Rapid City, South Dakota (Dec. 21, 2014) -- In light of the recent tragic events that have transpired at Lakota Homes and that have claimed the life of our son, brother, father, partner, grandson, uncle and loved one, we feel it imperative to issue a public statement asking the Rapid City and Native community at-large to bear with us as we grieve our loss and make arrangements for our loved one.
We genuinely appreciate the prayer vigils and ceremony circles that are being organized in Allen’s memory; this is a crucial time for our family as Allen is making his spirit journey.
We feel the community’s hurt; we know you are angry, we know you are sad and we know everyone is on edge as a result of Allen’s violent death coming off the heals of his participation in the #NativeLivesMatter Anti-Police Brutality Rally and March a day before this horrific incident. There are many details that we will share in time but we are trying very hard to hold it together and to be strong and peaceful in order to send our loved one off and to give our children an appropriate holiday’s memory.
We ask that everyone respect the families privacy at this time. There are critical issues currently pending including an autopsy, internal investigation, a meeting with the Mayor and Rapid City Police Chief and a prayer gathering outside the mayor’s office during that meeting at 10am MST, Monday, Dec. 22, 2014.
Allen was many things to many people and he would want us to remain peaceful and prayerful during this most trying time for our family. Again, we sincerely appreciate all the love, feelings, prayers and energy that you are sending our way. This makes the difference and it is our hope that we can end this violence against our Native people here in Rapid City. Allen was a Sun Dancer and we want all prayer families, medicine men, spiritual leaders and sundancers to come and pray for our family and to keep Allen and his loved ones in your prayers.

Native Lives Matter protest in Rapid City was peaceful, after police initially denied permit for rally to protest racial profiling.

Mohawk Nation News 'Canada's Final Solution'

CANADA’S FINAL SOLUTION

mnnlogo1

Please post & distribute. Nia:wen.
MNN, Dec. 21, 2014. Why negotiation tables, war department of Indian Affairs and special military trained police and surveillance strategies? Why does the corporation of Canada have to pass illegal laws to take from and remove us? They, in effect, acknowledge that we are the sovereigns of Ono’ware:geh. To try to have control over us, take and have dominion over all of our land and possessions, they plan is to kill us off once and for all.
US $9 trillion cemetary fund!!
US $9 trillion cemetary fund!!

2014 is the 90th year of their “100-year plan” to complete their annihilation of Ongwe’ho:weh that was started in 1924. The illegal Indian lands acts were passed in every province. It is called the “final solution of the INDIAN problem” and put into effect by Duncan Campbell Scott. The Nazis turned our communities into POW camps. Our children were kidnapped and put into residential school death camps and murdered. They thought by now life would be so unlivable that we would go willingly to their slaughter houses. Stephen Harper of the Nazi faction of the Corporation of Canada is trying to carry out the final ten years of the final solution.
The corporate INDIANS [the band councils, provincial and territorial organizations, and those who vote for them] have willingly assimilated. Ongwe’ho:weh, the true natural people of the land, have not. We were forcibly labeled as INDIANS through illegal laws, coercion, starvation and death. We were placed on Ono’ware:geh since the beginning of time. Our Mother Earth always reminded us to exist according to the natural laws of the land.
The INDIANS, as part of the settler population, help CANADA commit the genocide and to illegally sign away our possessions and lands. The settler population have not stood with us against this planned serial killing of the Ongwe’ho:weh.
The Hague trial for these criminal acts is coming soon. We have a duty to create a future for the coming faces. We will resist at every turn. Nazi Canada will collapse! Deganawida told us that the black serpent would see us healing in the hilly country and say, “We don’t have any fight with you”. We will see true peace. As Pink Floyd states: “Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anybody home?”

How One Indigenous Woman Took On a Multinational Mining Corporation... And Won

Indigenous Peruvian farmworker Maxima Acuña de Chaupe withstood violent eviction attempts, beatings, and a legal battle to protect her land from being turned into an open-pit gold mine

For over three years, indigenous Peruvian farmworker Maxima Acuña de Chaupe has refused to allow a U.S.-based multinational corporation to turn her land into an open-pit gold mine, withstanding multiple violent eviction attempts by corporate and state agents.
On Wednesday, Acuña de Chaupe finally saw victory when a Peruvian appeals court struck down a lawsuit levied by the Yanacocha mine—which is 51 percent owned by Colorado's Newmont Mining Corporation—that had sought to expel and imprison the family for "invading" their own land.
