PETITION TO SAVE THE SANTA FE INDIAN SCHOOL PAOLO SOLERI AMPHITHEATER



To:


The Honorable Chairman Joe Garciaand

The Governorsof the All Indian Pueblo Council


Everett Chavez, Superintendent, The Santa Fe Indian School


The Honorable Senator Jeff Bingaman


The Honorable Senator Tom Udall


Supporters worldwide of the Santa Fe Indian School Paolo Soleri Amphitheater are overjoyed with the recent offer of help extended to Santa Fe Indian School by Senators Udall and Bingaman. We are equally delighted with the positive response released July 19 by Superintendent Everett Chavez of the Santa Fe Indian School.

We urge the Santa Fe Indian School, Pueblo Governors and the Senators to now join together and develop a plan for the Amphitheater's preservation. We understand that the School's sovereignty is paramount, that its educational mission is admirable and that its management and maintenance concerns are legitimate. We believe all these issues can be resolved. Many among us have ideas and suggestions for the Amphitheater's future but can only now offer advocacy because there is no structure within which to proceed.


We respectfully request that you, our leaders, move immediately to establish a framework within which to work out the architectural, financial and managerial components of the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater's long, productive and joyful future.Essential is funding for the over $4.5 million in upgrades the Amphitheater requires, as well as an endowment for its operating costs.


Supporters of the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater at the Santa Fe Indian School.

Some signers have been confused that the donation is for this cause, which it is not.The solicitation is from the application site, and your response is voluntary. Your are under no obligation.
