  1. except… this is wrong. The Lakota were a violent tribe who were hated by their neighboring tribes, a violent tribe, the kind of native american who actually scalped people. Sure we were fucked up in killing them at wounded knee, but we give them, MONTHLY, money and resources for them to use. what do they do? Buy booze and gamble. I know, I live in this fucking state. 'The White Man' did not murder a majority of fucking native americans. SMALLPOX did. a mass majority of native american lives were taken by disease accidentally brought over that they did not have an immunity to. These people either need to stay on the reservation and stop asking for help, or integrate with the rest of us and become useful members of society. They get free hand outs monthly and don't have to follow any of our laws, or pay any form of taxes. Why? Because the color of their skin. Because we conquered them.

  2. i have watched this video many times n it still brings tears to my eyes it shows wat the lakotas and the Dakotas went through our eople suffered but we still survived n still remain to be strong but this has touched my heart to let the wasicus look at wat is still happening we natives are always put on the back burner wen it comes to support they send moneys over seas

  4. Long live Aaron Huey and all the beautiful Natives this country belonged to and always will!!! Long live all those who open their hearts to the truth and take action!!

  5. 3:18 – 3:37 “1863. An uprising of Santee Sioux in Minnesota ends with the hanging of 38 Sioux men. The largest mass execution in US history. The execution was ordered by president Lincoln only two days (dramatic pause) after he signed the emancipation proclamation.”
    At your next presentation, try this:
    1863. An uprising of Santee Sioux in Minnesota ends with the trial and death sentence of 303 Sioux men. Orders of execution are put on Abraham Lincoln’s desk. Lincoln’s response is a simple, courageous declaration: “I could not afford to hang men for votes.” Lincoln took the politically dangerous action of intervening and pardoning – and thus saving the lives – of 265 Sioux men. 87% of those convicted. It is most fitting that this noble and brave act occurred just two days after he signed the emancipation proclamation. After officially proclaiming that enslaved blacks living on US soil were herby free, the rescuing of 265 Sioux from being lynched by a horde of vengeful whites was the greatest achievement of Abraham Lincoln’s presidency. Thousands of Sioux who are the descendants of those 265 owe him their lives.
    Don’t ever twist facts and omit truths in order to spit on the greatest president in American history.

  9. There’s a lot of blaming against the U.S. government but the speaker doesn’t address why the reservations remain in poverty. He doesn’t offer solutions to better the reservations or point out why federal programs geared to assisting people below the poverty line aren’t working. In other words, he paints the tragic history of the Indians and without really talking about present issues. A lot of problems, no solutions. Just blames the government for violating treaties and massacres.

  10. I am ashamed; ashamed for being white, ashamed for being of the European stock that initially brought about all this misery, not only in North America but also in Australasia, Africa, wherever we went. I am ashamed for you Americans who continue to allow this treatment of your brothers and sisters, ashamed that these attitudes persist wherever you go in the world: in the Far East, Africa, the Middle East – across the globe. Please will you learn and watch how other countries have and continue to pull back from these attitudes and actions. People should and must learn that making money is usually at the expense of those already less fortunate.

  11. the actual translation is; "they took the fat. "
