Pope Francis to Get the Doctrine of Destiny (Inter Caetera Papal Bull) Revoked*

Pope Francis to Get the Doctrine of Destiny (Inter Caetera Papal Bull) Revoked*

By Steven Newcomb

On May 4, 1493 Pope Alexander VI issued the Inter Caetera papal bull which called for non-Christian nations to be reduced and subjugated (“barbare nationes deprimantur”). On May 4, 2013, 200 years after our great Shawnee leader Tecumseh fell in battle on October 5, 1813, Dr. Debra Harry (Paiute Nation), Sharon Venne (Cree Nation, Treaty Six) and I saw two velum parchment originals of the papal bull at the General Archives of the Indies in Seville, Spain.

On May 4, 2016 I had the rare opportunity in St. Peter’s Square to call on Pope Francis to formally revoke that document. Our 20-plus years of effort to have that papal decree revoked as a document representative of a series of such documents is not a move toward what is being erroneously called “reconciliation.” It is a move toward decolonization and rectification. It is a move to end the domination language system that Pope Alexander VI directed at our non-Christian ancestors, our Original Free Nations, a language and legacy of devastation and oppression that is ongoing.

Given Pope Francis’s use of the concept of “Mother Earth” in his statement Ladauto Si, his statement of contrition in Bolivia for the terrible treatment of Original Nations by the Catholic Church and other colonizing forces, and his various calls for reform, Pope Francis is the perfect candidate for a revocation of the series of papal bulls of domination. Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, at the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, met with our group for two hours, a delegation from various Original Nations that had gathered during the Long March to Rome to discuss the ongoing call for a revocation of the papal bulls, which began with the Indigenous Law Institute’s efforts back in 1992. The Long March to Rome gathering convened in Florence and Rome from April 30 to May 4, 2016.

After saying a brief prayer in our Lenape language I said to the pope:

“Pope Francis this is a book that I’ve written about the papal bull Inter Caetera from May 4 1493. Today is the 523rd year since that document was issued which called for the domination of our Original Nations and Peoples from Great Turtle Island and all non-Christian nations throughout the planet. That papal document has been extremely destructive to our nations and peoples for more than five centuries. We’re calling on you to formally revoke that document so you can release the spirit of that negative energy that the Vatican placed on us.”

Pope Francis responded, “I will read it.”

I continued, “Thank you. This is a statement we’ve created. I want to thank you so much for agreeing to meet with us.”

It has been 24 years since Birgil Kills Straight, a traditional Headman of the Oglala Lakota Nation, and I began our effort to have the pope revoke the papal bull. Birgil arranged for us to travel with Italian allies on a speaking tour of cities in Northern Italy. Now we have formally delivered that call for revocation directly to the heart and mind of Pope Francis, who has taken the name of St. Francis of Assisi, someone who identified with reverence for nature and the animals.

Birgil and I went to Assisi, Italy in the mid-1990s when Birgil was asked to be part of the drafting team for the preamble to the Earth Charter. He was invited by Father Perzywozny from Poland to sit with eminent scholars in that drafting team. Birgil brought with him an essay he wrote about Oglala Lakota ceremonies and spirituality, explaining by implication that the Catholic Church had not succeeded in attempting to destroy the language and ceremonial traditions of the Oglala Lakota People. And by means of those two aspects of their existence they still communicate with the animals just as Francis of Assisi is said to have done. Father Perzywozny was rather unreceptive to that message, yet the scientists were not because they understood the dire condition in which we now find Mother Earth and how critically important respectful Earth centred teachings are at this time. Birgil Kills Straight then went on to the Vatican and met with Pope John Paul II

In his statement Laudato Si (Encyclical Letter on care for our common home), Pope Francis stated:

“Although it is true that we Christians have at times incorrectly interpreted the Scriptures, nowadays we must forcefully reject the notion that our being created in God’s image and given dominion over the earth justifies absolute domination over other creatures.”

There is no better example of the Church’s claim that Christendom has a right of absolute domination over non-Christians than the wording found in the papal bulls of Pope Nicholas V. He exhorted King Alfonso of Portugal to invade, capture, vanquish, and subdue, all Saracens, pagans and other enemies of Christ, to reduce their persons to perpetual slavery, and take away all their possessions and property.”

The papal bulls of 1493 contain the same language system of domination and dehumanization. It uses words of empire, and domination, subjection, reduction, subjugation, and we are now living in the dire circumstances of that horrible language system.

We proposed to Archbishop Tomasi that an international conference take place with an ongoing dialogue specifically focused on the themes of domination and dehumanization, and a detailed examination of the dominating language found in the papal bulls. I told him

“with respect, there is much of your own history that you do not know.”

And I asked him whether he had ever read the papal bulls in question. He said that he had not. I then informed him in great detail as to the nature of those documents.

I told Archbishop Tomasi that once such ideas and behaviours have been institutionalized in laws and policies, the Church cannot simply invoke Vatican II, for example, and not look back and take responsibility for the wreckage left in the wake of those papal bulls of domination. As far as the Indigenous Law Institute is concerned, this work is not about “reconciliation,” a euphemism for the domination language system which furthers the colonizers’ goal of our assimilating and incorporating us into the body politic of the state. The papal bulls and the boarding and residential schools of domination were intended to incorporate us and absorb us into their colonial system. The papal bulls demonstrate a basic untruth found in the concept of “truth and reconciliation”: The historical record shows no “good relations” or “prior friendship” with the oppressors which needs to be “restored.” Thus, below the surface is the hidden meaning, “truth and untruth.”

This work is about the liberation of our nations and peoples from the behavioural patterns and language system of domination. It is about restoration and healing for our nations and peoples based on our love of and spiritual connection to the land, our languages, our sacred and ceremonial places, and our original free and independent existence as nations extending back before a Western notion of time.

The Slavish Past of the Irish*

The Slavish Past of the Irish

A Caribbean versed in their language is familiar with the Irish roots (pronunciation) very much evident in the Baijan (Barbados) dialect. However, the historical reason for that connection is more than a bit mind blowing to many albeit the English hatred of Irish resistance against British rule.

The history of the African slave trade into the America’s is one that is well-documented as well as largely taught in American schools today.

However, as John Martin of the Montreal-based Center for Research and  Globalization points out in his article ‘The Irish Slave Trade – The Forgotten ‘White’ Slaves,’ it was not just Africans who were traded as slaves.

Indeed, the Irish have a gruesome history as being traded as slaves as well and subjected to similar and sometimes worse treatment than their African contemporaries of the time.

Strangely though, the history of Irish and ‘white’ slavery is by and large ignored in the American educational curriculum today.

In his article, John Martin writes

“The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70 percent of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.”

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000     to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across  the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well

“Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.”

Martin writes how at the hands of the British, the Irish population plummeted due to the slave trade of the 17th century.

“During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, [Oliver] Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.”

Martin goes on to explain that for some reason, the Irish slaves are often remembered as ‘indentured servants.’ However, in most cases during the 17th and 18th centuries, they were no more than “human cattle.”

“…the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period,” writes Martin.

 “It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.”

During the late 1600s, writes Martin, African slaves were far more expensive than their Irish counterparts – Africans would sell for around 50 sterling while Irish were often no more than 5 sterling.

Further, the treatment of Irish slaves was thought to be more cruel than that of African slaves. If an Irish slave was beaten by their owner, it wasn’t considered to be a crime.

Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a  warning to other captives.

The Irish were further exploited when the British began to “breed” Irish women – or girls, sometimes as young as 12 – with African males.

“These new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves. This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company.”

Martin concludes, “In 1839, Britain finally decided on it’s own to end its participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery.”

To Be Washed of their Sins

To Be Washed of their Sins

By Hwaa Irfan

A laundry is a place where you take stained and dirty clothes to be cleaned until it returns to an approved state. The process can be aggressive using unnatural products that damage the environment, and breaks down DNA as in bleach.

The Irish government oversaw workhouses run by Catholic nuns. Prime Minister Enda Kenny stopped short of making any official apology after a 1,000-page report by former Irish Sen. Martin McAleese revealed to the world the stark reality of the Magdalene Laundries. The last Laundry closed in 1996.

The United Nations Committee on Torture in 2011, on one of it’s rare moments of application of justice heard a legal petition from the Justice for Magdalenes group. The UN Committee then rejected the Irish government’s arguments and ordered the fact-finding effort subsequently undertaken by McAleese and officials from six Irish government departments.

‘Magdalene Laundries’ was a giant laundry business run by nuns of the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity, Mercy Sisters, Sisters of Charity and Good Shepherd Sisters. They forced young women into these asylums, torturing and using them for free labor. Held against their will, the girls were degraded, and manipulated into believing they had to be washed of their ‘sins’ for being “fallen women”. That is, for getting pregnant before marriage (including victims of rape), for being “too pretty” and “tempting to men”, mentally disabled, or if a girl was outspoken, strong-willed, or otherwise non-conforming.

An estimated 30,000 women passed through Ireland’s laundries and the last asylum in Ireland closed on September 25, 1996. Doing time for Magdalene survivors was five to eight years.

Girls were forced to work endlessly without compensation, starved, physically abused, and denied their rights and freedom. They endured a daily regime of long periods of prayer and enforced silence. To-date, the “Sisters of Mercy” deny the abuse they have caused, but claim that the documents of many inmates have burned in “accidental” fires. The Irish government has done nothing about this. In fact, to-date the government claims the ladies were here “willingly”. Survivor testimonies prove otherwise.

When it comes to the Magdalene Laundries, the recent expose by Irish singer, writer Sinead O’Connor gives insight as to what was perceived as spoiled and in need of rectification.

At 14 she was sent to the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity laundry in Dublin after she was labelled a ‘problem child.’

“We were girls in there, not women, just children really. And the girls in there cried every day.

“It was a prison. We didn’t see our families, we were locked in, cut off from life, deprived of a normal childhood.

“We were told we were there because we were bad people. Some of the girls had been raped at home and not believed.

“One girl was in because she had a bad hip and her family didn’t know what to do with her. It was a great grief to us.”

“My worried dad thought he was doing the right thing by sending me to be rehabilitated.

He told me he even paid for the privilege of doing so.

“He thought he was doing the right thing. He was convinced into it. He paid them to take me. I never told him the truth of how bad it was.

“There was no rehabilitation there and no therapy. Nothing but people telling us we were terrible people. I stopped the stealing all right. I didn’t want to be sent back there. But at what cost?

Many adopted children lost who they were in that system of brutality. Samantha and Etta Long (twins) wrote of the shock when they found out their origins. They were fortunate that they were adopted at months and raised in a loving, secure environment in the U.S. of their childhood.

After a two year search . . .

Nothing prepared us for what we found.Margaret Bullen had been committed to Ireland’s Industrial School system at the age of two years because her mother was unwell and her father was unable to take care of their seven children. That was the end of Margaret and the  outside world. By the age of five she was preparing breakfast for 70 children including herself. This work started at 4am after kneeling in the cold to say the rosary first. A fellow female child slave from this institution has told me that Margaret was a fretful bed-wetter, and to this day that woman can still imagine the smell of urine as the girls knelt to pray before dawn.Margaret continued her childhood and puberty in these institutions, without the chance to grow up. At age 16, she was transferred to the Gloucester Street Magdalene Laundry just off O’Connell Street in our capital city. There she toiled, unpaid for the rest of her life. The working conditions were hard, with long hours of tortuous labour carried out in the strictest silence. Meals were meagre, and recreation time consisted of other types of unpaid work, such as embroidery or basket-making. When we were reunited, Margaret was 42, but looked like a woman 20 years older. . .At age 19 she gave birth to my twin sister Etta and I, followed three years later by another daughter, whom we have never met. Upon being informed that her daughters had traced her and were ready to meet, Margaret had an emotional breakdown because she did not recall that she had given birth. . . But all of the documentation was verified, not to mention our strong resemblance to her. . .Margaret died whilst still on the inside. She was one day shy of her 51st birthday. The laundry ceased to operate in 1996, but the women continued to live there in     the same conditions as before. Some people have asked why we didn’t take her out but she was so deeply institutionalised that we would not have had the necessary understanding or qualifications to deal with her possible  re-integration into society.

Only 700 of the survivors have been finally compensated under the scheme being headed up by Mr Justice John Quirke. 55% of the applicants will receive more than €50,000 each. The cost of the scheme is expected to be €59m.

Mari Steed was not as fortunate as Samantha and Etta Long. Now director of Justice for Magdalene,  Mari a daughter of a Magdalene survivor was born at the Bessboro mother-and-baby home in Cork in 1960 and sent to the United States for adoption in December 1961.

Mari writes she was one of the more than 200 children involved in the vaccine trials conducted by then Burroughs Wellcome (now Glaxo SmithKline) and was one of more than 2,000 children secretly sent to the United States from Ireland for adoption.

Blurr the history and identity. . .

Like Samantha and Etta Mari said she had a “very happy” adoptive upbringing but became curious about her natural mother in the early 1990s. Finding the truth was not easy, a path filled with “harassment”, “lies” and “a road block” at every stage, but Mari was reunited with her birth mother in 2001.

The Adoption Rights Alliance says there are more than 42,000, and possibly as many as 50,000, adopted people in Ireland. In some cases in the 50s and 60s, children were adopted illegally from institutions, and their births were registered as if they were the natural-born children of the adoptive parents. The groups have no figures on the number of children affected.

If there is a tinge of familiarity with what has been happening today in with the rise of the Policed State, The Magdalen laundries were originally British institutions that were imposed on Ireland under Westminster approval under the presumed independence of Ireland in 1922 – a Free State, but a British State. The laundries were a specific form of the workhouse, a remedy for the poor, a system devised by the British Empire. Just another manifestation of the Doctrine of Discovery.

Britain is to pay out £19.9 million in costs and compensation to more than 5,000 Kenyans, who were severely mistreated under British colonial rule during the 1950s Mau Mau uprising, Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague has said.

Hague told the House of Commons that the payment was being made in “full and final settlement” of a high court action brought by five of the victims who suffered from torture and other ill-treatment, including castration, rape and beatings.

According to reports, more than 5,000 victims are each expected to be given £2,600 as part of the multi-million pound compensation deal.

“The British government sincerely regrets that these abuses took place and that they marred Kenya’s progress to independence. Torture and ill-treatment are abhorrent violations of human dignity which we unreservedly condemn,” Hague told the MPs.

At least 10,000 people died during the 1952-1960 Mau Mau uprising against British colonial rule, with some sources giving far higher estimates.

Calling for Indigenous Sovereignty – support the ‘Idle No More’ movement

Te Wharepora Hou

45006_10151351018421273_828717934_n

Press Release: 28 December 2012

Te Wharepora Hou Māori women’s group is encouraging more support from Aotearoa to a global call for indigenous sovereignty. The “Idle No More” movement is an indigenous uprising which started in Saskatchewan in November. It was a First Nation’s people’s response to the Canadian government pushing through resource legislation without the ‘free, prior and informed consent’ of its indigenous people.

A focal point of the movement is the hunger strike being taken by Chief Theresa Spence of the Attiwapiskat Nation. She is on day 16 of her fasting in a bid to have Prime Minister Harper acknowledge indigenous leadership and negotiate directly with her for better living conditions for the country’s First Peoples.

Marama Davidson of Te Wharepora Hou says “The call for indigenous sovereignty also acknowledges the unique relationship that indigenous people have with their lands, waters and resources. Iwi and hapū here have always upheld our caregiving responsibility over resources. But like many indigenous…

Idle No More: New Shift to an Indigenous Reality

Idle No More: New Shift to an Indigenous Reality

By Hwaa Irfan

The Mau Mau of Kenya did not wait for the dawn of a New Age to lay claim to justice. Tortured and brutalized by the British in the 1950s, members of the Mau Mau have literally confronted Britain with its colonial past and present when lawyer Martyn Day departed from London’s High Court with hopeful news. Prior to that Britain threw a disclaimer stating that they are not responsible for the acts of others, despite their continuance to this day.

London’s High Court ruled on October 5 2012 that three living, but now elderly members of the Mau Mau who were seriously tortured (one was castrated) can proceed with their claims against the British government. This means, for the first time ever, victims of British colonialism can due Britain!

“This is an historic judgment that will reverberate around the world,” Day said.

“There will undoubtedly be victims of colonial torture from Malaya to Yemen, from Cyprus to Palestine, who will be reading this judgment with great care.”

Day was welcomed by supporters waiting in expectation outside the High Court, including the 3 non-English speaking octogenarian plaintiffs, Wambugu Wa Nyingi, Jane Muthoni Mara, and Paulo Muoka Nzili who were beaten, raped, and castrated. Joy is joy amongst the indigenous who do not wait to express it! Day’s news back in Nairobi was responded by dance, and nostalgic ballads from the struggle for independence.

Britain of course launched an appeal, which was turned down on October 26.

Connections are not being made, as our colonial global elite clamp down on their citizens around the world stripping hard won rights, and drive thousands into poverty while they gamble with the billions made by the working population – the 95%!

It was in the 1940s that Kenya’s resistance movement, the Mau Mau had gained great support across the nation. Those who died must be turning over in their graves as their country under U.S imperialism take control of Somalia. Under British rule, thousands of Kenyans were driven from their fertile land, and it is Britain that led the recent global bout of and grab in Africa and elsewhere.

Under a pledge of oath, the Mau Mau swore to fight for their independence, and fed into the forests to do so.

By the mid-1950s, 150,000 Kikuyu were detained without trial, and up to 1.5 million displaced, and 30 Europeans killed along with British Kikuyu loyalists who betrayed their homeland.  The kind of treatment meted out by the British was described by one female survivor, Mara. She was 15 at the time and incarcerated at the notorious Gatithi camp. On  the second day four guards pinned her to the ground: one pushed her legs apart and kept them apart with spiked army boots, another kicked a glass bottle of hot water up her vagina.

Another survivor, Paulo Muoka Nzili was castrated with pliers used to castrate cows.

The new puppet government after independence sustained a ban on the Mau Mau and drove the survivors underground. The ban was not lifted until 2003 when most had died.

Since 2009, Katie Engelhart reports they have been trying t get their case heard!

The British lawyer who succeeded in doing so, Martyn Day had this to say:

 “You know, we [Brits] hold ourselves out as being pretty good, fair, decent, honest sorts of people,”

“We look at the Germans and the Japanese and other people who have done really terrible things. We hold ourselves out to be rather different. But actually, one recognizes through cases like this that we have sides to our character that are … not quite as bad, but pretty bad. It’s important that we understand that.”

As many around the world prepared for the dawn of a New Age – the transition from 13 to a new B’aqtun (December 21-22, 2012), many indigenous including the Mayans have been preparing to not uplift humanity, but their own communities as well and that includes rights on a more holistic basis. They are a people who have been faced with what the rest of the world has been experiencing, and has yet to experience.

‘Idle No More’ is the name of the recent round in struggle, which has been taking place in Ottawa, Canada, where the largest student march the world has ever seen took place in 2011-2012. Their mission. . .
“Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honours and fulfils Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations; live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth.

December 10th was the date that indigenous people and allies stood in solidarity across Canada to assert Indigenous sovereignty and to work towards a sustainable, renewable future. The challenge is Desmarai is controlled Canada – the family that owns Power Corporation,  foreign corporations in Europe and China, the French-speaking Quebec media as well as a control over every Canadian Prime Minister since Pierre Trudeau with close ties to the Rothschilds, The Rockefellers, Spanish royalty, The Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group. However, Idle No More, “….recognize that there may be backlash, and encourage people to stay strong and united in spirit.”

One non-native participant n 21st had this to say about the 21st:

“That was the most amazing day I have ever been a part of. We Gathered in Peace. We Gathered In Solidarity. We Stood Proud and Tall. We Spoke in Truths. December 21st 2012, to me, will always be remembered as, the Day I stood up, with all of you, in a We rally. We did this. We set the stage for the world to listen and really hear us. Pride, Peace, Solidarity, will forever be in my Heart, and Mind when I look back upon this day. We, the Grassroots, our Leadership & Non Natives shared a stage, shared our ideas.”

That day Idle No More blocked 17 highways outside of Sault Ste Marie causing disruption to those seeking to go about their affairs. In a country that has achieved its sovereignty through invasion followed by various methods of ethnic cleansing like Australia, it is not only the indigenous who are seeking their identity, but the occupying societies as well, and this is fully recognized by those claiming the right to exist. The elite not only alienated the indigenous, but they also alienated those who profited for them, and alienated the environment as well.

That day, First Nations from around the Salish Sea joined in solidarity including drumming, singing and dancing.
