Sacajawea's People Exiled From Homelands - Fighting to Restore Federal 
by Kel Ariwite
FYI ... did you know that Sacajawea?s people were exiled to the Fort Hall 
Indian Reservation (Idaho) after an executive order established a 100 
square mile Lemhi Valley Indian Reservation by an executive order from 
President Ulysses S. Grant on February 12, 1875. The executive order 
established the reserve for the exclusive use of the tribes of the 
Agaidikas (salmon-eaters) and the Tukudikas (sheep-eaters) later known as 
the Lemhi-Shoshone, Sacajawea?s People. 
What Would it be Like to be Free? 
by John Rustywire
There was at time once. It was summer once, where all those that lived in 
the valleys, hills and mountains enjoyed the long days of summer. The 
flowers grew, the nuts, plants and grasses tasted sweet, and the warmth of 
the sun brought life to everything. There is nothing like the quiet of a 
valley meadow with a cool breeze and the rush of mountain stream nearby. 
One can sit and enjoy the slow movement of cloud across the blue sky, and 
watch the flight of the eagle dancing on the wind way up so high it is a 
mere speck in the sky. It is the time of youth, of hopes, dreams and 
feeling that somewhere in the world everything is alright for those 
moments where time stands still.

West Nile Virus 
by Kasey Wolf Weaver
Today I heard my first news of the season on the local station. It wasn?t 
about flowers or robins heralding in spring or even the nice weather we?ve 
been having here in northeast U.S. Instead it was a report on how a dead 
crow was found to have the West Nile Virus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Buffalo Stampede Thundering Ahead 
forwarded by Kasey Wolf Weaver 
Things are busy here on the western boundary of Yellowstone as the end of 
another field season approaches. Last night a story including the Buffalo 
Field Campaign aired on NBC Nightly News. Unfortunately we found out too 
late to alert you in this update, but hopefully some of you saw it. It was 
a long time in coming, but at last we're getting more national attention. 
Enviro-Rant >From an All Natural Soapbox 
by Jamie Lockard  
Bush and Bennett and Boneheads! Oh my! Were that we could just land a 
house on them as easily as Dorothy did. I?m afraid, however, that the 
Wicked *itch that would replace the current clowns could be even worse 
than the original.
