Sure as h_ll don't like thinking this let alone saying it, but have an awful feeling in the pit of my stomach that Charlene you really hit a nerve with this one. Am thinking you may be very right here.
Thanks Kat

Those who can't donate money can donate effort and post and forward this everywhere they can. There are countless places you can donate to Haiti, and while I begrudge those poor people nothing I do have to ask WHY every crisis both foreign and domestic seems to garner more media attention, donations and federal response than a crisis on a reservation. The severity of the situation might sometimes be a reason--but NOT all of the time. I have seen many crises which although unfortunate were nowhere even near the severity of a crisis occurring at roughly the same time on a reservation--yet only the domestic crises involving non-natives and foreign crises were being covered. What's the matter, CNN? Aren't natives newsworthy? What's the matter, CBS? Aren't native crises urgent? What's the matter, Fox? Aren't natives sexy enough? Or is there a darker reason, darker even than racism? An agenda best advanced by NOT reporting about suffering and death on reservations, by NOT reporting about the land grabs, by NOT reporting about the greater proportion of swine flue deaths, by NOT reporting on ANYTHING that might engage widespread public sympathy and support for natives? Whose way are natives in now? To whom are natives inconvenient?

Once again, as I have commented on other articles, please contact your Senators and the Bureau of Indian Affairs to let them know that you want help for the Native Americans in crisis NOW.

Thanks Kat for this post. I've been watching the weather reports for those areas. What many of you may not know is that this area was also hit hard in the winter of last year and the only help that seemed to be going out to them was from citizens and native brothers and sisters that spread the word and gave addresses of where to send money for heating fuel and donate warm chlothing and blankets. The meida didn't cover it and the Committee of Indian Affairs failed them too. Looks like a repeat of last year. Everyone needs to contact their Senators and send letters to the committee of Indian Affairs and let them know that citizens out here are aware of their negligence toward the Native American Indains in their times of need.

Prayers rising for everyone on the Cheyenne River Reservation.
Kat i have posted on my twitter page so more people can see and donate.
I agree with Paula L. and i hope that someone will draft a petition to President Obama and the Governor of South Dakota and the Minister of Indian Affairs, to plead their case of negligence and 'obscurity' !
I will absolutely sign !
