Blizzard Relief Needed! Snow storms hit SD and impacts Native & non-Native Communities-You can help!
All week I have been getting alerts about the storms that have hammered parts of South Dakota. Snow blizzards have been causing the brunt of the power outages and there are people who have especially been hit hard on some of the Reservations. Rescue efforts have begun, but others can't get out or do not want to leave their homes. We can help out by sending food, warm clothes, blankets, money to non-profits helping with the rescue efforts. Tune in Saturday at 10am-noon (when I/my callers have free minutes) and we will focus our energy, love and prayers on South Dakota and the Rez's who need help at this time, due to the season of Winter starting for them now...
Please tell your friends and family to listen, call in as well, if they have news from that area, first hand stories and or ideas and/or can offer ideas of their own.

Keep checking my blog for updates & guests TBA….lots of good music too- we will remember and pay tribute to Floyd Red Crow Westerman during part of the show…..
Custer Died for Your Sins/The Land Is Your Mother by Floyd Westerman (Audio CD - 1993)
“Like most Native Americans of his generation, Floyd Westerman was wrenched away from the arms of his family at the age of five and sent off to a government boarding school nearly 100 miles away. These blatant attempts to destroy Indian civilization by breaking up families and making traditions obsolete became one of many subjects Westerman would take on when he developed into an important Native American protest singer and actor.
A Dakota Sioux, Westerman remained at the boarding school for the next 12 years, until he had finished high school. By this time he had learned guitar after watching… Read more”

RE: a cry for help for Winona LaDuke!!!
----------------- Bulletin Message -----------------
From: rezervations on www. nv1.org

This past weekend, Winona's house had an electrical fire and the house burnt to the ground. No one was hurt. While the house and its contents are gone, the blessing is that all five kids and three grandchildren are safe.
I'm writing to you because I know Winona won't ask for help, and I also know
she really needs our support.
Winona bought her house about 20 years ago and it was filled with art, books, music, photos and other collectibles that
reflected her story and the story of her family.
What will be most missed
are these memories, and we can recreate some of them.
Photos: One positive thing about being a public figure is that lots of folks
have photos of you and your children.
We have a good collection at Honor the
Earth but I'm asking if you could go through your pictures and send photos
you have of the family, especially the kids.
Wasey and Ajuwak were born
before the digital age so a lot of the photos of them growing up are gone.
Photos would mean a lot.
Movement T-shirts and Art: The kids all had an amazing collection of
movement t-shirts that comprised the bulk of their wardrobe.
basically shopped for her kids at the events she attended around the world.
If you have any political message shirts or shirts from historic activist
events in sizes Small, Large or X-Large, I know the kids would cherish them.
Zapatista shirts are a favorite.
Also gone is Winona's amazing collection of
posters and art from decades past. I know she would appreciate any no-nukes, safe energy, anti-colonial, no-gmo and Native activist art.
Books: Winona had a library that fed her mind and soul, and that she often
turned to for research material.
If you can send books, fiction and
non-fiction, she can begin her collection again.
Lastly, Winona has a newborn grandson, Little Crow, who along with her two
toddler grandchildren lost all of their clothes and blankets.
coming and the family could really use any warm baby clothes along with
clothes and outerwear for a two year old girl and a large two year old boy
(Giwaadan is a size 4 toddler!).
These are the things -- photos, t-shirts and art, books and baby/toddler
clothing that I think would be most helpful right now, and would touch the
Winona and the kids are renting an apartment in Detroit Lakes and will be
staying there over the winter while envisioning building a new home.
now, the best shipping address is White Earth Land Recovery/Honor the Earth
office up in Calloway:

I am so appreciative to have all of you to turn to for support.
I send warm
thoughts and love your way, and deep thanks that we all have such a
wonderful circle of family and friends.

"Expertly depicts the story of the Vietnam Donut Dollies who provided comfort and support to troops in combat and captures the courage, sensitivity, commitment and humanitarian service of young women serving in Vietnam during most trying and heroic times." --Gerald DeFrancisco, President, Humanitarian Services, American Red Cross
During the Vietnam War 627 adventurous young women threw off society's expectations and headed out to learn what they could do for their country. The Vietnam "Donut Dollies" were airmobile to the front lines, dropping into dusty firebases and sweaty base camps to bring a listening ear, a silly game, and a friendly smile to combat soldiers. Their year at war armed only with a smile would affect each of them forever. Now, for the first time, their words, home movies and photographs tell the captivating, extraordinary story of women who made a difference by bringing A Touch of Home to the combat zone.
In honor of the fifteenth anniversary of the Vietnam Women's Memorial, we are pleased to announce the Veterans Day, 2008 release of A Touch of Home: The Vietnam War's Red Cross girls.
premiere poster The documentary premiered November 9 to a sold-out audience at the Women In Military Service to America Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. Opening comments by Dr. Jim Fulbrook of the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association, United States Army Brigadier General (P) Gina Farrissee, and American Red Cross President for Humanitarian Services Gerald DeFrancisco introduced the tribute event to the remarkable Vietnam War American Red Cross Girls.

Remarkable Women...Remarkable Story
We heard about the Donut Dollies through the Huey pilots who flew them, way back in 2001 when we were doing research for a documentary about a Huey's journey across America. When that journey finally lifted off years later, we met Red Cross Girls at Landing Zones around the nation. Intrigued by their story from the beginning, we soon grew enthralled with the women themselves. Spunky, vivacious, gutsy, funny, proud, and smart to a woman, the Vietnam Donut Dollies speak of their time at war with a sense of pride familiar to any soldier, marine, airman or sailor.
They were Kennedy kids "with a thirst for adventure and a desire to do something real." Their experience in Vietnam has affected each of them differently, but affected them all. This documentary captures their look back at war in their own words, with a rich collection of photos and home movies they took of the firebases and landing zones and base camps where they served.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll hear the story of your war from a woman's perspective in way you've never heard it told before. Please join us in meeting "the most remarkable women you'll ever meet" -- The Vietnam War's Red Cross Girls!
