Temporary good news on NOOKSACK 306 elders, as reported by noted Native American rights attorney Gabriel Galanda:
Prayers answered. These two Nooksack Elders were able to trigger an eviction stay in tribal court, pending appeal. They and their loved ones remain safe for now. But with the Nooksack tribal council serving as "supreme court," their evictions still appear inevitable. This situation remains a blight upon all Native nations.
This keeps the elder's eviction on hold, but the stated goal of the Nooksack Tribe is to get them out. The HIGH COURT, will rubber stamp the eviction.
This belies the statement in their recent newsletter:
"Many Native peoples have the teaching that we are all related, our clans and kinship systems show us how we are connected to each other.
