To our readers:
For years, Paul and
I have shared "Canku Ota" with you, at no charge.
One of the reasons that we discontinued the site was because
of the lack of funds. To date, we've received no funding for
our work, either. But, we now have a dilemma, and we need
your help. Without going into boring details, we'll just say
that our financial circumstances have changed. So, we have
several options and need your help.
Here they are:
1. Make "Canku Ota"
available only through paid subscriptions.
2. Accept donations from our readers.
3. Discontinue "Canku Ota."
We want to provide
this service free of charge and would like to depend solely
on donations from you, in order to meet our expenses. This
will allow us to remain independent without any pressure to
modify our site to please funding sources. If you find "Canku
Ota" to be a valuable source of information and want
our efforts to continue, and continue to expand, then please
donate what you can to insure that we have the funds necessary
to continue to provide you with good news from Indian Country.
In the month of April,
we had over 20,000 visitors. Imagine if even half of you donated
$.50...that's Fifty Cents...
Frankly, we would prefer
to keep things as they are. But, providing a service, like
ours, takes time and money. And, we would like to be able
to compensate some of the generous folks who share stories
and articles with you.
Paul and I will be
setting up a PayPal account, for your convenience. If you
prefer to send donations directly, please email me and I will
give you the address.
Vicki and Paul
