      Boycott Re: Sitting Bull Ad

      This letter is to inform the Native Community about the Boycott
      against the

      Newtimes Company and its Affiliates. Here's a list of the Newtimes

      Newspapers...

      The Cleveland Scene
      San Francisco Weekly
      Denver Westworld
      Broward County Florida New Times
      Phoenix New Times
      Kansas City The Pitch
      Oakland East Bay Express
      Houston Press
      Dallas Observer
      Miami New Times
      St Louis River Front Times

      On Feb. 12, 2003 the Cleveland Scene Newspaper printed an ad
      featuring

      Chief Sitting Bull. The ad read "Sitting Bull smoked marijuana. He
      lived in a

      tent with no cable. Then the US Government killed him. Harmless?

      Partnership for a Drug Free America*".

      The PDFA Association had nothing to do with the ad and their
      Attorneys

      contacted the Cleveland Scene and sent a Cease-and-Desist letter.

      When the Newtimes people were contacted informing them of the
      Boycott,

      one of their employees, a Technical Specialist named Chris Chattom,

      responded with more Insults and Defamation of Character.

      Please share this information with your fellow Natives. There is a
      web site

      with the letters from Chris Chattom, the PDFA and the ad picture at -


      http://www.geocities.com/natives_gotta_know/natives_gotta_know.html

      If you can take the time you view the site I am sure you will
      understand better

      the serious nature of this Boycott.

      Please help support this Boycott until the Newtimes People Publicly

      apologize for degrading such a Great Leader!

      Thank you for your time,
