Summary "Bruce Clark believes that the North American legal system has led to the genocide of indigenous people who embrace traditional religion and identity and that those who administer the system have abandoned the rule of law. To defend his beliefs, Clark gave up material wealth - a big home on a lake and an airplane - to finance his fight. He and his family lived on Indian reservations during his battle in North American courts and, in Europe, lived in squats while he argued his case before the World Court. No longer able to practice law, Clark has now been adopted by the Mohicans and together they are fighting for the Hudson River drainage basin and Liberty Island - site of the world's most potent symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty."--Jacket.
