Ward Churchill will be before the Supreme Court of Colorado on June 7th. In a very encouraging move, the Supreme Court has agreed to consider all of the plantif's questions without qualification, which is very rare. The Westword article has a good interview with the atorney David Lane about their chances, and you can also see the recent article from the Daily Camera. For a very in-depth look at the case, visit wardchurchill.net. See you in court!

Russell Means, a prominent Oglala Lakota activist, actor and cancer survivor, is one of several elders scheduled to attend a buffalo harvest March 16 to 18 at Fort Lewis College (FLC), in southwestern Colorado.
“I am very honored to be present at the upcoming buffalo ceremony,” Means told ICTMN. “I look forward to speaking to the students.”
Means is currently undergoing a periodic medical checkup at a Scottsdale, Arizona clinic where he received targeted radiation therapy for throat cancer. He says a combination of that therapy and traditional healing methods have left him “essentially cancer-free.”
Please forward widely.
Support New Mexico Indigenous Leaders in Protesting the Expansion of Uranium Mining and the Nuclear Cycle of Destruction!
Demand a Clean Up of This Toxic Legacy and Respect for Sacred Lands
Wednesday, May 26, Noon
Grand Hyatt Hotel
1750 Welton Street, Denver, Colorado
On May 25-27 a delegation of Navajo community leaders will come to Denver to protest US Government support for expanding the nuclear industry that has already had a devastating impact on Native American and Chicano communities in New Mexico.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the National Mining Association will host a “Uranium Recovery” conference designed to make it easier for mining companies to move forward with a new era of uranium mining.
When the uranium boom ended over thirty years ago, mining companies skipped town and left New Mexico with a devastating legacy of sick communities—including high rates of cancers, respiratory diseases, reproductive disorders and miscarriages. They also left contaminated water, soil, and air. There are still hundreds of abandoned uranium mines in New Mexico, largely located on Navajo land and Pueblo lands, and state and federal agencies are only now beginning to inventory those mines and begin the cleanup process.

Rock Out Columbus Day The LAST a.k.a. Indigenous Peoples Fest!
This year brings the 100th year anniversary of the celebration of Columbus Day in Colorado-the first and oldest C-day in the nation.
After 19 years of efforts in Denver to transform the holiday that celebrates the murderer and slave trader Columbus to one that brings honor and respect to all peoples, waiting for them to change it matters no more.
