Helping Hands of Wounded Knee, encompasses the entire Pine Ridge Reservation. We provide schools with items teachers need that their budgets won't allow them to purchase, every year we supply a growing number of kids with all the school supplies they need. The reservation is very large and we know that we can't fix all the problems here so we focus on helping the children to be and feel equal to their non-native counterparts by providing them with items and opportunities that the rest of the nation has: decent food, shelter, heat, water and clothes. We help the elders have a easier daily life by providing them things that most of the nation would take for granted, things like washers and dryers, microwaves, heat, and food. We have an elders sponsor program that not only gives the elders another resource for help but also helps the sponsors by dispelling many of the myths that America has about the Native Americans.

End Poverty on Pine Ridge Save the last of the Lakota people from abolute poverty.

End Poverty on Pine Ridge

Save the last of the Lakota people from abolute poverty.


The Native American Lakota tribe now resides on a reservation called "Pine Ridge." It is the poorest county in all of the United States. It sits in the shadow of one of our countries greatest political momuments, Mount Rushmore. The Badlands reside just off the edge of the "rez."

Life in the Pine Ridge Reservation is very poor, probably easily comparable to the least developed countries of the Third World. Unemployment on the Reservation hovers around 85% and 97% live below the Federal poverty level.[citation needed] Average annual family income is $3,800 as of 1999.[1] Adolescent suicide is four times the national average. Many of the families have no electricity, telephone, running water, or sewer. Many families use wood stoves to heat their homes. The population on Pine Ridge has among the shortest life expectancies of any group in the Western Hemisphere: approximately 47 years for males and in the low 50s for females. The infant mortality rate is five times the United States national average.

Despite the lack of formal employment opportunities on Pine Ridge, there is a great deal of agricultural production taking place, yet only a small percentage of the tribe directly benefits from this. According to the USDA, in 2002 there was nearly 33 million dollars in receipts from agricultural production on Pine Ridge, yet less than 1/3rd of that income went to members of the tribe USDA 2002 Census of Agriculture for Native American Reservations.

To see the poverty of this reservation watch "Skins" a film by Chris Eyre.

The United States government and the United States people in general, like to casually forget that the Pine Ridge Reservation even exists. They like to forget the Massacre at Wounded Knee ever happened. This CANNOT continue. The children of Pine Ridge don't have roofs to sleep under! Their parents don't have enough money to feed them, to cloth them, to keep them warm. This is a real problem folks. Something must be done.


  1. Poverty for these people must end immediately.
  2. The children of the rez need decent homes to live in and decent education.
  3. The men and women of the Oglala Suix Tribe deserve respect.

I, Geronimo Rubio don't understand why these people got medals for the senseless Murder Massacre of Native People. I see this petition over & over again and I completely agree that all medals should be removed from these people. This petition has been surfacing for at least the last 10 years. I sign it every time it lets me and you should too.

Under cover of the night on December 23, a band of 350 people left the Miniconjou village on the Cheyenne River to begin a treacherous 150-mile, week-long trek through the Badlands to reach the Pine Ridge Agency. Although Chief Big Foot was aged and seriously ill with pneumonia, his group traversed the rugged, frozen terrain of the Badlands in order to reach the protection of Chief Red Cloud who had promised them food, shelter, and horses. It is reported that both Big Foot and Red Cloud wanted peace. On December 28, the group was surrounded by Major Samuel M. Whitside and the Seventh Calvary (the old regiment of General George Custer). Big Foots band hoisted a white flag, but the army apprehended the Indians, forcing them to the bank of Wounded Knee Creek. There, four large Hotchkiss cannons had been menacingly situated atop both sides of the valley overlooking the encampment, ready to fire upon the Indians.

A rumor ran through the camp that the Indians were to be deported to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) which had the reputation for its living conditions being far worse than any prison. The Lakotas became panicky, and historians have surmised that if the misunderstanding had been clarified that they were to be taken to a different camp, the entire horrific incident might have been averted.

That evening, Colonel James Forsyth arrived with reinforcements and took over as commander of the operation. The Indians were not allowed to sleep as the soldiers interrogated them through the night. (It has been reported that many of the questions were to determine who among the group had been at Little Bighorn fourteen years earlier. In addition, eyewitnesses claimed that the soldiers had been drinking to celebrate the capture of the ailing Big Foot.)

The soldiers ordered that the Indians be stripped of their weapons, and this further agitated an increasingly tense and serious situation. While the soldiers searched for weapons, a few of the Indians began singing Ghost Dance songs, and one of them (thought to be the medicine man, Yellow Bird, although this is still disputed by historians) threw dirt in a ceremonial act. This action was misunderstood by the soldiers as a sign of imminent hostile aggression, and within moments, a gun discharged. It is believed that the gun of a deaf man, Black Coyote, accidentally fired as soldiers tried to take it from him. Although the inadvertent single shot did not injure anyone, instantaneously the soldiers retaliated by spraying the unarmed Indians with bullets from small arms, as well as the Hotchkiss canons which overlooked the scene.

(Hotchkiss canons are capable of firing two pound explosive shells at a rate of fifty per minute.)

With only their bare hands to fight back, the Indians tried to defend themselves, but the incident deteriorated further into bloody chaos, and the 350 unarmed Indians were outmatched and outnumbered by the nearly 500 U.S. soldiers.

The majority of the massacre fatalities occurred during the initial ten to twenty minutes of the incident, but the firing lasted for several hours as the army chased after those who tried to escape into the nearby ravine. According to recollections by some of the Indian survivors, the soldiers cried out "Remember the Little Bighorn" as they sportingly hunted down those who fled -- evidence to them that the massacre was in revenge of Custers demise at Little Bighorn in 1876.
(Recorded by Santee Sioux, Sid Byrd, from oral histories of several survivors.)

Many of the injured died of exposure in the freezing weather, and several days after the incident the dead were strewn as far as approximately two to five miles away from the original site. By mid-afternoon on December 29, 1890 the indiscriminate slaughter ceased. Nearly three-hundred men (including Chief Big Foot), women, and children -- old and young -- were dead on the frosty banks of Wounded Knee Creek. Twenty-nine soldiers also died in the melee, but it is believed that most of the military causalities were a result of "friendly" crossfire that occurred during the fighting frenzy. Twenty-three soldiers from the Seventh Calvary were later awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for the slaughter of defenseless Indians at Wounded Knee.

We are asking that these Medals of DIS Honor awarded to the members of the 7th Calvary of the United States Army for the murder of innocent women children and men on that terrible December morning be rescinded.

And that the Battle Pennant on the Flag of the United States Army be removed and destroyed

Stephen Hawking's comment about Native Americans

Now my friends,
I, Geronimo Rubio, don't know to much about these so called "Aliens from Outer Space" (Illegal Aliens From Outer Space The Cat From Outer Space) coming down here and owning the planet as in this interview with Stephen Hawking's. But I do agree with his statement about the "Murdering Christopher Columbus" (Christopher Columbus and the Conquest of Paradise: Second Edition (Tauris Parke Paperbacks) (Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust: Slavery and the Rise of European Capitalism) and how it was "Not so good for the Native Americans" of this country.

The renowned and brilliant Stephen Hawking made a statement that included the Native Americans and the impact upon us made by Columbus in a worldwide press covered interview. Thought you might like to see this. Wonderful to have some truth come out and speak to the entire world for a change!!!

Here's an excerpt of the article and the highlighted quote in red print. Link to the entire article is at the bottom:

Volcanoes, tornadoes, wars and earthquakes, melting ice caps and disappearing glaciers all are not bad enough these mad, latter times; now, planetary Uber brain, Stephen Hawking tells us not to count on any heavenly encounters of the extraterrestrial kind to pull this weary race's fat out of the fire.

Hawking tells the London Times, not only are alien races mathematically certain, they're just as likely too to be marauding remnants of dead planets, desperately seeking an island of refuge in a very large sea. He suggested, should Earth be visited by such a crew, the results would be far from welcomed, saying;

"If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."

Water Alert ! Indians under seige!

Dear friends Geronimo Rubio,

Here is a letter from Laura Furtman about more atrocities being attempted by those who wish to destroy Sacred Native Lands yet again. We are "First Nation, American Indian, Native, Indigenous". This was (And as far as I am concerned still) our land and we have to protect the Sacred Sites of our Ancestor's. Please read the letter and help where you feel your able too.

Dear friends of Roscoe
I don't do this very often, but this is a call to rally the troops.

As you likely know, folks in Michigan's far North in the Upper Peninsula have been battling Kennecott for nearly five years now. Kennecott/Rio Tinto proposes to blast a portal to its new metallic sulfide mine through a sacred site to the Ojibwe known as Eagle Rock, Migizi Waasin. Recently, it seems, Kennecott (the same company that mined at Ladysmith and is proposing to mine in Aitkin County, Minnesota as well as in Michigan) made a big mistake and arrested a citizen for sitting on a stump with her dog on public land, close to Eagle Rock. The company has a pending lease for the property, but it is conditioned on the company first receiving all necessary permits to mine. One permit (from the EPA) has not yet been granted, so the land lease is not valid (not that it would be, really, even if they had all of their permits).

The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community has taken a strong stand for the land, for the water (the proposed mine site is about ten miles from the shores of Lake Superior) and the sacred site. Right now, about 5 of them are perched atop the site of the mining company's proposed portal. They welcome visitors to the site (you do not have to trespass, you can meet them at the end of the road). They need food, blankets, prayers, spiritual support, emotional support and legal support. If you have suggestions or ideas, if you would like to come for a visit, if you need a place to stay or a little funding for gas, please call me (715-296-0821) or my friend Teresa Bertossi (906-273-0040).

Here's a link to stories about the issue we face: This is a blog recently put up just for the issue.

I thank you from my heart for your help ... in whatever form it might take.

Youth suicides epidemic on tribal reservations - Mental health

Youth suicides epidemic on tribal reservations - Mental health
WASHINGTON - At 15, high school sophomore Coloradas Mangas knows all too much about suicide.
He's recently had several friends who took their own lives, and he survived a suicide attempt himself.
Coloradas, a member of the Chiricahua Apache tribe, lives on the Mescalero Apache Reservation in New Mexico, where there have been five youth suicides since the start of the school year. All were his friends...
