From: Mike Wicks 

The following statement is being issued on behalf of Floyd Hand,
a spiritual leader of Oglala Lakota at Pine Ridge, and one of the
organizers of the "Walk for Justice".  Permission to forward to
other lists or to media is hereby given.  Thank you.

                       OPEN INVITATION

We, the Oglala Lakota people, living on the Pine Ridge Indian
reservation, encourage Nebraska residents to join us for a
peaceful gathering.  The purpose of this Spiritual rally is to
bring national media attention to the staggering number of
UNSOLVED MURDERS that have taken place in and around Whiteclay,
Nebraska.

The desolate, unincorporated hamlet of Whiteclay hails a population
of just 22 residents, yet generates over $4,000,000.00 in annual
liquor sales!  Because of Whiteclay's isolated location and lack
of funding for adequate law enforcement, UNDERAGE DRINKERS from
South Dakota and from Nebraska find it easy to obtain alcohol there.

Our Nation's goal is to promote a healthy, alcohol and drug-free
community for our children, AND FOR YOURS!  As our neighbors, we
are asking that you unite with us to cease liqour sales and end
violence in Whiteclay.

                      "WALK FOR JUSTICE"

                      DATE:   JULY 3, 1999
                      TIME:   10:00 A.M.
                      PLACE:  Billy Mills Hall, Pine Ridge Village

The "WALK FOR JUSTICE" will begin with opening prayers followed by
a PEACEFUL walk to Whiteclay.

The organizers of this rally are insuring that there will be security
to maintain peace.  WE DO NOT CONDONE VIOLENCE OR CRIMINAL MISCONDUCT!
