Greetings my Friends, Relatives and Supporters
I want to send you all this personal message on what is now my 70th Birthday. I really want to thank you all for your years and years of support and love, I would have never made it this long without your love and support. As you can imagine, it has been a VERY long path. At times, more difficult than I could have ever imagined. I don’t regret any of it for one minute.
It has been my honor to stand up for my Native brothers and sisters and all good peoples of the world. I am very proud to have fought what we call “the good fight” for our future generations. For me, there is no other way. Unfortunately, we have not won the struggle for freedom and today we live in an even stronger police state.

Greetings my Relatives, Friends and Supporters
As I have said so many times in the past I am deeply and truly honored that you remember me on this day and I am honored to have my words read to you today. I think this commemoration day should be about the lives of all our people who in some way lived and died for us.
By the time of the Oglala shoot-out there had already been some 60 something of our Native people killed. These people are the ones we are commemorating here today. I always especially remember Joe Stunz, who was a mentor to some of the younger boys in the community. Read the rest of this entry
This drawing was inspired by reading historical accounts of Russian and Tlingit conflicts in Southeast Alaska in the late 1700’s and early 1800s. It intended primarily as a study of the incredible carved wooden war helmets and intricate body armor that Tlingit warriors of high status wore into battle. Read the rest of this entry
