False image of tribal importance
Karuk tribal member letter regarding Tribes that interrupted Warren Buffet's stockholders' meeting.
"For Pete's Sake! I can't believe so many people are actually listening to Leaf Hillman! He was a foul-mouthed Pot grower, a pretend Shaman, a womanizer and abuser! He never did anything for salmon for the tribe until it became "Profitable" from Enviros! He never attended Tribal Council meetings each month to explain his Natural Resource Department's operations. A tribal councilperson went to Orleans to find out why he failed to show up. He was down by the Klamath River "...wacked out of his gourd on Pot!" The Council member's words, not mine. He has fired other Karuk employees for little things that he didn't like. But, nobody fired him for assault and battery with a deadly weapon, in the presence of children! How come he used Karuk money to bail himself out of jail?
When people begin to listen to Leaf Hillman or Craig Tucker or other loud-mouthed people proclaiming the their children are "...starving because the salmon are all gone!" Don't be suckered in! Karuks, Yuruks, Hupa and other "Indians" all go to Raleys and Safeway just like everybody else!
Makes me angry that these people call themselves Karuk!"
James A. Waddell
Member of the Karuk Tribe
