Statement from the Family of
Annie Mae Pictou Aquash

February 22, 2005

Finally after 29 years of waiting for justice to come for their murdered family member, the family of Annie Mae Pictou Aquash will hear in a court of law what happened to their mother and sister.

The B.C. Supreme court's decision to extradite John Graham, a.k.a. John Boy Patton, the man charged with firing the fatal shot that took Annie Mae's life, sent a sigh of relief and hope amongst her family, friends and supporters who have waited 29 years to hear that their family member's life mattered.

We are pleased that the B.C. Department of Justice believes that the vicious violent murder of this Canadian woman, activist, sister and mother, profiled in the National Sisters in Spirit Campaign, does matter and needs to be addressed in a court of law.

John Graham has repeatedly stated that he was with Annie Mae Pictou Aquash shortly before her death. His co-accused Arlo Looking Cloud, who has since been found guilty and sentenced to life, has named Graham as the triggerman. Here is an opportunity for John Graham to tell his side of the story in a court of law and answer to his knowledge and involvement in the death of Annie Mae Pictou Aquash.

...In the Spirit of our Mother and Sister
