"Another part of the problem is that there are many people claiming to be “decolonized” or who are “traditional” or who are “not as colonized” as others and they can often act as gatekeepers against legitimate Indigenous interest in returing to thier cultural traditions. Or worse, as “culture cops” who take the beauty of our cultures and deface it to claim power over others and to defend their own colonization by placing their actions as justifiable and right during times of widespread wrongs."

What bothers me about Natives who repost the photos of Middle-Eastern men is the racial profiling that they are, perhaps unwittingly, engaging in. This is part of the colonized mindset that we've been subjected to. We function in the role of the oppressor via internalized oppression. We ourselves are subjected to racial profiling. And the racial profiling us part of a very long history of the stereotyping of Native people. Yet, some turn around and feed into racial profiling that dives a wedge between diverse peoples, cultures, and religions.

Tribal Trust - The treaties is not a gift, or special interests, they are a core responsibility of trust and agreement.

Tribal Trust - The treaties is not a gift, or special interests, they are a core responsibility of trust and agreement. | Northwoods Wolf Alliance | Scoop.it

The Fish and Wildlife Service's Midwest Region recently developed this video as a tool to help our employees better understand our trust responsibilities as a federal agency for working with Indian Tribes.

A unique relationship exists between Native American Tribes and the United States Government; and, this relationship has important implications for the Service and the work that we do.

"This video is the newest tool developed to help us all better understand what our responsibilities are, how this applies to the work we do, and how we can work together to meet our shared goals," said Midwest Regional Director, Tom Melius. "Effectively working with Tribes is a priority for our Region and presents a tremendous conservation partnership opportunity".

Many individuals, including many of our Tribal partners, Service employees, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and our regional Office of the Solicitor contributed to producing the video. We hope it will be a valuable resource not only for our employees but also for our Tribal partners and others who are interested in learning more about the Federal trust responsibility to Indian Tribes.

More information on our work with Tribes is available on our Partnerships with Native Americans website at: http://www.fws.gov/midwest/Tribal

Freedom Walk BuffaloBloggers Against Social InjusticeSaturday, April 6, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM (PDT)Buffalo, NY

Sex slavery is real and it's happening in our communities. Just this December there was a minor being prostituted against her will across the street from University at Buffalo North Campus. So please come join us and help our community become aware of such an important issue!

Click attend on our FACEBOOK Event Page HERE!

Tweet us @ourBASI and give us a shout out! #FreedomWalkBuffalo

 

Program

 9:00 am | Registration, "Made-by-survivors" boutique,  and Free Breakfast

10:30 am | Honorary Speakers

12:30 pm | 3km Freedom Walk

 

Sex slavery is real and it's happening in our communities. Just this December there was a minor being prostituted against her will across the street from University at Buffalo North Campus.

 

One week from today we will be crossing the border to Buffalo, New York to attend a very special event. In September 2012 a passionate, dynamic group of students from the University of Buffalo attended our Freedom Walk in Toronto. Their group, "BASI-(Bloggers Against Social Injustice)" strive to create change and raise awareness about the issues affecting our world. After the event they approached us and told us how inspired they were by our walk and made mention of organizing a similar event in Buffalo. Fast forward to April 2013 and Freedom Walk Buffalo is in full effect and will be taking place on Saturday April 6th, 2013 beginning at the University of Buffalo. After speakers and presentations we will head to the streets and show Buffalo that people should not be bought or sold! Just last year there was a 14 year old girl rescued from a downtown Buffalo motel. She was being sold for sex by a pimp that lured her off the internet. There hasn't been an event quite like this before in Buffalo, so it will be groundbreaking and bring much needed attention to the cause. Randy Phipps, from our Executive Committee will be speaking at this event, as well as international survivor advocate Anna Beard and victim service community educator, Kerry Battenfeld. They will be joined by Renan Salgado, a 13 year human trafficking specialist with the Worker Justice Center of New York. Over 300 people are expected and funds raised will be donated to PATH Buffalo and [free-them]. We are so honoured to be involved and so proud of these world changers!

Protecting Our Women From Violence/Reclaiming Our Safety

Published on Mar 1, 2013

Selected moments from the rally Protecting Our Women From Violence/Reclaiming Our Safety on March 1, 2013 in Edmonton. The rally stemmed from victims of violence being re-victimized when trying to access help. Specifically, a young Aboriginal woman sought help from the police after an assault, only to be arrested on an old warrant.

This doesn't surprise me. It doesn't matter if it's Canada, the U.S., Central or South America, Indonesia, or where ever indigenous people struggle against extractive resource colonialism. Michele Bachmann has refrerred to environmentalist activists as "eco-terrorists." But this is nothing more than Orwellian double-talk. Those who commit acts of terrorism against the environment is a collusion of legislators, with corporate backing, who pass bills/laws that enable extractive resource industries to pillage the earth and leave a legacy of ecocide.

In 2008, Ecuador incorporated the Rights of Nature into their constitution. The constitution also guaranteed the rights of their indigenous peoples. So why is it that the Shuar have to defend themselves against the encroachment of China and Canada. Why is Rafael Correa allowing two countries, with records of human rights abuses against their indigenous populations, into Ecuador?

I'm often asked about the timeline of the Anishinaabe in my talks. The timeline I give is basically the one posted here. Obviously we were here a long time ago - long before the Invasion. I also have other sources, from elders, who say that the first on the migration were the Blackfeet, Cheyenne, and Arapaho - who are part of the Anishinaabe language tree (usually referred to as the Algonquian language tree.) This makes sense since those peoples are settled further west. This initial migration was followed by the Three Fires migration.

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's curator insight, February 7, 2013 3:11 PM

Sacred story of creation belongs to Native peoples. In Minnesota, there are seven Anishinaabe (Chippewa, Ojibwe) reservations and four Dakota (Sioux). Understand that tribes retained these "reservations" after ceding original homelands to the United States through treaty agreements. The federal government did not "give" anything to the indigenous people. Most of the land was taken, treaties are under legal challenges, and for that reason, putting values and numbers on "acreage" is meaningless. And here it is where we must begin with the wolf, who is the heart center of the native peoples' creation story.


The Anishinaabe or Ojibwe creation story teaches that the original man, the Anishinaabeg, was "lonely and asked the Creator for a companion," says Reyna Crow of the Northwoods Wolf Alliance.

 

The Creator sent Wolf (Ma'iingan) to be the Peoples' companion and brother. Ma'iingan and Anishinaabeg were told to travel together and name everything in nature, including all of the plants and animals. After they did this, they returned to the Creator who told Wolf and Anishinaabeg that he would separate them. From now on they would forever walk apart from each other, but that they would live parallel lives. "WHAT HAPPENS TO ONE WILL ALSO BEFALL THE OTHER," the Creator said.

 

The final part of the creation narrative tells the People that Wolf felt badly that his human companions would be lonely without him. So, he gave his descendant, Dog (Animoosh), as a sacred gift. Now Dog is the Peoples' loyal and devoted companion, ensuring that there is no need to walk alone.

 

In the course of the brutal settlement of America, both the wolf and indigenous peoples were hunted, slaughtered, hated, and vilified as white culture bled across the tapestry of the land. Indeed, Wolf and the People are still walking parallel lives.

 

"If you take the fur of ma'iingan, you take the flesh off my back," says Robert DesJarlait, of the Red Lake Ojibwe-Anishinaabe Nation. DesJarlait is a writer, journalist, artist and a member of the University of Minnesota Council of Elders. DesJarlait "signs his works of art with the symbol of a wolf's paw to honor the historic and ancient connection between tribal people and wolves."

Robert DesJarlait's curator insight, February 11, 2013 2:22 PM

Ma'iinganag and Manoomin. It is all connected and a part of the Four Orders of Life. The forced migration/displacement of Ma'iinganag is one of the impacts of nonferrous mining. The sneseless slaughter of Ma'iinganag is part of the colonized mindset in which wildlife and the environment is an obstacle for corporate personhood and the relentless agenda of ecocide.
