'Star Wars' to Be Translated Into a Native American Language

'Star Wars' to Be Translated Into a Native American Language | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"For over 35 years, the Star Wars universe has spoken the universal language of geek. Now the 1977 classic will take on another language. No, not Gungan again, thank goodness.

 

Rather, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the original 1977 classic Star Wars will be translated and dubbed into Navajo. Manuelito Wheeler, the director of the Navajo Nation Museum, confirmed they are working with Lucasfilm and Deluxe on the project. While Star Wars has been translated into many different languages, this particular translation is a historic one: it will be the first major Hollywood film to be translated for Native Americans."

The Link: November is National American Indian Heritage Month

"In 1986 Congress passed a law asking President Reagan to declare the last week in November “American Indian Week”.  In 1990, they decided to honor the people and tribes who were the original inhabitants of this land by proclaiming the entire month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month.  The practice has continued since then, and the designated celebration encourages all Americans to learn more about the indigenous people and culture of the United States.  Here is a group of resources gathered by the ipl2 to help everyone honor the intention and find out something new or interesting about Native American literature, art, and history."

Honoring Native Culture in Oceanside: Local and Sustainable Ethnic Programs in Libraries

Honoring Native Culture in Oceanside: Local and Sustainable Ethnic Programs in Libraries | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians  do not have a reservation or a cultural center, which made the request from tribal members for a special program more compelling. This is an ethnicity that is deeply rooted in Oceanside’s Southern California culture and geography, yet clearly one that had been underrepresented in community programs. The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians, having recently organized a photographic history of its members, and with the urging of the local Arts Commission, was looking for a place to display it. San Luis Rey Band captain Mel Vernon says that the library is, in fact, the one open channel that the tribe has to share local Native American history and experience with the broader community."

President Obama Answers Questions From Indian Country Today Media Network In Unprecedented Exchange

President Obama Answers Questions From Indian Country Today Media Network In Unprecedented Exchange | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Claiming that his record shows he is more committed than his opponent in the  upcoming presidential election to serving Indian country, President Barack Obama  has answered questions about some of the major issues facing American Indian  citizens and tribes today.

 

“[With me] as president, you have a voice in the White House,” he tells  Indian Country Today Media Network. “We’re moving forward, but there’s more work  to do. But we are seeing a turning point in the relationship between our  nations, and ultimately our relationship is not just a matter of legislation or  a matter of policy. It’s a matter of whether we’re going to live up to our basic  values.”

 

Not only is this the first time President Obama has done a Q&A with the American Indian press, it is believed to be the first time a sitting president  of the United States has conducted such an interview with Native media. It’s a first that aligns with the image Obama has worked hard to cultivate in Indian country."

Treuer is the author of The Assassination of Hole in the Day (Borealis Books, 2010), which explores what led  to the murder of the controversial Ojibwe chief of the title. Guiding his people through the initial years of white occupation and dispossession, Hole in the Day “created a new kind of leadership for the Ojibwe,” the association said in a media release.
