Mendota community URGENTLY seeks assistance

Update from Linda Brown (05/23/99)

Dear friends, just a quick update: the park board land transfer hearing will be Tuesday morning at 9:30 am at the Minneapolis Hennepin County Courthouse, Judge LaJune Langs courtroom. Sorry I don't have the room #. If we could get as many supporters as possible there it would be helpful. Also we heard today that the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office will do a press release tomorrow on their findings for the Traditional Cultural Properties designation for the four trees. We hear it doesn't look good. We have to try and reach as many Federal Officials as possible on this issue, because it doesn't look we are going to get any help from the state agencies. We turned in our own report last Wednesday and it's obvious that {SHPO} didn't take much time to look at our report. And any all help that we can get is greatly appreciated. Remember we are having a spiritual walk this Wednesday evening. I will try to keep you updated as much as possible because time grows short. Pidamiya for all the prayers and your support. Someday the truth will be told, and we can all tell our children and grandchildren that we stood firm against this desecration of Sacred Land. We will keep fighting, nothing will ever change for the Native American people in this country unless we continue to take a stand on these issues. Write letters and make phone calls everyday, ordinary people can change the intolerance in this country if they care enough. Peace and Prayers to all of you. Love Linda
