In 1996, a friend of 5 years, Louise Big Boy
, offered me a land upon which I could live and which she
did not tell me was that she
didn't own the land, but yet was fraudulently leasing to area ranchers, who in turn, were illegally subleasing.
pparently concerned that I would discover the fraud, in 2002, Louise
asked me to move, without explanation and no discussions, after I had invested thousands of dollars in building a 2 story house.
I contacted the BIA
who told me that Louise
did not own the land on which my house was located, but that it was owned by
Louise and ranchers Whirlwind Horse and Vocu wrote a letter to the BIA Realty Officer, demanding that I be removed from the land by the BIA.
Knowing that Louise Big Boy
did not own any land on 3 Mile Creek, BIA Supt Larry Bodin, nevertheless sent an official BIA eviction letter, dated October 20, 2003, in which he
stated I was illegally trespassing on member Louise
Big Boy's land, that I had 30 days to vacate, even though he
knew Louise did not own the land.
On May 5, 2004, Bodin wrote a letter to Gerald Big Crow, (Ex E)who was working for Oglala Sioux Tribe, in which Bodin acknowledged that Father Peter Klink, representing Red Cloud Indian School,had sold the 2 acres of Church land (and Plaintiff's house) to Oglala Sioux Tribe for $1.00, on a Quit Claim Deed, dated April 28, 2004, six months after the BIA eviction letter was sent to me.Big Crow, with the help of Bodin and the Oglala Sioux Tribe, then assigned ownership of the 2 acres to Louise Big Boy, sometime in May of 2004, seven months after BIA Supt.
On May 28, 2004, the tribal police, Louise Big Boy
and Robert Montileaux, and about 20 other people, came into my yard, without warrant or court order, and attempted to remove me by force.
Louise Big Boy
and about 20 or more of her
friends were stealing my things.
Capt. Miltain Bianis told me the tribal police pried the locks off my doors, and allowed Louise Big Boy
and Robert Montileaux into my house.
was charged with threatening Louise Big Boy
, whom I had not seen or had contact with in over a year.
First, I was wrongfully evicted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs ("BIA") from property I was permitted to lease because the alleged owner, Louise Big Boy, purportedly owned the land.Fact is, however, that Louise Big Boy did not own the land.Thus, to justify the wrongful eviction, the BIA, the catholic church, and the
conspired to transfer the property to Louise Big Boy
after I was forcefully removed from the property and forced to lose forever personal items and a log cabin I build without any compensation.
