Until we Win
Current Pine Ridge Weather
August 8, 2000
The peaceful monitoring of the Red Cloud Building in Pine Ridge has now reached 213 days. No negotiations are foreseen and the Grass Roots Oyate still maintain their sovereignty.
The Oglala Band, Tetuwan Oyate General Council met and revitalized themselves from the oppression they endured during the occupation. They vowed under the sacred pipe to proceed vigorously with the nine- (9) demands and take formulation of another Government. The General Council feels we need to relinquish ourselves from the destructive IRA Indian Reorganization Act form of Government.
It has been revealed to the Grass Roots Oyate that corruption on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation started from the Secretary of Interior Office in Washington D.C. This corruption is throughout Indian Country. There is a Chuck Jacobs on every Reservation to cause HAVOC on Indian Reservations to terminate sovereign Nations. Mr. Jacobs almost succeeded, but was exposed on January 16, 2000 when peaceful monitoring began. We the Grass Roots Oyate are calling for Unity. We need to forget the enemy with their own weapons to be victorious. We the Grass Roots Oyate will not vacate Red Cloud Building until such time the demands are met and a different Government under the sacred pipe emerges.
