Declare war on Diabetes PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Monday, 28 July 2014 00:31

The campaign to reverse Diabetes in Indian Country will be launched by a motorcycle ride across Indian land starting Saturday, August 23, 2014 from San Francisco Crissy Field and due to arrive in Washington DC on September 26th.

The event begins at sunrise with a ceremonial blessing of song, drum, sage, at 6 am to 8:30 am. The public and motorcycle people interested to join the occasion for a successful send-off are welcome to attend.

The purpose is to bring attention to the high rate of Indigenous peoples in urban cities, and on reservations who are afflicted with this dreadful chronic disease due to poor health and nutrition. In the words of Mr. Banks "If we don't address this medical issue now there will be no 7th generation that will be healthy." Indian Health Services (IHS) have stated that diabetes in the native community is at 12-15%.

Unbeknownst to Paulet, diplomatic envoys from Hawaii, Timoteo Ha’alilio, William Richards and Sir George Simpson were already in London negotiating with the British and French governments for formal recognition of the Hawaiian Kingdom as a sovereign nation.
