    An official in Barack Obama’s White House resigned in 2016 because he was arrested for taking pictures up women’s skirts on DC Metrorail cars, according to the Daily Mail. The official, William Mendoza, was the executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education until he resigned in November 2016. Mendoza was convicted after pleading guilty in January 2017 to attempted voyeurism, a misdemeanor. According to the Daily Mail, he used his government-issued iPhone — during work hours — to take the photos and resigned as the Department of Education was readying an investigation into...
  • A Native American Tribe Runs Detention Centers for ICE

    The Port Isabel Detention Center in Los Fresnos, Texas, is currently holding many of the parents who have been separated from their kids. But while PIDC is owned by ICE, its guards are provided by a subsidiary of Ahtna, Inc., a portfolio of businesses operated by the Ahtna, a federally recognized Alaska Native people. Ahtna, Inc. is one of a number of companies profiting off of the deportation of undocumented immigrants from the United States. Previous reporting by The Daily Beast has revealed that the federal government currently employs the services of several companies and charities bringing in millions of...
  • Donald Trump Jr. bets Elizabeth Warren $10,000 that Kimberly Guilfoyle is 'more Native American'

    Never mind Elizabeth Warren — President Trump could soon have a “Pocahontas” in his own family. And Donald Trump Jr. wants to make a sport of it. In a segment on Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” the anchors took the popular “23 and Me” DNA tests to determine their ancestry. According to the tests, 6.1 percent of Kimberly Guilfoyle’s DNA is “East Asian and Native American,” with 5.3 percent definitely Native American and the rest possibly either. The posting of the results by the conservative site Twitchy prompted the presidential son, who has been widely reported as dating Ms. Guilfoyle,...
  • It's time to stop saying the words 'Native Americans'

    06/17/2018 9:02:46 AM PDT · by rktman · 98 replies ^ | 6/17/2018 | Ed Straker
    "Native American" is an offensive term, not to the people who it is used to describe, but everyone else born in the United States. The term "Native American" implies the rest of us aren't Native American. Most Americans are in fact native, meaning we were born here or to American parents. Having a group of Americans called "Native Americans" seems to delegitimize the rest of us, putting us on a lower moral grounds than the "Natives". The term "Native Americans" is also ridiculous in that ancestors of these individuals were present before America was formed.

    A friend put me onto an excellent review of the movie Wind River, now on Netflix, about life and crime among the Arapaho Indians on the Wind River Reservation. The movie realistically depicts life on most any Indian reservation today – the poverty, the solitude, the despair. The murders in the movie were committed by drunken whites, but they could have been Indians or Latinos or whatever. For over a decade, I taught high school on the Navajo Reservation, where this movie could have been situated just as honestly. These people live with violence. The guy in Wind River laid...
  • Archaeology: Serpent Mound might depict a creation story

    A new interpretation of Serpent Mound, based on American Indian mythic stories portrayed in a remarkable series of pictographs from Picture Cave in Missouri, is offered by James Duncan, Carol Diaz-Granados, Tod Frolking and me in a paper published online last month in the Cambridge Archaeological Journal. We argue that images of serpents and other supernatural beings on the walls of Picture Cave help us make sense of those parts of Serpent Mound that weren't restored. One group of pictographs shows a serpent facing a humanoid female with her legs spread apart next to a large oval that might be...
  • Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears

    For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American. After researching her story, it is obvious that her “family lore” is just fiction. Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee–the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837. These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in...

    The other day President Trump referred jokingly, yet again, to Senator Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas", and as a result is even more totally racey-racey-racist than he was the week before. If you're finding this all a bit hard to follow, relax: a white grade-school teacher pretends to be black, that's totally racist and you should denounce him as such immediately; But if a white professor pretends to be Harvard Law School's "first woman of color" and you point it out, then you're the racist. Got that? It's easy when you know how: If a Victoria's Secret model wears lingerie "inspired...

Photo by Paul NobleEditor’s note: This story originally ran in 2013 You wouldn’t expect to encounter Pocahontas in Palm Beach, but you have if you’ve met Debbie “White Dove” Porreco, a Native-American princess after whom Pocahontas is often modeled in the media. “Sometimes when I’m dining at Mar-a-Lago, I think to myself, ‘You’ve come a long way from that Indian reservation you started in,” she said. “Pocahontas had dreams and went to England. My dreams brought me to Palm Beach.” That dream would have seemed far away...

    When President Donald Trump casually invoked "Pocahontas" during a ceremony honoring Native Americans on Monday, Washington's political class swiftly went into its familiar and usually unfulfilling ritual of trying to decipher his deeper intentions. Was he attempting to purposefully distract media coverage away from the White House's skirmish with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? Was he simply reaching for cheap levity among a group he was largely unfamiliar with? Or did he view it as an irresistible opportunity to strike at a reoccurring political nemesis who he views as a gathering threat to his re-election prospects in 2020? The president...

    At a Navajo veterans’ ceremony over the weekend, President Trump made a brief joke at Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren’s expense, calling her "Pocahontas," that left the media practically foaming at the mouth. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Matthew Dowd and Meghan McCain perhaps had the most overdramatic analysis of the comment, slamming it as a “gross” “attack” and a “racial slur,” on Good Morning America. Anchor George Stephanopoulos hyped that “the president raised a lot of eyebrows” with this comment, inviting “Republican” analysts Meghan McCain and Matthew Dowd to bash Trump. After playing the video clip of Trump saying Warren is known...

    At Monday’s White House press briefing, Sarah Sanders was asked about the comments and if she thought they were offensive. Sanders said: “I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career.” SNIP Reporter and writer Joshua Green met Thomas Begay, one of the code talkers honored Monday, on his way out of Washington, D.C. Green asked him about the event. Begay said he was “puzzled” about the comment but not offended. Then Begay dropped a very non safe-space one liner: “The Marines made us yell ‘Geronimo’ when we jumped out of...

    On Monday, President Donald Trump held a White House event, ostensibly honoring the Code Talkers. The Code Talkers have been honored by many American politicians in the last two decades, most notably with the presentation of Congressional Gold Medals to surviving soldiers and their families by member of the U.S. Congress in 2013. My tribe, the Ho-Chunk Nation, sent a delegation including our President, Vice President and Traditional Chief, and I was proud to watch that presentation online, and to see the Code Talkers and their families. So one might think that an event in the White House to further...

    Washington Post ^ | November 28, 2017 | Eli Rosenberg
    The prominent placement of an Andrew Jackson portrait during an event meant to honor a group of Native Americans at the Oval Office on Monday has raised questions about the White House’s message. Jackson is known for his harsh treatment of Native Americans as president, famously signing the Indian Removal Act, which led to thousands of Native American deaths as tens of thousands were forced to relocate. Some observers thought the juxtaposition of his portrait during the event with the stated purpose of honoring three Navajo code talkers was strange. [Snip] The Cherokees called Jackson "Indian killer"; the Creek called...

    President Trump referred to Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” at a ceremony honoring Navajo code talkers on Monday. Trump has referred to the senator from Massachusetts often by that name, a reference to Warren’s dodgy history claiming native American heritage. “I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said. “Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time, longer than you, they call her Pocahontas!” Warren responded to the President, saying “It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) railed against President Trump for using a "racial slur" after he cracked a "Pocahontas" joke during a Monday event with Native American veterans. "It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur," Warren said in an interview on MSNBC after Trump referred to her as "Pocahontas" at an event honoring Navaho "code talkers" who served in World War II.
