UPDATE ON D-Q UNIVERSITY TALKING CIRCLE IN ESPARTO, CALIFORNIA

To our Brothers and Sisters Everywhere: The gathering was a resounding success. Many people came, and the large meeting room at the Esaprto Library was filled to capacity. For over two and a half hours, twelve leaders from the regional Indigenous community spoke out regarding the past, present, and future of D-Q University.
Sponsored by the United Native Americans group and Dr. Noel Boaz, the event was titled "A NEW DAWN AT D-Q UNIVERSITY."
The gathering served as a focal point for people to talk about the happenings currently swirling around "California's only Tribal College," -D-Q University. Most of the presenters spoke about: the history of the people's struggle: where D-Q University stands at the present time, politically, spiritually, and educationally: the details surrounding the Land and Leadership Controversy at the school, the meaning of the great Eagle and Condor Prophecy: and the importance of getting D-Q University back on its feet again. There were a few representatives of D-Q University's very corrupt (and illegal) "board of trustees" present at yesterday's Talking Circle, Many of us thought that their presence there was incredibly lame and hypocritical of them, -seeing as how it was the board of trustees who refused to allow the Talking Circle -and the National M.E.Ch.A. Conference, to take place at D-Q University in the very recent past. (This was how yesterday's event came to be re-scheduled at the Library in Esparto.)
Even though they were physically present at the Talking Circle, the "board of trustees" and its' representatives did not speak one word to the people in the audience.
The lone board member who appeared at the talking circle yesterday just sat in the back of the room and remained silent. Which was perfectly fine with us; -no one really wanted to listen to any more of the board of trustees' lies, anyway.
The meeting ended with a renewed pledge by the events' organizers and the people in the audience to do everything they (we) can in the future, to work in a legal, peaceful, way to remove the failed leadership of D-Q University -in the form of the present board of trustees, from office.
This is the end of the Unofficial Update.
Take care of yourselves, but most importantly of all, Take Care of The People.
And remember always that: THE REAL D-Q WILL NEVER DIE And having said all that we would, we will be leaving you -for now. We are this Nation,
Steve Jerome-Wyatt,
Acknowledged Spokesman
