    okay ladies, we're on the verge of a new year, what is everyone looking forward to?
    i know most of us are working on new outfits if not for ourselves then for family.
    fancystar and i are making a new grass outfit for my older son.
    hope to see some people over at statesville.
    plan to travel more this year may even go to some out west.
    would love to see crow fair, that would be the biggest thing for me this coming year.
    hope the new year is good to everyone and be safe this evening.
    Well will wonders never cease.....

      Why do some people bother breathing when you know their brain isn't getting the oxygen?

                one thing I have found out about that site has caused me to remove the link to it.... It is supported by Ray Halbritter from Onieda. Due to the many fouls on humanity to his own people, I cannot in good consience ask anyone to visit that site anymore or support it.

                      Ray Halbritter?

                      I think the guy is a dictator. Correct me if I'm wrong Oneida people.

                        why do you think that?

                          this is one of the things that were sent out about this guy....

                          Ray Halbritter, self-proclaimed Nation Representative and CEO of the Oneida Nation, Inc. owns and operates the Turning Stone Casino, plus numerous other enterprises. The casino was opened by secret negotiations with New York governor Mario Cuomo, without the knowledge of the Oneida nation. He created a 54 member non-Native police force to consolidate his power on the Oneida territory.
                          Halbritter has been removed from his position as
                          spokesperson for the nation by his clan mother and
                          the Iroquois Grand Council and yet still is recognized by the BIA and the state government. His latest attempt to gain control over the 32 acre territory resulted in the terrorization of Daniel Patterson, daughter of Masie Shenandoah, clan mother of the wolf clan. Daniel's trailer has been condemned and maybe demolished any time by Dec.15th.
                          Halbritter has also:
                          1. Locked the doors to the Long House allowing use
                          only for his appointed non-traditional men's council
                          2. Stripped the traditional Haudenosaunee of their
                          voice and removed them from tribal roles, unless they agree to publicly accept his non-traditional dictatorship.
                          3. Banned photographers and reporters from the 32 acre Territory.
                          4. Used a 5.1 million-acre land claims suit as a
                          bargaining chip to build more casinos, and filed
                          lawsuits against landowners without the traditional
                          people's knowledge or consent.
                          This list could go on and on, but for those of you
                          who would like more detailed information visit:
                 There is an action that everyone can do to help; Halbritter is the sole owner of Indian Country Today, which was originally owned by Tim Giago.

                          Northeast AIM is calling for a boycott of this

                          ************************************************** ********

                          Ray Halbritter is taking a two week vacation and things have really slowed down here on the territory. I personally think Ray's tactics are to wait us out; hope that we leave, and go back to business as usual. But, there is always the possiblity that he wants to keep a distance while his GOON's do his dirty work. Oh, GOON's is what we refer to his police force. Oneida Nation Police
                          (Guardians of the Oneida Nation). Fitting name because his tactics and sell out of his people reminds us of Dick Wilson. The shooting of his opposition would most likely happen if he thought he could get away with it.
                          Anyway, I am here to see this struggle through to
                          the end, and wish to personally thank all of those
                          who have supported us in this struggle to bring
                          Native Sovereignty back where it belongs - in the
                          hands of the traditionalist.

                              in so many terms...he is half owner...or he funds it in part..something like that..but I read that from the site itself, not hearsay.
