The Chinook Executive Justice Recognition Project in the Press

On June 8, 2015 the Chinook Indian Nation began a direct appeal to the President of the United States, asking for executive action to right the wrongs that continue to be perpetuated on our historically important Indian Nation.

A letter a day has been mailed through the U.S. Post Office to President Obama and also to former President Bill Clinton, under whose presidency we were officially federally recognized in 2001.
