Shaman 2

Shaman 2 is one of my favorite modern Native American music CD's. This CD has music from many people including John Trudell , Karen Therese, Joseph Fire Crow, Walela, Joanne Shenandoah, Lawrence Laughing, December Wind, Medicine Dream, Andrew Vasquez. This CD provides a great human rights message with wonderful music from number of different music artists. I bought this CD a little while ago and not I can not find any additional information. If any one knows why you this cd is no longer offered please let me know.

The CD booklet from the CD states the following " This CD is dedicated to Tate Wikuwa, also known as Lenard Peltier, the Native American human rights and ecological activist, member of the American Indian Movement. In a trial, which was called a disgrace for the American legal system by the former general attorney Ramsey Clark, he was falsely accused of murdering two FBI agents and sentenced to two terms of life imprisonment in 1976. LEONARD PELTIER IS INNOCENT! But the government wanted to brand him as a criminal and through him the Native American civil rights organization AIM. Their "crime": to protest against the ongoing land-robbery and constant human rights violations committed by the US-government, the FBI and the mining-companies in the reservations of South Dakota. At that time those companies tried by all means to lay their hands on the mineral resources (mainly uranium) of the Native American territory. As a consequence of the uranium mining activities the drinking water was poisoned and the death rate among the Native Americans rose dramatically. Leonard Peltier, a Lokota-Ojibway Native American, is a symbol for the justified struggle of his people and itís suffering. The vision of this man, unbroken to this day, is justice, a considerate relation towards Mother Earth and a peaceful co-existence of "the white man and the red man" through a revival of Native American culture and traditions. This CD shall carry his message into the world and help Leonard Peltier to finally obtain the right to spend the remainder of his life in freedom, instead of suffering the unspeakable injustice, he has endured until not, up to the year 2041! Under US law he can be freed only by presidential pardon. Countless people have already stood up for his release, amongst them well known personalities as Mother Theresa, Robert Redford, Nelson Mandela, H.H. Dalai Lama, Harry Belafonta, Richard V. Weizacker, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Oliver Shanti and many others.
