Aug 29, 2013, Los Angeles, Wild for Life Foundation announces the release of a startling new report exposing the distribution of misinformation provided to American Indians by the USDA. The well substantiated report entitled, “In Truth of Wild Horses on Native Lands and Tongue” reveals evidence of meetings held by the USDA with unsuspecting tribal leaders for the purpose of getting tribal people to distribute ‘misinformation’ about horse slaughter and the removal of America’s wild horses to their congressional delegations.
“The data regarding horse slaughter and the wild horses as provided by the USDA APHIS has been grossly misrepresented to American tribes and the falsifications are stacked one on top of the other,” says Katia Louise, Director, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES, and president, the Wild for Life Foundation.
U.S. policymakers that may have been swayed by a recent showing of tribal support for horse slaughter may now give reconsideration to their positions on pending legislation such as the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act of 2013, SB541 and HB1094. The SAFE Act is a bill to prevent human health threats posed by the consumption of equines raised in the United States. If passed by both the House and the Senate, this bill will ban horse slaughter in the U.S. as well as shipping horses to other countries to be slaughtered for human consumption.
In Truth of Wild Horses on Native Land and Tongue is authored by Katia Louise, of Sioux descent; the award winning filmmaker of the powerful documentary, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED. The report is published by Wild for Life Foundation and is the first in a series of insights based on facts and findings brought to light through the film.
