'I felt unsafe': Indigenous safe-ride service for women can't keep up with need | CBC News "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Kelly Geraldine Malone The Canadian Press // 'I felt unsafe': Indigenous safe-ride service for women can't keep up with need | CBC News: Ikwe co-director Christine Brouzes was also an early volunteer after facilitating a roundtable for the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Brouzes left that meeting feeling helpless.

"I heard about Ikwe from a friend and a light bulb went off. I thought this is what I can do," Brouzes said. "I felt that if I could help keep one woman safe by providing a safe transportation ride for her, then that would be my tiny pebble in the river to help this situation."

Ikwe which means woman in the Anishinaabemowin language has now provided more than 46,000 rides. The Facebook-based group has more than 15,600 members and 43 drivers.

Tsilhqotin move to ban non-native moose hunting "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

mooseby Monica Lamb-Yorski, Williams Lake Tribune, July 12, 2018

The Tsilhqotin National Government (TNG) will be attempting to ban Limited Entry Hunt (LEH) licenses for moose hunting in its territory this fall.

TNG tribal chair Chief Joe Alphonse said during an emergency meeting held Tuesday at Tlesqox (Riske Creek), he received full endorsement from leadership to pursue a legal challenge against the LEH allocations for 2018.

We just had a big nation meeting and weve been given the green light to begin another legal challenge against the province, he told the Tribune Wednesday. This time we are going to be challenging their decision-making process.

Leadership at the meeting also agreed by consensus to enact an emergency Tsilhqotin law to protect moose populations by banning LEH in the territory, effectively restricting all non-First Nations from hunting moose.

A draft law was reviewed and approved for enactment in the near future.

Alphonse said four years ago the Tsilhqotin began arguing with the province, and said with the 2017 wildfires the situation was made even more dire because so many more areas have been opened up by the fires and the fireguards that were put in.

They finally cancelled the moose hunting last year, when I threatened road blocks, but this year they are going ahead, Alphonse said. Theres going to be a show-down over moose this year. We will look for ways that are non-viole...

When Papa was lynched - Livemint: It was a communal revenge killinga group of Hindus wanted to avenge the murder of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker Deepak Rao, 31 (we visited the home of the unmarried RSS worker who lived with his mother and hearing-impaired brother and who was murdered over a trivial dispute about erecting political buntings), and Bashir was a random Muslim target. Both men were killed on the same day.

Coastal Karnataka has its own peculiar brand of communal revenge murdersHindu kills Muslim kills Hindu kills Muslimand Imraz could easily have been Isha, but this story already has more symmetry than most real life tales.

Unlike Hussainabba, Bashir kept his children away from politics. He was always the first to stay away from any controversy. When anything happened, he would call family members and say, be careful, stay at home, says Imraz, whose nails are either bitten by habit or grief, I didnt ask. When someone asks for her take on the current political climate, she says her father always sheltered her from such things.

Published July 13, 2018

EAGLE BUTTE, S.D.   The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe has declared a disaster following storms that swept the reservation from 29 June 2018 to 3 July 2018. The storms slammed into the area following normal storm alerts. The storms were more violent than anticipated however, as many reservation residents went without power for multiple days while many lost structures.

Hail from the storms resulted in the loss of vegetation in large tracts of land rendering grazing units unusable and even destroying residences. Miles of power lines had to be repaired before power was fully restored. This resulted in the loss of food for many residents that live in remote areas and usually purchase large quantities of food to minimize the number of trips over long distances.

Several large structures were totally destroyed as straight-line winds tore through pole barns and flattened grain bins. Many large feeders and round bales were taken by the winds and most did not stop until they found a creek or pond.

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe has instituted a command center for residents to contact with information or questions regarding the Tribal response. Storm Damage Assessment forms have been generated to assist in getting help to residences that have been damaged during the storms.

Chairman Frazier stated, These storms crippled many of our residents homes for days and some have lost their homes altogether. Declaring a disaster will assist both the Tribe and individuals get additional resources to assist in recovering from these storms.

First Nations Elders Talk About Healthy Medication Use Through Indigenous Storytelling "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published July 13, 2018

WEST VANCOUVER, British Columbia  An Indigenous Storytelling project, Coyotes Food Medicines, was launched today in front of an audience of 4,000 Elders at the British Columbia (BC) Elders Gathering to encourage conversations about wellness and how to manage medications for a healthy life. Secwepemc Elders created the Coyotes Food Medicines story, using traditional knowledge and humour to raise awareness of the issue of multiple medications and their potential impact on health.

The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA), Shared Cares Polypharmacy Risk Reduction Initiative (a partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC government), and Interior Health worked with Elders, initiating conversations that led to the creation of the Coyote story. During one of these conversations, Secwepemc Elder Jean William shared her impressions, In the past, our Elders didnt take lots of medication, mostly just aspirin. But now cupboards look like pharmacy shelves.

One of the most important and yet often overlooked risks to wellness is use of multiple medications. There is a point where taking multiple medications known as polypharmacy, can actually make individuals feel sicker, where the risks of medications can outweigh the benefits.

With the launch of the project, were opening up a conversation with Indigenous populations, guided by Elders to promote and enhance medicine management and wellness, said Health Minister Adrian Dix. With the Coyotes Food Medicines project, our partners are showing how health-care information can be interesting, engaging and culturally respectful.

The Coyotes Food Medicines project aims to promote healthy conversations between patients and providerssuch as doctors, nurses and pharmaciststo help prevent side effects and adverse events, such as falls and injuries, from taking multiple medications.

When Elders are able to guide the creation of health and wellness resources for them and their peers, the project will be more meaningful and successful, said Grand Chief Doug Kelly, Chair of the First Nations Health Council. Coyotes Food Medicines shares traditional knowledge and builds on the teachings of our ancestors to face the health issues of today.

This project shows how respecting culture and involving communities can improve health, sa...

Incitement to #Genocide in International Law "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Incitement to Genocide in International Law: The trial of leading German officials before the International Military Tribunal (IMT), the best known of the postwar war crimes trials, formally opened in Nuremberg on November 20, 1945, only six and a half months after Germany surrendered. Among the 24 defendants was Julius Streicher, publisher of the antisemitic German weekly Der Strmer. On October 1, 1946, the IMT convicted Streicher of crimes against humanity in connection with his incitement to the mass murder of Europe's Jewish population. Streicher was executed for his crimes. At the time of the IMT, incitement to murder and extermination was considered a form of persecution on political and racial grounds, punishable as a crime against humanity. By holding one of Nazi Germanys chief propagandists responsible as an accomplice for the destruction of the European Jews, Streichers conviction established a precedent-setting link between inflammatory speech and criminal action in international law. Soon after the IMT had completed its mission, direct and public incitement to commit genocide became a crime under international law.
