I received this request for donations today from an organization so dear to my heart that I wanted to share it with you. This organization, totally run by volunteers, works tirelessly to improve the lives of the Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. As you know, if you’ve read any of my other posts on the Lakota or Pine Ridge, the conditions people have to live in – in the midst of the United States of America – are unconscionable! The national news media won’t tell you about it but I have seen it with my own eyes and spoken with many people who live it every day. It is wrong! I don’t know why the national media refuses to step up and admit that we have Third World conditions in the United States, but they won’t. You have to search to find documentaries or other information. You have to know what you’re looking for before you look. That’s a tall order for most Americans.

So here you have it – facts about life on Pine Ridge and HOW YOU CAN HELP. Enjoy the read – then call someone, tell them and ask them to pass it on. Call your senators and representatives. CALL THE NATIONAL NEWS MEDIA – OR WRITE OR EMAIL – WHATEVER SUITS YOU BEST.
TELL PEOPLE WHAT THE NATIONAL NEWS MEDIA WON’T TELL THEM!!
