Changing the Way We See Native Americans

 

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In 2013 Matika Wilbur took on a project of massive scope: to photograph members of each Federally recognized tribe in the United States. "My dream," Wilbur says, "is that our children are given images that are more useful, truthful, and beautiful."

We need to preserve these foods and the knowledge of them for they will be needed again.

 

Cattail broad leaf shoots, chokecherries, beaked hazelnuts, lamb's-quarters, plains prickly pear, prairie turnips, stinging nettles, wild plums, raspberries and rose hips — into the diet of the tribes of the region could improve nutrition and potentially prevent disease. Twigs and leaves from chokecherries are high in vitamin K, fiber and calcium.

 

The superstar of the study was lamb's-quarters, a wild green that's been consumed by hunter-gatherers from northern California all the way to Africa for food as well as medicine. Lamb's-quarters has been considered a weed in western gardens and corporate farms. It is exterminated whenever possible.

 

The study found that one serving of steamed lamb's-quarters contained more than 60 percent of the thiamin, 40 percent of the vitamin B6, 60 percent of the calcium and 70 percent of the magnesium of the daily recommended intake.

The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) has proposed amending its regulations over how it determines the value, for royalty purposes, of oil produced on American Indian leases. If enacted, the department said the change could boost tribal royalties by $20 million annually.

How do we as NDN peoples shape and push this agenda forward? Sign me up - I believe to integrate Indian education into existing curriculums such as math, reading, music, history and other subjects is the only path forward for NDN peoples long term.

 

The idea “is not Indian education for Indians — it’s Indian education for all" so that we all can have a common understanding of why things like Red*kin is not acceptable to use.

Monday June 2 marked the 90th anniversary of the Indian Citizenship Act, or the Snyder Act, which granted U.S. citizenship to Native Americans born in the United States.  

 

Yep that’s right – did you miss it?  If so don’t feel bad as most never notice.  There are no large celebrations or marked observances from Native America about this day like there is for other groups such as Blacks or Women observing the date they received such rights.  Potentially NDNs dont celebrate this day due to the fact that not very much has changed in 90 years for them.  

 

Native American might all have originated from Missouri where the motto is show me.  Over last few hundred years American Indians have come to trust less in the spoken or even written words of the western peoples and government and rely much more on their acute observance of actions.  

 

The bill was enacted partially in light of the thousands of Native Americans who had served in the U.S. Army in WWI, but also because of a growing awareness by the federal government in 1924 of the tens of thousands living in abject poverty.

 

After nine decades of being recognized for the first time as Americans who deserve equal say and status, life has yet to improve for many Native Americans. High rates of unemployment, suicide and a lack of adequate health care are prevelant among all of the nation's 566 tribes.

 

If one or two - perhaps they have a chip on shoulder - if all perhaps failure should be declaired so we can start a new.

American society has a remarkably short memory when it comes to past injustices. University of Georgia historian Claudio Saunt is looking to correct that, at least in the case of Europeans' violent seizing of Native Americans' land. Saunt created an interactive map showing the decline of Indian homelands from 1776 to 1887.

 

By 1776 vast tracts of home land had already been claimed by the hostile european invaders. This map shows how the remaining land was taken.  European-Americans took what amounted to over 1.5 billion acres:
