RED STICK CONFEDERACY

Okay...you're here. Thanks for coming, and I hope I can open your eyes just a little. Now, let me lay out a scenario for you......

It's Thursady night, you just got home from work. Your boss has been on your ass all week, your kids are driving you insane, and your wife is in a mood so foul she could freeze beer. You're in no mood for anyone's shit, and have gotten to the point of "I can't take this much longer". All you want to do is kick back in your favorite chair, grab a cold one and watch the tube for awhile. Just tune out the world. Fortunately, your wife notices your mood and just leaves you alone. She smiles (the first time in a year it seems!) and hands you the mail.

You go through it and notice a curious letter. It has been opened so you know your wife has seen it. You open it and begin to read.....

Dear Sir/Ma'am: This letter is to inform you that ABC Construction, Inc. will begin removing all graves, headstones, and remains of all individuals interred at XYZ Cemetary on Monday of next week. This will be facilitated to initialize landscaping activities so we may bring you a new, state-of-the-art, super-duper shopping center!! We understand this is your loved ones final resting place, but we are confident you will not oppose this project, as we know you would rather have a new shopping center. Therefore, all graves will be dug up, the bones placed in cardboard boxes, and stored in a warehouse indefinetly. Any artifacts found in these graves will probably be stolen or sold, but, those that are not will be sent to museums or destroyed as seen fit. Thank You

How's that info sitting after a week from hell? Did it wake you up a little? Don't think it can happen? Try again......

I am a Dog Soldier for the Red Stick Confederacy. What the hell is that you ask? Well, I'll tell you. A Dog Soldier is a warrior---one who fights to protect the children, the elders and any and all of the people who walk the Red Road. We fight to protect our LIVES, our HERITAGE, our CULTURE and our ANCESTORS.

All across this land, Corporate America has destroyed, and continues to destroy, pieces of us---continuing the process of extermination begun by Thomas Jefferson, continued by Andrew Jackson and overseen by the U.S. Goverment.

The Red Stick Confederacy is a non-profit (yes, its tax deductable) organization based out of Nashville, Tennessee. We are a group of Indians, from many different Nations including Shawnee, Chickasaw, Cherokee, Apache, Souix, Ojibway, and Choctaw. The Confederacy raises money to buy land throughout the United States. The land bought is that which our ancestors are buried on. These burial sites are threatened by companies and the goverment. Sometimes these graves are destroyed to make room for another shopping center or roads or highways. Do you know what happens to the bones of our ancestors? No...they are not re-interred. Instead, they are placed in a cardboard box and housed in a warehouse. The sacred items buried with them are stolen, given to museums, or sold. How would you like for your Grandmother to be removed from her final resting place, placed in a box, and stored in a warehouse? I didn't think so.....

The lands we buy are placed in a conservancy trust. They can NEVER be disturbed, improved, sold, or built upon. The land can NEVER be touched.....by CORPORATIONS or GOVERMENT.

So, if you really want to help....here is your chance. We accept any donation you can make. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING helps!!!! Whether its .50 cents, 5 dollars or 500 dollars......ANYTHING!!! All donations should be made to their offices.....
