TUCSON, Ariz. - Vine DeLoria Jr., the intellectual star of the American Indian renaissance, passed on Nov. 13, after struggling for several weeks with declining health. His immeasurable influence became immediately apparent in an outpouring of tributes from all corners of Indian country.

''I cannot think of any words I could possibly say that even begin to capture the significance of this man and his work among Native people and on our behalf for the past half century,'' said Richard West Jr., director of the National Museum of the American Indian in a message to his staff.

''He has been our ranking scholar and intellectual light for all of those years.''

The NMAI was only one of many Native institutions that DeLoria made possible or deeply influenced during his 73 years. From the activist end of the spectrum, a tribute on the Colorado AIM Web site said, ''It is safe to say that without the example provided by the writing and the thinking of Vine Deloria Jr., there likely would have been no American Indian Movement, there would be no international indigenous peoples' movement as it exists today, and there would be little hope for the future of indigenous peoples in the Americas.'' full article

"During the Iran-Iraq war [when he was backed by the US, nlpwessex], Saddam Hussein discovered the most lethal chemical warfare agent was a combination of sulfur mustard gas with hydrogen cyanide, which he used in artillery shells to slaughter thousands of Iranians. It was in effect this same combination that the FBI used to slaughter 87 men, women and children in Waco.... The question is: who authorized the CS/MC combination? CS is not normally dissolved into a solution. Who knew about MC and could order it to be a solvent for CS?.... There are few more monstrous crimes against humanity than torturing children to death in screaming pain, poison-gassing them to death on purpose.... As America comes to grips with the danger and evil of Saddam Hussein and gets ready to extinguish it, America also needs to come to grips with the evil it condoned at Waco."

"Last week, because a former FBI man went public, FBI officials finally admitted lying to Reno when they said they hadn't used pyrotechnic devices. The 1997 documentary has pictures of the two pyrotechnic gas grenades the FBI admitted using.... A Dow Chemical fire expert and a former EPA gas expert testify on the flammability of the CS gas, and how it creates hydrogen cyanide when it burns. That's the same stuff used in gas chambers. The film shows a photo of the burned corpse of an 8-year-old, bent backward like a prawn because of muscle contractions characteristic of hydrogen cyanide poisoning. The gas expert says that prisoners condemned to the gas chamber are strapped down so witnesses to the execution don't have to see that kind of death.... The mothers [at Waco] should have saved their children by sending them out, said the FBI."

"Between 1985-89, US firms exported Bacillus anthracis (anthrax), Clostridium botulinum, Histoplasma capsulatam, Brucella melitensis, Clostridium perfringens (gas gangrene), Clostridium tetani (tentanus), Escherichia coli, and 'dozens of other pathogenic biological agents,' to Iraq."
