This particular case you’re about to read is what started it all. www.OurLandsToo.org used to be a completely different type of website, but when Wild Willpower’s Campaign Organizer, Distance Everheart, continued to become inundated by different scenarios where police officers appeared to be illegally violating her rights using local city codes & state laws, she began doing some research to try to figure out how & why this was happening.
Because she’s been “homeless for humanity” over 12 years now documenting & designing www.WildWillpower.org & the content throughout all of Wild Willpower’s sites, she was faced with a unique position of being in the role of a homeless person in The United States, & n that she began realizing how many homeless people everywhere are having to face having their rights violated nearly every day while having no place to legally “be” AND while having no resources to afford a lawyer for when this type of thing happened.
The below case which is described shows the first time she really took a stand to legally fight back. She had learned some about the law & a few cases she was able to cite, & so when officers approached her this time, she was ready, camcorder in hand. Technically the below case is a case in progress, & is continuing to be developed until she is able to file, soon.
Updates to this case-in-progress are currently being made public via this website & the below links under firsthand accounts by Distance Everheart:
I affirm everything below to be true to the best of my knowledge, & I’m continuing to study & edit as needed until all the facts are in place.
I believe the officers involved with this case to have been doing their job to they best of their knowledge– however proper procedure according to United States Code was not followed, & I am now seeking restitution for civil rights violations, personal injury damages, & also for the damages to the national campaign I’d been developing for many years which was interrupted & now has fallen flat as a direct result of myself needing to shift gears & deal with these arisen legal matters.
All the case evidence- including police footage with personal commentary & testimony- can be found below.
To foreshadow, & for the sake of keeping everything to most benefit for all, I will be seeking for all Public Officials throughout the State of California (& beyond!) to receive in-depth training pertaining to the prioritization of the protection of all peoples’ civil rights, and to re-affirm their Constitutional Oaths in the true original meaning of those Oaths of Office- for the safety & legal benefit of ALL PEOPLE– public official AND civilian.
I will also be seeking some other vast improvements upon the United States judicial system for public benefit- with deep consideration to personal freedoms; I’ve prepared a unique “Letter of Wishes” regarding these changes that will be presented to The Supreme Court of the United States– which can be found at the end of this presentation.

I plan to help others “craft themselves rent-free” as part of a program in-the-making called Cashmere for the Homeless. These designs will help people “gear up” after Wild Willpower’s “Wildharvesting Cooperatives Across America!” campaign gets fixed up & re-launched, with improvements that are still behind the scenes that were never put into place due to the recent interruptions.
I began walking the United States August 7th, 2002 in order to begin writing a rock & roll opera that had begun coming to me that felt of great importance following a series of unique personal experiences, & also to seek a life closer among the wilderness & to “find songs” along the way.
During this quest, I met a dear friend named Richard Lonewolf, who taught me much of what I know today while out among the Mojave Desert & Sequoia National Forest & surrounding areas. He is a Traditional Native American Medicine Man & WIld Skills Expert of the Tsalagi & Lakota nations.
Above: This is the first flier I put together for Lonewolf before building his website at RichardLonewolf.com & also before building WildWillpower.org or any of the project websites. I put together all these websites as foundations to help us orchestrate the campaign with ease.
I also met several of the co-founders of The California Lichen Society as well- including Bill Hill– who has been teaching me the intricate art (science) of “lichen identification” for many years now. He also taught me in-depth knowledge regarding their historical uses, modern conservation efforts, & in general “what they are”. I have since begun developing the first ever “online lichen identification keys” for free on WildLivingSkills.org.
Not only have I invested many years in beginning to build Lonewolf’s website at RichardLonewolf.com & also volunteering alongside The California Lichen Society for several years at public events, but also I’ve been putting together WildWillpower.org & several “project websites” (including this one) to help bring these very impressive “wilderness skillsets”- & other unique sets of hard-to-find knowledge- into a construct that will be made into a very highly-advanced website & smartphone app that may be used to coordinate with forest officials so that all across the United States we may begin bringing wild foods- & much more- from National Forests, Parks, & Seashores, State Parks & Wildlife Preserves- & other public spaces- to markets using ecologically-restorative “Positive-Impact harvesting Techniques“.
Above: One of the first graphics I put together for WildLivingSkills.org, which is being designed to help communities better coordinate with forest officials when filing “Special Forest Product Permits” as part of the “Wildharvesting Cooperatives Across America Campaign“ I set up.
All This Turned Into a National Campaign:
