Dan Wildcat Flagrantly Disobeys B.I.E.’s Stephanie Birdwell’s-Bighorn’s Directive.

On 09/17/2009 this directive was put out from Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn of The Bureau of Indian Education in Washington D.C. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT BIE STAFF ARE NOT TO RESPOND TO ANY PRESS OR MEDIA INQUIRIES MADE TO YOUR OFFICES. Stephanie E. Birdwell Bureau of Indian Education Deputy Director Policy, Evaluation & Post Secondary Education 1849 C St. NW MIB MS-3618 Washington, D.C. (202) 208-4397 (desk).

Today Dan Wildcat made this statement to the media: “There’s a big meeting that’s looking at budget issues right now,” said Dan Wildcat, Haskell’s acting vice president for academic affairs. Wildcat said that he, too, was unaware of calls for an investigation into the leadership of Haskell. “We’re just getting ready to wrap up this semester,” he said.

Apparently the directive was only for some B.I.E. employees but not all of them. We are as confused as Dan Wildcat is over which employees the gag order is meant for since Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn did not name them one by one and apparently Dan Wildcat need’s the type of leadership who specially spells things out for him. A congenial hand-holder is needed for Dan Wildcat.

For a minute we thought that Dan Wildcat had become the new Nedra Darling (he has so FLAGRANTLY disobeyed the directive) but a quick check assured us that Nedra is holding her own as spokesperson for the B.I.E. Sorry Dan.

So what is next? Dan Wildcat HAS disobeyed the directive.

It will be interesting to see what Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn does next. According to B.I.E’s own policy Dan Wildcat should be terminated.

A lot of us think he should have been terminated anyway for canceling those two BA programs and running all over the country pretending to be someone he is not .

And by the way Dan Wildcat if you have any information on where Native American Children are buried on or near Haskell Indian Nations University you should probably be coughing that information up to the proper authorities.

Someone needs to be investigating Dan Wildcat and Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn along with him….. Hello Larry Echohawk.

    Haskellnews, with all due respect, do you really think that Larry Echohawk reads this blog? With all of the calls for this and that, have you actually contacted Mr. EH personally? His number is available so give him a jingle or write him and mark it “URGENT” or “READ ME” or something.

    Not that I don’t appreciate everything that you are doing and I understand that native politics are exasperating. But you are writing some very powerful stuff and I am only concerned that your efforts may be lost in ljworld so I hope that you are taking the direct route to these people and this blog is merely the local edition of your efforts.

    You might want to Google “Stephanie Birdwell”… If you do you would find that Haskellnews somehow has their blogs posted on other sites all over the country. And I believe in an earlier post they stated that each time they send out a blog they are sending a copy to Representatives, Senators, tribal leaders, educators, and BIA/BIE officials across the country. I think even Pat Roberts office mentioned in a quote in the ljworld that, although not by name, they were following this issue.
