This Friday on Native Bidaské, Valerie Vande Panne, managing editor, welcomed Kevin Killer, the President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. 

Killer has dedicated his life to political activism. He even served ten years in the South Dakota state legislature, where he represented the district that includes the Pine Ridge reservation. 

Killer joined Native News Online to shed light on the recent events surrounding the Oglala Sioux tribe, where they ousted a Christian Mission from Pine Ridge Reservation after they were found distributing hate materials.

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
