LAST REAL INDIANS

I read that Native Americans would conduct virility ceremonies, particularly the Sioux, Apache and Cheyenne whereby men would compete over the length and strength of their 'manhood' and the man with the most desirable qualities would breed more so that his traits would be inherited in the next generation. Is that true and is that the reason Native American men are 'well endowed'?

The testimonial of Patrick Red Feather’s mother and friend is deeply touching and it gives us a human element for understanding the corruption of the state of South Dakota’s Department of Social Services.

Big Oil Throws Gauntlet; Wants to Frack Sioux Lands
Big Oil Throws Gauntlet; Wants to Frack Sioux Lands

Oil and Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) are coming to Sitting Bull’s homelands it would seem as the “Wicks Brothers” (claiming Sioux ancestry according to local talk) have published their claim and intent to do exploratory drilling in Sioux and Corson counties (all of Standing Rock Rez) in hopes they (Big Oil) can one day Frack it. The notice was published by the TetonTimes Wednesday, July 30, 2014; it is included below  (Along with the Standing Rock Nation’s policy statement on Fracking) and it states, in relevant part, that Big Oil has secured lease interests in approximatley 200,000 acres in and around the Standing Rock Nation. Fracking, in summary, is the process of injecting poisonous chemicals through layers of rock in the earth’s subsurface to loosen oil reserves and then pump that oil up to the surface. A few people at the top make a lot of money: millions, sometimes billions. The Indians are greased with chump change (as well as North Dakota legislators) and big oil takes over their lands and councils/legislators. The Indians are greased again with chump change as the states keep a majority of the taxes collected on the lands under Tribal jurisdiction. Man camps (mobile settlements housing 100s of drifting outside workers) are set up and hundreds of thousands of dollars of disposable income hits the scene bringing drugs, crime, prostitution and sexually driven abductions, attempted abductions, missing persons and a host of other negative impacts; Industrial 18-wheeler truck traffic takes over your roads (destroying them, causing traffic fatalities and leaving the tribe to deal with it); everyone is put at risk; people die, but die they must as necessary casualties of this machine. This machine is big oil and it is not anything to take lightly. They are coming to destroy our lands, lethally poison our surface and ground waters and destroy the tranquility and purity of our homelands. If we should lay down and take this, what happens when they leave? Who unpoisons the water? Who will stop the inevitable oil-spills like the 1million gallon spill that Mandan Hidatsa and Arikara Nations are claiming was harmless because “beaver dams were able to contain it.” Who will give our children water to drink when they are crying for it? Who should revive the coyotes, the deer as they lay dying, the buffalo, the meadowlark and all life loved by the water? Who will speak for them? Who has lost their way? Who is seeking the way? Who makes the land sacred again after it has been desecrated? Their system is a disease; it is not natural and it is out of balance. Extraction, fiat currency and debt are pure lies; there is no wealth or true life in them. They are coming to destroy our homelands and by extension destroy us. Original peoples, North Dakotans and open-minded Americans who have learned to appreciate the land know full well that fracking has no place here. We must show the world a better way. We are always ready. We need a new spiritual economy now. -LRI

Copper Breaking (Cutting) Ceremony on the Steps of Canada’s House by Clayton Thomas-Muller

History

In early February 2013, Hereditary Chief Beau Dick, his two daughters, Linnea and Geraldine Dick, and many supporters started their journey from Pt. Hardy to Victoria in support of the Idle No More movement. They arrived with much fan fare from supporters at the BC Legislature on Sunday, Feb. 10th. A Copper Cutting Ceremony was performed on the steps of the Legislature, meant to bring attention to Prime Minister Steven Harper on the impact of fish farms, pipelines and fracking in BC and all of Canada.

Fast forward one year later and there has been NO RESPONSE from Steven Harper on the Copper Cutting Ceremony and the concerns for our environment it was meant to highlight. So Chief Beau Dick and Chiefs from surrounding First Nations are planning a to journey to Parliament Hill in Ottawa….

Ok, So I posted what you said about the photographer and model. The photographer (is the only one I've had the chance to talk to) said he was sorry and that it will be taken down as soon as possible, he along with the model did NOT mean to offend anyone, and said she just wanted a thought provoking image. It did provoke a lot of thought. Anyhow the photographer said to thank you, b/c he did not know. So thanks for your help! I truly appreciate it!
