A scarey thing happened today, haskellnews has heard from BIE interior insiders that Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn has told the IT dept to “locate the source” of haskellnews because she apparently does not agree that there are issues that need to be addressed.
I suggest Ms. Birdwell-Bighorn take a quick course in mass media communications.
Blogs are individual’s opinions. They are available in many venues and other individuals can post agreement or disagreement. You can post.
This country was founded on principals like freedom of speech.
Even with gag orders to your employees, those others of us can still voice opinions or more specifically we can ASK QUESTIONS and we will.
If you read these blogs you can see that not every one agrees with the facts we distribute.
A full-scale, independent investigation,perhaps from Justice or heck, even the White House, could quiet all the voices with facts.
Ms. Birdwell-Bighorn, the truth will set you free (to return to a job you are actually qualified to handle).
BIE, Birdwell-Bighorn, Skenandore, Tahleuemptewa, Stevens (and the rest of the old boys’ network) do not appear that eager to respond to Salazar and Echohawk.
Hopefully Tsosie will follow up; he seems up to the task if you believe his rally to the troops last week in Phoenix.
In the mean time we…. DO HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH THIS IS AMERICA , YOU CANNOT TAKE THAT AWAY FROM US MS. BIRDWELL- BIGHORN. I AM NOT SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO PUT A GAG ORDER ON YOUR EMPLOYEES EITHER, SOME OF US ARE LOOKING INTO THAT. DO YOU THINK BECAUSE YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF NATIVE AMERICANS THAT THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS ?..YOU ARE SADLY MISTAKEN. AND WHAT IS IT YOU ARE HIDING ANYWAY ? YOUR MARRIAGE TO SPIKE BIGHORN ? NOPE PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THAT. THE FACT THAT YOU ARE PREGNANT ? NOPE PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THAT. MUST BE SOMETHING WAY WORSE…LIKE THE FACT YOU SHOULD NOT BE IN CHARGE OF NATIVE AMERICAN SCHOOLS ? OR WORSE ??? NATIVE VOICES CAN AND WILL BE HEARD.
