Best of the rest: what we clicked on this week around the web

After months of community pressure, protesters at the #BentleyBlockade were rewarded when state energy minister Anthony Roberts referred the project to ICAC, stating Metagasco failed to undertake "genuine and effective consultation with the community as required."  This goes to show that when we make it easier for a government to say no to a corporation than a community, we can win. Read more: http://bit.ly/1sPBYFs

We would like to thank our members for all of their support! Without their generosity, our vision of foster care run by Lakota, for Lakota would not become a reality. If you'd still like to become a member go to http://lakota.cc/1kvf8ka.  So far, we have raised $3,000 in recurring donations. This helps to finance our office and employees in Rapid City, South Dakota.   There are still many challenges to face and much ground to cover in this process, but we are making headway.

The systematic removal of Lakota children has had a harmful impact on the Native way of life because they lose knowledge of their culture. The kidnapping of Lakota children has not only taken them from their families, but has torn communities and traditions apart. The actions being taken against the Native Americans are consistent with cultural genocide, as the Geneva Convention implies.  Help bring the Lakota children home!

The negative stereotypes that STILL plague Native Americans are outrageous. Natives are not “savage” people and should not be treated as second class citizens. Indigenous people are the closest to the Earth, and prosper in the open plains not cramped onto a reservation. In addition to being relocated to reservations, Natives have been subjected to the illegal kidnappings of their children by the DSS. Sign the Petition: lakotalaw.org/action
