Defenders of the Land: Indigenous Peoples have clear demands for real change | #IdleNoMore

Defenders of the Land: Indigenous Peoples have clear demands for real change | #IdleNoMore | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

#IDLENOMORE Defenders of the Land, a network of Indigenous communities and activists in land struggle across Canada, including Elders and youth, women and men, dedicated to building a fundamental movement for Indigenous rights, was founded at a historic meeting in Winnipeg from November 12-14, 2008. The network organized educational Indigenous Sovereignty Weeks across the country for three successive years, and issued a call for a National Day of Action on June 24, 2010, during the G-20 in Toronto, which saw a march attended by 10,000 people.

 

In 2008, Defenders of the Land developed a basis of unity and set of demands with the help of a broad range of land-based Indigenous activists. These demands – now slightly updated – are deeply in tune with the Idle No More movement and could serve as a powerful unifying force for this new movement.

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Lack of integrity and honor for the tribes let alone Wisconsinites who have expressed NO to the mines on the ceded lands, Penokee Hills, in northern Wisconsin. The state-wide opposition is overwhelming, yet these leaders ignore them. Shame! #idlenomore.

 

If ONE shovel goes into the EARTH, it will DESTROY the OJIBWE people. - ONE Mine that poisons the WATER intoxicates ONE person is NO TINY matter.

History of Allotment | Indian Land Tenure Foundation

History of Allotment | Indian Land Tenure Foundation | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
In 1887, Congress passed the General Allotment Act, which authorized the president (at the time Grover Cleveland) to survey Indian tribal land and divide the area into allotments for individual Indians and families.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

On This Day: In 1887 the Dawes General Allotment Act was enacted by the U.S. Congress regarding the distribution of land to Native Americans in Indian Territory (later Oklahoma). The Act was amended in 1891 and again in 1906 by the Burke Act. The act remained in effect until 1934. The act provided for the division of tribally held lands into individually-owned parcels and opening "surplus" lands to settlement by non-Indians and development by railroads. By dividing reservation lands into privately owned parcels, legislators hoped to complete the assimilation process by forcing the deterioration of the communal life-style of the Native societies and imposing Western-oriented values of strengthening the nuclear family and values of economic dependency strictly within this small household unit. The land granted to most allottees was not sufficient for economic viability, and division of land between heirs upon the allottees' deaths resulted in land fractionalization. Most allotment land, which could be sold after a statutory period of 25 years, was eventually sold to non-Native buyers at bargain prices. Additionally, land deemed to be "surplus" beyond what was needed for allotment was opened to White settlers, though the profits from the sales of these lands were often invested in programs meant to aid the American Indians. Native Americans lost, over the 47 years of the Act's life, about 90 million acres (360,000 km⊃2;) of treaty land, or about two-thirds of the 1887 land base. About 90,000 Native Americans were made landless.

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Media Release: On February 14, We Are Idle No More!

Idle No More is organizing events in solidarity with two important initiatives on February 14th:  Idle No More is inviting people to join in creating an inclusive Valentines and organize community events to coincide with The Women’s Memorial March ( A national campaign for missing and murdered Indigenous women) One Billion Rising (an international campaign to stop violence against women and girls) and Have a Heart Day (an initiative to support Indigenous children). Candle light vigils, teach-ins, rallies, round dances, marches and other creative acts of awareness, resistance and solidarity are being encouraged. 

 

♥ Women’s Memorial March♥

The Women’s Memorial March is an opportunity to come together to grieve the loss of our beloved sisters, remember the women who are still missing, and to dedicate ourselves to justice. Twenty two years ago, in response to a Coast Salish woman's murder in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, an annual march began on Valentine’s Day to express compassion, community, and caring. Decades later, the march continues to honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women. To find a march near you, please visit: http://womensmemorialmarch.wordpress.com/national/

 

♥ V-DAY and One Billion Rising ♥

Idle No More is organizing in solidarity with V-Day, which is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. This Valentine's Day, an international event is taking place known as One Billion Rising. It is an attempt to get One Billion Men and Women to rise against violence towards women and girls. More information can be found here: tp://www.onebillionrising.org/pages/about-one-billion-rising

 

♥ HAVE A HEART DAY ♥

On Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013, celebrate Have a Heart Day by supporting Indigenous children to grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy, and proud of their cultures. Have a Heart Day is about caring Canadians working together to ensure Indigenous children have proper services that make them feel proud of who they are. Explore the Have a Heart Day website for more information, to send an e-Valentine, or to order Have a Heart Valentine’s cards, posters, bookmarks, and buttons, here: www.fncaringsociety.com/have-a-heart
