Actualizing the Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor for Indigenous Self Determination

"The question is no longer whether the Doctrine of Discovery as it is still being perpetuated in policy and practice across the hemisphere is valid. That question has been answered, definitively and finally. There is no moral, legal, or cultural presentation that can legitimately argue that the theory of the Divine Right of Kings, which spawned the Doctrine of Discovery by Christendom, can hold any validity in a democratic society. What is in question now, is on what side of history will each of us as individuals, as families, as communities, as nations and as Human Beings stand. Will we stand up in continental uprising to DISMANTLE and then SUPERSEDE the DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY, or will we comply with the dehumanizing regimes of state sanctioned genocide and colonization that continue to prop up the racist relics and psychological pathogens of the European American project of colonization known as America?”
Here is a regional cartographic presentation of the northern territories of the Great Turtle Island Abya Yala which shows the overlay of the current settler states of the USA, and the outline of the 1803 Louisiana Purchase which purportedly ascribed jurisdiction over the Traditional Territories of the Oceti Sakowwin Dakota-Nakota-Lakota Nations and all others within the bounds of the Purchase, as well as a bright spot of Resistance, Rebellion, and REGENERATION of the fight for INDIGENOUS SELF DETERMINATION at Standing Rock. 

ANY PERMITTING by any US federal, state, or local jurisdiction in these territories for development projects that impact territorial rights of Original Nations of Indigenous Peoples, who were never part of the negotiations involving the Louisiana Purchase much less recognized in its provisions necessarily is based on the legitimacy of the transition of jurisdiction from France to the US in 1803.


The territories of the Louisiana Purchase had only been within the control of the French for three years, since the Third Treaty of San Ildefonso 1800 when Spain cedes to France its rights to the lands of its former colonial claims in North America.  Spain's claims in to territorial rights in North America, Central America, South America were all based on the colonial Doctrine of Discovery of Christendom dated from October 12, 1492, and subsequently affirmed and sanctified by the head of the Vatican State Pope Alexander  VI with the Papal Bull Inter Caetera on May 2,3 of 1493.

The US needs this French claim via the Spanish claim to territorial rights to be validated in order to exercise domain over the territory, in particular because in the Treaty of Paris 1783 that ended the revolutionary war against Great Britain, the US agreed to limit its territorial claims to east of the Appalachia Mountains.

In other words, the US could not inscribe itself in any claim that Great Britain had west of the Appalachia Mountains, which would also necessarily be based on the same Doctrine of Discovery of Christendom of 1492.

In 1823 the US Supreme Court decision Johnson v. M'Intosh articulated this position and it remains the law of all US jurisdictions at all levels today in 2016.

In this geopolitical, historical, and legal scenario, how does the conflict at Standing Rock reveal an opening for a new approach to the resolve the systemic injustices that continue to be normalized by the subverting of the International Personality of Original Nations of the Great Turtle Island Abya Yala?

It is not a question, it is a QUEST.

 Colonization matters, it is not only illegal but if the future of Humanity is to be realized within a collective and life affirming culture of mutual respect for the natural world which we share equally in responsibility, the DOGMA of DOMINION which gave birth to the concept as a norm of “civilized man” aka the “White Man’s Burden” must be challenged and dismantled.

Regurgitated by the institutionalized racism of the settler states of America and sanctified by the dogma of cultural supremacy of European American Christendom, the “chosen people” of the “City on the Hill” are called to continue to play out their role as minions of nefarious Doctrine of Discovery 1492.

The insidious nature of the pogrom extends to the point where even the colonizing construct of “Latin America” has subverted the self determination and Nationhood of Original Nations Abya Yala by the Genizaro Republics of the Americas and their radical ideologues of both the right and left of the Game of Thrones: The concept of State Sovereignty via Westphalia 1648.
