Edward Snowden, NSA, and First Nations Peoples

Written By FaithRMichaels
Everyone in the world who has any access to any sort of news knows about Edward Snowden.
In my book this man is a hero.

The First Nations Peoples Of the North American Continent have long been seen as a threat to the established Governments of North American countries.

These Tribal Nations have endured and survived every attempt at genocide.
Movements Like Idle No More In Canada.... and many other Gatherings  among Tribal Community Elders recently have not gone unnoticed by the NSA.
The Elder gatherings were  to establish unity among the tribes and address Tribal issues like suicides, drug abuse, PTSD, healing ,housing etc......These gatherings for unity  has the Paranoia button of the NSA working overtime.
Historically these gatherings were met with vicious force by the U.S. government.
The Wounded Knee Massacre and other similar slaughters by the government of the times leaves it very clear they were bent on total extinction. Their goal was to exterminate any and all future attempts at unity.
They were the insane psychosis acts of guilty consciousness.
After all wouldn't the tribes do to them as they were done to?
Noooo but that's another story.

 Now comes Edward Snowden...
and  what he had to say regarding the twisted paranoid sociopathic mindsets  (my words not Snowdens) of those "in charge" of the world; Has changed the world.
Once again Native Americans  and all First Peoples Nations are being focused upon through the sociopathic lens of the NSA.

The government says the massive, indiscriminate sweeps of citizens’ phone calls, emails and other information are to help stop terrorist attacks before they happen, but consider how easily it linked Indians and terrorists recently. In 2011, the Obama administration casually used Geronimo, one of the most revered figures in American Indian history, as the codename for Osama bin Laden and the operation to assassinate him. That same year, government prosecutors compared the Seminoles to terrorists and cited Andrew Jackson’s genocidal wars against the Florida Indians as a precedent for the prosecution of Al Qaeda suspects.  During the 2012 presidential campaign, presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich also conjured up Jackson as a model for the way the U.S. should approach its “enemies” today. “Kill them!” he said.
Is there reason to fear that the government would use information it seizes from phone calls and the Internet to launch “counter-terrorist” actions against sacred land advocates  or indigenous activists involved in the struggle for land rights or protesting against devastating proposals like the  controversial Keystone XL pipeline or other extraction projects? According to Revenue Watch, American Indian lands include an estimated 30 percent of the nation’s coal reserves west of
