The Native American Sargent York You've Never Heard Of

"Oklahoma's Greatest War Hero of WW1" Deserves The Medal of Honor
Official Website: https://JosephOklahombi.com

josephAward Joseph Oklahombi the Medal of Honor Posthumously

In 1918, at the tender age of 26, a young First Nations (Choctaw) man named Joseph Oklahombi served in the same theater of war as Sgt. Alvin York. Despite not being able to speak English or vote due to his heritage, he demonstrated unparalleled bravery and heroism on the battlefield. His exploits mirrored those of Sgt. York's, occurring only a few days apart from each other.

Unable to speak English, Joseph decided that he should “speak the language of warfare in fighting for his country.” Little did he know that his native language would become an invaluable tool to help the United States defeat Germany.

The Choctaw were the very first "Code Talkers" and Joseph was one of the first. Joseph served in the Thirty-Sixth Infantry Division's Company D, First Battalion, 141st Regiment, Seventy-First Brigade stationed in France during WWI. One day while he was conversing with other Choctaws, Colonel A.W. Bloor realized that he was unable to understand what the Indians were saying. He deducted that since he could not understand their conversations, neither could the Germans. Working with the Choctaw soldiers, Bloor put together a code that substituted the Choctaw language in place of the code used by the military. Joseph and 18 other native born Choctaws became known as the original "Code Talkers."

However, Joseph Oklahombi contributed much more than merely the translation of correspondence. On October 8, 1918, at St. Etienne, France, during the fierce Meuse-Argonne campaign, with the assistance of twenty-three other soldiers, Oklahombi attacked German machine gun nests and captured many of the enemy. According to the official report, Joseph, “under the most violent barrage” pushed through over 200 yards of “barbed wire entanglements, rushed on machine gun nests, capturing 171 prisoners.” Joseph single handedly kept these prisoners at bay “for three long hours until others in the company arrived.” And even though the German fortification contained over “fifty machine guns and trench mortars,” led by the brave “man-killer,” the Choctaw Indian squad seized the weaponry, “turned the captured guns on the enemy,” and held their position for “four days in spite of a continued barrage of large projectiles and gas shells.” Brave Joseph “crossed no man’s land many times to get information and assist wounded comrades.” Based on a statement issued by French Marshal Petain, Oklahombi killed seventy-nine German soldiers, and aided by his fellow Choctaws took care of those that were wounded.

Because of his gallant efforts, General John J. Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) in Europe during World War I, awarded him the Silver Star to be worn on the Victory Ribbon, while Marshal Petain bestowed upon him the Croix de Guerre, one of France's highest honors for bravery. The chivalry that this full blood Native American displayed overseas fulfilled a prophecy made by Pushmataha, a Choctaw chief who passed way in 1827, “that the Choctaw ‘War Cry’ would be heard in many foreign lands.”

Joseph Oklahombi's actions during World War I were nothing short of extraordinary and deserving recognition with the Medal of Honor - America's highest military honor for acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. Yet, despite his heroic deeds that saved countless lives, he was never awarded this prestigious medal.

This petition seeks justice for Joseph Oklahombi and recognition for his exceptional service to our country during one its most challenging times. It is time we honor him posthumously with the Medal Of Honor that he rightfully deserves.

Join us in righting this historical oversight by signing this petition today! Let us collectively ensure that Joseph Oklahombi’s bravery is acknowledged appropriately by our nation!

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Relatives (MMIWR)

MMIWWhat is the MMIW Movement? - We R Native

MMIW stands for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. It's a movement that advocates for the end of violence against Native women. It also seeks to draw attention to the high rates of disappearances and murders of Native people, particularly women and girls.

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Relatives (MMIWR)

The current reports of abduction and murder of Native women are alarming and represent one of the most horrific aspects of the spectrum of violence committed against Native women. The murder rate of Native women is more than ten times the national average on some reservations. These disappearances or murders are often connected to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sex trafficking. The intersection of gender-based violence and MMIWR is heavily intertwined. It is important to understand the connection between domestic, dating, and sexual violence and the high incidence of missing and murdered Indigenous women and relatives (MMIWR) in the United States.

Human Trafficking #MMIW - Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Relatives (MMIWR)

 rsw 400h 400cg trueVictims of Sex and Human Trafficking With each native case that comes to us, we hit the ground running. Every hour that goes by increases the chances of an unsuccessful recovery of abducted/trafficked people.

Through extensive undercover work and intelligence gathering, we work closely with local and state law enforcement agencies. Developing our connections, resources and points of contacts both domestically and internationally.

The Petrie Group's Agents work quickly to design a strategic plan and execute action in an efficient and targeted manner. The Native American population is the most vulnerable. Due to political and US Government failure to provide safe environments, educational opportunities, legal action against those who would perpetrate these acts of crime and the systematic destruction of their faiths, lands and artefacts show us they cannot be counted on. So, we have decided to live in this space and make a difference.

We bring them home by any means necessary. Our fees are based on cost. We do not make a profit off from Human Trafficking investigations, location or rescue! We do, however, ask for expenses to be covered. We use donations, and funds raised through our other branches and supporters to supplement the revenue needed to bring them home.

Traffickers employ a variety of control tactics, the most common include physical and emotional abuse and threats, isolation from friends and family, and economic abuse.

Our Agents are well trained to infiltrate, break these tactics to extract victims as quickly as possible. But that's not where this journey ends. After the case The Petrie Group helps to establish after care, services through local councilors, medical treatment and lodging.

Utilizing Family, Government and state/Tribal services.

Artist Spotlight: Randy Motz

IMG 3853 resizeThough not Native American by heritage, Randy has had a life-long passion for Native peoples, their histories, cultures, and their legends. Through his music and concerts, he shares that passion with others and considers himself "Native in spirit.”

The name “Windtalker” is a trail name he adopted in 2006 during his six-month, 2,175-mile thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, a journey he accomplished with his wife. When he began performing and recording, he kept “Windtalker” as a professional moniker.

Beginning with his debut album, “Native Soundscapes,” in 2006, “Windtalker” has been on a journey to redefine Native American-style flute music to expose it to a wider audience. With each successive album, the style, emotion, and complexity of his compositions has evolved, with his latest and sixth CD, “Earth Songs,” simultaneously spanning multiple genres.

Throughout this musical journey, the haunting sounds of Native American-style flute have remained the centerpiece of his works, garnering him multiple music award nominations and in 2022, the award for “Best Flute Album” by One World Music Radio for his album, “Wind, Water and Stone.”

For more information about Windtalker and his music, visit www.windtalkermusic.com. Videos of many of the songs on his CDs, as well as live performances, and flute improvisations from locations around the world, are available at www.YouTube.com/windtalkermusic.
