The law is really tearing us apart, tearing us away from our land. [Nancy Walters, in Osawa 1988; emphasis added] I was born right here, and we are not going to move one inch. They'll have to jail me first. If they want to build me a home, they can build it right here. I was born and raised here, my cord is here. . . . I don't want to live any place but here. [Blanche Wilson, quoted in Kammer 1980: 197-198; emphasis added].
