Frequent PB commenter Fred notes a wiki interview with Canupa Gluha Mani (aka Duane Martin) of the Lakota Freedom Delegation (he cut up his drivers license at the press conference to announce the delegation's withdrawal from the United States), as well as a radio interview from last month in which he says many of the usual things--that American Indians' problems are all the fault of colonialism, that genocide is ongoing, that if Indians were just left alone by European death-culture everything would be hunky-dory, etc. Mani also downplays rumors of a split between him and Republic of Lakotah "Chief Facilitator" Russell Means, and uses the word "exonerated" peculiarly.

Update: Yesterday's scheduled interview with Ward Churchill on the University of Winnipeg's campus radio station was postponed by a power outage. They're trying to reschedule the "highly anticipated" segment.

Update II: CU's Silver & Gold Record has the latest "top ten stories of 2007" list in history, and Ward Churchill's firing is only number two--the top story is CU's settlement of suits by two women who were sexually assaulted at an off-campus party attended by CU football recruits and players.
