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 ...

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” ― Black Elk, Oglala Sioux

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.

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.

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. I have selected those chapters and sections of chapters that deal most directly with Black Elk’s visions and this ritual enactment of them for his tribe.] While I was eating, a voice came and said: “It is time; now they are calling you.” The voice was so loud and clear that I believed it, and I thought I would just go where it wanted me to go. So I got right up and started. As I came out of the tepee, both my thighs began to hurt me, and suddenly it was like waking from a dream, and there wasn’t any voice. So I went back into the tepee, but I didn’t want to eat. Man Hip looked at me in a strange way and asked me what was wrong. I told him ...
I have like a million hours to go, but pretty happy with this so far.

Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and you are older than all need, older than all prayer. All things belong to you - the two - legged, the four - legged, the wings of the air, and all green things that live. You have set the powers of the four quarters of the earth to cross each other. You have made me cross the good road, and the road of difficulties, and where they cross, the place is holy. Day in, day out, forevermore, you are the life of things. Black Elk ~ Oglala Sioux My grandfathers have always heard my prayers and they will continue to do so, for I have lived my life in a good way. Creator is also merciful and vengeful for those too weak to defend themselves. I respect that and believe in that. Hiy Hiy.

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

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.

Ray Cayton This is how COWARDS fight wars!

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 ...

"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 belonged." ~ Luther Standing Bear Oglala Sioux (1868-1937)
Black Elk Speaks ~ "Then all at once great happiness overcame me and it all took hold of me right there. This was to remind me to get to work at once and help to bring my people back into the sacred hoop, that they might again walk the red road in a sacred manner pleasing to the Powers of the Universe that are One Power. I remembered how the spirits had taken me to the centre of the earth and shown me the good things, and how my people should prosper. I remembered how the Six Grandfathers had told me that through their power I should make my people live and the holy tree should bloom. I believed my vision was coming true at last, and happiness overcame me." ~ Black Elk, Oglala Sioux
Like attracts like. If we give up, so will others. If we cry, so will they. But if we decide this is a new beginning, others will take courage. We influence other people. Our attitudes send out ripples of feeling - like the scent of flowers that floats on air currents. What we think and say sets the stage for what is to happen. We can change our minds, our words, our attitudes, and we stop crying. We act like our prayers are already answered and take steps to show we believe it. When the early morning sun breaks through the far side of the woods, the dark places are lighted and much healing takes place. And so it is with us. ~ Black Elk, Oglala Sioux (1863 - 1950)
All things are our relatives. ~ Black Elk, Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux

Oglala Sioux, National Park Service draft legislation to create first tribal national park ^ja
In the Badlands, a tribe helps buffalo make a comeback By Juliet Eilperin BADLANDS NATIONAL PARK, S.D. — Buffalo stroll undisturbed, pausing occasionally to wallow in the grass and caked dirt, while prairie dogs yip intermittently as they dive into their holes and pop out again to survey the landscape. This northern stretch of the park, known as Sage Creek Wilderness, is what the Northern Great Plains used to look like. Several miles away, in the park’s 133,300-acre South Unit, located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, the scene is more barren. The U.S. Army forced more than 800 Oglala Sioux families to leave their homes here in 1942 so that part of the reservation could be turned into a bombing range. The land has partially recovered, but the bison have yet to return. That could soon change. The Oglala Sioux and National Park Service are drafting legislation to create the first tribal national park — giving the tribe the right to manage and operate the lands — in an effort to bring buffalo ba ...
"But in the Indian Spirit the land is still vested; it will be until other men are able to divine and meet its rhythm. Men must be born and reborn to belong. Their bodies must be formed of the dust of their forefathers' bones." -- Luther Standing Bear, OGLALA SIOUX It is said when we walk on the Earth, we are walking on our ancestors and our unborn children. This is the relationship Native People have with the Earth. It is this relationship which gives insight into the Earth's rhythm and heartbeat and creates the feeling of belonging. If you feel you belong to something, you'll treat it with respect. If you feel you are above something, you'll treat it with disrespect. Indian Spirituality is tied to the Earth. We belong to the Earth along with all other creatures on the Earth. We must align to this realization. Great Spirit, today, teach me to respect the Earth Mother.
Training began with children who were taught to sit still and enjoy it. They were taught to use their organs of smell, to look when there was apparently nothing to see, and to listen intently when all seemingly was quiet. A child that cannot sit still is a half-developed child. -Luther Standing Bear, OGLALA SIOUX, 1868-1937
Siouan language speakers may have originated in the lower Mississippi River region and then migrated to or originated in the Ohio Valley. They were agriculturalists and may have been part of the Mound Builder civilization during the 9th–12th centuries CE.[1] In the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Dakota-Lakota-Nakota speakers lived in the upper Mississippi Region in present day Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas. Conflicts with Anishnaabe and Cree peoples pushed the Lakota west onto the Great Plains in the mid- to late-17th century.[1] Early Lakota history is recorded in their Winter counts (Lakota: waníyetu wówapi), pictorial calendars painted on hides or later recorded on paper. The Battiste Good winter count records Lakota history back to 900 CE, when White Buffalo Calf Woman gave the Lakota people the White Buffalo Calf Pipe.[3] Around 1730, Cheyenne people introduced the Lakota to horses,[4] called šuŋkawakaŋ ("dog [of] power/mystery/wonder"). After their adoption of horse culture ...

The Lakota are the westernmost of the three Siouan language groups, occupying lands in both North and South Dakota. The seven bands or "sub-tribes" of the Lakota are: Sičháŋǧu (Brulé, Burned Thighs)[1] Oglála ("They Scatter Their Own")[1] Itázip *** (Sans Arc, Without Bows)[1] Húŋkpapȟa ("End Village",[1] Camps at the End of the Camp Circle) Mnikȟówožu ("Plant beside the Stream",[1] Planters by the Water) Sihásapa ("Black Feet")[1] Oóhenuŋpa (Two Kettles)[1] Notable persons include Tȟatȟáŋka Íyotake (Sitting Bull) from the Húnkpapȟa band; Touch the Clouds from the Miniconjou band; and, Tȟašúŋke Witkó (Cr ...

Pine Ridge INDIAN RESERVATON With a referendum looming on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation for its citizens to vote on whether or not to legalize sale of alcoholic
wow. folks on Pine Ridge are going to have the chance to vote whether alcohol should be allowed on the reservation. at least some of the conflict stems from a standoff that has been taking place for several months now around the the town of Whiteclay, Nebraska. Its a town on the Nebraska side of the border from Pine Ridge, a town with a population listed in the last census of '14' that sells a reported 10,000 cans of beer a day. The president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, Brian Brewer has been standing with those who want Whiteclay shut down since March of this year and was arrested 2 days ago while standing with peaceful protesters blocking a delivery of beer to a Whiteclay liquor store. Curious curious times in Lakotah land.

BEECHER ISLAND PRESENTATION - JUNE 23, 2-4 pm On the 17th of September, 1869, was fought the hardest battle between the white men and the plains Indians in the annals of the West. Fought on the Arickaree fork of the Republican River, fifty-one scouts and frontiersmen under the command of Lieutenant George A. Forsyth stood off, on a little sandbar in the river, the combined forces of the Northern Cheyenne, Arapaho and Oglala Sioux for nine days. They lost more than one third their own number in killed and wounded, while the Indian loss was many times as great Join The Phillips County Museum as Dave Belke gives an informative presentation on this famous battle that took place not far from Wray, Colorado.

They both work at The Museum of the American Indian and I hope to visit one day.
I might be late to the posting party about Bryan Brewer being arrested. Although, he was released. I get that he wants the beer delivery workers to notdrop off their shipments. I, personally think that alcohol should be legalized on this reservation. I don't drink, but i'm sure the tax, is money that this reservation could use. I don't know much about it. I don't know if the Oglala Sioux president is trying to start a movement, or not. But an Oglalaactivist, Olowan Martinez had said: "They probably assum that if the take out our leadership we'll leave." A movement does take a leader to start, but you cannot rely on the leader to keep it going. When starting a movement, the followers must be welcomed by the leader as equal. So that they must have the willpower to keep the movement going strong. Leadership is overglorified. Sure, the President of our tribe was first, and he will get all of the credit .. But if was really the first follower(s) the lone President into a leader. I really don't know why i'm pos ...

Hau Kathleen, Lila pila miya (much thanks) for compassion and for being a woman of action. Our family is currently living in a very small 30 year trailer house, which we are thankful as it is a roof over our heads. However, it is in no way suitable for residential living, but is much rather a temporary shelter to prevent us from homeless. As you may be aware, the Oglala Sioux Tribe actually took a reservation house on a flatbed to Washington, DC last month to show the federal government and American citizens the status of deplorable housing conditions here on the Pine Ridge Reservation. This demonstration of need reflects the insufficient funding the federal government provides to our people. According to their numbers, there are currently 6,000 families in need of housing. This may not improve for years with the governments recent budget cuts, which sadly, impact our people more than most as we are already in the poorest county in the nation.

Six Sioux Tribes are banding together to develop the largest wind power production facility in the United States. The Midwest has been called “the Saudi Arabia of wind power,” and the northern Great Plains has enough wind resources to meet the entire energy demand of the United States several times over. Six South Dakota Sioux Tribes – the Cheyenne River, Crow Creek, Oglala, Rosebud, Sisseton Wahpeton, and Yankton Tribes – have decided to pool their considerable wind power resources to create the largest utility-grade wind installation in the country – a Project funded by $1.75-3 Billion in bonds issued through a multi-Tribal power authority. This Project completely changes the model for developing wind power in the U.S. Previously, large wind projects were funded by private equity – this means that it is expensive money (equity investors require double-digit returns), and it means that the project is owned by the investors. But this Project will use bond financing – bond rates are at histor ...
"Is not the sky a father and the earth a mother, and are not all living things with feet or wings or roots their children?" Black Elk (Oglala Sioux)
I know of no species of plant, bird, or animal that were exterminated until the coming of the white man. The white man considered natural animal life upon this continent, as "pest." There is no word in the Lakota vocabulary with the English meaning of this word...[the Indian] was...kin to all living things and he gave to all creatures equal rights with himself [To the white man] the worth and right to live were his. Forest were mowed down, the buffalo were exterminated, the beaver driven to extinction and his wonderfully constucted dams dynamited. Springs, streams, and lakes that lived no longer ago than my boyhood have dried, and a whole people harassed to degradation and death. The white man has become the symbol of extinction for all things natural to this continent. Between him and the animal there is no rapport.--Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Sioux, 1868-1937

(Tashunka Witco, Tashunca-Uitco, "his horse is crazy"). These are the words of a great Indian hero. Crazy Horse was born in 1844 as an Oglala Sioux. He was the son of an Oglala medicine man of the same name and his Brule wife, the sister of Spotted Tail. His first name was Curly, after his father, but after his first war-deed at a young age gave him the name Crazy Horse. He had light skin and hair with a very quiet manner. He was not half white as some say, nor was he a captured white boy as others say, many Indians of his tribe were just like him. He also had unusual spiritual powers which others called him "Strange One". Crazy Horse's real heroism came in 1876, when he led the Sioux to the Battle of the Rosebud and the Little Big Horn. On June 17, they conquered General Crook and his men. Then eight days later along with 2500 other Sioux and Cheyenne at the Little Big Horn. Some say it lasted only ten minutes as Crazy Horse wiped out General Custer and his men. Crazy Horse finally, voluntarily surrender ...

Levi Rickert, editor-in-chief in Native Condition Ever since the property at Wounded Knee was put up for sale, American Indians across America have wondered aloud how a place such as Wounded Knee that is so iconic to Native people could even be up for sale. Eminent domain allows for the power of thegovernment to take private property. Wounded Knee is to American Indians what Gettysburg is Americans. It is estimated that as high as 300 Lakota men, women and children were massacred by the US 7th Calvary Regiment near Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation on a wintry day four days after Christmas Day in 1890. No United States president came to Wounded Knee to declare "that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain," as President Abraham Lincoln did at Gettysburg. Unfortunately, a remnant of Lincoln's army became the members of the Calvary that fought Indians in the Great Plains after the Civil War.

This painting was started n about 1975. It got routed to a wholesaler I worked with then. It got bought and ended up in a house in Beaumont, Ca., where it sat for the next 40 years. Its purchaser died and his heirs had no interest in keeping either his house, his business, or his possessions. His house was about to be demolished when a neighbor saw the painting till hanging where he had seen it for years. He asked what was going to happen to the painting when the house was torn down and was told that it would be shredded along with the house. So he asked if he could take it. He and a friend tracked me down and he eventually brought me the painting. When I saw it, I remembered that I had never finished it. Some times that happens..So I asked if he had any objections to my finishing it now. Here is that painting as it is today in its newly-painted state, 35 years in the making.

  Elder's Meditation of the Day - April 29  "The old people came literally to love the soil and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of being close to a mothering power...The soil was soothing, strengthening, cleansing and healing..." -- Luther Standing Bear, OGLALA SIOUX Have you ever noticed the relationship between children and the soil? Watch how happily they are touching the dirt. The children play in it and eat it. If you are stressed, go to a spot on the Earth, sit down, put your fingers in the dirt, dig in it. Wash your hands in the soil. When you touch it, notice what it does to your hands. Our bodies love to touch the Earth. Sometimes we get too busy and forget these simple things. Maybe you'll even want to plant a garden or flowers. These things are mentally healthy. Great Spirit, today, let me touch the Earth so the Earth can touch me. To unsubscribe, click here.

A Plea to Save Wounded Knee Joseph Brings Plenty in Native Condition. Discussion » The Lakota Sioux word "takini" means "to die and come back" but is usually translated more simply as "survivor." It is a sacred word long associated with the killing of scores of unarmed Lakota men, women and children by soldiers of the United States Army's Seventh Cavalry in the winter of 1890. Wounded Knee Memorial GraveyardWounded Knee Memorial Graveyard Wounded Knee was the so-called final battle of America's war on its Native peoples. But what happened was hardly a battle. It was a massacre. A band of several hundred Lakota led by Big Foot, a chief of the Mnicoujou Sioux, was intercepted and detained by troops as they made their way from the Cheyenne River Reservation to Pine Ridge for supplies and safety. After a night of drinking, the bluecoats were disarming warriors the next morning when a shot went off. Soldiers opened fire with their Hotchkiss machine guns.
