Dakota Access CEO: Company committed to finishing pipeline

Run over rights and laws just like what was done with the SLT. The religion of capitalism and pavement wins.

North Dakota tribe's request to stop work on pipeline denied

Indigenous people here know all to well how the US Army Corps of Engineers are against us. I remember a Kiowa friend Giving the Sieg Heil salute to a table of US Army Corps of Engineers officials at the Douglas County Fairgrounds over the SLT in 2003. Indigenous people never needed oil. We walked everywhere. Dheghia Siouan people walked to Cahokia from the East Coast 900 years ago. Caddoan people came north from Louisiana to Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakota 1200 years ago. Thousands of years ago Algonquin people came across this land walking. Europeans needed the wheel, slaves, trains,and cars to do work for them. Indigenous people value their environment. Colonizing immigrants don't want the environment to impede their capitalism i.e.their religion. They have no connection to the lands they desecrate. Water is life. Western Kansas farmers have drained the life from the Oglala Acquifer. Indigenous people lived in deserts and dry areas by living in environmental balance. Tar sands oil is full of carbon dioxide and very dirty. The Missouri River runs from Montana to St. Louis. If an oil leak happens the pollution comes down stream. I guess Americans drunk on the religion of exploitative capitalism don't think ahead do they?

Opinion: Inequality part of freedom

This editorial should be called Inequality is part of Colonialism. The colonists were the original freeloaders. They also freeloaded on their debt to the British over the debt the British accrued defending the colonies in the French and Indian War by tossing tea in the Boston Harbor. Original freeloading. All thirteen colonies violated Indian Non Intercourse Act of 1790 by treatying lands without congressional act. Most of them got away with it. Do you realize George that the US Government paid via treaty to the Shawnee tribe of Vinita Oklahoma for the land you live on

Haskell faculty, students call Washington Redskins poll results 'crazy'

False arguement put forth out of ignorance deliberately. Okla humma put forth by Choctaw Chairman Allen Wright after Sequoyah wasn't accepted as a territory name. Janette Kekahbah was correct in the origin of the term in question. Ignorant people use an offensive term and their descendants are clueless to the offensiveness. Go figure.

If an uninformed populace see hundreds of tribes as nothing more than a stereotypical mascots how are issues taken seriously? Short answer....they haven't been.

Native people have fought this mascot for four decades. The coach who coined the name faked his ancestry and stereotyped multiple indigenous nations wirh an emblem that's easy to digest for White historical consumption with no reality involved. Imagine if I was Armenian and a non Armenian group decided how I was portrayed without asking out of priviledge and denied that any atrocities ever happened and no one listened to my concerns and misrepresented me anyway? Ironic.

This country has a paternalist disconnect. Ignore individual ethnicities and call them whatever and don't take them seriously. Very American.

Prince, one of most inventive musicians of modern era, dies in home at age 57

My wife and I went to Minneapolis last October and we went to Prince's two childhood homes near downtown Minneapolis. We also saw First Avenue Club where Purple Rain was filmed. I remember hearing Prince on the radio in the inner city part of Shreveport where I lived in 1979. We sneaked into the Varsity Theatre in Aggieville for Purple Rain. Thanks for the memories Prince.
