Document:Letter from Tommy Thompson to Jasper Elliott, Superintendent, Warm Springs Reservation
Oct. 31, 1946
Mr. Elliott -
So much trouble at hand, but I got to fight for freedom of what belongs to me and all Indians in the nation throughout the world. We were robbed out of everything. But, I am going to cling to my fishing industry ö I am not quitting on closed season, for I know I live here year round. All I got is salmon to live on. I don't want this dam project either. There are lots of other rivers, streams for dams.
