Deborah Root, “The Fight for the Land: An Interview with Chief Gary Potts”:

“It seems that the government has a tendency to present Native activists as criminals and/or terrorists. For instance, last February the Native Council on Justice said (about Milton Born with a Tooth): ‘The protection of mother earth is essential for all Aboriginal people… The political action undertaken by Aboriginal people in the protection of their traditional homelands has consistently been reduced to a series of criminal charges where individual Aboriginal people are incarcerated and silenced.’ We saw this criminalization of land rights activities with respect to the Mohawk people as well. How can we work to counter this both in the courts and with respect to giving the public at large the other side of the story?” (158)
