Founding the oldest Native American investment management firm in the country and a member at the White Earth Chippewa Reservation he's helped Native Americans for 36 years. Raised as a conservative in the color of the great Crow Chief and family friend, Robert Yellow Tail I started my career on Wall Street in 1982. This is my take on financial shenanigans, political chicanery, Native issues and life well lived. No apologies, no status quo. Written from the trading desk in Dallas, Texas.

Letter to President Obama regarding Leonard Peltier
This letter to President Obama was written by Ed Woods.
Ed is a patriot and spokesman for the many FBI agents and LEO's who wanted justice served.
If I may take the liberty to not only speak for myself (former Green Beret and 30-year FBI Agent), but on behalf of all the men and women, past, present and future, who wear the uniform or carried the badge and willingly placed themselves in harms way to serve and protect the lives and property of everyone in this great nation.
We are collectively grateful, and humbled, that you chose not to grant commutation to Leonard Peltier. His brutal attack and murder of two young FBI Agents and his remorseless public statements support that justice should continue as he serves the remainder of his lawful conviction and sentence.
May your post-Presidency years, shared with your family, be rewarding and productive.
[i] To all those who have supported the NPPA and helped champion the cause for justice over the past nearly seventeen years, thank you. Jack Coler and Ron Williams, no doubt, are looking down with gratitude. As the final chapter in the long saga of June 26, 1975 comes to an end, solace can be found in that justice has been served. Little more need be said and the periodic blogs and updates will undoubtedly end, but the No Parole Peltier Association website will remain as an Internet resource for those who are at least concerned about learning the facts and truth.
