Donna --
Greetings my Friends, Relatives and Supporters

I want to send you all this personal message on what is now my 70th Birthday. I really want to thank you all for your years and years of support and love, I would have never made it this long without your love and support.  As you can imagine, it has been a VERY long path. At times, more difficult than I could have ever imagined.  I don't regret any of it for one minute.

It has been my honor to stand up for my Native brothers and sisters and all good peoples of the world.  I am very proud to have fought what we call “the good fight” for our future generations. For me, there is no other way.  Unfortunately, we have not won the struggle for freedom and today we live in an even stronger police state.

I would like to share with you what our recent fundraiser was all about so that you hear it from me personally.   READ MORE
