On the Passing of Standing Deer
January 21, 2003

Dear Friends:

Late yesterday afternoon the LPDC was informed of the death of Robert
Standing Deer Wilson. As many of you know, Standing Deer was a close friend
and brother to Leonard Peltier for the past 25 years.

He had long been a vocal supporter for Leonard, and in the past year
assisted in organizing Houston events and radio programs dedicated to
Leonard's freedom. More recently, Standing Deer joined the LPDC's Board of
Directors and was an active member. The LPDC is saddened and greatly
regrets his passing. More information will be forthcoming as details are

In Solidarity,
