As we enter this holiday season it is hard to find joy when people are in the midst of struggle. The fact an Arizona auction house, (Allard Auctions, Mesa AZ.), could consider auctioning off Sioux Scalps on ebay has spoken volumes about our reality. It is absolutely appalling that we (Native Americans) are still more a curio and a novelty item rather than human beings. Our women are still considered sexual items rather then givers of life by non Native men. With statistics where 7 out of 10 assaults on Native women are perpetrated by non Native men, it is hard to ignore. This statistic is shared in Canada as well. How could anyone be so callous and have total disregard for theremains of human beings? How could you place a price tag on the dismembered remnants of a person who was butchered in cold blood?

Then there is the on going struggle of the Western Shoshone Nation with the Treaty of Ruby Valley of 1865 which includes Mount Tenabo. They have been under assault over tribal land for many years as it is. Now a most sacred site, Mt. Tenabo, is under assault as gold fever enters the mix. I still think it's ironic the company who wants to mine tribal land is named Cortez Mining Company though. As if the Shoshone Nation does not exist, this company is trying to influence the US Government into simply tossing out the Treaty of 1865. It's only a bunch of Natives so why should we honor this silly obsolete document anyway? There is gold in them there hills and no sacred ground or ancient traditions should stand in the way.

Seems the policy of lying and reneging on treaties has been the norm since the time our people made first contact with these immigrants from across the Great Pond. Unfortunately for us, we actually took them for their word and thought they would honor this funny piece of paper called a treaty. Black Kettle, with the US Flag and the Flag of truce waving in the air, held up a treaty with "The Great White Fathers" signature on this paper. But Chivington and his band of drunken soldiers killed and butchered my people in a little place called Sand Creek, CO. Later our people were almost exterminated along the Washita River OK., by George Armstrong Custer. The atrocities told from our oral tradition is far more perverse and bloody then you will ever read in history books. Cutting the bellies open of expectant mom's and carving out the still born infant then cutting them to shreds to the joy of his soldiers while saying, "Knits make lice" was bad enough. But for soldiers to take infants who still could not speak, have sex with them then cut them to pieces was yet another part of our oral history not in all the history books. And it gets much worse indeed.

And here we are in the 21st Century and the Shoshone people are fighting to make the US Government honor their treaty. It is absolutely appalling they should be struggling with this issue in the first place. How can this be happening when civilization is supposed to be so advanced and educated? How can this nation call themselves leaders of the free world when Native people are being subjugated, lied to and left to live in third world conditions? How can they save the world from tyranny when their actions mirror that of Adolph Hitler and Saddam Hussein in the treatment of Indigenous people within the confines of these boarders?

How could we possibly forgive and forget when we are still under assault from Corporate America and the public at large? Some people tell us to get over it and quite being such a baby. How can we forget the many treaties that never were honored or simply cancelled? How can we forget the billions owed our nations that simply have disappeared? Our children are dying of despair and found Meth and Alcohol to self medicate the PTSD's that haunt every Indigenous person with the America's and possibly the world.

Oh Canada and their judicial folly of dropping charges on 18 RCMP Constables for raping Native childrensimply because of the statute of limitations last year. I remember the case very well since there were protests in Vancouver over that issue. But to the chagrin of tribal leaders the Crown dropped all charges. Ask Salish tribal member and activist Kate Norris who rallied for justice there. The list of atrocities in Canada alone are outrageous to say the very least fore these are contemporary times we are speaking about. The redistribution of Natives kids to foster homes was a crime unto itself.

Then there are the Me'tis of Black Tickle Labrador, they have no running water or sanitation. Their entire economy thrust into limbo and all they wanted was access to the Trans Labrador Highway so they could spur tourism. Their location would have made a perfect tourist and sports destination if they were provided a link to this highway. They wanted to have a piece of the budding tourism industry Labrador and New Foundland are currently promoting. I find this quite odd since it would appear the government are purposely trying to squeeze these people out because they live on prime land for development. To think Canada is catering to the big bucks tourist industry at the expense of this humble community is simply obscene. Why does progress have to be at the expense of Indigenous people world wide?

Take a long hard look at that diamond ring on your finger. Now take a long hard look at the workers in South Africa who've slaved in grueling inhuman conditions. The reward for their efforts may be a meal or two for their families. The real bounty is sold for nothing less than a king's ransom. The World Bank had gleaned a handsome profit as rain forests disappeared in South America destroying traditional tribal land for Natives in that region. When they protested, they simply were machine gunned down and buried in mass graves. Their struggle never made public or in the mainstream media. Dare I mention the struggle of the good people of Ireland?

So it is not so easy to be joyous let alone forgive and forget when we are still under assault. We are the Indigenous people of the world and we come in all races and nations. We are dying from the ill effects of greed, cultural and religious differences as an ambivalent world looks on. And I am the voice of the voiceless.

Fwd: This is what SHOULD be in the News.....?

John Gebhardt in Iraq

This needs to make headline news...not some of the other junk that makes the news these days!!!

It's a tough, but heart-warming story...with a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq

John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed.

The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head...but they failed to kill her.

She was cared for in John's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan.

The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair.

The girl is coming along with her healing.

You'll never see things like this in the news.

Even if it is just one little girl at a time.

We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust our sails..

Please always remember them in your prayers !!

STOP the fighting ~ For We Are ALL ONE FAMILY !!


Fwd: Finnegan The Squirrel's Story !!

Debby Cantlon, who plans to release Finnegan,

the young squirrel, back into the wild, bottle-fed

the infant squirrel after it was brought to her house.
Finny 1

When Cantlon took in the tiny creature and began

caring for him, she found herself with an unlikely

nurse's aide: her pregnant Papillion, Mademoiselle Giselle.

Finny 2

Finnegan was resting in a nest in a cage just days

before Giselle was due to deliver her puppies.

Finny 3

Cantlon and her husband watched as the dog

dragged the squirrel's cage twice to her own

bedside before she gave birth.

Finny 4

Cantlon was concerned, yet ultimately decided

to allow the squirrel out and the inter-species

bonding began.

Finny 5

Finnegan rides a puppy mosh pit of sorts, burrowing

in for warmth after feeding, and eventually working

his way beneath his new litter mates.

Finny 6

Two days after giving birth, mama dog Giselle

allowed Finnegan to nurse; family photos and a

videotape show her encouraging him to suckle

alongside her litter of five pups.

Finny 7

Now, Finnegan mostly uses a bottle, but still snuggles

with his "siblings" in a mosh pit of puppies, rolling

atop their bodies and sinking in deeply for a nap.

Finny 8

Finnegan and his new litter mates, five Papillion

puppies, get along to gether as if they were meant to.

Finny 9

Finnegan naps after feeding.

Finny 10

Finnegan makes himself at home with his new

litter mates, nuzzling nose-to-nose for a nap after feeding.

My son Dylan sent me this and I just had to share it with you.

Feel free to pass it round and brighten someone's day !

Love and Hugs.

Buffalohair NativeVue Selling Native American Scalps On ebay

Just so everyone knows. The auction house listed below was in the process of auctioning off Sioux Scalps on ebay today. Granted they are off the market now with this shameless attempt to sell human body parts. But the fact remains they may still be in possession of these items. And you have the right to know who these creatures are. Wonder if they have and human skin lamp shades from Hitler's era of madness?
Allard Auctions Inc.
1600 S. Country Club Dr.
Mesa AZ, 85201

At the very least we should let our opinion be known to these people. So the Feds are aware of this loathsome act we should remind them that we also know. Just in case they forgot to enforce the law.

Title 18, United States Code, Section 1170 - Illegal Trafficking in Native American Human Remains and Cultural Items: Prohibits the sale of the human remains or cultural artifacts of Native Americans without the right of possession of those items in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.

We have the power to make a difference.

Your Devil's Advocate


I thank my brother Si Thomas of the 
Shoshone/Paiute Nation for the heads up on this issue. 



As if Native people did not have more to worry about it would appear the Shoshone Nations has their hands full. The Cortez Mining Company is in the process of coercing the Feds into breaking another treaty and it's about gold. What is it about the name Cortez that seems to ring a bell eh? Oh, that's right since it was some dude named Cortez who murdered the Aztec's over the very same issue, GOLD. But I don't think they will kill the tribal chief and toss him to the ground, hope not anyway. But the blatant disregard for treaties and been pandemic for centuries as gold hungry people lied and murdered their way into the hearts of Native people though out the America's.

 Mount Tenabo is a very sacred site filled with artifacts of the Shoshone Nation. There is no price tag that can be placed on this significant sacred place fore money is not of importance. This site is a part of their culture and a part of them as a people and they are asking for your help in signing a petition to try and influence the government into honoring their treaty. It does not matter where you live on this planet since public opinion seems to be a great motivator in influencing the political powers that be. I would also suggest that you spread the world and let the world know what is happening to these honorable people.


If only we had the internet back in the days of the Conquistadors. Maybe then the European community would have put a stop to the death and destruction of Native People's through out the America's. I have provided their humble request as well as a link to sign the petition provided.

Dear Friend,
The US Bureau of Land Management is currently reviewing a
proposal to expand the Cortez Hills Project. If approved, it
would be one of the country's largest gold mines. The project
would disturb over 6,500 acres of public land-all of which are considered
 traditional lands by the Western Shoshone. 
We urgently need your help to convince the US government to deny
this proposal.
The entire area lies within Western Shoshone boundaries of the
1863 Treaty of Ruby Valley, which recognized Shoshone rights to
this land. The area includes Mount Tenabo, an extremely
significant spiritual and cultural area to the Western Shoshone.
Many Shoshone have long expressed deep concerns and outright
opposition to any further exploration on their lands, without
their free, prior, and informed consent. The on"US Bureau of Land
Management is currently taking comments on this proposal until
Dec. 4. We are calling on our supporters to join with us in
signing the petition urging the bureau to reject this proposal.
Please sign the petition today!
Thank you for standing with Oxfam and the Western Shoshone.
We can make a difference is we all join in. And time is 
running out since December 4th is just around the 
corner. I thank my brother Si Thomas of the 
Shoshone/Paiute Nation for the heads up on this issue. 
You remember Si from the Duck Valley Indian Rez eh. 
Thanks Bro.

What the hay is wrong with the public’s memory these days? The latest round of nonsense to be circulating around is Billy Boy Clinton’s statement that he opposed the war in Iraq. Granted the media picked up on this folly but they forgot one thing. And of course I am here to remind everyone what happened after 9-11.

After 9-11 everyone and his brother was hot to trot over the war. Ole Billy Boy was not only for the war but he was miffed that King George was going to add this historic and now catastrophic event to his legacy. Billy “I like dipped cigars” Clinton was almost livid that he did not have a 9-11 event in his presidency to add to his legacy.

Further, he was the one who ordered the bombing of an aspirin factory in the Sudan killing innocent people in a thinly veiled attempt to mask his sexual improprieties. We can’t forget all the coincidental deaths of his and Hillary’s business partners back in the day as well. If memory serves me right there were 41 or so questionable deaths directly associated with Bill and Hillary. It was called the Clinton’s Body Count. Surely you remember the “suicide” of White House Counsel Vincent Foster. So what if there was evidence of secondary wounds that would have proved he was murdered in any courtroom.

Hey Hillary Rottingham Clinton, do you remember Whitewater, Travelgate and Filegate and the thinly veiled attempt to cover these controversies up? And why was Vince Foster’s draft of a resignation letter called a suicide note? Oh my, I remember clearly all the Ka Ka that happened during Billy Boys presidency and it is astounding to me that everyone else has amnesia these days. And she wants to bring all her experience to the Whitehouse as president of the United States of America, Oy Vey!!!

Well, after all she is related to Dick Cheney and Obama. And as far as I’m concerned there is no difference in political parties anymore since they all point towards war, war and more war when they reach office. So what if the nation needs repair. Is it not time to fix life on the home front for a change rather than push our ideals down the throats of others? Yup you guessed it again boys and girls because, “It’s all about the money”, Capice?

“The ruthless economic exploitation and political oppression of the peasants by the landlord class forced them into numerous uprisings against its rule.... It was the class struggles of the peasants, the peasant uprisings and peasant wars that constituted the real motive force of historical development in Chinese feudal society.”
Mao Tse-Tung

Mao Tse-Tung would be rolling over in his grave if he knew what is happening to the party he established back in the day. Wracked with corruption this nation has not seen since before the revolution the Chinese Communist Party has become the pariah the People’s Party once destroyed. According to Mr. Minxin Pei PhD, political scientist and Harvard grad who directs the China Project in Washington DC at the Carnegie Endowment think Tank; Chinese Communist Party Official have become corrupt beyond repair.

The very essence of the Communist Party is destine to collapse do to Corporate Cronyism as political officials glean money from the coffers of this nation. The public at large has rioted many thousands of times though not reported to the western press. Opposition leaders have been executed and imprisoned. Land has been illegally taken from the citizens of this nation. And the needs of the people such as health care have taken a back burner to the needs of industry and the state. Hmm, sounds familiar huh.

Over 190,000 Communist Party Officials have been cited for corruption with nothing more than a warning. 20 % where ousted from the party with only 3% ending up in the slammer.

"The odds that a corrupt official will go to jail are, at most, three out of 100," Mr. Pei says, "making corruption a high-return, low-risk activity."

The worst crimes against their own citizenry are perpetrated by the state owned businesses like their health care and land management for instance. Healthcare, a primary concern of any nation, oops except the US of course, has taken an ambivalent turn for the worse will millions of illegal property transactions have taken place to the chagrin of the people of China. The end result being millions of mass demonstrations followed by the government response of false imprisonment and death to it’s citizenry who dare to speak out. Human rights are nothing more than words since there is none.

Their support of the totalitarian iron fisted Burmese Junta who has followed China’s lead with wholesale murder and enslavement of it’s population is very clear. One atrocity not mentioned was the distributing of heroin laced candy that was distributed to the children of Burma back in the 70’s causing mass deaths of these innocent souls. So it is no surprise the Burmese government has taken to enlisting children into their military ranks recently according to Human Rights Watchdog and child rights advocate Jo Becker. Incidentally, this practice was common in South America by US backed nations in this region as well.

The Burmese people have become enslaved in their once proud nation as the corrupt Chinese government spread it’s new form of Corporate Communism. They set the pace for others to follow as their example of totalitarian rule has become a cancer even within their own population. Seems Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book has taken a back seat as the tenets of true communism has been disregarded to say the very least. This is not communism by any stretch of the word. The United Nations has turned a deaf ear to the people of China as well as the cries from Burma. Arm chair political observers of the world, with their “everything is spiffy” heads in the sand choose to ignore the catastrophic turn of events as human beings suffer and die. There should be a sign on the Great Wall of China that reads, “Over a Billon Not Server”. And here sits Corporate America lusting to gain access to this enslaved Asian market for fun and profit. It’s all about the money Paisan.

China’s total disregard for the Kyoto Accord is obvious while their industries puke out green house gasses plunging the Earth into further environment chaos. They lead the way in total disregard for life world wide. But US industries gleefully keep doing business with China since China has cheap manpower at their disposal. How many recalls of toys do to lead based paint do we have to endure before we realize we are dealing with a morally corrupt nation? The latest antics from China was the distributing of toys laced with a chemical similar to the date rape drug to the American market place. Or is anyone connecting the dots? Gads, the news is as plain as the nose on ones face.

Then we come to the Thanksgiving Holiday and the US Fleet including the USS Kitty Hawk totalling 8,000 sailors. Their destination was Hong Kong. US citizens flew to Hong Kong to join their sailors for and planned holiday leave. Eager to see their loved ones, sailors of our proud fleet eagerly anticipated the holidays with loved ones after a tour at sea. This planned event was filled with joy and excitement. Then when the ships made port the Chinese government simply turned our sailors back out to an angry sea with a tropical storm brewing. Imagine the grief and sorrow our sailors must have felt as well as all the family members who spent days preparing for the holiday season. People flew in from all points of the globe to visit their loved ones. But alas, our ships were turned away.

I may not like the politics our government is balled up in but I have nothing but respect for our sailors and soldiers who do the bidding for this nation. Oddly enough I find myself standing by George W. Bush on this issue since he was totally dismayed over this turn of events as well. Gads, did I say that? He blasted the Chinese Foreign Minister over this incident.

It is inevitable that China will soon be thrust into total pandemonium as a new revolution takes hold. But in the meantime their people will continue to suffer this new totalitarian rule as Corporate Communism puts a strangle hold on their own people. The collateral damage is the good people of Burma who have become enslaved as their rulers follow the example of the corrupt Chinese Government.

So keep your head in the sand and pretend everything is spiffy. Pretend all is well as the Dynasty of Hatred becomes the champion of Human Rights violations. And as you watch your investments grow in Chinese stock futures, remember it is all blood money.

What would a boycott bring? Well maybe US Industrialists would have to bring jobs back to the United States. That would be an interesting concept. Course that would mean a smaller bottom line since the labour force would not be forced labour. And as well all know, “It’s all about the money Paisan”, Capice?

In a way we are since corporations as well as our government does not seem to care about yet another group of indigenous people, go figure eh. Every once in a while we hear news about the drama that is unfolding in Burma. The wholesale murder of Buddhist Monks and the civilian population at large does not phase the world it seems. Corporate America has embraced China since they see dollar signs with this growing nation. A growing nation burns oil and gas to the joy of stock holders. They also need our technology as well. Even internet providers are chomping at the bit to glean a handsome profit in China. Like I always say, "it's all about the money"


I have a friend from Burma and by no means has the media at large even got close to the realities of the holocaust that is going on there. We sit by and inadvertently support the death and destruction that is happening to these people. China has taken a very negative position in the Burmese people's plight indeed since they are supplying weapons  to feed the war of ideologies there. Innocent men women and children are being murdered by the droves while the world sits by and counts their chips. The stock market and investors in China's economy do not want to upset the ole ox cart and piss of the Chinese Government by suggesting they influence the Burmese government into stopping the "Killing Fields" mentality.


Our Corporate Fascist Industrialists are lining their pockets with blood money as well as investors while people are being butchered. Course the plight of Africans has been a non issue as well. South America has been under siege forever it seems and well, we need not forget the Iraq debacle. When will the citizens of the world stand up and say a frigging thing? Guess that is why we are poised to feel the wrath of a more dynamic nature when Ma Earth kicks some bootie and sends us back to the stone age. And personally, I can't wait. This New World Odor thing really smells big time.


After listening to my friend talk of all the horrors she endured before she made tracks to New Zealand the on to the US, I was without words. Tears filled my eyes as she described of first hand accountings that mirrored the stories from my people as we faced Chivington and Custer. It was a flashback of sorts since my people still feel the horror of our history. Imagine walking to school and having to step over dismembered bodies of men, women and children every day. Then hoping these butchers do not come into your village to do the same. Out of absolute fear she did not want me to mention her village or her tribe since the government monitors the internet as well. And they would wreak death and torture if they knew who to make an example of.


As we spoke I could see the terror in her eyes as she told me volumes of the carnage she personally witnessed while in her homeland. She told me of children marching in their school uniforms in protest only to be machine gunned down in cold blood. If you follow the money you would find that eventually it ends up coming out of our pockets as we finance China through industry and America's policy of buying friend's world wide. I believe we as a people should hold accountable these corporations that are swapping spit with China.


They could do more than just turn a deaf ear on the hopeless cries from innocent Burmese people. Oh boy that will be the day eh. If it's all about the money, then we should follow the money and make a statement that seems to be the only way we can be heard anyway. Hit these industrialists in their pocket book and boycott every industry who does business in China until they stand up and use their big bucks to influence China into stopping the killing.


Yea sure, like that is going to happen. Sadly humanity is destine to go into the sewer as material lusting takes the helm of this and other nations all for the bottom line. Indigenous people are under siege world wide as Corporate America sits by and counts their chips and gleefully waits till the smoke clears so they can set up shop. It's all about the money Paisan, simple as that. Who cares about Burma anyway? It's just some puny country with a few plantations that England once dominated. They were our allies during WWII who fought and died alone side American troops. Just a courageous people who looked to the US for help is all. But like other people who helped the US out in our time of need. We turn a deaf ear and worse we go a finish them off. It is shameful that these greasy corporations do nothing but line their pockets while innocent people die.


Ah, just another PTSD moment I guess, like spitting in the wind since nothing will happen anyway. Come on Earth Changes; please clean this filthy slate of this so called civilization. This has become a fetid existence where the bottom line overshadows human life. So I sit and burn my cedar and make prayers for all the indigenous people of the world. Maybe I'll be able to hold back the tears when my Burmese friend vents her sorrow as she struggles with PTSD's like the rest of the Indigenous population of the world.


It's all about the money Paisan.

Earth Changes Ice Age

Back to our History Lessons; Cycle of Ice

When have Ice Ages occurred?

Many glacial advances and retreats have occurred during the last billion years of Earth history. These glaciations are not randomly distributed in time.Instead, they are concentrated into four time intervals. Large, important glaciations occurred during the late Proterozoic (between about800 and 600 million years ago), during the Pennsylvanian and Permian (between about 350 and 250 million years ago), and the late Neogene toQuaternary (the last 4 million years). Somewhat less extensive glaciations occurred during portions of the Ordovician and Silurian (between about 460 and 430 million years ago).

During each of these intervals, many glacial advances and retreatsoccurred. For example, over 60 glacial advances and retreats have occurred during the last 2 million years.

If "ice age" is used to refer to long, generally cool, intervals during which glaciers advance and retreat, we are still in one today. Our modern climate represents a very short, warm period between glacial advances.

Mars is being hit by rapid climate change and it is happening so fast that the red planet could lose its southern ice cap, writes Jonathan Leake.

Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period.

Since there is no known life on Mars it suggests rapid changes in planetary climates could be natural phenomena................

Living Green

10 Simple (and Cheap) Green Ideas
By Annie B. Bond, executive producer of Care2’s Green Living content.
Browse through this list of simple solutions designed to save energy and reduce carbon emissions for the planet, and at the same time save you money.

SIMPLE SOLUTION:  10 Tips to Save Energy (and Money) in Your Home
A whopping 46 percent of home energy use is, umm, energy loss! In other words, no productive energy use at all! Here are simple ways of reversing this, mostly by changes of habit. Thanks to and The Home Energy Diet (New Society Publishers, 2005), for many of the carbon savings figures.

1. Each degree you turn down the heat saves 3 percent of heating costs, while each degree you raise the temperature of your air conditioner saves 3-4 percent of cooling costs. By changing the temperature by two degrees all year you can save about 2,000 pounds of C02 a year.

2. Cook with a slow cooker or a toaster oven (or even a solar oven!) to reduce electrical use from kitchen appliances. For a meal that requires 1 hour to cook in an electric oven, and which uses 2.7 pounds of C02, a crockpot uses 0.9 pounds of C02 for seven hours, a toaster oven takes 1.3 pounds of C02 for 50 minutes, and a microwave only 0.5 pounds of C02 for 15 minutes of cooking. A solar cooker requires NO C02!

3. Switch to a laptop instead of using a desktop computer and cut three-quarters off your electrical use. Turn off the laptop at the end of the day.

4. Switch to cold water washing and save 80 percent on energy used for laundry and save an estimated $60 a year. Hang dry your clothes instead of using the dryer and save 700 pounds of C02 a year.

5. Plug anything that can be powered by a remote control or that has a power cube transformer (little black box) into a power strip, and turn it off, and/or unplug, when not in use.(Power cubes are 60-80 percent inefficient.)

6. Turn off the lights when you aren’t using them and reduce your direct lighting energy use by 45 percent. Stop using heat-producing halogen lamps (they can also be fire hazards). Install occupancy or motion sensors on outdoor lights.

7. Switch to compact fluorescent from regular incandescent bulbs and use 60 percent less energy per bulb and save 300 pounds of C02 a year.

8. Wrap your water heater in an insulation blanket and save 1,000 pounds of C02 a year. Insulate your hot water pipes.

9. Use public transportation whenever possible, carpool, shop locally, and ideally switch to a hybrid or energy-efficient car (if you haven’t already).

10. Keep your tires inflated to improve gas mileage by three percent. Every gallon you save also saves 20 pounds of C02 emissions.


Since the devastating jelly fish debacle that destroyed Ireland’s salmon farming industry last week another herd of jelly fish has been spotted of the coast of Scotland. Sure enough this will wreak havoc on their fish farming industry as well as fishing in general. There is no question that global warming is entering a much more virulent stage sooner then the scientific community expected. Fact is we don’t have to worry about future generations and their survival; we have to face the effects now.

Though the world chose to ignore the Alaskan Eskimos as they loose their tribal land and culture as well as the erosion of the Florida coast line, nature has another plan. Our food chain is under assault and we are feeling the effects now. The scientific community already is concerned about absolutely everything that grows and lives these days as climate change has taken an abrupt tune for the worse. Nature is already adapting to this as jelly fish begin to invade the seas for more food. It will not be long before absolutely every aspect of nature shows these signs of change. And it will be to the chagrin of mankind.

The Andes glaciers are disappearing at such a fast rate that scientists believe they will gone by mid century. I beg to differ since I truly think they will be gone much sooner. From what I’ve witnessed in Alaska where the climate is much cooler the Andes glaciers will be gone in a fraction of the time science is predicting. Of course the first to be effected are the Indigenous people like the Aymara Indians and the world will turn a deaf ear until the totality of this reality strikes home since 11,000,000 people in the cities below will also suffer this dynamic change. No water, no crops, no cattle and no hydro-electric power. That’s just in one region of South America alone.

Hello Mac Fly, when will the world leaders address this disaster in the making? They will most likely follow the US lead in ambivalence and wait till bodies are bloated and drying in the desert sun before they lift a finger. There is no turning backthe clock since even scientific community’s world wide agree that we have gone well beyond the point of no return. Fact is the Hopi and other Indigenous people of the world have been giving warnings long before we reached a crisis. Industries response to this cataclysmic event was to introduce Green products and market Earth Friendly products, at a very handsome profit I might add. At some point money will not be the issue and survival will. Frankly folks, we are at that juncture now but Corporate Fascism has turned a deaf ear on these pleas and warnings.

Don’t get me wrong, green is good but it is too late, way too late to save us from the disaster that is upon us already. I read of many “tiny” incidents world wide and when I connect the dots it paints a picture of pending total economic and societal disaster. Mother Earth has already begun the much more virulent changes that were once thought to be something for our grand children to contend with. And I bet Industrialists thought the same thing. I used to read of these events on a yearly basis, then on a monthly basis. Now it’s more like a daily basis and with multiple events world wide. I know I’m not the only one who observes this.

Though it is not mentioned much except for a few blurbs as a side bar in the news, the Indonesian region is about to pop its cork as volcanoes are being born. The remnants of Krakatoa is coming back to life. Earthquakes have become common place in that region yet no one seems to be concerned at the magnitude of this sign. There are other regions on Earth that are getting ready to pop as well and what a show it will be eh. Diseases of an incurable nature are spreading across the United States at an alarming rate yet the CDC and other agencies do not with to cause a panic. Well, when do we start worrying, when we go to the hospital for an exam and come home with flesh eating strep or a flu that kills? By then it will be to late. We are becoming a plague ridden planet.

We are under assault from all levels of existence as I speak. And this is only the stuff that I am aware of. I’ll wager there are 100 fold more events that science and the world are not aware of or not mentioning. But mark my words, we will soon see for ourselves. I know the citizens of the state of Georgia know what I am talking about since they are almost out of water now. And what was the response? Let’s buy stocks in water the next market boom investment companies say. Of course it will be at the expense of human suffering just like everything else that is problematic in this nation, Health Care, Oil, the Insurance Scam and the list goes on. And it’s all about the money, that worthless piece of paper and the lusting therein.

They better invest in food as well since we are about to enter a phase of world wide food shortages. It will be a shortage mankind has not seen since the advent of the last Ice Age. Yup, investors who are making a fortune in oil will soon make a fortune in water and eventually on the food crisis that is just around the corner. And who could give a flying crappola anyway since by then money will become worthless. Like the old visions says, “A rich man will die of starvation in his sleep while using a sack of pinto beans as a pillow” One day your neighbors Targa parked in the driveway will be nothing more than an uncomfortable place to sit. The wealth of today will be nothing more than paper weights of tomorrow. Money will be nothing more than a funny paper that does not burn well. Sadly people will wonder why people killed for it in the first place.

Mankind will soon know what the survivors of the Donner Party went through during their stay in the Sierra Nevada Mountains during a hard winter about 150 years ago. Alfred Packer dined on his friends back in the day in Colorado when they were without food. Ah yes, I can see a few years from now at a quaint little restaurant off Melrose Blvd, The Chez Sapien. The waiter will say, “Donner, party of 33” Bon Appetite’
Yup, “Long Pork” will be on the menu as markets sell pork chops with one bone in the center. Gads, it would put a reality spin to movies like “Soylent Green” where they euthanized the elderly and made them into bit sized nutritional treats called Soylent Green. Yum.

Even if we only had a mini Ice Age like in the Middle Ages the world would collapse and kingdoms would perish at the shear magnitude of death and disease that will encompass the Earth. These “Elite Shelters” that are scattered around the globe better have plenty of food to weather the era of pandemonium that will reign. Like they say, you can run but you can’t hide. It is my hunch people who hide in these cavernous shelters will discover they are trapped in a mass grave as Ma Earth closes their escape routes. Aw, to bad so sad.

So I have fitful dreams. The people who know me also know of my visions and I’ll share this with you, take it or leave it. It was said that mankind would be on the brink of totalitarian rule just before Ma Earth blew her cork. And well, check out this bill our politicians are trying to pass as of this writing. This is the title and a site you can read for yourself, through the legalese.

S 1959 "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007"

I read it and basically it gives the government total unabridged rule over the population of the United States of America with no regard to civil liberties, the Constitution, Habeus Corpus and the Bill of Rights. Don’t mean much to us Natives here in America since we lost our rights hundreds of years ago anyway. Both the Dems and the Reps at the top of the pile are going for it, it would appear since they allowed George Bush to pass an executive order giving him permission to go anywhere in the world without regard to sovereignty of any nation to pursue anyone he felt was a terrorist, even if he was wrong. Now this Act will close the gap in rights and civil liberties since there will be no need to have a trial. What ever eh, read it and weep boys and girls.

Point being, it was after this time that totalitarian rule became the law of the land Ma Earth was going to kick it in high gear. I venture to state the Internet is on the agenda and sever restrictions are just around the corner. It will be a thinly veiled bill to save our kids or stop Al Queada but the reality will be to stop the free flow of information world wide to keep people from knowing the truth. Maybe I put to much pineapple on my pizza and it’s all a bunch of fit full dreams after all I do suffer PTSD’s.

Ah, but there is a silver lining. In one of my fit full dreams I also saw the world after the Elements of the Four Directions finished cleansing Ma Earth though. Out of the cess and rubble of this once so called civilized society will emerge survivors. From all corners of the globe people of all colors and nations would come together. They will come together for survival and they will call themselves “The Human Race” They will go forward as a new people.

Whether I lived or died is of no consequence to me fore I know what is on the other side. It is the spirit world; the place from which I came from and the place I will return to. But if I have to survive, you’ll find me digging holes for outhouses, showing people how to make fire, hunt, smoke their meat and find water. Possibly I’ll be sitting under a tree telling stories about how life was before Ma Earth cleansed herself of all that caused her discomfort. Maybe I’ll live long enough to see the return of the buffalo to the barren plains. Then I would take my journey in a good way knowing my people are finally free.

PS it's also embedded on our myspace. if you hadn't noticed



As toys from China are recalled for potential health hazards to children, the FDA has decided to add a side effects warning on the flu shots that have caused children to die and suffer neurological problems. You would think they would have done extensive studies on the effects on people like they claim to do.

Course you must remember they are only just now reviewing the people who does the testing. Why? There may be a possibility these people are industry connected. By their own admission they are tracing the financial statements of their testers to see who is actually lining the pockets. These are the people who are testing our food and drugs. In other words, we have been taken for a long hard ride. And it stands to reason since we are being fed poison as it is. The fox guarding the hen house. Just remember, the Feds allowed cocaine and opium to be sold to the general public at one time. Remember Thalidomide and a generation of deformed children it produced?

Imagine, all these years we have been given a bag of goods. Small wonder there is so much excepted garbage being sold these days. The toxic stew that is allowed to be sold is criminal as it is. Drugs with side effect like sudden death and heart disease are not cures they are poison. Vioxx was another classic example of deadly drugs our Federal Government has allowed on the market. What are they thinking anyway? Just follow the money Paisan, just follow the money.

It’s all about the money and the lobbying army of Corporate America has paved the way to clear many potentially deadly drugs to the American public for many years now. When you read 100 % Beef you must realize that bovines have many parts other than sirloin and tri tips. They have other squiggly parts that are ground up and formed into patties and other sundry delights sure to make you barf. The fast food industry is totally out of control with the garbage they sell our nation. Diabetes and other food related maladies like heart disease are excepted side effects of these poisons.

Corporate America has taken over and we are at the whim of those who are concerned about the bottom line and not the welfare of the people. It simply blows me away the FDA was aware of this deadly flu shot since 2005 and was simply reviewing this situation. Two years of reviewing, two years of deadly side effects and two years of profits for Corporations. That is only one situation we are aware of. I will wager there are other drugs that are killing people but from an industry stand point, this is acceptable collateral damage for the greater good.

Makes you wonder what is actually safe to eat and drink since we are basically alone with no protections from corrupt money mongering industrialist’s hell bent on profiteering on a trusting public. I am telling you lobbying should never have been accepted. It is flat wrong that someone can spend loads of money to wine and dine politicians for the sole purpose of influencing them towards the industry who is footing the bill. It is nothing more than stacking the deck against the public in this seedy form of corruption.

It should piss people off the Federal Government spends billions of tax payer dollars on research and development of drugs and the like. Then when they are developed industry charges the very tax payer for a drug they paid dearly for in the first place. The public gets hit twice for the cost of these chemicals then they pay with their lives when they ingest them.

So the next time you board a jet liner such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner that is made of plastic which was tested in house by Boeing. Grab a Micky Dee’s animal remnants burger and enjoy the ride since one or the other will most likely kill you. The FDA and the FAA are playing Russian Roulette with our lives. Sadly the gun is pointed at us. Corporate Fascism is alive and well. Seig Heil !!

Buffalohair: BOMB IRAN FOR FUN AND PROFIT and keep that Magellan Fund alive.

Both Democratic and Republican hopefuls Hillary and Rudy are in favor of escalating the Mid East tensions by bombing Iran in a show of military strength. This is sure to cost the US tax payers trillions and fatten the bank accounts of party official who are heavily invested in the War Based economy George W. Bush built. The excuse this time, weapons of mass destruction. As we all know, Iraq was billed with this same excuse and Sadam Hussein was murdered in the process. It is funny how former allies during the Cold War became our enemies whence the Berlin Wall was torn down. Thanks Ron.

Good ole Ronnie Reagan is touted as some hero for balancing the budget when all he really did was to include the Social Security Funds into the general fund. Now it’s all but bankrupt since the money was spent for war and lining the pockets of our so called leaders. Now King George W. wants to secure his name in history as the man who single handedly started WW III since we have been warned by fellow nuclear power Russia that we would be making a grave mistake is we bombed Iran. Remember President Putin’s warning to the US if we made war in Iran a few short months ago?

Now George W and Dickie Boy are playing Russian Roulette with our lives since they already have shelters to jump into when the missiles fly. The world should know “We the People” of the United States are not buying into this mad man’s plan for world domination and this new Corporate Fascism that is spreading like a cancer. Fact is, the vast majority of the people I’ve interviewed around the country are totally against George W’s plans. He is a lame duck president who is hell bent on making money for his cronies and a select few. His interests are not that of the people. Fact is, he is a traitor to this nation and the core tenets this nation was founded on.

And now, all our presidential candidates are equally as corrupt since they are poisoned by the greed disease since they are heavily invested in everything we the people are suffering with. Health Care, The Insurance Scam, The War Industry, Oil and much more are issues that have turned into profit making ventures as these political criminals rape this nation. The media at large is owned by conglomerates that are a part of the problem and not a part of the cure. It’s all about the money Paisan.

There is no real news other than Paris Hilton garbage since all the talking heads are the same. The only real contest is to see who will be boss of this now corrupt political system. Gads, Dick Cheney, Osama and Hillary are related anyway. Does that not register a Red Flag of some kind? And I’ll bet the rest of them boneheads are related somehow as well. Maybe they were all conjoined at birth by strings from the lobbyists of the insurance industry or was it oil? Maybe it was the war toy manufacturing industry. It is hard to tell these days since this nation is run by corporations and not the people anymore. We the people are simply the working class, expendable and of no real significant in the grand scheme of things. Our kids are the pawns in this war mongering industrial Fascist Regime. Corporate Fascism is the new face of America these days and it’s a small wonder this nation is hated even by members of the free world.

I should make a sign that all nations of the world can post when they see George W Bush walking their way, “If you’d take more time for your own business, you would not have enough time for mine” and boy do we have some unattended business. The totality of our infrastructure is disappearing while the bottom is falling out of our economy. NAFTA is crippling our home based industries as industry simply moves to other nations with no environmental laws or minimum wage.

Maybe I should broadcast “Gary Owen” world wide so everyone can be forewarned that a New Custer is on his way. And he is hell bent on reeking havoc in their nations with this new form of Manifest Destiny. George “Armstrong” Bush and Dick “Chivington” Cheney, that sounds about right though fore there is no difference in what Custer and Chivington did to us Natives. The early dynamic duo murdered their way into the hearts of millions. And the two goons we have at the helm of this nation are doing the same thing but in a grander scale.

It would be kewl if world leaders actually had to fight each other rather than the people of the respective nations. This would save many lives as well as money. Then maybe these boneheads who call themselves leaders and presidents would think twice before shooting off their mouths and starting wars. Bet George W would have thought twice before mixing it up with Sadam. That would have been a kewl grudge match eh. Putin looks like a scrapper though. And there is George, alcoholic turned prez.

Buffalohair NativeVue Killer Jelly Fish on the Attack


As Industry boasts of a newly opened trade route through the Northwest Passage, the ocean claims villages from Alaskan Natives and Florida slowly begins to disappear, it’s only obvious the negative effects of Global Warming are already upon us. In many scientific circles the effects of this event are coming much sooner than expected. One effect previously uncalculated was the migratory routes of jelly fish, Pelagia nocticula (mauve stinger) in particular.

Yea well so what? Who could give a flying Frisbee about a jelly fish anyway? OK, let’s say you decide to take a dip in the ocean and discover you are totally engulfed in a sea filled with these neuro toxin filled buggers eh. Surely it would spell death since you would be stung to the point of paralysis. Just imagine a herd of jelly fish about 10 miles square and about 35 feet deep. Well that is just what happened to The Northern Salmon Company if Glenarm Ireland.

Like cattle ranchers they raise salmon in netted corrals in the ocean. Their fish are raised in a totally organic environment since they are raised in the sea with no artificial chemicals or foods. Their product is sold all over the world or should I say was sold all over the world fore they lost their entire crop of fish off the coast of Belfast to this unprecedented showing of jelly fish. In some circles this would be considered the risk of doing business in this environment. But in all actuality this is yet another sign of global warming since these jelly fish are used to be found in the warms waters of the Mediterranean and in no way were they ever found in such a massive gathering such as this.

While the corralled fish were being moved to the safety of pens, they were engulfed with this dense pack of deadly jelly fish. Futilely three boats tried in vane to save the defenceless fish as they were being moved to safety. Eventually more then 100,000 salmon valued at $2,000,000 dollars were killed or left dying from the toxic stew of jelly fish. In effect, the Northern Salmon Company was put out of business.

As the Earth gets warmer andthe polar caps melt the coastlines will simply disappear like in the case of Florida as erosion eats away at its shores. Or did you hear about this one yet? Like the villages in Alaska the ocean is slowly claiming the shores of some coastal communities in Florida already. Yup boys and girls, the disastrous effects of global warming are already here. To the chagrin of industrialists and corporations who thought they would already be dead by the time these effects took place. Sorry Charlie, you get to suffer along with the rest of us eh.

There are some key factors that do not seem to make the press. Sure man has played a role in this global disaster and man has been foolish about the uses of natural resources. We can point to this as one of the factors since it is totally true but man is only part of the scenario fore the Sun has been getting warmer. Polar caps on Mercury, Venus and Mars have begun to melt as well as the warming of the solar system as a whole. There is no turning back this cycle kids. The effects of this major climatic change are going to be felt in our lifetime. And radical Earth Chances have already begun.

Even if man was the only culprit in this disaster, the cycle has already begun and there is no turning back. Rather than pretend this is not happening our so called leaders of the world should be spending OUR money in building aqueducts, alternative energy resources, relocation of major populations in the KNOWN areas where the sea will soon reclaim and prepare for the next Ice Age for it is just around the corner. After the warming period the climate will change and you better believe it will happen before we know it. Just ask the Woolly Mammoth or other animals who’ve been frozen in state and preserved fore eternity.

Scientists or Alchemists of this era do not know as much as they think they do as nature begins this cycle of change. From what I’ve researched over the years science has only verified the words of oral histories and accountings of the coming change on Earth. At one time the scientists and leadership of the day KNEW the Earth was flat and had all the calculations, scientific jargon and facts on their side. They knew these figures to be fact and there was no disputing it. Scientist is only now beginning to understand what the Maya and other advanced civilizations once knew. The Dogon people of Africa new where Cirrus was before so called civilization invented the telescope. If only the libraries of the Aztecs were not burned to the ground and all their “Intellectuals” were not murdered in cold blood and their children kept for slaves. Maybe we would have a better handle on the coming events. The mysteries of Europe will never be told since all history was obliterated since the time of Charlemagne and before. And truly, we now live in the Dark Ages and are ill prepared for the coming Earth Changes.

There was one news item about the rumblings on a volcano in Indonesia this week. In all actuality there have been many as the Ring of Fire prepares for a light show that will soon usher a new tide of Earth Changing events. Solar flares will soon incapacitate the world of electronics as these flares filled with Electro Magnetic Pulses reek havoc on everything electrical. On a side bar, I’ve noticed a change in humans as well during these EMP events. After all, the brain is operated by electricity. So if a grid can be shut down causing a black out in a third of the nation and little Joey Zimmermann’s transistor radio can be effected by these solar events. They why not the human brain? People are wigging out as it is and coincidentally there are more solar flares then ever before these days, go figure.

We are at the beginning of the end but not the end of Earth but the end of a way. The way of greed will soon be thrust into chaos as what was once thought to be important becomes nothing more than a memory of foolishness and material lusting. It does not matter which continent you reside on fore there are people who still adhere to the ancient teachings and oral histories. This is the key to survival, the ancient observations and recorded histories of how others survived the changes in the past. Fore if they did not survive, we would not be here today. We all have access to the true key to survival and it is there for you to understand.

The core of all religions are the same and the tenets are quite basic or at least they were before scribes altered all these wonderful works. The secret to surviving the coming changes were in black and white before man decided that using religion was the key to controlling the masses. The notion there could be anything called a “Holy War” is a contradiction of terms at best fore there is no such thing.

One day there will be a New World Order and it will not be the one King George W. Bush is building with his brand of Corporate Fascism. Fact is, he will be luck to survive regardless of how many secret shelters there are in America for the elite class. To think man can build shelters or develop a kingdom underground is ridiculous indeed. Cheyenne Mountain and all the underground facilities therein will be nothing more than prisons for those who seek this man made sanctuary. Call it a fitful dream but I saw this as well as a network of underground sanctuaries in Europe, Asia and the US.

Man and his arrogant ways actually think they can control the Earth. Whether it be by secret connections with Aliens or some secret Sanskrit works, it all means nothing. They are just as much a lie as this contemporary society we call Civilization fore it truly is not. As far as space dudes are concerned, so what. I could give a flying crappola since it was always said that there is both good in bad throughout the universe eh. This axiom has been understood since the beginning of man. There was a passage I remember, “The Creator sent messengers throughout the universe to teach of good and bad, right and wrong” so it is a no brainer we are not alone in this vast universe. So get over it. There is more going on within the confines of the spirit world than man can ever imagine and nothing is impossible, that is a given.

Kingdoms made by Green Paper will soon be worthless as the totality of the Earth Changes comes to light. Mankind will be humbled beyond words as Ma Earth enters a much more virulent phase in her cycle. World Domination will be replaced with World Survival as mankind scrambles to find sustenance and shelter when the Great Freeze comes a knocking boys and girls. It’s as simple as that eh. The meek shall inherit the Earth and a rich man will die of starvation in his sleep while using a sack of pinto beans as a pillow it is said.

Personally, I have no fear of death since there is no such thing. Call it a hunch or call it having absolute faith within the confines of my Native traditions and religion. By no means will it be the end of Earth but it surely will be the end of the way of greed and material lusting. And that would be something to behold indeed.

Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to make myself a peanut butter and jelly fish sandwich. Bon Appetite’
