Apparently, one of the leaders of the Oglala Sioux tribe in South Dakota has decided she's not going to put up with this "banning abortion" shit. She says, "I will personally establish a Planned Parenthood clinic on my own land which is within the boundaries of the Pine Ridge Reservation where the State of South Dakota has absolutely no jurisdiction."

Check it out.


Ha, I was going to email that to you this morning.

I think some enterprising Indian tribe ought to create a place for 18+ kids to drink... they join the military at 17, so why not?

right, if there's anything native americans know about, it's alcohol.

I can't tell if the prior comment is racist or if it's calling out a note of racism in Pete Bogs' comment. Instead of trying to figure it out on limited information, or worse yet delete the suckers, I will change the subject. Could anyone point me to a good reliable source of info on tribal sovereignty?

advocates file good info under "resources" pretty reliably on their web pages. very useful.

(maybe neither ... maybe just not this honky volunteering to pitch the liquor store idea to any given tribal council)
