Stand up for Captive Cherokee Warrior Oso Blanco
In October, Cherokee political prisoner Byron Shane of Chubbuck (also known as Oso Blanco and Yona Unega) was preparing for a federal transfer from USP Lewisburg to FCI Oakdale, Louisiana, Special Management Unit (SMU). Lewisburg staff were well aware of the vital tribal documents included in his property which were packed out intact by Mr. Vey on October 4, 2011.
This transfer was canceled.There was a lot of delay and confusion in getting Oso Blanco’s property returned to him. Property came back from Oakdale, Louisiana and was unpacked on January 13, 2012. Oso Blanco’s address book was torn in two. Vital documents that had been inserted inside and held with a rubber band were missing. Other items were missing. Generally the property was ransacked in a manner well beyond simple negligence or sloppiness but rather, showing clear signs deliberate destruction.
*Missing documents include the following:
*Copy of old original blue card
(Cherokee citizenship enrollment official document)
*New original blue card
(us federal fish and wildlife recognition of a member of a federally recognized tribe allowed to possess eagle feathers for traditional spiritual purposes)
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
This latest example of vindictive abuse from the Bureau of Prisons is part of a long-term pattern of targeted harassment Oso Blanco his refusal to cooperate with political incarceration by the United States as he does not recognize the us as having any legitimate power over him as a sovereign Cherokee.
This latest round of harassment in the form of ransacked and stolen property comes as retribution for his filing on the basis of the US having no plenary powers over indigenous nations as articulated by Steven T Newcomb in his article, “No Plenary Power Over Indian Nations”.
Oso Blanco has asserted his sovereignty as a Cherokee not subject to bogus criminalization so his captors have responded by trying to erase the documentation that proves his Cherokee citizenship.
