18 Years of Solitary Confinement is Enough! If you heap the harshest possible punishment on the negotiators, what incentive will there be to negotiate during the next uprising?

878 Coitsville-Hubbard Rd., Youngstown, OH
On April 10, 1883, The U.S. Secretary of the Interior forbid Native Americans from practicing their religious practices and customs, such as Sun Dances, claiming they were “un-American.”
