Nyack,I agree with you.Even though I am Lakota ,I am not blind to the animal abuse of a sacrifice, the history of dog and horse eating, and the posession of slaves attained through tribal wars.
We should be beyond that. Saddened to see that the religion like a tail is wagging the native dog.

Yea... wherever religion comes into the picture, i suppose there will always be some controversy- two tribes don't even see the handling of the bald eagle exactly the same way, even tho they share the same reservation~

"The fact that two tribes do not share the same beliefs about the handling of a bird sacred to both speaks to the complexity of two sovereign nations inhabiting a single reservation."

Signed & posted to Twitter. Thank you Cal for posting this critical petition.

In 2010, President Barack Obama publicly endorsed the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Article 26 of this resolution states, “Indigenous peoples have the right to the lands, territories and resources which they have traditionally owned, occupied or otherwise used or acquired.” The article also specifies that native peoples have the right to govern this land in their traditional manner and the sovereign state they inhabit is obligated to provide “legal recognition and protection” of the land.
