Leonard Peltier Holiday Gift Drive

The Lakota People have four values to live by: bravery, wisdom, generosity,

and fortitude. Generosity (Wacantognaka) is essential to a Lakota. It is

better to give a lot than to have a lot. The best way to honor people is

through giveaways (otuhan) where the givers share much of what they have

with others, sometimes giving away everything in their possession. Leonard

Peltier offers all his supporters an opportunity to give something back and

honor the Lakota people. He respectfully requests your help making these

holidays a little brighter and this winter a little warmer for the children

at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Special Thanks to Daniel McGowan, his family and friends who have joined the

LPDC in our efforts to make the holiday season brighter for the children of

the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Leonard Peltier Legal Update- October 2007- U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit, Leonard Peltier Defense Committee

Leonard Peltier Legal Update- October 2007- U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit

On October 9, 2007, the Leonard Peltier legal team, Ron Kuby and David

Pressman filed a reply brief with the United States Courts of Appeals for

the Eight Circuit.

Defendant-Appellee (" the Government") continues to categorically insist

that there is no degree of governmental misconduct toward a FOIA litigant

that could cause a court to "question the good faith of the agency," Cox v

Department of Justice, 576 F2d 1302, 1312( 8 Cir.1978) unless the litigant

can prove misconduct in the FOIA proceedings themselves. The Government’s

assertion that it can wave away its sordid history of proven FBI and

prosecutorial misconduct toward Peltier with a " what have we done to you

lately" nonchalance rests entirely on the Government’s own insistence.

More significantly, the Government conflates Peltier’s lengthy, documented,

proven history of the most serious governmental misconduct with some

fanciful, gauzy grievance made by some hypothetical litigant. The Government

again demonstrates that it does not now, nor has it ever, taken seriously

any of the courts that have admonished it about the treatment of Leonard

Peltier. It has been proven that the FBI withheld exculpatory evidence,

manufactured inculpatory evidence that it knew to be false, coerced

witnesses and engaged in an over reaction to Wounded Knee sufficiently grave

to cause a Senior Judge of this Court to opine that the Government shares

responsibility for the firefight that led to the death of the two FBI

agents. The Government has shown no solicitude for the enormous" burden on

the judiciary" that its own malfeasance has caused.

Appeals for the Eight Circuit. ( filed Oct 9, 2007) :

Condolences to the Bellecourt Family, from the Leonard Peltier, and the LPDC

Leonard Peltier, and the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee extend our

condolences to the Bellecourt Family. Vernon died Saturday, October 13, 2007

at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Minneapolis Minnesota surrounded by his

friends and family.

Vernon Bellecourt, whose Objibwe name (WaBun-Inini) means Man of Dawn was a

member of Minnesota’s White Earth Band and was an international spokesman

for the AIM Grand Governing Council based in Minneapolis. He was 75. In

recent years, Bellecourt had been active in the fight against American

Indian nicknames for sports teams as president of the National Coalition on

Racism in Sports and Media. He was arrested in Cleveland during the 1997

World Series and again in 1998 during protests against the Cleveland

Indian’s Mascot, Chief Wahoo. Charges were dropped for the first time and he

was never charged on the second case.

A Celebration of Vernon’s Life to be held on Monday, October 15, 2007 at

All Nations Indian Church, 1515 E 23rd Street Minneapolis, MN 55404. Wake

to be held on Tuesday, October 16, 2007 at the Circle of Life School, White
