‘Horse Nation’ Documentary Explores Lakota Culture, Horse Relatives
Christina Rose - 9/16/14

“People tend to think of us as buffalo people, but really, we are horse people, too. That got lost and is coming back, and we want to document that,” said Jim Cortez, the film’s editor of “We Are A Horse Nation.”
The trailer for “We Are A Horse Nation” has audiences calling for more. Still photographs from the film prove there is plenty to look forward to in this new documentary. Now in its final production stages, “Horse Nation” is expected to be completed by November for entrance into film festivals.

Suicide Chronicles, Part 1 of 5: A Conversation Native People Need to Have
Chelsey Luger and Gyasi Ross - 9/18/14

Silence kills. 
Suicide is a HUGE problem within our Native communities, yet it’s something that we barely speak about.  I put myself in this category as well—even though we’ve had several people within my family commit suicide, my family has never gotten together specifically to talk about either 1) why these suicides keep happening, or 2) how we can prevent further suicides from happening in the future.  While sexy political topics dominate headlines, this life and death issue that affects the heart of Indian Country—our homelands—hardly ever gets any press.  We haven’t yet collectively tackled this crucial question, “Why do we do this to ourselves?”

Lee Allen - 9/19/14

When the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Native American farmers and ranchers reached a discrimination lawsuit agreement in 2011, $760 million in litigated damages became available.  Four thousand Native Americans who claimed they were denied equal access to credit in the USDA Farm Loan Program applied for recompense. Now a national coalition of nonprofit organizations working with Native agricultural efforts has banded together in an effort to facilitate distribution of the remaining $380 million in funds.

UCLA Football:

Jerry Neuheisel makes UCLA families proud
By CHRIS FOSTERcontact the reporter

Jerry Neuheisel was in at quarterback, trying to beat Texas. Brett Hundley was on the bench, his left elbow in a mummy-like wrap.
The situation as seen through the eyes of two fathers is interesting.
Rick Neuheisel, a former UCLA quarterback and head coach, was in the Pac-12 Networks' studio in San Francisco, but took a break as analyst to plead with the television.
"Come on, Jer, come on Jer," Neuheisel begged in a video released by the network.
Brett Hundley Sr., watching at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, left his seat behind the UCLA bench to join a large section of Bruins fans, where he led them in "Jer-ry, Jer-ry, Jer-ry" chants.
"Of course, I was bummed about Brett's situation," Hundley Sr. said. "Then I realized, 'Wait a minute, we got to get Jerry fired up.'"
