GALLOPING SCARED. November 2006
“Before 1971, when Velma “Wild Horse Annie” Johnston won her crusade to save the country’s wild horses, they were being trapped in brutal airplane roundups, slaughtered, and sold as steaks overseas. Now Republican Montana senator Conrad Burns, through a bill signed by President Bush, has gutted the 35-year-old law protecting these cherished symbols of the America West.” Download PDF

“The Healing Touch”. David Little Wounded reaches out to calm a friend on the South Dakota’s Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, where wild mustangs have been reintroduced after an absence of 140 years.

WHERE THE HORSES RUN WILD. February, 2005

    The Lakota people of Pine Ridge South Dakota continue their struggle to protect their Sacred Horses from the Oglala Sioux Tribal Council and the Parks and Recreation Department.
    Since June 2009, the Oglala Sioux Tribal Council and the Parks and Recreation (OSTPR) have been removing horses owned by the Lakota People of Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota without permission, without notice and without any warrant issued or receipt. Despite repeated efforts, continued obstacles have made it impossible for the Lakota People to get their horses back.
