In case anyone is just thinking of them as silly or misguided, here's their version of the ATF raid, which they claim was "war crimes" and "part of genocide." They certainly make it harder for people to take TRUE cases of genocide seriously. And like many frauds, they are in turn being preyed upon by other frauds. You reap what you sow.http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?noframes;read=6679

US GOVERNMENT RENEWS 394 YEARS OF WAR AGAINST A TRIBE OF POCAHONTAS DESCENDANTS IN MISSOURI
"WE'RE THE GUN POLICE, AND WE ARE TAKIN' YOUR GUNS" said agent Brian Hoffman of the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) Division of the US Dept. of the Treasury , at 2:15 PM Wednesday, January 24; to Darrell Williams (more on that incident later in the release), a member of the Amonsoquath Tribe of Cherokee. Williams, a veteran of 10 years service in the US Army, now 100% disabled, had been visiting the tribal property overnight, and was there when the ATF came to illegally confiscate the firearms, and ammunition of the Chief's wife and son, and used "residency and occupancy records" mentioned in the warrant as an excuse to seize the deed to not only his own 35 acre property, but
to the adjoining 35 acres owned by the Amonsoquath Tribe of Cherokee, Inc., a State of Missouri non profit corporation. Chief Martin Gilmore
Wilson, Jr., known in the Native American Indian world as U-ku Yo-nah A-yee AKA "Chief Walking Bear." Chief Martin "Walking Bear" Wilson is the cousin of Chief "Oliver Red" Cloud Wilson of the Lakota Traditional Oyate.
What the US Government committed during the raid and the subsequent search are indeed hate crimes in that there was a total desecration of
American Indian Religious Articles. This activity is a violation of the American Indian religious Freedom Act, and can only be described as a "Hate Crime." If the articles were of Christian content they would not have been desecrated. There were no weapons in the medicine bundle nor in the pipe or feathers. Chief Walking Bear is a member and minister of a Native American Church, and is a "Pipe Carrier," which is a holy man of our Tribe.
Legality of the raid is arguable because the federal government of the United States of America does not have jurisdiction over Martin Gilmore Wilson, and only presumes such. Chief Walking Bear is NOT a citizen of the United States, as an unresolved state of war exists between the US Government and the Sovereign Amonsoquath Tribe of Cherokee. The 1924 Indian Citizenship Act does not cover Indians with whom the US is still at war with, or with which an unresolved state of war existing. Because of their non-citizen status, Walking Bear, his brother Red Horse, and their Mother Shining Bear spent most of WW2 interned in a prisoner of War camp near Springfield, Missouri while their father, a descendant of the famed Dakota Chief Red Cloud, was forced to fight his way across Europe.
