This charity if 100% fraud. It has never been a charity, instead it is the sole income of the person who runs it. She takes all the money and lives off of it. She talks a very good con and weaves so much into it that you think it must be legitimate. It is not. She lives on National Forest land and conspired with one of the Rangers to get the property for $1. It is all fraud. She has been reported to the IRS. The Ranger has been reported to the head of the Forest Service. This is written by one person, however, there are more than 300+ people who know the facts. She cannot be trusted. She has never fulfilled any of the commitments listed. She has stolen from one charity to give to another. She has lied to every grant funding institution and because the dollar amounts are not high enough to catch the eye of the IRS or large institutions she sails through because they think they are helping an Indian. Don't fall for it. Do not give any money or time. She has recruited the Girl Scouts and many others who come and work on her house thinking they are helping an organization. It is nothing but one person ripping off the public for many years. She has been physically removed from two other homes in the same forest, but caught the eye of one Ranger and has had her way with him and getting everything she wants. It is breaking local, state and federal laws. They will both pay the price soon.

I have personally seen the slide show of the recent "Forest Recovery Project" and was really amazed at the information contained in the slide show. To the best of my knowledge this the first time we can actually view reforestation in time lapse photos after a devastating forest fire. The education provided by this project is endless to both the Forest Service and educators in this field. This project could also provide information regarding the role fire plays in this ecosystem.

I have seen the selfless good works of Corina Roberts in action. She is one of the few people I have met who really go without to help others or promote knowledge. She asks nothing for herself.

I have had the opportunity to volunteer and participate both with Redbird's toy drive and ongoing forest recovery project. Corina's passion in her work lends the description; inspirational, ferocious, and triumphant.

Admiration for Redbird extends beyond conviction of purpose, but to the positive effect Corina's spirit has on others. It is the smile on everyone's face as Corina interacts with them which is a testament to that spirit.



My first opportunity to attend one of Corina's forest recovery presentations left me in awe in terms of the story she tells of the forest's miraculous recovery through her photography.



And in regards to the toy drive I had the privilege to attend, the magnitude of the generosity of donations again is a testament to the nature and spirit Corina brings forth.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in sharing the pride when Corina's work and efforts are recognized. There is something to be said about intrinsic experience, because it is not so easily recognized.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would like to see Corina accept the gifts and offerings of assistance with less reticence, and to have Corina realize she needn't do everything on her own.

RedBird PowWow , The Powwow it very inspirational, The location is in an open field, drummers,dancers and the MC's is very traditional. The only thing I would change is that the MC give more information on the different dancers, Many Non-native are in the audience. The arena dicterctor should also stress the blessing of the circle.
