Steven Newcomb (Shawnee-Lenape) has carried on a global campaign since 1992 with Birgil Kills Straight, a Traditional Headman and Elder of the Oglala Lakota Nation, challenging imperial Vatican documents from the fifteenth century. Those documents resulted in the decimation of Original Nations and Peoples of Mother Earth and thereby deprived the planet of life-ways, sustainable ecosystems, and Sacred Teachings.
