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.
MORE PETITIONS WANTED
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
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.
