I am Samuelin MarTinez, the son of an American Holocaust Survivor.
In my first book, AmeriCaCa, I described the Sounds of Silenced Survivors of an American Holocaust. My mother told me all of her life with me, "I am a Survivor!"
Her Oral Historian account, accounts for making me the son of a Holocaust Survivor, born at the time of Corporate America’s second campaign to “Kill the Indian save the man” in the 1950s.
Corporate American Congress passed the second wave of genocidal Relocation Acts to uproot native people from ancient lands and force native children from native families into isolation at corporate schools; with the intention to "Kill the Indian save the child." Churches first made military contracts in the 1800s to do this religiously in Boarding Schools, then the campaign went to public schools in the 1900s.
Corporate America's investment to "Kill the Indian..." has made trillions of profits from the related "Indian Wars." After reading my second book, Spilling the Beans , you may also conclude that this war has not ended. This book is an indictment, accusing Corporate America of killing my mother.
Corporate Americans continue to inherit blood-gold on blood-land and ignore our existence as sovereign nations, even denying there ever was a holocaust. Corporate malls are still built on our graveyards and Corporate Americans ignore our protests. Corporate Americans continue public displays of racist genocidal images in their corporate sports industry and ignore our pain. Corporate Americans continue to teach corporate American History, ignoring our voice and International - Constitutional Laws by violating our Treaty Rights. Where is the Peace with Justice that should follows war? Generational Trauma is our inheritance, I call Dislocados; we must heal like our children's lives depend on US. In my third book, The Indian Dream - Healing Post Generational Trauma, I describe how we use a Traditional Healing Praxis to heal, despite AmeriCaCa.
I am selling my three books; AmeriCaCa, the Sounds of Silenced Survivors; Spilling the Beans, there was an American Holocaust that killed my mother and The Indian Dream, Healing from the American Holocaust.
Book Prices vary (sales tax as well as shipping and handling are included)
I am also available for training, consultation or teaching about my Traditional Healing Praxis.
I was an Indian without a tribe, stuck in the Oakland Housing Projects … with only a maternal compass to guide me. “Dios te bendiga, Mijo,” my mother would say placing her hand on my forehead each day, asking God to bless me. I could feel her medicine, her energy, and her hope for me enter my body, fill my soul, and warm the cold. This was Her Blessing Way, praying for my protection in her absence, warning me of all the dangers. There were many dangers for an Indian boy in 1950s Apartheid Oakland, a reflection of Apartheid America.
This is a story of raising children in a country that hated US, a story of how my mother fought to protect her Native son, a story of how she WON! This is an example of a common Native struggle; native mothers protecting their children, during and after “The Indian Wars.” This is about the generational trauma from “The Indian Wars” and the wounded soul of an Indian boy, growing up to be a Warrior … in response to that war against our humanity.
