The Chinook Indian Nation has begun a direct appeal to the President of the United States, asking for executive action to right the wrongs that continue to be perpetuated on our historically important Indian Nation.

This is a huge project and we need your help. Your donations help pay for printing, postage and the office help that makes this project happen.

We are a501c 3, please feel free to contact our office for information about charitable contributions.

Any donation over $30 is eligible to receive a #ChinookJustice tee shirt, If you make a donation, please remind us about your shirt (while supplies last).

Here is more on the project:

Beginning June 8, a letter a day will be mailed through the U.S. Post Office to President Obama and also to former President Bill Clinton, under whose presidency we were officially federally recognized in 2001.

In an outrageous example of the abuses perpetuated against our community, that life changing 2001 recognition was taken away eighteen months later by the administration of President George W. Bush.

Our appeal will include daily supplemental materials to both educate our audience and illustrate the unbelievable nature of our Nation not being counted amongst the other 566 Tribes recognized by the Federal Government. In addition to mailing these letters to President Obama and former President Clinton, we will post the letters to the web page http://www.chinooknation.org/letter.html

“The Chinook Indian Nation has demonstrated extraordinary patience in our long fight to clarify our status,” said Chinook Council Member, Gary Johnson. “Despite a willingness to give up virtually everything that was ours, the 1851 treaties that we signed were not ratified by the US Senate. A long history of broken promises has followed. One hundred sixty four years is long enough.”

“Our teachings say it takes as long to fix a problem as it took to make it. Let 2015 be the year that we can begin our long road to recovery,” he said. “No more of our members should be allowed to die while being denied their inheritance.”

“We only seek what evidence and common sense say is right,” Johnson said.Justice Project
