MNN. Mar. 30, 2016. tehontie’ronions’kweh are INDIAN actors portraying negative images of onkwe’hon:weh. In the 1880s Buffalo Bill Wild West shows in cooperation with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, were wildly popular among white Americans and Europeans. We were paraded around the world as fierce killers without empathy.
The Wild West portrayed the white men as defending his stolen homestead, fighting off wagon train attacks and robberies by INDIANS, killing bisons, reenacting war battles that never happened, INDIANS attacking and burning down their cabins, scalping and murdering their women and children. It was all fiction. It’s what they did to us. The good guys were cowboys, scouts, military and government agents. The INDIANS and Mexicans were evil.
The BIA Great Father selected some onkwe’hon:weh to go among the whites “When it best for Indians to leave their reservations, he will grant them permission and notify their Agent.” We onkwe’hon:weh rode, shot, and whooped our way around the arena, slithering in the background to get a pass to leave the concentration camp called the “reservation”. The Agent was the warden.
Today corporate INDIAN tribal and band councilors and government agents, at the drop of their handler’s hat, will jump into their “INDIAN” costumes to pose with a politician. tsinihatiierha is not us. They are rotinonkwenti’sereh, they are low and crawl like a serpent on their bellies, who won’t expose themselves but we know who they are. In the 1970’s the rotiskenrakete [men] exposed these theatrical treasonous sell-outs.
Sitting Bull said of his time with Buffalo Bill that he was sick of the houses, noise, and multitudes of people. In the cities, he saw poor people begging on the streets. He was shocked to realize that the Americans did not take care of people in need. He gave away much of the money he earned to street beggars. What he saw never changed. Today’s corporate INDIANS are fraudulently pocketing what belongs to us. The other term is “Hang around the fort INDIANS’ who are fed and paid off by the white man.
Hollywood continued to portray us as evil warring savages of a vanishing people to justify their theft of our land and genocide of our people.
Today these “Museum INDIANS” are cowards with power. They are the “Step and fetch it” for the white man of the incorporated Iroquois Confederacy, with no regard for the generations to come. There are two kinds of INDIANS, the “House Indians” and the “Field Warriors”.
Today in ono’ware:geh the pow wows are the evolution of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show! It’s easy to recognize Buffalo Bill INDIANS today. When they are summoned by their political masters in Ottawa and Washington for photo ops, they dress up like Christmas Trees, with feathers and beads as their decorations.
Will Smith plays a Black Buffalo Bill. When he sings “Once upon a time in the West, madman lost his damn mind in the West. We goin’ straight to the Wild Wild West. When I stroll into the Wild Wild West”.
