Wading Through The Slimey Lies of Tamarack Song

Thanks to a dear reader for bringing to our attention the questionable biography Tamarack Song continues to pimp on his personal website. Since we find it almost unbearably tedious (as well as laughable) to read anything this nut case writes, our heart felt appreciation goes out to all of you who take the time to look over Dan Konen's fakelore and alert us to his phony junk.

Up for scrutiny this time is Tamarack's autobiographical fiction in the Background section of his slick website. Under the category of Honoring My Elders, we've chosen the subcategory "The Wandering Years" to highlight how we believe readers should approach Tamarack's fiction.

For example, concerning anything to do with Ojibwe Elder Keewaydinoquay, are there any people who can verify what Tamarack claims about his relationship to this woman? Any friends or family members of Keewaydinoquay? If Tamarack is really so honored by Indigenous people, why are there so few who can substantiate his claims? As one reader pointed out, the majority of the people Tamarack claims guided him in the past are dead, therefore they cannot contradict his story. This alone should be enough to send the sane running away as fast as they can from this useless fool.

Then again, white people wanting to Play Indian are not known for their sanity.

On another page, Tamarack says he fought beside Ojibwe warriors in the Walleye Wars and was "honored as an Ogichidaa (Warrior) by the Lac Du Flambeau Ojibwe."

Oh, really? Well who from that Nation can verify this claim? Can Dan Konen give us names and contact numbers of ANY of the people (still alive) he claims have guided him so that WE can substantiate this man's relationships? If he has served the people so well, this should not be a difficult task. Friends and family members should be coming forth in droves to say "Yes, we know him. We helped him. And he gave back to us, honorably, in return."

We wonder how much sleep old Tammy-hack would lose if we told him we knew several people who have given us information over the years that is exactly the opposite to his assertions about his alleged guides.

But, accountability comes in part from those potential customers who are seeking to buy anything this fraud has for sale. Caveat emptor. Buyer beware. If you or he cannot verify what he alleges about his relationships with Indigenous people, then get the hell away from this creep as fast as you can. He is lying through his teeth. And he only wants your money for his business.

Remember, long term service to the people should result in long term relationships that are easily substantiated by those he has served. Anything else is just self-serving fiction.

I don't know who you are, but I am struck by the extreme vehemence of your comments. Your writing reads like Mark Morford on steroids. I like Mark Morford because behind his rants, a clear and rational mind is evident. I do not get that same feeling from you. Your attacks are personal and mean and tell me more about you than they do about this organization and person about which you write. Whatever happened between you and this Tamarack?

Hello Fool:

Do you not have any reading comprehension skills?

Our entire blog is dedicated to what happened between us and Tamarack.

It never ceases to amaze us how whiners like you want to be spoonfed everything like the spoiled, ugly americans you are.

Piss off.

I can answer a couple of questions you pose here. First, on the subject of Keewaydinoquay...I met her and spent some wonderful times with her and had friends that knew her very, very well. Dan was an ephemeral taker that showed up around Kee, took what he could and vanished years ago. He was not her friend...ever. He even bad mouthed her at times in ways I would never repeat publicly.

As far as "fighting beside Ojibwe warriors during the Walleye wars"...another unbelievable lie. He was never at boat landings, never on the rez...NOBODY in Lac du Flambeau that was really involved during these times would have a clue who he was.

If Dan is known at all in Indian Country it is as a joke. Nobody takes him seriously and never has. He has been kicked out of gatherings, told my elders he was making people sick...this is the truth.

How do I know this? I was there--both at the drum for 5 months in 1989 and at the boat landings and in LdF as a witness for non violence during the "Walleye Wars."

Stay very, very far away from this man...he is EVIL incarnate.

Damn right, he is evil incarnate.

How good it is to hear that Ojibwe elders have told the loser to get lost. Like a lot of frauds who exploit American Indians, Dan Konen never has been able to show he has the support of local, indigenous people in struggle. No one will verify his claims, especially the further back in the past these claims go. And, a significant number of women have chosen to get the hell away from this guy as well. That's a one-two punch in our book!

Kudos, Anonymous, for sharing your experience. A groundswell of negative public opinion is building now that may very well put this man's stupid school out of business.
