Lakota Desperate, Ignored in Relief Efforts

Censored News makes a special appeal to musicians and actors raising funds for Haiti. Please continue this important effort, but please consider doing the same for the Lakota who are cold and hungry and in need of heat, on Pine Ridge in South Dakota.
Madonna, Julia Roberts, Jackson Browne, Susan Sarandon and all the others, you could bring hope to those who are cold and hungry, especially the elderly and children. -- Censored News

It's about time that the 'pro-feminist' community gave back for all that is has taken from indigenous people. However, you forgot to mention that there are numerous fake charities being set up by "feminists" neo-pagans for the sole purpose of swindling people out of their money. Two of them are the NAHA Native American Heritage Associaiton, a false charity and the Morningstar foundation. It would be much more helpful if people were contacting the legislature and DEMANDING federal disaster assistance for the FIRST NATIONS of this country who have been forgotten by the mainstream until it is time to rape their culture for it's "cool" value.

Hello Cecil,

I heartily welcome you to provide this blog with any and all information on any white organisations, profeminist or not, neopagan or not, new age or not, that are led or run or plagued by charlatans and scoundrels.

The limit to which white society will violate and attempt to degrade Indigenous nations and their people seems boundless.

And I'd be glad for this blog to be one place that posts information about such underhanded, exploitive, anti-Indigenist genocidal groups.

No matter how many times it is said to white society in the U.S.: "The Genocide Continues", it seems like it always falls on ears that wish not to hear that message, or do anything about it to assist Indigenous people in bringing relief and land and empowerment to people who have had so much stolen.

But, yes, especially any organisation or group that claims to be profeminist--by all means, please let me know everything you wish to share here. It will get posted.

Thank you so much for taking the time to put out that alert, to sound that alarm, and to provide readers with the appropriate people to contact to register opposition to such thievery and assault.
