Native Recipe

Fried Green Tomatoes

Makes about 6 Servings

2 lb Green tomatoes

4 Eggs 

1 1/4 c Corn meal 

3/4 c Water 

1/4 c Minced chives 

1 tb Salt 

1/4 ts Pepper, fresh 

1/4 c Butter

Slice the tomatoes 1/2" thick, but do not peel or core. Drain between several layers of paper toweling until most of the moisture of the tomatoes is absorbed. While the tomatoes are draining, make a batter by beating the eggs until light, then mixing in the corn meal, water, minced chives, salt and pepper. In a large, iron skillet, heat the butter or margarine until bubbly. Dip the tomato slices into batter, and brown quickly on both sides. 

  A Tipi Experience


A unique opportunity to experience the Native American way of life; closer to nature. Overnight in an authentic plains Tipi located on 50 private acres of forest and open fields with a panoramic view of the Jewel Basin Mountains. Horses and deer graze nearby.  

Colorful blankets cover the floor of the Tipi, pine boughs scent the air and Indian artifacts decorate. The queen size air mattress is camouflaged with simulated buffalo and lynx furs.

Located in Northwest Montana only 20 minutes from Jewel Basin, 30 minutes from Bob Marshall trailhead, 45 minutes from Glacier National Park, and 5 minutes from Flathead Lake and Bigfork, Montana..

Note:  This is a very affordable and unique experience.  To Visit The Rocky Woods Tipi click here:

The Curse Of Huron Indian Cemetery

"Cursed be the villain that molest their graves."  This is not a curse to be taken lightly. The battle to defend Huron Indian Cemetery from commercial development has been ongoing for the past 130 years. The Wyandot Nation of Kansas has always and will always defend the Huron Indian Cemetery from any threats and desecration. The Wyandot Nation of Kansas and the Wyandotte Nation - Oklahoma have signed a joint agreement dedicated to the PRESERVATION, RESTORATION and MAINTENANCE of the Huron Indian Cemetery in Kansas City Kansas.

The latest attempt at development was the Wyandotte Tribe of Oklahoma's announcement that they had the BIA's approval to put the land next to the cemetery into trust and then turn it into a casino. In addition to the latest proposal of a casino, commercial interests have used the Federally recognized status of the Wyandotte Tribe of Oklahoma to try to turn our sacred burial ground, protected by the Treaty of 1855 as a burying ground, into a parking lot and a department store site.

Note:  This is an incredibly interesting website containing legal issues, history and many articles.

Agreement reached in wrongful death lawsuit

ABERDEEN, S.D. - An out-of-court settlement has been reached in a civil lawsuit over the death of Robert Many Horses, 22, an American Indian found dead in a garbage can in Mobridge in June 1999.

Many Horsesí foster mother, Lila Martel of Mobridge, was named court-appointed representative of his estate and filed the suit against three people: Layne Gisi and Jody Larson of Mobridge and Joy Hahne of Trail City. Gisi and Larson were 19 years old when Many Horses died. Hahne was 17.

Martelís attorney, Charles Abourezk of Rapid City, said the family planned to ask for $1 million when the case went to trial in May.

Abourezk said all parties had agreed to keep terms of the settlement confidential. He said the settlement states that the three defendants must meet "face to face" with Martel.

"My client was pleased with the outcome of the case," Abourezk said. Martel "feels that the value of Robertís life was recognized by the terms of the settlement, which was the most important thing to her in the case," the attorney said.

In 1999, a circuit court judge dismissed criminal charges against Gisi, Larson and Hahne in connection with Many Horsesí death, citing insufficient evidence. An autopsy concluded Many Horses died of alcohol poisoning.

Many Horsesí death touched off accusations of racial inequity in the stateís justice system. The three defendants and one more person never faced criminal charges for the incident. Many Horseís body was discovered the morning after a night of drinking. He was found upside down in an alley garbage can in Mobridge. Many Horses was a physically challenged person who suffered from fetal alcohol syndrome.

The American Indian population in the state expressed emotions ranging from bewilderment to rage over the fact than none of the four involved were charged in the case.

The FBI and local investigators nor state DCI investigators found enough evidence to satisfy the judge to conduct a trial.

Stateís Attorney Dan Todd of Walworth County, where the crime was committed said that a few misdemeanors could be proven and then said the state had taken its best shot at prosecuting the case.

I'm so pleased with the overwhelming response to the Lady Hawke web page and free newsletters (over 1200 subscribers now).  I love the fact that so many souls can find information and hopefully  a bit of peace here.  Unfortunately the traffic has used up most of  the bandwidth (number of allowed page views per day)  allowed on this free server which means that the page will shut down about half way through the month until the following month.   In the near future I will  be buying web space to place the Lady Hawke Site upon.  If anyone is in a position to donate even a dollar to this cause I would appreciate it.  The donations will be used exclusively for the Lady Hawke Site web space.

Thank you so much,

Dee Redfeather Stewart
