Amna Shoaib // Rohingya Rape Victims Undergo Fresh Trauma As Babies Begin To Arrive - Carbonated.TV "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Rohingya Rape Victims Undergo Fresh Trauma As Babies Begin To Arrive - Carbonated.TV: Myanmar soldiers reportedly used rape as a tool of war to terrorize the Rohingya Muslim women.

Now, with several months passed since the beginning of the operation, the victims living in the refugee camps have reportedly begun to give birth to babies conceived after what has been described as methodic rape.

Some of these mothers are as young as 13.

The fate of these women and their newborn babies remains uncertain. Many of these young mothers were afraid at the prospect of giving birth to the child of a Burmese soldier, certain that the act of carrying the child alone would deem them traitors in the eyes of their people.

ARE YOU INDIAN OR ONKWEHONWEH? | Mohawk Nation News "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

ARE YOU INDIAN OR ONKWEHONWEH? | Mohawk Nation News: The Canadian government is a corporation which passed the Indian Act that defines who is an Indian. White women who married Indians became enrolled as Indians with Indian Affairs. Anyone not qualified who carried a fake Indian status card was criminally charged. Impersonation is a crime under the Criminal Code of Canada. Its fraud

The corporation of Canada suppressed our onkwehonweh [true natural people of turtle island] identity so the invaders could steal turtle island and our identity. The corporation created status Indians, forced English or French names on us, stole our children [which they still do] and placed us in POW camps called reserves. The Indian agent was the warden who watched our every move. To be free or get a job or marry out, we had to voluntarily or involuntarily enfranchise. In fact, our identity comes from creation when we live according to the kaianerekowa, the great good path.

Nicole Johnny was harrassed by security at Kardashians West Beauty Brand pop-up shop in Los Angeles.

Published July 8, 2018

LOS ANGELES  Out shopping with family on Saturday, June 30, Nicole Johnny (Navajo), an MBA student at Pepperdine University, encountered harrassment by security at Kim Kardashians West Beauty Brand pop-up shop in Los Angeles.

Johnny will receive her MBA next month from Pepperdine University and was visiting the area for a school related assignment when she and her family decided it was the perfect chance to attend the special KKW pop-up shop event.

After waiting in line for an extended period of time, just like every other attendee, Johnny prepared to step inside the shop upon what she believed to be her turn.

She asserts she was rudely stopped by one of the security guards at the doorway and told to Get back in line, or else he would call and have her deported.

Kim Kardashian

Johnny was shocked by his language, and when the guard asked her to confirm whether she was Mexican, she informed him that she was a Din woman from New Mexico. Following their initial exchange, Johnny was able to enter the store. Unfortunately, the same security guard approached her as she was sampling products and informed her that she would need to buy a...

Choctaw Gavin Clarkston Nominated by New Mexico GOP for Secretary of State "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Gavin Clarkson

Published July 8, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE  Gavin Clarkston, who served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Economic Development Indian Affairs in President Trumps Department of the Interior, was nominated for New Mexico secretary of state by his fellow Republicans on Saturday.

Clarkston is an enrolled tribal citizen of the Choctaw Nation.

Clarkston replaces attorney JoHanna Cox, the previous GOP nominee, who withdrew her name from consideration last month, citing family issues. She won the Republican Partys nomination on June 5, 2018, but withdrew her name from the race on June 13, 2018 after the Albuquerque Journal ran an article disclosing she has had three legal lawsuits filed against her in which she was accused of legal malpractice.

Clarkston lost in the GOP primary on June 5, 2018, coming in third in the 2nd Congressional race.  Clarkson resigned his post in the U.S. Interior Department as on December 29th, 2017 to launch his campaign for Congress.

In addition to holding both a BA and an MBA from Rice University, Clarkson is a cum laude graduate of the Harvard Law School where he was president of the Native American Law Students Association, a member of the Federalist Society, and the first tribal member to earn a doctorate from the Harvard Business School.

Making It Rain: Drought has Been Building for Centuries, and the Government Hasnt Helped "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Navajo Times | Donovan Quintero
A bleached horse skull lies on the sand of the Navajo Nation. Climatologists say the Nation is in a megadrought that started in 1996.

Published July 8, 2018

WINDOW ROCK  Centuries of droughts, lasting for decades at a time including the human-induced megadrought currently engulfing the Navajo Nation combined with a U.S. government policy enacted long before the Treaty of 1868, have taken their toll on the traditional Din way of living.

The megadrought, which climatologists say began in 1996, is a continuing climatic tradition of devastation that wiped out the Anasazi in 1350 and wiped out thousands of farmers in the Midwest in 1934.

While scientists have studied tree rings and ancient coral in the oceans to get a better understanding of what the weather was like in Din country for the last 1,000 years, Din have prayed about and stood by the teaching water is sacred.

That is what Elmer Begay and Bob Navajo Bob Sandoval say.

Begay, an executive staff assistant with the Begaye-Nez administration, and Sandoval, a hataii and a deejay at KTNN, say science will not make rain. Only by adhering to Din beliefs, through prayer and ceremonies, will rain come.

We used to make offerings and we regularly performed ceremonies, Begay said. The way they used it, they built a fire and they put water there. Then right where the medicine man sits they put a woven rug with sheep wool and they put herbs and precious stones there and would ride on their horses to a sacred place, do their offering and ride back. Thats how it was done.

The idea of going to the chapter house or Window Rock during a rainless season was not the first priority many years ago. They just knew which ceremonies needed to be done, Begay added.

The socialist case for the INS? "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Scott Jay // The socialist case for the INS?: The current situation cannot hold, but not because caging children is anathema to US politics. In fact there is a long tradition of caging children in the US and separating them from their parents, from the enslavement of Africans (whose family members were often sold and never heard from again) to the genocide of Native Americans, whose children were shipped off to boarding schools through the Twentieth Century. Continuing to today, migrant children from Central America were encaged under the Obama administration, and juvenile detention centers continue to encage mostly Black and Latino children. The most notorious recent example is that of Kalief Browder, a 16-year-old who was detained on New Yorks Rikers Island for three years after being accused of stealing a backpack, later committing suicide after his release.

The Kalief Browders that still sit in cages throughout the US will see no relief from whatever reforms come to deal with the current immigration crisis. And the reforms are likely to come. The legitimacy of the USs racist border policy depends on a change to this disastrously cruel policy. It will likely be changed in order to ensure that Mexican and Central American and other immigrants can continue to be policed and exploited and terrorized, just perhaps with a bit less visible cruelty toward the children.

Justin Rohrlich Adam Rawnsley // A Native American Tribe Has a $800 Million Contract to Run ICE Detention Centers "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

thedailybeast.com // A Native American Tribe Has a $800 Million Contract to Run ICE Detention Centers: 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 dollars off of the Trump administrations treatment of immigrant families.

The Ahtna, who have also run immigrant detention centers in New York, Florida, and Arizona in addition to Port Isabel, fall under the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) umbrella, and Ahtna, Inc. is an Alaska Native Regional Corporation established by Congress under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971.

Foreign Correspondents Association condemns intimidation of journalists in Sri Lanka | Tamil Guardian "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Foreign Correspondents Association condemns intimidation of journalists in Sri Lanka | Tamil Guardian: "The FCA, a professional body representing Colombo-based foreign media, appeals to all parties to take up any issue resulting from the publication of the report with the editors concerned as is the norm. We also urge the government of Sri Lanka to ensure the safety and security of all journalists in Sri Lanka, including colleagues visiting the island on reporting assignments," FCA said.

In a statement the editor of the New York Times, Martin Slackman condemned the intimidation.

It is unacceptable for journalists to be intimidated in this way. This action appears intended to silence critics and curb press freedoms, and ultimately deprive Sri Lankans of information in the public interest.

Trump Says He will Offer Sen. Warren $1 Million to Take DNA to Prove Her Indian Blood "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published July 7, 2018

GREAT FALLS, Mont.  During a typical tirade during his typical stump speech geared to fire up his base, on Thursday night Donald Trump ranted he would offer Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to give a $1 million to give to her favorite charity if she agrees to a DNA test to prove she is American Indian.

Trump resurrected his racial slur Pocahontas when referring to Sen. Warren. American Indian leaders have denounced Trumps continued usage of Pocahontas when referring to the senator.

Well take that little kit and say, we have to do it gently because we are in the Me Too generation, and we will very gently take that kit, slowly toss it to her, Trump said, adding that he would offer $1 million to charity if she took the test and it shows you are an Indian.

He told his base gathered in Great Falls, he thinks the senator would decline his offer.

The senator has heard all his Pocahontas before and chose not to respond on Thursday night. Instead, on Friday focused in on Trumps DNA statement and she referenced the report the Trump adminstration is conducting DNA tests to unite children taken from their parents at the southern border of the United States.

She tweeted this to the president:

While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order, Warren tweeted.

Is This What Solidarity Looks Like?: Report from AbolishICE Demo Dallas, TX - It's Going Down "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Is This What Solidarity Looks Like?: Report from AbolishICE Demo Dallas, TX - It's Going Down: Occupied Indigenous Land, so-called Dallas, Texas In solidarity with the growing wave of anti-ICE sentiment, a demonstration had been called for on June 30 at the local ICE field office by the local Democratic Socialists of America Chapter, DSA North Texas and The North Texas Dream Team. Framed as an event calling for the abolition of ICE, various crews decided to attend and meet new friends. The day was set to have multiple demos. The largest, happening at the same time in downtown, centered on reuniting families, was expected to draw thousands. While smaller, networking with other abolitionists seemed more attractive than large crowds. This report back will omit certain details due to pending legal cases.

The atmosphere was very positive as people mingled, chanted, danced and listened to speakers share their experiences. As the number of people started to grow, there was obvious communication between Department of Homeland Security Agents, Dallas Police Department and DSA NTX Leadership. As DSA leadership started to explain their political project, chalk was handed out, and people started writing on the concrete. Adults and children, documented and undocumented spread messages of love and rage in multi-color across the dark tarmac much to the annoyance of the Pigs and DSA politicians. After numerous visits from both DPD & DHS, and multiple attempts at silencing anyone who wasnt in line with DSA Leadership, everyone was asked to sit on the ground and listen to the very serious speech:). Obviously peeps werent having that, theyd rather sing, dance and have fun.
