HONOR THE TREATY, GIVE BACK THE BLACK HILLS!

The last chapter in any successful genocide is the one in which the oppressor can remove their hands and say, ‘My God, what are these people doing to themselves? They’re killing each other. They’re killing themselves while we watch them die.’ This is how we came to own these United States. This is the legacy of manifest destiny.” (Aaron Huey)

Is this a video clip, M? Once again we're on bandwidth curfew and I can't load things due to slow speed. :( So I'll have to check in again when I'm next in town and can get high speed wi-fi.

Hey T

Yes, it is a video. It is about 5 minutes long... I think. A journalist spent time on Pine Ridge and did a video documentary for TED. It is really good.

5 minutes, eh? Definitely an in-town thing for me. :}

How very, very sad...the govt.'s treatment of Native Americans is horrible. How can anyone think they can do that to another group of people? What's wrong with the world? :(

Yes, too bad the gov't isn't treating the Native Americans better. You'd think after all they've been through...
