Angry Ward Churchill and 9/11

http://www.darknightpress.org/index....rint&article=9

Check this out. I'm surprised that no one's brought this up, and I'm sure this jacka$$ will have his apologists. But what he wrote is utterly disgusting. To suggest that the 9/11 victims deserved it is appalling, especially since Mohawks helped build the World Trade Center, and one of the Pentagon victims was Cherokee.

At least it's good to see a number of publications and NDNs challenging Churchill's claims of being UKB Cherokee.

Professor Angry At Jodi Rave For Questioning Heritage

Thursday, February 3, 2005

Controversial University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill was furious
over an article written by Native reporter Jodi Rave Lee that questioned his
Indian heritage, The Denver Rocky Mountain News reports.

Rave was a student of Churchill's when she was assigned to write a profile.
She chose him and confronted him on his claims of having Indian ancestry. She
discovered he was enrolled in the United Keetoowah Band of Oklahoma under a
program that let almost anyone become a member.

Rave said the article angered Churchill. "There's no denying what he writes
resonates with a lot of people, but when he says this is something he's
experienced as a Native American man, that's fraudulent," she told The Rocky Mountain
News. She said her grade in his class went from an A to a C-minus.

The UKB eventually stopped the open enrollment program and Churchill is
listed as an associate member, but not a full member, because he couldn't show at
least 1/4th Cherokee blood. According to various reports, he has claimed
Cherokee, Creek, Cree and Metis ancestry. He told The Denver Post he is 3/16th
Cherokee.

Churchill was due to speak at a New York college but the talk was canceled
when controversy erupted for an essay he wrote linking the victims of the
September 11, 2001, terrorist attack to Nazis. The Colorado Legislature passed a
resolution denouncing him.

Churchill stepped down as head of the ethnic studies department on the
CU-Boulder campus but remains as a professor. The CU regents said they would not try
to fire him.

Prof's Indian Roots Disputed

By Stuart Steers, Rocky Mountain News
February 3, 2005

The United Keetoowah Band Cherokee says University of Colorado professor Ward
Churchill is not a member of their tribe.

"He's not in the database at all and is not a member of the Keetoowah," said
Georgia Mauldin, the tribal clerk in Tahlequah, Okla.

In his books and articles, Churchill has described himself as a member of the
Keetoowah Cherokee tribe in Oklahoma. In past interviews, he's claimed to be
one-sixteenth Cherokee.

But the Keetoowah say that's not true.

Attempts to contact Churchill for comment Wednesday on his background were
unsuccessful. But Churchill's claim to American Indian roots has been challenged
repeatedly by people in that community.

One Montana woman has an especially personal tale of confronting Churchill on
his claim to American Indian heritage. She was taking one of Churchill's
classes at CU in 1994 when she wrote an article for the Colorado Daily newspaper,
saying there was no evidence he had any American Indian background.

"For so long it was whispered on campus that he really isn't an Indian," said
Jodi Rave, who studied journalism at CU. "Here you had the director of the
Indian studies program and he's not an Indian."

Rave is a Mandan-Hidatsa Indian originally from North Dakota. Today, she is a
reporter and columnist with the Missoulian newspaper in Missoula, Mont. She
was recently a fellow in the prestigious Nieman program for journalists at
Harvard University.

In one of her journalism classes at CU, Rave was assigned to write a profile,
and she decided to profile Churchill.

"To have somebody of that stature masquerading as an Indian was intriguing to
me," Rave said. "On two separate days I asked him questions. I was up-front
in asking him questions (about his background)."

Rave says she discovered that Churchill had enrolled in the Keetoowah tribe
under a program initiated by a former tribal chairman that let almost anyone
sign up. She says the Keetoowah later discontinued that program and disenrolled
the people who had joined under it.

When her article came out, Rave says Churchill was furious and insisted that
he did have American Indian lineage.

"He called me and said, 'Jodi Rave, this is your professor and I need to talk
to you right away.' He was surprised I had a story published that called into
question his identity."

He also defended his American Indian background and said her story was
unfair.

Rave said she was enrolled in one of Churchill's classes when the article
came out, and her grade went from an A to a C-minus.

She says Churchill can write what he wants, but his claim of American Indian
heritage is bogus.

"There's no denying what he writes resonates with a lot of people, but when
he says this is something he's experienced as a Native American man, that's
fraudulent," Rave said.

The question of who is and who is not an American Indian is a sensitive one
in that community. Many Indians resent the idea that only those who grew up on
a reservation or have two American Indian parents are real Indians.

"Tracking blood lines is the business of Nazi Germany and South Africa (under
apartheid)," said professor George Tinker, who teaches American Indian
culture and religious tradition at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver. "That's
not an Indian issue at all."

Tinker said that it should be up to the tribes themselves to decide who is an
Indian.

The United Keetoowah Band Cherokee

• The word A-ni-kee-too-wah-gee ("Keetoowah people") was used by Cherokee
speakers to refer to themselves. Kituhwa was the mother town of the Cherokees;
its location, probably in present- day North Carolina, is now lost in the past.

• The Keetoowah Society was formed in 1859 by Cherokees transplanted to Okla-
homa on the "Trail of Tears" as a way of preserving cultural traditions.

• The United Keetoowah Band is a part of the Tahlequah, Okla.-based Cherokee
Nation. It was formed from various Cherokeee subgroups after passage of the
Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act in 1936, and it was recognized by Congress in
1949.Source: Www.Cherokeeobserver.Org

I heard this speech today, and an interview with him. Sorry MOTS...though he is educated, I don't see him as smart! Hatred is hatred, whether spewed by whites/blacks/ndns/asians/hispanics/christians/muslims/hindus/jews/arabs...or any other, or combination of race/religion/nationality. Though there is much to be angry about..and ashamed of in this nation's, and really almost all of mankind's history...and treatment of each other...I don't see where lumping any and all Americans together as 'deserving to die' is going to remedy any of that. This man sounds like Osama Bin Laden! He says he's part NDN, maybe so...but he's also a larger part white...does he hate himself, or a least the larger part of himself? Freedom of speech is vital...so he's entitled to his beliefs/opinions...but he's also entitled to the consequences of these, like any other American.

couldnt have said it any better C.. Good post!

BB has a good point too, that if the band that he claims to be apart of are saying he isnt registered nor his ancestors than its Obvious this man is lost in his own Identity, and we all know whats happens to those that follow lost people, they too get lost. Its good that someone had the courage to come out and call him on his shyt, good for the student that exposed him. Good to see more people stand up and take action rather than just talk about the issue and never resolving it.

CSU Controversy

Its interesting that this same university had the controversy of their football coach making discriminating remarks against a female player and they didn't fire him. In fact, they appeared to be supportive.

not necessarily my opinion, but thought this needed to be added to the discussion

from the leonard peltier support team newsletter
==============================
From the LPDC
February 08, 2005
==============================

THE ANTI-AIM TIDE IS RISING

All of us who surround those who were involved in AIM
since the early 70's have known it was coming, or rather
“they” would come for them again. There is no shock in
the recent campaign to discredit Ward Churchill. Most of
all, we are sure Mr. Churchill himself knew it was coming
sooner or later. We are sure Ward is at home asking
himself questions such as: why now, what will be gained by
disabling me at this time and how will this negatively affect
the movement? Most of all, like any good warrior, we hope
he finds himself asking how he can make this work for the
movement’s benefit. Mr. Churchill has co-authored books
which guaranteed he would be attacked by his favorite
organization, the FBI.

His contributions academically to the Indian movement,
whether it be AIM or a generation of like minded thinkers,
has been vast. Without books such as Agents of
Repression: The FBI’s Secret Wars Against the Black
Panther Party and the American Indian Movement and The
COINTELPRO Papers: Documents from the FBI’s Secret
War Against Dissent in the United States our generate
on and those younger would not have a map by which we
can predict the government’s response and how they will
work to stop Indians being outspoken. Simply put, we
firmly believe that many of AIM’s figureheads are modern
day Indian heroes. We cannot sit by and watch our
government continue to destroy Native Americans.

Mr. Churchill’s writings are motivational in a way the
government does not appreciate. His writings are critical of
the government. We believe any educated Indian would
have to agree with his works and themes though not
necessarily embrace every point. We believe we need
people such as Mr. Churchill who are not afraid to exercise
their First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech.
American Indians need to feel free to speak.

Please note the newspaper reporters seem to forget how
long ago Mr. Churchill wrote the 9/11 piece. It is also
important to note how the mainstream press has totally
misinterpreted \and misreported Mr. Churchill’s statements
and intent. We challenge those who have not read Mr.
Churchill to read what he has written and draw their own
conclusions and not be swayed by the propaganda being
spread by the mainstream media.

Our question is why all of a sudden is the press attaching
Mr. Churchill for issues which happened more than a year
ago? This is not news, these are old issues. We should all
be asking ourselves why now. Our belief is, that as we
await the results of the John Graham extradition hearing,
the United States wishes to raise anti-AIM sentiments
hoping to use the John Graham extradition as a vehicle to
attack people such as Ward Churchill and Leonard Peltier.

We would like to remind the older generation of AIM of
allegiance and honor. Don’t forget, years of knowing each
other, and years of trying to have Leonard Peltier freed
means there is a spider web of relationships which the
government is clearly trying to unentangle and frame
Leonard as a patsy.

We are not saying Anna Mae does not deserve justice. We
believe she was a loyal AIM woman and she should be
treated as such. We believe that those involved in what
happened to her owe her family answers, very soon. We
hope her family still believes as she did, in the cause and
rights of Indians. Please beware the government will use
Anna Mae’s murder, 9/11 and anything else they find
inflammatory right now to turn the tide against AIM and
against Leonard Peltier. Our phones are tapped, of this we
are sure, so the FBI clearly knows lately those at the LPDC
have made some great contacts internationally. We assure
you they want to turn the tide against Leonard and AIM
right now, they must undo all our work, they must keep us
down. Remember these guys earn a paycheck to suppress
us, we have nothing but pocket lint because it is our lives.
But if we do not let the rising anti-AIM tide drown our
spirits we can still win. We say good luck Mr. Churchill.
We personally like the way you exercise your first
amendment rights.

AIM's just a bunch of useless thugs. Read the accounts of News from Indian Country, then see if you think Leonard Peltier is innocent.

Being that Churchill is the fraud that he is, why wouldn't CU go after him for that? After all, he lied about his credentials. His 9/11 comments shouldn't matter.

As for the Peltier apologists, it isn't just the FBI who wants to discredit AIM and Churchill, it's other NDNs.

Well As I see it.. AIM can like him all they want. The brunt of the matter is this, the last thing anyone will remember of this guy is his nazi comments and that he was supposed to be a native... that's not the kind of publicity any native nation needs. It won't be remembered by non natives that he was proven a fraud ndn, and therefore all the good that he may or may not have done (his books which no, I have'nt read) will be dismissed for that reason. Dude was'nt just a fake, which some might have overlooked had he not made a carreer killing comment like he did. It's like the dixie chicks... three very smart and talented women who made the wrong comment to the wrong country at the wrong time with the wrong music genre... they will never get what they had back.

Ward Churchill was scheduled to speak at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York on February 3, 2005. His appearance was canceled by the college after he caused a public furor over his loathsome remarks about the 9-11 tragedy in New York. AIM's Grand Governing Council has been dealing with Churchill's hateful attitude and rip-off of Indian people for years.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The American Indian Movement Grand Governing Council representing the National and International leadership of the American Indian Movement once again is vehemently and emphatically repudiating and condemning the outrageous statements made by academic literary and Indian fraud, Ward Churchill in relationship to the 9-11 tragedy in New York City that claimed thousands of innocent people’s lives.

Churchill’s statement that these people deserved what happened to them, and calling them little Eichmanns, comparing them to Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, who implemented Adolf Hitler’s plan to exterminate European Jews and others, should be condemned by all.

The sorry part of this is Ward Churchill has fraudulently represented himself as an Indian, and a member of the American Indian Movement, a situation that has lifted him into the position of a lecturer on Indian activism. He has used the American Indian Movement’s chapter in Denver to attack the leadership of the official American Indian Movement with his misinformation and propaganda campaigns.

Ward Churchill has been masquerading as an Indian for years behind his dark glasses and beaded headband. He waves around an honorary membership card that at one time was issued to anyone by the Keetoowah Tribe of Oklahoma. Former President Bill Clinton and many others received these cards, but these cards do not qualify the holder a member of any tribe. He has deceitfully and treacherously fooled innocent and naïve Indian community members in Denver, Colorado, as well as many other people worldwide. Churchill does not represent, nor does he speak on behalf of the American Indian Movement.

New York’s Hamilton College Kirklands Project should be aware that in their search for truth and justice, the idea that they have hired a fraud to speak on Indian activism is in itself a betrayal of their goals.

Colorado governor still wants Churchill fired
Thursday, February 10, 2005

Colorado Gov. Bill Owens (R) on Wednesday said controversial University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill should be fired because his research has been questioned.

Owens wants to know how Churchill received tenure at CU, which receives limited funding from the state. "If he wasn't competent and didn't act with a sense of integrity, we have every right to discipline him, and that could include firing him," Owens said on CNN.

Churchill said he won't apologize for an essay linking the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to Nazis. He is being defended by the American Indian Movement of Colorado, which supports his claim of Indian ancestry. Churchill says he is 3/16 Cherokee but is not enrolled in a federally-recognized tribe.

I don't like Ann Coulter, and I sure don't care for the headline or some of her comments, but for once she makes some valid points about Churchill.

Just as I suspected; AIM put out an official statement, to let people know what a disgraceful man this is.

I am confused! We've got Alfred Bone Shirt defending him then we've got all of us who thinks otherwise of Churchill.

Suzan Harjo Tells it Like it Is

A lot of times I don't agree with Suzan Harjo, nor do I really care for Indian Country Today, but in this column, she hits the nail on the head.

Kudos to Suzan Harjo.

Now if we can get somebody to verify this story so that we can make sense of this mess.
