In STAND UP FOR YOUR PEOPLE, Grey Bear screams for help to fight an oppressive prison system: GEO Group, a for-profit-prison, and the Arizona Department of Corrections, as well as others across the nation that squeeze the life out of Native American religious rights and freedoms. He releases a battle cry to gather warriors in a fight for incarcerated Native Americans. His people are very much in need of help from those in the community to provide essentials for their spiritual quests, such a firewood to use in sweat lodge ceremonies, and visitors from outside to share their path to their Creator. Without the firewood that the prison administration refuses to provide, the Native Americans cannot use the sweat lodge to practice their beliefs at the prison.

The book is somewhat of an autobiography and a self-help guide for Native Americans who want to walk the Red Road. It contains legal references and a variety of source materials to support his position. A great book to send as a gift to Native Americans trapped inside the hundreds of oppressive prisons throughout the United States.
