The tribe should be allowed to grow the hemp. The government’s actions are the ones that are criminal.

Not just in Pine Ridge

Once again the European mindset is trying to keep people of color from cashing in on a viable commodity which could bring native peoples a form of economic independence. Pine Ridge is one of the poorest communities in the country, and they rely on the sale of goods to stay above water. Similar things are happening in Canada as well. What is happening to White Plume is happening all over the world: massive attacks on culture, traditions, and values.
