I don't really know who you are, but if your down in jefferson ohio, then what exactly gives you any kind of idea that you deserve to talk about anyone? Do you have any idea who these people are? If you do then shut up, it's not like they went out and made it themselves, or like there's any kind of jobs there. we can all sit back trying to be high and mighty, but what makes you think that gives you any right to open your mouth about someone else's business? you think their family hasn't suffered enough, do you think your words make things any better? you called them traitors, but before you go off fighting for the c.r.s.t. nation, maybe you should go down to eagle butte, and help their families. that's as cowardice as it gets, to talk crap about something when you're not even in the state.
You know the saying, "If you don't have something nice to say, then shut the fuck up!"

i was born and raised on this rez, the crst rez was a better place when slime like this didn't exist. but they're here now, and we have to deal with these parasites. and yes they are stealing the hopes and dreams of our people. if you choose to rationalize and accept the fact that drugs do no harm, then enjoy your misery. but don't condone it. ass-backward thoughts like yours are whats keeping our people down, and not helping indians in general, enjoy all that life has to offer. so get a life, and shut the fuck up bitch.

shit is the dominant language, spoken on the rez. being someone on the rez, is a very poor life goal. instead of standing there with your hand out, and blurting your issues. try doing your best to take care of business, like a real indian winyan.

My name is Lynn "Sota" Hart owner of No Xcuses None! and a proud member of the Yankton Sioux tribe located in SE South Dakota. And the designer of the "Original American Indian Anti-Meth posters for Youth Across America".
I specifically designed these posters to be relevant to Indian country because I felt they were unique and would aid in the battle against Meth on and off the American Indian reservations. Itís not going to be the "cure all" but I feel that the families and their youth living on the reservations in America need to use whatever American Indian people can to identify with in their own culture to help combat the use of Meth in their own backyards. So I designed the American Indian Anti-Meth posters to convey this message to Indian country. Meth knows nothing or cares anything about your culture, your race, sex, or spirituality. As a proud member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe I do care about preserving our cultural way of life and all the youth and families living within that sacred circle.
I started working on the project last spring or early summer 2007 when I noticed that the posters I saw were all about the after effects of meth; images of white people with rotten teeth and bad hair and nothing specific to American Indian culture. Nothing had an Indian motiff, so I decided to create posters for kids to take home and share with their families and friends and to put up in their bedrooms as a constant reminder to think about the dangers of Meth. Knowing how kids are, if you give one kid something cool and make it fun to have then it becomes another tool to use to get the message across to our youth. My posters are are 11x17" highly glossed and look great! I have them in NM,WA,OR,MT,CO,ND,MN,WI, etc,etc References are available upon request. Again, please visit my website http://www.noxcusesnone.com
The posters are very well received and are a positive tool and are effective in showing our youth a strong positive message against Meth in your community.

I can see how people have resort to using,buying,selling whatever to make a buck out there tribal economic growth seem to be at a stand still. only job for indians is casino work. and working for the tribe is just as crazy too. what else is there but g.a.,tanif what not for the poor people back there to do but get high and drunk. not any coorperation would want to put up somekind af business to create jobs for self sufficiency because of the so called indian who only works just enoughto get the first paycheck. and then quit! sucks that the indian people resort to using anything anyway the circle is broken. I for one want to now what being done to bring the cirlce back.

"in the ghettoes the white man has built for us, he has forced us not to aspire to greater things, but to view everyday living as survival-and in that kind of a community, survival is what is respected. in one sense, we were huddled in there, bonded together in seeking security and warmth and comfort from each other, and we didn't know it. all of us-who might have probed space, or cured cancer, or built industries- were, instead, victims of the white man's american social system." (quoted from the auto bio. of malcolm x)

besides the ghetto, rez, barrio or what ever.
we all have the notion that only survival is important. now we have a filthy drug called meth, to stifle even more dreams of our people.

on our council floor one of our councilmen, stated that if we want accomplish our dreams, we first have to wake up. and like it or not, thats the truth.

think of how many great potential leaders that are in our tribe, that could have been, if not for drugs, alcohol,suicide, and the everlasting injustice that south dakota wages against the indians of the dakotas.

we deserve to have strong drug free, educated leaders, if not only in the tribal goernment, but in the home too.

OKay! well i dont exactly have anything to say to any of you specific but, i dont have something to say there is always a good and bad way to live and its not just on the reservations its everywhere.i am from crst and i grew up there but, that shouldnt make a difference people can give there opinions and what not but, i know that i am in college now and i know that i do want to go back to my reservation and give something back not because im stuck there but, because i want to help. i know alot of people that resort to drugs and what not but, i also know alot of people that really want to live there life. so i think that no one has a right to say that where we live is bad or good. unless you actually live it...just because you hear something in the news doesnt mean the whole town is bad it just means that there are people that have lost sight of what they want to be.

injun dude i supported you until you started throwing around the white man word...What a shame you sounded very intelligent to. 1/2 of the people on the rez have white man in them and by calling yourself injun i would guess you are one.

I couldn't agree with you more. It makes me sad to see the state of a once beautiful, proud, strong nation. There is so much alcohol, drug, sexual and elderly abuse it's depressing. This is what people here about and they stereotype native americans as all the same. They fail to realize there are hard working, well educated natives who do not drink, smoke, use or sell drugs. The reservation can be such a beautiful, serene place, but it can be a depressing place too. I hope you do go back, sam, and do your part to help our people. I am very proud of where I came from & my native heritage, although I do not live there anymore, I miss it's beauty and rich cultural heritage. But I do not miss the alcoholism, drug abuse & the sexual and physical abuse that the women, children and elderly people suffer.

ya know, jlb1976, if you pulled your head out of your ass long enough to read what i wrote, you would have noted the reference, to malcom x, and his autobiography. when you choose to call some one on their heritage. try to get it straight. better yet, try to understand basic text and reference material. but you are correct , that i'm not 100% lakota. but i was raised as a native american, i may not be traditional, but i choose the path, to honor my family, and relatives. and by the way i'm not full blood, but i bet i'm browner that any full blood in south dakota. and when i go back to south dakota, i'm treated with all the racism and disrespect, south dakota has to offer our people. "injun dude" is just a handle. i also answer to "CE-TAN GI"

Hey Injun Dude. I am happy to hear that you are an educated lakota. That is very hard to come by. I remember when I was little & certain people were embarrassed to be lakota or act like they did'nt know what our Unci's were saying to us in lakota, when other people were around.Now a lot of people are finding out it's cool to be indian & want to learn the lang. I hope to meet you someday.As far as the rez goes.. You are not missing SHIT!! As you can tell...Hang in there!

thanks shechamae, stay brown and stay strong.
we as lokota, can't be contained on the rez anymore, after all, our people, used to roam, wherever they pleased. and were rulers our our domain. now we are contained to the rez, not by fences or soldiers, but by fears of the outside, and termination of the reservations. i can guess which government instilled this b.s. on our people. an education can be a powerful tool, to help yourself, your family, your tribe and so on.
i hope someday our people see the value of an education, and make us as a nation, just that much stronger. p.s. the bia education system is just a sorry part of this conspirisy, keeping our young people uneducated to be ruled over. hang in there, and stay proud of who you are.

Well, I think that Eagle Butte is a good place to rear children; as long as you are in the right enviornment. I was not born there but grew up there. I had a fabulous upbringing. I attended a good school and had plenty of opportunities. Now whether or not you decide to grasp them is totally up to you. NO ONE makes you choose anything. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS!!! The eight that were charged were probably all hopped up and made a stupid decision. Hustling is one of the few and near job opportunities on the rez... THAT'S LIFE!!! Either you live it or move on. Don't complain unless you are planning on doing something about it.... ya heard!? Coming from the rez; we are all offered the same choices. same school, store, people... Do what you do and don't worry about what the news is... It happens somewhere everyday. WELCOME TO THE REZ. THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. IF YOU WANT TO BITCH LIKE ONE, BE A MAN AND HELP. I Give much love and props to anyone who can stick it out in Eagle Butte, you have to have a survival mentality. 1LOV3
