This particular case you’re about to read is what began the compilation of information found throughout this site; Wild Willpower’s Campaign Organizer, Distance Everheart, has been inundated by several different scenarios where police officers throughout California have violated her rights via using unConstitutional (rights-abrogating) local city codes & state laws. she’s begun doing some research to try to figure out how & why this has been 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’s faced the unique position of being in the role of a “homeless person” in The United States while also doing very important work for our nation & for humanity. During this time, she began realizing how many homeless people everywhere are having to face injustices by having their rights violated under color of law nearly every day while having no place to legally “be” AND while having no resources to afford a lawyer for when this type of event happens.
The below case shows the first time she really began to take a stand against the injustice, & during the process learned much more than she expected. At the time of the event, she had only learned some about various laws & case rulings she was able to loosely 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 ready to file, soon.
Updates to this case-in-progress are made public for First Amendment purposes via this website & the below links as firsthand accounts by Distance Everheart. All the case evidence- including police footage with personal commentary & testimony- can be found below:
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.
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’ assumed civil rights, AND to have them 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 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 than what I was raised into (Iowa) & 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 Cherokee Medicine Man & WIld Skills Expert & U.S. Army Veteran; I built his website at www.RichardLonewolf.com.
Above: This is the first flier I put together for Lonewolf before building his website or 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– 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”. This knowledge, combined with that which Lonewolf has been teaching me, led to conceiving the website I’ve been putting together on www.WildLivingSkills.org.

After investing many years in these studies & building websites to connect this very improtant knowledge with the world amongst a nationally-relevant platform (www.WildWillpower.org)
I built a campaign on www.IndieGogo.com to help fundraise & get the word out to people asap:
