Uranium Mining

Our Informational Meeting on the Riley Pass Abandoned Uranium Mine in the North Cave Hills in Northwestern South Dakota went well this past weekend.

We have some new sites to get the word out specifically about the uranium mines, abandoned and new.

Kudos and our deepest gratitude to Harold One Feather and John LeKay for all their volunteer work in getting these together.

Also at spaces.msn.com/uraniummine/? Harold is going to put the Defenders video about the destruction in the Black Hills.? Anyone wishing a copy of the 12 min. CD, please email us your request. We can make video copies too at $7 for the costs to make the copy.? It's done very well and was put together by Chris Hollis, Seventh Generation Fund.

Thanks also to those who responded to the call to help KILI Radio station.? They still have a long way to go but each dollar helps.

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."
