A Lisa, a chara
 
Ta/ an ceart agat.  Is mo/r an trua nach bhfuil mo/ra/n meas ag an rialtas
leis na dualgais faoi chonradh.  Le/igh me/ fhe/in an t-alt seo.  Bhi/
gan chiall agus meas na daoine leis an rialtas a rinne briste na dualgais
faoi chonradh.  Is e/ an stair an ti/r seo go bhfuair an rialtas cuid
den talamh speisi/alta le cleas agus caint gan fi/rinne.  Is cosu/ila le
mar a chuirfa/ "casino" agus rudai/ eile ar eaglais.  Ach, anois, si/leann
an rialtas nach leis na Sioux an cuid den talamh speisi/alta.  Bi/onn an
fadbh seo le gach tribhe ar feadh an ti/r seo.  Cuir se i gcuimhne liom i
dtaobh sce/al cosu/il i gKansas.  Ba mhaith leis an rialtas Kansas agus
Lawrence 'bypass highway' timpeall Lawrence.  Ach bhi/ chuid den talamh
speisi/alta leis an Ollscoil Haskell do na mic le/inn ann.  Du/irt an
rialtas is cuma leo.  Agus ni/l aon meas acu leis aon talamh speisi/alta,
is mo/r an trua.  Ag an am che/anna bi/onn daoine 'wasicu', a bhfuil spe/is
mo/r acu a bheith i a Sioux no/ Osage no/ Cherokee, no/ tri/bh eile.  Ni/
raibh urraim do rud ar bith acu. Tho/gfadh siad den chuid reiligiu/n
speisi/alta as na tri/bhanna.  Ba mhaith leo cuing chra/bhaidh a
ghabha/il.  Ach, ni/ thuigeann siad gur bo/thar na bheatha (way of life)
e/.  Tho/gfadh an rialtas chuid den talamh speisi/alta agus tho/gfadh
na daoine "wannabes" an creideamh na tri/bhanna.  Ach ta/ su/il agam
leis an thodachi/.  Ba mhaith linn umhlai/ocht don dli/ (i dtaobh
talamh speisi/alta) agus an creideamh na tri/bhanna.
 
Mar ata/ me/ ag obair, ni/l mo/ra/n am agam a scri/obh anois.  Ach ba
mhaith liom sce/al i dtaobh an Kansa a thabhairt daoibh.  Mar a fheacainn
tu/, le Jeff agus mise.  Bi/onn daoine nach bhfuil sna tri/bhanna ata/
meas mo/r acu leo agus ta/ mo/ra/n chairde ata/ sna tri/bhanna.  Ta/imid
ag ra/ na/ bi/ ro/-criticu/il le na daoine Jeff agus Mise ata/ a fhios
againn go mo/r i gceist na fadhbanna leis an ti/r seo .  Tar anseo,
abair linn, siu/il linn agus gheobhaidh muid a/r cuid meas agus eolas.
 
beannachtai/ chugat, Lisa agus do chairde

  go bhfuil tu/ a/balta mo chuid Gaeilge a thuiscint)
