June 10, 1969: We think it is high time that the law-enforcement agencies of New Mexico put a stop to Reies Tijerina’s taking the law into his own hands and threatening state and federal officials with “citizen’s arrests.”

Viarrial, who went 21 days without solid food to protest Gov. Bruce King’s position on Indian gaming, said Thursday he will keep working against King’s re-election.
He said that could include active involvement by the pueblo in the campaign of Republican nominee Gary Johnson, who has said he would sign tribal-state compacts legalizing Indian gaming.
