I am not interested in getting into any arguments regarding Peltier, I know the truth thru the exchanges I have shared with him, his cousin Robideau and others who have known him outside and inside the penn.
Leonard knows exactly what I know, and like a coward still refuses to have a conversation with me regarding my mother.
His silence speaks volumes to us.
The fact remains he shoved a gun into my mother’s mouth and interrogated her for being an informant.
Thankfully she shared her experiences with our family when we saw her last when we begged her not to go back to SD months before her execution.
Leonard bragged to my mother about shooting one of the agents while he begged for his life.
Leonard denied our family help stating he would not ” participate in incarcerating another Indian Man”.
He currently publically supports AIM member Graham who was just convicted of murdering Annie Mae in Dec. 2010. Robideau argued with Leonard about his choice to support Graham and told him” he would go down with Graham for that decision” and in frustration Robideau resigned several times, struggling with the truth and Leonard’s decision. Leonard needed to support his AIM brothers in their support of Graham knowing that Graham would be able to name the other individuals present at the house where the decision was made to execute Annie Mae.
For 28 years our family has sat and waited for justice and not once did Leonard nor the AIM leadership contact our family to offer assistance, yet they had no problem using my mother’s image, quotes and murder as their platform to profile their injustices.
Does anyone else see this as strange?
When the names of AIM members and Leonard began to be whispered in NDN country regarding my mother’s kidnapping, interrogation and murder and indictments were issue, then and only then, did Peltier make a feeble attempt to contact us by writing a letter, unaware I had already contacted Robideau and several others independently to reconfirm the gun in the mouth interrogation and other info being whispered in our communities. When I asked Robideau about what had happened in Oglala and if in fact Leonard had shot those agents, he paused for several seconds and said he “I can’t answer that I am Leonards first cousin !”.
When I then asked him if he had shot at the agents he immediately answered I fired my gun in self defense .
I have read comments recently where LP supporters and others have asked whether individuals are Native or not, when addressing facts being shared on several Facebook walls.
A strange question considering at least a third of AIM and LPDC supporters are non NDN.
I did not think it was a requirement to be NDN to fight for justice and demand the truth?
I have seen defamatory accusations and name calling like racist, divisionary , FBI/ CIA, propaganda, liable, cointel pro, family against family, and personal vendettas, yet not once did I read any facts or information to contradict the facts being shared here.
Let me remind you all that those were the exact comments and accusation made to my mother before Leonard Peltier shoved that gun into her mouth, and AIM members marched her off to her death.
People can argue all they want on whether Peltier got a fair trial or not, the facts remain that if he were to be retried again not only would he remain where he is for his participation in the shootout, but also be charged with conspiracy for his knowledge and participation in the murder of Annie Mae.
He has lied to us and he has lied to his supporters.
If people can’t see the obvious in Leonard’s knowledge and involvement in my mother’s murder, then they need to recheck what the definition of truth and justice is in their lives.
Otherwise they do nothing but support the hypocrisy and lies that AIM and LPDC are beginning to represent.
And, don’t fool yourselves into thinking they are not synonymous, Leonard has always supported AIM and AIM had always supported Leonard.
SO trying to make a distinction that they are two separate entities when it comes to the murder of Annie Mae , and Perry Ray Robinson fools no one but yourselves.
This is an ugly truth and to deny it then makes you no supporter of aid in the defense of the women suffering in our own comminutes today , in fact you have now become the enablers.

Supporting & enabling AIM murderers, rapists, pedofiles, liars, thieves & media manipulators is where the problem lies with the truth becoming self-evident…
People would rather embrace a lie, than to educate themselves of the truth, which clearly shows all those whom chooses to embrace the evil of AIM & enable that evil, is as evil as AIM is itself…
