Sam Morris of the Red Cliff Band was arrested for drumming a prayer in the Wisconsin state capitol just after noon today. He was escorted out of the building by Capitol Police officers and was issued a $260 ticket for disorderly conduct. Tribal attorney Glenn Stoddard was nearby and attempted to assist Mr. Morris, but was bodily pushed away by an officer. Art “Little Big Man” Sheggone of the Potawatomi Tribe, and Will Williams, a well known Veterans for Peace Activist were also on hand to offer support to Mr. Morris.
