A.I.M. for Peace

I am back at Camp Casey II for one last blog entry before heading back to Dallas/Fort Worth. I arrived just in time for a ceremony in which Dennis Banks, Viola Hatch, and other leaders of the American Indian Movement presented Cindy Sheehan with two ceremonial shawls and an eagle feather to commemorate the fallen hero Casey Sheehan.

The folks up on the stage represented Anishinabe, Cheyenne, Arapaho, and Mojave. Cindy Sheehan added that "Sheehan" is the Gaelic word for "peace," to which I will add a little bit of Lakota: "Hecel lena oyate kin nipi kte," long may our people live.

Right now, though, it's time for "long may my rent-car drive."
