“American’s greatest mass hanging — the execution of 38 Sioux Indians — was personally ordered by the ‘Great Emancipator,’ President Abraham Lincoln.”
Largest mass hanging in United States history38 Santee “Sioux” Indian menMankato, Minnesota, Dec. 16, 1862
What brought about the hanging of 38 Sioux Indians in Minnesota December 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 be forced to live on a reservation. Indian agents keep the treaty money and food that was to go to the Indians, the food was sold to White settlers, food that was given to the Indians was spoiled and not fit for a dog to eat. Indian hunting parties went off the reservation land looking for food to feed their families, one hunting group took eggs from a White settlers land and the rest is history.

Plenty Horses’ defense after slaying Lt. Casey near Pine Ridge, South Dakota. “Five years I attended Carlisle Indian School and was educated in the ways of the white man. When I returned to my people, I was an outcast among them. I was no longer an Indian. I was not a white man. I was lonely. I shot the lieutenant so I might make a place for myself among my people. I am now one of them. I shall be hung, and the Indians will bury me as a warrior.” He was finally released.

 Artifacts and Remains Found During Highway Construction to be Repatriated
While resurfacing a portion of U.S. 23 earlier this year, a road crew in Oscoda, Michigan found some remains and artifacts. Because the remains have been confirmed to be Native American, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is now working with the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe to return the remains and the items under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.
The MDOT worked with Michigan State University’s Forensic Science lab to determine the origin of the remains, reported Michigan Radio.
“The relationship between the Michigan Department of Transportation and the federally recognized Indian tribe is strong,” William Johnson, curator at Ziibiwing Cultural Center, run by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe to educate people about tribal ways and culture, told Michigan Radio.
Johnson said reburying remains is important to the tribe.
“The ceremonies normally start in the morning with the lighting of the sacred fire. The use of all the medicines like sage, sweet grass, and tobacco and cedar are used in the ceremonies,” he told Michigan Radio. “The ancestors are spoken to in the language, especially if those are ancient ancestors like many of them are.”

I am proud where I come from and so are the rest of the 2.5 Million Aboriginals across canada. We are stronger today, than we were 50 years ago. I have hope that everything harper is trying to do will be stopped.
Reblog this in support of your first nations people in Canada. 

writing his name is so stirring.
it’s all these people coming together and saying - to power - “yeah buddy we’ve got our eye on you, so watch it.”
it takes something that could be seen as unfocused to a disinterested public, who doesn’t get Native perspectives from mainstream media, and shows unmistakably that it has a focus, and a purpose, and a goal, and it is political.
you treat these people right, HARPER.
