Asking for Your Support

On March 6, Toby McCleod, (producer of "In Light of Reverence" a Sundance Film Festival winner, which showed the Winnemem Wintu's successful battle to stop the building of a ski resort on the sacred Mt. Shasta and prevented the desecration of their Sacred Spring by condo developers) was the first to sign the Support Justice for the Winnemem Wintu Tribe on line petition. Three weeks later, there are 411 signatures many with comments from all around the nation, and also internationally demonstrating to Senators Boxer and Feinstien that the Winnemem do not stand alone. If you haven't signed yet, please take some time today:

If you have already signed, thank you! If you go to the site and you haven't visited in awhile, it's very heartening to see how far and wide supporters are and to read some of their heartfelt comments. Please pass this information on to your friends, family and organizations.

At the end of March, the Winnemem tribe will be moving forward and will need as much support as possible. A thousand signees onto their petition would be nice! Please sign the petition and be counted! Thank you, Misa
