12-26-2016 ~ 150 Years Ago Today Largest Mass Execution in US History
Riding out :: Preparing for the circle up :: Final day of the #Dakota38+2 A spiritual Ride out of Land of Memories into Mankato where the largest mass US public execution happened in our dark history of settlers ordered by President Lincoln. This day marks a day of healing for our people. Never forgotten . #NoMoreDakotaExile
The hanging of 38 Sioux Indians in Minnesota December 26, 1862 was the failure “again” of the U.S. Government to honor it’s treaties with Indian Nations. Indians were not given the money or food set forth to them for signing a treaty to turn over more than a million acres of their land and were forced to live on a reservation.
Mary Todd Lincoln had over spent decorating and cleaning the Executive mansion blowing the entire four year budget allocated by Congress in a matter of months then tried to cover it up; when Lincoln found out he immediately dispatched Congress to quietly approve two appropriations to pay her bills which were taken from the annuity payments due to the Dakota Indians.
Indian agents kept the treaty money and food that was to go to the Indians; One local trader, Andrew Myrick, said of the Indians’ plight, “If they are hungry, let them eat grass or their own dung.” The food was sold to White settlers; food given to the Indians was spoiled and not fit for dogs to eat. Indian hunting parties went off reservation land looking for food to feed their families; one hunting group took eggs from a White settlers land. Trader Andrew Myrick was found dead his mouth stuffed with grass.
Authorities in Minnesota asked President Lincoln to order the immediate execution of all 303 Indian males found guilty. Lincoln, concerned with how this would play with the Europeans, whom he was afraid were about to enter the war on the side of the South offered the following compromise to the politicians: They would pare the list of those to be hung down to 39. In return, Lincoln promised to kill or remove every Indian from the state and provide Minnesota with 2 million dollars in federal funds although he only owed the Sioux 1.4 million for the land.
President Lincoln, the Great Emancipator ordered the largest mass execution in American History, where the guilt of those to be executed was entirely in doubt. Regardless of how Lincoln defenders seek to play this, it was nothing more than murder to obtain the land of the Santee Sioux and to appease his political cronies in Minnesota.
On December 26, 1862 President Lincoln notified Sibley that he should cause to be executed thirty-nine of the 303 convicted Santees, Execution date was the 26th of December. At the last minute, one Indian was given a reprieve. About ten o’clock the thirty-eight condemned men were marched from the prison to the scaffold. They sang the Sioux death song until soldiers pulled white caps over their heads and placed nooses around their necks. At a signal from an army officer, the control rope was cut and thirty-eight Santee Sioux dangled lifeless in the air.
12-26-16 ~ via Oceti Sakowin Camp … The Real Winter Makes an Appearance
Last night 5 men were caught in a vehicle a little over a mile away from the shelter where our team has been working. They called around 3.
We called BIA, reached out for Security… the storm blocked almost all means for help. 2 people helping out at the shelter went in search of local vehicles to pull them out with and came back without success. 3 of the OSCM team went out to scout the conditions, to see what was possible, that’s this video.
They made it to the main road out of Cannon Ball to 1806. They couldn’t see the headlights of the vehicle, but the did see that the snow was blowing 3-4 foot drifts over the roadway that vehicles couldn’t have traversed without a plow… our guys were climbing over them. They had to come back and all we could do was pray for them, and let them know what we were discovering at each step.
This morning at 9 we got confirmation that everyone is safe and accounted for, including the 2 young men who came up from camp on snowmobile, that plan to be shuttling them each here.
***Would this be the situation if Morton County & Co had not persisted in blocking the highway at the bridge?***
The DOT needed to test the bridge for safety before the blockade could be removed. They and Morton County have been repeatedly assured that DOT personnel would be safe. As our collective camp documentation assures, we are PRAYERFUL, and would not interfere with such a vital process.
We deeply appreciate your continued support as we hold fast here in the snow, against DAPL. Learn more about our camp at http://www.ocetisakowincamp.org

“Water is life. Water is the center of everything. Water is female. As females, we must stand up for the water. We have no choice. Without water, we all die. It’s common sense to me. We must save the water.”
12-24-16 ~ Dakota Spirit Riders traveling through a snow storm today. We are strong & resilient.
The pipeline has not been stopped, just rerouted. This fight is far from over. Comment “YES I STAND ” if you stand in solidarity with Standing Rock and all indigenous Native American nations in this fight to stop the DAPL
12-24-16 ~ Greg Grey Cloud… “Today a veterinarian in New Salem, North Dakota refused to help out with a sick horse from Standing Rock based on political beliefs. He claimed that “if it became known that we were helping the horses associated with Standing Rock we might lose clients because our clients have strong feelings about what is happening down there.”
“Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health, and the advancement of medical knowledge.” http://tinyurl.com/jkoq9bq

12-24-16 ~ Redhawk… We are currently preparing for anywhere from 9″ to 2 feet of snow tomorrow. The camp is ready, and we are all in celebration of Christmas and the coming holidays despite the storm. I want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone that has shown love, sent smoke, shared prayers, and offered donations for everyone at camp. I can only speak for myself, but I know everyone here at camp is very grateful for your solidarity and the outpouring of love. We will defeat this pipeline, but none of this would have been possible without the world standing together in support. From my heart to yours, thank you.
To my little sister, Renee. I love you, and i’ll see you soon. Merry Christmas!
Happy Holidays from Standing Rock Rising.
12-24-16 ~ Aaron Dorn… Anyone know an attorney who could look at my case and offer some advice. I will fire my public pretender and represent myself if he doesn’t file motions to discharge all false charges laid against me and/or file for a change of venue. I am facing two felonies and a misdemeanor which are all bogus, obviously. The prosecutors are trying to steal my truck as a forfeiture and have had possession of my driver’s license, passport, all my cash and credit cards as well as my truck since thanksgiving. They deny they have my phone. My public pretender has gotten a court order for them to release and gave me the court order but when I went to the Morton county sheriffs to have them release my property, they refused, even called the prosecutor who signed it and she refused. BTW, my public pretender’s office is located two blocks away from the courthouse which makes me feel very uncomfortable putting my life in his hands, if you know what I mean. i will include every video and court docs i have in this message. I was arrested and beaten by Morton county sheriff’s department for passing a patrol car on the way to the Thanksgiving Day action in Mandan. I arrived at rosebud camp about a week before Thanksgiving and made daily supply runs for the medics and construction crews. I am sure this is why the police targeted me and stole my truck. Every time I went in these supply runs I was followed by patrol vehicles and unmarked police vehicles. Medical and construction supplies are still in my truck. I was on the bridge the night the DAPL funded police/military force use lethal force against us. I was teargased, shot with less-lethal rounds and drenched with water in freezing temperatures. I was an infantryman in the NY National Guard and none of my training compared to that night. Except the teargas. I have witnessed firsthand and been a victim of police abuse, lies and the misuse of our justice system all for exercising my right to peaceably assemble on public land. On Monday morning (12/19) as we were praying at the courthouse I had a Morton County Sherriff shove me off the sidewalk from behind. One of the legal team saw this and asked for the officer’s name and badge number. He gave his badge number but when he noticed I was standing behind the legal aid worker he said he will refuse to give his name and walked away. Had bit of a guilty conscious.
12-24-16 ~ Wes Clark Jr…. TO THE HATERS, ACCUSERS AND NAYSAYERS:
Some of you seem to think I personally profited from the Veterans Stand deployment to Standing Rock. This is patently untrue. No money from the GoFundMe page has passed through my hands or will pass through my hands as I have never had access to the funds and was told repeatedly that I had no say or control over how the funds were spent as Veterans Stand was not an official NGO at the time nor do I hold any title or authority in the organization. This operation was simply a call out to see who would come and stand in support of our Constitution and the protection of both our environment and the indigenous peoples within the borders of the United States who we have horribly mistreated throughout our history and whose mistreatment continues to the present day.
To those hating me for apologizing to the Lakota – I don’t care what prideful haters think so feel free to keep despising me but understand that you leave a clear digital trail right back to yourself as to what kind of person you are.
To those hating me for “stealing” money, you are repeating falsehoods published by online, unsourced periodicals with no facts. When the money raised has been spent and Michael A Wood jr publishes how the money was spent, the websites which initially spread these lies will either issue a front page apology or be sued out of existence for libel by a competent legal team who will go after the websites, the individual reporters as well as the right wing PR firms that work for the hydrocarbon industries that funded and pushed the libel in the first place (as well as the human rights and Constitutional violations that took place at Standing Rock for months). Be careful what you forward and spread, because despite the facts put forth by myself and Michael A Wood jr, you continually reprint, share lies and therefore are also guilty of libel.
There is such a thing as truth and justice in this world and you’re going to get it whether you like it or not. I suggest you put on your big boy pants and start dealing with reality rather than the phantasm of fear and paranoia orchestrated by our corporate overlords.
