The door of silence was kicked opened by AIM liberating the colonized mind of the indigenous Tetuwan Oglala lakota peoples. 41 years ago the lakotas felt social change was necessary in Indian country. Today, we will remember those who stood up against all odds. I want to thank all of our non-lakota brothers and sisters who have stood with us in resisting colonized repression. Those who gave their lives in Wounded Knee 73' and for those who have journeyed on the spirit world after the shootout. We shall remember and respect the surviving Wounded Knee 73' veterans who left before us will be honored they will all be remembered today. Power to all of the indigenous warriors for standing up for their children and grandchildren. Remember to help free Leonard Peltier.
From what I understood at the time, there were many people passionate about making a dramatic stand at Wounded Knee that would highlight everything we as Oglala Lakota and generally, Indigenous people everywhere, were suffering with and fighting against. -Sina Ikikcu Win (Takes the Robe Woman) Ethleen Iron Cloud-Two Dogs, Porcupine, SD, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation

These Indigenous players are getting attention for drawing in more diverse fans in a town that's dealt with racial tension for years. Their story is hopeful, but sometimes racism comes out at sporting events. Have you ever witnessed an act of racism at a basketball game, football game or hockey match? Can players and fans overcome those acts of racism and come together around good sportsmanship? Could sports help heal communities divided along racial lines?

Friday February is the anniversary of the occupation. In the early 1970s, tribal tensions rose and some turned to the American Indian Movement (AIM) for help. Longstanding divisions on the reservation resulted from deep-seated political, ethnic and cultural differences. Many residents did not support the tribal government. Many residents were upset about what they described as the autocratic and repressive actions by the current tribal president *** Wilson, elected in 1972. He was criticized for favoring family and friends with jobs and benefits, not consulting with the tribal council, and creating a private militia, Guardians of the Oglala Nation (GOONs), to suppress political opponents, which he paid from tribal funds. After an attempt to impeach Wilson failed, his opponents had a grassroots uprising. Women elders such as Ellen Moves Camp, founder of the Oglala Sioux Civil Rights Organization (OSCRO), called for action. They organized a public protest. About 200 AIM and Oglala Lakota activists occup ...
“Earth & Sky” 36”x 48”, acrylic on board, 2002 by Angela Babby (Oglala Lakota) “Earth & Sky” is pays homage to Klimt’s “The Kiss”. I have reinterpreted the central theme of this powerful composition in an early Lakota cultural context. The figures are personifications of nature, presented as human beings full of youth, beauty, and love in an idyllic setting. The painting is about the human search for a devotional center to our lives. The figures are perched on a small piece of prairie precipice, representing the dwindling aboriginal land base. The beadwork and the elk tooth dress are manifestations of the gifts of White Buffalo Calf Woman the Lakota Messiah. She brought the buffalo and gave them the creative and spiritual focus in their lives through her teachings. The couple is wrapped in a buffalo robe expressing the importance of the buffalo in all aspects of Lakota culture. *NOW AVAILABLE AS A GICLEE PRINT ON CANVAS ON STRETCHER BARS IN A VARIETY OF SIZES. 9"x12" $130 (framed i$220 . ...

The good road and road of difficulties you have made to cross; and where they cross, the place is holy. Day in and day out, forever, you are the life of things." Black Elk, Oglala Lakota

Crazy Horse (c. 1840-5 Sept. 1877), Oglala Lakota war chief, was born near Bear Butte in present-day South Dakota, the son of Crazy Horse, a noted Oglala warrior and medicine man, and (according to some sources) Rattle Blanket Woman, a Minicoujou Lakota of the prestigious Lone Horn family. By 1861 the boy had inherited the name Crazy Horse from his father. Believing himself informed by visions and protected by war medicines prepared by Horn Chips, a respected Oglala wicasa wakan or holy man, Crazy Horse was an extraordinarily courageous warrior who commanded the respect of both his own people and his enemies. During Oglala leader Red Cloud’s war against wagon roads, army forts, and other white incursions on Lakota lands in Wyoming and Montana in the mid-1860s, Crazy Horse demonstrated courage and remarkable skill as a leader of warriors in the Fetterman Fight at Fort Phil Kearny, the Hayfield Fight, and the Wagon Box Fight. Lakota resistance persuaded the government to cease fighting and begin the diffi ...

American Indian Philosophy is the topic for next week, dear philosopher friends! We will mainly discuss the works of Russell Means (on the picture) and Black Elk. In other words, we will focus on the world view of the Oglala Lakota. What kind of philosophy is indigenous philosophy, you might wonder... Even though this area within philosophy is almost untouched academically, it can be defended to say (if we need to put it in Western terms) that we will discuss areas related to phenomenology and hermeneutics, besides nature and political philosophy.

December 21, 1866 Indian Wars Fort Phil Kearny Massacre Part of the war of Red Cloud, the Oglala Lakota leader, after having previous successes against the United States Army, had decided to make a major offensive against the Fort before the snowfall. Numbering more than 1,000 warriors, the tribes of Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho laid a trap for the soldiers. Along the trail, the Cheyenne and Arapaho sat in wait on one side of the trail while the Lakota set on the other and used a small group of warriors as decoys led by a young Crazy Horse, to draw the U.S. troops out. The wagon train of building materials, guarded by 90 soldiers, had left and went after the decoys instead of towards the wagon train that was under attack. All of the soldiers were killed during this battle, hopelessly outnumbered and the worst loss of the U.S. Cavalry on the Plains to date.

Due to some dreams I had last night which brought up some things I've endured in the past, I feel it necessary to share my experience with others just in case it may help them in some way, so thanks for taking the time to read and share if you feel inspired to do so! A few years back, I was living on the rez (Oglala Lakota). I was lonely and suffering inside because I was fresh dealing with arbitrary separation from my children via the court systems. As a result, I wasn't on top of my game and soon got into a relationship with a man who proclaimed to love me, yet he became so abusive he nearly killed me. I remember being so terrified of him that my entire body would shake every time the hint of his jealousy would appear. For my 30th birthday, he gifted me with the worst beating of my life, nearly breaking my ribs and arms and face simply because he heard me talking with joy to my twin brother. I couldn't get up out of bed by myself for days, and just when I was about able to, he'd do it all over again. I ...

I was raised to be respectful, kind, and a sensitive person thats how I grew up I kno about my family tree where I come from and the history of my culture..

12/15/2013 6:58:00 PM MAYVILLE, ND – The Mayville State men's basketball team defeated the Oglala Lakota College Bravehearts 99-57 on Sunday afternoon at the Lewey Lee Fieldhouse in Mayville, ND. It was the second match-up of these two teams in as many days. The Comets made a statement by outscoring the Bravehearts 60-24 in the first half, which was a bigger advantage than the final score of the first game (MSU 76, OLC 53). The Comets kept that momentum going in the second half as they finished the game with a 99-57 victory that featured 50 points from the bench. Michael Lindsay had a great game for Mayville State, turning in a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Lindsay was 7-of-11 from the floor and also had two steals and two assists. Bench production was key for MSU in this one and Colin Fitz was a big part of that. Fitz scored 15 points (5-for-9 FGs) and grabbed four rebounds. David Olson followed with 12 points (5-for-8 FGs) and three rebounds. Charlton Wilson was very effective as a st ...
"It is well to be good to women in the strength of our manhood because we must sit under their hands at both ends of our lives." ~He Dog, OGLALA LAKOTA~ The women bring us into this life and nurture us as we grow up. When we reach our manhood, she supports us and sings the songs to help the family grow. The Elders say we must look at the woman in a sacred way. We must realize how special her powers are in brining forth life. The woman will bring balance to a man. The woman will help him see. It is said, behind every successful man is a supporting woman. Maybe we should examine how we are thinking about women. The Great Spirit says we should honor them. Are we respecting and honoring our women today? Grandmother, Grandfather thank you for our women. Today, let me honor them.

Crazy Horse or Tȟašúŋke Witkó (1840 – September 5, 1877) Oglala Lakota. He took up arms against the U.S. Federal government to fight against encroachments on the territories and way of life of the Lakota people, including leading a war party to victory at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in June 1876. Four months after surrendering to U.S. troops under General Crook in May 1877, Crazy Horse was fatally wounded by a military guard, using his bayonet, while allegedly resisting imprisonment at Camp Robinson in present-day Nebraska. He ranks among the most notable and iconic of Native American tribal members and has been honored by the U.S. Postal Service with a 13¢ Great Americans series postage stamp. Sources differ on the precise year of Crazy Horse's birth, but they agree he was born between 1840 and 1845. According to a close friend, he and Crazy Horse "were both born in the same year at the same season of the year", which census records and other interviews place at about 1845. Encouraging Bear, ...

Karlene Hunter (Oglala Lakota), CEO and co-founder of Native American Natural Foods, was recently at the White House for a tribal summit. Native American Natural Foods is best known for its Tanka Bar, a natural food based on traditional Lakota recipe of buffalo and fruit.

I'm very pleases to wish you a happy Monday morning. With a proper Sunday, Monday's can be one of the very best days of the week. A day of worship and rest really make for good start to the work week. I know, believe me! B.J. and I recently rented a movie from the Bozeman Public Library. This movie, "Incident at Oglala", affected me, pulled at my spirit. I was inspired to investigate. My investigation did more than pulled at my spirit, it messed me up! Before you balk at the length of my post this morning or decide to read this later, STOP. YOUR PRAYERS ARE NEEDED! We have some neighbors doing very bad. (The facts I'm sharing are from various online sources, and I cannot guarantee that all are 100% accurate, nor can the sources. There are major discrepancies in population estimates and other information, but the picture will be crystal clear.) Thank you and may God bless you. * The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation- South Dakota * The Pine Ridge Oglala Lakota (Sioux) Indian Reservation sits in Bennett, J ...

They are here on FB and you will see their names on the PUBLIC DOCUMENTS I will be posting this weekend!

Early career USA lost a war to {Red Cloud}..! Look it up.. 1868 "Much of Red Cloud's early life was spent at war, first and most often against the neighboring Pawnee and Crow, and at other times, against other Oglala. Red Cloud proved his medicine was powerful at age 16 when he survived a near-fatal arrow wound in his ribs. He counted coup* more than 80 times, and coaxed 4,000 warriors from various tribes to ally with him against the white men. In 1841, Red Cloud killed one of his uncle's primary rivals; the slaying caused dissension among the Oglala that persisted for years to come. He gained enormous prominence within the Lakota nation for his leadership in territorial wars against the Pawnees, Crows, Utes, and Shoshones. Young Red Cloud developed a reputation for both bravery and cruelty. His stature among the Oglala Sioux rose early, his having acquired a reputation as a fierce warrior and a man of pronounced ruthlessness to enemies of his people, particularly in campaigns against the Pawnees. The Boz ...
Clarence Wolf Guts Last Lakota Code Talker Dies Todd County Tribune Last Lakota code talker Clarence Wolf Guts dies at 86 When the towers of the World Trade Center fell on Sept. 11, 2001, Clarence Wolf Guts asked his son to call the U.S. Department of Defense to see if the country needed his code talking abilities to find Osama Bin Laden. Wolf Guts was in his late 70s at the time, so his son, Don Doyle, did not make the call, but said the request personified his father's love of country. "He still wanted to help. He was trying to still be patriotic," Doyle said. Wolf Guts, 86, the last surviving Oglala Lakota code talker, died Wednesday afternoon at the South Dakota State Veterans Home in Hot Springs. A Native American code talker from World War II, Wolf Guts helped defeat Axis forces by transmitting strategic military messages in his native language, which the Japanese and Germans couldn't translate. "He's the last surviving code talker from the whole (Lakota) nation. It's going to be a little like the p ...

Our Oglala Lakota ancestors lived totally immersed in nature and in a time when everything was right in their world however, it meant there was always another understanding to seek. This search for understanding came to those younger ones who listened carefully.
Our Oglala Lakota ancestors saw colors of sunrise and sunset and internalized the wonder of it all and what these colors brought to the living world as sacred movement (Taku Skanskan). This sacred movement we can attempt to understand today but has depth beyond what we know. Their form of self-actualization (wicouncage) back then was civilized.

AIM's leaders spoke out against injustices against their peoples, as had the African-American leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. AIM leaders talked about high unemployment, slum housing, and racist treatment, fought for treaty rights and the reclamation of tribal land, and advocated on behalf of urban Indians. With its provocative events and advocacy for Indian rights, AIM attracted scrutiny from the Department of Justice (DOJ).[13] The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) used paid informants to report on AIM’s activities and its members.[14][15] In February 1973, AIM leaders Russell Means and Dennis Banks worked with Oglala Lakota people and AIM activists to occupy the small Indian community of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, on the Pine Ridge Reservation. They were protesting its corrupt government, federal issues, and the lack of justice from border counties. The FBI dispatched agents and US Marshals to cordon off the site. Later a higher-ranking DOJ representative took control of the US government' ...
The American Indian Movement (AIM) is a Native American activist organization in the United States, founded in 1968 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with an agenda that focuses on spirituality, leadership, and sovereignty. The founders included Dennis Banks, George Mitchell, Herb Powless, Clyde Bellecourt, Harold Goodsky, Eddie Benton-Banai, and a number of others in the Minneapolis Native American community.[1] Russell Means, born Oglala Lakota, was an early leader in 1970s protests. The organization was formed to address various issues concerning the Native American urban community in Minneapolis, including poverty, housing, treaty issues, and police harassment.[2] From its beginnings in Minnesota, AIM soon attracted members from across the United States (and Canada). It participated in the Rainbow Coalition organized by the civil rights activist Fred Hampton. Charles Deegan Sr. was involved with the AIM Patrol. In October 1971 AIM gathered members from across the country to a protest in Washington, D.C. know ...

In 1968 Banks co-founded the American Indian Movement (AIM) in Minneapolis. They were seeking to ensure and protect the civil rights of Native Americans living in urban areas, whom they believed were being discriminated against by law enforcement. Their related goals became to protect the traditional ways of Indian people and to engage in legal cases protecting treaty rights of Natives, such as hunting and fishing, trapping, and wild rice farming. Banks participated in the 1969–1971 occupation of Alcatraz Island, initiated by Indian students from San Francisco of the Red Power movement, and intended to highlight Native American issues and promote Indian sovereignty on their own lands. In 1972 he assisted in the organization of AIM's "Trail of Broken Treaties", a caravan of numerous activist groups across the United States to Washington, D.C. to call attention to the plight of Native Americans. The caravan members anticipated meeting with United States Congress leaders about related issues; but governmen ...

As spiritual beings, our Oglala Lakota ancestors emitted paramagnetic energy in ceremony. Operating in this frequency of energy, attracted the same source of energy field from life that surrounded them. For this reason, it was easily understood life was all interrelated and how life sustained other life forms. In a nutshell, all life needs other life forms. For example, if the bear, wolf, or giant Redwood trees are taken out of the equation, we will become unfulfilled as human beings.

Good Evening my friends and family. The past two days have been overflowing with blessings abundant. Starting with an inspiring speech by Oglala Tribal President Bryan Brewer on Sunday night and ending with the Angelic voice of Manape LaMere as he ended the evening with song. It was a treat to finally meet this talented and strong young man. That evening I hosted fellow activists for the evening and attended the press conference at the Nebraska State Bldg. I am ashamed and sickened at the dismissive actions of our Governor. Then a quick visit to the liquor commission to add just a little more contempt to the fires already brewing inside me. I plan on checking in, via phone and in person every day to ask what our Liquor Commission has done to enforce the laws being broken on a daily basis in White Clay. Then I opened up my heart and my home and brought my Lakota brothers and sisters to my home, to feed them before the long journey back to Pine Ridge. It was an honor and a treat to host these strong ...

By the Dawes Allotment Act, a listing of tribal members was made prior to allocation of land to individual households. (The Dawes Rolls became the basis of some tribe's qualifications for membership.) The government allocated 320 acre (1.3 km²) parcels to heads of families, and declared any remaining land as "surplus". The allotment of individual parcels and other measures reduced the total land in Indian ownership, while the government tried to force the people to convert to the lifestyles of farmers and craftsmen. The allocations were not based on accurate knowledge of whether the arid lands were sustainable for the family farms which the government envisioned, and experience has shown that to be an unsuccessful experiment for the Lakota and most homesteaders alike. Self-styled experts recommended regular tilling of the soil to attract moisture from the sky.[2] It turned out that the Plains were settled during a wetter than normal period. Combined with inappropriate farming techniques and more normal d ...

At the beginning of the Great Sioux War of 1876-77, Touch the Clouds stayed with his band at the Cheyenne River Agency through that summer. Shortly after word of Custer’s defeat at the Little Bighorn reached the reservation, Touch the Clouds pleaded with army officers at the nearby post: “Have compassion on us. Don’t punish us all because some of us fought when we had to.” [6] Believing that agency bands were supporting the "hostiles", the army prepared to disarm the friendly Lakota and confiscate their ponies. In late September 1876, suspicious of the Army’s intentions, Touch the Clouds led a breakout of Minneconjou and Sans Arc who fled the agency, abandoning their lodgepoles and other possessions in their hurried flight north. The arrival of these refugees, including Touch the Clouds, Roman Nose, Bull Eagle, Spotted Elk and other headmen, introduced a more moderate element into the leadership of the northern villages. In October 1876, the combined force fought troops in several skirmishes alo ...

The deadline came without a word from the Oglala Sioux Tribe, so the owner of the site of the Wounded Knee Massacre, has put it on the open market.
That taser has one, maybe two charges in it there copper... And Lakota Natives are rather large men. I would be sure you were FAST on the trigger. Because if I were among that crowd, I would give you the *** STOMPING of your life if it were my family I were protecting against profits of rich fat cats. = A cop holds a taser to the neck of a Lakota man who was attempting to block two Budweiser trucks from entering White Clay, Nebraska. Many of the people of the Pine Ridge Reservation have been focusing a lot lately on shutting down the town of White Clay, Nebraska, just off the reservation. Existing only to sell beer and liquor, largely to people suffering from alcoholism, White Clay profits from addiction and death. Alcoholism causes rampant social problems on Pine Ridge and elsewhere, such as abuse of children and deaths from drunk driving. People gathered at the Zero Tolerance Camp at the edge of the reservation, bordering White Clay. Here, people have been camping out to maintain a continued presence, a ...
The prophecies are coming true, this White Bufallo calf was born on July 4th Independence day for western Americans (not for Native Americans). This is the same day our Chief and Leader of the Oglala Lakota people Cheif Oliver Red Cloud made his journey on the Holy road. This is big medicine, please share this, we must spread the word! *** hecetu wi ye. Shunkaha Wanagiwin
Awesome! A new white baby buffalo born on 7-4-13!

Our Oglala Lakota scientists understood what mattered most is how one lived their life on earth. Their seven principles gifted them the ability to live the type of life needed to sustain life not only for themselves, but for other inhabitants in their region as well. If one promoted this type of lifestyle, their world will prosper and grow.
I think it is highly significant that the Oglala Lakota leader, Oliver Red Cloud, passes from this world & the same day a white buffalo calf is born.it is going to be a strong year ahead! prayers all around.
Hello Relatives I went to high school, then called Holy Rosary Mission. My parents went to school at boarding school OCS,Oglala Community School. My parents were little when they were put in boarding school. I have to tell terrible stories, born 1921,both of them. Early in the century. My dad and mother both have stores of punishment, that was torture, when caught talking Lakota they had to kneel down on their knees,with their arms outstretched shoulder level. WHen they got tired and their arms came down to their sides. The teacher would hit their hands and fingers, with a ruler that had a copper lining the edge. OH my , my mom was very very thin, when she spoke Lakota ,straight bed with only bread and water for supper, she was being starved , now this has hurt my feelings a long long time. THis still brings a tear to the eyes,no matter how many times I told this stories of my parents educational experience. My parents era there was serious epidemic again,called TB tuberculosis. THere was no cure,or pre . ...

Religion is terrible. If humanity plans to grow as a whole we need to get rid of it. Adam and eve obviously didnt populate the Earth. Thats obsurd. If you are christian, you dont get to chose which parts of the bible to believe. Believe it all or believe none of it. It is so easy to see how false the bible is. Should i mention we found multiple radio signals from outside our galaxy a few days back? If there is a God why do 30 children starve each day? Wake up. Try some deep thought. Escape the indoctrination.

I have sadly been informed today that Chief Oliver Red Cloud, chief of the Oglala Sioux Nation passed away on the 4th of July. I had spoken with him on several occasions and found him to be one of the most pleasant gentleman that I have ever met. While we celebrated our independence he passed probably wondering when his people, all Native Americans, would be able to celebrate their independence. How can America celebrate freedom when they sit and hold a whole nation of people's captive in poverty and prejudice. We are so proud to be Americans but we still can not seem to master the art of being human beings.
These are pictures of the Oglala Lakota Chief, "Crazy Horse"...what he actually looked like.
“Friends, it has been our misfortune to welcome the white man. We have been deceived. He brought with him some shining things that pleased our eyes; he brought weapons more effective than our own: above all, he brought the spirit water that makes one forget for a time old age, weakness, and sorrow. But I wish to say to you that if you would possess these things for yourselves, you must begin anew and put away the wisdom of your fathers. You must lay up food, and forget the hungry. When your house is built, your storeroom filled, then look around for a neighbor whom you can take at a disadvantage, and seize all that he has! Give away only what you do not want; or rather, do not part with any of your possessions unless in exchange for another’s. My countrymen, shall the glittering trinkets of this rich man, his deceitful drink that overcomes the mind, shall these things tempt us to give up our homes, our hunting grounds, and the honorable teaching of our old men? Shall we permit ourselves to be driven t ...

Adrienne K. from Native Appropriations about Gil Birmingham in the Lone Rangers: "I was distracted by the fact that Gil Birmingham, who actually *is* Comanche was sitting there with face and body paint on and doesn’t. have. any. lines. My dad compared it to Civil War movies where they have the Black regiment march by in a scene as a “oh, see, we thought about the POC!” moment. I feel like his cameo was an attempt to show they had Native actor involvement despite the lack of any depth of character."
