International Tribunal on the Abuse of Indigenous Human Rights


DePere, WI, September 11, 2013 --(PR.com)-- "We have an oral tradition. In this way, the stories about our 500 years of oppression have been passed down through the generations. Now, we have the means to record that history and share it with the world. The Leonard Peltier International Tribunal on the Abuse of Indigenous Human Rights will tell our stories with a focus on the last 40 years," said Dorothy Ninham, founder and director of Wind Chases the Sun.

What: Leonard Peltier International Tribunal on the Abuse of Indigenous Human Rights

When: 02-04 October 2013

Where: Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, 2040 Airport Drive, Green Bay, Wisconsin 54313

Supported by the Oneida Nation, the purpose of this historic, public Tribunal is to digitally document first-hand witness accounts of 40 years of malfeasance in Indian Country, and the continuing struggles of Indigenous Peoples.

Issues addressed will include but are not limited to fishing rights, the sterilization of Indigenous women, extreme poverty, theft of tribes' natural resources, environmental issues and their impact on Indian reservations, the horrific rate of suicides among Native children, and the wrongful conviction of Leonard Peltier (specifically the events that led up to the June 26, 1975, incident at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and the effects on survivors of this period).

All Indigenous Peoples are invited to provide testimony. Tribes are encouraged to send a delegation of tribal elders to participate.

The Tribunal is open to the public.
