Become a Western Shoshone Defender!
Are you a citizen of the United States, the Western Shoshone Nation, or both? If yes, then someone signed the Ruby Valley Treaty for you. Exercise your right to uphold this unique Treaty of Peace and Friendship. The Western Shoshone Defense Project is seeking dedicated people to rebuild our Emergency Response Network now.

Now it's the U.S. Treasury Department!
The Indian Wars to seize lands and livestock for western expansion continues in late 2005! On August 18, 2004, Mr. Yowell received a letter from the U.S. Treasury giving him 10 days to pay $230,566 demanded of him by the BLM for outstanding "grazing fees and interest". The letter dated August 6 said, "If you wish to avoid the pending collection measures being prepared to collect your debt, you must immediately send your check or money order"; but the deadline had already passed. Meanwhile, the Danns and other Western Shoshone have received collection notices and threatening phone calls. Grazing fees and fines assessed against Mary and Carrie Dann top $5 million.
