June 2005 Actions


Help Tucson Do No Harm
Protest Wingspan's Contribution to the Exploitation
of Native American Spiritual Practices!

A local lesbian will be conducting sweat lodge ceremonies for men on June 11, 2005 and for women on June 25, 2005.

June 25th Womenís Sweat

June 11th Menís Sweat

June 11, 2005, 3:00 - 5:00 pm

Ms. Istan was contacted and asked what proof she had that she was entitled to conduct such ceremonies. As of June 10, 2005 she has not responded to our request.

We plan to protest the event.

It is scheduled for:
June 11, 2005 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
and again on June 25, 2005 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm
The address is:
