*Afterwards Powwows in Mannheim and Bielefeld flown back without money in US reserves *
Again the white man has lied to them and has cheated them, say the Elders of several Indian’s Tribes in the USA. The fury is directed this spot on German arrangement managers who have exploited a group of natives supposedly after lying through one´s teeth.
Article written by Wieland Schmid
In Mannheim about 60 men, women and children from the Indian reservations of Oklahoma and Texas have still felt fairly good. During ten days the dancers, singers and musicians have pointed in July to the north people of “Germany-Baden” what North American natives understand by a Powwow, a dance party, and besides, according to their own view her best given. In the meantime, are the Comanche, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Blackfeet, Kiowa and Lakota again at home, but they dig up the nowadays hatchet.
” All nations are in bright fury “, says the 52-year-old “Strong Wolf”, the war headman is living in “Heilbronn” and he is part of the “Muskokee Indian Tribes”. ” The German organizers have taken in
my compatriots through one´s teeth. ”
Headman “strong wolf” who was christened in Florida by the name “Larry Nichols” and lives for more than 30 years in Germany, phones daily and constantly indignant tribe elders in the USA which feel cheated once again from the white man. ” We must even fear that German tourists are may be attacked in the tribal areas ” in the US, said Nichols who constantly takes care about what everybody feels as a great “scandal” and “Scam”. We work on this investigation with several trusted people in Germany and several North American Natives who are constant living in Germany.
But also the US Embassy in Germany and the Bielefelder police are already switched on in the case with which it is about unpaid fees and hotel calculations as well as the supposed theft of art-craft objects in the total value of several ten thousand Euros.
In the centre of the growing excitement stand the businessmen “Werner Muellender” and “Willy Beivers” of the Cologne artist’s agency “Serena”. The organizers of the Indian’s festivals in Mannheim and Bielefeld had got between the 13th July and the 5th August, more than six dozen Indians from their reservations and in each case allow to appear during ten days before audience. For every arrangement day the company “Serena” had assured by contract the adults 150 Euros and the children about 75 euros. But “Beivers” has given us only once in a while some Euros “, says “Alan Yeahquo” of the Kiowa Tribes” We have come home without agreed payment. ”
The Bielefelder newspaper “Neue Westfälische” has already reported about ” mighty trouble “.
” The Indians accuse the white man who has got them to Germany to keep from them the agreed
fee “, one says in the contribution which has appeared one day after the return flight of the Indians to the USA. According to a Bielefelder journalist “Willy Beivers” has also admitted openly, but he feels in the right “. The cultural manager wants to settle accounts ” only later finally ” and accuses the Indians on his part, among the rest, they would not have kept to the arranged appearance times and would have tried constantly “to pull a fast one” on him. One of the affected Indians who had come with her two-year-old son to Germany reports about the fear of the whole group to run aground last still in Bielefeld.
During the day when the fee should be paid the German organizers had disappeared. Only after itself the US Embassy had switched on, the company “Serena” paid at least the busses to the Frankfurt airport. From the airport of destination Dallas the deeply disappointed Indians could go on only immediately because a Cherokee headman had organised at the request of Larry Nichol’s penalty for the mostly impecunious “Germany travellers”.
At the end, complains an Indian, ” the dancers and singers have been Slaves who would have worked only for catering and lodging”. Even if the organizers wanted to pay now, they would have ” no address in which account they could send me or my family the money “.
“Werner Muellender” sees this different. “We will regulate this”, promises the manager of the company “Serena” on inquiry of the Stuttgart newspaper. ” We have only kept back onto the money because we do not agree with the demands of the Indians. ” Among the rest, he criticises that 89 flights have been booked, but only 67 Indians have come. In addition, the group has not often kept to the appearance times, singles would sometimes have been absent the whole day. ” But for free days I do not pay “, says “Muellender.”
” I am no Gold-Ass which one can bleed. ” Now the manager ” wants to clear for the moment the time absents “. Then, so he says, ” the people get their money who have well worked. But with some we will have to go harder to the court “.
“Muellender” wants to organise, nevertheless, ” once more such a thing “, but then ” we select to us the people straight “, he explains. However, it is doubtful whether the planned recruitment is successful in Indian reservations. From Heilbronn “Larry Nichols” and his comrades-in-arms have warned not only numerous Tribe Elders in the USA about the white men from Cologne. They also alarmed the society for threatened people, on her Internet page http: // www.gfbv.de a warning tip
