bill 1691, which would take
away or limit tribal sovereignty.
The bill is designed to take
away sovereign status of the
Indian Nations so they could be
suited both in federal courts and
state courts. It would also make

is allowed to take away our

To the editor,
As an old friend of George Linn' s,
who passed on at Madras in Novem
ber of 1993, I have a painting done by
Vern Rowe that he gave to George.
At this time I think that Vern might
like to have it back and am trying to
locate him. '
If any of your readers are still in
touch with Vern, or know his ad
dress. I would appreciate their help.
They could either pass my address
on to Vern or send his address to me.
Thanks for your help!

Happy Birthday Phillip Guerin
from your best bud,
To the editor,
I am writing to all my family,
vl'itivpc and neoole in regards to our
tjme t0 vote for our tribal council
members. I have thought this through
vcrv strongly and feel that we need
somcone in these scats that has a lot
0f intelligence ot our people, com-
v.,miiv unH trihal dcoartments.
I also feel that we need council
members that care for our people
with a strong heart and good leader
ship qualities that will come to the
Longhouses, schools, community
conferences and community meet
ings, that are held by community
members, not just the tribal agenda
I have carefully looked over our
nominees, I would like to share my
suggestions of good quality leaders.
For Mr. Jeff Sanders I see a very
promising strong background in the
recreation area, tribal law enforce
ment, education, compliance, public
speaker, federal laws, state laws and
tribal government and the strong
knowledge he has for the needs of
ourtribal organizations. I have known
Jeff Sanders for several years and
find him to have a lot of intelligence
of our people. This is what we need
to have for good leadership. I know
that he thinks things through care
fully. I know that he feels very highly
of our traditions and customs. I see
Mr. Sanders as a strong leader, and a
promising one who could make a big
stride for our people.
Another nominee I fee has a lot of
knowledge of traditional ways is
George Clements, Sr. He has also
been there for the youth as long as I
remember, in the past with myself

universities and colleges with a very
low success rate of completion. It
was against this background of low
expectations that I entered the Uni
yersity of Oregon in 1993. .
""JMy own academic background
and preparation for university level
work was very poor. I was a young
unwed teenage mother, then at the
age of fifteen I was married with two
children, I dropped out of high school
as a sophomore and started working
for the tribes at the age of twenty-one
and worked for the tribes for seven
teen years. I have struggled at the age
of forty to catch-up academically,
financially and socially. Yet, I have
received my Bachelor's degree and I
strive to complete my advanced de
gree. I think with the help of my
Tribe, my family and my commu
nity, I have beaten the odds.
Again, I must thank "the commu
nity" for supporting my goal for a
higher education by providing the
financial means and emotional sup
port. Without the funds, encourage
ment and acknowledgment from the
community for my efforts, I prob

all to vote for tribal council
who had been there for his own chil
dren. I feel with these qualities he
would know many of the needs of
our community. I remember George
working as a police officer for sev
eral years, also logging, he also
owned his own business for many
years (the Chevron gas station on
Hwy 26). I see George working in
the community as an appellate judge
today. I feel that with the intelligence
George has in the law department, he
would have a lot of knowledge of the
bylaws, traditional laws and tribal
laws along with federal and state.
From the experiences I see about Mr.
Clements is: he is vcry highly moti
vated and concerned about out people
and about where our tribes stand, I
also see him as a good strong leader.
I also feel Bernice Mitchell, who
has the experience of one of the seats
in Tribal Council in the past would
be well qualified. I have seen Bernice

very valuable to one of the tribal
