Indians protest library artifacts

News From Worcester, MA where protesting the continued custody by the Barre Library Association of artifacts deemed to be sacred Oglala Sioux relics brought blankets and lawn chairs, picnic baskets and coolers.

If the atmosphere seemed somewhat festive, the goals and intent of the protest organizers – representatives from several Eastern American Indian tribes and Rebecca Three Stars, a fifth-generation Oglala Sioux from the Pine Ridge Reservation – was anything but.
