Otter Creek Mine
The following message is being sent to ask if you will voice your concerns on the Otter Creek Mine. This surface strip coal mine is within the area covered by Defenders of the Black Hills. We have visited the area and it is nestled in a beautiful valley and historic place that will be completely destroyed.
Please voice your concern for no more coal mining and the protection of the environment of the Otter Creek area.

I am sending this on to you even though it is not in our Treaty Territory. It is sent by our good friend and ally, Gunder Wippel.
The information is so sad. When will the insanity stop?
Please pass it on if you wish.

July, 2012 Newsletter - 3rd Quarter
The third Quarterly meeting was held on Saturday, July, 7, 2012. The meeting had originally been planned for June 23, but scheduling conflicts occurred and the meeting had to be postponed.
In the Opening Remarks, Charmaine White Face, the Coordinator, explained that there are so many issues, and have been fr om the beginning, that she sees her job as letting others know about projects, and the time and place for comments or meetings. She thanked those that attended the South Rochford Road Meeting in Hill City which she couldn’t make, and also those that sent comments letters in to the National Guard. This kind of participation by many people is what helps to have an effect on the issue. If many people attended the meetings, what kind of cumulative effect would we have?
