SOVEREIGNTY RUN DRAWS CLOSER TO WASHINGTON, D.C.
NUMBER OF PARTICIPATING AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBES GROWS
AS SOVEREIGNTY RUN DRAWS CLOSER TO WASHINGTON, D.C.
TRIBES RALLYING MONDAY, OCT. 7 AT 10 A.M. AT U.S. SUPREME COURT STEPS IN
SUPPORT OF TRIBAL SOVEREIGNTY – TRIBES’ RIGHT TO SELF GOVERNANCE
(Washington, D.C.) The number of American Indian Tribes and Alaska Native
nations -- including Native Hawaiians and one Canada First Nation -- that
have been participating in an historic 2,800-mile cross-country
coast-to-coast relay run which began approximately one month ago on the
Quinault Indian Reservation in Washington state continues to grow as the
runners get closer to Maryland and Washington, D.C. The run ends Oct. 7 at
the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., with a rally in
support of Tribes’ right to self governance. The rally begins at 10 a.m.
The U.S. Supreme Court is the site of a number of devastating court
decisions that have been delivered against tribes over the past two decades.
These decisions, made by the highest court in the land, are responsible for
the continued erosion of tribal sovereignty. Oct. 7 also is the first day of
the Court’s 2003 term.
Majority Leader Thomas Daschle (D-SD) also will be participating in the last
leg of the run from Washington National Cathedral to the Supreme Court
Steps. Media are invited to interview him and NCAI President Tex G. Hall
beginning at 9:15 a.m. at the Supreme Court steps.

The 'Sovereignty Run' is part of a larger program called the Tribal
Governance and Economic Enhancement Initiative, also known as the
Sovereignty Protection Initiative. The Initiative, launched in September
2001, is a coordinated all-tribal strategy designed to address the
increasing diminishment of tribal self-government and jurisdiction as a
result of recent Supreme Court rulings, such as Nevada vs. Hicks and
Atkinson Trading Co. v. Shirley – decisions that have raised strong concerns
among tribes that the Supreme Court is on an accelerating trend over the
past 20 years toward removing tribal jurisdiction within tribal territories.
The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), the Navajo Nation and
prominent American Indian tribal leaders are spearheading the Initiative.
