Gathering Power


Rise up Racine the Natives have come to save us!

Of all things to think that the Natives coming to protect their dead is casing quite the dust up.


Last night about 15 gathered at Mound Cemetery to perform a Pipe Ceremony to thank God for the help He provided to stop the Hater of Natives Mayor John Dickert plans for IMHO desecration of Naive Mounds for the benefit of a group of Good Old Boys, and ask protection and give Thanks to God for the members of the Cemetery Commission  that fought battles to protect the graves of their folk.

Now the natives had come and in numbers. Yesterday morning about 4-6 members spoke up armed WITH THE LAW that even Mayor John Dicket must obey in this case The  archaeologists refused to work once they where told and shown the  State law on this Native Graves issues (as I understand it) 

Last night a few more to give thanks and prepare for today


Oh Glory to God for today!  He Came to Racine to protect His dead from ruin!

Look at His hands on Earth


(From Racine Uncovered)

From 3 States (IL MI WI) and Nations (Ho-Chunk Cree Mohawk and others) they came Young and Old Men Women and Children  Full Blooded Mixed (me) and Friends of the Tribes on this issue they came!  They came in love not hate in fact one of the leaders said “If you came to play Cops and Indians get in your cars and go home” I heard no one say anything bad about the family wanting to buy the Mound or even the Mayor in fact this was send to both Parties as a way to end the fight

About 100 came sang drummed smoked PIpes talked to others about what was going on including WTMJ   Interesting thing Mr. X handed Documents to the TV crew that by the look on their faces shocked them. More interesting Mr R showed up and interacted with the Tribes Leadership

The J-T showed up Mr Burke from what I saw was an jerk to the Leadership who still answered questions and repaid with Love the disrespect Burke showed.

Please read the below:


How can the above been seen as anything but a way to move beyond the Mound fight? That was send last week. I hope the Mayor uses it as a way to save face. Yet from what I understand they are willing to fight this in Court and actions in Racine.

Whom would have thought that of all the folks fighting the Mayor on issues that this one would get the most press and traction?

Interesting too is what do YOU think folks outside Racine think about our Mayor? About Racine?

Might this be on there mind?

    Concerned Native Americans and residents of Racine are not protesting the Mayor’s decision. This is an issue about fundamental fairness and respect for a Native American Burial Mound that is clearly identified on the 1850 map that created Mound Cemetery. There is also the issue of the promise to respect those Mounds made by the City to the Potawatomi Family that sold these lands to the City.

    It is also an issue of fairness to the other residents of Racine. If the land was salable, its actual value is $300,000, not the $16,000 that the Mayor wants to give it away for. Further, these cronies of the Mayor have already been granted special privileges by the Mayor in being allowed to block the sale of a Downtown Racine property to an African-American Funeral home and then being given tax-exempt status on that property when they purchased it after successfully blocking the sale.

    There is also video evidence that indicates that the Mayor’s vote may have been rigged and the circumstances surrounding the vote are highly suspicious. For all these reasons and more, we are asking that the sale be voided and the land remain as currently platted.

    That’s NOT what the AP reported:

    Opponents seek better testing for evidence of Racine Indian mound

    By Associated Press

    Racine — Plans to examine whether an American Indian burial mound exists in a parcel of land at Mound Cemetery have been put on hold for now, after scientists who planned to take soil borings Friday at the southeastern Wisconsin site were greeted by opponents who called for a less-invasive form of testing.

    That came as good news to Burlington resident Theresa Siedel, who said she is Lanape-Seneca-Catawba and Mackinaw-Chippewa.

    “Native people in the area are coming together and saying, ‘Slow down, stop,'” Siedel said.

    The Journal Times reported that the team, led by University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee archaeologist Tom Zych, has a permit, but is going to talk with the state to see if other measures can be taken before proceeding.
