On Sunday, February 24th, Chief Billy "Red Wing" Tayac of the Piscataway Nation spoke at the University of Virginia at an event sponsored by the Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice (CCPJ), the American Indian Student Union, the National Native American Law Student Association, and the Office of the Dean of Students of UVA.

Chief Tayac has been an Indian activist for several decades, participating in many indigenous struggles, including Wounded Knee, Gankineh, Big Mountain, OK'a, Gustafson Lake, and the Salvadorian Indian and Ecuadorian Indian Movements. Chief Billy Tayac is currently working to assist Spanish speaking Indians who are suffering a new era of economic invasion resulting from NAFTA and the unregulated practices of many multinational corporations based in the United States. Once again Indian people are being forced off their land.

CCPJ produced a video of Chief Tayac's remarks: 3GP VIDEO.
