I have read about this but it was the amount of traffic that brought it home:

It is my own personal thought all the money generated from the raping of the earth is nothing more than blood money... and no good will ever come of it.

But raping the Earth they are. One night I was on this site reading a post by Raven Warrior in which there was a link that I got sort of got sucked into----meaning one link led to another. This is the last one I was on after singing a petition to save Bear Butte:

http://protectsacredsites.org/

I also have to wonder with the slant drilling fracking method if they are bellying up close to the L/D/N Nations to take the oil out from under your land, just another form of thievery.

GW, I think it was you, but someone once posted on a topic being discussed a huge document that showed claimed right of ways through L/D/N lands. I scrolled down and just clicked on one of the links which was a map of roads existing and future through just one small piece of reservation lands and it blew my mind. Between federal, state and county they had claimed right of ways just leaving small islands of land in between. I could not imagine why they would need so many roads.

"....a huge document that showed claimed right of ways through L/D/N lands. "

In which language was this document written?

"Hydraulic fracturing — the controversial process behind the spread of natural gas drilling — is enabling oil companies to reach previously inaccessible reserves in North Dakota, triggering a turnaround not only in the state's fortunes, but also in domestic energy production. North Dakota now ranks second behind only Texas in oil output nationwide."

They sure are ruining those lands.Plants will not grow where there is salt.It may take years before it gets back to normal.Maybe they need to grow ocean air plants there? Are they trying to make it oceanfront property in North Dakota? Lol. Like I said The Indians said long ago that man is destroying our Earth.You know, it is a horrible shame and it is killing us ,too,all for the name of greed. Earth is such a beautiful place.Jennifer

This whole process just has to affect the Lakotah, and not in a good way.

This article came out today and while it does not mention the L/D/N I am wondering why not:



"Native Americans on an oil-rich North Dakota reservation have been cheated out of more than $1 billion by schemes to buy drilling rights for lowball prices, a flurry of recent lawsuits assert. And, the suits claim, the federal government facilitated the alleged swindle by failing in its legal obligation to ensure the tribes got a fair deal."

"This is a story as old as America itself, given a new twist by fracking and the boom that technology has sparked in North Dakota oil country. Since the late 1800s, the U.S. government has appropriated much of the original tribal lands associated with the Fort Berthold reservation in North Dakota for railroads and white homesteaders. A devastating blow was delivered when the Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Missouri River in 1953, flooding more than 150,000 acres at the heart of the remaining reservation. Members of the Three Affiliated Tribes — the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara — were forced out of the fertile valley and up into the arid and barren surrounding hills, where they live now."

When the right to bear arms is in capable hands such as these,no wonder the NRA are running scared.

hau Thermlin,

There is a youtube video that was posted earlier on CENSORED NEWS that truly showed the power of these warriors. It immediately took me back to a scene in the book Neither Wolf Nor Dog . The author and an Indian man (I can't remember the character's name) have this conversation:

Indian: "She's not one to mess with."

Nerburn: "None of them are."

Indian: "Should have sicced them on you when you first got here. You guys would have gone home in row boats."

hau Thermlin and ghostwarrior,

My first comment on the ProPublica was printed but low and behold this one, they said, had to be reviewed:


@dave.mcfatridge

Try 500 years of Injustice:
http://ili.nativeweb.org/sdrm_art.html


Then take a look at:
http://www.usdakotawar.org/history/dakota-homeland

Then click on this thread within the link directly above:
http://www.usdakotawar.org/history/newcomers

Maybe, just maybe you will then understand. The US demanded during the Treaty of Paris that the lands be under The Doctrine of Discovery. How else to open lands in the Ohio Valley; to build the transcontinental railroad while opening unseeded lands to homesteading that was protected by Treaties? Treaties that the US sued for. Those four lying racist faces on Rushmore should be blasted into oblivion as well as the myths that surround them.

How do you 'discover' an occupied continent? How do you 'give' land to People that already own them?

Any bets on whether or not they print it? :D :lol:

"- unite in solidarity with indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere to impress upon Pope {insert name here}how important it is for him to revoke, in a formal ceremony with indigenous people, the Inter Cetera bulls of 1493."

Looks like they're too busy playing 'hot potato' to play 'I am Spartacus' right now.Or is it the other way round?

20/20 vision is great in hindsight.

Fracking is used in both oil and gas extraction. Take a look at what happens when there is a bad casing:

Fracking's new problem: Radioactive waste
The danger levels from 'oil socks' are fairly low, but the discovery of large quantities of abandoned waste is still causing an outcry.


Image

Excerpt:

At a deserted gas station in a remote North Dakota town, local officials recently found the latest example of the shale-oil boom's unintended consequences: hundreds of garbage bags filled with mildly radioactive waste.


These bags (pictured), which were discovered late February in Noonan, N.D., contained what are known as "oil socks": three-foot-long, snake-like filters made of absorbent fiber that the shale-oil industry uses to capture silt from waste water resulting from hydraulic fracturing.


Days earlier, a similar trove had been found on flatbed trailers near a landfill in Watford City -- which, like Noonan, is located in the state's sparsely populated westernmost reaches where the Bakken oil shale formation lies.

Hau Koda,

The more "Progress" I hear about the more I see the land suffer.

Hau woodrow, it is so good to hear your voice again.

Mollydee tells me about how the frackers are dumping untreated fracking fluids into streams, rivers and lakes in Pennsylvania. They are gearing up to frack the Monterrey Shale in CA billing it as the worlds new Saudi Arabia.


Video showing the rape of North Dakota.

http://vimeo.com/82246373

When I watched this video, even though it is pretty much about white people I had to wonder what this going to do to our air and water quality. In the Great Central Valley of California air inversions hold pollens, dust, farm pollution and all the pollution form the gas and oil industries day after day.

The Air quality of North Dakota seems to really taking a hit. All for profits. It makes absolutely no sense to me to allow the total destruction of this Planet for the short term profits for a few.
