Welcome & News / Ezra Miller
« Last post by Laurel on June 20, 2022, 10:15:39 am »
I don't even know what to say about this. Nobody seems to know where Miller and Iron Eyes are.

https://nypost.com/2022/06/11/family-claims-ezra-miller-controlling-daughter-in-cult-situation/

Sara Jumping Eagle grew up on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, one of the poorest counties in the US. She graduated from Stanford Medical School and returned to the reservation to help the Lakota people as a pediatrician and activist.

Now 50, Jumping Eagle never expected to wind up on a busy street in Santa Monica last month — in a physical brawl with “The Flash” star Ezra Miller, 29. But she believes that the troubled Hollywood superhero has brainwashed, assaulted and possibly drugged her 18-year-old daughter, Tokata Iron Eyes, after grooming the girl for years. Miller is now traveling with Tokata and several other young women in California, she told The Post. [...]

Jumping Eagle and her husband, attorney and Native American activist Chase Iron Eyes, 44, say Miller’s toxic behavior includes the appropriation of Native beliefs. She told The Post that Miller, the New Jersey-born child of a Manhattan publisher and his actress wife, even lectured them on what kind of Lakota medicine man her family should use.

“Like this guy knows s–t about what he’s talking about,” Jumping Eagle said. “Telling us what to do in our own culture?”

“#EzraMiller is [a] spiritual voyeur dabbling in various indigenous peoples’ spiritual beliefs, combining w voodoo; using these beliefs [in] Tokata Iron Eyes mind, luring more people in cult-like manner,” Jumping Eagle tweeted last week.


An order of protection has been issued against Miller in Massachusetts by the mother of a twelve-year-old nonbinary person:

On the evening of Feb. 2, the trio contend that Miller was present at the downstairs neighbor’s home in Greenfield, which is located about 40 miles from the actor’s ranch in Stamford, Vermont. That neighbor is in a band with Whitney Suters, a musician who is close friends with Miller.

Tensions began brewing when the mother says she mentioned doing some traveling recently with “her tribe” of people, leading Miller to snap at her and accuse her of cultural appropriation. Then, a conversation about board games allegedly went sideways when, after Miller claimed that the board game Parcheesi had Rastafarian roots, the visiting neighbor—who is half-Black—questioned Miller as to which sect of the Rastafari movement it originated from.

“At this point, Ezra explodes and started screaming directly into my face,” the visiting neighbor tells me. “They said, ‘You don’t even know what the fuck you’re talking about. What did you say to me? What did you just say to me?!’”

“I was very caught off-guard,” the visiting neighbor continues. “Then they opened up their jacket—they had this, like, big Sherpa jacket—and they opened up one side of their jacket, you could see a gun, and they said, ‘Talking like that could get you into a really serious situation.’”

Next, according to the visiting neighbor, the mother, and the child, Miller focused their attention on the then-11-year-old, saying, “I’ve talked extensively with your child, and they have a lot of power to them. At one point, you’re going to realize that you don’t have any control over them anymore. They’re an elevated being, and they would be lucky to have someone like me guide them.”

Frauds / Re: Carlos Castaneda
« Last post by Sparks on June 16, 2022, 11:34:35 pm »
There are a couple of other resources that the original poster might be interested in examining. The film Carlos Castaneda: Enigma of a Sorcerer features documentary style commentary from people who were allegedly close to Castaneda at the height of his career as a "spiritual teacher" (it also features an awful lot of horrible, CGI type movie effects that are hard on the eyes). The general consensus seems to be that he was a manipulative (yet somehow seductive) jerk, particularly where women were concerned. Also, a book by one of the women featured in this film, Sorcerer's Apprentice: My Life With Carlos Castaneda by Amy Wallace might be worth checking out.

I just read through this complete topic, since Castaneda, unfortunately, is still widely admired and quoted by neo-shamanists in Scandinavia at least. Since 1915, the film mentioned above has been available in full (1:21:50) on YouTube:

Watch the whole documentary before leaving comments.... Castaneda junkies please move right along......this is for people who respect the truth.

Was Carlos Castaneda -- the U.C.L.A. anthropologist whose 1968 book, ''The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge,'' became one of the founding texts of the New Age movement -- a great spiritual leader or a cynical con man?

Directed by Ralph Torjan, once a member of Castaneda's inner circle of students, this digital video documentary piles up plenty of evidence that Don Juan, the Yaqui shaman from Mexico who supposedly trained Castaneda in the ancient Indian ways of accessing alternative realties, was a complete invention on Castaneda's part.

Many of Don Juan's ''teachings,'' the film suggests, were drawn from previously published academic articles, and little in Castaneda's account of his fabled apprenticeship to the master checks out when compared to the available facts.

According to the official birth certificate recorded in the office of Vital Records in Cajamarca, Peru the world's most famous anthropologist and best-selling author, Carlos César Salvador Arana, was born on December 25, 1925. On that momentous day his parents were not married to each other. Because both his parents were single, the address for baby Carlos was that of his father, Cesar N. Arana. Their address was 15 Arequipa Street. César Arana was 32 years old. The mother, "Dona Susana Castañeda," was 24 years old.

Carlos César Salvador Arana (aka Carlos Castaneda) provided various and contradictory versions of his birth and childhood. Those differing versions may indicate he felt some shame at being characterized as a bastard (a stigmatized status in that time and place). I have concluded that the emphasis our author, Carlos Castaneda, placed on "erasing personal history" is partly a symptom of embarrassment associated with being called an illegitimate child. Concomitantly, to boost his self-esteem, he invented more inspiring circumstances and parents. Creating such alternatives to the reality he lived in Peru increased his pride and made him seem extraordinary to others.

Castaneda, who died in 1998, used the celebrity his best-selling book earned him to establish his own personality cult. He surrounded himself with servile followers and made a habit of seducing female recruits.

One of his former lovers bluntly characterizes the group around him as ''Carlos's private harem.''

But as painfully aware of Castaneda's shortcomings as he is, Mr. Torjan makes no secret of having been deeply affected by his time with him. He tries to reclaim what he can from his former guru, offering testimony from several ex-members of the Castaneda cult about the profound, positive effect Castaneda's teachings had on their lives.

Trying to recreate that experience, Mr. Torjan has framed his talking-head interviews against an annoyingly persistent psychedelic background, generated by the popular music visualization program G-Force.

At least one of the people having their say in this movie is on the NAFPS fraud list, i.e. Robert Moss.

As unfortunate as this man’s story reads, wishing he was other than what he was, he also indoctrinated others who were & are inspired to emulate him. This is one example, below, of how Paul Olivas’ ideology of assuming whatever identity made him feel more special, exotic, uncommon is being passed down from one generation to another.

In this video, starting around the 46 minute mark, you’ll hear one of Paul Olivas’ followers use his fake credentials to create her own fake credentials. The woman is now called Hua Anwa, formerly Rosa Jackson, from Central California.

To my mind, this is just a way of passing down an ideology of Doctrine of Discovery’s (aka finders’ keepers) attitudes towards justifying taking something as the ends justifying the means. This is one of the most insidious attitudes, especially when paired with big-hearted New Agers (of any era) who think they can manifest a better country and world through their often self-righteous ‘good’ intentions.

What is irritating, though, is that as much as the message is that literally anyone can pray and be like an Indian, or that anyone can reclaim their own inherent indigenous roots, these charismatic leaders also have to distinguish themselves as special and capable of guiding others to have what they admire in the leader. Meaning, the PR is that all people are equal, however the leader is more than you’ll ever be.

The classic con artist picks up on how we are conning ourselves and exploits that weakness. The relationship between the con artist and the victim is, in Paul Olivas’ case, relies upon a trait he either shared with or passed down to others: shame and a massive ego.

Welcome & News / Re: Standing Rock Banishes Lakota Language Consortium

NAFPS members have seen some of the "Lakota" Language Consortium people before, in this thread:
 http://www.newagefraud.org/smf/index.php?topic=1049 "If Only I Were an Indian".

The NBC article tells what happened with one of the pretendians from that documentary. He and another Euro went on to alter and try to own the Lakota language, and sell it back to the Lakota. They are also turning quite a profit privatizing and selling the language materials of not only the Lakota, but other communities as well.

Lakota elders helped a white man preserve their language. Then he tried to sell it back to them.

"Ullrich, who is now the head linguist at the Lakota Language Consortium...

"Ullrich grew up in the Czech Republic, and in the 1980s he joined a group of white hobbyists who appropriated Indigenous culture by dressing up as Native Americans, living in tipis and smoking peace pipes, which was captured in a 1995 documentary."

The video, linked in the above article, is also on vimeo, under the title, "Becoming a Native American in the Czech Republic": https://vimeo.com/24033319

The "Lakota" Language Consortium is a Euro owned and run group that has now been banished from multiple Native communities.

Brian Haley has published quite a few papers on other faux Chumash and faux Indians in general, all very good and very thorough. Many of them are at his ResearchGate site:
