Did you know that in 1982 . . .

NARF initiated the Planned Giving program, which offered information to donors who considered making a substantial contribution to the Native American Rights Fund, especially through a will. NARF’s first Planned Giving Coordinator was Marilyn Pourier of the Oglala Lakota Tribe.  Please see page 3 of the Winter 1982 Announcements for more information.

NARF added three new Staff Attorneys to the Boulder office—Scott McElroy, Jeanette Wolfley, and Jerome Kim Gottschalk—and added three new National Support Committee members as well.  Please see page 5 of the Winter 1982 Announcements for more information.

The Pamunkey Tribe contributed $10,000 to NARF.  Pamunkey Chief Tecumseh Cook stated: “NARF’s work has had a tremendous impact on Indian rights all over the country and we hope this will continue”.  Please see page 6 of the Winter 1982 Announcements for more information.
