COFFEE, CREAMER, FLOUR, VEGTABLE SHORTENING, YEAST, SUGAR, CANNED SOUP
NON-FOOD ITEMS (KEEP OUR TOKALAS HAPPY!):

As with all my emails concerning the Occupation Peoples please forward to any and all
interested parties in its entirety
I contacted the Red Cloud Building in concerns to the account in White Clay. I was assured that the White Clay Grocery is not an alcohol-selling establishment. I was also assured that during the Marches on White Clay by members of Camp Justice the Tokala society would stand guard around this establishment. The manager of the White Clay Grocery is a supporter of both Camp Justice and the Grass Roots Oyate. I was informed that the White Clay Grocery is not one of the stores being boycotted.
