Fox: Sioux Indians, United Nations, Demanding Control of Mt. Rushmore
Fox News Channel (no link) | 5/7/12

Posted on 05/07/2012 11:01:47 AM PDT by pabianice

Per Fox...

United Nations "diplomats" have concluded a tour of the U.S., speaking to Indian tribes in six states. According to Fox, many of the tribes involved told the UN they need the UN's help in reclaiming "ancestral sacred land," included in which would be the Mt. Rushmore monument and surrounding national park. One is left to wonder just what changes to Mt. Rushmore would then be made. The Obama Administration was reportedly responsible for arranging the UN tour. Just in time for the 2012 elections.

Your $3B/year UN dues at work.

It could be a good thing to give Mount Rushmore back to the Sioux and have them remove all the faces.

I’d rather have them do that than for this administration to add Obama’s face with the four that are already there.

I’m wondering what happens when half a million bikers show up for Sturgis and are told they can’t come in.

I read somewhere that it’s not possible to add anybody else due the geology of the mountain.

They’re simply ‘out of room/out of rock’ and what’s already there is the end of it.

I believe it was Chief RED CLOUD who whipped the US army in several battles, yet later decided to sell the Black Hills even though other chiefs were against it.

The only land I know that all Indidans consider sacred is the pipestone quaries in which Catlinite is dug out for sacred pipes.

It is now a Monument but Indians are still allowed to gather the stone.

Ah, history, where is thy sting? First the Lakota didn’t reach the Black hills until around 1775. When they promptly drove the Kiowa, who were living there, out. The Apache had lived there, for a while, even earlier, and been driven out by somebody else.

The problem the Sioux [derived from the Objibway or Chippewa word for ‘snake’]had was they were an expanding military power [they drove the Crow off the Powder River Buffalo range in 1875 or 1876] who ran into a better one, us.And despite the Fetterman massacre, the Rosebud and the Little Big Horn, they lost. By Spring of 1877, they had all either come, or fled to Canada.

So the Lakota and the U.N can shove their peace pipe where the sun don’t shine. GARRY OWEN!

There are few animists and even fewer true animists in Mongolia. Most "animists" follow a syncretic form of Tengrism with animist elements.
While Tengriciclar do hold land and animal sacred, they will despoil the land. Temujin, the Chengis Khan, famously said "As Tengri alone rules the sky, so shall there be one ruler on earth below." Any and all acts to further this unification were not just acceptable, but sacred.

What does this have to do with the neolithic peoples of the Americas?

If there’s an extra dollar in it, they’d put Hitler up there with a corkscrew roller-coaster through his nostrils.

If you go to the nearby Crazy Horse monument, it is a much nicer experience.

Yuppers. I agree 1000%.

And do you know why it is a better experience in the opinion of thousands more??? Class?? Class? Anyone???

Yes class...

...IT IS A PRIVATELY FUNDED, CONTROLLED AND PRIVATELY RUN OPERATION!!! No government money taken or used to run it. NONE!!!

Who'd a' thunk it huh?

The Sioux only lived on the plains for about 70 years. They kicked out the Crows.

If the UN can give it back to them than it seems fair to assume that the UN will also be able to take it away from them again at a later date.

Out of curiosity, just how many “chiselers” would it take to sculpt a proper visage of Elizabeth Warren in stone? We can’t take anything for granite.
