Dear Friends, Supporters and Family,
It was a sad day on Saturday when I had to tell Leonard that his friend and sister Wanda Siers and her four grandchildren: Janae, Jeremy, Winyan, and Mato Little were killed in a car accident at Red Shirt Table, on Pine Ridge Friday night/Saturday morning.
Leonard replied, “O My God, please send my condolences, her grandchildren also? Wow what a huge loss, see what we can contribute to the wake. Let people know she was a descendant of the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre and survivor of the 1973 Wounded Knee Resistance. She, along with others, were offered bribes by the FBI to turn snitch and traitor against the Oglala Nation and when this didn’t work with the Strong Hearted Women, they tried to threaten their families lives and freedom. These are my True Real Heroes.
Please ask our supporters to help with their funeral expenses as if it were my funeral. What a loss, I am so saddened that I can’t be there to stand with her family as she and the little ones are laid to rest.”
I have included the webpage to help support the Siers-Little family in this tragic time.
As representatives for the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee, we also send our deepest regrets and condolences.
Paulette and Kari Ann
