Dear Sir:


Akha is listed.
We have been advised that the word "Peeh Mah" was used for the
translation of the Jesus Film for the people who crucified Jesus,
against our advisement.

This can be shown to violate the linguistic rights of the Akha people in
casting disparagement on their traditional culture, a long standing
practice of missionaries and christians here in northern Thailand.

Furthermore you were advised that the wording was insulting and
inaccurate.  You chose to use it anyway, possible on the suggestion of a
number of stooges here in Thailand.

We are currently seeking to file a lawsuit against your organization in
the US.
