Sacred Defilement. Drilling for oil on the Blackfeet Reservation.

Posted: August 8, 2013 by extremehistory in Uncategorized

Our friend Gheri Osborne, an anthropology student at MSU blackfoot_teepeesand Blackfeet tribal member, expressed her sadness today to learn that the Blackfeet Tribal Council has voted to allow drilling for oil and gas on a sacred mountain. Gheri writes “It saddens me deeply learning the actions of our council and any other people involved in the oil development of one, if not the, most sacred site known to the Blackfeet. I’m sure oil and gas guy on YouTube had plenty to do with this deal….I lost all respect for our council today, I literally cried while making my smudge just now, our ways are strong and we as Blackfeet people need to really band together stop all this fighting group bullshit, and fight for one real cause, what is there to fight about if we lose an essential part of our Identity I don’t want to be telling my grandchildren about how one time we had a sacred mountain where all those oil rigs are now…”

    Im white but I don’t want no oil rigs period. Love to find a new system to replace what is, never fight what is. That is beating the drum and fueling the fire. Instead invest in those products and people that make you feel good. We vote with our dollars. The Earth needs our help more than ever right now and we need hers! Hands in the dirt, embrace her in ways like growing our own food to start, real medicine for our bodies. Its true there are a lot of white looking people who are so entrenched in greed and darkness but black people too. I believe this is a quote from Martin Luther King; We either learn to love one another as brothers and sisters or we will perish as fools. Love to all that dwell within this great home Mother Earth!
