Please Hold in Prayer

The Winnemem Wintu Human Rights Violation Court Case has been taken off the court's calendar for Friday April 23, according to Chief Caleen Sisk Franco. Apparently, the judge will make a ruling and sending it to the attorneys. I can only pray this is all part of the Nur Ceremony and that the Winnemem and all that they stand for -- the Salmon, the Sacred Lands, their Ancestors, their Tribal Way of Life -- will persevere in the courts and Justice will finally be served. I can only pray that the rights of tribes and human beings, the rights of Nature and Earth are important.

So I agree with our Chief in asking all of you to say strong prayers for the Winnemem, the the courts will uphold the human rights of the Winnemem and all they stand for.
