Summary

defendbannerOn Monday November 2nd 2015, corrupt Oglala Sioux Tribe officials gathered in a secret meeting and terminated respected Lakota elder Mary Felicia from her job as Site Director and cook for the Meals for the Elderly program in the Porcupine District for her outspoken advocacy of grassroots elders.

Mary’s politically motivated termination is only the most recent example of the graft and corruption that controls the Bureau of Indian Affairs Oglala Sioux Tribe (OST) and the Meals for the Elderly program in particular. Greedy politicians and criminal families use programs like Meals for the Elderly to embezzle money and then exert abusive control over the real grassroots Lakota people furthering the system of colonial genocide.

U.S. Congressional representatives and agency bureaucrats go along with OST lies to avoid investigations that will reveal the truth about this corrupt and abusive system.

The elders have asked the Cante Tenza Strong Heart Warrior Society of the Independent Lakota Nation to seek accountability for these abuses with uncaring U.S. officials, the International Community, and others to promote change that will create a future for the grassroots people on Pine Ridge. Hoka Hey!
