Mendota community URGENTLY seeks assistance
January 29, 1999
An update on the Mendota Dakota Community
Waholi Bear and Medicine Eagle will be leaving Sunday morning to return
home. They brought food, sleeping bags a cook stove and clothes. They
are in need of bigger ticket items like tipis, tribal flags, generator,
fire wood, prepaid phone cards, and money to rent a porta-potty to keep
on site. Right now everyone has to use the holiday station 3blocks
away, and they don't want to give them an excuse to bring in the troops
again for sanitary reasons. Of course the Mendota community still needs
cash donations for travel expense, gas for the motor home and bus so
people can get out of the cold, paper work expense, mailings video
tapes,etc. Alsom, Rep. Karen Clark's e-mail was slammed last
week and she says she has not recieved email from the many people that
have emailed her office. Also Rep. Clark will be presenting her
resolution to the MN house of reps. on Monday or Tuesday, and the
Mendota would appreciate prayers for this resolution.
Elders came this morning and they had a wonderful pipe ceremony at the
four trees. And so far, everyone is doing well.
Financial assistance is still needed also.
The Mendota are a non-profit organization and reciepts will be supplied for those
who request them.

Checks or money orders may be made payable to MMDC.
