Ruben Rosario: Heroin brings devastation to Indian communities Columnist Rubén Rosario discusses the impact of heroin among urban Indians in the Twin Cities and on reservations in Minnesota:   Joe Hobot has one word for it: devastating.    Clyde Bellecourt has another: epidemic.   They are both describing the impact heroin trafficking and abuse has had on the American Indian community in the Twin Cities and in reservations across the state.

The opium/heroin trade has had a devastating impact on communities since the trade began in the late 1700's.  Countless people have died from the scourge throughout history, and this plague upon humanity has never been fully documented.  The blight of alcohol consumption has had a devastating impact on Native Nations; although this too has left many communities reeling from its effect of alcoholism, broken homes, early death, crime and all the social ills associated with it.  We are all victims of drug addiction and alcoholism abuse, although, the "war" on drugs has not had any lasting impact on the use of hard drugs by an economically under-served community as the indigenous communities.  The Native nations, like all communities, needs hope that the next day will be brighter than the past; however one defines better than.  A people without hope; is a people without a future.

Just before the sun rises, there is a star standing alone, shining brightly in the east. Lakota refer to this beautiful sight as the Morning Star. http://bit.ly/13xZjQ6 #NativeCultures

TEMECULA: Ruling a setback for tribal sovereignty Cosentino appealed the Riverside court’s decision. This week’s ruling said the individual actions of particular commissioners do not shield them from liability if they use their official position to “intentionally harm” someone.“It’s much harder now for a tribe or tribal official to say that they are immune and win on it,” said Cosentino’s Los Angeles-based attorney, Andrew Twietmeyer. “This cas...
