I just want to express appreciation for your paper, which I recently discovered at a convenience store here in Prescott, Ariz.

I;m a white man, but I've long been interested in ''the People'' and their struggles. It's good to read something like your paper, to get a real picture of what things are like in Indian country. The average city newspaper really doesn't have a whole lot to say to me personally.

It saddens me often that the Native peoples lost the wars. Things could have been so very different today, and the Earth in balance.

Keep up the good work!
