    In commenting on this diary.
    I have a few words.
    The money for heat and necessities should be attainable.
    There must be some deep pocketed philanthropists who could solve that - if we knew who they were.
    I hope everyone reading and caring about these issues knows about the series of historical diaries which ojibwa has been posting on DKos and Street Prophets. They are remarkable and especially iluminating for those (like me) who lack such education.
    It seemed, last Winter that the state governor was at best remiss and reluctant to allocate resources to reservation needs. If a powerful ear in the federal government could be spoken to, some way around the local indifference might be found.
    Perhaps it will take a team of varied discipline to assess and address the problems.
    Transportation is also an obstacle, worse in bad weather.
    My impression is that there are many people isolated, scattered about and barely subsisting and at risk because access to the elements of survival is so limited and constantly people are forced to choose whether to have heat or food or medicine, and never being able to have them all.
    I have been learning and thinking about these troubles and their origins this whole year.
    It would be good to know what initiatives and proposals are currently forming and have the list of needs.
    One more thought: I fervently hope that the diarist's psyche is safe from despondance and the ache of stress misery which this prolonged emergency engenders.
    (If I find any source of rescue and solution, I will report it.)  

    support the conscience of information. ruining life and water for shale gas, sea oil and quick mountain coal is sick. Bring on the National Justice Festival!
