    The only barrier standing in the way of another shameful broken treaty with our Native Americans is the U.S. Congress. The federal government is planning to take the South Unit of Badlands National Park and turn it over to the Department of the Interior, to have it administered by the National Park Service. The NPS was in the news last year when they barricaded our national monuments and prevented elderly WWII veterans from seeing their memorial during the sequester. The NPS put up barriers along scenic look-outs so drivers couldnÂ’t see Mt. Rushmore, and closed park entrances across the country....

    President Barack Obama has an unexpected foreign policy problem – in the Western United States. The Lakota Sioux nation has seceded from the United States, according to a story on the anti-American website La Voz de Aztlan. “We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us,” long-time Native American radical leader Russell Means said. The move potentially impacts the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. He(Means) has continued his push for Sioux independence in the decades...

    In the rolling meadow below Mohawk Mountain in the northwest corner of Connecticut, a white buffalo baby trots alongside his massive mother, his whiteness highlighted against her dark brown winter fur that is still molting in the summer heat. The white buffalo or bison—Tatanka Ska in the Sioux language—was born June 16, at 1 p.m. on Peter Fay’s Mohawk Bison ranch in Goshen, Connecticut. Although Fay is not a Native and was only vaguely familiar with the story of the White Buffalo Calf Woman and the white buffalo as a spiritual symbol of sacred life and abundance to the Lakota...

    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.

    Here is the kind of story that really proves how little the MSM bothers to research things, how they often simply print glorified press releases without doing any real "journalism," and how the defective end product gets picked up and regurgitated like it is suddenly a "fact." In this one we have the story of "the Lakota Sioux Indians" announcing that "they" have withdrawn from agreed upon treaties with the US government and that they are now a sovereign nation, no longer to be called citizens of the USA. Problem is "the Lakota Sioux Indians" that have made this announcement...

    Pentagon weapons testers say the Army’s new European-designed and built light utility helicopter has a couple of serious shortcomings that must be remedied before it can fulfill many assigned missions. A new report by the Director of Operational Test and Evaluation says the Eurocopter UH-72A Lakota helicopter “is not operationally suitable,” especially in hot weather environments, because its cockpit electronics systems could fail due to inadequate air conditioning. The Army plans to buy 322 of the helicopters, a slightly modified version of the commercial Eurocopter EC-145, which it selected last year for use by stateside Army and National Guard units...

    PORCUPINE, S.D. - The first woman elected to lead the Oglala Sioux tribe was removed from office with five months remaining in her first term. Cecelia Fire Thunder, former president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, met the anti-abortion movement and lost. At a hearing on June 29, Tribal Councilman Will Peters, architect of the complaints against her, said at the outset that abortion was the issue. ''We are here today because of the abortion. We will plan for and fight for all Lakota, including the unborn,'' Peters said. Fire Thunder opened the floodgates of criticism when she suggested opening a...

In what has been deemed a sovereignty case that is very uniquely framed, the White Plumes planted industrial hemp on their family land for three...

High schools, colleges and professional sports teams face harassment and lawsuits every day for using Indian names and images. Yet no one objects to Hollywood leftist Robert Redford naming his Sundance Institute after a Lakota Sioux ritual. Why the "free pass," asks Yeagley? "I protest... the outlandish hypocrisy of the Leftist Indians, who would crush some innocent school for using `Warrior' on its school jersey, yet not breathe a word of protest against Robert Redford's use of `Sundance'...

    PINE RIDGE, S.D. – Bruce Whalen is trying to persuade people around the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to do something they just don't do: vote Republican. The task may seem daunting if not impossible in a county where Democrats outnumber Republicans nearly 11-to-1. But Republicans believe the Indian vote could play a decisive role in this year's closely watched Senate race between Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle and former GOP Rep. John Thune. They say Daschle has failed to use his clout in Washington to solve rampant problems on the reservation, where people live in almost Third World conditions. Unemployment...

    (Talon News) -- The Senate race in South Dakota got more complicated Monday with the entry of a third party candidate. Originally, Tim Giago, a member of the Lakota tribe, planned to challenge Sen. Tom Daschle (D-SD) for the Democratic nomination, but instead has decided to run as an independent in the November election. Giago's candidacy threatens Daschle's already uncertain reelection bid. Giago, the publisher of the Lakota Journal, told Talon News that Daschle phoned him following his announcement and asked, "Do you want to be the Ralph Nader of this race?" Daschle was suggesting that Giago would siphon off...

    Ogalala Sioux healer George Amiotte came alone to pray as the sun rose on the new Indian Memorial at Little Bighorn Battlefield. He wanted to be there early, before the crowds arrived for the dedication of the memorial honoring the American Indians who fought and died there June 25, 1876. There he would offer prayers for the dead on behalf of the three warrior societies to which he belongs on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Dressed in buckskins and feathers, as his ancestors would have been 127 years ago, he offered his thanks for their sacrifice. Amiotte is...

The 20 riders of the Great Sioux Nation Victory Ride set out June 9 from the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. They wanted to take a slow, contemplative path to the battlefield where their ancestors found victory 127 years ago. It was a chance to remind the tribe's young people of the one unmistakable outcome of the battle, rider Doug War Eagle said. "We're still here," he said. Tuesday night the riders...
