by Wit n Yix Thursday, Nov. 16, 2000 at 10:53 PM

Ward is an attacker of AIM elders for years having never done anything for the movemetn but sip Cappacino in Boulder and Womanize. Read for yourself years of Churchill destructive infiltration along with Means and Morrison

errorArticles produced by the AIM Grand Governing Council on the continuing confict with imposters claiming AIM leadership who never played any significant role with AIM at all. Support for the COntras would and could never be accepted by any AIM leader or members.In fact they would be held persona non grata. Please read with an open mind. Things arent't always the way they seem.

P R E S S S T A T E M E N T - F O R I M M E D I A T E R E L E A S E

November 3, 1999
United States Government War
Against the American Indian Movement
Following a lengthy twenty-five (25) year investigation of Ward Churchill, Glen Morris and their Indian and non-Indian co-conspirators, collaborators, dupes and unwitting pawns, the American Indian Movement Grand Governing Councils Council on Security and Intelligence is releasing this lengthy report. We do so because of the continued attacks by this group of deceitful and treacherous frauds against the legitimate leadership of the American Indian Movement and of our international political and diplomatic Corp, the International Indian Treaty Council. They perpetuate these attacks by fraudulently representing themselves as being members of the American Indian Movement, and the so-called confederation of autonomous aim chapters, now using their web site to sow disruption, division and confusion.
The ringleaders of this conspiracy are two wannabees, white men masquerading as Indians, who are very deceitful and treacherous individuals by the name of Ward Churchill and Glen Morris (see Ministry for Information on Glen Morris and Russell Means, the CIA/Contra Connection). We are convinced they are the continuation of a campaign to destroy the American Indian Movement and its leadership that began in the White House office of Richard Nixon in 1972 during the Trail of Broken Treaties march on Washington D.C. in November, 1972 (see Trail of Broken Treaties Manifesto in AIM Archives; also see Council to the President, John Wesley Dean III Correspondence to Acting FBI Director W. Mark Felt under AIM's Council on Security and Intelligence Page).
Four items that should be given special attention are:

1. Churchill's book, Agents of Repression, page 438, item 49, reads:
"49. Author Churchill experienced one of these sweeps firsthand when, while driving across Pine Ridge on June 27, 1975, the day after the gunfight at the Jumping Bull residence that claimed the lives of AIM member Joe Stuntz and FBI agents Jack Coler and Ron Williams, he stopped to urinate alongside the road, about five miles south of Porcupine. Over the ridge came an APC, accompanied by some 20 FBI and BIA police personnel, moving "on line," carrying M-16s, and dressed in Vietnam-style jungle fatigues, boots and bush hats. Most of the group was also wearing military-issue flack-jackets. Needless to say, the whole scene afforded a sense of deja-vu to the viewer, given that he had spent a year in Southeast Asia in combat."

Churchill further states that he served in Vietnam as an Information Specialist. We say, misinformation specialist.

2. The second item is an interview conducted with Churchill by Amy Goodman and Bernard White of Radio Pacifica and Station WBAI 99.5 FM, New York City. Again, these are Churchill's own words:
"Well, in 1969, after I came out of the Army, I was a draftee and sent to Vietnam. I came back from that a little bit irritated of the posture of my government. I'm also an American Indian and I was sent to Southeast Asia to uphold a treaty, which did not require that I be there. I considered it a fact before I even left there that while I was over there that, the United States was in the process of standing in complete violation of 371 odd treaties that were on record with my people or related peoples right here in North America. If were going to be busy enforcing treaties, it ought to home, not over there.
With that perspective, I became politically active and had a roommate, at least part of the time, in Peoria, Illinois, which is where Im originally from. His name was Mark Clark. Mark was a downstate defense captain for the Black Panther Party in Illinois, where in December 1969, he was the first person killed in an armed raid on an apartment on Monroe Street in Chicago, which also took the life by assassination of the chairman of the Illinois Panthers, Fred Hampton. That, I guess you can say, caught my attention. And since there were clear indications from the onset of direct FBI involvement in that, and since there was a clear attempt made to cover that up, I became active in the effort to bring out the information of exactly how the murders of Hampton and Clark had occurred.
And one thing followed another from there. I became involved in the Leonard Peltier case. After I joined the American Indian Movement, a couple of years after the point that I'm talking about here."
(See Churchill File, Council on Security and Intelligence).
This is no coincidence. Our investigations show that the FBI raid on the Jumping Bull residence, which sparked the firefight that led to the deaths of FBI agents, Jack Coler and Ron Williams, and AIM member Joe Stuntz, was, in fact, a botched FBI job caused by agents/informants of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and/or other military and intelligence agencies that may well have instigated the shootout or, at least, were in and about the Jumping Bull community. FBI agent informants were no doubt also involved in the death of Anna Mae Aquash. The fact is, Fred Hampton, Mark Clark, agents Jack Coler and Ron Williams, and AIM member, Joe Stuntz, and Anna Mae Aquash are dead, and our brother, Leonard Peltier remains in prison after 23 years.

3. The third item is the blatant manipulation of Peter Mathieson, Oliver Stone, CBS and 60-Minutes, regarding the "Mr. X" hoax, which was orchestrated by David Hill, Bob Robideaux, and Ward Churchill. (See Dino Butler article published in News from Indian Country, May 1995). In the article Dino states, "There is no Mr. X. There was no white man coming to our camp that day bringing dynamite. Those are all lies created to keep Leonard in jail longer." (See Council on Security and Intelligence, Churchill File).

4. You may also see Jodi Rave interview of Ward Churchill in November of 1993 at Boulder, Colorado, specifically the last three paragraphs on page two (2) which continues to page three (3).
(Remainder of interview can be found in Interviews).
"Question: That must have changed just recently?
Answer: Yes, about three years ago, the name of the university, it was still a college then. So I agreed to teach some extension courses for them. I thought that once I would do that, and at Loneman School on Pine Ridge I would do some workshops there ... but what they assigned me to do was to teach the police force in Rapid City.
Question: Oh, really?
Answer: Yah, the guys were taking courses on weekends and shit, so they could make their rank. It was a money maker for the school. I needed the money. I was teaching the Rapid City Police Department about the American Indian Movement."

5. For those of you that have visited our web site, aimovement.org, see the remarkable progress that the legitimate leadership of the American Indian Movement Grand Governing Council, the International Indian Treaty Council, the National Coalition on Racism in Sports and Media, and all of our other projects listed on our web site have accomplished; work that continues over a thirty-year period of time.
On the other hand, this group of detractors have done nothing for the Indian people, or for humankind in general. Everything they have done is self-serving to put money in their pockets, be it their revisionist writings, lectures, movies, etc., while they continue their campaign and attempts to divide and destroy the American Indian Movement.

There is so much more information that we can share with you that is in this report. Everything that is represented in this Press Statement and following report entitled, The United States Governments War Against the American Indian Movement are factual based in part on our careful review of the first of 17,722 pages of declassified documents from various U.S. government agencies under the Freedom of Information Act (FOI).
Additionally, it is based on a twenty-five year investigation by the Council on Security & Intelligence, and the conspirators and collaborators own words, writings, representations, and as important, their actions. (See Council on Security and Intelligence, the United States Government War Against the American Indian Movement) <>, the role of the White House and Secret Service, Senate Judiciary Committee, Justice Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), other U.S. military and intelligence agencies.
Finally, as you review the total report, we trust that you will come to the same conclusions that we have.

Historians have their hands full as it is, without Disney Studios pushing itself in on the debate. Just how old was Pocahontas when she threw herself over John Smith's broad European masculine frame to prevent her own father from killing him? Was her name even Pocahontas? Whose idea was it to marry her off to John Rolfe?
These questions, which used to be the exclusive purview of historians, have now apparently been settled once and for all by Walt Disney - the corporation, not the person - as we shall soon all come to recognize, because little children will be reciting the new facts to us grumpy old-timers. Pocahontas was a young adult when the similarly young John Smith came along and the two of them did mushy stuff. Her dark skin next to his pale flesh (as in flesh-colored) tells us something is different about this animated romance.
However, we gimlet-eyed adults know that not too many years ago, it would have been unheard of to have a white skin and a dark skin in close proximity on the screen or in book illustrations.
And when real live actors played dark-skinned women in films, we knew they were really white-skinned actors in heavy makeup. How titillating it was to later see these Euro-babes replaced by actors France
Nuyen or Nancy Kwan playing actual dark-skinned people. We were so accustomed to Hedv Lamarr in dark drag or Katharine Hepburn - for Pete's sake - playing a Chinese woman.
Dorothy Lamour played a Tahitian, and Debra Paget played some kind of Hawaiian princess. Seemingly endless pale-skins have played Indian princesses. Their blue eyes peering through dark Max Factor layers of brown sludge.
Who can forget Jimmy Stewart as the stalwart American trying to make peace with the Indians in the film "Broken Arrow." His foil, Jeff Chandler, played the Chiricahua Apache leader Cochise, although the actor wore a pronounced Hebrew-American visage. Of course Cochise's nitwit daughter died in Jimmy Stewart's arms before they could consummate their biracial love affair. That's the way it used to do be done in the movies - the white guy loses the dark- babe before anything can get going, thus sparing moviegoers any outrage.
But now as we soon shall see, little girls everywhere English is spoken will be enchanted by animated lies as Pocahontas, that Frankensteinesque Disney creation. glides into their imaginations. She represents, as the animator Glen Keane describes, the face structure of a Mongolian, with the added convex facial curves of an African, the body of a Caucasian, and the slanted eyes of an Asian. Keane says Pocahontas is an 'ethnic blend.' (So it really isn't an Indian babe making it with a white guy after all? Whew! What a relief)
Still, must we watch as another nitwit daughter of a famous Indian leader throws away her position and her father's honor for the sake of an old turkey from England? The colonists couldn't have been fibbing about that part, could they?"
There may be hope. Perhaps Disney's third horrible anti-cultural, sexist animation could be a charm. First "Aladdin," then "The Lion King,' now 'Pocahontas." Imagine a scene like the one in the movies with the fools who dared to betray the temple gods, and tons of gold coins fill the Disney studios, killing everyone who had anything to do with this picture. The ghosts of Walt and Mickey appear in silhouette, saying, "That's what you get for being greedy little slugs!" Too remote a possibility you say? You're probably right.
Disney will make megamillions. Kids everywhere will teach their parents history, and we tired adults will learn to shrug this away too. Less forgiving, I suspect, will be many Indians when they hear how proud Russell Means of his role (a paying job) and how he thinks this animation is the greatest thing since fried bread.
The Indian Democrat turned Republican, U.S. Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell of Colorado, is said to be hosting a gala party and showing of the film to benefit little children with fetal alcohol syndrome.
Those with long memories will recall Means hopping on the nearest stage (proscenium, that is) to shout his disdain for Squanto and Tonto and all the tame Indians he referred to as "apples." He would go on for hours about "hang-around-the-fort Indians" and "BIA Indians," and he was known to bellow in the middle of the night that "today is a good day to die."
Perhaps we misunderstood. Perhaps he meant dye his hair, or something like that.
Means reserved special venom for those he called "Uncle Tomahawks." Those were the men who worked for government, industry or academia. He once told students at the University of California, Davis, that going to school was a waste of time and no true Indian would do it. Remembering guilt-free hours idled away listening to Means rant there are probably several hundred Indian people who now think they might have wasted their time.
What, though, could be more disconcerting than Means himself, contemplating in his private moments, how or why he sold his voice to a lie as he played an Indian who gave his own daughter to the whites.
Perhaps Means has turned into the biggest Red Delicious of them all, something of which the arch-conservative Walt Disney would greatly appro

The Means-LaMere Proposal

Two American Indian activists are planning to hit Whiteclay liquor sellers in a sensitive spot - their wallets. Russell Means and Frank LaMere propose to open an Indian-run beer store, funneling profits into alcohol treatment on the nearby Pine Ridge reservation.

Whiteclay, Neb., is a village of few people but four liquor stores that sell 4 million cans of beer a year, most of it to residents of the South Dakota reservation. The Pine Ridge reservation is dry; no alcoholic beverages are sold there. But alcoholism is a severe problem for the people of the Oglala branch of the Lakota nation, also known as the Sioux. Leaders of the tribe only point out the obvious when they say that easy access to beer at nearby Whiteclay is a serious temptation for alcohol abusers on the reservation.

Few good alternatives are evident. Pleas by the Indians to shut down the beer trade have been met with the response that the Whiteclay liquor stores operate legally. The tribe says Whiteclay is on reservation land, but progress toward making that claim a reality has been slow.

Now, however, LaMere and Means have cut through the rhetoric to the heart of the matter. If you can't beat'em....

But join 'em with a difference. LaMere and Means proposed that a nonprofit corporation be set up to hold a liquor license for an Indian-run beer outlet. Profits would go toward building a treatment center and anti-alcohol and drug programs on the reservation.

The liquor dealers of Whiteclay don't seem to think much of the idea. (Or the competition.) One suggested that the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission might not want to add yet another liquor outlet to the town that has been criticized for selling so much beer to reservation residents.

But the store proposed by Means and LaMere wouldn't be just another liquor store. It would be a means to an end, a way of helping save reservation residents from the evils of alcoholism.

Another Whiteclay entrepreneur suggested that the store would simply be used as a profet-making enterprise for its Indian owners. That is a mean-spirited accusation, but one that could be countered by careful construction of the nonprofit organization that would run the store.

It is a sad thing to contemplate Indians selling liquor to other Indians, given past and current problems. But there are few good alternatives. At one time, some Pine Ridge leaders thought about ending the reservation's dry status and using on-the-reservation profits to fight alcohol abuse. LaMere and Means would seek the same goal while keeping the facility off the reservation proper. That fact adds to its appeal.
