the truth campaign continues
Truth force / soul force rocks and rules. (see gandhi – the Indian from India)
this blog entry relates to the Truths about Barry Sewell’s attack on the Intertribal Deaf Council (IDC) – now the Sacred Circle
In 2007 Barry sent a letter riddled with falseHOODS to the Dept of Justice
(to see letter go to ASLitself’s video at 9:04 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjF1uUUb_pc)
The Dept of Justice – Portland Office replied saying IDC is fine and in compliance with the statutory legal requirements. The Chief Investigator noted that his review found nothing wrong with IDC’s documentation or practices and CLOSED the matter. (see same video above at 10:42)
Barry has made much ado about his efforts to “help” IDC but the facts reveal that IDC was strong and good BEFORE Barry came to spread his unlove and they are strong and good NOW.
3 weeks ago Barry was still spinning his web of lies about IDC.
In a recent youtube comment Barry wrote:
As for Intertribal Council for the Deaf. The people in charge at that time were white people. They pushed full and half blooded Native Americans away from control

Barry names several individuals as founders of IDC saying they were kicked out of the organization and/or they provided him with hard evidence of violations through the years. These Native Americans (Cherokee, Cheyenne, Tuscarora, Blackfoot, Lumbee, Chippewa-Cree, etc.) actually did not support or agree with Barry’s complaint to the Dept of Justice even though he FALSELY and UNJUSTLY names them in his complaint.
[This was done in Feb 2007. Barry would go on to use a similar FAILED technique in his efforts to split up and destroy the Deaf Bilingual Coalition. We see a pattern of his joining a group and folks accepting him on good faith as they go about the “good work” only to see him demand they do it his way or he will threaten, exhort, divide, disinform, distort, attack etc etc. Thankfully his wittle wicked webbing has never worked.
Thankfully the groups and individuals he has done this to smarted up very quickly – disassociated themselves from him and went on to do the good work despite his constant nipping at their heels.]
i.e. “Wag the dog” is what he be doing in the comment section.
comment from Barry in youtube a recent thread
Part 2 – The white administrators of Intertribal Council for the Deaf were upset because they were caught off guarded by somebody who knew and understood Native American ceremonial traditions and cultures. The organization was full of wanna-be’s and a fake medicine man. I put an end to it because the traditinal half and full blooded deaf Native American were no longer in control. The lady you spoke to claimed to have an Indian blood in_ her but she was never able to prove it. She was white.

IDC had and has Native American leadership. Barry himself is not Native American and some might call him a “wanna-be and a fake medicine man” (hmmm more wagging the dog by Barry? Just asking)
The Native American woman he targeted unjustly and relentlessly stepped down most likely because she did not want to see the organization harmed and because the dude, Barry, is a bit scary.
Another recent youtube thread comment from Barry:
Also why don’t you ask that lady why she had returned $5,000 and a computer back to the organization and what happened afterwards. She dropped the ball and returned some stuff. One other lady took over and saw the mess they were in and dropped the ball again. One other guy took over and could never correct the mess. End result? They shut down. All because as a Member I asked_ to see their financial report. They refused until Oregon Department of Justice stepped in. They dropped the ball. ; )

More crap from Barry. No balls were dropped except his own perhaps. The organization presented all the requested materials to the Dept of Justice and the Dept of Justice said – looks fine and dandy. The organization continued and still continues.
Despite all his claims of knowing strategies, politics, government, how to do – do, being media savvy etc – HE FAILED
We will see his PATTERN of lodging falsehood after falsehoods against individuals and organizations, again and again only to see him FAIL.
Why? Because falsehoods #uck and truth and love rock.
They always win. Think of it always – Gandhi said.
Again, i take no pleasure in doing this. This is not a space for folks to show up and trash Barry or any others who have associated with him. This is just a place for the truth and love. I love Barry enough to spell out the truth. I love our commUNITY enough to spell out the truth. Ignoring, lying, and hating are NOT the answer. Direct confrontation with TRUE peace and love in our hearts.
Re: comment sections – this is NOT a place to try to discredit or defame Deaf Native Americans and their organization. I know some of folks of Native decent have vouched for Barry but some of these same folks later admitted to being hoodwinked and have withdrawn their support and many more who are reputable and honest – simply keep a wide berth of him and his bad “medicine.”
What was done to them was unjust and we should all be upset about it. Many of us have been guilty of being BYSTANDERS and preaching an unjust gospel of “just ignore him.” You forget the “First they came for….”
