One may find this short Dissertation Important: Manifest Destiny Finally Revealed
USA- Two hundred years ago manifest destiny- a planned execution to wipe out ingenious Native peoples
was an important factor for white folks to realize the execution of the rigorous owners of the land so that
white settlers could settle the land and virtually no one at the time, including Christians would
acknowledge the crimes committed against Native peoples. Although many attempts have been made to
expose the murder of over 100 million people there has been no recondition and no repository. Why; one
may ask and the answer has always been the same. These are not people, “they are wild animals.”
1860’s President Lincoln and General Grant conspired to kill millions on Native people. This is true and
the data is hidden in US government archives. What a world we live in, the whole purpose was to steal
and make way for white settlers. The Native folks have known this for 200 hundred years-and nothing has
been done to make this wrong right.
“According to Lemkin, colonization was in itself “intrinsically genocidal”. He saw this genocide
as a two-stage process, the first being the destruction of the indigenous population’s way of life.
In the second stage, the newcomers impose their way of life on the indigenous group. According
to David Maybury-Lewis, imperial and colonial forms of genocide are enacted in two main ways,
either through the deliberate clearing of territories of their original inhabitants in order to make
them exploitable for purposes of resource extraction or colonial settlements, or through enlisting
indigenous peoples as forced laborers in colonial or imperialist projects of resource
extraction. The designation of specific events as genocidal is often controversial.”
My adopted father, a prominent Native spokesperson of the Blackfeet Nation storyteller and carrier of the
medicine way said “There are unmarked mass grave sites throughout this country and including Canada
that killed millions of Native school children and adults a like that would not give into forced white led
Only today in 2021 are these atrocities coming to the forefront to reach main- stream Americans. Today
there are mass grave sites being unearthed and the numbers are quite startling.
Why has our government continued to ignore this situation for so long? Embarrassment? Don’t really
care? Or they don’t want to pay out reciprocity that would cost multi billions of dollars?
Let us not forget over one million bison were slaughtered in a two year period of time! Bison was the
main source of protein for indigenous tribes throughout the land.
Back in 1998 the US government offered the Blackfeet Tribe in Northwest Montana thirty billion dollars
to the Blackfeet Tribe to settle a dispute of the ownership of what became Glacier National Park. The
tribe replied ‘no thank you, we will just expect our rightful land rights to our sacred ground back to the
people that they called home for a very long time.” To this day the government still controls the land and
no money has come to the tribe. As a matter of fact the Blackfeet are among the poorest tribe in America
and the food handouts are a sign of continued Manifest Destiny, they receive tainted meat, sugar galore
and their hunting grounds continue to be sequestered.
Although there seems to be a growing movement from whites to get involved and make known this
tragedy- against humanity, with more people pushing for responsibility and reciprocity there may be light
coming from people that see the crimes committed and demand change. We are talking about gentle
people that once roamed this country, hunted and fished and owned nothing but their integrity.
And we ask ourselves what we can do? 1st recognize and apologize. Give what you can, time, energy,
food, clothing and money. Support every effort that makes US history known and do something about it,
because it’s the right thing to do.
What can you do? Get involved! Pick any tribe.
