Two petitions are being circulated. One is a “Repeal the Repeal” of the law protecting the Fighting Sioux name and likeness, and an initiated measure to place the Fighting Sioux name in the Constitution. The people of North Dakota want to be heard on this issue, to include those Dakota Sioux at Standing Rock who have been denied a vote by their Tribal Council. Organizers intend to give all people in North Dakota that opportunity, both by signing the official petitions to get these issues on the ballot, and ultimately allowing them to cast their vote at the ballot box.
Keep an eye out for future events around the state. Information will be posted right here on SAB. Feel free to contact Charles at 701-630-9489 if you want to organize one of your own as well .
You also don’t need a big event to get signatures. Many are being successful carrying them around to get signatures from friends and neighbors, or getting their family to sign. Petitions don’t need to be filled up to submit them. All you need to get your own petition drive event (big or small) going is some petitions. Get them here, and make sure you thoroughly ready the instructions before getting signatures.
Special Note to Circulators: Please send in what you have collected (one signature or 10,000) to Reed (once you have notarized them) on Monday, Jan 30 so he gets them around Jan 31st. We want to get a hard count of where we are at to date.AG EXPO, Bismarck Bobcats, Bobcats, Dakota Wizards, fighting sioux, Fighting Sioux Nickname, hairball live, higher education, initiated measure, iowa, mandan, North Dakota News, north dakota state fair, Petition, ralph engelstad arena, REA, repeal the repeal, Sioux, Spirit Lake Sioux, state board of higher education, State Fair, UND, University of North Dakota, Wizards
