Thanks Tom, this is something I support as the Native Americans, not only have a raw deal by being excluded from the American Constitution and Human Rights, but have their religious rights totally ignored. However, I am confused as their "goal is to submit the petition by September 12, 2007" Is this still running or being updated?

Kat.....I've had that for a very long time
& have no idea where I found it.
There were no tribes listed to the lines.

It is beautiful & synonomous with the
indian culture of spare usage of
everything in nature.

Just imagine what this earth
would be like all wrapped up
in trees & natures natural colors......
especially green.

Plant trees for life.

I don't know the answer to your question Gillian, so I wrote the LPDC at to find out :) I'll post the response here if and when I get one. I hadn't noticed the date, but as the petition isn't closed yet, it probably can't hurt to sign it.

Here are two newer Leonard Peltier petitions I just posted:

Sign Petition: Executive Clemency for Leonard Peltier

Sign Petition: For the Release of Peltier Case Documents Under FOIA
