It’s kind of been a roller coaster ride. We’re all excited about everything that was gong to happen with the annual meeting … And then at the beginning of the year we started to get reports and that’s when we started saying, “What are we going to do? How is this going to happen?”

But in reality, it was a breeding ground for abuse. This is the story of Anneewakee, as never told before.
