Rebuilding a Native American Organic Farm
Dale Redhawk Thorpe's saga now has a community responding to help rebuild the farm. He is having his day in court after documents show that a USDA-approved bank made him sign a commercial loan instead of a farm loan and a forensic accountant says Redhawk was tricked. Now after years of high interest rates, the bank is trying to take his organic farm. Dale Redhawk Thorpe is cousin to Native American Olympian Jim Thorpe. The historic land has been in the Thorpe family since the 1940's, was owned by Peter Stuyvesant in the early 1700's.
