The Saga of Norma Jean--The story of Norma Jean's arrest and the years of imprisonment that followed for her.
Resolution of the International Indigenous People's Conference, Ft. Snelling, MN, 1993--Unanimously supported an Executive pardon for Norma Jean.
NEWS from Norma Jean's Defense Committee--Federal Hearing Upcoming; Letters and Petitions wanted.
Can't Jail the Spirit--A prisoners' Rights page, with main focus on political prisoners. This is a list with addresses where you can write to them. I found Norma Jean Croy, but not Leonard Peltier on this list and wrote the Webmaster asking why.
Computer Error--This is how I found out Norma Jean was still in prison. I've written to her, and called her defense committee. An update is posted here; more will be added..
California's Hidden History of Genocide--Material involving Norma Jean's tribe and others, gathered by defense investigators and used at Hooty's trial to establish the prevailing conditions under which Hooty's action was reasonable self-defense.
Norma Jean was denied parole in 1990 just after Hooty's 2nd trial acquittal, at which his trial judge said she would have been acquitted if she could have been retried and the parole board should consider this new evidence.
WRITE TO NORMA JEAN! Tell her about today's world. Nothing can cheer a forgotten prisoner more than to realize that the entire world has not forgotten her! You cannot send her email of course. Here's her prison address (be sure to use her prisoner number):
Do not omit her prisoner number. Norma Jean, like all prisoners, needs small amounts of cash in prison. \She tries to participate in an art group, but must buy suopplies herself. You can send a money order in letters to her; this is taken by the prison authorities who open all mail, and credited to her account she can use for small prison purchases. You cannot send objects or books.
Her lawyer Diana Samuelson (and defense committee) phone number in San Francisco is:
This is also the address of Norma Jean's Defence Committee, where there is literature and a videotape for sale (I wasn't told its price).

CREDITS: The picture of Norma Jean was taken by B. Zambrano at an unknown date, in 1990 or before. It was used in the 1991Indigenous Woman story about Norma Jean. I scanned it, reduced it to her head, and endeavored to clean up the moirè (spotty) pattern that results from scanning a printed photo.
Page prepared by Paula Giese copyright 1995. Because of the desirability of spreading the word as far as possible, page Webmistresses (or -masters) may download text and graphics for their own pages, rather than linking to here, if they wish. Any doing so should notify me, and Norma Jean, via her defense committee/attorney's snail-mail address.. I would also like to know about any links to this page.
