This is an incredible article! Wow!
Conspiracy and U.S. Indian Policy

Steven Newcomb (Shawnee/Lenape)

On February 27, 1803, President Thomas Jefferson wrote a private letter to William Henry Harrison, who was then the Governor of the Indiana Territory. Both men were part of the elite power structure of the United States, and the letter was received by Harrison “privately,” outside of the official channels of government. Jefferson made note of this fact: “. . . this letter being unofficial and private,” he wrote,
“I may with safety give you a more extensive view of our [U.S.] policy respecting the Indians.”
Why was the U.S. president communicating with the territorial governor in such a manner? Jefferson explained that he was writing privately to Harrison so that he could “better comprehend” information that would be sent to him as governor “through the official channel.” With the additional information communicated privately, Harrison would then be able to conduct himself in keeping with that information, in cases and on occasions when, as Jefferson put it, “you are obliged to act without instruction.” The private letter was, in other words, a form of code.

A plan of action to be carried out towards the Indians was being hatched and communicated in secret behind the official scene of government. Stated in simple and direct terms, Jefferson and Harrison were conspiring together by making secretive long range plans for the future demise of our Native ancestors and the acquisition of millions of acres of land and valuable “resources” within the traditional territories of our original nations.

Jefferson said that as a result of the game animals being either scared off or killed off, our ancestors would have great difficulty feeding themselves by hunting.
“[W]e wish to draw them to agriculture and spinning and weaving,”
wrote Jefferson.
“When they withdraw themselves to the culture [cultivation] of a small piece of land, they will perceive how useless to them are their extensive forests.” As a result, they will part with their forests “in exchange for necessaries for their farms and families.”
Jefferson continued:
“To promote this disposition [willingness] to exchange lands, which they have to spare and we want, for necessaries, which we have to spare and they want, we shall push our trading houses, and be glad to see the good and influential individuals among them run in debt.”
Why?
“[...B]ecause we observe that when these debts get beyond what the individuals can pay, they become willing to lop them off by a cession of lands.”
“In this way our settlements will gradually circumscribe [surround] and approach the Indians, and they will in time either incorporate with us as citizens of the United States, or remove beyond the Mississippi.”
If they incorporate as citizens this will certainly result in
“the termination of their history [meaning, their existence] most happy for themselves; but in the whole course of this, it is essential to cultivate their love.”
Is it a “conspiracy theory” to realize that that kind of diabolical planning was designed and carried out by the most elite, powerful, and wealthy sectors of U.S. society? Of course not. Jefferson’s letter is tangible evidence of the fact that such secret conspiratorial plans have been laid and carried out against our nations and peoples throughout the entire history of the United States. A massive amount of wealth and treasure, and more than billions of acres of land, have been accumulated by the United States on the basis of the suffering, misery, and death of our Native ancestors and on the basis of the genocide committed against our nations and peoples.

Jefferson concluded his letter to Harrison by stating:
“[W]e presume that our strength and their weakness is now so visible [to them] that they must see we have only to shut our hand to crush them.”
That’s an acknowledgment on Jefferson’s part that he considered it permissible to use threat, duress, and coercion against our ancestors as techniques of persuasion. He then says that
“all our liberalities to them proceed from motives of pure humanity only.”
In other words, we will destroy their accustomed food supplies, while surrounding them and restricting them to small parcels of land, then run them into debt, and use that debt as leverage to get them to part with their forests and millions of acres of their lands. By means of these techniques the U.S. will destroy Native nations by assimilating Native people into the body politic of the Unites States, or by ejecting them from their lands and moving them West of the Mississippi. But all these destructive things would be done while “cultivating their love,” and out of motives of “pure humanity.”
