His Letter to and in support of Chief Spence:
"Tansi Chief Spence
Let me begin by telling you, this is a courageous act on your part and I have a lot of admiration and will support you. This is something that has been very heavy on my mind for some time now and it is not a decision that is taken very lightly. A lot of Prayers and contemplation went into this and the decision was finally made after I learned about your hunger strike. I will support you in every which way I know how and I firmly believe that this is the right path to take. I read the article and also have reasons of my own to go on the hunger strike. Very briefly, Many of us and supporters from outside of our province have been working very hard to prevent the nuclear waste management organization from building a high level radioactive waste repository (nuclear dump) in Northern Saskatchewan, or any where in Saskatchewan. I'm also doing it for the Young Women of Idle No More are working tirelessly against the sections of the bills that will affect our way of life. The assimilation policy is a very sick twisted social engineering scheme that keeps rearing it's ugly head. I will be starting the hunger strike tomorrow morning in support of all of you. After 30 days of the hunger strike, if we don't get any favourable action on the part of both Federal and Provincial government(s), then, it will be a hunger strike to the death. And again, this is my decision and I don't expect other People to make this commitment. Before I could start with the hunger strike, I had to humbly ask my family to respect and support my decision and to get their blessing. It's very hard to ask People who are very close to you, to our People respect, support and to give you their blessing to give up your life for a causes you firmly believe in. This we do for our Children, GrandChildren, future generations and "Mother Earth" and all life forms that have sustain us our People for a long long time.
E-kosi, My prayers to you all
