About this Book

“That the aboriginal tribes of this continent are destined to become extinct, and that consequently there is little reason to hope that anything can be done for their permanent good, seems to be very a very common impression. In regard to this point there are few questions which deserve to be noticed briefly.
First, it must be conceded, as a matter of history, that many tribes and bands which once inhabited the country now occupied by people of these United States have greatly diminished and some of them have disappeared altogether. War, and spirit-water, and the disease introduced among them by the white people, have wrought out their legitimate effects. A different course of treatment would undoubtedly have greatly modified or entirely changed the character of these results. But admitting the worst in regard to the past, an interesting question here presents itself, viz. : How far has the diminution of the Indian, as such, served to increase the numbers of our own white population?”

“EKTA ETUWA” Cousins, Respectfully, this last sentence speaks volumes when it says, “the diminution of the Indian…”   Diminution means:  the act, process, or an instance of becoming gradually less (as in size or importance) : the act, process, or an instance of diminishing …   The following sentences –

“…that many tribes and bands which once inhabited the country now occupied by people of these United States have greatly diminished and some of them have disappeared altogether. War, and spirit-water, and the disease introduced among them by the white people…”

paint a clear picture of the devices use to accomplish the deliberate diminution of Aboriginal Native tribes of this land now known as America…
Some 170 years after these lines were written the Aboriginal Native peoples of this land now known as America not only survived but are striving locally, Nationally, and Internationally…  

 

 


From Pocahontas until now, the native has learned to adapt and assimilate without losing our culture and ancestral heritage…  When all those with Aboriginal Native blood running through their veins feel safe enough to come out of the shadows of the shades of colors they assimilated too the truth will be revealed  that the Aboriginal Native culture is as strong as ever…
The likes of Tiger Woods and Joe Jackson and even Ms. Doria Ragland, the mother of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, are all rumored to have Tainos Native American ancestry…  


Therefore one can deduce that natives have not died off like many white of that day and this day would have assumed but have simply assimilated into the culture that most reflect their skin color while maintaining there native aboriginal ways…  
All native people remember old white hair ancestor saying to them don’t ever forget the things and the ways I have taught you and now it’s up to you to  pass them on to the next generation…  I remember so clearly when my father, who was Croatan from the eastern band of the Croatan Nation, teaching me things by the river and on the land that he said had be given him and now he was giving them to me…  He told me to never forget them  and to remind other cousins that you still remember him and his ways…

 

 

The culture that I remember had to do with a Song and a Pipe and a Fire and a Stone and a Pot and a Hammer and a Trowel and finally a King James bible…  He said never forget him and don’t let anyone else forget him or his father (my grandfather) because from one comes the other and on and on… 
Therefore ceremony is about remembering those that have crossed over before us…  Ceremony has less to do with any supernatural spirit as it has to do with the smoke and the drum and the song  and the  pot and the dance…  These things are the pentacle of the spirit world from which all living things draw life…  
My father took me to where his father took him he learned these things on the east coast of North Carolina in Pender County and around the swamps and lands of Robeson county where I was born…   


The native indigenous aboriginal people have a saying “NOTHING IS WASTED…”  My people have always been residual in turning what others would call nothing into something; and that same spirit was passed down to me…  
The White man in this book and even them today don’t believe that GOd is on the side of the oppressed Indigenous Aboriginal Natives of this land now known as America but only a fool would believe that we have made it here this long without a power greater than ourselves blessing us to do so…  


The White man claimed that they came to this land to spread the gospel to the
so-called lost native as they stole everything that the so-called lost had including their language…  But the one thing is true, the so-called lost native did get to know the God of the King James 1 bible they claimed to spread and now that God is on the side of the native…  
Powhatan sacrificed his own daughter to the white man in order to learn their way especially their source of power which he thought was their guns… Pocahontas got with the white man and quickly realized that the true power was in the book that the white man read daily called the Bible…

 

 

Pocahontas demonstrated this by learning the white man’s language and converting to christianity and getting baptised…   I believe she understood this man the white man called Jesus was a greater King than the King James 1 whose name was on the the book they worshipped…  I believe that in her simple way of seeing the world she knew that it was better to know the King of Kings whose was more just and honest as the King James 1 she met who had lied to her and indirectly her father who had sent her…  I believe that God honored her simple belief and blessed it as a new way for her and her people to be saved…
Pocahontas was more than just a Savage Christian Princess she was also an  evangelist to the new world to introduce her people to this new King who would deliver them and heal their land…

 

 

The story of Pocahontas lives on today as a testimony of the good works that God started in her that has spread throughout all Native Aboriginal Indigenous people of this land now known as America…
So now when the white man hears the Native people singing praises to Jesus in their own language they have to think to themselves that God truly has no respect of person; whosoever will let him come and the Native Indigenous Aboriginal people did come…  The word of God of the Bible of King James 1 is more powerful to the Native Indigenous Aboriginal people than any gun against the white man because the white man cannot deny its authority; because it is the foundation of all things this United States of America Government is founded upon…

 

 

“EKTA ETUWA” Cousins the author of this book based on the following sentences – 

“…that many tribes and bands which once inhabited the country now occupied by people of these United States have greatly diminished and some of them have disappeared altogether. War, and spirit-water, and the disease introduced among them by the white people…”     

it appears the white man believed that the Native Aboriginal Indigenous people would be completely extinct by now but the God of the King James 1 Bible he introduced us to have different plans…
