Maabiizagidz! It's a darn good day today! We had the ground breaking for our new MHA interpretative center that will serve the community by having a learning space that reinforces the importance of our language, history, and culture. They even put me next to my grandpa Emo. I'm shaking his hand and it looks like I'm asking for his vote. We even got to keep the hard hats and shovels so I'll be using my hat for whenever it hails out in Mandaree. #Nueta #mandan #hidatsa #arikara #mhanation #native #indigenous #nativenationsrise

John Trudell.  Native American author, poet, actor, musician, and political activist. How we miss you brother .  On February 11, 1979 Trudell had burned an American flag during a demonstration in front of the J.Edgar Hoover building, the headquarters of the F.B.I. In Washington, DC, Trudell explained his motives for the flag-burning. “In the military, they said if the flag has been desecrated, the only way to properly dispose of it is to burn it. But they defined desecration of the flag as if it drops on the earth. I say injustice and racism and classism and your whole way of life desecrates whatever you say this thing’s supposed to mean.” About 12 hours after the flag incident, in the early morning of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, a fire “of suspicious origin” burned down Trudell’s home on the Shoshone Palute reservation in Nevada, killing Trudell’s wife, Tina, their three children and Tina’s mother. Not surprisingly, the F.B.I. declined to investigate, and the blaze was officially ruled an “accident.” But Trudell flatly stated “It was murder; they were murdered as an act of war.” Devastated by the tragedy, Trudell withdrew from the world for a time, and it was during this period of grief and exile that Trudell discovered his poetic gift. “It was when I was looking for something to hang on to, to keep me connected to this reality, that I started writing. I did not write poetry prior to that…Tina was the writer. She wrote poetry. And almost six months after the fire, when I was looking for help — I was looking to cut any spiritual deal. I was pissed off at God, at the Great Spirit, at all of ’em because this was a betrayal to me… And then the lines came. The lines were my bombs, my explosions, my tears, they were my everything.” #first nation #metis #inuit #nativepride #nativeheritage #nativeamerican #indigenous #inuitcanada #firstnationcree  #proudnative #indigenouspeople #nativehistory #nativeamericanssoul #nativenationsrise

The challenge is upon us: climate chaos or communities of cooperation?  This is the question posed by the Indigenous Environmental Network, Movement Rights, and Women’s Earth & Climate Action Network at the #protectingmotherearthconference that #Audiopharmacy had the humble honor to be a part of and to perform for.  I learned so much about the importance of seeing ourselves as Nature, that our human activities are pushing the limits of our planet and the intricate eco-systems that support life. There is no time to wait.  We have no time to lose. We must shift our way of thinking, our practices and our relationship with each other and our planet to manifest the necessary balance for a sustainable future. I believe we can do this. Let’s keep the inspiration of co-creating a better world for the next seven generations together. And let’s do our best to call in joy and have a good time doing the work!
💕✊🏽🌱💦 .
Give thanks to Tom Goldtooth, Simone, Bridget, Tere, Holiday, and all the organizers, speakers, workshop facilitators, cooks, setup and cleanup crews, drivers, and all the good folks who made the trek to #nisquallyterritories to rise up for Mama Earth! .

Nunavik comprises the northern third of the province of Quebec, Canada in Kativik, part of the Nord-du-Québecregion. Covering a land area of (171,307.62 sq mi) north of the 55th parallel, it is the homeland of the Inuit of Quebec. Almost all of the 12,090 inhabitants  of the region, of whom 90% are Inuit, live in fourteen northern villages on the coast of Nunavik and in  the  Cree  reserved land (TC) of  Whapmagoostui, near the northern village of Kuujjuarapik.Concern  about Canada's claims to sovereignty in the high arctic resulted in the government of Canada forcing several Inuit families to leave Nunavik in the 1950s. They were transported much further north, to barren hamlets at Grise Fiord  and  Resolute in what is now Nunavut in an effort to demonstrate Canada's legal occupation of these territories and thereby assert sovereignty in the High Arctic by increasing its population during the Cold War. Eight Inuit families from Inukjuak (on the Ungava Peninsula) were relocated after being promised homes and game to hunt, but the relocated people discovered no buildings and very little familiar wildlife.[7] They were told that they would be returned home to Nunavik after a year if they wished, but this offer was later withdrawn as it would damage Canada's claims to sovereignty in the High Arctic area and the Inuit were forced to stay. Eventually, the Inuit learned the local beluga whalemigration routes and were able to survive in the area, hunting over a range of 6,900 sq mi each year. In 1993, the Canadian government held hearings to investigate the relocation program. The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples issued a report the following year entitled The High Arctic Relocation: A Report on the 1953–55 Relocation. The government paid $10 million CAD to the survivors and their families, and finally apologized in 2010.
The whole story is told in Melanie McGrath's The Long Exile: A Tale of Inuit Betrayal and Survival in the High Arctic.  #nativepride. #nativepridesoul #native  #nativehistory  #firstnation. #metis. #firstnationcree #inuit #inuitcanada #nativeamericansoul #indigenousrising #proudnative #indigenouspeople #nativenationsrise #nativewomen #inuit #

A missionary church on Tsuut’ina Nation’s Reserve in Alberta. Writer Hayley Simpson

In Canada, the term Aboriginal peoples refers to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, which was determined in Section 35 of the Constitution Act of 1983. Each of these groups were the country’s original inhabitants, and they all have very different histories.
The term First Nations, which Elder Sol Sanderson coined, actually only came into common use in the 1980s. There are currently 634 registered First Nations communities in Canada, with more than half of them in British Columbia and Ontario. Throughout these communities, more than 50 distinct and different languages are spoken. Historically, each community was self-governed and had its own culture and customs.
In the 19th century, the Canadian Indian residential school system was created to force the assimilation of First Nations into the European-Canadian culture. Denial of all of our ways, all of our culture.  The schools, developed under the Indian Act, separated children from families and were run by churches of different denominations. Yes the churches. We referred to the schools as “cultural genocide,” but yet they didn’t close until the 1960s. In 2008, the Canadian government officially apologized to the survivors of residential schools and their families. For whatever that was worth

Oh and I’ll send in the card to special recycling thanks to a tip from @zw.in.the.pnw on where to send cards 🙌🏼 : 
EARTHWORKS System™ plastic card recycling turns PVC plastic cards into new cards. Mail your used cards to:
Earthworks c/o Halprin Ind.

More reasons to divest: Mad about the separation of children from their families at the border?  Then quit financing it. If you haven't divested from Wall Street banks already, what are you waiting for? The Geo Group and CoreCivic are the two largest private prison corporations and are the ones behind the ICE detention centers.  Here are the 6 banks financing Geo Group and CoreCivic: Wells Fargo, @bankofamerica , @chase , @bnpparibas , @suntrust , and Us Bancorp

The California Genocide.  Ishi (c. 1861 – March 25, 1916) was the last known member of the Native American Yahi people from the state of California in the United States. The Yana were destroyed during the California Genocide in the 19th century. Ishi, who was widely acclaimed as the "last wild Indian" in America, lived most of his life isolated from modern American culture. In 1911, aged 50, he emerged near the foothills of Lassen Peak in Northern California.1865, Ishi and his family were attacked in the Three Knolls Massacre, in which 40 of their tribesmen were killed. Although 33 Yahi survived to escape, cattlemen killed about half of the survivors. The last survivors, including Ishi and his family, went into hiding for the next 44 years, and their tribe was popularly believed to be extinct. Prior to the California Gold Rush of 1848–1855, the Yahi population numbered 404 in California, but the total Yana numbered 2,997.
The gold rush brought tens of thousands of miners and settlers to northern California, putting pressure on native populations. Gold mining damaged water supplies and killed fish; the deer left the area. The settlers brought new diseases such as smallpox  and measles.The northern Yana group became extinct and the central and southern groups and Yahi populations dropped dramatically. Searching for food, they came into conflict with settlers, leading to bounties on the natives by the settlers. Prices included 50 cents per scalp and 5 dollars per head.

MARCH 2014/ Native tribe to return to US homeland after 154 years The Wiyot tribe were almost wiped out in a massacre on California's Indian Island in 1860. Native American tribe plans to return to their homeland in the US and perform a ceremony for the first time in 154 years since a massacre almost completely wiped them out. The 645 member-strong Wiyot tribe plans to perform a ceremony on March 28 on California’s Indian Island, returning to their homeland for the first time since white settlers massacred dozens of tribe members in 1860. Following the massacre, the survivors were put into concentration camps known as ‘jouwuchguri’, and were forbidden to speak their own language. Their island was later turned into a shipyard, where toxic boat batteries were stored alongside other chemicals. Archeologists also plundered their cemeteries in search of Wiyot bones. A century and a half on, their native language and lifestyle have all but vanished. In 1958 they were stripped of their tribal status by the US government  in a bid to assimilate native tribes, but successfully regained this status in 1990. The late 1960s and early 1970s saw some Native American uprisings in the US, with tribes demanding the return of their land, but they ended unsuccessfully.However, Cheryl Seidner, the niece of the tribal leader, became the Wiyot’s tribal chair in 1990 and starting campaigning and raising funds to buy the land on Indian Island back. In 2000, this goal was finally achieved, but the site was still a toxic waste dump. The tribe raised $2.8 million in 13 years to pay for the clean-up, and now the island is prepared to finally facilitate their return. Many of the cultural customs and dances of the tribe had been forgotten over time, and they are therefore learning Yurok dances to perform at the ceremony. We don't live in redwood slab houses, We're here, and we're trying to put the pieces of our culture together.'" #nativepride. #nativepridesoul #native  #nativehistory  #firstnation. #metis. #firstnationcree  #indigenousrising. #nativenationsrise #nativewomen #inuit #firstnation #powwows #powwowlife

MARCH 2014/ Native tribe to return to US homeland after 154 years The Wiyot tribe were almost wiped out in a massacre on California's Indian Island in 1860. Native American tribe plans to return to their homeland in the US and perform a ceremony for the first time in 154 years since a massacre almost completely wiped them out. The 645 member-strong Wiyot tribe plans to perform a ceremony on March 28 on California’s Indian Island, returning to their homeland for the first time since white settlers massacred dozens of tribe members in 1860. Following the massacre, the survivors were put into concentration camps known as ‘jouwuchguri’, and were forbidden to speak their own language. Their island was later turned into a shipyard, where toxic boat batteries were stored alongside other chemicals. Archeologists also plundered their cemeteries in search of Wiyot bones. A century and a half on, their native language and lifestyle have all but vanished. In 1958 they were stripped of their tribal status by the US government  in a bid to assimilate native tribes, but successfully regained this status in 1990. The late 1960s and early 1970s saw some Native American uprisings in the US, with tribes demanding the return of their land, but they ended unsuccessfully.However, Cheryl Seidner, the niece of the tribal leader, became the Wiyot’s tribal chair in 1990 and starting campaigning and raising funds to buy the land on Indian Island back. In 2000, this goal was finally achieved, but the site was still a toxic waste dump. The tribe raised $2.8 million in 13 years to pay for the clean-up, and now the island is prepared to finally facilitate their return. Many of the cultural customs and dances of the tribe had been forgotten over time, and they are therefore learning Yurok dances to perform at the ceremony.

#NativeNationsRise was one of the most unforgettable events of my life. My first time in DC turned out to be the beginning of lasting relationships, unity, and inspiration. I figured I’d run into some cousins from the rez while I was there, but who knew it would be so many. Feeling grateful tonight that I had such a great opportunity to use my voice while I was there. End rant. #Indigenous #Native #FirstNations #Arapaho #LateNightThoughts

A new trip around the Sun is feeling pretty good so far! My chest plate was made by the talented Gabriel García Román (@gbrlgrcrmn) with matching golden obsidian teardrop plugs in my ears. Shoutout to my Goddess @crystalgalindoart for the photo and for making this whole weekend extra special for my birthday!

Let this be a lesson to us all, to not accept the words of politicians, preachers, teachers or neighbors at face value and to guard our souls. We are still here!

My father a Proud Warrior,  a tanker in Korea.  The duration of WWII and the occupation.  He also served 2 years in Vietnam.  Growing up I thought it was this mean man to avoid at all costs and we did. There was no such diagnosis or understanding of PTSD.  He was a tortured soul, enslaved by the nightmares captured in his mind forever. He once told me it was his to bear and bear alone.  This he did.  God rest his soul

Trump said a few weeks back that no one called him to complain when he approved the Dakota Access Pipeline. He was lying, of course, and today thousands marched to the steps of his hotel to protest this massive oil line. Washington, DC., 2017.
