Hate to be the “Grinch” for Thanksgiving, but just start telling the truth. After, U.S.A., 150 + years ago, celebrated Thanksgiving, they went out to KILL CHEYENNES & ARAPAHOS!!
& SHAME ON DEMVER!!!! They celebrated!! When U.S. Army brought back mutilated parts of our ancestors!!! Women, Children & Old People were mutilated, not just Warriors!!
So y’all Turkey day should be like Funeral Feast for our ancestors, n at least offer prayers for the 2015 Runners!! It’s a Healing Run! Our DNA still cries out

Justice for Annie Mae Pictou Aquash Woman Warrior

January 22, 2013 ·

Letters from Leonard.
By Denise Pictou Maloney in Justice for Annie Mae Pictou Aquash Woman Warrior

In 1999, shortly after indictments were issued for the murder of my mother, Leonard sent me a letter from Leavenworth warning us to be wary of what the feds told us regarding his involvement in my mother’s murder, that he had not interrogated my mother who he considered to be like a sister to him and that he loved her very much. The irony at that time was that I had not talked to any authorities or “feds”. I had only been in contact with John Trudell, Dino Butler, Nilak Butler and Rob Robideau who all confirmed that, yes indeed, it was members of AIM who carried out the execution orders to execute Annie Mae on false accusations that she was a fed. Robideau also re-confirmed the gun in the mouth interrogation of my mother by Leonard (my mother had told our family of her interrogation when she came to see us last in the fall, a few months before her death)
When I replied to Peltiers letter I stated that if he seemed so convinced that my mother was murdered by the FBI, he would surely have no problem in helping “his sisters” daughters campaign for her justice and sharing the details and proof that he had to support those claims. His response to my requests for help was that he “would not participate in incarcerating another NDN man” and that he had indeed interrogated my mother but he did not use a gun. Robideau had warned Peltier to leave Annie Maes murder investigation alone and not to get involved. At the same time one of Peltiers minions had contacted me separately and said Leonard would support justice for Annie Mae if we would support him in his clemency campaign for his freedom.
The problem was, is that I had already had several phone conversation and emails with his co accused cousin Robideau who shared many details with me of how “Leonard was a fool to involve himself in the Annie Mae murder by voicing an opinion and that he should have just let sleeping dogs lie” which ended with Leonard publically deciding to support Graham (the man accused and now convicted of the murder of Annie Mae) when we refused to sign a letter of support for Leonard. Robideau said “Leonard was an idiot and he deserved to be where he was and he would go down with the rest of them”. During the five years I had corresponded with Robideau he confirmed many suspicions and details I had been told by other witnesses over the years. When I specifically asked him if Leonard shot those agents he paused for a few seconds and blurted out “I can’t answer that! I am Leonard’s first cousin” and I responded ” you just did” and he nervously laughed and said I didn’t understand what was going on then and that it was a war…it was self defense.
It was during Grahams Trial that Kamook Banks Eccoffey testified that Leonard had bragged to my mother, her sister Bernie and herself about shooting one of the agents point blank while he begged for his life. Leonard Peltier, Dennis Banks, Russell Means, the Bellecourt Brothers, David Hill, Leonard Crow Dog , Bruce Ellison, Madonna Gilbert, Loralie Decora Means, and at least a dozen other witnesses watched as my mother’s was interrogated, kidnapped, beaten , raped, dragged off to her death and then dumped on the side of the road like a bag of garbage. They have all known for 36 years it was not the fbi who murdered Annie Mae and they chose to lie and deceive NDN country to save their own asses.
Currently Leonard and AIM support Graham who was just convicted in Dec. of 2010 for the kidnapping felony murder of Annie Mae. Heros?? I think not . For 28 years our family sat in silent mourning while these cowards postured and reinvented history, and not once did they bother to contact their so called “friends” family. For those with the courage to learn the real truth and not the lies that I am a fed ( lol…. aim and Peltiers only rebuttal towards me, the same title I will remind everyone that they gave to my mother before they executed her) please feel free to contact me with your questions and for more details.

Approximately 40 years ago this week my mother began the horrific journey that would end her life. In memory of her suffering and in light of all ‪#‎MMIW‬ who have suffered at the hands of domestic abuse and violence I thought it necessary to document the last two weeks of her life so those who do not know the facts can experience the truth , efforts and commitment made to bring justice to Annie Maes Memory . To this day AIM, Leonard Peltier and Amnesty International publically support the murderers and those complicit in her execution.

Nov. 24th, 1975- Annie Mae attends an arraignment where she is represented by Lawyer Rob Riter. She is bonded out on weapons charges and is checked into a hotel in Pierre along with other WKLDOC lawyers and assistants to await trial. She later is picked up by Ray Hand Boy and Evelyn Bordeaux (now deceased) and driven to Colorado in the middle of the night. http://www.jfamr.org/doc/handboy.html

AIM member Troy Lynn Yellow Wood would later testify that Annie Mae was brought to her house the week of Thanksgiving (Nov, 27th, 1975) and that thru several occasions over the years she had been told and heard information via John Trudell, Arlo Looking Cloud and Angie Janis (Begay) regarding the execution of Annie Mae by AIM members John (Boy Patton) Graham and Arlo Looking Cloud. http://www.jfamr.org/doc/troytest.html

Our family has not heard from our mother at this point. Later a letter that is en route during this time would surface that explains her condition and upcoming trial. The last we had conversed with her was when she was visiting and had expressed concern and dismay at being interrogated by Leonard Peltier who shoved a gun into her mouth and accused her of being a fed in New Mexico mere weeks before she went missing. Our mother had shared that things were not going well within the American Indian Movement and when our family protested her return to the states she claimed she HAD to go back because she had to prove to her accusers she was not the person they were accusing her of being. This would be the last time we physically saw our Mother.
