Subject: [nafps] Re: Seven Fires, not Seventh Fires & Allen Heart

I called the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council office and they stated that they have no affiliation with 7fires.org. Matter of fact they mentioned thier lack of affiliation with the Rosebud Advocacy Group
and the web of life enterprises.

I was told that because of the growth of the internet, all these groups keep popping up that claim to help the people, only to do nothing..

So thats enuf for me on whats up with this...  Its good that this woman is stating that the language should be preserved, what is she doing to help preserve it?
