     "I did not know how much was ended. When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as I saw them with eyes still young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. A people's dream died there. It was a beautiful dream... "The nation's hoop is broken and scattered. There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead."

     -- Black Elk, Oglala Holy Man ...on the aftermath of the Massacre at Wounded Knee

Economic Development by Invasion of Indigenous Nations, Chittagong, West Paupua - "Third World colonialism has replaced European colonialism as the principal global force that tries to subjugate indigenous peoples and their ancient nations.  However, in many of these states, sovereignty and allegiance are only obtained by the use of state army and security forces against nations of peoples (ironically called citizens by the states) who seek to maintain their own distinct and sovereign identities, governments and territories."

Bartolomé de las Casas story of American genocide of indigenous by Spanish
Bartolomé de Las Casas, "Of the Island of Hispaniola" (1542) "This extract from Las Casas’s Very Brief Account of the Destruction of the Indies describes the island of Hispaniola (present-day Dominican Republic and Haiti), the island Columbus described in his letter to Luis de Sant’ Angel. Las Casas wrote this gory and explosive account in 1542 to be read at a forum on Spanish colonization called by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. Widely translated, this account gave rise to a flood of anti-Spanish and anti-Catholic propaganda throughout Europe deriding the Spanish"

Now, as we approach the 21st century, new forms of enclosures and notions of private property are emerging - from water rights, biodiversity, and 'gene pools' of plants and humans, to the demands of multinational corporations for free access to more land for investment and exploitation."
