Today’s reservation agents-those liberators, facilitators, and walkers and talkers-who like those of yesteryear skim the best off the top for themselves and then distribute the tainted beef that is left.
One could reasonably ask if they are government appointed, and in such an appointment granted a level of immunity?
Such agents historically wrote glowing reports of their good deeds, their dedication to advancing the welfare of those who they ministered to.
Sound familiar? If not take a look at the books and the videos that are so prevalent today-much the same isn’t it?
In the past it was a boot on the neck of the people that held them down-but oppression and abuse are the same whether it is a boot or a moccasin, and both are to be resisted.
The murder of Wesley Bad Heart Bull and the subsequent beating of his mother Sarah Bad Heart Bull led to the confrontation at the Custer court house-these modern day Indian agents were in the forefront of that demanding justice for a murdered son and a beaten mother.
I view their participation now as little more than resume building, this due to their complete lack of participation and willingness to secure the same justice for Annie Mae they were so vocal about at Custer. Their complete unwillingness to address the issues of gangs and the epidemic rape and abuse of women and children.
There is a reason for this lack of effort, one that should be obvious to all, and as rumors begin to circulate anew about pending indictments those reasons should become all too apparent.
An AIM hater? Not at all-just an individual who has no use for Indian agents be they past or present-no use for liars, murderers, rapists, or thieves. No use for Peltier, Graham, Means, Banks, Camp, Crow Dog, Bellecourt, Lorelie, Madonna, or any like them. No use for bloated defense committees or would be pundits and authors with their breathless conspiracy theories and fairy tales.
A line is being drawn in the sand-a battle cry sounded? Good, now honor both, the line and the call-ask for no quarter and give none. You have a voice-use it.
