  • How One Man Is Teaching America to Speak Navajo

    Every morning, students in the sprawling San Juan School District in Utah place their right hands over their hearts and recite a pledge. Despite two centuries of reasons not to honor the American flag, none of the students -- nearly all Native American -- have ever opted out. And they all recite the words in Navajo: "To the Sacredness of Our Flag. From the land of the 50 United States of America. We pledge our allegiance to God and our flag. It stands for hope and compassion. We stand united as People of all cultures on our beloved land. We...

    Tomahawk Liz is not a Cherokee. It’s only something that everyone who wasn’t a blind and stupid liberal had known for years. She’s just a white woman appropriating Native American culture for personal gain. She took a DNA test, which showed that she’s a whopping 1/1024th Native American. In other words, she’s not an American Indian, despite her shoddy family story about high cheekbones. She’s a fake who peddled a racial hoax, something that’s been hanging around her neck since 2012. Fordham pushed that Warren was the institution’s first woman of color.   Harvard also said Warren was a Native American. This is...

  • Democrats Know They Can Always Count on the Media

    This week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in preparation for a 2020 presidential run, decided to fight back against President Trump's brutal nickname for her: Pocahontas. Trump, you'll recall, labeled her Pocahontas because for years, she has claimed Native American ancestry. Not only that, she claimed repeatedly that her mother's Native American ancestry drove her parents to elope after her father's family refused to welcome her mother with open arms thanks to their bigotry. As it turns out, Warren could never provide any evidence of Native American ancestry -- even though she spent years labeling herself Native American while at the...

    The landmark law governing adoptions of Native American children, designed to keep them within Native American families, has been struck down as unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas. In an Oct. 4 ruling that has stunned Native American rights advocates, U.S. District Judge Reed OConnor found that the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 illegally gives Native American families preferential treatment in adoption proceedings for Native American children based on race, in violation of the Fifth Amendments equal protection guarantee. Additionally, OConnor ruled that the law violated the 10th Amendments federalism guarantees, specifically the so-called anti-commandeering principle established by...

    California 4th-graders have studied Golden State geography, people and history. Now, historians and Native American teachers are pushing to broaden that curriculum to include more on the culture and history of the states original inhabitants. For so many years, the story of California Indians has never really been part of classrooms, said Rose Borunda, an education professor at Sacramento State University and a coordinator of the California Indian History Curriculum Coalition. Our story has never been present. Its often sidestepped because its inconvenient. But its the truth, and students should learn it. Borunda, who is Native American, and her colleagues...

    A Native American burial site hidden for 7,000 years beneath the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida has been unearthed in what archaeologists are calling an "unprecedented" discovery. Florida Secretary of State, Ken Detzner, said in a news release on Wednesday the unmarked site near Venice, which measures roughly 0.75 acres, was first discovered by a diver in June 2016, who then reported possible human remains on the continental shelf to the Bureau of Archaeological Research. One of the stakes excavated at Manasota Key Offshore revealed a notch in its length. It is not yet known what the...
  • San Francisco Supervisors Rename Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day

    San Francisco supervisors Tuesday voted 10-1 to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples' Day despite a last-minute effort to delay the vote in response to objections from some members of the city's Italian-American community. Supervisor Aaron Peskin, who represents the North Beach neighborhood, where the annual parade on Columbus Day has long since been renamed as the Italian Heritage parade, asked the board to postpone a vote on the resolution after receiving a large number of emails from constituents. "I would like some time to figure out a path forward that works for our indigenous native peoples as well as...

    The indigenous peoples who populated the New World prior to the arrival of Europeans were arguably even worse than the hated white men who eventually conquered them, in terms of civility and wanton violence toward their enemies. Indeed, far from things like slavery and genocide being introduced to the continent by Columbus and his successors, such acts of atrocity were already occurring widely among the various warring tribes of natives, who routinely enslaved, tortured, ritualistically slaughtered and even feasted upon their defeated enemies. Thats right many indigenous peoples practiced cannibalism upon those they had conquered and oppressed. Is that...

    Tohono Oodham Nation Chairman Edward Manuel is determined to prevent President Trump's proposed border wall from carving a path through his tribe's lands a move which he said would separate members from much needed resources and disrupt the communitys way of life. The nation, which is about the size of Connecticut, is a federally recognized tribe that has land and members on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. Walls are made to keep animals in or out, walls cannot contain people, Manuel said. People are too intelligent. They can always find a way to get over the wall, under...

    Those who wish to aid Native Americans may want to think "outside the box," or at least outside the public school system. "Charter schools have played a growing role in Native peoples' efforts to gain control over their children's education," Tiffany Lee of the University of New Mexico and Teresa L. McCarty of UCLA wrote in a paper which appeared in the book, Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies. They looked at one in particular--the Native American Community Academy (NACA) in Albequerque. "At NACA, students take the state-required courses in math, English reading and writing, science and social studies," Lee and McCarty report....

    On Wednesday, President Donald J. Trump hosted a tribal, State, and local energy roundtable at the White House. He was joined by Governors Paul LePage, Kim Reynolds, Pete Ricketts, and Bill Walker, along with State and tribal leaders from around our great country. President Trump stated his Administrations intent to roll back harmful regulations that prevent State, local, and tribal communities from accessing vital energy resources. These regulations hinder economic growth that would create jobs and could be used to fund roads, schools, and infrastructure. It is President Trumps hope that the roundtable will allow for more cooperation between local...
  • Why Trump Is Still Calling Sen. Warren 'Pocahontas'

    President Donald Trump apparently knows more about Sen. Elizabeth Warrens background than almost all of her left-wing supporters.Last Thursday, at the NRA convention in Atlanta, Trump again went after the senior senator from Massachusetts, calling her Pocahontas.As usual, the alt-left twitter-verse went crazy, accusing Trump of racism for poking fun at her now-abandoned claims of Native-American ancestry. But the fact is, Warren did for a period of time in her adult life claim to be of Cherokee ancestry, during which time she was hired to tenured faculty positions at two Ivy League law schools, Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania....

    Bipartisan Review ^ | October 11, 2016 | Pearson McKinney
    It wasnt until Europeans took over North America that natives adopted the ideas of gender roles. For Native Americans, there was no set of rules that men and women had to abide by in order to be considered a normal member of their tribe. In fact, people who had both female and male characteristics were viewed as gifted by nature, and therefore, able to see both sides of everything. According to Indian Country Today, all native communities acknowledged the following gender roles: Female, male, Two Spirit female, Two Spirit male and Transgendered.

    BISMARCK, N.D. Federal and state officials announced plans Wednesday to accelerate cleanup at a camp in southern North Dakota that has housed hundreds and sometimes thousands of Dakota Access pipeline opponents. Officials fear the camp near the Cannonball River will soon flood due to warm weather and rapid snowmelt. They worry trash and debris left behind by people who have left in recent weeks might pollute the Missouri River and other nearby waterways. With the amount of people that have been out there and the amount of estimated waste and trash out there, there is a good chance it...

    A Standing Rock Sioux Tribe representative said the Dakota Access Pipeline controversy served as a springboard for discussion this week during a listening session with the Donald Trumps transition team and tribal leaders. Chad Harrison, member of the Standing Rock Tribal Council, was among tribal leaders from around the country who participated in a listening session Wednesday in Washington. While the event was not focused on Dakota Access, the Standing Rock Tribes lawsuit over the pipelines Missouri River crossing raised awareness of broader issues, such as the need for greater tribal consultation on infrastructure projects and other policy issues, Harrison...
