Please Help!!! ...Whose Bones are these???

Please if anyone can help...

I was led to find these bones by a Hawk that appeared about 5 feet away from me, sitting on a branch about 5 feet off the ground - well, it made my hair stand on end, and these bones are very interesting - I have had guesses of Giant Amadillo pelvics - see my photo's on Flicr for a closer look

Seems to be a left and right - one side has a dimpled texture - top edge you see in picture, seems to have had connective tissue??

They are about 7" long by 5" wide


Click on photo for closer look

Thanks in advance

Much Love and Many Prayers,

Greeting Y'all

Had a wonderful time in Cherokee, picked up some goodies to pass on, like the above pictured river stone tomahawk key ring. Some are painted and some say Cherokee NC on them. The eBay shop is now re-opened and I will be listing some dream catchers and earrings made by local artist Elsie Johnson Nix.

Hope everyone is well

Much Love and Many Prayers

Tribal police break up Indian reservation's beer blockade

Hey Y'all I got a call from an Uncle out in Oklahoma. Duane is a good friend of my uncle. They arrested Duane, Russel Means, and a few others. I also heard they beat the brothers up. ***YA U BELIEVE IT*** I THOUGHT THEM DAYS WERE OVER!!!!!

Please pray Brothers and Sisters

Much Love and Many Prayers,


PINE RIDGE, South Dakota (AP) -- Tribal police Thursday shut down a volunteer blockade aimed at keeping beer out of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where alcoholism is rampant, and arrested three organizers who refused to leave.

Only a few vehicles had been checked for alcohol by the time Oglala Sioux tribal police told the volunteers to stop because of safety concerns. After several minutes of arguing, police arrested actor and American Indian activist Russell Means; Duane Martin Sr.; and Frank LaMere, a Winnebago activist.

Martin was arrested after it appeared he fought with officers over a spear he was carrying. He spoke in Lakota as more than a half-dozen officers wrestled him to the ground.

The three were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice, said tribal police Chief James Twiss.

"You can ask only so long before you have to arrest them and get them into custody," Twiss said.

"It looked like the violence was initiated by tribal police," said Mark Vasina of Nebraskans for Peace. His group and Martin's Strong Heart Civil Rights Movement staged the blockade.

About two dozen people were at Thursday's blockade, but only four or five actually were stopping vehicles. About half the people there were reporters.

As many as 20 tribal officers were called in to break up the blockade, while about a dozen Nebraska law officers stood by in Whiteclay, a village just outside the 16,500-member reservation.

Alcoholism is rampant on the reservation, which bans alcohol, and the volunteers had hoped the blockade would help curtail bootlegging. Four stores in Whiteclay sell about 4 million cans of beer a year, mostly to American Indians.

Blockade workers, wearing bright green construction vests, had planned to stop vehicles, ask occupants whether they had any alcohol and confiscate it if they did. They attempted a similar blockade last year, but it was abandoned when police raised safety concerns, and both sides agreed to work together to address the problem.

Beer cans litter reservation roads and the streets of Whiteclay. People loiter outside the stores. Some try to trade tools, electronics and other things for beer.

"I'm tired of my people dying. You've got 18-, 19-year-olds trading alcohol for sex," said Martin, whose fellow organizer, Means, was a leader of the American Indian Movement and led the 1973 uprising at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Means ran unsuccessfully for the Libertarian nomination for president in 1988.

Martin had indicated organizers didn't need support from the tribal government, citing support of the Oglala Sioux's traditional leader, Chief Oliver Red Cloud. But organizers had wanted law enforcers to take over the blockade to ensure it remained nonviolent.

Twiss said that he empathizes with the group's mission but that he has to follow tribal law. He added that tribal police conduct at least 15 sobriety checkpoints on the reservation each year and plan to do one starting Friday and running through Wednesday -- including the road between Whiteclay and the reservation.

Earlier, acting tribal police Capt. Wilmer Youngman said the searches the volunteers planned went beyond the authority of police. "We can't even search vehicles" without having probable cause to believe a crime has been committed, he said.

Twiss said he told the organizers a year ago they needed to change tribal law and make the blockade legal -- but they didn't. "They had a whole year to do something legislatively," Twiss said.
