Char-Koosta News - Ravalli County commissioner hand delivers apology to Tribal Council

Char-Koosta News - Ravalli County commissioner hand delivers apology to Tribal Council | Native American Discrimination | Scoop.it
Off-color remarks' sting salved by gesture of goodwill.
Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

This man shouldn't have had to apologize for his actions in the first place. Seriously, who in their right mind calls a group of people 'drunken Indians' publicly, when trying to WIN their approval. I think, as 'white Americans,' we need to learn a lot more humility - Raeanne

Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

I agree with the group of people trying to change the name of the Washington football team. 'Redskin' is a very derogatory name to call a Native American and the saying is very outdated. The team could perhaps change their name to a better alternative. Same people may say that people are being too sensitive about the name, but the name really does offend a lot of people - especially those of Native American ancestry - Raeanne

Discrimination ruling upheld in Native American teen's jail death - The Missoulian

Discrimination ruling upheld in Native American teen's jail death - The Missoulian | Native American Discrimination | Scoop.it
Discrimination ruling upheld in Native American teen's jail death The Missoulian GREAT FALLS — A state hearings officer has upheld a ruling that Blaine and Hill counties showed discriminatory indifference toward an 18-year-old inmate in the Hill...
Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

This article is both happy and sad. It is incredibly sad that this young teen died because the counties refused to treat them. But it has a bright side in the fact that the counties were fined and the deputies are now required to treat ailing inmates. If this young inmate was not Native American, he might have been treated while in jail - Raeanne

Supreme Court Discrimination Against Native America Cannot Be Tolerated - Indian Country Today Media Network

Supreme Court Discrimination Against Native America Cannot Be Tolerated - Indian Country Today Media Network | Native American Discrimination | Scoop.it
Supreme Court Discrimination Against Native America Cannot Be Tolerated
Indian Country Today Media Network
The world is moving forward on Indigenous Rights, yet the Supreme Court of the United States is moving backward.
Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

This interesting article points out the the United States Supreme Court directly contradicts itself. In one statement, they say "Native Americans have the right for self-governance etc..." but the facts show that the Supreme Court rules against Native Americans in 9 out of 10 cases. The article's main point was that all Native Americans want is the right to self-govern their own tribes and how easily that could be achieved if the United Stated Government didn't keep denying them that - Raeanne

Governor's daughter outrages Native Americans with performance - KOCO Oklahoma City

Governor's daughter outrages Native Americans with performance - KOCO Oklahoma City | Native American Discrimination | Scoop.it
Raw Story
Governor's daughter outrages Native Americans with performance
KOCO Oklahoma City
“We had no prior knowledge of the performance content, and we oppose her use and depiction of American Indian artifacts and symbols.
Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

This, sadly, happens more often than not. But the fact that this woman is the governor of Oklahoma's daughter brought this story to the media. She wore the Native American shawl and mocked the Native American's - specifically the Choctaw -  rain dance. What she did was incredibly disrespectful and some Native Americans could believe that this display will bring bad luck. This woman needs to be spanked by her daddy - Raeanne

Honoring Our Mothers

Honoring Our Mothers | Native American Discrimination | Scoop.it
On Mother's Day each year, we honor our mothers. These are the women who gave birth to us, raised us and helped launch us as adults. Mothers throughout history have done these important jobs -- and so much more. They fought for the rights and privile...
Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

In honor of Mother's Day, Huffington Post posted an article about strong and famous mothers throughout American history. This entire article isn't about Native American's, but there is a passage about them. They mention Sacagawea, who lead and interpreted for Lewis and Clark. She was vital in the exhibition, pointing out which plants were safe to eat. At the end of the article, they insert a moving quote: "I believe the American Dream is one without gender or race. I still hope for and long for the day when people will be judged on their ability, rather than their background or their gender. We can't let go of that dream. America is a country of immigrants and our nation's success is built not on everybody being alike, but on our diversity." - Raeanne

Native American Discrimination Interview

Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

I found this video very relatable. One because it was a video, which made it a refreshing change to reading an article, and secondly, because it was done by high school students. Many of the students brought up Native American run casinos, which I thought was interesting. And many of the interviewed students did not know much about Native American culture. It was really neat that they interviewed a peer who was a Native American because he had experienced discrimination first hand. It was also very smart that they interviewed a teacher, who seemed to know more about Native American discrimination and shed new information to the interviewers and viewers - American

@Ally_Nuttall Found a few. http://t.co/3EpDqQvVz9 http://t.co/hZKsqDYUq0 https://t.co/wZeREVlksX http://t.co/X0PIqTcyRh
Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

I really enjoyed this article. It was really informative and kept my interest. It bought to reader's attention how completely outwardly discriminated transgender Native American's are. The survey was given to high school students and the reported results were higher among the minority's. This is because it combines two factors for discrimination - their Native American status and their transgendered status. This combination had devastating effects on the youth - Raeanne

Editorial Observer; The Black Seminole Indians Keep Fighting for Equality in the American West

Editorial Observer; The Black Seminole Indians Keep Fighting for Equality in the American West | Native American Discrimination | Scoop.it
The picture of Brent Staples posted on The Times's Web site shows a bearded man who is black to the naked eye. But what seems clear to the naked eye is rarely the full story when it comes to race. My great-great-grandfathers on both sides were white.
Raeanne LaBrosse's insight:

This article is quite interesting because it gives the reader a different view on Native American's. But the fact that they are fighting for basic human needs - food, medical, housing - saddens me. The government doesn't count Black Seminole's full Native Americans, and neither do other tribes - Raeanne
