Native American Indian Rights | John Echohawk, Pawnee
EMBEZZLEMENT is the fraudulent appropriation by a person to his or her own use of property or money entrusted to that person’s care but owned by someone else. This is all it is – blatant theft that continues to go on day after day after day. Now, if these CRIMES were committed by anyone else – other than the US government – they’d be doing time.
John Echohawk is a Pawnee Native American and he’s also an attorney. Aside from that, he’s a hero and a leader.

Attorney: Walter Echo-Hawk
NARF is participating in the historic birth of a tribal college. Walter Echo-Hawk is serving on the Board of Trustees of the Pawnee Nation Academy. During its first year of operation, in which twenty-one courses were offered to 99 enrolled students, NARF assisted the College in developing a fund-raising strategy and in securing pro bono counsel to obtain 501(c)(3) non-profit status for the new college. As the second year commences, the college is focusing on completing work necessary to obtain accreditation and it continues fund-raising efforts for that purpose.
