BONSHEÁ – Yaqui Indian – meaning ‘out of the darkness into the light’
The story of Coral Anika Theill is possibly one of the most flagrant, outrageous examples of small town injustice in America. - Tim King/Editor/Salem-News.com
(Dallas, Oregon) Just when you thought you knew what was going on in your community, here comes a story that just may shatter the security of your American Dream. This is a story about abuse, survival, false religion and dubious court systems in a state that may be advanced on some levels, but remains a miserable failure in terms of equity and fairness and conventional thinking. - Tim King/Editor/Salem-News.com, War Correspondent & Author

The price for my own safety and freedom in 1996 was an imposed, unnatural and unwanted separation from my eight children. The injustice committed against me is not just the physical separation from my children, but the willful desecration of the mother-child relationship and bond, a sacred spiritual and emotional entity.
Forcibly taking a mother's children, and then controlling her emotionally by withholding contact must be publicly recognized as one of the greatest forms of 'mis-use' of the American justice system and one of the greatest hidden vehicles for wide-spread socially approved physical and emotional abuse and control.
Nothing justifies the minimization or removal of a fit and loving parent from a child's life. NOTHING.
LIFE Magazine, USA Today and many other magazines have featured articles on women in prison in America. They report that women prisoners are allowed to keep their babies with them for eighteen months while serving their sentences, (Florida Statute 944.24). I am haunted by this single question. Why was I treated lower than a criminal by Oregon's judicial law system? Presently, I have fewer rights than a criminal in America and I have no criminal record and have no history of alcohol, drug or child abuse.

April 2013 NEW BOOK RELEASE Flyer
BONSHEÁ Making Light of the Dark shares my search for freedom and light in a society based on patriarchal religion and laws. It openly speaks about the ideas and beliefs in our society which foster sexism, racism, the denigration of human rights and the intolerance of difference. My documentation exposes the dark side of human nature when all people are not valued. A healthy society must have the courage to address these issues, speak about them, examine them and bring them to light. Indifference encourages, "silent violence"-the type of violence I experienced in my home, in the community, religious circles and judicial system. Nobel laureate, Elie Wiesel states, "The indifference to suffering makes the human inhumane.
Dr. Kuttner’s betrayal of me, dismissing my pleas for help regarding his associate Mr. Amiotte, then becoming annoyed with me when I reported I was being threatened, financially exploited and abused, has caused me much reflection.
There would not have been any professional consequences to Dr. Kuttner had I been murdered on August 6, 2000 by George D. Amiotte. I would have only been a "statistic." - Revised 2013 Edition BONSHEA Making Light of the Dark
