What kind of a dick would kill the sacred buffalo? Guy should be scalped.

That's actually kind of a big deal to the Lakota Souix. Buffalo Calf Woman is basically their central founding . . . character? That isn't right. She's at the center of their mythology, anyway.

Whoever did this basically committed the equivalent of desecrating a church. I hope Crow-Dog and the other Lakota people find out who did this. For closure, if nothing else.

Incidentally, the Oregon organization Sacred World Peace Alliance are donating a white bull buffalo to the Lakota.

I think it's worse than desecrating a church. Churches can be rebuilt. Churches are all over the place. White buffaloes can't and aren't.

This. Although I don't think it's Crow Dog they'd be contacting, the spiritual leader of the Lakota is Arvol Looking Horse.

Someone trying to make a point. The point is that they don't give two shiats about sacred and feel that the world owes them the right to do whatever they want.

Considering the nature of the crime, this was designed as an intentional affront to the Lakota, and I hope when they find the MFer that did it they burn their eyes out with burning bison feces.

Well thats a hate crime. What kind of asshole kills a buffalo thats sacred to Native Americans? What in the fark is wrong with people?

And you see that someone left a comment about it, to the effect that the next one needs to be killed and grilled too. What a huge asshole.

How do you defend trophy hunters, out of curiosity? How do you defend sadists who just kill for pleasure? Are you one yourself?

I don't defend trophy hunters and poachers.
I agree with your viewpoint.
I was just commenting on SillyJesus' broad brush condemnation.

RobotSpeaksFlowers: WTF is "memorialize"?? And I though "burglarize" was asinine......


So if you don't know a word it doesn't exist?

Memorialize.

memorialize [muh-mawr-ee-uh-lahyz, -mohr-]

me·mo·ri·al·ize [muh-mawr-ee-uh-lahyz, -mohr-]

verb (used with object), me·mo·ri·al·ized, me·mo·ri·al·iz·ing.
1. to commemorate.
2. to present a memorial to.

Also (especially British) me·mo·ri·al·ise .

/It's a perfectly cromulent word.

FLMountainMan: I thought the consensus on Fark was that all religions are ridiculous and their followers idiots. Why should we care about this?


Because this is perhaps the one religion on Earth that has members who have been the most brutalized by every other religion, especially Christianity. They tend to be the least dickish about their religion. When was the last time you had a Lakota Sioux come to your door and ask you if they could tell you all about Buffalo Calf Woman? When was the last time you saw Native Americans protesting against gay marriage or sticking their nose in your business?

Also, it's not so much about religion as it is about respect for the people (who have had enough shiat shoveled their way over the past couple centuries) and the animal (which is a rare and domesticated creature that was unable to fight back or escape the coward who did this.)

FLMountainMan: I thought the consensus on Fark was that all religions are ridiculous and their followers idiots. Why should we care about this?


No, only the big three are ridiculous. Those special animal religions, ancient Asian secret religions, peaceful enlightenment religions and made up ones are totally sacred and real.

Honestly the only reason to care is that who ever did this committed a 10-15 thousand dollar act of vandalism.

elffster: Well thats a hate crime. What kind of asshole kills a buffalo thats sacred to Native Americans? What in the fark is wrong with people?


Well, it was either done for the lulz or some Native American pissed off one of the local, slack jawed, mouth breathing, brown person hating yokels and he decided to exact revenge in a pretty horrible and hate filled way.

A cool jacket that would likely get you beaten and/or killed if you ran into the wrong people.

Meh, it was just an act of vandalism, no different then keying somebodies car, spray painting a church, or busting a window.

Because this is not about religion. This is a hate crime through and through. The same reaction would be elicited if an all back church was burnt to the ground and the parking lot and pastors house were spray painted with the words "GTFO Ni**ers"

Well, at least to some degree, they aren't protesting against gay marriage simply because they were beaten into submission a few hundred years ago. At one point, there were definitely zealots among the different native peoples, but not any more(at least any that are loud enough to make a difference).
