U.U.W.S. Demands! An apology from the Rapid City, Police Chief, Karl Jegeris, Over photo.
In light of Rapid City Police promoting better Race relations between them and our Native Community, with a documented history of abuse, profiling, mistrust and in justice.This photo was taken before this young lady was aware of it and before she was charged with a crime. We do not condone drinking and driving and will not get involved in that issue. But we will get involved in the unprofessional manner in which the Police Chief posted this photo on Twitter and then it was seen on all local media including across the state in Sioux Falls. (Including making a joke about the can of bud light) We feel its racially motivated because no photos of this kind have been posted before or after this event. And was simply a blunder and bad move by the police chief. (We have contacted the police and mayors office with no response either way) We feel that this doesn't help any of the efforts by the Police Chief Karl Jegeris and Rapid City Mayor Steve Allander (Former Police Chief) to better race relations in our native community. We demand an apology.United Urban Warrior Society
Protect the Sacred White Buffalo! Create a White Buffalo Protection Act
We are seeking national protection status for the White Buffalo. Similar to The Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act of 1940. (16 U.S.C. 668-668d).On May 9, 2016. President Obama signed National Bison Legacy Act into law the resolution declaring the bison the national mammal of the United States.We want to take it one step further and add a protection status for the White Buffalo and to make it illegal for anyone to hunt this sacred animal. It is well known what the significance of the White Buffalo means to many indigenous Nations. Among Native American tribes, especially the Plains Indians, the buffalo is considered a sacred animal and religious symbol. "The creation stories of where buffalo came from put them in a very spiritual place among many tribes. The buffalo crossed many different areas and functions, and it was utilized in many ways. It was used in ceremonies, as well as to make tipi covers that provided homes for people, utensils, shields, weapons and parts were used for sewing with the sinew." The Lakota, Dakota and Nakota (Sioux) consider the birth of a White Buffalo to be the return of White Buffalo Calf Woman, their primary cultural prophet and the bringer of their "Seven Sacred Rites". Among the Mandan and Hidatsa, the White Buffalo Cow Society was the most sacred of societies for women. We are seeking your support on this issue ~ UUWS ~
Recall S. D. Highway Patrol from supporting Morton County Sheriffs office in Mandan N.D.
We the Native community of South Dakota are asking you to pull your support of Morton County Sheriffs department, as other law enforcement agencies have based on questionable tactics and civil right matters. We ask in good faith that you bring our Highway Patrol Officer's back home to South Dakota! Ask yourself does South Dakota need this negative attention and publicity! What could South Dakota possibly benefit from this situation? As you are aware there is a situation growing on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation that boarders both North and South Dakota. The Sioux Nation (Oceti Sakowin) has vowed to stop the Black Snake (DAPL) from destroying our water and crossing our Treaty Land. Today there are thousands of defenders who have come to pray with us and stand with us. Actors, Political leaders, even whole City’s L.A., Seattle has sent in letters of support, 500 Tribal Nations, organizations, from here and around the world have spoken out in our support including the United Nations and the Pope. Only to land in deaf ears! The Governor of North Dakota and his Barney Fife Police Department continue to mount up false accusations and false charges against the defenders from attack dogs to vigilante Corporate Security guard’s. The Morton County Sheriff’s Department called in for reinforcements of approximately 400 sheriffs from across the United States and have stated they will be escalating their war tactics and become more "proactive" in stopping those of us on the frontlines here from protecting Sacred Water. Jack Dalyrmple, the governor of North Dakota has shares in DAPL and is invested personally. This politician is using the armed police as his personal army to protect his money! We call on him and the police to cease and desist in this terrorism against unarmed indigenous people upholding our duty to protect our water and land. Oceti Sakowin, Standing Rock encampment needs your help! The Governor and his puppet Sheriff are trying their best to escalate this situation so they can justify violence against the defenders.
Petition the BIA and FBI to Honor Article 1 of the 1868 Treaty to protect Tribal Members
The U.S. Government Has a Responsibility to protect tribal members & Land as per the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty!... Federal and Treaty law are equal! Ones doesn't Trump (over ride) over the other! The BIA and the FBI are obligated to protect all Tribes, Tribal members and Tribal land including treaty territories. This is established in Article 1 of the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868. We request an intervention from the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigations) To stop Corporate Security Guards and out of state police (Militia) from their involvement of the DAPL issue! Also to cap off the aggression of the Governor of North Dakota and the Sheriff of Morton County! It is YOUR responsibility to protect us! ARTICLE I.From this day forward all war between the parties to this agreement shall for ever cease. The government of the United States desires peace, and its honor is hereby pledged to keep it. The Indians desire peace, and they now pledge their honor to maintain it. If bad men among the whites, or among other people subject to the authority of the United States, shall commit any wrong upon the person or property of the Indians, the United States will, upon proof made to the agent, and forwarded to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs at Washington city, proceed at once to cause the offender to be arrested and punished according to the laws of the United States, and also reimburse the injured person for the loss sustained. This is the “Clause” from the United States Constitution Article 6, Clause 2 that supports the treaty! Over State Governments! The Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution (Article VI, Clause 2) establishes that the Constitution, federal laws made pursuant to it, and treaties made under its authority, constitute the supreme law of the land. It provides that state courts are bound by the supreme law; in case of conflict between federal and state law, the federal law must be applied. Even state constitutions are subordinate to federal law. As you are aware there is a situation growing on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation that boarders both North and South Dakota. The Sioux Nation (Oceti Sakowin) has vowed to stop the Black Snake (DAPL) from destroying our water and crossing our Treaty Land. Today there are thousands of defenders who have come to pray with us and stand with us. Actors, Political leaders, even whole City’s L.A., Seattle has sent in letters of support, Over 500 Tribal Nations, organizations, from here and around the world have spoken out in our support including the United Nations and the Pope. Only to land in deaf ears! The Governor of North Dakota and his Police Department continue to mount up false accusations and false charges against the defenders, from attack dogs, to vigilante Corporate Security guard’s. The Morton County Sheriff’s Department have stated they will be escalating their war tactics and become more "proactive" in stopping those of us on the frontlines from protecting Sacred Water by killing the Black Snake. Jack Dalyrmple, the Governor of North Dakota has shares in DAPL and is invested personally. (Conflict of interest) This politician is using the armed police as his personal army to protect his money! We call on him and the police to cease and desist in this terrorism against unarmed indigenous people upholding our duty to protect our water and land. Oceti Sakowin, (Sioux Nation) Standing Rock encampment needs your help! Call the Morton County Sheriff’s Office at 701-667-3330 and tell them to stop creating a situation of intense danger against the people. What do they expect will happen? Do they think we will just pack up and leave? Because of winter? That’s not going to happen! We are used to surviving with little or nothing! This is our normal! We can and will out survive the elements. The Governor and his Sheriff are trying their best to escalate this situation so they can justify violence against the defenders. They need to be stopped before someone gets hurt! When that happens don’t expect us to turn and run! That’s not going to happen. We are Lakota’s! We have vowed to stop this and we will! Through prayer! As you may have heard in the news the U.S. Court of Appeals Rules against Standing Rock Tribe in Dakota Access Pipeline Case! This will not stop us! This fight should be based on our treaty and fought in the Courts! We have nothing to lose! And everything to gain! We have made our stand and we will hold our ground! As the world watches! In closing I will ask all of you to look into your hearts and souls and ask yourself is this right or wrong! Then pick up your phones, send E-mails whatever you have to do to stop this from escalating to the next level! We all drink water! Without it we will die! We will! Continue to stand our ground! We have no other choice. “Wocekiye gluha naunjinpelo.. Okicizecinpehantas, Okicizewicunkupektelo” ~ United Urban Warrior Society ~
$ 3.9 Million to a White Man for Wounded Knee?...NO WAY!
How sad Tim Giago (Mario Gonzales is involved) is promoting the Commercialization of Wounded Knee! I wonder if he has consulted the relatives of those buried there first?....and why would he pay 3.8 Million for land owned by a white man smack in the middle of a reservation?...Something wrong here! United Urban Warrior Society will NOT support this!....Assimilation at its best! “United Urban Warrior Society” doesn’t support this at all and will stand with those who oppose it! and will host a couple rallies this summer at the Wounded Knee Site & Tims news Paper "Native Sun news" Please contact them and tell them NO! WAY!: P.O. Box 9344 Rapid City, SD. 57709 Phone: 605.716.5421 Fax: 605.716.5425 Giago: “I signed an agreement to be the sole purchaser of Wounded Knee. The reason is that it has been sitting there idle and doing nothing for over 40 years.” Then he said: “I said the land would be put into trust for all of the tribes of the Great Sioux Nation.” There is MAJOR! Questions here about Giago's true motivation and intent here. If purchase does occur, who is he planning on holding it in trust with? The Federal Government???? When you start looking at this deal it starts to smell. After Wounded Knee '73 old Gildersleve sold this to Czwyczynski for $ 20,000. Now this brings up 2 questions. 1) How the heck did Gildersleve ever get a clear title to those 40 acres anyway? According to the 1868 treaty a Whiteman cannot own land within the boundaries of the reservation! unless he is married to a Native who is an enrolled member, but when she dies it goes to her family NOT the white guy! The Gildersleve illegally sold this land and the Oglala Sioux Tribe should fight this and retain the land! From what I have been told the BIA made this mistake and hasn’t got the balls to fight it! Or being paid off to look the other way! 2). Why is Giago willing to pay $ 3,900,000? That's MILLION dollars for something that sold for $ 20,000. In the 1970’s? Trust me; he's greasing his and Mario’s palm somehow on this deal. Mario Gonzales is involved here we know its about money and this alone draws many red flags! What about the other land owners around this site? What is their input? From what I have been told they are not happy about this deal either. I have been told that Tim Giago has never done anything for the Memorial at Wounded Knee. Back in 1973 he supported Dick Wilson’s regime. Dick & his goons used Tim's paper “Lakota Times" to trash & condemn AIM & murder our people at that time. So, Mr. Giago has blood on his hands. It is well known that Tim Giago has attacked and wrote stories against the American Indian Movement “Blaming them for firebombing his news paper‘s office in Pine Ridge”. He has also spoken against Leonard Peltier, slamming those who would support him. Giago says: he has already created a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called the National Historic Site of Wounded Knee Inc. There is a Wounded Knee Memorial already there at the site! But because it is associated to The American Indian Movement he will not support it nor recognize it.(Own by the Fire Lighting Tiospaye!) Giago: My attorney is Mario Gonzalez, who is Oglala Lakota, and he will be putting together the trust for all the tribes. Scared of this! Mario has been removed from the Treaty Council and has been involved in several scams to get money from the Black Hills! Giago has also talked with former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle in Washington DC and several friends in New York City to begin fundraising efforts in Washington DC and New York. (This boils my blood! Why would we ask the same Government who massacred our people in cold blood and still honor 18-medals of honor to the soldiers who killed innocent woman and children at this site!) Giago: Can you imagine a really beautiful Holocaust Museum and a big trade pavilion for Indian artisans and craftspeople? They could set up booths year-round and sell their arts and crafts to the tourists. We would have tourists come from all over the world and stay in Rapid City go to the restaurants and hotels, Take buses to Wounded Knee, It would create over 200 jobs For the people down there. It would be also a boost financially to Rapid City, South Dakota,” he says. Are you kidding me? Here is the true motive right here! He said it in his own words! Why would we want to boost Rapid City and not Pine Ridge? A little side note here folks! In all this talk there has been NO mention of those Murdered here! Those Ancestors buried there are not all Ogalala’s they are Miniconju’s and Hunkpapa’s From Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Have their relatives been asked about this? And are they involved? They must have a say in this matter! This land should be returned back to the tribe and the land must! If sold be sold at a fair market value…and ANYONE wanting to build a memorial on this sacred ground must have the approval of the families of those buried there and an agreement with landowners nearby! As well as an agreement to include or support the Wounded Knee Take over in 1973! Without predigests! When I first posted that we would not support this I recieved this response from Time Giago! “Hi James. I am sorry you are so angry that I have set out to buy the lands around Wounded Knee. I think this is a time we should all pull together. My feelings about AIM and Leonard Peltier should have nothing to do with what we are trying to accomplish. There is no one who has worked harder to save the Black Hills than Mario Gonzalez. He litigated for the Black Hills in 1980 before the Supreme Court and the Hills would have been assumed purchased if he had not represented several tribes in litigating this action. The preservation of the Wounded Knee site is of historic importance and as I said the land would be put into trust for all of the tribes of the Great Sioux Nation. What is wrong with that? I need your help and not your anger. Tim” In closing Mario Gonzalez did not! Litigate for the Black Hills in 1980 before the Supreme Court! It was the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council who he at the time he worked for and was asked by the elders to do this! They dismissed him because he was scamming moneys and have since been caught a couple times with his hands in the cookie jar! This is a bad deal! Why would we keep buying our own lands back from the white people at 10 times the value when it still belongs to us as per the 1868 Treaty! Something wrong here people! Think about it! Then to turn around and ask us to chip in when our people and community’s are some of the poorest in the Nation? Hecetu Welo, Mitakuyepi, nis inyan tankunl iyapo! Here is the original post!

"Rainbow Warriors" Stay away from The Black Hills of South Dakota! ~ U.U.W.S ~
Note: To Rainbow Warriors..From U.U.W.S.June 11, 2015 at 7:38pm So we get the info (Late) that the “Rainbow Warrior” Tribe or whatever you call yourselves “I really don’t care” were planning to come to the Black Hills! On a personal note I have no issues with your group! It’s a free world as long as you don’t push your ways on mine! And you did! We knew you had a meeting coming up on the 17th to decide where this event would take place! I may or may not show up! A racist? I don’t think so; I just don’t like your White is right mentality! After reading hundreds of comments from Rain bow pages, I ask! Who is the racist? All we did is asked that you honor an agreement from years past that you made with our people! Stating you would not do this unless invited! And you attacked right off! You’re not different from those invaders who came and overed on our land, disrespected our people, killing most of us off and imposing your belief system on us! The only difference now is your not killing our people! We don’t want your drugs, alcohol, Nudity, using parts of our spirituality in your rituals!, your free love, your lingo, your fashions, etc..We have our own! Finding a couple skins on the reservation to welcome you don’t work! There are those “loaf around the fort Indians” who sold the rest of us out back then and still doing it today! If they are who you say they are! Why haven’t they spoken up, in your defense? They know how to contact me or others and they haven’t said a word! What’s that tell you! So you say you are peaceful and respect our Lakota people? You haven’t shown any respect! Remember respect is earned not demanded! For those of you who claim to be leaders! Lead by example! If not then you people are no different than a bunch of sheep! And no different from those who invaded our lands from the East. I will say this! I have met a bunch of you and do find some of you to be legit! Friendly and supportive to those I offer an apology for my aggressiveness & language! but that’s what it took to get your attention.”The greasy wheel gets the grease” As far as the rest of you who show no respect! You can burn in hell for all I care! I can handle it and encourage it! Bring whatever you think you got! Not saying I would win or lose but I will stand my ground! No matter what! We have no fear! So in closing all we are asking is to take your event somewhere else! Your ways are not ours and we don’t want to share our ways with you “Spiritually” I have no problem excepting some of you as friends! Or standing with you on political or environmental issues! But I am a Lakota! You are not us and we are not you! Respect that! Stop imposing yourself on us! If you want us to respect you as you are then respect us as we are!
