But, first women have always been a constant and important part of the struggle for Indigenous rights, but all too often the vital roles which they have played and continue to play is ignored and underestimated.

Fidlin Chair – Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee, Fargo, ND; and Member.

Leonard Peltier’s first full parole hearing was held in 1993, at which time his case was continued for a 15-year reconsideration. Mr. Peltier has recently applied for and been granted a parole hearing. The hearing is scheduled for July 28, 2009. All supporters are encouraged to step up their efforts in support of parole for Leonard Peltier.
