HIGHLIGHTING THE INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY

Betty Peltier, sister of NA poltical prisoner, Leonard Peltier & Tara, 2010.

Hello!

 

Thank you for being here! Welcome to my Blog - A Lakota Woman's Voice (LWV)-In Honor of the Voices Never Heard! I am very excited to bring this to life! I hope that people will enjoy, gain something or be inspired by the things that will be shared on LVW.

 

My name is Tara Pretends Eagle Weber, I am Hunkpapa Lakota and a citizen of the Standing Rock Tribe in North Dakota. I am a mother, daughter, sister, auntie & great-auntie :) I am also a Native American Adoptee, an AIM baby, one who was born during the American Indian Movement uprising and whose birth parent was a member.

 

I am a social worker, journalist/writer, photographer activist & social justice publicist. I have a passion to tell stories, stand for those who cannot & help those in their fight who need it! It is in my blood to tell stories, stand for strong for myself, my son, my family & for others. In these experiences I took pictures, had articles published and showed the world through social media-the beauties of Native America-and the horrific injustices...

 

I started this blog because things are happening so quickly in the world today and it is more important than ever to use our voices! HAPPY READING!

MR. B & ME! 

 

Mr. Harry Belafonte changed the world in so many ways. He is such an inspiration to me! He helped the American Indian Movement like no other could. He stuck up for my people!...He used music to bring attention to famine & civil wrongs, like no other!

 

I attend a fundraiser for poltical prisoner, Leonard Peltier in NYC! I was able to make my way backstage! I went to look around and there was Mr. B sitting by himself. So I grabbed the nearest chair and sat next to him. I was shaking. I introduced myself and thanked him for everything has done for humanity!  

Seeing his face brighten up & smile when I said, I was Lakota was the BEST! Lol Getting to thank him was just amazing! Getting to talk to him was one of the best times of my life! It was a truly special opportunity!
