Hau! Taŋyáŋ yahípi! Canté waštéya napé čhizuyapi.
My name is Nick Estes. I’m Kul Wicasa (Lower Brule), born and raised in Chamberlain, SX along my river, the Mni Sose (Missouri River). My nation is the Oceti Sakowin Oyate (the Great Sioux Nation or the Nation of the Seven Council Fires).
I’m currently a PhD student enrolled in the American Studies Department at the University of New Mexico. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in history from the University of South X. The purpose of this blog is to reflect on what it means to live, write, and remember our shared colonial and imperial history and present. Specifically, I try to write about border towns, treaty lands, and social and political issues facing contemporary Native Nations.
We were always here, and here we shall remain.
