In a Navajo Times article from January, 2022, Kenneth G. White Jr. wrote from a prophecy of Crazy Horse, in which Crazy Horse is quoted, saying:
“Upon suffering beyond suffering, the Red Nation shall rise again, and it shall be a blessing for a sick world… a world longing for light again. In that day there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding… [the] white ones will come to those of my people and ask for wisdom.”
And among varying creeds, this has not been the only prophecy predicting the Native American’s future leadership in a country that once belonged to them ONLY. Consider these words taken from an official church writing entitled “A Proclamation of the Twelve Apostles,” dated 1845 from a well-known religion.
He [God] will assemble the natives, the remnants of Joseph in America, and make of them a great, and strong, and powerful nation; and He will civilize and enlighten them, and will establish a holy city, and temple, and seat of government among them, which shall be called Zion…
The despised and degraded son of the forest (Indian), who has wandered in dejection and sorrow, and suffered reproach, shall then drop his disguise and stand forth in manly dignity, and exclaim to the Gentiles who have envied and sold him— “I am Joseph; does my father yet live?” or, in other words, I am a descendant of that Joseph who was sold into Egypt. You have hated me, and sold me, and thought I was dead; but lo! I live and am heir to the inheritance, titles, honours, priesthood, scepter, crown, throne, and eternal life and dignity of my fathers, who live forever more.” He shall then be ordained… [and] crowned with authority…
Considering this, why do Native Americans continue to put their trust in the white man? This question is one of the greatest curiosities of this author’s mind. Has the white man (Gentiles) successfully integrating the red man into his ranks? These two diverse cultures, white-man and red-man, are vastly different, are they not? Consider for a moment the historical diversity of the white-man and red-man in terms of politics, the economy, entertainment, religion, medicine & food, and overall way of life. Who has been assimilated into the other’s culture more?
In a 1928 book entitled Buffalo Child by Long Lance is recorded the following true excerpt:
The next morning the white minister at the Hudson’s Bay Post sent word to the Indians that he was coming over to visit them. The Suksiseoketak told us that he was going to tell us about the white man’s “Great Spirit.”
When they received this news of the coming of the minister, all of the Indians painted their faces and put on all of their best medicine clothes. The medicine man got out his drum, and soon we were ready to receive him.
When we saw the minister coming, the medicine man started to beat his tom tom and sing one of his medicine songs; for he thought that would please the visitor who represented the white man’s Great Spirit. Our Chief went out and met the minister and shook his hand, and then took him over to meet our minister, the medicine man.
[Then] the minister made a speech. He told our medicine man that he [the medicine man] was preaching something not worthwhile. He said: I didn’t mean for you people to fix up like this; I meant for you to wash the paint off your faces and put your medicine drums away. There is only one God in Heaven, and I am here to tell you about Him.
Indians never interrupt anyone when he is talking, even if he should talk all day—that is an ancient courtesy among Indians—so everyone stood and listened to the minister while he told us of the white man’s God. He made a long speech.
When the missionary finished his speech, our Chief arose and addressed him. He said: Why do you tell us to be good? We Indians are not bad; you white people may be, but we are not. We do not steal; we do not tell lies; we take care of our old and our poor when they are helpless. We do not need that which you tell us about…. you white people did not like the land that your God gave you, and you came over here to take the Indians’ land. If you did that, how do we know, if we should accept your God, that he [the white man] won’t take everything from us…
From this short story, and literally thousands of others, there definitely was historically (from a red-man’s vantage point) a healthy distrust of the white man. Why is the red man, then, so eager to trust and believe him today?
Take medicine, for example. The vaccine involved in today’s well-known virus was created by the white man, but the red man line up in long lines at hospitals and clinics as willing vaccine participants. And this despite that in Arizona the red man is 2.62 times more likely to die of this virus verses the white man since the beginning of the pandemic (as of Nov., 2022); and this from the Center for Disease Control’s own data (wonder.cdc.gov). Did you know that 90% of Japanese politicians won’t take the vaccine? They KNOW it’s bááhádzidii!
Why do you continue to trust in the white man? You have the highest vaccine rates in the country (nicoa.org), despite having 3.5 times the infection rate (also nicoa.org); and masks are mandatory all over the Navajo Nation. Are you really not going to factor in the most obvious causation rationale for these facts?
None of this is conspiracy. What happened to the red man’s medicinal knowledge? Is it now inferior? Why simply believe in the white man’s way of handling pandemics and other quandaries, problems and dilemmas with (also) the white man’s bad advice, bad laws, bad policies, bad politics, and bad examples? Did you suddenly decide to now take advice from that Bilagáana preacher?
I’m sorry Diné, I say this in love, but you are really really really dumb to place your trust in the white man and his lies.
Consider the Diné Mark of the Beast Intervention Bill:
- Whereas, because the Navajo Nation has been recognized as a sovereign nation since 1868, free from federal and state government oversight; and
- Whereas, our sovereignty includes the ability to think for ourselves in the best interest of our Diné people, notwithstanding appropriation of federal and state government funds; and
- Whereas, because the Navajo people have a history of recognizing and having a reliance upon Diyin, or God, for their survival, and prosperity; and
- Whereas, because it is anticipated that federal and state governments will follow-up the COVID-19 pandemic by forced (mandatory) vaccinations; and
- Whereas, federal and state governments recognize that vaccines do injure and kill a percentage of its recipients, and yet vaccination/immunization creators and manufacturers, along with their respective governments, are immune from consumer lawsuits; and
- Whereas, vaccines routinely contain aluminum, formaldehyde, disinfectants, antibiotics, surfactants, preservatives (one of which is mercury), anti-microbials, foreign species DNA, fetal tissue, and viral and bacterial DNA, all of which have significant negative health effects and can cause neurological damage and even death; and
- Whereas, because the Book of Revelation foretells a time when “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond… NO man will be able to buy or sell, save he that has the mark” and that “as many as would not worship the image of the beast (government) should be killed;” and
- Whereas, the Diné people place a sacred trust in their legislators and government officials as their leaders and protectors, to ensure protection of our rights when federal, state and local governments fail, and furthermore infringe upon these same rights, then
- Therefore, be it resolved that no forced vaccination or immunization will occur within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation. No establishment on the Navajo Nation will require ANY individual to undergo involuntary vaccinations or immunizations as a condition of employment. All vaccinations and/or immunizations occurring on Diné land will be voluntary.
