In the book Cave Rock: Climbers, Courts, and A Washoe Indian Sacred Place, the authors Matthew S. Makley and Michael J. Makley describe the history of legal dispute between a small Nevada Native American tribe, called Washoe, and non-Native climbers, over the use of Cave Rock. For a countless generation of Washoes, Cave Rock was the center of a great spiritual significance. The site use was strictly restricted to the Shamans, the most powerful traditional Indian doctors. The doctors do not explain what they do in the rock, but the Washoes claim that what the Shamans do up in the rock has “something to do with power involving extremely secretive and sacred rites” (10). While the rest of Washoe tribes have avoided trespassing the site, the Native doctors used the Cave to connect with powerful forces (11).

Since Oregon began allowing physician-assisted suicide of the terminally ill in 1997, more than seven hundred people have ended their own lives with prescription medications in the state alone (NPR.org). Physician-assisted suicide is not only becoming a topic of controversy in the United States, but foreign countries as well. Supporters of the issue believe that competent people who do not have a chance of longevity should be able to choose their fate.

He then mentions Missouri, another state that also passed a law that requires an ID to purchase cold medicine that contains pseudoephedrine.

The American dream contends that all who persevere and strive for success will achieve it. This is not always the reality however. Many people live in a state of marked poverty throughout the United States. Not because they are lazy or indifferent but simply due to a wide variety of circumstances that are often beyond their ability to control. Such a situation exists on the Pine Ridge Reservation in southwestern South Dakota, the home of the Lakota Sioux [see map on pg. 7].
