened.

But when he heard the stranger’s voice, his heart was glad, and he looked up. He saw a beautiful woman with long light hair! “Come to me,” he whispered. But she did not, and when he tried to approach her, she moved farther away. He sang to her about his loneliness, and begged her not to leave him.

At last she replied, “If you will do exactly what I tell you to do, I will also be with you.”

He promised that he would try his very best. So she led him to a place where there was some very dry grass. “Now get two dry sticks,” she told him, “and rub them together fast while you hold them in the grass.”

Soon a spark flew out. The grass caught fire, and as swiftly as an arrow takes flight, the ground was burned over. Then the beautiful woman spoke again: “When the sun sets, take me by the hair and drag me over the burned ground.”

“Oh, I don’t want to do that!” the man exclaimed.

“You must do what I tell you to do,” said she. “Wherever you drag me, something like grass will spring up, and you will see something like hair coming from between the leaves. Soon seeds will be ready for your use.”

The man followed the beautiful woman’s orders. And when the Indians see silk on the cornstalk, they know that the beautiful woman has not forgotten them.

Native American | Pre-Columbian Inhabitants of North and South America and Their Descendants

~

Native Americans (also called Aboriginal Americans, American Indians, Amerindians or indigenous peoples of America) are the people and their descendants, who were in the Americas when Europeans arrived. There are many different tribes of Native American people, with many different languages. There are more than three million Native Americans in Canada and the U.S. combined. About 51 million Native Americans live in Latin America.

Sometimes these people are called Indians, but this is confusing, because it is the same word used for people from India. When Christopher Columbus explored, he did not know about the Americas. He was in the Caribbean but thought he was in the East Indies, so he called the people Indians.

Many Native Americans died after the Europeans came to the Americas, from diseases that came with the Europeans that were new to the Native Americans, in battle with the Europeans or because the Europeans made them work as slaves. Most of the native people were hurt or killed by settlers who took their lands.

The ancestors of Native Americans came to the Americas from Asia. Some of them may have come to America over 12,000 years ago when Alaska was connected to Siberia by the Bering land bridge.

Some Native American tribes of North America are Cherokee, Iroquois, Maya or Yucatec, Aztecs, Navajo and Sioux.

Some Native American tribes of South America are Aymara, Guarani, Quechua and Tupi.

Trail Of Tears

bfsblog33

~

The Trail of Tears was a series of forced relocations of Native Americans in the United States from their ancestral homelands in the Southeastern United States, to areas to the west (usually west of the Mississippi River) that had been designated as Indian Territory. The forced relocations were carried out by government authorities following the passage of the Indian Removal Act in 1830. The relocated peoples suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while en route to their new designated reserve, and many died before reaching their destinations. The forced removals included members of the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations, as well as their African slaves. The phrase “Trail of Tears” originates from a description of the removal of many Native American tribes, including the infamous Cherokee Nation relocation in 1838.

Between 1830 and 1850, the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, Seminole, and Cherokee people (including mixed-race and black slaves who lived among them) were forcibly removed from their traditional lands in the Southeastern United States, and relocated farther west. Those Native Americans who were relocated were forced to march to their destinations by state and local militias. The Cherokee removal in 1838 (the last forced removal east of the Mississippi) was brought on by the discovery of gold near Dahlonega, Georgia in 1828, resulting in the Georgia Gold Rush. Approximately 2,000–8,000 of the 16,543 relocated Cherokee perished along the way.

In 1830, a group of Indians collectively referred to as the Five Civilized Tribes (the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee, and Seminole tribes) were living as autonomous nations in what would be later called the American Deep South. The process of cultural transformation, as proposed by George Washington and Henry Knox, was gaining momentum, especially among the Cherokee and Choctaw.

American settlers had been pressuring the federal government to remove Indians from the Southeast; many settlers were encroaching on Indian lands, while others wanted more land made available to European (‘Caucasian’/’white’) settlers. Although the effort was vehemently opposed by some, including U.S. Congressman Davy Crockett of Tennessee, President Andrew Jackson was able to gain Congressional passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830, which authorized the government to extinguish Indian title to lands in the Southeast.

In 1831, the Choctaw became the first Nation to be removed, and their removal served as the model for all future relocations. After two wars, many Seminoles were removed in 1832. The Creek removal followed in 1834, the Chickasaw in 1837, and lastly the Cherokee in 1838. Some managed to evade the removals, however, and remained in their ancestral homelands; some Choctaw are living in Mississippi, Creek in Alabama and Florida, Cherokee in North Carolina, and Seminole in Florida. A small group of Seminole, fewer than 500, evaded forced removal; the modern Seminole Tribe of Florida is descended from these individuals. A small number of non-Native Americans who lived with the tribes, including some of African descent (including over 4,000 slaves, and others as spouses or freedmen), also accompanied the Indians on the trek westward. By 1837, 46,000 Indians from the southeastern states had been removed from their homelands, thereby opening 25 million acres (100,000 km2) for predominantly European settlement.

Prior to 1838, the fixed boundaries of these autonomous tribal nations, comprising large areas of the United States, were subject to continual cession and annexation, in part due to pressure from squatters and the threat of military force in the newly declared U.S. territories—federally administered regions whose boundaries supervened upon the Native treaty claims. As these territories became U.S. states, state governments sought to dissolve the boundaries of the Indian nations within their borders, which were independent of state jurisdiction, and to expropriate the land therein. These pressures were exacerbated by U.S. population growth and the expansion of slavery in the South, with the rapid development of cotton cultivation in the uplands following the invention of the cotton gin.

Subject in Email : Human Rights Violations in Cameroon Prison

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

Dear Ms. Daoud:

RE George Mfor Tang
       Political Prisoner
       Konengui Central Prison

I am writing to bring your attention to the matter of Mr. George Mfor Tang.

George Mfor Tang hails from the English speaking region of Cameroon which constitutes circa 20% of the country’s population.

Before his internment, Mr. Tang was already involved in the Ambazonian struggle against the oppressive governance of the Biya regime and the massive economic exploitation of Southern Cameroon which produces 80% of the Cameroon’s natural resources.

Since his internment and given the disintegration of his entire family–many of whom have simply disappeared–he has hardened his stance on the need for the independence of Southern Cameroon and, indeed, views independence as his “only religion and salvation.”

He was kidnapped by government forces in Camaroon on 3rd July, 2017 and later transferred to Konengui central prison in Yaounde, where he has been subjected to all manner of physical and mental torture.

His family is untraceable at present: I assume because of the ongoing persecution by the forces of President Biya.

LA REPUBLIC AND THEIR SILENCING STRATEGY TO EXTINGUISH OUR COURSE.
La Republique du Cameroon is using whatever ruthless method to killing and imprisoning whosoever in Ambazonia who standing wants to raise a voice against their brutality towards the Ambazonian people. The world should come to our aid and put this despot Biya and his cronies to order:

La Republigue Military Tribunal: The Enslavement Continues

Scores of Wum residents who were arrested following an uprising that erupted in the town in January, have been hurled to Yaounde to face a military tribunal. More than 19 arrested persons who have been in custody at a detention facility in Bamenda for close to three months were ferried to Yaounde on April 20 at night.

Violence erupted in Wum in January after irate youths burnt down army barracks alongside military hardware, including vehicles, in Waindo village, to avenge the death of a one Ngong Leonard, a commercial bike rider who was reportedly stabbed to death by a soldier.

Though charges are yet to be leveled against them, we gathered that the suspects are most likely to be charged for disrupting public peace and inciting an insurrection.

What is wrong with Anglophone courts? Why carry them from Anglophone Cameroon to La Republique to face trial? The people need a fair trial too.

GEOTANG#4

Those are activist who were arrested by government forces in early 2015.  One of them is Oben Maxwell. These guys were some of the first scnc members who were first put in prison by the Biya regime.
