LISA RENEE: “Saturn Blood Worship”

“It has been confirmed that Saturn is a headquarters used for Zodiac Mind Control and that this planet’s aura and Logos is the densest and most problematic in the entire Solar System. Saturn is an Orion Group and Satanic force outpost for many of the NAA activities to distort and pervert the lower dimensions and propagate the 4D astral delusions along with the 5D false ascension programs. Most of the False Ascended Masters using the 5D false ascension program through Orion Group are actually transmitted through Saturn.”

~Lisa Renee

 

The Zodiac as we have known it will be altered due to these magnetic changes, and the astrology influence or mental imprints will change, alter or amplify, depending on the level of awareness and interaction with those cosmic and magnetic influences. This means that our magnetic imprint received from the zodiacal constellation alignments at birth will cease to have the same influence upon our body, our personality, our mind and will impact many other factors. Conversely those whom are under the severe mind controlled influence of the zodiac archetypes used by the NAA machinery may accelerate those influences into distorted behaviors.

It has been confirmed that Saturn is a headquarters used for Zodiac Mind Control and that this planet’s aura and Logos is the densest and most problematic in the entire Solar System. Saturn is an Orion Group and Satanic force outpost for many of the NAA activities to distort and pervert the lower dimensions and propagate the 4D astral delusions along with the 5D false ascension programs. Most of the False Ascended Masters using the 5D false ascension program through Orion Group are actually transmitted through Saturn. Additionally, it was confirmed all forms of blood cult worship were designed through Orion Groups by using Saturnian worship interchangeably for propagating Satanic Ritual Abuse SRA and Blood Sacrifice on earth. These distortions and their disadvantages remain heavily prevalent with those humans who may have heavy Saturn influences in their zodiacal birth chart. So for spiritual clearing purposes of curses, hexes, blood covenant or blood cult history, (see Black Magic) one may need to review Saturn influences for removal of Satanic types of bondage made in agreements to serve the Orion Group. [1]

Saturn Base Transmission to Moon

Additionally, it has been recently observed that the Solar System Stargate 7, located inside the planet Saturn was also transmitting artificial intelligence beams through the Moon that corrupted the ultra-violet wave spectrum in our planetary Magnetosphere. The impact of several technologies used from this Archon base, seem to have been recently neutralized in some of their effects. Like 7D reversal technologies that allowed for having operable Hibernation Zones, used in phantom areas as ambush pockets, to get into the earth field quickly though parallel doorways. The parallel doorways appear to lead directly into Lake Titicaca underground water base, which have been closed off and secured. Many underground bases scattered throughout the earth are in some kind of spiritual or material conflict for control and security.

Correction of this particular AI distortion appears to help people on the earth, to potentially align with higher frequencies and to have a better functioning Crown Chakra, or 7D energy center. The moon transmissions have been especially difficult on the human mental body and the ability to actually have a brain and nervous system that actually functions well. The anticipation is for an easier clearing out of Glandular System Implants, Pineal Cages and related Crucifixion Implants, that can be more easily dissolved from the lunar distortion impact as a result. For those on the ascension path, this will gradually lead to clearer thinking, higher functioning glands and the ability to build the Perceptual Bridge that accesses the functioning of the Higher Mind. [2]

Saturn’s Black Cube Matrix

Saturn is referred to as Black Star in ancient Judaic beliefs. A dead star would be denoting the Black Sun Agenda, the Black Star Abaddon the Destroyer which has its connection to the Black Cube Matrix in the core of the planet Saturn.

The Yahweh Matrix is system is connected into a Black Cube Matrix held through Saturn, that is siphoning life force from our Universal Time Matrix and routing it back into their black hole system. Saturn’s Black Cube holds a massive tank that acts as a harvesting station for blood sacrifice from human beings, in any way imaginable, whether through wars, rituals, crucifixion, martyrdom, suicide or menstrual. This makes it obvious why Saturn has been long associated with an assortment of blood worshipping cults. Saturn is also the Solar 7th Gate, so it’s been used to pump out reversal violet ray plasma light, and this is the distortion that generates reversal plasmas and reversal violet light on our planet. These reversal plasmas are designed to ignite and feed the Demon Seed that exists in the shadow selves or negative forms of the masses. Additionally, this alien construct was used to impale the Crucifixion Implants on the vertical axiatonal lines in the planetary body, which also devastated the vertical channel alignment of the Planetary Staff. [3]

Satanism

Satanism is based on the manipulation of energy and consciousness through Mind Control, deception and is many times ritual based SRA. These deeply sick rituals (such as Blood Sacrifice in war and killing) create an energy field, a Vibrational frequency, which connects the consciousness of the participants to the NAA group (i.e. reptilians) and other Consciousness energies in the lower fourth dimension. The Archons on the Saturn base transmit AI that contain Satanic belief systems to propagate these distortions on the earth. This dimensional field, also known as the lower astral to many people, which resonates to the frequency of low vibrational emotions like fear, guilt, shame, hatred and so on. When a SRA ritual focuses these emotions, as Satanism does, a powerful connection is made with the lower fourth dimension, the NAA, Fallen Angelics or reptilians. These are some of the ‘demons’ which these rituals have been designed to summon and feed since the NAA invasion occurred.

Book of Enoch

Enoch in his Gospel suggests that this Kingdom of Ruling Aryans, proud, arrogant and cruel were stockpiling weapons of immense sophistication and power for conflagration — the Satans forces — or Saturnians as referred to in the Ethiopic Book of Enoch were fomenting rebellion and conflagration. Amongst them, the subterranean necromancers who created abominable things led by the group of Fallen Angelics such as Azazael, Samael. (See Watchers). The War between the False Gods of Eden and the Powers lasted thirteen years it is said, and Greek myth shows Athene dragging off the shape changing giants. The Titans (i.e. Nephilim) were defeated finally when two great meteorites struck the Atlantean kingdom of Thule, reversing climate and ocean and the continental plates. That place now known as Scotland, the epicenter Scotlands western isles at Staffa – near to where the evil capital was said to be. The leader of the Satans was imprisoned underground, though the evil machinations of the dark Cabiri sorcerers that practiced later in Denmark and founded the very early practices of masonry with which Solomon and David would become familiar — may yet to this day plan their revenge on the offspring of that very first interracial marriage. (i.e. human hybrids) [4]

Reversal Father = Luciferian

The Reversal Father is the anti-life male collective consciousness of the Luciferians, whose accumulated collective consciousness is harvested by the NAA to gain energetic power from the earth grid and from humanity, by hijacking and raping the male and Father principle energies. The interdimensional alien Annunaki Gods, Enki, Enlil, Thoth, and Yahweh and Jehovah from Saturn, have primarily used the Reversal Father principle of Luciferianism to establish the world religions on the earth, using patriarchal domination rhetoric to serve the false light, and the Bi-Wave Consciousness, so they could gain full control over humans and exert themselves as the Gods.

LISA RENEE: “Great Pyramid”

“The Great Pyramid was a mystery school for the Blue Flame Melchizedek spiritual ascension program and to accelerate DNA assembly for portal passage through the Inner Earth portal that was under the Sphinx. Some factions of the Annunaki Melchizedeks became patriarchal and had disregarded the Law of One teachings. They became increasingly hostile when they were forbidden access into the ascension chambers and not allowed in the Great Pyramid. Thus, they organized a larger group resistance in Atlantis with the plan to explode the protective force field via setting off explosions in which to take control over the Giza Stargate, and to achieve their goal they enlisted the support of the sympathizers that were in the Galactic Federation as many were originally from the Annunaki lineages that felt they were being unjustly discriminated upon. As a result of the infiltration that occurred from Sirius A, the Jehovian Annunaki took control over the Galactic Federation and the Ashtar Command, joining the Luciferian Covenant and planning the final stages of the Atlantian Cataclysm with the purpose to eradicate the earth’s historical records and technological knowledge, sending the earth’s inhabitants back into the dark ages. The Galactic Federation works with the NAA groups towards world domination and are behind the mind control propaganda that the Annunaki are the Gods of the earth and this Solar System, promoting themselves as the divine angels returning to help humanity ascend, to seduce the earth population into subjugation to their New World Order enslavement agenda.

~Lisa Renee

 

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering present-day El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.

The ancient builder technology is evident in the construction of the original Great Pyramid during the Golden Age, pre-Atlantian Cataclysm, which was constructed as a harmonic resonance device to transmit a range of powerful frequencies and subtle energies throughout the Planetary Grid Network. The Great Pyramid was not designed to be a burial chamber.

Spiritual Ascension Chamber

Multiple millions of years ago, the Galactic Federation worked closely with the Sirian High Council to serve as a Guardian race that would help to support the seeding and evolution process of the planet earth in its lowest density, the first Harmonic Universe, also called the third dimensional timelines. The Great Pyramid of Giza was built as a harmonic resonator chamber within an interdimensional portal system in which visiting space craft could time travel and access the earth plane very quickly, especially if intervention was needed. During the cycle in which the Great Pyramid was built during pre-Atlantian times, the Galactic Federation was tasked to protect the Stargate portal and the ascension chamber within it and to intervene in case of an attack from hostile intruders such as the Annunaki resistance. The Great Pyramid was a mystery school for the Blue Flame Melchizedek spiritual ascension program and to accelerate DNA assembly for portal passage through the Inner Earth portal that was under the Sphinx. Some factions of the Annunaki Melchizedeks became patriarchal and had disregarded the Law of One teachings. They became increasingly hostile when they were forbidden access into the ascension chambers and not allowed in the Great Pyramid. Thus, they organized a larger group resistance in Atlantis with the plan to explode the protective force field via setting off explosions in which to take control over the Giza Stargate, and to achieve their goal they enlisted the support of the sympathizers that were in the Galactic Federation as many were originally from the Annunaki lineages that felt they were being unjustly discriminated upon. As a result of the infiltration that occurred from Sirius A, the Jehovian Annunaki took control over the Galactic Federation and the Ashtar Command, joining the Luciferian Covenant and planning the final stages of the Atlantian Cataclysm with the purpose to eradicate the earth’s historical records and technological knowledge, sending the earth’s inhabitants back into the dark ages.

The Galactic Federation works with the NAA groups towards world domination and are behind the mind control propaganda that the Annunaki are the Gods of the earth and this Solar System, promoting themselves as the divine angels returning to help humanity ascend, to seduce the earth population into subjugation to their New World Order enslavement agenda.

Geographical Center of Earth

Giza is the reference to the demographic area of Egypt that is the 4th dimensional planetary stargate and diamond heart complex or Solar Temple that was a primary target of total invasion by the NAA, before, during and after the Luciferian Rebellion, in order to gain full spectrum dominance over the Sol portal, and control access into Mars, install Checkerboard Mutation, as well as take position for total earth domination during the Ascension Cycle. This location is also the geographical center of the earth body.

Egyptian History Erased

Thus, true and accurate Egyptian history was replaced with the Black Sun agenda of inserting the Egyptian Pantheon of Gods, along with their Black Magic rituals, that were to be enforced by the installation of the Setian King lines, Hyksos and the Amun Snake Priesthood. These groups in the Middle East would eventually integrate into the Greek Mystery Schools and further evolve into the corrupted patriarchal lineages of the secret societies that formed as the Knights Templars and Freemasons, some using the image of Akhenaton as their Luciferian high priest for enacting the blueprint for the New World Order. This is an inside joke to the Galactic Federation, to defame his image and make a mockery of his life. Akhenaton was/is a Krystic being serving the Law of One and Reclamation of Christos Mission, attempting to negotiate with these rogue Annunaki groups to allow humanity to ascend in the 2012 window without interference. His negotiations to enter into a peace treaty failed, shortly after he was murdered a heretic king by a family member, and thus branded as a Luciferian high priest to the Illuminati hybrid lines.

LISA RENEE (Ascension Glossary): “Akhenaton”

“On 7/17/2006-7 Akenhaton came to visit me for awhile and talk about these things, helping me to remember our mission on earth. I have a direct relationship to AK from the Azurites formed by the RA Confederacy, the groups that orchestrated the Guardian Yeshua Christos mission, also known as the embodiment of Jeshua 12 on earth.”

~Lisa Renee

 

[Abbreviation – AK]  The Guardian previously known as Akhenaton while incarnated, is from the Aton group and is intimately involved with the reclamation of Christos mission, the Paliadorian Activations on the earth. His mission is designed to protect those who are from the ancient original Christos and Yeshua bloodlines, of which he was involved in bringing to the planet, while working with the Azurite teams over 2,000 years ago. He is the original family patriarch as it is his bloodline that propagates in the Krystic bloodlines still today, although much misinformation is still propagated about him to discredit his legacy.

Jesus Christ (aka J12) is a Sirian Blue Human from the future that came to change the 3rd dimensional timelines and bring the Essenes, Christos Templars and Law of One Ascension knowledge and its consciousness technology back to the planet earth. He is a direct descendant of Akhenaton’s genetics, as a result he is the father of all Christ lines on earth. This mission was in response to the DNA damage the planet and humanity had most recently suffered after the Luciferian Rebellion, and then the after the Sumerian-Egypt Invasion, which was the final destruction of the Mother’s Staff principle and Aqua Ray in the earth core.

His group mission under the direction of the High Lyran-Sirian council was to work with the future earth 5D Taran multi-dimensional Templar crew called the Azurites, originally organized by the RA Confederacy. The disbanded Azurite team is now hosted directly by the Holy Emerald Order. As a team they were working with repairing the planetary architecture, doing Soul Retrieval from the Lemurian Holocaust and Atlantian Cataclysm, preparing the Ley Lines, Planetary Grid Network and Planetary Gates to help align for the ending Ascension Cycle. The collaboration of Guardian teams continues in the next cycle of the Rise of the Paliadorians in order to fulfill the physicalization of the Covenant of Paliador through the reclamation of the Christos-Sophia and Amenti soul rescue mission.[1]

Akhenaton returned the ancient Essene knowledge of the All-One, or Law of One. The Sun was symbolic of being the source of everything, and the Solar body of Aten or Aton was considered to be the bringer of eternal life in order to achieve full consciousness enlightenment.

Egyptian Timelines

In the timelines of Egypt, as well as subsequent abuse of Alien Machinery technology to open portals in the 2D Underworld (which created time and space rips), manifested incredible damage to the planet, and her elemental and nature kingdoms. The damage made to the planetary field created multiple problems with human soul fragments, soul inversion, subconscious shadow personalities and NAA alien manipulation of these vulnerabilities.

One of these events was with 18th Dynastic timeline with Akhenaton, a Sirian Annunaki Templar Guardian, of which the erroneous use of opening portal systems for Ascension occurred while attempting to move out trapped souls from the Atlantian Cataclysm and Lemurian Holocaust periods. This ascension project ended in failure and destroyed his massive life’s work in attempting to recreate Krystic architecture and Law of One principles within Amarna, upon the earth. Upon opening rips in the 2D Underworld, which unleashed harmful forces into the higher frequency planes, it fragmented many souls who were sucked through its black hole. Shortly after this event, he retreated from his rule in pain, and was murdered a heretic King.

Some of us are here again, to complete this project in this 2012 time cycle and have been working to heal the schism this created with the 2D kingdom. The 2D dimensional field is where many animal and nature kingdoms exist as group consciousness, and were harmfully impacted by this quarantine, where they could not access links into other dimensional consciousness, and in effect, were trapped in that space. Because this quarantine is being sequentially lifted, many more of us are being contacted by species of the nature and animal kingdom. As this quarantine lifts we will begin to remember how to communicate with the intelligent beings of nature and give them their access back into the higher realms. All beings of the earth are of an intelligent group consciousness, and as we begin to take back our guardianship of the earth, this means we are the responsible stewards to cooperate in harmony with the natural kingdoms.[2]

Egyptian Timelines of 18th Dynasty

Due to the many, many adventures and relationships we have in this community and across the globe on the importance of Egyptian timelines and with specific reference to Akhenaton who I have spent time with discussing these matters, it feels we need a thread specific to 18th Dynasty and its various intersections. It is 100% clear to me that the Egyptian Black Magic was fortified by A. Crowley, through Thothian magic/alchemy and his work with Merlin archetype energy was foisted upon the Federal Reserve structures and what is still in place today as reversal mechanics around finance, money markets, currency, etc. The 7th ray distortion of Merlin “majic” was placed there to manipulate the financial markets to the benefit of the Nephilim and Controller bloodlines. Because of this entanglement of spiritual mission and purpose, when we draw from the past histories in Egypt we can see clearly we are doing the same work here in this Ascension timeline to repair issues that happened during that time, specific to 18th Dynasty, earlier in the Djoser age going back to the Atlantian Cataclysm. Many of us in ES may feel direct resonance and memory to these timelines as they relate to the current Atlantian Conspiracy. The 18th Dynasty is where many issues occurred that created problems in the planetary grid and crystalline fields which ultimately generated disconnection from certain portals we had open to communicate with the Krystic families. The explosions, distortions in the field destroyed and damaged many of the gates and portal systems on the planet. There are many patterns of “curses, hexes and spells” that come from the Egyptian timeline, many related to the current monetary system.

Personal Visitation with AK

On 7/17/2006-7 Akenhaton came to visit me for awhile and talk about these things, helping me to remember our mission on earth. I have a direct relationship to AK from the Azurites formed by the RA Confederacy, the groups that orchestrated the Guardian Yeshua Christos mission, also known as the embodiment of Jeshua 12 on earth. Over the years, some people have said they believe I am AK, and I am clearly not him. However, AK is my family and I have a similar piece in the service to the Reclamation of the Christos Mission mission and we have a deep bond of brotherhood with each other. He has helped and comforted me in the most difficult of times on the Ascension mission path. I have sourced some of the disdain and hatred projected towards me manipulated by the NAA’s victimizer targeting, this has come from the recognition of AK’s Krystic Guardian energy signature within me, as he did create some enemies while he was on earth. His enemies still work to annihilate his legacy, obliterate evidence of his presence and assassinate his character by defiling his image and by portraying him as an dark and evil being, which he certainly was not. I am here to help him and our Guardian Host teams that are connected to our Christ family to clean this mess up, going back to the original Covenant of Paliador. The Christos Mission is to help recover lost souls, repair transit gate technology gone awry, based upon the NAA invasion events that have occurred in this timeline and the final conflict that is occurring during the end of the Ascension Cycle. [3]

Vivisection in Egypt

Many of us have very unpleasant memories around the abuse and vivisection of the human brain for the Pineal Glands and hormonal secretion harvesting that occurred during the time of the Egyptian civilization. AK told me he was horrified that the Amun priests would lure serf peasants to give their children up (similar to the Islamic jihad suicide bombers) to be sacrificed and that the Draco priests would collect the Pineal Gland and try different ways to maximize hormonal and chemical secretions. Apparently, the more they terrorized a person, the more pumping of adrenal and pineal hormones, so they would scare the person or the child then open their brain up in order to collect the excretion. According to AK, nothing has changed much in this timeline, as the privileged priests would deceive poor people to believe what they were doing as child sacrifice was considered sacred to the Gods, and the sacrifice would elevate their child and clear their “karma” in the afterlife. This was one big point as to why AK was adamant to switch completely over to the sole worship of the Sun God Ra, and focus on monotheism as this form of religious worship required NO BLOOD SACRIFICES. He was attempting to end child Blood Sacrifice as that was the agenda of the Satanic based Draconian control that had a grip in the Amun priesthood. One can imagine how much the Egyptians hated him for removing their forms of worship towards idols and alien gods, and it was one of the reasons they branded him a heretic and a Psychopath. Pineal Gland activation that connects into the heart complex is getting initiated, which may bring up certain memories from the Egypt timeline during spiritual integration. If this is the case of these painful memories surfacing, hold the observer point, and be as peaceful as possible, do not get sucked into the emotional pain and trauma of these events unless its necessary for emotional processing and needed for completion of conflicts. In the Egyptian timelines, these distortions are linked to holographic inserts where Pineal Cages were placed around the pineal gland as a consciousness trap. Some of us may be dissolving these pineal cages or moving to another stage of clearing these from the lightbody, so for that reason, I place this information here for your consideration and awareness.[4]

RA Guardians

My exposure to the RA families was being taken through the 14th Gold Ray and 14 D portal sometime during 2005 and then again in 2007 with Akhenaton. I traveled there to the next Universe and we had a group gathering where communication was not verbal but in color wave and code transmission. As many of us can attest, this form of communication feels like getting imprinted with a massive amount of multidimensional language with an incredible amount of encoded geometric information in a few seconds, and it is impossible to express that linearly and in words to give a complete meaning. However, what was impressed upon me up there was that there is a problem with the RA soul extensions in this lower Universe. We are in a phantom section of the Universe, and that there are trapped levels of RA families that are entwined with the Seraphim and Gold Ray issues with the earth and other planets. Think of the infiltration problems with Golden Eagle Grid (GEG) in Iran-Iraq) The Seraphim branches have severe problems with Reptoid, Belial Programs, Melchizedek and other Avian hybrids that created problems with them evolving through alien hybridization and stealing genetics. During Egyptian times a lot of damage was incurred by the lower RA entities who descended further, and some of these extremely negative branches are called Horus-RA entities, and they were working with the control of the Sun and Solar System. Many of them were abducting humans and exploiting them. They seem to have relationships with these Annunaki factions in the Middle East.

So in my experience, the RA Confederation is a part of the Guardian Alliance that exists through the 14th dimension in the Seven Higher Heavens and has a major project in finding all their Gold Ray aspects that got lost down in the phantom dimensions, and have reptile hybridization problems. They are linked into the consciousness family of Seraphim so they have all the genetic damage to deal with in relationship to the Golden Eagle Grid, and repairing horizontal grids and the respective timefields.

It is a part of our mission in ES to help the Gold Ray and Seraphim Families be retrieved, and have opportunity to heal all of the related issues so they can return home to their families. The RA confederation through the next Universe works with us in relationship to this part of the planetary emancipation gridwork and Ascension Plan B projects that go back to the Covenant of Paliador. There are extensions of this RA family in the lower dimensions, that we do not communicate directly with. This is because they are infiltrated with Reptoid genetics and can leak information back to the Reptoid groups. These are entities that are “feathered serpents” like Quetzalcoatl, and these entities have destroyed themselves through Blood Sacrifice and partaking in these horrific behaviors (think Aztecs, etc).

For this reason to denote the RA families outside of this Universe, I refer to them as the RA Confederacy or RA Guardians which consist of many unified groups that has many arms that handle a variety of grid projects related to these issues of the Gold Ray and how they impacted synthetic timelines, and the masculine principle in the lower dimensions. There is a branch of the RA confederacy that administer to rehab Fallen entities that have to face their authority to remove certain quarantines, they are a governing body that decides if a group, individual or family has balanced their power abuses in order to remove quarantines, such as the 666 Seal.[5]

Azurites

Lyran Sirian contact expressed that those responsible to guard and protect humanities genetic records and hidden histories were primarily ambassadors of the Sirian administration councils. The Sirian Lodge is a Hall which oversaw the 6D networks which acted as the portal for Star and Indigo Races to incarnate on the earth plane through the Amenti halls. This Lyran-Sirian administrative body created the Azurite council for the sole purpose of a collective team to support the human embodiment of the Jesus Christ or Yeshua Mission to repair these networks and secure the Amenti field. The Azurites were assigned primary responsibility for the carrying out of the Covenant of Paliador which is to recover the lost souls of Tara. The origination of the Azurites goes back to the races that were formed by the RA Confederacy.

Right Eye of Horus

The right eye is called the Eye of Ra, symbolizing the sun. The Right Eye of Horus represents concrete factual information controlled by the left brain. It deals with words, letters, and numbers and those things which are describable in terms of sentences or complete thoughts. It approaches the universe in terms of male oriented ideation.

ROXANNE DUNBAR-ORTIZ: “Thanksgiving: It Has Never Been About Honoring Native Americans” (Transcript)

national-day-of-mourning

TRANSCRIPT:


NERMEEN SHAIKH: As much of the United States prepares to mark Thanksgiving this weekend, many Native Americans will gather in Plymouth to commemorate the 47th National Day of Mourning.  This year is dedicated to water protectors at Standing Rock and to the struggle for recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.  To discuss this and more, we’re joined in San Francisco by indigenous historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.  She’s the author of An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States and co-author of All the Real Indians Died Off:  And 20 Other Myths About Native Americans.

Welcome back to Democracy Now!, Roxanne.  Could you tell us, as the nation prepares to observe  Thanksgiving, a national holiday ostensibly meant to honor Native people, what are your thoughts?

ROXANNE DUNBARORTIZ:  Well, thank you for having me on the show.

Actually, it’s never been about honoring Native Americans.  It’s been about the origin story of the United States, the beginning of genocide, dispossession and constant warfare from that time — actually, from 1607 in Jamestown — until the present. It’s a colonial system that was set up.

There’s a sort of annual calendar for this origin story, beginning with Columbus, October 12.  Why celebrate Columbus?  It was the onset of colonialism, the slave trade and dispossession of the Native people of the Americas.  So, that is celebrated with a federal holiday.  That’s followed then by Thanksgiving, which is a completely made-up story to say the Native people welcomed these people who were going to devastate their civilizations, which is simply a lie.  And then you go to Presidents’ Days, the Founding Fathers, in February, and celebrate these slaveowners, Indian killers.  George Washington headed the Virginia militia for the very purpose of killing Native people on the periphery of the colony, before, you know, when it was still a Virginia colony.  And then we have the big day, the fireworks, July 4th, independence, which is probably the most tragic event in world history, because it gave us — it gave the world a genocidal regime under the guise of democracy.  And that’s really the — I’m a historian, so that’s the historical context that I think we have to see Thanksgiving in, that it is a part of that mythology that attempts to cover up the real history of the United States.

It actually — when it was introduced as a holiday by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, there was no mention of pilgrims and Native people or food or pumpkins or anything like that.  It was simply a day for families to be together and mourn their dead and be grateful for the living.  And I think that’s an appropriate holiday, that — how people should enjoy it.  But they should take Native Americans and Puritans out of the picture for it to be a legitimate holiday of feast and sharing with family and friends.

So, that’s — you know, the people at Plymouth, I send greetings to them.  They have, for many years — I think it’s almost 40 years now — stood up and testified to the lie of Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower, the pilgrims.  And this is very hard for people to give up.  This is the national — nationalism.  It’s actually — Americanism is white supremacy and represents negative things.  There’s almost no way to reconcile it. It simply has to be deconstructed and faced up to; and, otherwise, there will be no social change that’s meaningful for anyone.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, thank you so much for joining us, indigenous historian and activist.
