Oklahoma: American Indians Protest 'Take Back our Country Tour'

June 26, 2010 – Oklahoma City, OK – American Indians to Protest the “Take Back Our Country Tour”
By Brenda Golden

OKLAHOMA CITY -- John Rich (Big & Rich) and Holden Productions are holding the Taking Our Country Back Tour today Saturday, June 26 at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City. The rally and concert will feature conservative talk radio and television host Glenn Beck and former Senior Advisor to the President Karl Rove, plus country artist John Rich performing in concert.

While their mission states they are attempting to unify and inspire all Americans to raise their collective voice. They have left out one important part of that picture – this land was not theirs in the first place. We the American Indians never willingly gave up this land called the United States of America. Witness the fact that there are over 500 broken treaties in which promises were made by the United States in exchange for land. In almost every instance, the federal government promised, “as long as the grass will grow and the rivers flow.”

Since the US Government broke the treaties; that makes the bargain broken and we American Indians consider them null and void.

You cannot take something back that is not yours. American Indians are the ONLY true indigenous people of this land, everyone else are immigrants.

A group of American Indians will be outside the Ford Center on the north side sidewalk in solidarity at 12:00 PM today, Saturday, June 26, 2010 in protest. Oklahoma is our land, this country is our land, taking back America is our line not theirs.
