Who doesn’t know sugar prices are about to plunge?

Lt Col Vaniqi MID (mentioned in too many despatches) has done it again. He’s found a new way to demonstrate what a fool he is. This time it’s a threat that he won’t sell sugar to Tate and Lyle if they don’t offer him the price he wants. He doesn’t seem to know that sugar prices are falling and will continue to fall. A Wall Street Journal article in 24 April reported: “Even as prices plumb nearly three-year lows, investors are betting that they will drop even more.” The article also says: “‘Investors say they are willing to bet on lower prices because sugar cane must be crushed soon after it is harvested, meaning mills can’t hold back supply while they wait for prices to rebound.” The Wall Street Journal could not know that tucked away in the Sugar Ministry in Fiji there is a fool who’s been holding onto sugar all through 2012 hoping for a higher price.

    Snoqualmie Hereditary Chief Desk P a g e | 1
    Monday, February 27, 2012
    Dear Larry Claunch – Chairman of the Board, One Hundred Sands, LTD,
    My name is Jerry Kanim Enick, hereditary Chief of the Snoqualmie Indians. My grandfather was Jerry Kanim, Chief of the Snoqualmie Indians from 1916 – 1956 and he was the nephew of Chief Pat Kanim who is the second signatory on the Point Elliot Treaty of 1855 along with 13 other Kanim sub-chiefs. The Kanim’s are a Chiefdom Treaty signer family. The earliest records going back to the late 1700 show that the Snoqualmie Chiefdom has always been in the ‘Kanim’ sire name by the wishes of the people.
    My grandfather, Chief Jerry Kanim, worked all of his life on significant issues affecting the lives of the Snoqualmie people. He pursued hunting, fishing and land rights at the Federal, State and local levels. In 1928 he was elected Head of the Business Council instituted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to deal with the Tulalip Agency Superintendent on all matters affecting the Snoqualmie people on and off the reservations.
    His personal leadership also took the form of counseling members and settling disputes between the Snoqualmie. He dealt with all external authorities concerning the welfare of tribal members, interceding for those in legal troubles or in need of economical assistance. He organized Native work forces to pick hops and work in the timber mills and logging industry. He intervened in the needs and welfare of his people requesting special funds from congress for the aged and infirmed. He led the Great Snoqualmie into the ‘industrial revolution’ in the early 1940’s.
    He wrote many letters to the Governor, attorneys, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and worked closely with special agent Charles Roblins with census issues. On Dec 17, 1934 he wrote US President F. D. Roosevelt requesting a land base for the off-reservation Snoqualmie. From 1920 on, he sponsored an annual Fourth of July get-together for all people on the aboriginal lands in Tolt, WA which has always included US politicians and legislators.
    He led the formalization of the Snoqualmie Tribal organization and the creation of the tribes’ constitution and its council structure. Jerry Kanim’s leadership in itself was enough for the Federal government to establish that the Snoqualmie had met criterion (c) of the 7 Federal recognition criteria.
    His hereditary tenure very substantially exceeded the minimal requirements of the acknowledgement regulations and was the cornerstone for the Snoqualmie’s long awaited recognition in 1999.
    His last public appearance was at the Fall City Derby days in June of 1955 where he spoke to all people and recalled their former friendship and urged for a continuance of brotherly relations and respect. His address was responded to
    by U. S. Congressman Thor C. Tollefson, who pledged the faith of the government and his fellow men in continuing relations and understanding with the Indian affairs of today.

    His funeral was the largest on record ever held in the Tolt valley. Grandpa was friends of such pioneers as Jack Bush, Davis Rutherford, Uncle Si Merritt, Doc Taylor, David Henry Thomas and Jerry Borst as Mr. Borst was married to Jerry’s sister Kate Kanim Borst. Other close families of the Tolt pioneers were, Entwistle, Larson, Lord, Bagwell and Mcdevitt.
    His political letter writing was continued by my mother, his only daughter, Evelyn Kanim Enick. As the Princess of the Tribe my mother wrote Indian agents, agency superintendents, state representatives’ and went to Washington DC on equal rights issues for her people under the protections of the 25 CFR Indians.
    Historical facts resourced from the ‘DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR – Bureau of Indian Affairs -Final Determination to Acknowledge the Snoqualmie Tribe, Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs pursuant to 25 CFR 83.10(m).
    – It is in the spirit of our history, and of the rights and responsibilities as Hereditary Chief of the Snoqualmie Indians, to protect the rights of our people, that I say this to you today.
    The people who have been representing themselves to you as the Snoqualmie Council members have been invalid since June 1, 2011 when they refused to call the Constitutional traditional May elections of 2011 of the Snoqualmie people. As a result, the Snoqualmie Tribe is currently in litigation over these intra-tribal matters. The people you have been meeting with have no authority under the Snoqualmie Constitution to carry out the affairs of the Snoqualmie Nation. All matters and business conducted since June 1st 2011 will be challenged in Tribal or U.S. Federal court by the Snoqualmie people including the recent unauthorized Fiji investment.
    The traditional tribal ways and customs of the Snoqualmie have been preserved and are evident in recent tribal legislative affairs governing the tribal council and the general membership, who is the ‘final arbitrator’ in matters of the Snoqualmie. Since this deal is staking its success upon the spirit of “strong cultural virtues of Tribal and community ties”, as you have so eloquently stated, we would like to think that a company such as yours would have conducted a more thorough & binding due diligence process in regards to the traditions of our people and the current political condition of the Snoqualmie before proceeding this far, and would have made sure that the Snoqualmie Chiefdom be acquainted with the Fiji Chiefdom. As I am sure you are aware that by the nature of Native American Tribes, the complexities are great for outside investors in securing their investments when Tribal political processes and changes directly affect the stabilization of investments and strategic collaborating of Indian and non-Indian.
    The General Membership knew nothing of this investment whatsoever and financial executives advised against it. We are currently in great debt to the amount of $330 million USD on our own casino. This has caused great unrest and added distress to the current highly charged political atmosphere in the Snoqualmie Tribe. In addition, the current Tribal enrollment audit is raising concerns of eligibility to govern, based on the Snoqualmie Constitutional requirement of 1/8th Snoqualmie blood.
    These behaviors and findings serve to strengthen the people’s call for the dissolution of this unauthorized investment in Fiji. The Kanim family requested that their family member on council, not attend recent meetings in Fuji in direct protest of this clandestine maneuver by the invalid council and the rogue and opportunistic Tribal Administrator.
    We would appreciate a statement of your position on this matter as we move closer to installing a new council for the Snoqualmie People. A copy of this letter is also being sent to the Fiji Government.

    “We must also point out that while the role of the CHIEF is a traditional role, it is a position of power, peacemaking and leader ship that has been part of Snoqualmie governance for thousands of years. We are honored to finally have the lineal CHIEF back in place because the Snoqualmie CHIEFDOM is now restored. It was Pat Kanium and 13 other Snoqualmie CHIEFS that signed the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855. It is the CHIEFDOM that represents our heritage and tradition of self-government. Any notion that the HEAD CHIEF is merely a lawn ornament is preposterous and disrespectful and wrong and further illustrates the lack of understanding and participation in Tribal Life.” – Matt Mattson, Snoqualmie Tribal Administrator, 2007.

    Authoritative Snoqualmie Chiefdom References from Tribal Officers & Historic Federal supporting Documents.
    “In 1916, Chief Jerry Kanim called a meeting of the Snoqualmie elders at Tolt/Carnation to consider a new form of government for the Snoqualmie. Some 50 – 60 people came to the meeting. They ate and slept at the Kanim home for almost 2 weeks while they discussed the concept and the nature of a tribal government and finally reached agreement. Following this meeting, Kanim visited elders to determine who he thought were qualified to be on the Snoqualmie council. On June 2nd, 1916, approximately 77 Snoqualmie gathered at Tolt/Carnation and elected a group to life terms as council members.” Dr Kenneth Tollefson, Dr Douglas Pennoyer, Proposed Finding for Federal Acknowledgement of the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, Approved: April 26th, 1993, Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs, Eddie Brown.
    “Strong evidence for political process among the Snoqualmie during Chief Jerry Kanim’s tenure is that external authorities recognized his political influence. The BIA, which dealt with the Snoqualmie as a recognized Tribe, consistently recognized and dealt with Kanim as a leader who represented the concerns and interests of the Snoqualmie members and exercised influence among those members.” Dr Kenneth Tollefson, Dr Douglas Pennoyer, Proposed Finding for Federal Acknowledgement of the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, Approved: April 26th, 1993, Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs, Eddie Brown.
    “The information concerning Chief Jerry Kanim’s leadership is sufficient in itself to establish that the Snoqualmie met criterion ( c ) of the Acknowledgement regulations during the period of his leadership. The level of political processes and exercise of political influence during Chief Jerry Kanim’s tenure very substantially exceeds the minimal requirement of the Acknowledgement regulations.” Dr Kenneth Tollefson, Dr Douglas Pennoyer, Proposed Finding for Federal Acknowledgement of the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, Approved: April 26th, 1993, Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs, Eddie Brown.
    “The tribal council and the general council played roles which were mainly contributory to the political influence exercised by Kanim within the Snoqualmie, serving as a sounding board and dealing with issues under his leadership. The General
    Membership is the final arbiter of political issues and conflicts.” Dr Kenneth Tollefson, Dr Douglas Pennoyer, Proposed Finding for Federal Acknowledgement of the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, Approved: April 26th, 1993, Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs, Eddie Brown.
    “The tribal chairman during Kanim’s period as Chief had played a relatively secondary role, and there is no indication that after Kanim died this role changed to one of activity and influence equivalent to that of the Chief.” Dr Kenneth Tollefson, Dr Douglas Pennoyer, Proposed Finding for Federal Acknowledgement of the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, Approved: April 26th, 1993, Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs, Eddie Brown.
    “Indeed, because the Chief is a Traditional position, not one created under the authority of Anglo-American Constitutional Law, for this reason, the Constitution does not set forth the parameters of the Traditional Chief’s authority” – Matt Matson, Tribal Administrator & Andrea Rodgers, In-House Legal Counsel, Memorandum, August 23rd 2007, Re; Staff Recommendations To Resolve Inter-Tribal Dispute.
    “Jerry Enick is the Head Chief. His role is to govern our People.” From testimony of Mary Anne Hinzman under oath before the Honorable James L. Robart, United States District Federal Judge, February 19th, 2009 in the banishment case of ‘Bill T. Sweet vs. Mary Anne Hinzman’ Case No. CO8-844JLR.
