Remembering the Life and Legacy of John Trudell

12/8/15

John Trudell, noted activist, poet and Native thinker, walked on this morning after a lengthy bout with cancer. His family included some of his last messages to Indian country in a press release. Among them: “I want people to remember me as they remember me.”

John Trudell was a Santee Dakota activist, artist, actor, and poet, who led a life dedicated to indigenous human rights, land and language issues. He helped spark a spoken word movement that is a continuation of Native American oral traditions. He walked on December 8 at the age of 69.

Born on February 15, 1946 in Omaha, he spent his early years living on the Santee Reservation in northern Nebraska. His father was Santee and his mother was of Mexican Indian heritage. He had a normal life until his mother died at age 6, and the new rock and roll music resonated with him from ages 9-12. He said high school was not good for him and would enlist in the U.S. Navy from 1963 until 1967, to get away. He married Fenicia “Lou” Ordonez in 1968 in California, briefly attended college, thinking he would go into radio and broadcasting.

Everything changed in 1969 when Native American students and organizers, Trudell among them, occupied Alcatraz Island from November 20, 1969 to June 11, 1970. That group became “Indians of All Tribes,” and they issued the manifesto, We Hold the Rock, and eventually the book, Alcatraz is Not an Island. The Alcatraz Occupation became an incubator for the nascent Native American rights movement, including the American Indian Movement (AIM) in Minneapolis. The legal basis for this occupation was the Treaty of Fort Laramie of 1868, which said that any abandoned federal property would revert to the Indian Nations. This treaty’s legality would also inspire many more actions across Indian country. Trudell has always maintained that all these political actions were not just moral, ethical issues but were legal issues, according to Native treaty rights and federal trust responsibilities.

Trudell used his broadcasting experience on the airwaves of “Radio Free Alcatraz” (a clip from the program can be heard on the 2005 documentary Trudell). His marriage would end during this period as he become a leading Native spokesman attracting national attention. The negotiations over Alcatraz, the proposed Indian Center and the occupation itself fell apart in 1971, but so many names of Native activists, organizers, artists, writers and actors from that time would become prominent in the ensuing struggles, movement and documentation.

Public Education for Servitude: Self-Educate

“The ability to think, the ability to make the distinction between what you believe and what you know.” ~ Dr. Yosef Ben Jochannan

CrowHouse DVD's can be

Education is ALWAYS a political project. We’ve been fooled into thinking that the primary purpose of education is to secure a job, be “comfortable” or to obtain “things.” Wrong answers!

The purpose of education is to empower people to defend and advance themselves – to insure people’s survival and development, to equip people to solve problems and to socialize people to embrace and accept certain values and practices.

The educational system of the U.S. prepares us to: 1. Identify with and defend U.S. political and corporate interests (military, police, security). 2.Become a semi-skilled, underpaid and apolitical labor force. 3. Become professional overseers/managers of corporate interests. 4. Be apolitical completely or to only entertain “legitimate” methods of resistance (petitions, voting, courts marches, etc.). 5. Enrich and empower the very people/institutions that dominate us. Any serious attempt to create alternative curriculums and independent schools must effectively address these issues. Our education system must instill self-love, self-determination, self-defense, Black solidarity, cooperative economics, and the will and ability to dismantle the empire, free the land, and advance/protect our people…” ~ Agyei Tyehimba

Public Education 4 Servitude

In the video above Dr. Amos Wilson brilliantly Lectures his black audience as to how the minority few European males define reality, through the changing of how words are defined, what intelligence is and by controlling the narrative, what is important, what is not and when. Dr, Amos, takes up the context of education and how it is used to enslave, not only African Americans, but the masses in general, the average European, as well as the whole of the western so called civilization, are dominated by the reality defined by this psychotic few to be correct.

Whose reality is real? Reality is subjective. Reality is shaped by one’s place in the world. To deny a person’s reality, is to deny their place in the world.

In The Age of The Internet Ignorance is a Choice

12 Dozen Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free

on 15 July, 2014 at 18:53

  Internet Age and Ignorance

All education is self-education.  Period.  It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop.  We don’t learn anything we don’t want to learn.

Those people who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own are the only ones who earn a real education in this world.

Take a look at any widely acclaimed scholar, entrepreneur or historical figure you can think of.  Formal education or not, you’ll find that he or she is a product of continuous self-education.

If you’re interested in learning something new, this article is for you.  Broken down by subject and/or category, here are several top-notch self-education resources I have bookmarked online over the past few years.

Note that some of the sources overlap between various subjects of education.  Therefore, each has been placed under a specific subject based on the majority focus of the source’s content.

‘The future as I see it’~ Marcus Garvey

Marcus Garvey – The Future As I See It
It comes to the individual, the race, the nation, once in a life time to decide upon the course to be pursued as a career. The hour has now struck for the individual Negro as well as the entire race to decide the course that will be pursued in the interest of our own liberty.

Marcus Garvey- Look For Me in the Whirl wind
Twentieth-century black nationalism was greatly influenced by Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican immigrant to the United States who founded the United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) in 1914. In an essay titled ‘‘The Future as I See It,’’ Garvey insisted that the UNIA was ‘‘organized for the absolute purpose of bettering our condition, industrially, commercially, socially, religiously and politically.’’ Garvey and the UNIA also promoted black emigration to Africa as a program of ‘‘national independence, an independence so strong as to enable us to rout others if they attempt to interfere with us’’ (‘‘Speech by Marcus Garvey’’). One of the UNIA’s main efforts was to establish black-owned businesses, the best known being the Black Star Line, a firm which planned to transport people and goods to Africa. Although 35,000 investors flocked to buy five-dollar shares of Black Star Line stock, the shipping firm and the UNIA’s other commercial ventures failed. Garvey was convicted of mail fraud in 1923 and eventually deported, but he remained a heroic figure to many future black nationalists.

Marcus Mosiah Garvey Speaks

If the White man has the Idea of a white God let him worship his God as he desires. We have found a new ideal. Because God has No color, and yet it is HUMAN to see everything through ones own spectacles, and since the white people have seen their god thru their white spectacles, we have only now started to see our God thru our own Spectacles.

But we believe in the God of Ethiopia, the everlasting God; God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy One, the one God of all the Ages; that is the God of whom we believe but we shall worship HIM thru the spectacles of Ethiopia.

Harmonic Standard 13 Moon Calendar Year

13 Moons of 28 Days +1 Day Out of Time = 365 Days

13 Moons x 28 days = 364 days = 52 seven-day weeks. The 365th day of the year is called the Day Out of Time, a day to celebrate peace through culture, time is art and practice universal forgiveness so that everyone can start the next year fresh!

In the graphic above, the small numbers at the bottom of each square are the 12 Month/Gregorian calendar dates. For example, find the very first day of the 13 Moon calendar – do you see below where it says “7-26” – this is the Gregorian date July 26! Every day on the 13 Moon calendar includes the Gregorian date – this is so we don’t get lost in this time of transition.

Now find your birthday on the 13 Moon calendar. For example, if your birthday is October 13, look for the day on the calendar that is marked “10-13”. Note that October 13 is the 24th day of the Electric Moon. Electric Moon is the third moon of the 13 moons. You can write this date as 3.24.

Now find today’s date on the 13 Moon calendar. Note the moon and day of the moon it falls on.

This is all you need to know to begin following this basic 13 Moon Cycle! No need to memorize obscure rhymes like “30 days hath September,…” because every moon is exactly 28 days – the first day of the moon is always the first day of the week, the last day of the moon is always the last day of the week!

This consistent regularity is what makes the 13 Moon calendar a harmonic timespace matrix. This is just the tip of the iceberg of fourth-dimensional time…

Congratulations! You’ve now learned how to keep time within a harmonic matrix!
