American Indians Secede from U.S.

The Ancestors of Lakota Indians, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse served notice in Washington, D.C. that treaties signed over 150 years ago are "worthless words on worthless paper," acoording to longtime Native American activist Russell Means.

In keeping with my two part series A Bowl of Oranges, A Golden Compass: or "Bowling for Geronimo" the land seems to be at odds with it's people, and the people at odds with the land.

Means went on to say..."We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us," also stating that the treaties signed have been "repeatedly violated in order to steal our culture, our land and our ability to maintain our way of life,"

The timing of this rebellion is HIGHLY interesting to me, and I will continue to follow this story as it emerges, as well as looking back more at the relationship between us and our own history.

Thanks for reading...a safe Holiday to everyone. Birth of the SUN and all...drink up!

Hi Todd,

I hate to flog a dead Monolith but...

Kubrick made compelling reference to the American Indian in both 'The Shining' and 'Full Metal Jacket'.
Kubrick too gave us a Golden Compass with 'Clockwork'.

I may seem to have gone simple, but I think that Kubrick is right at the center of the Great Mystery tracked so passionately by yourself, Kotze, and Adachi and other talent.

The emerging Amer-Ind motif seems to harken straight to the heart of what ails America. The same manifest destiny that overlooked the Nuremburg Trials overlooks its own ongoing genocide against the American Indian. The connection goes deep...Germans and Norse peoples are positively obsessed with Native American Culture. And along with his interest in the Amer-Ind, Kubrick was famously curious about Nazism.

When it comes to Satanly, no connexion is too oblique.

Merry Christmas Dude,

Da WWWiz

I wish I could join them! - but I suppose I'm already my own country in a lot of ways. (smallest standing army) - but I'm recruiting. ;D

I hope they beat the U.S in a space race to get back to the moon.
