Learn about China
|Alaska • First Nation • Thanksgiving|
Draw on our varied resources to learn about the culture and history of China.
By way of an introduction, we have China, a country whose culture dates back 4,200 to 5,000 years ago. And we know that in paleolithic times Asian people began traveling out of Mongolia into Russia, crossing over to Alaska, then Canada, on down into America. Asian People become First Nation People.
China has 56 Ethnic Tribes (Atayal tribe, one of Taiwan's 14 native ethnic groups,) and America has 562 First Nation tribal entities recognized and eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs by virtue of their status as Indian tribes re: Section 104 of the Act of November 2, 1994 (Pub. L. 103-454; 108 Stat. 4791, 4792. These tribes guard their, territories, languages, songs, history, and stories. The tribes protect their culture and don't want to assimilate, which makes governance a real problem.
Birch Bark was also used to make clothes
The letter -- a report from a historical society that had sought interpretation from Ojibwe medicine men -- said the scrolls depicted ceremonial songs "concerning the most fundamental laws and needs of the [Ojibwe] people." 42 birch bark scrolls inscribed with symbols and pictures were more than 200 years old, and all originated "at Nett Lake on the Bois Forte Reservation." Traditionally, memory-aiding symbols and pictures were inscribed on birch bark to preserve the stories and songs, because the Ojibwe had no written language. The society has a reputation for strict secrecy, no doubt reinforced when it was outlawed for almost 100 years and was driven underground. Many of the original birch bark scrolls were destroyed by missionaries who saw the Midewiwin as an obstacle to Christianizing the Ojibwe.
At some point the European invader came and took what they wanted from the indigenous people who first lived in America. First Nation People didn't want to be conqured and have their land stolen away, but they were pushed off their land, offered deals, contracts, promises, and apologies from the U.S. government. An apology for the government's deceipt, never giving the money owed to First Nation people.
Then Wall Street crashed. Seems after all the years of thievery, deregulation and corporate corruption by the original industrialists that once profited from their piracy, (by taking the land away from the First Nation people) asks the US government for a bailout. Wall Street needed money, | FINANCIAL LITERACY |and they got it. Yes, Congress authorized the money in only ten days, imagine that!
Now, America owes China a lot of money. The Treasury Department estimates that American debt to China is approximately $889 billion. That is more than $10,000 in debt for the average American working family. Asian People become First Nation People and now the Chinese own America. What goes around, comes around.
China's communist rulers are now the world's most powerful and wealthy political party, but China is just a cell phone swarm away from revolution in certain regions, with a Nobel Peace Prize to a jailed Chinese activist.

“Therefore I say: Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal. If ignorant of your enemy and of yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril.” ~ Sun Tzu
And Even if Communist China controls all media 24/7 360 people can read! China's newspaper circulation surpassed 50 billion, rising 13.9 percent year on year and continuing to rank first in the world. 25 mainland dailies stood among the top 100 dailies in the world in 2010.

The U.S. And Its Long History With The 'Middle Kingdom' Americans, going back to the 1700s, have been convinced China would become more like us. Merchants thought so. Missionaries and diplomats thought so. Advocates of free trade, the rule of law and open internet thought so. But... it is not the result of a modern democratic society that so many Americans have wished for.
The First lie is that Franklin Deleno Roosevelt's grandfather was a very prominent China trader, when in fact he was an Opium Smuggler! That is where the profits came from that made the first great, rich families of the United States.

5/10/18 Alexa and Siri Can Hear This Hidden Command. You Can’t. Researchers can now send secret audio instructions undetectable to the human ear to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/10/technology/alexa-siri-hidden-command-audio-attacks.html the first papers on audio attacks, which he titled “Cocaine Noodles” because devices interpreted the phrase “cocaine noodles” as “O.K., Google.” Last year, researchers at Princeton University and China’s Zhejiang University demonstrated that voice-recognition systems could be activated by using frequencies inaudible to the human ear. The attack first muted the phone so the owner wouldn’t hear the system’s responses, either. Chinese and American researchers from China’s Academy of Sciences and other institutions, demonstrated they could control voice-activated devices with commands embedded in songs that can be broadcast over the radio or played on services like YouTube. Computers can be fooled into identifying an airplane as a cat just by changing a few pixels of a digital image, while researchers can make a self-driving car swerve or speed up simply by pasting small stickers on road signs and confusing the vehicle’s computer vision system. There is already a history of smart devices being exploited for commercial gains through spoken commands. There is no American law against broadcasting subliminal messages to humans, let alone machines.

He and the dozen men who shared his cell would blearily pull on their blue-and-white-striped uniforms and line up in front of their bunks for the day’s first duty: greeting the guards. “Good morning, officer!” they’d shout.

Wild Laws: China and Its Role in Illicit Wildlife Trade Picture your typical farm: Pigs, cows, chickens, goats…and tigers? This may sound far-fetched, but many iconic wild animals – including tigers, bears, and rhinos – are now farmed en masse in China.
“China’s farming of wild animals such as tigers, bears, and, more recently, rhinos, has not provided any conservation benefit to these species,” said Allan Thornton, president of the nonprofit Environmental Investigative Agency (EIA). Wild products are regarded as superior to farm-raised, and the legal market simply makes it easier to launder poached animal products.
JANUARY 2020 CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY government temporarily suspended the buying and selling of wild-animal products, which are commonly used for food, fur and in traditional medicines in China. But the emergency measure will be lifted once the outbreak ends. Next Monday, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, the country’s highest decision-making body, will meet to decide how the trade in wildlife products should be regulated in the long term. They will never stop. China’s coronavirus battle may be ending but its war on eating wild animals has just begun. China is a major destination for trafficked animals. Eradicating the notorious and superstitious habits of eating exotic animals for health or status and the practice of harvesting animal parts for medicinal use is deeply ingrained in Chinese culture and history for thousands of years and worth US$18 billion, employing more than 6 million people in 2016. The supply chain was legal until the latest permanent ban in December 2019 which will get lifted and does not include the vast size of the black market.
