Tribal Letter of Support
Yerington Paiute Tribe

February 1, 2001


United Native America
Mr. Mike Graham

Dear Mr. Graham:

It is my pleasure to provide a letter of support for your efforts to eliminate or disqualify Columbus Day as a federal tax paid holiday and designate a federal holiday for Native Americans. The enclosed copy of page #14 of our personnel policy illustrates that we do not observe Columbus Day, but instead, National Indian Day.

I agree that this should have happened a long time ago and if I can be of further assistance, please call.


Elwood L Emm, Jr.
Tribal Chairman
