  • Moonanum James, Aquinnah Wampanoag, activist and organizer for United American Indians of New England (UAINE.org)
  • Mahtowin Munro, Lakota, activist and organizer for UAINE

  • Lone Eagless, Mashpee Wampanoag (see Wampanoag history)

  • Teresa Gutierrez, Chicana re Mumia Abu-Jamal
  • Dr. Bert Waters, Assonet Wampanoag from Mass. Commission of Indian Affairs, reading a statement from Leonard Peltier
