It is time President Obama actually live up to at least a few of the expectations his supporters had for him. Obama has long indicated that he had some understanding of the plight of this country's native people. But what has he done?
Five hundred plus years of genocide is continuing right now, today. What would John Brown do?
The following is from  facebook.
My Dear Non-Native friends,

I know that many of you are strong supporters of Native peoples, and that you have much compassion and concern for the conditions which we face in our own lands. Today, I am humbly requesting that you put these feelings into action, and come to the assistance of the Lakota people of Pine Ridge Reservation.

Please read the words of my friend Autumn TwoBulls, as she stands up for the Children and Elders of her community. Take these words into your heart. Welal:in.


Help bring a voice to the Lakota Nation in these matters Poverty and Suicide on the Pine Ridge Reservation/Contact White HouseShare

To Friends, Relations and supporters.,

Over the last while, you have seen and heard of the terrible situations and conditions on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

A few weeks ago, I asked you all to participate in a mass phone in campaign to the CNN. That campaign drew major media attention beacause of your help. Keith Olbermen picked up the story and aired it to the world. Also Oglala Sioux Tribe Declared a State of Emergency on Suicide.

I am asking for your help and support again.

I am asking that you join me tomorrow, Tuesday February 16th, in calling or emailing President Barack Obama at the White House, to inform him of the awful conditions facing my people here on Pine Ridge. And remind him of the promises that he has made to the First Nations/Native American people.

Tell him about the grinding poverty rates, the 80% unemployment and the desperation that is leading so many of our people and youth to commite suicide. We are asking that Aide is brought to our Lakota Nation in these matters.

1: When you make your call, please be respectful

2: State in your call Why you are calling, i.e., Suicide and poverty, etc

3: State that you would like to know what the President can do about this.

4: Remind respectfully that the President made promises to the First NationsNative American People during his campaign.

Help me to have our voices heard again, as you did a few weeks ago.

Together we can make a difference for the people. One voice together, loud enough for the President to open his mind and his heart to my people, the Lakota Nation of Pine Ridge Reservation.

Please begin calling during buisness hours which are 9am - 4 pm Eastern time. Keep calling and emailing all day.

I would be so grateful, if you would join me in this effort to help Our Lakota Nation be heard. Lets work together as one voice

Respectfully, Autumn Two Bulls

Here is a video which will break your heart. Please understand that your great Nation, the United States has failed to live up to the legally binding contracts that they entered into with these Sovereign Nations, and here is the result:


Imagine living there now, when they have been battered with storm after storm over the past month.

Children, Elders, the Disabled.....


Chief Teresa TwoBulls declared a State of Emergency weeks ago, as conditions have become unbearable in a very harsh winter. The White House is silent.

Where is the HOPE that President Obama has promised? Where is HOPE for the Lakota?

Please, I ask that you join your voices with ours today. I call upon you to use your privilege today.

We would be so grateful. Welal:in Okatis (Thank you friends)
