The Selling of Native American Scalps on ebay

December 1st, 2007 by admin

Just so everyone knows. The auction house listed below was in the process of auctioning off Sioux Scalps on ebay today. Granted they are off the market now with this shameless attempt to sell human body parts. But the fact remains they may still be in possession of these items. And you have the right to know who these creatures are. Wonder if they have and human skin lamp shades from Hitler’s era of madness?

At the very least we should let our opinion be known to these people. Just in case the Feds are not aware of this loathsome act we should remind them that we also know. Just in case they forgot to enforce the law.

Title 18, United States Code, Section 1170 – Illegal Trafficking in Native American Human Remains and Cultural Items: Prohibits the sale of the human remains or cultural artifacts of Native Americans without the right of possession of those items in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.

We have the power to make a difference.

What is even worse is that this person is ndn and is exploiting his own people.We are all one people so let your voices and complaints about this be heard and directed at the right people.As long a we sit back and say nothing this will continue to happen.Take the time & let the feds know we know what’s going on & let this guy know also.Keep checking back and let them know you are continuing to watch them and want to be informed on what they’re doing about this person still breaking the law.Copy & Paste the

  2. I once heard from old Roy Napish of Eagle Lake First Nation in Northern Ontario, Canada that he has personally seen north Americas first bible. It is covered in the skin of a First Nations Human Being and it is in the Smithsonian Institute, but locked away and not in the view of the public. As I understand it, It can be viewed by private appointment only.
    Yeah, I gotta add my two Euro Cents in on this blog about scalps, scalping, Et Cetera, the main thing, don’t worry about gettin scalped by us Cree guys, we stopped doing that to you europeans a long time ago…we realized that you guys Go Bald Anyways! *Silly Grin*

  3. Accordind to the number i called it was horse hair. I asked y they felt it was ok before it was brought to light. And they said of course not.Are they liars perhaps. I dont see why ebay cant be sued for putting it out their as a Lakota scalp. I mean hello how can that of made it that far people r crazy n need to be held accountable for their actions.
