What: Justice for Stolen Lives March to protest the unexplained death of Mariah High Hawk and other Lakota and Native people subjected to the violence, death, and mistreatment from the Rapid City/Pennington County police. A sister protest is also called for in Omaha, NE.
When: Wednesday, August 16, 2017. March begins at 11:00am.
Where: March begins in the 1200 block of Silverleaf Avenue (where body was found) and continues to the Rapid City Police Department and Pennington County at 300 Kansas City St, Rapid City, SD 57701. Details of the Omaha protest will be announced when they become available.
Who: Led by the Lakota Strong Heart Warrior Society of the Independent Lakota Nation with support from other groups and individuals. All Indigenous people are welcome and urged to bring photographs and stories of your lost loved ones. The violence and mistreatment must end!
New Information: A private detective of the High Hawk Family has interviewed many witnesses who saw Mariah High Hawk just before her death. A witness has come forward saying she knows the real story of the events leading to her late night demise. But the local police seem uninterested in following up on the information. We ask why no interest from the police and demand Justice for Mariah and all missing, murdered, and mistreated Native people!
The Cante Tenza Okolakiciye or Strong Heart Warrior Society is a traditional Lakota warrior society as well as a modern day human rights movement to assert Lakota independence and enforce Indigenous rights for the Lakota and other Indigenous people of Turtle Island.
