Ancient Maya Holy Time
And the Evolution of Creation Map
A Universal Invisible Force
Since the first moments of creation, magnetism has been a force in our universe so fundamental and so powerful, that nothing would exist without it. In the beginning lodestone was discovered in the Greek province of Magnesia, hence the name magnet. Humans first discovered magnetism as a rock with a mind of its own, an effect without a cause. The effects of magnetism help shape the world, as we know it. Mother Earth herself has a magnetic soul and is also a perfect magnet on a planetary scale.
Magnetism is a basic Natural Force of the Universe.Magnetism can appear to be magical if you choose not to understand it. Magnetism’s healing properties have been understood and practiced since Atlantis’s time. These healing properties have been recorded in ancient Egyptian, Greek, Chinese and other writings. Research for space exploration has produced important information on the human response to magnetic fields and pulsing magnetic frequencies. NASA discovered that pulsing magnetic field generators installed in manned spacecraft were essential in maintaining normal health and bone density in astronauts. They found that specific magnetic fields and frequencies produced certain biological responses. The earth’s natural pulsing frequency of 7.96 Hz. (cycles per second) reduces stress and encourages relaxation and sleep.
The most important single function of magnetism is that it transports energy throughout the universe. We wouldn’t have light or feel the heat from the sun if we didn’t have electromagnetic waves to transmit them. The earth’s magnetic field that surrounds us acts as a barrier to protect us from cosmic radiation from the sun, however, the earth’s magnetic field dives into the earth at the north and south poles. When cosmic radiation collides with our atmosphere at these points it turns into plasma, which in turn creates the mystical Aurora Lights.Read More>>>
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR...
Manataka receives dozens of letters each week. Space does not allow us to publish all letters but we make a concerted effort to print letters that are representative of a majority. Let us know if there is a topic you feel needs to be addressed.
Readers wonder why corruption thrives here on the Indian reservation...
This is Alfred Bone Shirt in South Dakota.
The picture is Paula Moccasin and her daughter the mother and sister of Jeremy White Lance who was shot at and beat by the newly hired Chief of Police's brother Steve Her Many Horses, Word out is that Grace threatened her police not to talk about the attempted murder/beating to anyone. There has been other beatings and rapes etc, by officers and the common phrase is that they are under" Internal Investigation, a common catch phrase, which is roughly translated into, business as usual. The officer involved will be out on patrol soon.
The Tribal chairman has attempted to hush up the Tribal council and the Police commission. basically taking the commission's authority away for complaints and avenues for Indian people to deal with Human and civil rights violations. Grace is friends with a officer named Fred Bennett who works on one of the Indian reservations, he has a brother who is now a FBI agent who travels with a another brown skinned man or maybe a Indian, which is designed to better serve and fit in with the Indians.
Many people here on the
Rosebud know how political Grace is and the way this particular
beating has been swept under the rug, what started out with Steve
her Many Horses daughter taking off from school with her boy friend,
turned into a abduction charges against Jeremy and his cousin Justin
Black Moon and her( Stefanie Her Many Horses boy friend- Jarred
White lance age approximately 18) Steve is the chairman of the Todd
County School board who took the law into his own hands and shot at
and severely beat Jeremy White Lance, brother to his
Tribal charges were
dismissed against the young men after they were able to get a public
defender after 13 days of being in jail, one young man had to serve
out a previous jail sentence so he is completing a 17 day sentence
with school release.
Rodney Bordeaux along with
the Bureau of Indian Affairs superintendent Cleve Her Many Horses
modified the job so Grace H.M.H. could be put on the clock before
her back ground check was complete, One council man has wrote a
letter calling for the removal of the BIA Supt. and deputy
At least five of
the highest ranking tribal officers as well as one FBI agent was
stated to have been on scene that day, One officer Charles Ginsback
stated to the family members and tribal council in a informal
meeting on April 9, 2010 that he was going to arrest Steve her Many
Horses and even gave Grace a heads up that he was going to arrest
her brother, but because they are suppose to have some rarely used
policy about some one with medical conditions can't be arrested and
jailed, Officer Ginsback didn't lodge Steve H.M.H, One of the
parents of Justin Black Moon then asked him (Ginsbach) why did you
arrest her son who had to practically be carried to a police car
after the doctors seen him at
Steve H.M.H has not been charged
Even though the family has spoke with Tribal Police and submitted charges. As of this day Steve has only been suspended from his tribal job for 15 days with pay. We have pictures of Jeremy's broken and wired jaw. plus all the doctors statements. We continue to see this as a travesty of Justice here on a Indian reservation in South Dakota.
Not only is this being covered up the media in South Dakota is turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to something so horrific, This has further damaged the confidence Indian people feel with the disparity of justice in South Dakota, We know that South Dakota is called the Mississippi of the North with South Dakota constantly being in denial of its Racism.
In the recent past, one comment which reached our ears from a western South Dakota newspaper conference where" Wild Bill Janklow" was a key note speaker, a newspaper man said that the major problems affecting the good white people in western South Dakota was Indians and cattle.
On April 22,2010 Many Tribal members stopped by with words of encouragement and drove by with a honk and a thumbs up sign to us who were out in front of the Rosebud Tribal building, There has been issues of malfeasance and corruption coming to a boil with Rodney Bordeaux administration.
Grace Her Many Horses is being looked at as using her friends and her other brother Cleve's fellow BIA connections and FBI connections to hinder and divert charges against her brother, but also using her position to over kill the issue with the young men and her nieces boy friend. On the Rosebud Indian reservation, a police officer can't be trusted.
Please remember that Cleve
Her Many Horses is the Rosebud Agency Bureau of Indian Affairs
Superintendent and a Brother to Grace and
The Todd County School Board either is ignoring this issue or won't deal with it, Steve is the Board chairman of TCHS. We have been receiving words from various families on the Rosebud Indian reservation of improprieties on Steve one of which where he owed around $ 2000.00 back rent to a Elderly Lakota Lady who sadly passed away before she could collect her rent money, we understand that he would cuss her out and intimidate her when she was able to make contact with him.
When we try to get the issue in some of the local Indian papers, we run into the similar obstacles, some of the reporters or staff are related to the tribal officials, or into drugs themselves, Other reporters take our documents and information on the story and sit on it. and worse is the actual yellow journalism on some of our issues. This same administration have been buying the services of a local medicine man to cast spells and voodoo type curses on their opposition. And you the readers wonder why corruption thrives here on the Indian reservation, No light is being let in or shined down upon it, and corruption thrives in the darkness and within the curtain of silence here.
We are tired of it, enough is enough, You don't take the law into your own hands, regardless who you are related to, We hold dear to our prayers and hope that there may be a good cop out there some where, who is not afraid of the tribal government.

Prophecies About Rare Animals
Prophecies of many cultures counsel people to watch for the
birth of rare animals. White animals and other animals of
rare coloring are now being born around the world. A white
skunk born here, a red cow birthed there, and the sacred
white buffalo, at least one of which has been born every
year since 1994, have all been in the news recently.
Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Keeper of the Sacred Pipe of the White Buffalo Calf Woman urges all nations, all faiths, to share one prayer, on the 21st of June, the Summer Solstice. It is a day he has set aside as World Peace Day. Listen to Chief Arvol Looking Horse’s prayer on this free live webcast, on the 21st of June, at www.allonenow.org. 7:00 PM EST - During the Full Moon Rise. ~Awi Anida Waya, Manataka Correspondent
To the Original Peoples of the Fourth World and all International Press Services
high noon today US Army helicopters of the US Seventh
Cavalry air division attempted to land their Blackhawk
aircraft upon Lakota Sacred Burial grounds in South Dakota.
The presence of military aircraft from this unit... See More
is a sad and insulting reminder of the slaughter of more
than 300 American Aboriginals on December 29,1890 when
soldiers of the US 7th Cavalry gunned down more than 300
Aboriginal Minneconjou Lakota refugee children, women,
infants and the elderly at what is now called Wounded Knee
in South Dakota Indian Country. The military then left the
bodies of their victims to decay unburied in the driving
This domestic military action is a deliberate insult and an obvious message of ongoing colonialism, state-sponsored racism and apathetic Indigenous genocide to all Indigenous peoples across the Fourth World; to the whole of the Lakota/Dakota Nation; and to the Indigenous residents of Pine Ridge and Wounded Knee. The symbolism of dispatching the Seventh Cavalry to Wounded Knee in an attempt to land weapons of mass destruction on Aboriginal sacred ground tells us how little this government, and this particular administration, respects the people of Indian Country and our significant historical perspective as survivors of the racist Euro-settler xenophobic purges waged against the Indian in the Americas.
Michele Obama is the Queen Mother
I just read this article
aloud to Emily, because she didn't believe me when I
told her that Michele Obama is a pampered woman who
can no longer relate to working mothers struggling
in America. Nor is Mrs. Obama like most working
mothers I know who live paycheck to paycheck to feed
their families and pay bills. Yes, I do feel it's
important to know these things. If you have a large
staff doing everything for you, that's being
silver-spoon-fed - it is disrespectful to those who
are struggling now.
I pointed out the blurb at the bottom about the Canadian Free Press and the highest salary, and the lowest salary, along with the sum total of the salaries, in comparison to the amount of money we (Emily's parents) earn. We don't have a staff of anyone doing our work for us. I don't know anyone who does. Hair and makeup stylist? Scheduling? Correspondence? Designer clothes? How about wash and wear, dial a phone, write a letter, buy a calendar, use Avon?
As a lower-middle class mother, this article sickens me. I don't begrudge those who are well-off, but her comment is kind of a slap in the face - I guess I should be happy that she employs so many people to attend to her every need in a time of high unemployment. At least they are employed .... until Obama gets voted out, that is (I think that is coming - populist anger is growing by the day). It's like Buckingham Palace, only here in America - Mrs. Obama is the Queen Mother.
What a wake-up call. I once liked this administration and thought it might bring hope and change. I am disgusted. I wonder if I could lose my job for writing this letter? ~ Kim Summer Moon Wilson, Philadelphia
Once upon a time, the white people from Europe sailed to the shores of America with the stated purpose of practicing freedom of their several different interpretations of the Christian religion. They proceeded to take the Native Americans’ land by force, much as the Israelites in their biblical journey from Egypt took land from all that stood in their way. The white Europeans then bought and sold imported African natives to work the fields as slaves as they built churches and spread their varied versions of their religion across the land.
Today the European conquerors are in search of a quantifier over the question of legal and illegal immigration. Should everyone without papers be exported? If so, who will work the fields and bring in the harvest? Surely, such work is beneath the whites, and blacks have long ago been freed. Why not go back to the beginning and start all over as some in Congress proposed with health care?
I suggest that the president appoint and Congress confirm a commission on immigration composed of one member from each Native American tribe still in existence today and let them write the laws that control immigration. ~Phil Lowe, Knoxville
Counting Coup - Lakota Citizens

http://manataka.org/page2180.html Counting Coup - Lakota Citizens Stop US Helicopters from Landing at Wounded Knee
This is unreal and disgusting .... stuff I didn't think was possible to happen (like, how would this even occur to the U.S. military to be so stupid and arrogant?).
'Avatar' is a powerful movie, but I *wanted* to think that the military force in it was 'overdone' .... after reading this - not anymore. (Thinking about it - thinking about Vietnam and other wars ..... maybe not.)
Exposed to Military Toxic Chemicals
I was exposed to AO and other "toxic' chemicals while stationed at Ft. McClellan, Al( 1971-1974). My husband , Mike, was exposed at Camp Lejeune, NC ( chemicals in drinking water). We ( all veterans) were not notified of the dangers to us and or our families . As you know my daughter, Mary Ellen was born with spina bifida(March 1974).
The VA has denied my claims for health
problems related to chemical exposure while active duty at Ft.
McClellan, Al. The VA denied the claim for Mary Ellen and mine , " the
veteran did not serve in Vietnam". So I got mad and sent the following
message to the President, his enviromental advisors, and Senator Patty
Murray ( Dem. Wa.). My message, "Urgent, I was exposed to AO and other
toxic chemical while active duty at Ft. McClellan, Al. . We were not
notified of the dangers to ourselves or our families. The VA denied my
claims because I did not step foot in Vietnam. A veteran, Irish,
notified me and other veterans of Ft. McClellan, Al. before she died May
We need help
now , No more studies!! The US government destroyed Mother Earth!!"
Please help me spread this message and request action from the
government! I realize this is a historical movement. One small rock
thrown in water makes many ripples and grows outward. ~Sally (

that's the right way to put it, I very much

Sparkling Blue Star Man
I am writing you to thank you for your site and your teachings. Recently I had an experience for the first time I could see through my minds eye a big blue star. That night I had a dream of feasting with a bear , on the ground was tobacco where the blood dripped from our mouths. I was shown around the forest and we spent time scaring animals then it was getting hot and the planet started to glow , with rivers of molten metal then the bear said it was time for him to go to sleep and for me to wake up for it was the day I was to ask for my second name he told me what it was but not in English. For that I would have to pass tobacco at the lodge. When I awoke I looked at your sight and there was the blue star that I had seen and the teachings fit into my dreams that I had before I saw your sight . My name that I was given was the same name that the bear told me and in English it translates to Sparkling Blue Star Man . I have only been going to sweats and pipe ceremonies for 2 years but I don’t know how I ever survived without them. For the first time in my life I am learning to be happy and grateful for the creators blessings. I will say prayers for you and all your relations the next time I am in the lodge. And humbly ask you to do the same for me., Keep up the good work . I wish you good health, hope and happiness. ~Jeff Rankin
The Declaration Of Energy independence
We will keep this short and simple: Indian reservations, many indigenous peoples, and all peoples around the globe can greatly benefit from the introduction, production, and mass distribution of free energy technology. This improvement can be experienced immediately as soon as you build your first zero point energy magnetic generator. You will never have to pay another power bill again. The introduction of compressed air engines powered by zero point energy generators will mean you never have to buy gasoline again, because all Native: cars, truck, planes, farm and factory equipment and engines can run on compressed air.
Do you all think it would be the responsible thing to do? If you break away from a corporation run system that is destroying land, people, and environment you can help lead by example, and help preserve your heritage, and protect and clean up Our Great Mother Earth. The only way to provide Native American human rights to all of your peoples and other peoples is to have an endless, free, and safe source of electricity. This safe and free source is called zero point energy, help free yourselves and the rest of the suffering peoples around the globe from the industrial shackles of the industrial slave-master. The evil corporations such as big: coal, oil, nuclear, and electricity have done everything to harm us and the earth by blowing up mountains to get coal for electricity, and burning fossil fuels that poison all peoples, and the whole environment, also nuclear energy has destroyed millions of peoples health and lives.
Going to courts and governments who are greatly funded and therefore "somewhat" under the influence of industrial corporations won't really solve this industrial nightmare at its source. In-order to shut down these evil industrial corporate operations peoples, individuals, groups, organizations, tribal elders, etc. should ban together and supply all the reservations and peoples with a cheap to no cost: (individual access) to free energy zero point technology. When people are being exploited and overcharged daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly fees for access to clean water, food, land, shelter, "rent", this puts tremendous strain on the people. If you will only provide a fair and generous alternative for those being exploited, and damaged by industrial corporations then you can surely break the cycle of misuse and abuse of outdated and dangerous industrial technology. ~Avatar Bender
WHY THE 2010 CENSUS IS IMPORTANT TO ALL AMERICAN INDIANS
Should I Identify as Native American in the 2010 Census?
It is absolutely critical that all “non-enrolled” Native Americans, and those people that can prove lineal descent from a Native American ancestor, self-identify as “Native American in Combination with One or More Races” when completing their 2010 Census questionnaires! Get the message out – pass this along to your family members and other Indian friends.
Results of the 2000 Census
For the first time ever, the 2000 Census measured “Native Americans in Combination with One or More Races,” That number totaled 4,119,301. The number of Americans that reported themselves “Native Alone” was 2,475,956 (these are considered predominantly enrolled members of a federally recognized tribe. The difference between these two numbers equals 1,643,345. This is significant because this 1,643,345 represents the number of persons that self-identified as “mixed-blood”
It must be pointed out that the 2000 Census was “flawed” - in that it did not provide a method to distinguish what percentage of the 1,643,345 were enrolled members of a federally recognized Indian tribe that chose to identify using this category only. However, it is generally accepted that the vast majority of these (perhaps exceeding 90%) are “non-enrolled” members of a federally recognized Indian tribe. Read More >>>
and His Grandchildren
by Robert Francis © January 2010
There was an old man who had seven grandchildren. The grandfather loved each grandchild with all his heart, nurturing and teaching each according to their various and diverse bents and abilities.
One grandchild was taught how to care for trees – every kind of nut tree and fruit tree, as well as trees used for wood or that simply make the earth more beautiful.
Another grandchild was taught how to care for and gather herbs and plants from the forests and prairies for use as food and medicine.
Another grandchild was taught how to raise all sorts of garden and field crops.
Another grandchild was taught how to hunt large animals for meat and hides.
Another grandchild was taught how to trap small animals and birds for meat, fur and feathers.
Another grandchild was taught how to fish.
Another grandchild was taught how to care for domesticated animals.
While each grandchild was taught differently from the others, each was taught to live in close relationship with all of creation. Each grandchild made mistakes, yet the grandfather was very kind and very patient. He never raised a hand in anger to any of his grandchildren. The grandfather taught his grandchildren what they needed to know, but he was careful not to tell them everything.
The grandfather expected his grandchildren to learn from observation and to think for themselves. Likewise, the grandfather did not succumb to the temptation to do everything for his grandchildren. He did not automatically fulfill all their requests, for he wanted them to learn responsibility. The grandfather wanted his grandchildren to learn to help themselves and each other. The grandfather was also careful not to intervene or take sides in the squabbles his grandchildren had with one another, for he wanted them to learn how to work through relational issues on their own. As the grandchildren continued to learn, again, they all made mistakes, but the grandfather was very kind and very patient. He loved each grandchild with all his heart.
Most of the grandchildren were content to listen and remember what the grandfather told them, but one of the three younger grandchildren busied himself writing down all the grandfather’s instructions to him, to the best of his recollection and understanding, until he had written a large book. This book he carried to his fellow grandchildren.
“My grandfather has entrusted all his wisdom to me. The grandfather’s wisdom is written in this book,” he said. “You must all accept this book as the grandfather’s word.”
Another of the younger grandchildren said, “I believe you; I accept this book as the grandfather’s word.”
of the younger grandchildren said, “I neither believe you nor accept your
book,” but after receiving a sound thrashing, this grandchild changed his
tone. “Since you have beaten me up,” he said, “I see that you are superior
to me. It follows that your book must also be superior to anything I may
have learned previously. Now, I too will accept this book as the
After this, the three younger grandchildren went out to worry and bully the four older grandchildren to accept the book. Even after much fighting, two of the older grandchildren still said they would by no means accept the book. “The grandfather has taught us what we need to know,” they maintained. “Furthermore, your superior attitude and disrespectful ways show us that you have no wisdom worthy of our notice.”
However, the other two older grandchildren agreed to read the book. “We will carefully consider everything written there,” they said. “Surely the grandfather has taught all his grandchildren. Some of his wisdom may well be contained in your book.” But these two went on to say, “You should also listen to us, for we also have been instructed by the grandfather.”
One of the three younger grandchildren said, “I will listen to what you have to say.”
The other two said, “We will not listen. All the grandfather’s wisdom is written in this book. We have the book, and you have nothing of value for us.” These two went off and soon began arguing and fighting between themselves about what was written in the book.
In all of this, the grandfather remained very kind and very patient toward all his grandchildren, for he loved each grandchild with all his heart.

I AM BACK
Perhaps, dear readers, you have decided I was on vacation or pursuing an academic search for more material to write about. Oh, how I wish that had been true. Instead I was being held hostage at home with the largest “Honey Do” list of my life. It began pretty simple, and then just grew and grew and grew.
It is my hope that as I share my surprise journey, you will recognize a similar experience in your own life. Over a year ago, my lovely mate pointed out to me that our lodge (house) was in serious need of major repairs. She also pointed out that I could do all of the repairs, and our only cost would be for materials. Does this sound familiar to you men? Although I knew some of the repairs would need to be done by much younger workers, I agreed to her plan. That was my first mistake.
My search for a reputable contractor to do the few things I was not comfortable doing because of my strength and age led me to a man who was agreeable to helping me out with major things, like the new roof. Everything looked good. Then the work began, and I’m sure you can guess what we set in motion for the past year. We have dealt with delays caused by jobs before ours getting stalled, repairs we had not planned for, changes in HUD rules and money flow, not to mention making sure the work was done properly and finding someone to finish when a worker just walked off the job one day.Read More >>>
The Manataka American Indian Council supports:
"The Natural Law is the final and absolute authority governing E Te No Ha, the earth we call our Mother." --Traditional Circle of Elders
There is no power greater than the Natural Laws. These powers were set up by the Great Spirit in such a way that the human being has no access to it, except by obeying. If we choose not to follow the Natural Laws, our live will be filled with confusion, tension, anxiety and stress. If we poison the Earth, we poison ourselves. If we poison the Water of the Earth, we poison ourselves. As we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves and our children, even the children unborn. May we think about this today and ask ourselves, "Are we holding and acting toward the Mother Earth in a good way?"
Great Spirit, teach me the Natural Laws that govern the Earth.

Van T. Barfoot “Medal Of Honor”
By Luke Easter
Injustice oh injust, a Medal of Honor recipient put to the test,
Over the flag of a country he served, giving his ultimate best,
Heading east from Carthage in Mississippi, State Route # 16,
After a few miles the sign, Edinburg, you’ll see what I mean.
This quiet unassuming fellow, a little history so you’ll know,
Just in front of his residence, he wanted to put up a flagpole,
Serving in World War II, Korea & a stint in South Viet Nam,
Received our nations, “Medal of Honor” from his Uncle Sam.
With, “Stars & Stripes” in his yard, neighbors had other plans,
Medal of Honor, served in 3 wars, big deal, who gives a damn?
These suburban folks in Virginia, they had rules of their own,
And would not leave this 90 year-old decorated veteran alone.
Animals in southern Iceland are at risk of fluoride poisoning if they inhale or ingest the ash from the recent volcanic eruption. Fluoride poisoning can lead to internal bleeding, long-term bone damage and tooth loss.
According to BBC News:
“The fluoride in the ash creates acid in the animals' stomachs, corroding the intestines and causing hemorrhages. It also binds with calcium in the bloodstream and after heavy exposure over a period of days makes bones frail, even causing teeth to crumble.”
Many may see this story and never connect the dots between the tragic poisoning of these animals due to a natural event, and the intentional poisoning of human beings through excessive fluoride exposure each and every day.
This story is another clue that just because something exists in nature doesn't necessarily mean it is good for you. And this is certainly true for the seriously misguided use of fluoride to prevent dental cavities.
The practice of adding fluoride to your tap water began in 1945. With more than 60 percent of U.S. water supplies currently fluoridated, chances are you’re one of the 170 million Americans who drink fluoride on a daily basis.
Most likely, your dentist – along with countless government and public health officials -- has praised and promoted the use of fluoride, both in toothpaste and drinking water, as one of your must-do regimens to promote strong and healthy teeth.
Unfortunately, they’ve all bought the public deception, and have unwittingly participated in and perpetuated perhaps one of the grandest public health frauds and toxic cover-ups in U.S. history.
Fluoride – A Historically Known Toxin
Prior to 1945 when communal water fluoridation took effect, fluoride was a known toxin.
For example, a 1936 issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association stated that fluoride at the 1 ppm (part per million) concentration is as toxic as arsenic and lead.
The Journal of the American Medical Association stated in their September 18, 1943 issue, that “fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons that change the permeability of the cell membrane by certain enzymes.” And, an editorial published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, October 1, 1944, stated, Read More >>>
