WANBLEE, PINE RIDGE, South Dakota -- When Lakotas in Wanblee said they were told to remain in quarantine, and then left isolated without food, readers on social media responded quickly on Friday.

In one household, Don Doyle said there was only one grocery drop provided for his family of 17 people.

That one grocery drop lasted Doyle and his house 3 days.

When the Native Sun News Today article was posted about the Lakota families without food, Natalie Stites Means, already part of a team cooking meals for those in quarantine in Rapid City, shared the article.

Among the good hearts who were heart-broken when they read the story was Bill Knight, who immediately offered to buy groceries and drive the food out from Rapid City.

"I am getting them out there tomorrow, plan on leaving at noon from Rapid," Bill said late Saturday. "Buying all the perishables (meat, fruit, and veggies) tomorrow morning."

"This is about 400 bucks worth of dried goods, plan on spending an additional $600 on meat and whatnot. A lot of people donated!" Bill said, sharing the photo above.

Among those responding immediately was Wild Idea Buffalo.

"Wild Idea Buffalo company donated 10 pounds of ground buffalo and a chuck," Bill said.

On Sunday, Bill finished purchasing fresh fruits, vegetables and meats, and delivered the carload of groceries to Wanblee.

Earlier, Native Sun News Today reporter Travis Dewes wrote the article, Wanblee: Quarantined without Food.

Dewey wrote, "At least two residents of the Eagle’s Nest district on the Pine Ridge Reservation have struggled receiving groceries while they were quarantined in their homes for possible coronavirus exposures."

Don Doyle, a resident of Wanblee, said that his house of 17 people was ordered to quarantine after his daughter had tested positive for the virus in mid-May."

The family of Phyllis Swift Hawk is also in quarantine after a relative tested positive. Phyllis' family of eleven people also ran out of food.

“I had to give up my meals a few times for my grandchildren,” she said, “but I had broth, and that’s okay too.”

Swift Hawk has been a resident of Wanblee since 1964, and has worked at Oglala Lakota College for 43 years.

Doyle, 67, was a member of law enforcement for 23 years, and his grandfather was a code talker in World War I and World War II.

At Censored News we asked Bill for permission to share this story and to share the PayPal for those who want to donate. Bill said he is keeping receipts of all expenditures to show accountability. To donate to this effort:

Mohawk Nation News 'Police and Military -- Largest Cult in the World'

 Police and Military -- Largest Cult in the World

To: Governor Cuomo of New York State, Chris Cuomo of CNN, New York Times, Mohawk Nation News
From: an onkehonweh of turtle island.
Army of the Frontier stands firm against Indian Outbreaks despite Retrenchement and Red-Tape
MNN. June 13, 2020. The definition of a cult – “order followers’. The following video taken of the vicious unwarranted attack on the rotinshoinni [original peoples]] on May 18, 1997 at Onondaga is a prime example of systemic ongoing injustice in New York State. SEE video [8 mins].
Everybody is now talking about outlawing the chokehold. They should outlaw all racist beatings and injustices. Perpetrators should be dealt with harshly and quickly so it will never happen again. This brutality started with the first uninvited settler colonists. It’s a bubble that needs to burst. The cult is trying to fulfil the ultimate goal of their corporate business plan known as Canada and the United States. COVID19 is being used to lock down everyone on earth. They will continue to protect themselves and keep a tight control on turtle island and the world. Their laws work very well for the white rulers, liars, thieves and cheats. We original people are forced to live under the systemic injustice, racism, oppression and genocide that has been perfected by them and spread throughout the world.
  1. All US presidents up to Lincoln owned African slaves. They are the ultimate hypocrites.
  2. Systemic racism is the basis of the US corporation that squats on our land from pole to pole and ocean to ocean. Some original people survived the genocide of 150 million natives throughout turtle island.
  3. We refused to be slaves. Europeans kidnapped the Africans to be their slaves here.
  4. When slavery was abolished in 1865, the blacks were emancipated and became soldiers for the whites to continue the genocide of the natives. We called them “Buffalo Soldiers” because of their nappy hair like a buffalo. They wiped out 60 million buffaloes to starve out the original peoples. They were manning the gatling guns on the Sioux at Wounded Knee in 1890. The blacks continue to glorify what they did for the white man.   Then they were disbanded and diverted to other useful purposes of the whites.
  5. The United States designed a system of racism to control the former slaves, the riffraff and to eventually extinguish the surviving onkwehonweh [original peoples]. This system continues to be enforced by mainly white police and military, protected by a private court system with no accountability, responsibility, and liability.
  1. The system of “divide and conquer” works well for the 1% worldwide.
  1. The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis exposed this system. He was murdered by a lethal chokehold that was used on us, Palestinians and others with impunity. Now there is worldwide condemnation.
It is our duty under the great law of peace, kaianerekowa, to stop the ongoing threat to the land and the people. This is summarized in the “Two-Row Justice v. United States/World Court”: STUDY THIS CASE:
Over 200 plus armed New York State Police attacked the unarmed men, women and children rotinoshonni [ierokwah, iroquois] without provocation. They had no badges, no name tags, carried a hit list. They were fully armed vigilantes in collusion with the so-called governing body of the corporation known as the ONONDAGA NATION to destroy and take control of our economies. We came together to discuss alternative measures.
Over the past 23 years, the New York State Police was protected from punishment by a system set up solely for that purpose. The following 8 systemic government partners ensured New York State Police would never suffer any penalty civilly or criminally for their crimes against the rotinshonni:
1.New York State Police
2.New York Attorney General
3. New York State Governor
4.United States District Court for the Northern District of New York [Syracuse]
5.United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit [New York City]
6.Supreme Court of the United States
7.United Nations, Permanent Forum on Indigenous Rights, United Nations Declaration of Rights for Indigenous Peoples [UNDRIP]
8.International Court of Justice at The Hague, The Netherlands [World Court]. KENNETH DEER of Kahnawake works for the Rockefeller corporation known as the UN. His role is to make sure none of the legitimate Iroquois issues get on the court docket in New York or Geneva.    
The website and videos show the New York State Police  could indiscriminately beat, injure, terrorize, and arrest 100 peaceful unarmed men, women, children, and elders who were gathered for a meeting and ceremonial feast on their own land. Government departments completely supported the police.
1.The vicious uncalled for attack.
2.The original peoples filed a Civil Rights action in United States District Court [Syracuse] which was ignored.
3.The New York State Police, the New York Attorney General, and the New  York Governor refused to acknowledge any blame.
4.The United States District Court supported this delay by allowing the Civil Rights Action to languish on its docket for 20 years.
5.After 17 years 76 original peoples settled for a few dollars and walked away.
6.15 refused to settle, known as the “Onondaga 15.
7.After 17 years of representing the Onondaga their 15 lawyers withdrew from the case, leaving them lawyerless.
8.This was followed by an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York City.
9.The United States District Court did not allow the Onondaga 15 to present their case to a Jury, and were no-caused.
10.The United States District Court protected its government family member, the New York State Police.
11.The next stage was at the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York City.
12.They rubber-stamped the systemic injustice to protect all governmental injustice.
13.The final stop at the Supreme Court of the United States proved that SCOTUS as a last resort in the United States justice system would ensure government will never be held accountable.  Nothing can slip through the cracks of their fake justice system to expose the United States systemic injustice to its Citizens and the World. [See Petition for Rehearing in Supreme Court, wherein Supreme Court Justice Sotomayer recused without giving the Onondaga 15 their right to waive the recusal pursuant to Congressional law. 10 years earlier she was a Judge on the Second Circuit, wrote an extremely favorable Opinion in favor of the Onondaga 15 against the New York State Police.
14.There is no redress for the Onondaga 15 in the United States justice system. It proves the Onondaga 15 cannot stand before the fake justice system and expect resourse.
15.The Onondaga 15 went to the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Rights to expose this United States systemic system of injustice. The website shows the private corporation known as the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Rights would not open the door for the Onondaga. It is a major part of the World-wide systemic injustice, racism, and police/military brutality. UNDRIP falsely broadcasts to the World that Indigenous Peoples Rights must be protected and supported throughout the World.
16.Next the Onondaga 15 tried to get the case into The International Court of Justice at The Hague, The Netherlands. This World Court too refused to expose systemic injustice in the World.
17.The only remedy is the kaianerekowa [the Great Law of Peace] and teiohateh [two-row wampum], the original and only law of onowarekeh, great turtle island and for the world. Webite has these documents.
The original natural peoples placed on turtle island by creation are not Americans or Canadians. The invaders murdered, imprisoned, enslaved the original people of the Western Hemisphere. Everyone who stays on turtle island must abide by the kaianerekowa and two-row wampum. Otherwise they are here illegally.
Beware of those that have created and benefitted from the system of injustice. They will be advocating for the status-quo to remain. The systemic injustice worldwide is exposed.
Governor Cuomo, the ball is in your court! Every corporation on turtle island, throughout the Western Hemisphere, is null and void. Every original placename [cities, towns, streets, parks, rivers, lakes, etc. etc.] must be immediately restored in the original languages. Every European system of injustice must be destroyed.
As Deep Purple hits the nail on the head about the current madness we are dealing with: “ Don’t look too long in my face, it could be a big mistake. I’m hanging on a thread so fine, I need a little space. I shouldn’t say but I know I must, I’ve had enough of pain and I’m pissed off standing in the rain. It makes me feel like a mad dog . . .”

Susnaghe Neneh‎ to First Nations Say ENOUGH! The settler empire always needs an expensive “venture” against Indigenous People. Paras, not police. The total RCMP planned gross spending for 2019-20 is $5.1 billion dollars. $3.1 billion dollars (60%) of that budget is used on “Contract and Indigenous Policing”. Indigenous people only make up 4% of the population.
