Chief Black Kettle:

I want you to give all these chiefs of the soldiers here to understand that we are for peace, and that we have made peace, that we may not be mistaken by them for enemies.

Jacqueline Keeler's curator insight, December 1, 2013 2:54 AM

Since June of 2013 the Elsipogtog First Nation community has gathered on Highway 11 to protest the seismic testing being conducted by a subsidiary of Houston-based Southwestern Energy Co. Since that time, several violent clashes between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and FN people have erupted. All the while, APTN Journalist Ossie Michelin has been there to document these moments in history.


On an interview on the Native Trailblazers Radioshow, Michelin, of mixed Inuit heritage from Labrador in northeastern Canada, shared his experiences during his months on the ground—some good, some bad, but all of them life changing.

Great to see the end of this epic struggle - I remember going to the first  meeting of anthropologists to work out strategy for this with a bunch of lawyers.

Jacqueline Keeler's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:57 AM

Some tribes refer to PTSD as a wounding of the soul, Telonidis said. Part of the veteran’s spirit is still on the battlefield, and he said the tribes have traditions that can heal his or her heart.

 

“What they’re trying to do is bring their spirit home,” Telonidis told the Elko Daily Free Press.

Jacqueline Keeler's curator insight, December 2, 2013 10:51 AM

Now, the National Congress of American Indians has joined in the opposition, issuing a video that consists of leaders from seven different tribes:  Cathy Abramson, Councilmember, Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians; Al Goozmer, President, Tyonek Native Village of Alaska; Brian Cladoosby, Chairman, Swinomish Indian Tribal Community and President, NCAI; Edwina Butler Wolfe, Governor, Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma; Leander McDonald, Tribal Chairman, Spirit Lake Tribe; Dennis Welsh, Chairman, Colorado River Indian Tribes; Candace Bossard, Councilmember, Ponca Tribe of Nebraska.

 

We’ll now wait for the supporters of the name to suggest that one or more of these people aren’t real Native Americans, or that the name shouldn’t be changed until all or most Native Americans say that they are offended by the term.

 

Or maybe until the team trots out some more World War II code talkers for a contrived in-game honor.
