On September 7, 2016, Indian Country Today Media Network, the world's largest Indian news source, published an article by Steven Newcomb, a world-renowned indigenous peoples' rights activist. The article is entitled Vicious Dogs and Coercion Unleashed on Original Free Nations
. ICTMN posted one comment on the article. It is my 247 word comment. It reads:

Good article Mr. Newcomb! You wrote: "Franklin (Indians + Rum = Land)". In his autobiography 1706-1757 (Chapter 8) Benjamin Franklin wrote: "If it be the design of Providence to extirpate these Savages in order to make room for cultivators of the Earth, it seems not improbable that rum may be the appointed means." I, Thomas Ivan Dahlheimer, am the co-founder and director of Rum River Name Change Organization. In a book published by the Minnesota Historical Society, a book entitled, Minnesota Geographic Names: Their Origins and Historic Significances, its author Warren Upham wrote, when referring to the Sioux: "Their name of Mille Lacs, Mde Wakan, translated Spirit lake, was given to its river, but was changed by the white man to the most common spirituous liquor brought into the Northwest, rum, which brought misery and ruin to many of the Indians." Upham also wrote: [This] "badly named river", was given its current name by a "punning translation" of the sacred Sioux name for the river. The name Rum is "the white men's perversion of the ancient Sioux name Wakan." In the Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Community's letter of support for the effort to change this river's profane name, and also help protect this sacred Dakota/Sioux site, Jim Anderson wrote: "I believe that renaming the river 'Wakpa Wakan' or 'Spirit River' is a great stride in mending the circle that we share with all four colors of man. The Rum River Name Change Organization's website is located at http://www.towahkon.org/.

On September 3, 2016, Indian Country Today Media Network published an article by Steven Newcomb, a world-renowned indigenous peoples' rights activist. The article is entitled When Pope Francis Revokes the Papal Bull
. ICTMN posted two comments on the article. The first comment is my comment. It reads:

Good article Mr. Newcomb! I believe that Pope Francis can not proclaim to the world that his "papal predecessors were wrong to have authorized a claimed right of domination over the original free nations of the Western Hemisphere, and over original free nations in other areas of the planet, such as Africa, Australia and New Zealand” without also proclaiming that his and his predecessors' God was wrong when He inspired the Bible scripture that is the source of the problem. In your article you are indirectly asking the pope to renounce his church's God. The scripture that I am referring to reads:."I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." (Psalm 2 KJV) I believe that the solution to the problem is to convince people who are now Christians to renounce their evil God and leave their religion.

On August 26, 2016, Indian Country Today Media Network, published an article by Chief Arvol Looking Horse entitled Important Message from Keeper of Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe. Chief Looking Horse is widely recognized as the chief and spiritual leader of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota nations. He is also a world-renowned Indian/Indigenous activist. He is a guest columnist for ICTMN and his prayers have opened numerous sessions of the United Nations. He is working to spiritually unite the global community within a new eco-spirituality movement happening within religions all over the world to save Mother Earth's life supporting ecosystem from its current in crisis and dying predicament, and is doing so, by inspiring the world community to honor and protect Sacred Sites around the world. This article of his has three comments posted on it. My comment is the second comment. It reads:

In the Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Community's letter of support for the effort to change the faulty-English translation name, a profane name, for a Minnesota river [the Rum River] and in doing so help protect this sacred Dakota site, Jim Anderson wrote: "I believe that renaming the river 'Wakpa Wakan' or 'Spirit River' is a great stride in mending the circle that we share with all four colors of man. ..." I, Thomas Ivan Dahlheimer, am the co-founder and director of Rum River Name-Change Organization, Inc.. The movement to change this river's name has local, national and international support. I am also working to bring about a spiritually united global community so that sacred sites will be protected. My website is located at http://www.towahkon.org/Tomssite.html.

A blog post by Steven Welch presents (in part) a picture of me and my Coolove.org article The Hippie New Age Christ And The Second Coming. The article and picture of me is presented about three-fourths of the way through the blog post. The post is mostly about The Farm, the oldest and biggest intentional community. The Farm is a spiritually-based hippie community. The farm's principle founder and spiritual guide Stephen Gaskin is known as the world's most revered hippie icon. Mr. Gaskin was a presidential candidate for the Green Party in 2000. A statement in the blog post reads: "If an evolved ethos and practice of intentional community and cooperation are integral to [saving the world] from humanity, then The Farm's history ought to be required study for those who would pursue it." Gaskin once wrote that The Farm is a demonstration project for a sustainable future - a non-violent eco-friendly cooperative community of pioneers ushering in a new age. I believe that the hope of the world is the adequate promotion of my hippie mission, in conjunction with the promotion of The Farm and mission of Stephen Gaskin.

******************************************

On November 20th there was an Isanti County historical event that honored the native Isanti Oyate of the four tribes of the Eastern Dakota. The event was the unveiling of the Cambridge-Isanti Spirit River Trail intepretive sign. Spirit River is the ancient and current native Dakota name for the badly named "Rum River." The trail was name "Spirit River Trail" and not the "Rum River Tail" because of the movement to change the name of the river, for the purpose of showing due respect for the native Dakota who named this sacred river of theirs "Wakpa Wakan" or "Spirit River."





************************************************

The project director for Isanti County Active Living invited me to attend the unveiling of the Spirit River Trail interpretive sign in Cambridge, Minnesota on November 20th at 1:00. The sign is for a eight mile bike/walk trail that goes from Cambridge to Isanti. The sign presents historical information about the native Isanti/Dakota people who lived at Mille Lacs Lake and used it's outlet river, "Spirit River", (or the "Rum River", a badly named river) to get to their hunting areas. I'll attend the interpretive sign unveiling gathering. The sign is located at the North West corner of 18th St. and Fern St. - near the Cambridge Government Center.

However, his book has been getting bad reviews by historians who know the true Dakota history and they are now exposing how White knowingly tries to deceive his readers into believing the false history.

We have been working together to expose a group of lying Natives and their white allies, who [together] have a biased agenda and who often radically distort Dakota native history to promote their agenda. Their bias lies about Dakota history in Minnesota, promotion of a false creation story and made up sacred site propaganda desecrate the sacred Dakota site at Mille Lacs Lake and hurt my and other activists' work to protect this sacred Dakota site.

Fudally's Barnes and Nobel book review of Bruce White's book Mni Sota Makoce: The Land of the Dakota presents information about this topic. To read Fudally's book review click on Dakota Creation Story. Fudally's book review begins with the title-statement "I do not recommend this book, but I can recommend others as benchmark books for the study of Dakota history." A longer presentation of Fudally's book review can be viewed by clicking Book Review.

On April 21, 2012, I posted an article on my Myspace.com site, titled, Nation movement: restoring sacred Native names to geographic sites .

On April 16, 2012, Arizona's largest state-wide daily newspaper, The Arizona Republic, publish an article by Dennis Wagner, titled, Tribes embrace native names to preserve culture; its subtitle is: Return to original place names preserves cultures, fixes wrongs. The article is about a national movement to preserve Native culture...by replacing derogatory English place names, such as Squaw, Redskins, Savages, etc., with (preferably) their original Native names and also restoring Native names to sacred places/sites. This same article is published on the USA Today newspaper's website. At this website it is titled: ancient echoes: tribes embrace native names .

A few quotes from the article read:

"Indigenous words denote a sense of culture, and their use reflects an evolving trend in Indian country. Still, as tribes attempt to resurrect history and instill pride through native place names, they face a gamut of political, practical and financial obstacles from Alaska to Arizona."

"Basso, a retired University of New Mexico professor who once lived among the Apaches, says he does not see a coordinated movement to rename landmarks in Indian country, but a diffuse trend."

"Manley Begay, a professor of American Indian studies at the University of Arizona, says the phenomenon appears to be catching on nationally, in part because of increased cultural awareness in mainstream society."

Dennis Wagner interviewed me for the article. Mr. Wagner is a reporter at The Arizona Republic and correspondent for USA Today, the widest circulated print newspaper in the United States. The article includes a segment titled, Translation of insults, in it there are three paragraphs about my effort to change several Minnesota place names. "Snake River" and "Rum River" where mentioned.

My effort to change the faulty-translation and insulting place name ["Rum River"] is also an effort to return or restore the orginal sacred Dakota/Lakota/Native name [Wakan] to this river or sacred place/site.

Wagner wrote: "Thomas Dahlheimer, a Minnesota activist, helped promote an unsuccessful bill in his state that would have changed several place names, including 'Snake River' and 'Rum River'."

"Dahlheimer, who is not Native American, says those words are English-language translations of insulting names directed at Lakota tribes by rival Indian groups. In fact, he adds, the 'Sioux' name is a foreign misnomer for Lakota people."

"Dahlheimer says the legislation was stymied in part by Indian groups: "They were concerned about getting people mad at them in the dominant culture, and not going to the casinos."

My website for promoting the restoration of Native names to geographic sacred sites is located at: http://www.towahkon.org/RestoreNativeNames.html .

I recently spoke with a prominent member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. He is campaigning to become the Chief Executive of the Mille Lacs Band. We talked about his campaign. He said he might state in an upcoming Mille Lacs Messenger column about his political platform... that he wants the Mille Lacs Band to support the effort to restore the sacred Dakota name [Wakan] to the "Rum River".

We are working to initiate a movement to bring the Mille Lacs Band and the Dakota together in the Mille Lacs area... to help heal the hurtful wounds of past Dakota-Ojibwe conflicts, mostly caused by the people of European descent who invaded their sacred homelands, desecrated them, and then took possession of them. And while doing so, forced the Dakota and Ojibwe to live in a subjugated state of existence. A state of existence that they remain in to this present day.

____________________________________________________________________
The planned for meeting (news, presented below) to discuss the draft reconciliation resolution that Minnesota Rep. Dean Urdahl introduced to the House of Representatives was cancelled after he decided to have the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council coordinate the meeting of Minnesota tribes. The meeting took place and Urdahl has informed the tribal councils, Rep. Gene Pelowski, Sen. Sharon Erickson Ropes, John Borman and I that we have until April 15th to send him suggestions.

____________________________________________________________________

Several months ago, I met with Rep. Dean Urdahl and a few Minnesota Dakota tribal leaders. During the meeting I was asked to write and send a draft Minnesota Indian reconciliation resolution to Urdahl. I then wrote and sent Urdahl my draft reconciliation resolution. Urdahl used some of my material, some of his own wording, and some material from other states' resolutions to create a draft Minnesota reconciliation resolution. He then introduced it to the Minnesota legislature.

In the near future, Urdahl, a few tribal leaders and I will be meeting to make some changes to the draft reconiliation legislation. SKMBT_75010030813340.pdf (92KB)

During the December 1st Anoka City Council Meeting, Phil Rice, a member of the Anoka City Council and mayor elect, spoke about how the Rum River received its current profane name and suggested that the council use the Dakota Indians' sacred name for the river [Wakan], translated to mean Spirit or Great Spirit, when giving the Rum River Nature Area, recently designated as a new city park, an official city park name. The park was given the name Anoka Nature Preserve. The council chose not to use the propane Rum River name when giving the park a name. And in Minnesota's best-selling state-wide newspaper, the Star Tribune, there is an article that presents the following statement: "The council decided to mention Wakan in a large interpretive sign bearing the park's new name and explaining park origins. American Indians have said early white setters, knowing the Indian name meant "spirit," used the Rum River name as a derogatory allusion to alcohol spirits."

Tony Castanha -a Jibaro activist with indigenous roots in Puerto Rico, who is the project
director of the indigenous peoples delegation that went to the Vatican in 2000 calling for
the revocation of the 1493 papal bull "Inter Caetera", recently contacted me to give his
approval and support for my indigenous peoples rights activist initiative associated with
my youtube video wherein I tore up a copy of the Papal Bull "Inter Caetera" in front of
Anoka, Minnesota's Roman Catholic Church, the Church of Saint Stephen. This
youtube video is located at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKxdPsrv_vY

The Papal Bull "Inter Caetera" is a decree that was issued by Pope Alexander IV to
Christopher Columbus by the Roman Catholic Church on his second voyage to the
Americas along with the 1494 Treaty of Tordesillas, which sought to establish Christian
dominionover the world and called for the subjugation of non-Christian peoples and
seizure of their lands. The decree, which granted rights to land throughout North and
South America to Spain, under girds much of international law today, as well as the
Doctrine of Discovery that is enshrined in US federal Indian policy.

for publication on his MultiCultural Pavilion website's MCP digest e-mail forum, he
posted my article. And then, after the Program Manager for the National MultiCultural
Institute [Amy Kasi] read my article on the MCP digest she contacted me and asked if I
would allow the National Multicultural Institute (NMCI) to post a quoted tidbit of mine
and link to my Indigenous Peoples Literature article Independent Indigenous
Sovereign Nations
in the National MultiCultural Institute's upcoming October
newsletter. I said YES, and it was recently post on the NMCI's October newsletter
. It is posted on the newsletter's SPOTLIGHT display.

When requesting permission to display my article in the NMCI newsletter, Amy Kasi wrote: "I think it would be a valuable resource for anyone interested in not only
indigenous peoples but also the history of the US and human rights violations in
the US.

NMCI sends out monthly newsletters to a network of almost 3500 members.

In response to an August 28th e-mail message that I sent Gene Amondson, the National Prohibition Party nominee for the 2008 campaign and chairman of the Prohibition National Committee since 2005, I received a call from Mr. Amondson. We talked about the work we are doing to bring back prohibition as well as establish dry states, counties, cities etc. Amondson asked me to call him whenever I would like to. He is an international speaker and he has been on the John Stewart show once and on the Oprah show twice.

During our conversation I told him that during prohibition there was a national movement to change the name of the Rum River by those who saw the addictive and harmful nature of rum upon society. The addictive and harmful nature of rum upon society is another reason why I initiated and am spearheading the Rum River name-change movement.

On June 28th Indigenous Peoples Literature posted my articleU.S. and states should establish Truth and Reconciliation Commissions

On June 17th Indigenous Peoples Literature posted my article Proposals to heal the genocidal wounds of indigenous peoples. In the article, I quoted a statement made by Louis Stanley Schoen in an article of his that was published in Minnesota's best-selling state-wide daily newspaper, the Star Tribune.

"What if a public commission were to begin to examine the American (and European) history of white supremacy -- and, here, how that doctrine shaped the formation of Minnesota and its public and private institutions? What if such a commission learned how to offer leadership and resources to dismantle this evil doctrine?"

After this quote, I wrote in my June 17th Indigenous Peoples Literature (IPL) article that the evil doctrine that needs to be dismantled is the fifteenth century Papal Bull Inter Caetera. Steve Newcomb, a writer for Indian Country Today (the world's leading American Indian news source) and an internationally renowned leader of the movement to dismantle the Inter Caetera Papal Bull, contacted me (reply e-mail) and wrote: "Thanks Thomas, Good Work!"

When a Minnesota public commission is established many of Newcomb's ICT articles should be used as a source "to examine the American (and European) history of white supremacy". A list of Newcomb's ICT articles and links to them can be viewed by clicking Steve Newcombs ICT articles

In my IPL article I also wrote: "I recently sent a proposal to Griff Wigley, the blogger of the Minnesota Sesquicentennial Advisory Committee for Native American Partnering blog and the committee's project leader, wherein I asked Mr. Wigley to post Louis Stanley Schoen's article on the blog. And do so, because it is a good article and also because I could then, in response to Schoen's posted article, post a comment with a link to a petition of mine where tribal leaders and prominent non-Indian Minnesotans could add their names and comments to this petition. A petition that asks the Governor of Minnesota [Tim Pawlenty] to establish a public commission to accomplish the goals that Schoen proposed in his Star Tribune article."

Mr. Wigley not only posted a link to Louis Stanley Schoen's article he also presented a new addition to the blog, titled: Does Minnesota need its own Truth and Reconciliation Commission? This new addition to the blog includes a number of link to associated articles and quotes from these articles. A link to my article that was published in Winona, Minnesota's daily newspaper [Winona Daily News] was one of the links included in the blog's new addition.

The Minnesota Sesquicentennial Commission has a web site with a homepage link to a blog site that is guided by Sesquicentennial Advisory Committee for Native American Partnering (SACNAP).

A statement on the MN Sesquicentennial Commission's site:

"The Minnesota Sesquicentennial Commission is committed to raising awareness and educating Minnesotans about our past, recognizing the indigenous people of Minnesota, and learning from complex and diverse cultures that have come and continue to come to Minnesota."

Two more statements on the MN Sesquicentennial Comission's we site:

"As StarTribune columnist Lori Sturdevant wrote in October, 2007, 'There's likely no better opportunity for some serious truth-telling about early Minnesota than the yearlong history lesson this state is about to commence.'"

"The lesson should reveal this truth: Minnesotans share a place, a climate, a government. But they do not share one culture. They never did. And this state's success -- maybe now more than ever -- depends on its people's ability to respect cultures other than their own and peacefully resolve conflict between cultures."

The staff of the Minnesota Sesquicentennial Commission has a page on their web site titled May is American Indian Month in Minnesota. The statement is intended to "...bear witness to the tragic side of Minnesota Statehood in 1858 and acknowledge the pain, loss and suffering of the Native American culture in Minnesota."

The Sesquicentennial Commission and its volunteers will strive to increase pride in Minnesota by:

(2.) Raising awareness and educating Minnesotans by telling the stories of our past, recognizing the indigenous people of Minnesota, learning from them…."

The public is asked to get involved. Griff Wigley, Project Leader, Sesquicentennial Advisory Committee for Native American Partnering posted a contributing comment of Tom's. It can be viewed and read by clicking http://nativeamericanminn150.org/archives/198#comment-5
