The prison chaplain has shut down our Indian group. Stating that we are getting too political. On August 11th, 1992, he called the squad to the chapel, and they surrounded all of the Indians, and asked us to leave the area. Our "Indian" rep from Olympia won't do anything, but agree with what the prison administrators say to him. His name was Ben Stiffarm. I have a "bunch" of correspondence out on this issue. And, am waiting to hear something from anyone of them.

This prison is getting worse and worse. There's nothing but a "bunch" of youngsters here now. And, it's still really overcrowded. They've been having fights left and right. A lot of people [are] going to [the] "hole" for fighting...In the last month, there's been 10 fights or so, and three rapes, and one stabbing. I have to laugh on how they keep the officers real busy running all over the place. The officers are not in good condition either, always running out of wind before they get to their area.
