Wisconsin Thanksgiving lesson teaches hate and racism

Thanksgiving lesson teaches hate and racism

KAREN SCHROEDER



Karen Schroeder is the President of Advocates for Academic Freedom, a member of the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board, an experienced public school teacher with an MA, and an educational consultant.


MADISON, Wis. – A Thanksgiving lesson that teaches hate, fear, and racism rather than collaboration, diversity, and respect for truth has been prepared for students in Wisconsin K-5 classrooms.

According to the Department of Public Instruction website, this approach was first recommended in 1977.

This Thanksgiving lesson is based upon a “likelihood, the ‘First Thanksgiving’ in colonial America was proclaimed in 1637 to commemorate the murder of approximately 700 Pequot Indians at Mystic Fort.” This disgusting hypothesis is based on the admitted supposition of the late Professor William Newell of the University of Connecticut.

Actual documents from the 17th century include Edward Winslow’s writings in Mourt’s Relation and William Bradford’s account in Of Plymouth Plantation which describe the Thanksgiving in 1621 where settlers and Native Americans shared food and gave thanks

I am adding this long article thinking it is interesting and historically significant to tell the story of ‘The Chief’ John Kuhn–in his own words. This article, written by him, for THE ETUDE MAGAZINE-Presser's Musical Magazine-, for the October 1920 issue, which featured ‘Music of the American Indian,’ provides an insight on his life, his feelings, and his musical experiences. Of course, after his Sousa Band experience, Kuhn went on and performed with the Isham Jones Orchestra.
I hope you enjoy it. Regards- mark jonestuba@juno.com

INDIAN MUSICIANS IN THE MODERN WORLD
“Red Cloud,” Famous Indian performer on the
Sousaphone, Tells of One of the Most Remarkable Careers
in All Musical History”

Image

[EDITOR’S NOTE–The following story is given direct to THE ETUDE from “Red Cloud”–Mr. John Koon {sp.}–the giant Sousaphone player of the Sousa band who was born in the heart of a Sioux Reservation, and is now acknowledged one of the very finest living performers upon his instrument. The Sousaphone was named thus by the manufacturer in honor of the inventor, Mr. Sousa, and is now used in bands in all parts of the world. It is a form of the large bass helicon tuba (bombardon) so adjusted, as Mr. Sousa puts it, that its tones are not heard a half mile down the street before the band comes in sight. It affords also a wonderful refinement of the effects of its predecessor in concert bands.]

“When my mother carried me around on her back as a little papoose, probably the very last thing that my tribesmen ever dreamed of was that some day I should play in the greatest of modern bands. Certainly, there was nothing in my childhood surroundings that suggested it. I was born on the Fort Peck reservation. There were 32,000 Sioux on the reservation then and 9,000 head of cattle, at Poplar, Montana. My earliest recollection of hearing music is hearing my own mother sing. She sang at all times, especially when she was working, and I loved to listen to her and to the other women singing in the old, old songs of the tribe. Many of the songs had probably gone back for centuries, and, although they had been carried down without any means of notation, it is hardly likely that they ever varied very much in any tribe. The Indian has a respect for music that in some instances rises to a superstition. I doubt whether any of the white races have an understanding of what this deep seated love really is. The instruments are virtually limited to drums, flutes, and rattles, therefore, most of the music is singing, largely withuot words but to special syllables.
“Can any one realize the spirit of independence of the Indian and why for so many years he looked upon the Indian Bureau, at Washington, often represented by old worn out, good for nothing political henchmen, as a curse to the race? Many of these men kept their positions by causing strife and the Indian naturally detested them. The interminable blunders in trying to curb the race instead of permitting it to develop along natural lines in the rightful way can never be forgiven. Now, they realize (at least some of them do) that the Indian has within his own people men capable of managing affairs; but none of these men, owing to political intrigue, has ever been permitted to participate to the extent that the Indian is relieved of the idea that he is a subject or a ward. It relieves me to say this, as I have wanted ‘to get it out of my system’ for a long while.
“When I was a child the Government realized that certain dances and ceremonial songs might incite the tribes to warfare and therefore prohibited them. For this reason I never took part in a War Dance, although when I was a very little boy I remember two battles with the soldiers. It seems a kind of a dream now. My mother took me out on a butte where we could overlook the field and yet not be seen. I saw the braves go forth on horseback with their brilliant costumes and their warpaint and I saw in the far distance the Government troops come out in their dark blue uniforms. Then the firing commenced and I saw the braves topple off their horses and knew that many of them would never come back. It appears that our tribe was to be unjustly disciplined for horse stealing for which it was not responsible.
“The Indian, when he has the fair balance of power, will not sit down before injustice and he becomes a terrible fighter. This time, for once, the Indians were victorious and the soldiers had to retreat. The Indian does not want to be made to do things. For instance, he does not want to be made to cut his long, shiny, black braids of hair because he thinks they are much more beautiful than short hair. Again the ceremony of cutting the hair is one associated with death, mourning, and humiliation. Cutting his hair breaks his spirit. The Government knew this and forced him to cut it as it forced him to live in log houses instead of tepees and wear clothes often entirely unsuited to his life. Consequently tuberculosis stepped in and the American Indian died in the thousands. Do you wonder that he fought superior numbers against such wicked stupidity?
“The process of ‘civilization’ with the Indians must of necessity be a gradual one. When I was a little boy I was sent to Fort Shaw to be educated, then I went to the Haskell Institute where I studied modern music, later I went to Carlisle where I was the so-called star Fullback on the famous Carlisle foot-ball team for three years. Meanwhile I had always been interested in music and as my instrument was the tuba, I played it whenever I had the chance. At that time Buffalo Bill (Col. Wm. F. Cody), who understood Indians and treated them right, engaged me as a Broncho-Buster with his great show. I toured with this show through Europe, giving the crowned heads and the citizens an idea of Indian strength and endurance in what is really a very dangerous business even when one is supposed to ‘know how.’ We were kept on the go so much that I heard very little good music except that played by our own band, which was a very good one.
“When I came back to America I became more and more interested in music and for a time played in the Dennison Wheelock Indian Band and finally achieved my great ambition to play in the Sousa Band. Mr. Sousa must have an inborn feeling for the Indian because in his famous suite Dwellers in the Western World he has an Indian section which, although composed of themes which are entirely original with him, have all the characteristics of Indian music quite as though some departed Indian spirit had inspired him. Of course, the piece is a great hit every time we play it. Lieut. Sousa has an uncanny way of seeing through things and getting others to understand and execute the effects he wants. There has never been a bandmaster like him in going so far out of the way to discover hidden beauties and new effects.
“The new interest in Indian music does not surprise me. To me, its charm has been known for years. What could be more romantic that to see on horseback a brave silhouetted against the sinking sun singing a love song to some sweetheart hiding behind the door of a tepee. Once, I went out on my horse and I heard an indescribably beautiful melody played upon the Indian flute. Few people know that horses are very sensitive to music. They will hear it in the far distance and seem to be fascinated by it. My horse stopped and I went to investigate. There, high up on a cottonwood tree was a brave playing a love song to his departed love. The music seemed to reach far over the valley and it was difficult to tell whence it came. The name of the song was Cante-ma-cija and it meant “My heart is sad and sore for longing.” It was a picture there in the solitude that few could forget.
“Many composers have caught the Indian idea in modern music by the utilization of real Indian themes. When I hear such music and know that it is real and not a parody, all of the old fire comes back in me. It is the “call of the wild.” When we play such a piece as the American Indian Rhapsody by Preston Ware Orem, founded on real Indian themes, given him by Thurlow Lieurance, a piece that has been one of the big numbers with the band for a whole year, I feel as though I could jump right up and “holler.” I heard some of those same themes when I was a little papoose and they are in my blood and always will be in the blood of my children as long as the race lasts.”
Great stuff !!!

Chris, forgive me, but I don't have time to read your two long posts. I did, however, read Shrink's copy of the Rush article.

Rush takes legitimate observations and Bradford's words and comes to the wrong conclusions, because he's not taking a lot of the context into account. Bradford didn't move away from the communal system until 1623; they were generating plenty of food while they still had it. (If they weren't, they wouldn't have had a big feast.) He moved the colony away from the communal system because the people were having trouble trying to get to one standard way of doing things; remember, in 1620 England, dialects and cultures and methods varied much more wildly even from one village to the next than they do now, because people usually didn't ever move. Anyway, people were bitching and so he divided it up; it wasn't for production purposes or because the 'communism' was failing.

Also, life expectancy back then was lower mostly because infant mortality was off the charts. By the time someone survived to 18, they could live almost as long as we do now.

Also also, that George Washington quote is pulled straight out of Rush's ass.

Now, all of that said, to give credit, Rush's depiction of England at the time isn't far off. It was not a very happy place, especially if you wanted to worship in a way other than how the Powers That Be wanted you to worship. That's why they left.

And finally, yes, there is one other truism in your post, Shrink: I am, in fact, a descendant of some of those pinko commie deadbeat socialists, specifically the Whites, the Allertons, and the Brewsters, the latter of which had a daughter whose first name was 'Fear', so named to commemorate the days when the church body huddled in someone's basement to have their services, terrified that the soldiers will kick their door in and drag them all away. I just threw that in.

I see no contradiction in acknowledging that this country has had some shameful moments in its history. While still having pride in it. This country does have entirely too many people who think they are owed something~

Let's be honest here, your charge of racism only really matters today if you are in a voting block that is significant to the Democrat party.

Pequot indians don't really move the needle at the ballot box.

As for minority status, I guess so numerically. But status is related to power. If the first Thanksiving was truly a celebration of a mass slaughter than the white folks weren't minorities at all in terms of power eh?
Yeah, um, the first pilgrims came very close to starving out completely when then native people came by with food handouts. That was how Thanksgivign got its start. Kinda weird that you had to learn that here instead of from a history book.

Heck no, you're one of the most courageous men on the globe for taking such tough stands. Anyone who takes on the KKK is a man who knows what he believes no matter how popular it is.
