Your story on Jesus Leon Santos (“Native environmental hero, Jesus Leon Santos” [Vol. 28, Iss. 8] is most heartening, elevating the spirit for anyone whose life is in The Way of the Earth and her healing. The work of this man and his people is simply awesome. We mustn’t wait for governments, groups or committees!

I am a white woman who regularly buys and reads Indian Country Today from cover to cover. The order of priorities and the quality of investigation and writing are outstanding. Thank you for existing, and for the incredible work of all your reporters and photographers.
