Fund established to benefit Nash family

Doug Nash, director of the Center for Indian Law and Policy, and his wife, Phyllis, lost their daughter, Mylie Jean, and two of their grandsons, Brett (14) and Warren (5), in a car accident near Pendleton, Oregon, on Tuesday, May 29.

Two grandchildren survived, Clarise (15) and Garrett (8), and have been hospitalized for the treatment of injuries. Clarise's injuries are serious, but not life threatening and the family is hopeful that she will be released from the hospital in the next several days.  Garrett's injuries are more serious and he has been taken to the Oregon Health Sciences Hospital in Portland where he is in serious but stable condition.  The full extent of his injuries is not yet known.

Doug's colleagues have established an account to help the family cover expenses. Donations may be made to:
