Become a member of the Lakota People’s Law Project at: http://lakotalaw.org/donate-new and get stickers (like the one in the picture), t-shirts (The Black Hills Are Not For Sale), and books (Daniel Sheehan’s, The People’s Advocate) depending on your membership level—which starts at only $2 a month! All proceeds go toward assisting the Lakota tribes create their own Child and Family Services Programs.
Not unlike the rest of the country, the Lakota people are hit hard by the taking of their children, often without just cause. Because of the poverty level that exists on the reservations in South Dakota, the Lakota people bear the biggest burden in having their children removed from their families and their communities.

The only way to create a permanent solution to this “kidnapping” of Lakota children from their families and their culture is to redirect federal funding for child and family planning services (foster care being one of those programs) directly to the Lakota tribes so that they can be responsible for their culture’s next generation.

Willie, Neil Young, and Me: Frank Waln Takes the Stage With Legends on Saturday
Omaha, Neb. — A hip-hop artist might seem out of place in the cornfields of rural Nebraska. Not Frank Waln. The 25-year-old Native musician is on the way home, as he performs at Saturday’s “Harvest the Hope,” a Keystone XL oil pipeline protest concert with Willie Nelson and Neil Young. Waln’s hometown on the Rosebud Reservation is only a few hours from the concert in Neligh.
