Phil Konstantin's August 2013 Newsletter
=================================

Greetings,

I have spent quite a bit of time this month updating things on my 
website. I have gone through all of the Links pages and deleted 
all of the websites which no longer exist. I have also found new 
addresses for many websites which have changed locations. For 
those websites which no longer exist, and I thought they were 
useful in their time, I have tried to add a link to an online 
service which will show you what the website looked like back 
when it still worked.

The tribal Links page ( http://americanindian.net/links2.html ) 
now has links to ALL of the US Federally recognized tribes. This 
includes informational sites if the tribe does not have a website 
of their own. I have also found websites for many of the First 
Nations in Canada. I'll be adding more of those as I get time.

It is quite a chore to keep up with all of these links, but I 
will try to keep at it. Some links may not work from time to 
time as websites are updated. Others will cease to exist because 
whomever was running them stops. If you find any broken links 
(and the page dopes not list it as an occasionally down site), 
please let me know.

You can see all of my past newsletters by visiting my Newsletter 
page at: http://americanindian.net/newsletter.html .

Make sure you find the Video/Audio and Tribal Newsletters links 
below. They are between the News links and the History section.

I haven't been writing much in recent months regarding American 
Indian subjects. The first link in the News section below is a 
short article I did about an old connection between San Diego, 
California and the Cherokee Nation. It came out this month in 
the online version of the Cherokee Phoenix.

The Link of the Month for August is "First Nations - Land Rights 
and Environmentalism in British Columbia."

This website "documents in pictures with commentary the environmental 
havoc caused by European settler society to the pre colonial world 
of what is now known as British Columbia (BC). It argues that the 
road back to environmental sanity must go through the restitution 
of past wrongs to First Nations by means of strong support for 
their land rights over and against the continuing rapacious and 
short sighted destruction of primaeval forests, ancient trees, wild 
salmon runs, grizzly bear habitats, etc. The European First Nations 
website links political activism with the results of scholarly and 
scientific studies by juxtaposing historical images with 
representations of current affairs."

The Treaty of the Month for August is about a treaty signed in 
400 years ago in 1613 between the Onondaga and the British. Here 
are several websites which talk about it

The Cherokee National Holiday is a celebration of Cherokee heritage, 
cultural awareness, and reuniting of families. Thousands of Cherokees 
and visitors from across the United States and abroad make the pilgrimage 
to the historic Cherokee Nation capital in Tahlequah, Oklahoma to 
renew friendships and celebrate the Cherokee spirit. The holiday has 
been observed annually since 1953 to commemorate the signing of the 
1839 Cherokee Constitution. With an exciting array of entertainment, 
cultural and athletic events, it has grown into one of the largest 
festivals in Oklahoma, attracting more than 100,000 visitors from 
across the world.

History section:

Here are some randomly picked historical events for August



  August 1: 1813: Today, Fort Stephenson, at modern Fremont, Ohio, will be
  attacked by British Major Henry A.Proctor, and 1200 British and Indians.
  The fort is defended by Major George Croghan, and 120 men. The Americans
  will fire only when the British and Indians are at close range. During
  the two day battle, the Americans will have only one man killed. The
  British and Indians will sustain more than 1200 casualties.



  August 2: 1792: MOHEGAN Samson Occom dies today in New Stockbridge, New
  York. A protege of Rev.Eleazar Wheelock, Occom will learn numerous
  foreign languages, become an ordained minister, be the first Indian to
  preach in England, minister to many Indian tribes, and be instrumental
  in the establishment of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.



  August 3: 1889: General Crook, and the other treaty commissioners, were
  having no luck in convincing the large groups of SIOUX and the Standing
  Rock Agency to agree to move to smaller reservations, and to sell their
  "excess" lands for $1.50 an acre. Sitting Bull continued to "disrupt"
  the meetings with his angry denunciation of any attempts to sell Indian
  lands. Crook decided he would make more progress by talking to the
  tribal leaders individually. On this date, without informing Sitting
  Bull, Crook held a final meeting. Local agent James McLaughlin had his
  tribal police surround the meeting site to prevent any of the
  rabble-rousers from attending. Eventually, Sitting Bull worked his way
  past the police, and addressed the meeting. Sitting Bull was incensed
  because he had not been informed of the meeting. McLaughlin told the
  meeting that everyone knew of the meeting. At that time, Chief John
  Grass, and many of the other Chiefs came forward to sign the treaty, and
  to break up the large reservation. Sitting Bull vented his frustration
  at the other Chiefs, but he was out voted.



  August 4: 1862: In July, the money promised to the SANTEE SIOUX in
  Minnesota was scheduled to arrive. When Little Crow, and the other
  SIOUX, reported to their reservation's upper agency on the Yellow
  Medicine River, they were told the money had not arrived. The winter had
  been bad, and the summer crops were poor. Little Crow asked Agent Thomas
  Galbraith to open up the local warehouse, which was full of food.
  Galbraith said there would be no food if there was no money. On this
  date, Little crow, and 500 SIOUX warriors surround the badly outnumber
  soldiers guarding the warehouse. The SANTEE break in and start unloading
  supplies. The commanding officer of the garrison, Timothy Sheehan,
  understands the frustration of the hungry Indians, and he convinces
  Galbraith to officially issue the food to the SANTEE. Little Crow also
  gets a promise that the lower agency will also issue supplies. The
  SANTEE then leave peacefully.



  August 5: 1881: The Crow Dog murder case goes to the Supreme Court.



  August 6: 1846: The old settlers and the new emigrants factions of the
  CHEROKEE have been arguing over who has legal control of the CHEROKEE
  Nation since the late 1830s. It has even been proposed that the nation
  split into two tribes. Today, the different sides will sign a treaty in
  Washington,D.C. The treaty will confirm that there will only be one
  CHEROKEE Nation.

  California.

  Lake) was born near Ganawagus, New York sometime around 1735. He fought
  in many battles during the French and Indian Wars, and during the
  American Revolution. Later he would battle alcoholism. One day a vision
  led him to give up drinking and to promote traditional Indian ways among
  his people. He became a Chief among the SENECA based on his wise
  council. He once spoke before President Jefferson on behalf of his
  people. His teachings have been handed down among the IROQUOIS. He died
  today in Onondaga.

  August 11: 1988: The ALEUT receive restitution for loses in WWII today.



  August 12: 1878: The PAIUTE Chief Oytes, and his followers, will
  surrender today. This will effectively end the PAIUTEs' participation in
  the BANNOCK war.



  August 13: 1587: Manteo, a CROTAN Indian has converted to the Church of
  England. Today, he is baptized by Sir Walter Raleigh. In respect for his
  help with Raleigh's colonists, Raleigh gives him the title of "Lord of
  Roanoke and of Dasamonquepeuk."



  August 14: 1559: Tristan de Luna y Arellano has been appointed to
  establish Spanish settlements on Pensacola Bay by the Spanish Viceroy in
  Mexico. Today, his expedition of 13 ships, several priests, 500
  soldiers, and 1000 settlers will arrive in Pensacola Bay, in Florida.
  Much of the expedition will be killed or starve because of a hurricane
  which struck the area a few days later.



  August 15: 1642: In instructions to the Pennsylvania Governor John
  Printz, of New Sweden, the Queen of Sweden wished for "the wild nations"
  to be treated kindly, and in a humane manner. She also stated that the
  Indians were the "rightful lords" of this land, and must be treated
  accordingly.



  August 16: 1812: SHAWNEE Chief Tecumseh has been commissioned as a
  Brigadier General by the British. With his Indians forces, he will be

  to the UTE Reservation.



  August 18: 1863: As a part of the Canyon de Chelly Campaign, Kit Carson,
  and General James Charlatan, were trying to starve the NAVAJOs into
  submission. Today, General Charlatan will put a bounty on NAVAJO
  livestock. Every good horse or mule would bring twenty dollars, quite a
  sum for those days. Each sheep would earn one dollar.



  August 19: 1854: a MINICONJOU SIOUX, named High Forehead, kills a sickly
  cow near Fort Laramie, in southeastern Wyoming. The cow's owner
  complains to the fort's commander. A brash Brevet Second Lieutenant John
  L.Grattan, and 30 volunteers leave the fort today to find the SIOUX
  involved. Grattan goes to Conquering Bear's BRULE SIOUX camp near Ash
  Hollow, and demands the Indian who shot the cow. Grattan makes numerous
  threats at the SIOUX, but they won't hand over High Forehead. During the
  parlay, a shot rings out, and Grattan's artillery gunners open fire on
  the camp. Conquering Bear tries to get both sides to stop shooting, but
  he is hit by an artillery round. Eventually, all but one of Grattan's
  men will be killed in the fighting.




  August 20: 1851: One in a series of treaties with California Indians is
  signed today at Lipayuma. This treaty says it will set aside lands for
  the Indians and protect them from Americans.



  August 21: 1871: Treaty Number Two (Manitoba Post Treaty), is concluded
  between the Canadian Government, and the CHIPPEWA. They sell 35,700
  square miles of land, in exchange for certain reservation lands, an
  annuity, schools and other items.



  August 22: 1862: Today, 800 SANTEE SIOUX will attack Fort Ridgely, in
  south-central Minnesota. The fort is defended by approximately 150
  soldiers, and two dozen volunteers. The SIOUX will sneak up to the fort,
  and try to set fire to it. When the SIOUX attacked, the Army responded
  with an artillery barrage. Little Crow will be wounded in the fighting,
  and Mankato will take over. The artillery will make the difference in
  the fighting, and the SIOUX will retreat.



  August 23: 1724: British forces under Capt. Moulton stage a supprise
  attack on an ABENAKI village at Norridgewock. 27 people, including a
  resident French priest Father Rasles, would be scalped by the English.
  The village would be burned. This would be a big blow to the spirit of
  the local Indians.



  August 24: 1869: For his actions on July 8, 1869, Mad Bear will receive
  the Congressional Medal of Honor today.



  August 25: 1737: A agreement will be signed today by Thomas Penn and
  MUNSEE Chiefs Manawkyhickon and Nutimus. The agreement will call for
  Indian lands to be sold along the Delaware river for the distance that a

Native American History For Dummies

I wrote six of the twenty-four chapters in this book. I am credited with being the technical editor. Book Description:
Native American History For Dummies introduces readers to the thousand-year-plus history of the first inhabitants of North America and explains their influence on the European settlement of the continent. Covering the history and customs of the scores of tribes that once populated the land, this friendly guide features vivid studies of the lives of such icons as Pocahontas, Sitting Bull, and Sacagawea; discusses warfare and famous battles, offering new perspectives from both battle lines; and includes new archaeological and forensic evidence, as well as oral histories that show events from the perspective of these indigenous peoples. The authors worked in concert with Native American authorities, institutions, and historical experts to provide a wide range of insight and information.
This is the cover to my 3rd book.

Treaties With American Indians I wrote an article and several appendix items for this book.
Clips from a review on Amazon.com: *Starred Review* In the 93 years from 1778 until 1871, there were more than 400 treaties negotiated by Indian agents and government officials. Editor Fixico and more than 150 contributors have crafted a three volume comprehensive tool that will soon become essential for anyone interested in the topic. A resource section with lists of ?Alternate Tribal Names and Spellings,? ?Tribal Name Meanings,? (<---- I wrote this part) Treaties by Tribe,? and ?Common Treaty Names? and a bibliography and comprehensive index are repeated in each volume. This impressive set has a place in any academic library that supports a Native American studies or American history curriculum. It is the most comprehensive source of information on Canadian-Indian treaties and U.S.-Indian treaties. Also available as an e-book.

"The Wacky World of Laws"
It was just released in May 2009.
The Wacky World of Laws. Click on the cover to order a copy or to get more info.

The Wacky World of Laws is a compilation of U.S. and International Laws that are out of the ordinary. With the U.S. churning out 500,000 new laws every year and 2 million regulations annually, this book is the ideal go-to book fro everyone who wants a good laugh at the expense of our legal system. Law so often can be boring! Now with The Wacky World of Laws, you can be the hit of any water cooler conversation, and amaze your friends with precious legal nuggets.

I wrote most of this book. It is my fifth book.
