Roberta Blackgoat's trip to Washington, D.C., originally scheduled for Thanksgiving, 2001, was delayed because of events related to the 11 September terrorist attacks and subsequent anthrax detection in and around the Capitol Building. Roberta has not been deterred from presenting her petitions and her views to the nation's lawmakers, but recent events have necessitated her rescheduling the event. The new target date for her presentation will be sometime in April. A specific date has not been given, yet. SENAA will post the specific date, when Roberta and her traveling companion have worked out travel arrangements.


During Roberta Blackgoat's 2001 visit to Sweden (see details on SENAA Sweden's site) , she distributed copies of her newest petition of the U.S. government, the BIA, and Peabody and announced that, after gathering sufficient signatures, she would present them, in person, to the Congress of the United States. Since it has become necessary to delay the trip until April, Roberta is asking Dine'h supporters to continue collecting signatures and mailing them to her. The more signatures the better.

SENAA also reminds supporters that Roberta Blackgoat is a respected Dine'h Elder who has fought long and hard for her people. Most of you will recall that, when empty promises fell through regarding Kee Shay's legal expenses for his Exclusion Hearing, Roberta loaned Kee Shay the money for his attorney fees in order to ensure that his expenses were paid, giving SENAA the time necessary to generate the funds, which we repaid to Roberta Blackgoat. Roberta Blackgoat is a woman of honor. As a woman dedicated to her people, she deserves our help. SENAA asks all Dine'h supporters who are able to please help Roberta fulfill this important undertaking. Gather as many signatures as you can and mail them to Roberta between now and April 1st.

Roberta's petition can be found on and printed from SENAA Sweden's web site.
