“I got my dander up, I’m 90 years old, why don’t the people call the President of the United States since it is an emergency. The emergency is them digging up the graves like at Glen Cove in Vallejo, California.
They’ve taken enough land away from the Indians. Now they’ve got a lot of land on the White side that they took away from the Indians. So why don’t they go to those cemeteries and dig up the graves?
As Indians we don’t go looking around for White man’s bones and what they had. When they rest we let them rest. And whatever they take with them that’s theirs, that belongs to them. If they wanted YOU to have it, they would have given it to you.
If the United States cannot go by the law, then why should we abide by it?
Now the World has gone down because of these corporations, and WHEN are you going to stop.
When you don’t do right In this world, then the Creator will see that you do."
