The CIA, the Black Snake, and the Last Man Standing

Back in the 1970s an unlikely coupling began when the Lakota native community and Dakota ranchers joined forces under the CIA (Cowboy Indian Alliance) to halt uranium mining. The CIA has now been loosely reestablished by a new generation of farmers and ranchers, finding support with folks who are no strangers to the loss of land.

I met Lindsey in high school in San Francisco. We had gone to some party and he was sitting in the middle of this gorgeous living room playing a song. I walked over and stood next to him, and the song was “California Dreaming,” and I just started singing with him. And so I just threw in my Michelle Phillips harmony, and he was so beautiful. And then I didn’t really see him again until two years later, when he called me and asked me if I wanted to be in his rock ‘n’ roll band, which I didn’t even know existed. And within two or three months we were opening for Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, all the San Francisco bands. Two years later, we packed up and moved to Los Angeles with about 12 demos.

“Take up more space as a woman. Take up more time. Take your time. You are taught to hide, censor, move about without messing up decorum for a man’s comfort. Whether it’s said or not, you’re taught balance. Forget that. Displease. Disappoint. Destroy. Be loud, be righteous, be messy. Do not see yourself like glass. Like you could get dirty and clean. You are flesh. You are not constant. You change. Society teaches women to maintain balance and that robs us of our volatility. Our mercurial hearts. Calm and chaos. Love only when needed; preserve otherwise.”
