Native Americans, in the way of industrialization, as is with all people, animals, and trees

Today marks the 122nd Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, SD. These 297 people in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began AFTER the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. When the final round had flown, of the 297 dead or dying, 200 were women and children.

''The old Lakota was wise. He knew that mans heart away from nature becomes hard; he knew that lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans too.'' - Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Chief of the Black Hills - Artist James Ayers

To have courage is to have the mental and moral strength to listen to our heart. It takes courage to do what is morally right. Native people were told by the Elders to be proud of who they were and never to deny the way of life the Great Spirit gave them. It is with Courage that we reclaim our rightful place in the circle of life and the right to honour the Great Spirit and pray for all people.

"Speak truth in humility to all people. Only then can you be a true man." SIOUX proverb

You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers, that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves.
