ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - An arrest warrant has been issued for a tribal activist who is accused of rape. 

Santa Fe police issued the warrant on Monday for 41-year-old Redwolf Pope, who lives in Santa Fe part of the time.

Police began their investigation into Pope last June when his roommates told officers they found videos that appear to show him raping unconscious women.

Lt. Michele Williams of the Santa Fe Police Department said the agency is working closely with the Seattle Police Department to investigate the case, since Pope is reported to travel frequently between the two cities and may have committed crimes in either or both.

The Washington woman told police that Pope, identified in other news media as a member of the Tlingit tribe of the Pacific Northwest, is well respected by the tribe’s elders.

In court documents, Pope’s roommates describe him as the traveling, self-employed owner of the companies MediaDojo LLC and Redwolf Law LLC.

A spokeswoman with the Tulalip Tribal Court in Washington state confirmed he has been a member of the tribal bar since 2013.

Traveling business owner charged with rape in Santa Fe

    Sami Edge Jul 24, 2018 Updated Jul 24, 2018 (…)


Santa Fe police issued an arrest warrant Monday for a traveling business owner they’ve been investigating for over a month on suspicion of sex crimes.

Redwolf Pope, 41, is accused of sexually assaulting women who appear to be unresponsive and recording the crimes, according to an affidavit seeking a warrant for his arrest.

Local police have been investigating these and other allegations since at least early June, when Pope’s roommates told officers they had found video that appears to show him raping unconscious women. The roommates also told police they believe he planted hidden cameras in his apartment in Seattle, where they sometimes stay, and may have also planted cameras in the apartment they share in Santa Fe.

A woman from the Seattle area also told police in that city earlier this month that she believes Pope raped her in a Santa Fe hotel room when she was visiting the area last fall.

On Monday, a Santa Fe County Magistrate Court judge signed off on an arrest warrant for Pope.

He is facing charges of criminal sexual penetration, criminal sexual contact, aggravated battery and false imprisonment.

According to the affidavit for Pope’s arrest, the woman from Washington tried to put the situation with Pope out of her mind until one of Pope’s roommates called to tell her they’d found videos of him having sex with unconscious women.

The tattoos of one of the women in the videos match those of the woman from Washington, according to the affidavit. When the woman was shown a screenshot of the recording, the affidavit says, she confirmed the tattoos match her own.

Lt. Michele Williams of the Santa Fe Police Department said the agency is working closely with the Seattle Police Department to investigate the case, since Pope is reported to travel frequently between the two cities and may have committed crimes in either or both.

The Washington woman told police that Pope, identified in other news media as a member of the Tlingit tribe of the Pacific Northwest, is well respected by the tribe’s elders.

In court documents, Pope’s roommates describe him as the traveling, self-employed owner of the companies MediaDojo LLC and Redwolf Law LLC.

A spokeswoman with the Tulalip Tribal Court in Washington state confirmed he has been a member of the tribal bar since 2013.

According to the TEDx Seattle website, Pope gave a talk in Seattle titled “Lessons of Courage from Standing Rock,” and is the founder of a business called Maru.

Pope did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

I saw something from a Tlingit person saying he is not Tlingit. Then I saw one article, but I will have to find it, saying he is Western Shoshone. So I am wondering if he is related to John Pope aka Rolling Thunder.

n a police interview last week, one woman told a Seattle detective that she had known Pope for years and had trusted him in the past because of his standing in her tribe, which is Tlingit.

Pope appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News in the past to discuss Native American perspectives on Thanksgiving, The Santa Fe New Mexican reported. The show identified his tribal affiliation as being Western Shoshone.

Mala and Redwolf are both Shoshone, thru John Pope's wife. The thread on Mala shows that he also has a long list of accusations of abusing and assaulting women, in his case in Europe.

We (myself, and T Jacobs of the Gohiyuhi website) actually were in contact with Redwolf Pope maybe 15-18 years ago, several emails. At the time Redwolf was trying to start a Native owned media company. He confirmed that his grandfather was a white imposter but defended him as not an exploiter, just someone trying to guide hippies who was ultimately frustrated by the effort. There were no accusations of his grandfather abusing anyone that I know of.

July 26--A story on Page A-7 of the Wednesday, July 25, 2018, edition of The New Mexican, about an arrest warrant issued for a man accused of sexual crimes, incorrectly reported that Redwolf Pope, who splits time between Santa Fe and Seattle, was an owner of Washington state-based MediaDojo LLC. He helped co-found the company, according to current CEO Ron Villahermosa, but has not been a part of the company since September. The story also said Pope has been identified in news media as a member of the Tlingit tribe. However, a tribal official says his name is not included in a database of Tlingit members.

Police are investigating whether Redwolf Pope, a well-known Native American activist and entrepreneur arrested this week amid accusations that he drugged and raped a woman in New Mexico last year, may have committed similar crimes in Seattle.

“There may be other victims in Seattle, and we want them to be encouraged to reach out to us,” Seattle police spokesman Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said Thursday.

Quote
Pope’s LinkedIn page describes him as a co-founder and chief executive for several tech startups, and it lists Pope as an attorney who has worked for the Tulalip Tribal Court since February 2012. But Tulalip Tribal Court Director Wendy Church said in a phone message Thursday that Pope doesn’t work as a lawyer for the tribe.

“He is not an attorney to my knowledge,” Church said. “He was never an attorney here; he was an extern in our civil legal aid office.”
Quote
A spokeswoman for the Washington State Bar Association, which licenses attorneys in Washington, confirmed Thursday that Pope is not a licensed lawyer in this state.

Pope attended Seattle University from 2008 through 2013 and received a law degree there, but a university spokesman said Thursday that Pope didn’t finish a master’s degree in public administration that is listed on his LinkedIn page

TEDxSeattle has since taken Pope's talk down from the web and released a statement condemning the alleged behavior.

The charging documents also state that Pope would also rent his Seattle apartment on Airbnb. KING 5 notified the company of the charges. It has removed Pope as a host and is reaching out to law enforcement in case they could help out in the investigation. Airbbnb says surveillance devices are never permitted in private spaces such as bathrooms, bedrooms or other sleeping areas.

In Addition to Santa Fe Charges, Redwolf Pope Now Faces 2 Charges of Rape in Seattle

--------------------------------------------------------

SEATTLE — Already in Santa Fe, New Mexico jail, Redwolf Pope, a man who for years has claimed to American Indian, is now facing two counts of rape in Seattle, Washington. The King County Prosecutor’s Office confirms Pope will be arraigned in a King County court on August 23, 2018.

Pope, who also represented himself as an attorney-though has not passed the bar exam in the states of Washington or New Mexico, the two states he lived in prior to his arrest. Pope maintained two apartments: One in Santa Fe and one in Seattle’s Capitol Hill location.

Pope is currently jailed in Santa Fe being detained on a $500,000 bond. He was arrested last month in Phoenix being charged in Santa Fe with criminal sexual penetration in the 3rd degree, criminal sexual contact, aggravated battery, and false imprisonment.

The case against him involves both his apartments in Santa Fe, New Mexico and on Boylston Avenue in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Redwolf Pope has been charged with two counts of second degree rape in the assaults at the Boylston-Howell building in the 1700 block of Boylston. Pope maintained a fourth-floor residence in the Capitol Hill Housing building, available only to tenants earning 40% and 50% of area median income, and another in Santa Fe where he faces similar charges for a sexual assault on a Seattle-area woman.

Quote
According to court documents on the Seattle assaults, the two women associates of Pope who turned over the videos to police were staying in his Capitol Hill apartment while he was away when they discovered the cameras and that it was common for people to stay in the unit including when Pope hosted “Airbnb” guests.

Quote
“The defendant hid video cameras around his apartment in Seattle where he captured images of friends who he invited in his home, as well as his unwitting roommates,” prosecutors write. “Most disturbingly, the defendant filmed himself raping women, women who were friends of the defendant.”

Seattle Police say the first rape on the videos discovered this past May was recorded on video November 30, 2016 and shows an unidentified woman being sexually violated in Pope’s Capitol Hill apartment bedroom. “As S/Pope sexually assaulted V/Jane Doe, penis to vagina, she does not move in the slightest,” police write of the video showing the attack on the woman:

Quote
Detectives were able to identify and interview a woman being sexually assaulted in a second video dated July 27, 2017. A third video shows what police say is a rape inside a Santa Fe hotel room.

Police say beyond the raw videos showing the assaults and women showering, Pope made his videos into a movie complete with a soundtrack. “The defendant was so proud of his repulsive behavior that spliced together the three known rape videos and compiled a montage set to music,” prosecutors write.

The Marysville, Washington woman police were able to identify as the victim in the second video said Pope had given her a sweet beverage before she blacked out

Redwolf Pope pleads not guilty to rape, kidnapping charges

    By Sami Edge | sedge@sfnewmexican.com Sep 20, 2018

Redwolf Pope, an activist for Native American causes, pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of rape, kidnapping and voyeurism in a state District Court in Santa Fe.

If convicted on all counts, Pope, 41, could face more than 20 years behind bars.

Pope is accused of raping an unconscious woman in a Santa Fe hotel in August 2017 and recording the incident on video.

The woman, a Seattle-area resident, told police in that city about the alleged incident in July.

Police in Santa Fe had begun investigating Pope about a month earlier after his roommate told officers she had discovered what appeared to be recording devices in Pope’s apartments and lewd videos saved on some of his digital devices. Some of the videos appear to be candid footage of people in Pope’s apartments who didn’t know they were being recorded in the nude, according to an affidavit for his arrest.

A statement of probable cause says videos also appear to show Pope having sex with unconscious women. The tattoos on one of the women in the videos match the tattoos on the Washington state woman who accused Pope of raping her in Santa Fe, the affidavit says.

After Pope was charged and arrested in connection with the Santa Fe rape allegation, Seattle police accused him of raping two women in that city.

During Pope’s arraignment Thursday, his attorney, Stephen Aarons, told District Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer he is not yet asking that Pope be released because he is also facing detention for the charges in Seattle.

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A judge has released a Native American activist charged with rape because prosecutors violated evidence rules.

Redwolf Pope is accused of raping a woman in 2017 and recording the encounter. However, his defense attorney says he never received a search warrant affidavit used to gather digital evidence in the case and asked for the case to be dismissed.

Prosecutors say they did give the defense digital photos of the affidavit, just not the paper copies. The judge ruled dismissing the case or suppressing evidence would too strong a response, so she ordered Redwolf’s release as a sanction against prosecutors.

Coming soon to a protest/protector's camp near you.

Activist women, beware. We have now seen a handful of cases where rapists and child molestors have been released and their records wiped in exchange for them turning informant / agent provacateur in Native activist communities.

Some of these men are pretendians, some of them are NDNs.

If there is a guy you know who did time, but you look up his record in PACER, and now it's gone... BINGO. You've found someone who cut a deal to disrupt NDN Country, and/or spy on activists, in exchange for a clean start.

Watch and see if this guy turns up at actions, and if his record gets wiped.

So this happened -

Redwolf Pope, a Native American activist charged with raping a woman in Santa Fe last year, also faces rape accusations in Seattle, a police statement shows.

Pope, 41, who court documents say has homes in both Seattle and Santa Fe, was charged in Santa Fe in late July with criminal sexual penetration, criminal sexual contact, aggravated battery and false imprisonment after a Seattle-area woman told investigators Pope had raped her when she was visiting Santa Fe last year.

The charges followed a collaborative investigation by police in both cities that began when roommates of Pope told Santa Fe police they found videos that appear to show Pope raping unconscious women.

A newly released statement by a Seattle detective says investigators determined there are at least three women in the videos, “each of whom clearly appear to be unconscious and unresponsive.”

A day after a Santa Fe judge signed an arrest warrant for Pope, officers arrested him last month in Phoenix, where he has remained in jail awaiting transfer back to Santa Fe.

Santa Fe County Magistrate David Segura rejected a motion by Pope’s lawyer, Stephen Aarons, to quash the arrest warrant, and Segura ordered the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office to bring Pope to Santa Fe to face charges.

A probable cause statement signed Thursday by the Seattle police detective said investigators there believe Pope raped two women in that city as well.

The document says that after Pope’s arrest in Phoenix, Seattle police were able to identify a woman they think was raped by Pope in a video recorded in his Seattle apartment.

That woman told police by phone it was possible she could have been a victim, the document says, because she recalled an evening in 2017 when she ended up in Pope’s bed and didn’t know how she got there.

At Seattle police headquarters, officers asked the woman to look at a screenshot of the head and neck area of a woman in one of the videos, the document says, and the woman recognized it as an image of herself.

After viewing the video, the woman “immediately started to wail and cry. She curled up into a ball on her chair, pulling her legs toward her body, wrapping her arms around her legs, all as she pushed back away from the table and the picture,” the document says.

The woman told police that Pope had picked her up on the night in question and had given her a drink. She could not remember what happened afterward, she told police, but she woke up in Pope’s bed the next day with no recollection of how she got there.

“She was convinced, due to their strong friendship, nothing had happened other than an awkward exchange,” the police document says.

The probable cause document says police have not identified the third woman in the videos. However, the room in the video appears to be in Pope’s Seattle apartment, the document says, and shows a woman being sexually assaulted on Nov. 30, 2016.

Based on the evidence, the document says, Seattle police have cause to believe Pope committed second-degree rape twice in that city.

Aarons, Pope’s Santa Fe attorney, said late Friday he didn’t have any knowledge of any rape accusations in Seattle.

“It’s not something that I knew about,” Aarons said in a phone interview. “I know about the case here. … There was a consensual relationship here. I don’t know anything about these other cases.”

In his motion to quash Pope’s arrest warrant, Aarons had argued that the woman who alleged she was raped by Pope in Santa Fe was a former girlfriend who does not remember having consensual sex with his client because she was intoxicated.

That contradicts what the woman told police.

According to a police affidavit seeking the warrant for Pope’s arrest, the woman said he was an acquaintance who was respected by elders in her Pacific Northwest tribe. He picked her up from a party in Santa Fe when she was visiting, she said, and gave her an alcoholic beverage. She was unable to remember the rest of the evening, she told police, and the following morning she woke up in a hotel room with Pope and was frightened when he insinuated that something romantic had occurred between them.

She told police that she “in no way, had those kinds of feelings toward Mr. Pope,” the detective wrote.

Prosecutors plan to ask a judge to keep Pope jailed in New Mexico while he awaits trial here, according to court documents filed earlier this week.

Pope told Marlowe Sommer that he’ll live with his girlfriend in Albuquerque until trial. He has been described as a liaison for elders, veterans and legal representatives during the 2016 North Dakota oil pipeline protests and had delivered a TEDx Talk in Seattle about the protests.

School of Law Alumna Accuses Seattle U of Failure to Support Victims of Abuse 

Myrea Mora and Logan Gilbert|May 26, 2021

Quote
Priscilla Moreno, Seattle University School of Law alumna, has come forward to accuse Seattle U of not taking the proper precautions to protect her from her abuser. She recounted her experience with university administration, stating that they did not do enough to keep her safe, jeopardizing her physical and mental well-being.

After experiencing domestic abuse for months, Moreno reached out to Seattle U. She was unsure of what steps she should take in an effort to seek protection from her abuser Redwolf Pope. She states that she felt dismissed, ridiculed and undervalued in the coming months as the situation unfolded between Pope, the School of Law and university administration, a reoccurring failure of the university to effectively fight sexual abuse.

Quote
Mitchel Wilson, another 2014 Seattle U School of Law alumni and peer of Moreno, corroborated that Moreno told him about the events of Pope’s abuse at the time, and the lack of institutional support Moreno experienced.

“I knew something was wrong and as we started talking, she told me about how Pope had thrown her into a wall, how he had choked her and how he had clawed his own face and told people she had attacked him,” Wilson said. “She said that no one would listen to her and believe her story.”

So frustrating. 18 years for kidnapping and only 4 for rape?

Jury convicts Redwolf Pope of rape, voyeurism
Sep 18, 2020 Updated Oct 24, 2021
Redwolf Pope lifted his head and relaxed his shoulders as if in relief when the jury foreman announced he’d been found not guilty of kidnapping Friday. Pope bowed his head again when the foreman announced the jury had found him guilty of rape and voyeurism.
Santa Fe jurors deliberated for less than four hours before finding Pope guilty of rape and voyeurism but acquitting him of kidnapping — the most serious charge.

Pope could have been sentenced up to 18 years on the kidnapping charge, a first-degree felony. The rape and voyeurism charges — a third-degree felony and misdemeanor, respectively — carry a combined maximum penalty of four years in prison.

Prosecutors said Pope, 44, took photos and video of himself sexually assaulting a Seattle woman in a Santa Fe hotel room in 2017 while she was apparently unconscious.

The woman Pope was convicted of raping had asked him to give her a ride home from a party, according to evidence presented at trial.
She testified that Pope, an acquaintance, gave her a beverage when she entered his vehicle, and she didn’t remember anything after that until she woke up in his hotel room the next morning.

Video shown at trial depicted a man whose face could not be seen — but who was wearing the red ribbons Pope had been photographed wearing during Indian Market celebrations leading up to the assault — raping his victim.
Deputy District Attorney Larissa Breen told jurors in her closing statement that each act of undressing, moving or posing the woman’s body while she was incapacitated was an act of kidnapping.

Pope’s Public Defender, Brad Kerwin, argued Pope was not guilty of kidnapping because the woman had willingly entered his vehicle.

“We always knew [the kidnapping] was going to be the toughest charge to prove,” Mary Carmack-Altwies, district attorney-elect, said in a text message following the verdict Friday. “But we felt it was important to fight it.”

“I would rather push a case of this nature to trial than acquiesce that the only crimes Pope committed was rape and voyeurism,” Carmack-Altwies said in a subsequent email, “however the jury did not convict on kidnapping — I respect that decision and the trial process. ... However, it is an outrage that Pope is only facing [four] years for drugging and raping a woman whereas the kidnapping would have added 18 years to his sentence.”

Kerwin said in a statement there were “multiple issues” with the case “and the court even sanctioned prosecutors a couple of times” and that he and co-counsel Rebecca Mnuk-Herrmann plan to appeal Pope’s convictions.

The charges against Pope, filed in 2018, arose out of a joint investigation by police in Santa Fe and Seattle that began after Pope’s roommates came forward to Santa Fe police with videos that appeared to show him sexually assaulting unconscious women in both cities.

Pope — an actor and producer of Native films who prosecutors suggested in court also had held himself out to be a lawyer — has two rape cases pending in Seattle.

“Before the trial the Court ruled that the jury could not hear about the full extent of Pope’s deviance including the number of victims and pending charges in Seattle,” Carmack-Altwies said.

“No one ‘wins’ in this forum,” Carmack-Altwies wrote, “we don’t go home and mark a tally. We do go home and know that our advocacy was not a failure ... he is facing [four] years as a serious violent offender and must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.”
Pope will receive about two years credit toward his sentence for time he spent in custody awaiting trial and will serve his sentence in New Mexico before standing trial in Seattle.
