Mormons and Native Americans

I guess that this religious group forgot about the book by Robert Frank Heizer?

The Destruction of the California Indians

books

This book is only reporting about Mormons and the indigenous peoples of California.

What about the rest of the country?

Pick your book then read the rest of this story?

According to a story in The New York Times (October 31, 2013), Mormons are making efforts to share goods, companionship, and the promise of identity among peoples who have suffered jarring circumstances ever since “white people” came across them.

This is as it should be because the church people where big abusers of the native people plus took the children as slaves and to be sole.

The Destruction of the California Indians by Frank Heizer.

The book is a sad recount through news stories and letters of the period in California history when Native people were not only losing their land and their culture, but their children as well, to the Gold Miners, the Mormons and the U.S. Military.

The Mormons have historically not been very Christian towards the Indigenous people of this country.

The story if you wish to read about it, is in the book:

The Destruction of the California Indians by Frank Heizer.

The book is a sad recount through news stories and letters of the period in California history when Native people were not only losing their land and their culture, but their children as well, to the Gold Miners, the Mormons and the U.S. Military.

The Mormons called the Natives savages not fit to raise children and took them, making them into their own personal slaves and selling the leftovers to others to be used for the same purpose.

Everybody took something from those who asked only to be left in peace.

Now, these same Mormons, are quite upset with HBO for filming what they consider to be a sacred ceremony, the Endowment Ceremony.

Excuse me for not being too empathetic.

My people have been fighting with them about this same kind of insult, since the Europeans first landed on this Continent.

Outsiders have for centuries, barged into our sacred ceremonies, killed our people when not allowed to take part in them and in recent times, filmed whenever and wherever they felt fit.

No one has ever screamed out for our rights about this.

What is that saying about Karma? My advice to the Mormons is

“Walk a mile in my moccasins”.
