Ending Physical and Sexual Abuse in our Indigenous Communities

 When our tribes and nations were still spiritually and socially strong and fully understood the devastating impact of sexual and physical abuse, abusers of women and children were dealt with very severely, including castration, death, or banishment.

As an example, my great-great grandfather, Hinhan Wicasa, Owl Man, was told in a vision he received on Medicine Butte, that he would kill four men, justifiably,  in his role as Head Chief and Leader of the Holy Man’s Society of the Magaska Ptesan Wicoti (White Swan People), Ihanktonwan Dakota.  

Two of the men Hinhan Wicasa killed were husbands who abused their wives. One wife was Hinhan Wicasa’s sister and the other his daughter.  Part of the fulfillment of this vision is described in Singing for a Spirit written by my uncle, Vine Deloria Jr.

Hinhan Wicasa was informed that his son-in-law had abused his daughter again, after his third warning not to this anymore.

Without saying a word Hinhan Wicasa picked up his rifle, mounted his horse and rode to his son-in-laws teepee. Hinhan Wicasa walked inside and said to his son-in-law, “I warned you three times not to abuse my daughter and now I am going to kill you.”  With that Hinhan Wicasa pulled the trigger of his rifle and dispatched his son-in-law to the spiritual world. A similar event occurred with a brother-in-law who repeatedly abused Hinhan Wicasa’s sister.

After both killings, as was his responsibility as a Hereditary Chief and Spiritual Leader, he went to a hill overlooking his camp circle. As was tribal protocol, Hinhan Wicasa waited there all night, unarmed, for any of the deceased relatives, who believed that he had killed their relatives unjustly, so they kill him in return if they chose.

On both occasions Hinhan Wicasa returned to the Tipi Circle at sunrise, with great sorrow, but thanksgiving to the Creator, for being able to protect his relatives, for a little longer, from the great spiritual sickness that was coming that was foretold in the sacred vision that was given to him as a young boy. He understood that he needed be strong, as the destined Spiritual Wintertime to come would almost overwhelm our Indigenous peoples, until the coming of the Fourth Generation. 

One way or the other, for the sake of us, our beloved children and our future generations, sexual abuse in all its forms, needs to be faced, confronted, healed, forgiven, when possible, and completely eliminated from our Sacred Lands forever.

Thanks for that Kody, how interesting I will definitely be checking out Bruce Lipton's video and read your work.

There is hope for those hurt by physical or sexual abuse, or harmful relationships. There is a phenomenon called Telegony. It is when great mental speed and bodily speed combine to program information into the DNA. This can cause things like phantom limb pains, when a person loses an arm or leg and they feel pain and feeling in the space where the arm used to be. This is caused by the great mental and bodily speed combined which programs information into the DNA. Similarly, there is sexual Telegony, and is what the word is most known for. Scientists of the past understood Telegony a little, and the ancient cultures of the world definitely knew about Telegony. The ancient Vedruss culture of Russia even developed a cure for it. Later scientists discredited Telegony, latching onto the discovery that the DNA in our sperm or eggs changes when they come into contact with each other. The scientists then, no doubt pandering to a higher order in their organization, declared that the DNA of our child-giving cells only change their program when they come together. New discoveries prove that the DNA of our life-giving cells really does change within the body.

First, there is the research of cell biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton. He has discovered when and where extreme mental and emotional moments programs information into our DNA. Here is a video of one of his talks in which he describes it:

And finally, a group of researchers have discovered that tumor cells in mice deliver information directly into the sperm DNA. They did this by injecting a tracer into the tumor information:


There is a cure to Telegony, and I speak about it in my writing which is inspired by Anastasia and The Ringing Cedars of Russia documentary series. She describes how a wise-man at the wise-man academy of Arkaim in southern Russia (which is an archeological site today), discovered a cure to telegony around 2,500 years ago. This was at a time when bandits from abroad were raping their women, and the other men did not want to give them children because the telegony would be passed down. Telegony from past relationships are passed down to our future children.

Here is my writing. I am sorry it is so long, but there is good information in here, and I eventually mention the cure to Telegony. Joy and health to your thoughts, and may good days follow you! (there are also poems at the very end of the writing. Enjoy!)

Brother Phil, it took me some time to read this because I thought I knew every thing there was to know about abuse having suffered it as a child. Then during a marriage my two children where abused by my husband who was not there father.These sessions of abuse were sexual or violent depending on the child. Later I worked within a charity where I met a teenager who was dreading Christmas because her brother and brother-in-law both sexually abused her. Then later still, working in a women's I talked to a woman who was abused by her Grandfather. Living through these abuses takes the mind and heart into strange twisted places of low self esteem and fear that can take years to overcome. Some never do and become damaged forever.

it is often said here that sex abusers should be castrated or killed, but being a compassionate democracy,for so we would like to think of ourselves, we set about  'curing' the perpetrator. Sadly, this often lets abusers back into society to offend again and to evade capture some kill the only witness, the child.

I fully take into account that this subject is not a simple one and can not be covered in this short item. However you have identified one thing that is a world wide problem and that is the growth of a mindset that unleashes this damage on our women or creative energy and our children the future of all people. It is like disabling humanity to satisfy an obsessive sick hatred of the norm. It is now  urgent that this horror be addressed for what it really is. Yet I am sensible to the fact that damaged people and stressed societies often bring forth such evil. However I see no easy cure or way of reducing this problem without zero-tolerance and the death penalty.

 What can I say, I to have first hand knowledge of this form of abuse. I watched my step father abuse my step mother horribly. Not just physically but mentally and spiritually. I think the later being so much more terible as you can't see the wounds, at least not then and now as she's an Old Woman, they are starting to show in the bitterness she feels towards all things. Pray for her healing as she is need of all our prayers.

 Thanks to Creator as well for showing me one way to beat this disease, breaking the cycle of abuse. No I'm not anywhere near perfect but have relised what I was doing when it came to mind and changed it. Now I have the finest gift a man can wish for , a child who loves him and a grandson to teach.

Aho and wado beloved sons and I chose banishment for our abuser...just recently....after our ex-abuser battered his girlfriend in June she came forward and helped us turn the light on so the monster cannot hide...she sent his warrant information and how dangerous he is to his Tribal Police, the health clinics and other relatives. ...I feel it is extremely important to be up front and open about abuse of any kind...we cannot heal if we do not tend our wounds...I learn about life from the beautiful physical world around me.....I have had to travel a very bumpy road to be able to talk about our past abuse simply because I didn't realize how much I didn't say when I was in that relationship until recent visions...please call me Dekshi...I have much more to talk  with you about when you get a chance..i know how busy you are....:)

Aho Brother, good words, strong.

Thank you for this story.

Comment by Gail Hickey on January 17, 2012 at 1:26pm

Thank you so much for writing on this topic: it is very timely to issues occurring in Australia, in the Northern Territory where the Australian Government has imposed very harsh measures on the communities. Many questions have been raised as to the truth of the situation, & are discussed in the documentary available at the following site:

I encourage you and your readers to explore & be aware of how other Indigenous communities are suffering under misguided, un-informed measures imposed upon them, rather than seeking solutions from the Elders and communities themselves.
