A few months ago we said what are the Jesuits realy
doing at Mount  Graham ????
 Well is a sacred site used by  the native American
indians for thousands of years ,  doesnt that tell you
something? Are we still so stupid in the west to
wonder about the hidden magical powers of the Apache
indians , I hope not.
We said in our previous articles that  the Jesuits are
doing black magic to evoke entities and they need
special power spots for these rituals , so what's
better then a Apache holy site as an ideal place to
conduct such secret occult  operations ,  away  from
the eyes of public in a specific holy site known as
Dzil Nchaa Sií An were apparentely  very powerfull
Jinns (entities) reside in parallel dimensions as the
indians also confirm.The Apache are not ignorant  and
know about the power of the dark forces behind the
Vatican Observatory of Mount Graham and they
definetely know better then the white man about the
evil of black magic . So they start questioning the
presence of the Jesuits in their holy site. And this
is what happens in their own resolution made by the
National Congress of American indians , a resolution
that opposes the Jesuit Order presence on their Sacred
Mountain  and their so called Observatory also used to
monitor the stars for the complex astronomical
calculations used for their rituals.

And now the situation get's even more incredible as
the return of the Holy Inquisition seems round the
corner with the statement of  the Vatican
Observatory-through its Director, Jesuit priest Fr.
Joseph Coyne denouncing the Apaches' spiritual
relationship with dzil nchaa si'an !!!
This is something we cant tollerate coming from the
Church of Satanism in Rome...the Jesuits are evil
black magician and dangerous sorcerers send them away
from the apache Holy mountain now, support the
American indians in their struggle to reclaim their
sacred site.

I also found a unedited text of an article published
"Native Tribes Struggle to Reclaim Sacred Sites"  that
describes very well the situation  in Pulse of the
Twin Cities newspaper, June 1, 2005

Leo Lyon Zagami



Dozens of the largest astronomical research
institutions gather this week in Minneapolis to laud
and promote their endeavors at the meeting of the
American Astronomical Society (AAS). Representing
major universities, scientific foundations, and U.S.
military-industrial interests, the astronomers will
present to each other grand plans for future
discoveries, conquests, and dreams for designs of
ever-larger telescopes and telescope complexes.

What may sadly be lost to the AAS is the true impact
of its privilege: the failure to recognize Indigenous
knowledge, the desecration of sacred sites, and the
inability to self-reflect on a profound disrespect
that perpetuates harm to an imperiled earth and its
peoples. At odds are divergent cosmologies and the
power of uncompromising researchers' knowledge versus
the strength of indigenous ways of knowing. A key
component in these clashes is the willful disregard of
Native sovereignty and ever-mutating forms of

Minnesota is no stranger to these issues. When the
University of Minnesota (UM) Board of Regents pledged
$10 million to support UM's astronomers buying into
the controversial Mount Graham telescope project in
2002, Minnesota was dragged into an international
conflict. Identified by the United Nations High
Commission on Human Rights as one of the most
egregious examples of religious intolerance by
government in the United States, the telescope complex
on the Western Apache sacred mountain is the source of
a profound disturbance.

Aligned with traditional Apaches in their on-going
struggle for religious freedom and sacred site
protection are two other Indigenous peoples fighting
the astro-colonization in the form of expanding
telescope complexes in their homelands. Mauna Kea, on
the Big Island of Hawai'i, and Kitt Peak, in Arizona,
are coveted by astronomical scientists for their
excellent atmospheric conditions. Along with Mount
Graham, whose humidity and atmospheric turbulence
ranks it lower in astro-quality, those high mountains
are also revered by their Native inhabitants as
essential to their traditional ways of life.

The astronomers' unilateral desecrations of sacred
summits such as Mount Graham, Mauna Kea, and Kitt Peak
for expanding telescope complexes exemplify the dark
side of mission creep and the pandemic expansion of
the astronomy industry. The conflicts that arise
between scientists and Native peoples regarding such
desecrations are caused by the fundamental lack of
respect by astronomers, their university
administrations, and associated governing bodies, as
well as their sidestepping of established laws and
policies that were enacted to defend Indigenous
peoples' human rights and protect their sacred lands.
Today, continued and growing opposition, constant
litigation, and persistent protests cloud the future
for all three observatory projects and bring focus to
the fundamental moral and ethical issues facing the
astronomers and the funders involved.


According to its literature, "The American
Astronomical Society…is the major organization of
professional astronomers in North America." That the
AAS would select Minnesota as its host site is clearly
an indication, in part, of the spoils of UM
astronomers' hard-fought efforts to buy into the
telescope project on Mount Graham. The UM astronomers
who lured billionaire Stanley Hubbard of Hubbard
Broadcasting in 2001 to make his $5 million matching
gift for the University's investment in the Mount
Graham telescope project have again teamed up with
Hubbard to sponsor this year's conference. Joining
Hubbard to pay for the four-day gala at the
Minneapolis Convention Center is the University of
Minnesota, UM Institute of Technology, the University
of Minnesota Foundation, UM Graduate School, and the
UM Office of the Vice-President and Provost, as well
as Denver-based Ball Aerospace, a corporation that
designs surveillance and laser and other military

The interdependence of military money and university
science is becoming rampant in the field of astronomy.
The lure of the lucrative contracts that led UM to opt
into Mount Graham despite great opposition is the same
attraction that drives the controversial "strategic
positioning plan" by which UM proposes to eliminate
its General College. It may be that UM is counting on
their sponsorship of the AAS conference as a good
investment. It may be a necessary one, as the
astronomy department is still far short of coming up
with the millions of dollars more needed to match
Hubbard's $5 million gift. Maybe UM should take the
opportunity to shop for a more suitable telescope
project, as Hubbard said that they could do in 2002,
when Hubbard was confronted with the implications of
his donation in its harm to the Apache people. Hubbard
revealed that he was deceived by UM astronomers who
had stated to him that the Apache tribes approved of
the observatory.

Mount Graham (known to the Apaches as dzil nchaa
si'an) was originally within the boundary of the Fort
Apache Reservation, but it was taken away from the
Apaches by executive order in 1873. Its relative
isolation and national forest and wilderness
protection left much of Mount Graham's old-growth
summit undeveloped until the University of Arizona
(UA) invaded the pristine mountaintop to construct
telescopes. Today, a towering 14-story metal box built
to house the large binocular telescope (LBT) looms
high above the forest on Emerald Peak, visible from
both the San Carlos and White Mountain Apache
reservations. Originally named the "Columbus
Project"-a name that was changed after an
international protest against the observatory was held
in the U.S. and European cities on Columbus Day
1992-the LBT was to be completed in October of 1992.
The LBT is already thirteen years late and is plagued
by international scandal, major technological
failures, and modifications to compensate for
atmospheric turbulence. Chronically cash-strapped, the
UA's big telescope endeavor is not complete. UA may be
far from the number one astronomical research
institution, but it has a notorious history for its
extreme efforts in appropriating dzi? nchaa si'an for
telescope development.

By the mid 1990s, UA became the first university to
lobby against the listing of an endangered species. It
became the first university to fight in court against
the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, to arrest
an American Indian for praying, and to demand permits
be obtained by Apaches to pray on their sacred
mountain. UA is also the first university to seek
exemption from all U.S. environmental laws, which it
chose to do twice to circumvent regulatory processes
and court orders that blocked the construction of
telescopes on Mount Graham.

Most bizarre of all, perhaps, is the combative stance
The Vatican has taken as one of UA's partners in the
Mount Graham project. The Vatican Observatory-through
its Director, Jesuit priest Fr. Joseph Coyne-has gone
even beyond UA's assertions, denouncing the Apaches'
spiritual relationship with dzil nchaa si'an. Coyne
stated in the first edition of his manifesto, Personal
Reflections on the Nature of Sacred, published from
the Pope's medieval Italian fortress retreat, Castel
Gandolfo, that the perspective of the Apaches in
defending Mount Graham "is a kind of religiosity that
must be suppressed with all the force we can muster."
Even more outrageous is that another Jesuit, former
Arizona State Museum Curator, Charles Polzer, charged
that the opposition to the LBT project "came out of
the Jewish lawyers of the ACLU" as "an attempt to
undermine and destroy the Catholic Church."

By forcing itself onto the mountain, UA lost many
allies. In the 1990s, numerous major astronomical
institutions abandoned consideration of the Mount
Graham site, including UA's original partners Harvard
and the Smithsonian Institution. Many of the
institutions that spurned UA cited environmental and
cultural considerations. More recently, Germany's Max
Planck Institute decided to look for a better site for
participation in a radiotelescope after years on the
mountain, opting out of its contract with UA because
of Mount Graham's poor atmospheric conditions for

The loss of UA's would-be telescope subscribers could
explain the desperate efforts used to secure new
investment from the University of Minnesota. When UM
was confronted by internal opposition to its plan to
buy into the observatory, it followed the leadership
of UA's well-developed public information team to
fight it. All the way to the contentious 3-2 Board of
Regents Finance Committee vote and the Regents'
subsequent conditional approval, initiated and led by
Regent Frank Berman, for joining the project in late
2002, UM chose a moral low road and decided to not
value the needs of the Apache people to have their
mountain respected.

Indeed, the actions taken by UM astronomers mimicked
the UA's own historical tactics against the Apaches'
defense of Mount Graham: deny, suppress, attack, and
then circumvent. UM Department of Astronomy Chair Len
Kuhi first claimed he was never told about the
cultural controversy surrounding Mount Graham. Stanley
Hubbard claimed that he was told that the San Carlos
Apache Tribe supported the project. When the facts
clearly contradicted assertions and grew to include
resolutions from the UM Faculty Senate Social Concerns
Committee and UM President's American Indian Advisory
Board, the American Indian Studies Department, the
Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, and others, UM's
investment began to look shaky. At that point, UA and
UM lawyers got together to move the collaboration
forward at any cost. Ultimately, UM's Board of Regents
voted to join the project, conditional on offering the
Apaches money and subscribing to UA's proposal to
convene an "Apache grievance committee."

To date, none of the UM Regents' conditions have been
met. Working with the universities, UA Indian Law
Professor Robert Williams created the "Northern Tribes
Initiative," which was flatly rejected by the San
Carlos Apache Tribe in April of 2004. Ola Cassadore
Davis, daughter of the last traditional Apache Chief
and founder of the Apache Survival Coalition, referred
to the initiative as "offering cash in exchange for
our Apache religion and culture." Another attempt by
the universities in April of this year was also
rejected. It would have paid lip service to UM
Regents' intentions while trying to gain tacit support
for at least four additional telescopes on Mount

Fortunately for UM, their contract allows them to
withdraw and recover their entire capital investment
as early as June 30 of this year, as the UA's
telescope remains incomplete, behind schedule, and
unusable, despite UA's showman's hawkings. Respected
National Optical Astronomy Observatory scientist, Dr.
Roger Lynds, obviously had it right years ago when he
said UA's LBT project on Mount Graham "is all about
'self-aggrandizement…. It's got nothing to do with
science, technology, and truth or the best use of
taxpayers' money.'"

There are many people who say that UA should heed the
warning signs it has ignored so far. As former San
Carlos Apache Tribe Chairman and Apache Survival
Coalition board member, Raleigh Thompson, explained in
the aftermath of the gigantic forest fire that was
started by lightning last summer on Mount Graham and
threatened the observatory complex: "Lightning is the
very power of God in Apache belief. This fire was not
accidental, but a warning that the mountain can defend
itself. We have warned the Forest Service and the
University of Arizona time and time again that what
they are doing up there is desecration, but they don't
listen to us."

Another fire, this time within the coalition of Native
peoples who are fighting for their way of life, is
gathering fuel and threatens to end the desecration of
these sacred places. Wendsler Nosie, a member of the
San Carlos Apache Tribal Council and organizer of the
annual Mount Graham Sacred Run, feels that Apaches and
other Indigenous peoples have been tolerant for too
long. "It once was necessary for survival," explains
Nosie. However, Nosie feels that his people "need to
start addressing the abuse that is happening to them.
That abuse must stop, or we are not going to have
anything for our children." Unfortunately, the abuse
of Mount Graham is mirrored in struggles over sacred
summits elsewhere.
