If so, why?
And go like this page, the truth will be revealed to those unaware. http://www.facebook.com/?sk=messages&:tid=1728555414355#!/pages/The-US-Government-needs-to-recognize-Native-American-Genocide/167984766572723
not only the genocide that has occurred in the past but the one that is still being perpetrated by the governments of usa and canada. it has not stopped, they just changed the tactics. government definitions of who can claim to be native (blood quantum) is designed to breed out our nations. intentional adverse conditions on many reservations is designed to force native people out of our communities and disappear into the general population. there are many more ways your governments are trying to ":do away with their indian problem.":
for those who might doubt there was a genocide against native people in north america…..
Adopted by Resolution 260 (III) A of the United Nations General Assembly on 9 December 1948.
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
п‚· (a) Killing members of the group:
(the many massacres and campaigns aimed at killing native americans regardless of age or gender is well documented. Nothing more needs to be said here.)
п‚· (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group:
(the conditions imposed on native people on reservations was designed to cause them harm. Studies have also shown that the stereotype in the dominant culture and the portrayal of native people as war like, drunk, and lazy, also affects native children and how they see themselves.)
п‚· (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part:
(the reservation system was designed to вЂњcontainвЂќ native people so they could be destroyed more efficiently. Starvation was one tactic and biological warfare another. today the governments allows toxic waste from nuclear plants and mining operations to be dumped on native reservations. many reservation in usa and canada do not have drinking water because of this contamination and the birth defects and cancer rates are the highest in the country.)
п‚· (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group:
(up until the late 1980s, native women were sterilized as a matter of policy by IHS doctors. These sterilizations were done without their consent and in many cases against the womenвЂ™s will.)
п‚· (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
(native children were taken by force from their families and sent to residential schools often hundreds of miles from home. There they were trained to be вЂњwhiteвЂќ and in many cases were sexually and physically abused. Over 50,000 children between the ages of 3 and 15 were killed in these institutions in canada alone and similar numbers in usa. many of these schools remained open into the 1990s and survivors of them are still alive. Until 1973, native children in usa were also removed from their mothers as infants and adopted out to white families as an attempt to assimilate native people into white society.)
If it’s conclusive of course. I’m sick of a ‘certain’ other race complaining about their population decline when its the Native Americans, the ones they brought down, who are experiencing the worst population decline. It sickens me.
