As noted in our Columbus article, the European arrival on the shores of the New World witnessed Indians doing what most human beings do: fighting each other. The Taino people had migrated north to escape the ravages of the Carib Indians. The same kind of thing was happening all over the Americas, indeed as it happens everywhere in the world, at all times, in all eras of history.
Indians still fight one another today, despite the media-fabricated “unity” hype, the white liberal-funded NGOs for ‘skins,’ the feigned brotherhood of the oppressed, and the racist notion that all non-white people have been wronged by the terrible white race.
Larry Echohawk, as of May 22, 2009 head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, appointed by the the lying black African Communist traitor in the White House, is a member of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma. The Pawnee are known for never going to war against the United States government, and for scouting for the government against other Indian tribes. “Pawnee scouts faithfully and courageously served in the U. S. army during Indian hostilities.” as one account puts it. In other words, they fought with the United States Army against the other Indian tribes. There was a Pawnee Scouts Army Unit by1864, under Major Frank Joshua North. The Pawnee called him Pani Le-Shar, “Chief of the Pawnee.”

So what do we expect from the BIA under a Pawnee? For starters, he declared that the Cherokee Tribe of Oklahoma was “no longer a distinct political entity.” (Naturally the Cherokee protest, and will appeal such preposterous statements.) BadEagle.com discussed months earlier that the recent government pressure on the Cherokee tribe was some sort of Obama “pay-back” for the fact that the Cherokee disenrolled some 2,800 Negroes from their tribe.
But this is related to an even more serious issue: federal recognition. The Surpeme Court of the United States (Carcieri v. Salazar) recently ruled that, unless a tribe was recognized by the federal government before 1934, the will no longer be allowed to purchase land on the fee-to-trust basis, and thus, will not be able to develop any such land with tax-exemption. The land cannot be put into federal trust. (Consider it a crunch on Indian casinos.)
The trend here is to undo the legal status of all American Indians, not just the pop-up, fake tribes with no Indian blood and no historical connection to the name of the tribe they’re using. (BadEagle.com long ago warned against the back-lash that these casino tribes would bring upon all Indians.)
It is just quaint that a Pawnee would be head of the BIA at this time in Indian history in America. Perhaps I’m playing into the dynamic of my own title for this blog, “Indians Against Indians,” but, early on, in January, 2009, some Indians spoke against Larry Echohawk as BIA leader–based on his decisions and policies while the Attorney General (Democrat) of the state of Idaho (1990.) Even then he worked against the legal status (sovereignty) of Indians. He suggested the state amend its constitution to avoid having to negotiate Class III gaming with any Idaho tribes.
And yet, Echohawk managed to get one tribe federal recognition just before the Carcieri decision–the the Match-e-be-nash-she-wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians (the “Gun Lake” tribe). There are tiny Pottawatomi bands all over the midwest, all wanting federal recognition. We have to wonder how some of them have succeeded, and other haven’t. Echohawk actually helped this little Michigan band get their federal recognition, their land, and yes, they do have plans for a casino.
Perhaps Echohawk as the streak of Democrat good-deedism in him, fighting for the little guy, working to destroy the larger tribes. In any case, the Supreme Court will make his Pawnee tradition a lot easier. Fight with the government against all Indians–but especially the largest and longest historically established tribes, like the Cherokee, the Chickasaw, the Seminole, the Creek, and so forth.
