Lifelong Toledo resident Dave Martin was away from his home when it burned to the ground last week. Recent health issues add to the total loss, and a GoFundMe campaign has been established to help.
Billie Washington says: Friends & Family,
The Standing Rock issue can be resolved if the law is followed. Attached is the International Indigenous Sovereign Laws Document.
This needs to get out so please share. They need to quit beating around the bush and get to the heart of it!!! The Army Corp of Engineers do not even understand the law and many of us do not either, so we need to educate ourselves first.

INTRODUCTION LETTER: International Indigenous Sovereign Law Documents
Dear Tribal Chief Archambault,
Attached, find the following International Indigenous Sovereign Law documents for your review and discussion among the appropriate Tribal leaders and legal team who are collaborating to initiate the Government to Government/Nation to Nation strategies for the protection of water regarding the 1851 Great Tetuwan Treaty Rights, in response to the attempt of the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline on and near Standing Rock tribal land.

- Nevada Case: Indigenous Sovereignty Joann Spotted Bear
The International Indigenous Sovereign Law documents were compiled by Rudy Al James, Tlingit of Ketchikan, Alaska. He had been making presentations to various tribes in hopes of educating tribal leaders and American Indian communities about these laws with the hope of truly protecting our land and natural resources, language and cultures. I assisted Mr. James in disseminating the attached documents because he intended for American Indians to use them for their purpose.
