It ain’t easy being Indian… (October 2016)

News From Indian Country

Moosie checked in recently and was all morose about the upcoming presidential election. He’s voting for Hillary because he likes women, a lot, but is in personal distress about the Cheeto-colored guy. What if? What if that guy wins? He will abolish all Native American Indian rights as we have them now. The orange peanut guy is on record testifying against Indians building casinos and succeeding where he did not.

I was recently awarded the Virginia McKnight Foundation Binger Family Unsung Hero award. This was a pretty big deal and there was a luncheon for the award in Minneapolis in September at the McKnight Foundation offices. The award was first started last year and they only give out four per year. There were 127 nominees for the award this year.

#10/25/2016  Dakota Access Pipeline work heads southeast to the Missouri River.

 

Video shot by Myron Dewey. 14 minute drone view of Highway 1806 roadway blockade and pipeline work protected by police as it is running towards the river. This is the same site that Dakota Access Pipeline workers first jumped to on September 23 when the dogs were used by security and desecrated historical and sacred sites of the Standing Rock Tribe.


#10/24/2016  Side by Side description of Morton County claims of protectors charging them, etc. and other fabricated scenarios to bait the media. 

I remember seeing a video of this incident and the cop with the pepper spray went up to an individual and pushed him around trying to get him to respond -- then turned around and went back and sprayed the same man -- then claimed the water protector had charged at him.


#10/24/2016 - 127 Indigenous protectors were arrested on suspicion of criminal trespassing on private property while protesting the construction of an oil pipeline.

Water protectors claim the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is planned to go through indigenous territory, could contaminate their drinking water and disturb burial grounds.

Award winning journalist Maria Hinojosa visited the Standing Rock to speak with protectors and learn more.

"The presidential candidates don't even mention Native Americans in their speeches," said Tara Houska, a national campaign director for Honor the Earth. "We are not even a thought." More video here: http://nbcnews.to/2eDkgoz

It ain’t easy being Indian… (Sept. 2016)

September 20, 2016 - 7:56pm
By Ricey Wild News From Indian Country   
An amazing man passed on recently. You all know him too, Jim Northrup from Sawyer, Minn. He was a raconteur, author, poet and playwright and he was my friend. I will always miss him but before he left he was at peace and I believe that was a monumental gift from the Creator.

He looked so much older since Donnie died. A year earlier I saw them together hauling wood and they were drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes in the cab of Brian’s old pickup truck. We never talked about happiness and they swore at each other and they swore at their chain saws and they smoked even as they were cutting wood.
