Violence Awareness

Category: 

Domestic Violence Protection Initiative (DVPI) gave a prestigious Wopila Tanka! (Big Thanks!) recently to St. Francis Indian School's 11th and 12th graders for their outstanding month-long effort at helping heighten tribal-member awareness of domestic violence and bullying on the sprawling Rosebud Indian Reservation.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HAPPENS

Category: 

Shortly after the above group of walkers against domestic violence passed the photographer's location on Oct. 2, 2013, near the fairgrounds in Rosebud, on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation, a domestic violence situation arose, of which the protestors, escorted by tribal police cars, had no knowledge. Four men, slightly intoxicated, drove up to the house intent on getting gas and money. Knowing that an elderly man on oxygen lived at the residence, the men brazenly tried to get a response from inside the house by peering in the front windows.

WILDFIRES CONTINUE

July 24, 2012 — Sun Times Photojournalist Teddie Rae Herman-Rogers positioned herself above a deep ravine to document some of the large animals most susceptible to getting caught in the fire, as they tried their best to find a suitable way around the blaze as it gets ready to flare above the hilltop. Fortunately, the pair of bull elk were able to find a short corridor through which they could escape. Other animals, for which there are no immediate statistics, may not have been so lucky. Long Horn Complex is considered the most uncontrolled at the moment.

WILDFIRES RAGE

Category: 

July 24, 2012 — Lightning strikes over two nights beginning July 18, igniting about 14 separate fires, spread through largely remote sections of Crazy Horse Canyon on the Rosebud Reservation over the past six days, eventually forcing evacuation of Spring Creek, Upper Cut Meat and Grass Mountain communities. By Monday, authorities estimated 25,000 acres of forest and grassland had been destroyed in the areas of Beads Dam, Iron Shell, Longhorn, and beyond.

Mounting Protests

Fighting Crime

A team like the one above undergoes extensive training in New Mexico and elsewhere before work on the streets actually begins. Trained animals will go the extra mile to serve in their capacity as police dogs, and officers have to be extremely protective of their partners, making sure they're well-hydrated and secure; they are never left in an unventilated vehicle longer than a minute on warm days.

"[T]hank you for your wisdom, love, guidance and teaching you have shared for generations, not only with your family, but with your tribe," the proclamation read. (SST/Photo)

Chief Patrol

Category: 

Rosebud Police Chief Grace Her Many Horses demonstrated her prowess aboard her powerful all-terrain vehicle as she toured several locations around the fairgrounds during this year's hit-wacipi, fair and rodeo, according to witnesses. Above, the chief resists the urge to throttle-up during the popular Saturday parade, where floats kept children diving for candy along the parade route. Now in her second year as police chief, Her Many Horses is the first woman to occupy that post, thanks in large-part to strong political backing from the Bordeaux administration.
