Mr. Chairman, thank you and Council. With us is Sidney
Has No Horses. Heís a medicine man from Oglala and Mr.
Chairman he has a message that he is (taking) to all
the tribes, all the tribes, all the reservations,
which came out of a ceremony Ė and I feel itís a good
message. I visited Mr. Has No Horses and so at this
time, Iíd like to get the floor for him.
Sidney Has No Horses:
Mitakuye Oyasin. All my relatives.
Iíd like to get in the middle if I could, I really
donít like to use the mic.
My name is Sidney Has No Horses. Iím from the Pine
Ridge Indian Reservation.
You probably know my father, his name was Dawson Has
No Horses. He was a Yuwipi man, a powerful medicine
man. My grandfatherís name is Frank Fools Crow. He was
also a powerful medicine man.
Six months ago, we had a ceremony. In this ceremony,
two angels came to me and they talked to me and they
told us of the devastation that would happen to the
islands and the Indian Ocean. They told us of the
earthquakes that would hit Japan. They told us of the
tsunami that wiped out all the people and they told us
of the hurricanes that came to Florida, the one that
came to New Orleans, and the one that went to Texas.
Thereís one more hurricane coming to wipe out another
Two weeks ago, we had a ceremony, Sitting Bull, he
came in and he talked to me. Crazy Horse, he talks to
me. Chief Big Foot talked to me. And they asked me to
go to the seven council fires and to the council
people and to warn all of these fires, within six
months thereís going be a tidal wave thatís going to
wipe out Los Angeles. Within six months, thereís going
to be an eruption in the northwest with the volcanoes.
They say from the eruptions of these volcanoes, the
ash that is coming, the Missouri River will be
destroyed. They say the water that we drink from the
ground is going to be no longer drinkable.
These hardships are coming because God is bringing
this. Whether you believe in Christianity, Native
American Church, or the Traditional way, if you read
the Bible, weíre going into the fourth seal. Thereís
diseases coming that are going to wipe out our
children and like this man said here, methamphetamine
on our rez is very bad too. If we donít stop that,
itís going to destroy the next generation. Many
vegetables are going to be born into our tribes.
When Iím done here, Iím going to Standing Rock and Iím
going to stand in front of them, their council and
tell them the same thing I am telling you now. This
winter is going to be very cold for a long time.
Ranchers are going to lose their horses and cows
because it ainít going to warm up. The price of is
going to skyrocket and sometimes theyíre not going to
be able to deliver the to our families.
This food issue in the Bible, it says one day there be
no food on the store shelves. If you look at the
hurricanes, in a lot of the stores thereís not food on
the shelves. These people lost their homes. They canít
drink that water . . . and so I come because of the
mighty chiefs that talked to me and because of who I
am. They tell me, I need to warn the tribes.
Today I came here without announcement, but to see you
all gathered like this. I know God is on my side to
see you gathered.
The Sisseton-Wahpeton tomorrow will be gathered at 10
oíclock and they will hear what I have to say.
The Flandreau people are going to be waiting for me
Iím going up to Ft. Yates here, Iím going to talk to
them even if itís after hours and so I thank you very
much for letting me come in and Iím thankful that I
got all of you together at the same time.
I offer you all a handshake. My name is Sidney Has No
Horses. I am from Batesland, South Dakota.
You might want to write this down. My phone number is
605-288-0097. We incorporated ourselves through the
state of South Dakota to let you know that we are
Within six months, we are going to be living in a hell
of a world and these chiefs have talked to me, me and
If you ever want a ceremony, you get ahold of us and
we will bring you a ceremony to let you believe.
But the chiefs tell me, some of you have good hearts.
Some of you have good minds. Some of you have
spirituality. You are the people that will take heed
on the word that I bring, and thereís a lot of people
that didnít believe us when everything we told them
has happened and my President, Cecelia Fire Thunder, I
talked to her yesterday and she supports because
everything I told her would happen to our tribe has
The power of God, he knows what heís bringing to us
and in three years, as the keepers of Mother Earth, if
the seven Fires do not come together, thereís going to
be a meteorite that will be coming and itís going to
hit off of San Francisco and they told us that Seven
Council Fires, these Seven Fires never had and
jealousy toward each other.
Iíve been trying to get the medicine men of Oglala to
come in unity, but they canít and now God asked me to
come and get all the Tribal Councils together and all
the tribes together. Thatís a very hard job that he
has given me. Iím very nervous as I stand here in
front of you, but I tried to look you all I the eye to
let you know that Iím for real and so at this time,
these are foods for thought, things you can think
about in the next six months and this is coming to us.
Itís very hard for me to say this, but I thank you for
the little time you have given me. I thank you. Now
Iím going to Standing Rock. I will be going to every
reservation. Maybe the tribal members will get
together and at least the tribal presidents will have
a ceremony for all you to hear and believe in God.
All my relatives. Mitakuye Oyasin. You have my phone
number and so if any questions, please contact me.
This meeting was held in Eagle Butte on October 4,
2005 at their regular October session and was signed
by Winona Charger Assistant Tribal Secretary.
