Intertribal Jokes...Funny
Lila Iyomakpi yelo. Ata Ihakela wayelo!
Indian Humor has always been around. Even at Powwows. Intertribal humor is significantly harmless, though it may sound extremely offensive. Intertribal humor has been a way of communicating between the Sicangu (Rosebud Brule Sioux) and the Oglala (Pine Ridge Sioux) for years. Oglalas visiting Rosebud Relatives hear these alot. Here is contemporary Lakota humor at its worst/finest? Which ever way you want to look at it...
Sicangu Jokes (toward Oglala's)
Speeding in Pine Ridge

A Sicangu gets pulled over in Pine Ridge for speeding 88 MPH in a 45 zone. The cop asks for his drivers license and the Sicangu says, "I'm sorry officer, but my license was suspended after my 5th DUI."
The cop asks for his registration and the Sicangu` says, "It's in the glove compartment, but it's not in my name because I stole this car in a car jacking and I killed the woman that owns the car and stuffed her in the trunk and the gun I used is in the glove compartment. At this point the cop tells the guy to keep his hands in sight and he radios for back-up.
When a supervisor shows up, the cop tells him the story and he walks up to the Sicangu in the car. The supervisor asks to see the Sicangu's drivers license and he hands it over and it is valid with the Sicangu's real name and information.
The supervisor asks for the registration and the Sicangu says, "It's in the Glove compartment." The supervisor tells him to keep his hands in sight and walks around to the passenger side and opens the glove compartment. There is the registration in the Sicangu's name and everything seems in order.
Next the supervisor asks him to get out and open the trunk. The Sicangu opens the trunk and the only thing there is a spare tire.
At this point the supervisor tells the him what the other cop had told him. The Sicangu says "I'll bet that lying S.O.B. told you I was speeding too!"

A terribly overweight Oglala went to IHS to be put on a diet.

The Doc said, "I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5 pounds."
When the Oglala returned two weeks later, he shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds.
"Why, that's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did you follow my instructions?"
The Oglala said, " yeah, but I tell you, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day."
"From hunger, you mean?" asked the doctor.
"No, from tha' skipping."

Three Oglala's in a Bar...

Three Oglala's were in a bar and spotted a Sicangu.
They decided to have fun with the Sicangu guy. One of the Oglalas walked over to the Sicangu, patted him on the shoulder, and said, "Hey, I hear your Spotted Tail was gay."
"Oh really?...Hmm...didn't know that," said the Sicangu.
Puzzled, the Oglala walked back to his buddies. "I told him Spotted Tail was gay, and he didn't even care."
The Second Oglala said, "You just don't know how to piss him and learn!" So the 2nd Oglala walked up to the Sicangu, slapped him on the shoulder and said, "Hey, I hear your Spotted Tail was a transvestite!!"
"Oh really?... hmmph, didn't know that," said the Sicangu, nonchalantly.
Shocked beyond belief, the 2nd Oglala went back to his buddies.
"You're right. He must be really drunk!" said the Oglala.
The 3rd Oglala walked over to the Sicangu, hit him on the shoulder and said, "I hear Spotted Tail was an Oglala!!"
Without turning around, the Sicangu replied, "Yeah, that's what your buddies were trying to tell me."

Bar Room Psychology....

A very shy Sicangu guy goes into a bar and sees a Beautiful Oglala woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering up his courage he finally goes over to her and asks, "Um, would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?"
She responds by yelling, at the top of her lungs, "No, I won't sleep with you tonight!"
Everyone in the bar is now staring at them. Naturally the Sicangu is hopelessly and completely embarrassed and he slinks back to his table. After a few minutes, the Oglala walks over to him and apologizes.
She smiles at him and says, "I'm sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I'm a graduate student in Psychology and I'm studying how people respond to embarrassing situations."
To which the Sicangu responds, at the top of his lungs, "What do you mean $200!?!"
Once Upon a Time in Rosebud...

Once Upon a time, in Rosebud, a beautiful independent, self-assured Sicangu woman, happened upon a frog as she was contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her tipi. The frog happened into the Sicangu's lap and said: "I was once a handsome Oglala, until an Iktomi cast a spell upon me. One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the wonderful, young Oglala that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in your tipi with my Mother, where you can prepare meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, and forever feel grateful and happy to do so."
That Night, dining on frog and onion soup and fry bread, she chuckled to herself and thought: "I don't think so!!"
