Oglala Sioux

The Oglala Lakota or Oglala Sioux (meaning to scatter one's own in Lakota language) are one of the seven subtribes of the Lakota people, who along with the Nakota and Dakota, they make up the Great Sioux Nation.

Surrendering Guaranteed Indian Land for Rations From: bernhard1848 By 1875 the remaining sovereign Indian tribes were decimated by the relentless hordes of army soldiers; loss of food and shelter, and kept constantly on the move and in fear of surprise attacks, they ultimately preferred the detestable reservation life to cold and hunger. Sherman and Sheridan’s total-war strategy against the American Indian had been validated. Bernhard Thuersam, Surrendering Guaranteed Indian Land for Rations “The national stage of the United States in 1877 held a great variety of actors and actions. The values of the Indians opposed the values of white men. The purposes of farmer and banker, of factory worker and industrialist, of railroad president and merchant, often clashed. [This era saw] industrial bureaucracies such as Standard Oil [clash with] the hunting cultures of some Indians. Crazy Horse was a great war chief of the Oglala Sioux. About 35 years old in 1877, he had been the leader of t ...
Black Elk's Vision [The following is taken from the book "Black Elk Speaks", by John G. Neihardt (New York: Washington Square Press, 1972), originally published in 1932. The book is Neihardt's recreation in English of the oral history that Black Elk, a medicine man (or "shaman," of the Oglala Sioux Indians, recounted for him in the Sioux language in 1931. These are selected chapters and sections of chapters that deal most directly with Black Elk's visions and this ritual enactment of them for his tribe.] Chapter 3: The Great Vision What happened after that until the summer I was nine years old is not a story. There were winters and summers, and they were good; for the Wasichus had made their iron road along the Platte and traveled there. This had cut the bison herd in two, but those that stayed in our country with us were more than could be counted, and we wandered without trouble in our land. Now and then the voices would come back when I was out alone, like someone calling me, but what they wanted me to ...
The Democratic Party in South Dakota suffers from one singular problem: We do not support Democratic candidates like they need to be supported. Without a viable mechanism to do so, all the policy, the bridge-building, etc., is practically useless. Without supporting people for the most local of offices (political offices or not), we do not develop a talent pool of those we can mentor through the various levels of government. I believe this even has repercussions for the types of Republicans that end up in office, because Republicans only have sheer numbers and dollars on their side. They aren't organized. If they were, our good, staunch, moderate Republicans wouldn't be forced to vote for crazies like Phil Jensen and Betty Olson. Yesterday in Rapid City, at Shelter 50, a group of folks organized by Bajun R. Mavalwalla, a retired military veteran and political strategist not from South Dakota, came together. At the table we had staunch pillars of the Pennington County Democrats, we had a large group of fol ...
"The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the hand that fashioned the continent also fashioned the man for his surroundings. He once grew as naturally as the wild sunflowers, he belongs just as the buffalo." Chief Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Sioux

Lakota Sioux demonstrators protest plans at Badlands National Park by George Lauby (North Platte Bulletin) On Wednesday, residents of the Pine Ridge Reservation are expected to gather at Wounded Knee to protest a planned federal park arrangement that they say will strip them of their deeded land. Wednesday is the anniversary of the battle at the Little Big Horn between General George Custer, the Northern Cheyenne and the Lakota Sioux, a synchronicity that protestors hope is not lost on the public. According to a statement issued June 20, the Oglala Sioux and Lakota Sioux of the reservation have been told the federal government will be taking land that comprises the “South Unit of the Badlands National Park.” According to the statement, the tribe would also lose the income from grazing allotments on the land and income from the north gate fees of the Badlands National Park. Changes in the management of the Badland National Park’s south unit have been planned for several years by the National Park Ser ...

She is accused of causing the Omaha Indian boy's death in late 2006 but had not been arrested. Although authorities would not discuss her whereabouts, public documents indicate Vega and her husband, Carlos, live in the eastern Pennsylvania town of Oaks. Nathaniel's biological family says the boy deserves justice. "Any time a life is lost, you want answers," said Eleanor Baxter, Nathaniel's great-grandmother. "So far we haven't got answers." Authorities initially provided little information about efforts to find Vega. However, the Dakota County Sheriff's Office said officials were attempting to contact Pennsylvania authorities after the Journal provided information about the Oaks address. The circumstances surrounding Nathaniel's ...

***Breaking News in Indian Country*** Pine Ridge Reservation has passed a resolution banning TransCanada Pipeline official, Phil Fontaine, from entering it's territory. As a Sundancer who travels to Pine Ridge for ceremony each year, I have the utmost respect for the Oglala Sioux people. Each year, I've seen first hand a very high percentage of community members living in dire straights and poverty. I've also witnessed the people's strength and sense of traditional values, their hilarious and uplifting humor, and their love and respect for the land and ancestral teachings. Reading about the community rejecting and firmly opposing a pipeline from ripping through their territory (although they can gain temporary $) didn't come as a huge shock to me as the Oglala Sioux have always stood to protect their land, water, children and way of life. In case you forgot or didn't know, Pine Ridge community members have fought and died for their treaties and land. During US Govt land disputes, respectable leader and Ch ...

WASHINGTON, DC – As part of President Obama’s commitment to help strengthen Native American communities, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs Kevin Washburn today announced cooperative agreements with the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) of the Flathead Reservation and the Northern Cheyenne Tribe, both located in Montana, for continued collaborative implementation of the Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations (Buy-Back Program) on their reservations. The Buy-Back Program will purchase trust or restricted interests from willing sellers and transfer those interests to the tribes in order to unlock lands for tribal development and other priorities. Secretary Jewell met with CSKT Chairman Ronald Trahan today to commemorate the new cooperative agreement and underscore the Program’s commitment to government-to-government partnerships. The CSKT and Northern Cheyenne agreements, the second and third under the Buy-Back Program, will provide resour ...

More Proof: "You have noticed that everything as Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. The Sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves." - Black Elk Oglala Sioux Holy Man, year: 1868-1937.

"Oglala Sioux-owned Native American Natural Foods—maker of the delicious buffalo jerky and cranberry bar, known as the Tanka Bar, among many other 100 percent natural, low-calorie, low-carb, high-energy foods—is available on 375 of the more than 550 American Indian reservations in the U.S., reported the Associated Press." And creating jobs on the reservation.
Everything That Is. Red Cloud was the most significant American Indian leader in the 19th century—and arguably in the history of the North American continent. Not only was he the sole warrior-chief to defeat the United States in a war—not in a single battle, but in the eponymous Red Cloud’s War—but his historical victory would’ve dramatically changed the lives of Indian Americans for the better had the ensuing treaty been honored by the U.S. government in 1868. Red Cloud ascended from humble beginnings to the leadership of the most powerful tribe on the Western Plains, the Oglala Sioux. He also became the first American Indian to form a coalition of Native Peoples to fend off the encroaching whites. At the height of his power, Red Cloud’s “empire” spanned one-fifth of the contiguous United States, running east from Minnesota to the Rocky Mountains and fanning south from Montana and the Dakota Territory through Wyoming and Nebraska and edging into modern-day Utah and Colorado.

This morning I want to talk about my granddaughter Arianna Steele, 12 years old. Arianna lives in Pine Ridge village with her grandparents and her father. Arianna's mother was murdered by her own niece in Rapid City, SD. She is motherless, without income but continues to attend school and sings on KILI radio station on Sunday mornings. I fought to make sure every Porcupine District member received the Salazar money. This money is blood money cheated out of our ancestors in the rough figure of 11 billion dollars and settled for 3.4 billion dollars. My granddaughter didn't receive her share of the Salazar money because she lived in Pine Ridge village. Her grand parents are original Porcupine District members. Arianna's representatives of Pine Ridge village didn't speak up for children like Arianna so they are the district that didn't get any personal checks to spend. This council people made a very crucial decision of equal distribution of one million dollars per district knowing very well the Pine Ridge vi ...

I did not know at that time that was the end of many things. When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I still see the butchered women and children, heaped and scattered along the ravine in a zig-zag pattern, as clearly as I saw them with my own eyes as a young man. And I can see that something else died with them up there on the bloody snow, and was buried in the blizzard. There died the dream of a people. It was a beautiful dream. The circle of the nation is broken and its fragments are scattered. The circle has no center and the sacred tree is dead. Black Elk - Oglala Sioux
Complaint on Oglala Sioux Tribe Secretary Rhonda Two Eagle We the undersigned Porcupine District Members were waiting for our Salazar checks and gathered at the Porcupine District CAP Office. When OST secretary Rhonda Two Eagle Requested the Public Safety Officers to forcibly remove everyone from the Porcupine District CAP office, for rioting and protesting. Had OST President Brian Brewer not insisted that he be arrested instead of the Oyate, many innocent Elders families and children could have been injured. We file this complaint based on the Oglala Sioux Tribe personnel policies and procedural manual , Sec XI. OFFENSE 13: “ Creating or being involved in workplace violence”.

Chief Red Cloud--Cayuga. biography A political leader and a fierce warrior, Red Cloud, chief of the Oglala Sioux, fought unsuccessfully to save his people and their land from being seized by whites. Born in 1822 in what was then Nebraska Territory, Red Cloud was named Mahpiua-Luta at birth. He became a chief after showing leadership and bravery in battles against the Oglala's traditional enemies, the Pawnees, Crows, Utes, and Shoshones. He also divided the Oglala by killing the rival of his uncle, another tribal leader. When white settlers discovered gold in Montana in the early 1860's, they began to build a road from Fort Laramie in present-day Wyoming to the gold fields. They also constructed a series of forts to protect the road, which became known as the Bozeman Trail. Starting in 1865, Red Cloud led the Oglala and the Cheyenne in a war against white soldiers, miners, and settlers on the Bozeman Trail. After a two-year fight, Red Cloud and his soldiers forced the U.S. to abandon its forts and stop bui ...
Every sunrise is a sacred event and every day is holy, for the light comes from the Great Spirit. And you must also remember that all the people who are standing on this earth are sacred and should be treated as such. Quote by Black Elk - Oglala Sioux
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 ...

Ray Cayton This is how COWARDS fight wars! Join us and share: all of the animals used for food, clothing and shelter and then give men, women and children food, blankets and medicines with diseases in them because they can't fight like men! The TRUE Founding fathers of "America" were apart of the tribes that have been here for centuries! If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this picture is worth many thousands of bison. This photo from the 1870s shows a man proudly standing in front of a mountain of tens of thousands of bison skulls - an iconic American species that was systematically slaughtered by the millions as European Americans settled the west. The US Army actively endorsed the wholesale slaughter of these animals for two main reasons: to remove any competition with cattle, and to starve Native American tribes who greatly depended on the bison for food. Without the bison, the resisting tribes of the Great Plains would either be forced to leave or die of starvation. "Upon suffering beyond su ...

Please inform your people from the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota peoples and also about this meeting that will be held in protest of the the illegal negotiations/act of a few people selling our Black Hills!!! FYI: The Lakota Advocates will be meeting on Sunday, November 17, 2013 @ 12:00 PM in the Elderly Nutrition Center, Eagle Butte, SD (Potluck to feed our guests) with several Naca's, Headsmen, Chiefs over the devastating illegal act the IRA on Red Cloud Agency aka Oglala Sioux Tribe headed by their IRA attorney is doing in the sale of the Black Hills without the consultation of the Tetuwan Nation aka the Great Sioux Nation!!! Some of the things to think of are: Where will the grassroots people go to pray, to hanbleceya, to hold annual Sun Dances, to pick medicine, fruits? What or where can our children and those unborn call home? Treaty boundaries are supreme law of the land, Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution and are to be as long as the grass grows and the rivers flow!!! Please share, spread far and wide!!! . ...
