Chief Theresa Spence, Attawapiskat and International Indian Treaty Council File Urgent Action Request with U.N. #IdleNoMore

Chief Theresa Spence, Attawapiskat and International Indian Treaty Council File Urgent Action Request with U.N. #IdleNoMore | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
Attawapiskat First Nation Chief Theresa Spence and her band have appealed to the U.N. for help fighting Bills C-45 and C-38.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

International Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination(ICERD). 

 “Indigenous Peoples, the Canadian government and the world will be paying close attention to the CERD’s consideration of a submission from the International Indian Treaty Council (IITC) and the Mushkegowuk People of Attawapiskat First Nation in Canada filed last week under the CERD’s Early Warning and Urgent Action Procedures,” IITC said in a statement, alleging that the bills—passed in June and December 2012—were put through without aboriginal consultation. The two bills, opponents claim, gut key environmental protections, in essence abrogating treaty rights. Bill C-45, by changing the way aboriginals can own land on reserves, also undermines treaties, opponents say.

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

We voted for senate and congress to ensure they would protect our mothers and daughters to re-enact the Violence Against Women Act that includes the provisions of Tribal Nations. - Congress needs to get off their BUTTS! 

 

NCAI ‏@NCAI1944

Congress must reauthorize the #VAWA so tribes have the authority to prosecute non-Natives accused of violence against women on tribal lands.

 

#NCAI No other government would stand for this violation of sovereignty or continued injustice. No other government has to.#VAWA


NCAI ‏@NCAI1944

We know the tragic reality: but tribes don't have the authority to prosecute non-Natives who beat, rape, or even kill women on tribal lands.

U.S. Office for Civil Rights Asked to Ban American Indian Mascots in Michigan Public Schools

U.S. Office for Civil Rights Asked to Ban American Indian Mascots in Michigan Public Schools | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
Consider a gifted American Indian athlete's dilemma when contemplating whether to try out for a team because of the offense that will have to be endured by being required to wear a uniform with an acknowledged racial slur on it.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Its about time .... "A growing and unrebutted body of evidence now establishes that the use of American Indian imagery reinforces stereotypes in a way that negatively impacts the potential for achievement by students with American-Indian ancestry. The negative impact on this minority of students is NOT associated with malicious intent, or even benign negativism. In fact the impact of even "positive" stereotyping ... produces a similarly detrimental impact (MDCR complaint, 2013, p. 5)."

Statement from GLIFWC Chair Michael J. Isham, Jr. regarding Wisconsin tribal declarations | Facebook

Statement from GLIFWC Chair Michael J. Isham, Jr. regarding Wisconsin tribal declarations | Facebook | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it

Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC) wrote a note titled Statement from GLIFWC Chair Michael J. Isham, Jr. regarding Wisconsin tribal declarations. Read the full text here. - 

 

Background Information and Harvest Data (see graph below)

Since 1990, the Wisconsin DNR estimates average annual state ceded territory walleye harvest to be 257,000 walleyes out of an average annual catch of 1,006,000 walleyes. In contrast, tribal ceded territory walleye harvest has averaged 26,247 annually during the same time period. Tribal harvest has ranged from 16,054 to 32,201 walleyes. Unlike state harvest, which is estimated from creel surveys, tribal harvest is determined by counting every fish at the boat landing.

 

Under the terms of the Lac Courte Oreilles v. State of Wisconsin case, tribal spear harvest is controlled by a "Safe Harvest" system. This system limits tribal declarations to no more than about 12% of a lake's estimated walleye population for spearfishing. For 2013, the Tribes have declared their intent to harvest between 6-11% of the estimated walleye population of particular lakes.

    

Walleye harvest by Wisconsin licensed anglers is not managed directly by the "Safe Harvest" system or standard. Rather, it is managed by a different standard for an acceptable level of catch.

 

This level of catch is called the Total Allowable Catch or TAC which is 35% of a lake's walleye

population.

Top GOP Senator: Native American Juries Are Incapable Of Trying White People Fairly | #IdleNoMore #VAWA

Top GOP Senator: Native American Juries Are Incapable Of Trying White People Fairly | #IdleNoMore #VAWA | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
INDIANOLA, Iowa — Republicans have offered a number of reasons why they oppose the Violence Against Women Act. Some think it’s unconstitutional. Others argue that it’s just a meaningless bill with a patriotic title.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Dipstick ... there would be a jury in place to coordinate with the new tribal court provisions. SO, the white man can continue to rape, murder and abuse tribal women because you are worried about constitutional rights of the murderer or abuser. Um, last time I check tribal courts can be fair and just in accordance to the laws of the land. They would have the resource thereafter to have a trial and jury. Note to self, I suggest you worry about the mothers and daughters being violated as a key factor first as if that were a white woman' Grassley would be ALL OVER IT to help. - racist!

 

 

GRASSLEY: One provision that non-Native Americans can be tried in tribal court. And why is that a big thing? Because of the constitutionality of it, for two reasons. One, you know how the law is, that if you have a jury, the jury is supposed to be a reflection of society. [...] So you get non-Indians, let me say to make it easy, you get non-Indians going into a reservation and violating a woman. They need to be prosecuted. They aren’t prosecuted. So the idea behind [VAWA] is we’ll try them in tribal court. But under the laws of our land, you got to have a jury that is a reflection of society as a whole, and on an Indian reservation, it’s going to be made up of Indians, right? So the non-Indian doesn’t get a fair trial.

FOLLOW UP - ‎"WHO IS PAYING FOR THE CRIMES AGAINST THE CHILDREN?" - #IDLENOMORE

"PROOF OF CANADA's GENOCIDE OF FIRST NATIONS CHILDREN! (Deeply Disturbing Information)" via Ditto.

"The CANADIAN GOVERNMENT, BRITISH CROWN represented by QUEEN ELIZABETH II, the POPE and the VATICAN (Roman Catholic Church), Anglican Church, Presbyterian Church, United Church, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), and the perpetrators/collaborators of the crimes are GUILTY OF GENOCIDE!"

"Their CRIMES are being EXPOSED!"

"The following information is given as presented by the International Tribunal Into Crimes of Church and State. The crimes are much greater than outlined here. But this information is documented by witness testimony and evidence presented at the court proceedings. The schools listed are only the schools where they have documented evidence. There are many victims and witnesses to crimes that have been committed who could yet come forward and present further evidence and testimony to crimes committed against themselves and others.This is an ongoing investigation, but this is the documented evidence presented on November 6, 2012. The links to the proceedings are in the "Source" material listed at the end of this note, which includes video testimony of witnesses, victims and also of exhibits entered as evidence. Recently, ITCC issued subpoenas - one being to the Pope. He resigned shortly after receiving this subpoena, and is asking for immunity protection from the Italian Government."

Heather Martin's comment, May 27, 2013 10:03 PM
It is important to distinguish facts from fiction... While many of the accusations made in Ditto's link are based on historical records, there are falsehoods thrown into the posting as well. The photograph depicting human skulls with the caption that reads below it stating that this is from a mass grave discovered at a Residential school in Alberta, Canada is actually a photograph taken of a mass grave in Syria and was originally Published in National Geographic Magazine. This is the type of hype that this issue can no longer afford. The horrible consequences of the abuses at Residentiall Schools is bad enough without the supporters of a con artist photoshopping the crimes for shock value.

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Beautifully written ... "I like to imagine what the world would look like if men and women saw themselves these ways, if we saw men and women these ways. Or, if we lived in societies where comfort for heterosexuality was replaced with comfort for gender fluidity and diversity, in expression, responsibilities, and relationship. A gender fluid and diverse world includes heterosexual identities and relationships as well. Certainly, we know that organizing life around the wants, dreams, desires, voice, thoughts, needs, limitations, and strengths of (western meanings of) man—white, brown, beige, or black—does not work and is not working. Women—brown, beige, black, and white—of all abilities and classes, tell us this and work tirelessly at changing it. Men who experience patriarchy as oppressive for men and/or women, also tell us this and work with women to create change. Given this situation, it’s invigorating to imagine how the remembering and recognition of gender fluid and diverse societies might be organized. I like to imagine how the world would engage Indigenous women and girls if gender fluidity and diversity supplanted the dominating logic and structure of a colonial world. I like to imagine how this might alter the state of Missing and Murdered Women."
