'White Clay Blood Is on Your Hands': Skyhawk Lashes Legislature
On October 11 in Lincoln, Nebraska, Sonny Skyhawk stood before a committee of the Nebraska Legislature with a clear message: “Whiteclay is the equivalent of the killing fields of our people,” said the Rosebud Reservation native.
“Our people are dying on a daily basis, and our children are suffering from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. It’s been going on far too long, and this legislature just continues to stick its head in the sand.”
Skyhawk and fellow Native activist, Frank LaMere, told the committee they believe there are solutions that remain untried.
