Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I can understand why the Natives wouldn't want the natural resources to be used up. And I can see why they wouldn't want these piplines to be put in place. But there is a time where America and Canada need to sustain their energy and these piplines might be what we need. I think that we should be aware of the environment around us and I do think that we should try and preserve it the best we can but there does come a time where we as a country are expanding and we need to do things to help expand our resources and business and I think that the Native Americans should see both sides of the story.

Native Americans show off their art
Sioux Falls Argus Leader
Art illustrating the history and traditions of 33 Northern Plains Native American tribes will be on display this weekend in Sioux Falls.
Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I like this article because most people in our region can relate. It's a local area and in a fairly large area. I think that this is a great way to make people aware of the Native American culture. People enjoy the Native American art and I think that it should be more widely appreciated.

5 big Native American health issues you don't know about | Al Jazeera America

5 big Native American health issues you don't know about | Al Jazeera America | Native Americans | Scoop.it
There are many reasons Native Americans die younger.

Via Robert DesJarlait, Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson
Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I think that we should try and help the Native Americans with their poor health. They are in poverty which is one of the reasons why diabetes is so high in their culture. Maybe if we tried to support them and help them get real jobs they could live healthier lives. The Native American culture is dying. They are becoming a small group of people in the US but they are still people. Even though they want to keep their traditional values and beliefs I think that they should be practical and try and be productive citizens of the US. We did invade their land and I think that instead of fighting with them and putting them on reserves we should help them and treat them just like everyone else.

It's too bad that Al Jazeera got it wrong. Heart disease is the number one health issue for Natives and cancer is number two. That's not to say the other health issues tht Al Jazeera focuses on is off the mark. But heart disease and cancer should not be overlooked since they are the number and numbet two killers of Native Americans.

Lauren Kingery's curator insight, September 27, 2013 2:48 PM

Native Americans, struggle with many different health issues. I think we need to be aware of what is going on in their lives. We really need to help what they are going through. They have the highest rate of diabetes. Which is mostly caused by the poverty they live in. I think we should offer them more job oppertunities so they don't have to live in poverty. Also, they get food rations from the fedual goverenment, which are cheap and unhealthy. They struggle from a lot of thngs becasue of the enviroment and conditions they live in, so I think its our job as the United States to help them out. And then hopefully with better condition and with them in better health, they can become succesfull and the health issues for Native Americans will drop.

Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I think that it was right of Obama to nominate a Native American to Federal Court. I think that they should have representation just like everyone else. They are people too and they need to be represented just like the rest of us. I think that this will be good for the US and I think that this will be a good change.

Race-based team name - The Detroit News

Race-based team name - The Detroit News | Native Americans | Scoop.it
Race-based team name
The Detroit News
In 1755, when the United States was just 13 colonies, Spencer Phips, lieutenant governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, called for British settlers to kill Native Americans who resisted.
Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I think that this topic is important because I think that a team with this much influence should make sure that they don't offend anyone. I agree with the opinion that this team name may be race based. But, I don't think that it should be found as offensive. I think that the Indians should be honored that they are being represented by a major franchise, but I do still think that may a more proper name than the redskins should be used.

I completely agree with you. I think that it would be a huge honor to have a team representing who you are, but I can also understand how it would be offending.
katelyn kime's comment, October 2, 2013 12:01 PM
If the people are having bad words to say about the team name and if its affecting Native Americans I think it is important that the team decides to change the name. You would rather have people say good things about the football team than negative things.
Aanna Roslien's comment, October 3, 2013 1:24 PM
I agree that some people may get offended by the name but then again they're not trying to be offensive. I think it'd be kind of cool to have a team named after you!

Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I think that this is a great way to honor Native Americans. I like how they ride the Trail of Tears and remember all of the hardships that they had to go through. I like how it has grown and has been given more recognition. This article stuck out to me because it showed how even though the Trail of Tears was in the early years of America we still honor their journey today.

Laurel Stelter's comment, September 27, 2013 2:19 PM
Wow, that is a lot of motorcyclists! I think it is very important for people to remember the trail of tears and to honor those who walked it. I cannot believe how many people were expected to show up and ride by the end of the ride! Cool article.
Lauren Kingery's comment, October 2, 2013 1:59 PM
I agree with what you are saying Corin. I think it is really important to remember what the Native Americans had to go through. And I think it was really cool how people didn't stop even if the weather was bad. I think the Trail of Tears Remembrance Ride is an amazing event. And I think this event should be remembered because it honors those Native Americans who had to take part in that horrible event.

Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I think that this festival is a great way to honor Native American culture. They were here first and I think that they deserve to keep their culture alive. I think that the traditions of the Native Americans are very cool and down to Earth. I think that their culture is very unique and that they should share their culture with others.

Native Women, Even Babies, Exploited In Lake Superior Sex Trade - Mintpress News

Native Women, Even Babies, Exploited In Lake Superior Sex Trade - Mintpress News | Native Americans | Scoop.it
Race-based team name
The Detroit News
In 1755, when the United States was just 13 colonies, Spencer Phips, lieutenant governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, called for British settlers to kill Native Americans who resisted.
Corin McKinstrey's insight:

I think that this is important, because it involves both Canada and the US. Also because it involves exploiting innocent women. To be honest this kind of thing disgusts me. I think that something needs to be done to stop the ships that are bringing the hostages to and from Canada. Sex Trading is a major problem and no woman, man, or child should ever be sold into something that violates their own bodies and I think there should be major consequences.
