Whiteclay fallout: Women’s Day of Peace march ends with arrests and youth being maced

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

By Vincent Schilling / INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY / August 29, 2012

On August 26, several organizations looking to have a peaceful march of women and children to protest alcohol sales in Whiteclay, Nebraska ended with protestors being carted away in horse trailers, verbal altercations and Native youth being maced.

Autumn Two Bulls, a participant and Pine Ridge Reservation tribal legal liaison is the mother of 10-year-old Wakinyan (Lightning and Thunder.) who was one of the Native youth sprayed in the face with mace by a police officer.

Two Bulls was furious such a thing could happen on a day meant to be peaceful. According to Two Bulls, Whiteclay bar owners had hired grown men to fight protestors. When four of the men began yelling at a 14-year-old Native youth, the police arrested the boy but not the other four men involved in the altercation. Native residents proceeded to blockade the police cruiser while telling the officer they were arresting a minor. More law enforcement arrived shortly after the protestors blockaded the car. (more…)

SICANGU LAKOTA TIMES / August 28, 2012

Modern technology is amazing. There is so much we can do with computers, smart phones, cameras and the Internet. Events can be shared with the world in almost an instant. When you go out in public you cannot really expect any kind of privacy anymore. There is always someone with either a camera equipped cell phone or camcorder to document everything you do. I love it.

On August 26, 2012 the Women’s Day of Peace was held. This event saw a group of concerned Lakota and other people descend upon the small town of White Clay, Nebraska. They went there to demonstrate against the alcohol establishments which have made millions of dollars selling booze. In addition, concerned members of Deep Green Resistance created a human chain across the highway to show how serious they were against the amount of alcohol sold in White Clay. (more…)
