Crying Earth Rise Up - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE1kCjcrpqg
This short inter-tribal piece was created with longtime activist and Lakota elder, Debra White Plume, of www.bringbacktheway.com. The piece is used to inform tribal members and the general public about the poisoning of vast aquifers underlying several states by uranium mining. She and her husband, Alex White Plume, are working to inform the Indian and non-Indian populous about the dangers that are presently threatening their lands, lives, and families. Debra White Plume, empowering the Oglala Sioux to take a stand against further Uranium mining, narrates this project. The Lakota peoples water supplies and health have been severely affected by past mining. Over eighty wells have been capped in their already arid reservation. The incident of many diseases and birth defects linked to mining toxics has increased alarmingly in relation to past mining projects. These people wish to be heard. They want to put a moratorium on further uranium mining in their Sacred Lands, the Black Hills of South Dakota.
