Today we honor Kossack, Carter Camp


Wounded Knee takeover leaders were upset by the Nixon
White House's response to the siege and asked for
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to visit.
 Here an interviewer asks Carter Camp if that's really
 necessary. Camp asks, "Why not? Indians are just as
important as any other issue the U.S. has, like Vietnam."
I'm in Oklahoma today, on the reservation to participate in a special event honoring Ponca elder, Carter Camp. Carter has retired from blogging but when he did he was known as cacamp here at Daily Kos. For those of you who don't know, Carter was one of the original American Indian Movement (AIM) organizers. He was in charge of Military Operations at the Wounded Knee takeover in 1973. He also led the famous Trail of Broken Treaties caravan. Today we are celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Wounded Knee and honoring Carter Camp for his role in it. If you want to read more about him please read Meteor Blades's tribute. I'm told Dennis Banks will be there. I do hope so. I've always wanted to meet him.

I'm also bearing gifts for Carter from Aji & Wings, Meteor Blades and myself:

I've got my camera which also takes video. Carter's wife Linda was hoping someone would be able to record the terrific drumming groups coming. This will be my first War Dance. I should be able to post a short diary tomorrow with just a taste of photos but I'll plan to fully document the dancing and drumming on Tuesday.

This is a huge, lifetime event for me. I feel fortunate to attend. I invited MB to go with me since he is a Wounded Knee veteran also, he was there for 51 of the 73 days of occupation. He was unable to go. Shame since I'm certain Carter would love to see him again.

Cheers & Jeers-* New Day * Dinner

TIME: 5:30 PM
LOCATION: The Brit (Britannia Arms)
173 W. Santa Clara St. (walking distance from Conv. Center) • Downtown San Jose

Every year since 2007, Common Sense Mainer has organized a dinner for the readers of Cheers & Jeers who attend Netroots Nation. It has grown every year. Last year we had over 100 Kossacks attend. CSM always chooses a restaurant willing to handle a large crowd WITH SEPARATE CHECKS. (!?!) Yes, I know, hard to believe but it's worked the last several years. This year CSM has negotiated with The Brit for a special menu and separate checks are secured. If you'd like to join us please leave a comment in this diary and you'll be put on the RSVP list below. This year * New Day * and SFKossacks are co-hosting. All regional groups are invited to attend in addition to the loyal C&J following that Bill and Michael have.

ORGANIZER: Send navajo a kosmail to attend or leave a comment.

The plenary table list below will also be the RSVP list for this event. Dinner attendees will have an asterisk by their name.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
