Yvonne Swan on “Make No Bones About It.” 1/28/2018 at 4pm

Yvonne Swan (was Wanrow), Sinixt Arrow Lakes of the Colville Confederated Tribes is known for the “Wanrow Instruction”, a 1977 case law in Washington state stemming from a 1972 shooting death of a known Caucasian child molester. When her case reached the Washington State Supreme Court the ruling changed the law regarding women and self defense across the United States. Since then countless defendants have been helped when their defense was self-defense. The precedent also made it illegal to record a person without her/or his knowledge or consent and emergency police tapes are not to be used as evidence to convict.

Yvonne also worked for the International Indian Treaty Council, the diplomatic arm of the American Indian Movement (AIM) where they continue to bring violations of Indigenous human rights to the attention of the world through the United Nations. Yvonne continues to advocate for Native Rights and continues to organize grassroots movements. She was successful in helping her people get their ancient ancestral remains returned to them and reburied.

Yvonne displayed her art during our Indigenous Peoples Day 2017.

Yvonne is talking with Jimbo Simmons.

  •  Jimmy Hallum, a Dakota 38 rider shared this story  with us. 78 winters old walked from Lower Brule, SD to Ft Thompson, SD.today . It is right around 14 miles. To honor the Dakota 38 and the 2 who were later drugged, kidnapped and later hanged. The grandmothers who suffered at Crow Creek. He said his grandfather was part of the first minnesota calvary from 1858 to 1864 that escorted the dakota out of minnesota. He was also present at the execution at Mahkahtoe or blue earth. He said he wanted to walk because his grandfather rode horseback while the Dakota walked in front. So he wanted to walk behind while the Dakota rode back into Minnesota. It was cold today but he also said the Dakota really suffered at the hands of the white man back then. I want to say nina pidamiya to him for what he did today. We need more like him. Thank you Jacob Farmer for being a human being.
