I only hope this appeal to native folks (and others) raises more people to action than past efforts have. No one has a closer kinship to our land than native people but we must be able to state our case without even a hint of violence.

PLEASE, EVERYONE RESPOND. TELL YOUR KIN AND YOUR FRIENDS, EVEN STRANGERS WHO MIGHT LISTEN, THAT THE
TIME HAS COME TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!
