Stand up for Captive Cherokee Warrior Oso Blanco
In October, Cherokee political prisoner Byron Shane of Chubbuck (also
known as Oso Blanco and Yona Unega) was preparing for a federal
transfer from USP Lewisburg to FCI Oakdale, Louisiana, Special
Management Unit (SMU). Lewisburg staff were well aware of the vital
tribal documents included in his property which were packed out
intact by Mr. Vey on October 4, 2011.
This transfer was canceled.There was a lot of delay and confusion in
getting Oso Blanco's property returned to him. Property came back
from Oakdale, Louisiana and was unpacked on January 13, 2012. Oso
Blanco's address book was torn in two. Vital documents that had been
inserted inside and held with a rubber band were missing. Other items
were missing. Generally the property was ransacked in a manner well
beyond simple negligence or sloppiness but rather, showing clear
signs deliberate destruction.
*Missing documents include the following:
*Copy of old original blue card
(Cherokee citizenship enrollment official document)
*New original blue card

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
This latest example of vindictive abuse from the Bureau of Prisons is
part of a long-term pattern of targeted harassment Oso Blanco his
refusal to cooperate with political incarceration by the United
States as he does not recognize the us as having any legitimate power
over him as a sovereign Cherokee.
This latest round of harassment in the form of ransacked and stolen
property comes as retribution for his filing on the basis of the US
having no plenary powers over indigenous nations as articulated by
Steven T Newcomb in his article, "No Plenary Power Over Indian Nations".
Oso Blanco has asserted his sovereignty as a Cherokee not subject to
bogus criminalization so his captors have responded by trying to
erase the documentation that proves his Cherokee citizenship.
