RE: Twelfth Day of Snow Emergency

* Many hundreds of American Indians still snowbound and without electrical power
or water on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
* Sofia Romero, age 98, snowed in, no power, no water, food situation unknown.
* Emme Zimiga, age 96, snowed in, no power, no water, food situation unknown.
* Amanda Milk, age 80's, no legs, dialysis patient, snowed in, presumed dead.
* Hisle SD - 38 households (average of 17 persons per household on Reservation)
still snowed in with out power or water.
* Lost Dog Community - 5 families snowed in, no power, no water, food situation
* Lacreek Electric Association reports that over 1,000 power distribution poles
broken by the storm have been replaced, but dozens more are still down, while repair
efforts have been diverted to the some of the main distribution lines still partially
* Red Cross Effort Vehemently Incompetent - As documented by Marion White Mouse
(605-462-6242), the American Red Cross sent a contingency of one volunteer, Monica
Turkleson who departed the Reservation prematurely on Saturday, November 15th.
Ms. Turkleson's "aide" consisted of nothing and her behavior was reported as impatient,
rude and racist. Russell Means suggests that this organization change its name
to the "White Cross."

Please forward this e-mail to friends, press contacts and bloggers to get the word
May the Great Mystery continue to guide and protect the paths of you and your loved
