A Victory for Equality and Respect

In a historic vote on Wednesday, the Greenfield Town Council voted to approve the Native American Burial Ordinance.   

Submitted by Nolumbeka Project's Howard Clark months ago, shepherded through meeting after meeting by Clark and Nolumbeka Project President Joe Graveline -- and supported by all of you who put in their time and energy to bring about this victory for equality and respect -- we hope this law will serve to protect the Ancestors at White Ash Swamp and prevent any further desecration of Native American burials, reburials and burial sites in Greenfield.

We're thankful to all of you for your support in body and spirit.
