THIS REQIURES YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION!
THESE PEOPLE ARE MOVING UP RIVER WITH NO
REGARD FOR ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES!
The following Racist Event is going on Right Now!
Stop This.
The Letter that I have sent to ALL of the address'
is below this news clipping. I Urge Everyone who reads this
to send out there feeling on this Racist Exhibition against
Native Peoples EveryWhere.

WE ONLY HAVE A SHORT TIME TO STOP THIS!
Fwd: Lakota press release-Lewis and Clark halt
Saturday, Sept. 18
Today, tribal members from the Lakota, Dakota, Ponca, Kiowa and
Dine' Nations came to the Missouri River at Chamberlain,
South Dakota to give the opportunity to the Lewis & Clark
Expedition to turn back and cancel their re-enactment journey that

began 200 years of genocide, land theft and resource exploitation from the

Plains tribes.

Under highly visible protection from local and federal police, the

Lewis & Clark re-enactors repeatedly stated "they cannot change history
and turn back time", as they stood in their period costumes along the
banks of the Missouri River.

Representatives of the >American Friends Services Committee, the

Mennonite Church and the United Nations Council on Genocide in anticipation of

the heavy

surveillance joined the tribal resistors by law enforcement.

The Lewis & Clark re-enactors offered a tomahawk pipe to the group
of resistors who refused to smoke it. Strong words were made by tribal
leaders Alex White Plume, Floyd Hand, Carter Camp, Alfred Bone Shirt,
Russell Means and Vic Camp who advised the Lewis & Clark re-enactors
that they were perpetuating the lies of American history.

The spokespersons for the Lewis & Clark Commemoration continually
cease their re-enactment
voyage up the river. A few months after the original "Voyage of
Discovery", Clark wrote of the Teton Sioux, "These are the vilest
miscreants of the savage race, and must ever remain the pirates of
the Missouri, until such measures are pursued, by our government, as
will make them feel a dependence on its will for their supply of
merchandise"
The re-enactment spokespersons alleged that they had no authority to
stop the expedition as the ultimate decision lies with a board of
directors. Initially, they requested three days to respond to the
tribal resistance group's demands. In a subsequent discussion, they
agreed to provide and answer to the group's warrior society on

Sunday,

September 19, 2004.

However, Clark, a direct lineal descendent of the original William
Clark stated that it would be unlikely to cancel the expedition
because of the resources invested to carry out the re-enactment and
the future events planned along the river route to commemorate the
original event.
The resistors contend that the original Lewis & Clark Expedition was
the dawn of genocide for the Plains Indian Tribes.
The tribal resistors have committed themselves to stopping the
re-enactor's expedition before they leave Lakota Country.
To Whom It May Concern,
How about we gather all the Neo-Nazi's in Germany and hold a

Re-Enactment at Auschwitz Concentration Camp?

NO! WHY NOT?
That's what your condoning with this Lewis & Clark Expedition
Re-Enactment. Celebrating the first 300 years that Invaders to this

Land Raped, Murdered, Plundered and Committed Genocide Against Indigenous

Peoples on the 4th of July Every Year isn't Enough for you folks.

Now you have to Celebrate the last 200 years that the Plains People endured the same thing.
An Honoring of two men who single handedly started the western

expansion and the Doom of Countless American Indian Civilizations. The
ones that were

left didn't fair much better. Forced to Live on Reservations, Told How

To Pray, What to eat, How Their Children should be taught and Who To Pray
To!

Ceremonies Handed down for thousands of years Made Illegal, Gatherings of more than 3 Native Peoples at a time Illegal.
Yet somehow we are all suppose to be Celebrating these men and their
"So-Called Accomplishment"

Somebody Please Give Me A Break!
This Action Must Be Stopped Now!

How Dare you and anyone else rub in the face of Native Peoples the

EXTRA 200 years of Rape, Murder, Genocide, Land Grabbing and Religious Persecution by

Allowing this "Celebration" to have even gotten this far.
I will implore Everyone I Do & Do Not Know to Rise Up and Protest This Disgrace.
I will Make Sure That EVERY POLITICIAN who Backed this endeavor will have their name known to all who voted for them and that EVERY COMPANY who

Financed this Travesty of Human Kind will be Advertised across the Globe
as the

Racist Insensitive Glory Hounds they Are!
HOW DO YOU DISCOVER A LAND THAT IS ALREADY LIVED
UPON? YOU DON'T YOU AROGANT FOOLS!
As You Are Reading This, this letter is being hurled across the Internet.

To Native & Non-Native Peoples Alike Who Know RACISM When They See It!
May Creator Forgive Your Ignorance, Cause I Can't!
