Special Notice - Nov. 4 2015

For years, we have been saying there is no safe dose of radioactivity for human health.  Now our position is supported by a study from the World Health Organization. 

For more on this study, go to  http://www.globalresearch.ca/prolonged-exposure-to-even-low-level-radiation-increases-the-risk-of-cancer-world-health-organization-who/5485386

For those of us living in the Northern Great Plains, this includes radioactivity in the dust we breathe and the water we drink.  Please wear dust filters and distill your water if you can.  Push your tribal governments to install water filters on your water to capture radioactive particles.  Too many of our people are dying from cancer.  We have the highest cancer rates in the USA.

Am sending a big report to the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Hazardous Wastes soon.  If you wish a copy, let me know.

Thank you.

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."
