The Keystone Pipeline is slated to cut directly through some of the most highly sacred of a number of Native American tribal Lands. With Congress back in session, and a preponderance of legislators in favor of the pipeline, this issue is going to be opened once again to a firestorm of vitriolic hate speech from big moneyed mouthpieces with profit margins on the line.

Again and again since the first settler set foot on this continent, we have disrespected, robbed, lied to, defrauded and of course MURDERED the Native peoples of this land.

The fact that these SACRED lands are now being robbed from their rightful owners is a recent issue of extremely high visibility compared to the widely unreported desecration of millions of acres of tribal lands that has gone before it. But to take these particular areas of sacred land can be compared to a mining company buying up Jesus’ tomb to mine for gold, or bulldozing Mecca and then just cavalierly stating “well we are giving you another big pile of rocks to replace this one, and we guarantee they will be of the exact same quality of the rocks in this tomb” or “the land we just bulldozed.”

The perpetuation of the view of inferiority of tribal nations in America will never stop for one very simple, elementary reason: we have murdered the greatest percentage of native peoples and continue to this very day to herd the remainder of them into ghettos (reservations) where we still pour in gallons of liquor and kilos of drugs in attempts to keep that remainder incapacitated in order to keep them in poverty and to control them.

The tribal economic achievements in casinos etc. are only tolerated by our government in order to give the illusion that we mean only good and positive things for Native Americans. Of course if that were really the case we would cease and desist from these illegal thefts and sales of sacred tribal lands and other fraudulent and heinous acts being perpetrated on native peoples throughout the Divided States of America.

Even the miniscule reparations payments recently approved for distribution to Native Americans is insulting, too little and too late.

Last November, Cyril Scott, President of the Rosebud Sioux, proclaimed this to U.S  Legislators:  “The Rosebud Sioux Tribe will not allow this pipeline through our lands. We are outraged at the lack of intergovernmental cooperation. We are a sovereign nation and we are not being treated as such. We will close our reservation borders to Keystone XL. Authorizing Keystone XL is an act of war against our people.”

  1. As usual America has no respect for the people they have injured and whose land they have desecrated. When will their hearts soften even a little. Why are these people so greedy and unashamed?


    1. Yes Rose, you are so right. But as you say, they are greedy and unashamed. There seems to be no end to the arrogance and greed of big business all over the world. But at the same time I believe sooner or later that arrogant avarice will spell our doom as a great nation.
