Indian Republican Club, Sioux Indians of Rosebud Reservation, S.D. 1925
You don’t know unconquerable dignity until you’re a Rez Dog with no resources making ends meet on the daily all winter long and the spring is finally here; the cards are stacked against him, yes, but he has no owners, no one controls his footsteps, he cares not about his Rez status or the BIA, the USA and all their Federal Indian Doctrine of Discovery racist bullshit keep-you-in-poverty ideologies- he is his own, providing how he can and still looking stoic as hell doing it.
Wopila tanka! (Thanks much!)

Honor the Treaties. Reject and Protect in DC. Photo by Clayton Thomas Muller
What: US and Canadian Tribal leaders uplift treaties as strongest force to stop the tar sands at the source
When: 11:00 am Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Where: 501 Pennsylvania Ave NW on steps of the Canadian Embassy in Washington DC
Washington DC – Crystal Lameman, spokesperson of the Beaver Lake Cree Nation, will be joined by US Tribal representatives at the steps of the Canadian Embassy in Washington DC. The Beaver Lake Cree Nation is currently engaged in a landmark constitutional treaty rights challenge in the Supreme Court of Canada that has named tens of thousands of treaty rights violation of Treaty 6 by the provincial government of Alberta, the federal government of Canada, and dozens of oil companies operating in the controversial Canadian tar sands.
The Beaver Lake Cree Nation case represents a growing understanding that the Native rights-based strategic framework uplifting inherit and treaty rights is the strongest legal framework to stop both the expansion of the tar sands at the source and all of the associated pipeline infrastructure coming out of Alberta to bring this land-locked resource to international markets. Representatives of the Dakota, Lakota, Nakota, Ponca, Ojibway, and Cree Nations will raise up their collective message to the Canadian government that they have a fiduciary and legal obligation to the signatories of Treaty Six, Treaty 8, and the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868.
