Until we Win
|I have just talked with Dale Looks Twice at the Tribal Offices on Pine
Ridge. He asked that I clarify a couple items that were included in the letter from
Ishgooda. There is over 100 people in occupation at this time. With addition people coming
from Colorado and Arizona AIM. They are asking for unity of all supporters whether they
follow Russell Means or if they follow National AIM. They have only occupied the Tribal
offices. They are not planning to occupy the OLN Department of Public Safety. He stated
that the OLN is supporting them at this point. The OLN stands to loose 59 officers over
what has been happening. They are scheduled to meet with the FBI at 10:00 tomorrow morning
January 17, 2000. At that meeting they will tell the FBI all of the demands. 2 demands
that he mentioned to me are.
#1 The immediate removal of the Tribal Treasurer, Wesley "Chuck" Jacobs and
#2 A full audit of Tribal funds.
Dale has taken down my email address and has stated he will email more information to me as it becomes available since I can't be there to help. I will send all information as fast as I receive it to all the lists I am on.
Please feel free to forward this information to all concerned parties.
