Dear Defenders, friends, and allies,

Recently there has been an effort by a law firm to encourage the people to accept the money that was offered for the sale of the Black Hills.  We knew this would be tried again but trust the Tituwan (Lakota) people not to sell their souls.
Defenders of the Black Hills motto has been from the beginning,  " He Sapa kin Wakan, oheniya kiksuyapo." which means, "Always remember, the Black Hills are sacred."

We have a button/badge with the words, "The Black Hills are not for sale."

These buttons/badges are offered for donations if you would like one.  Please notify us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Mission Statement

"Defenders of the Black Hills is a group of volunteers without racial or tribal boundaries whose mission is to preserve, protect, and restore the environment of the 1851 and 1868 Treaty Territories, Treaties made between the United States and the Great Sioux Nation."

Speaking about radioactive fallout, the late President John F. Kennedy said,

"Even then, the number of children and grandchildren with cancer in their bones, with leukemia in their blood, or with poison in their lungs might seem statistically small to some, in comparison with natural health hazards. But this is not a natural health hazard and it is not a statistical issue. The loss of even one human life, or the malformation of even one baby who may be born long after we are gone, should be of concern to us all. Our children and grandchildren are not merely statistics toward which we can be indifferent."
