Fond du Lac Tribal & Community College Joins Achieving the Dream Network "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College

Published September 18, 2017

CLOQUET, MINNESOTA  Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College has joined Achieving the Dream, a network of more than 220 colleges in 39 states dedicated to improving student success. As a Network institution, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will innovate to implement, align, and scale cutting edge reforms, work with Achieving the Dream coaches to build institutional capacity, and connect with peers to foster learning and share information.

This is a terrific opportunity, a new type of perfect storm combining positive energy, new ideas, and employee engagement, to work together to improve an already extraordinary college, said Dr. Anna Fellegy, vice president of academic affairs at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. Its important that we work from the inside out and not have an outside organization tell us what to do. We are our own best resource because we know ourselves well, we live our college mission, and we focus on our students.

Achieving the Dream offers a capacity-building framework and companion self-assessment that allow colleges to pinpoint strengths and areas for improvement across seven institutional capacities in areas such as leadership and vision, teaching and learning, and data and technology. Achieving the Dreams approach integrates and aligns existing college success efforts and offers valuable support in preparing for accreditation, fostering conversation about goals, and making bold, holistic institution-wide changes because initiatives that dont reach most of a colleges student body have not shown strong results.

Colleges that join the Achieving the Dream Network show an exceptional commitment to becoming the kind of institution that will lead the nation into the future, said Dr. Karen A. Stout, president and CEO of Achieving the Dream. The strength of local and regional economies, our ability to rebuild the middle class, and the possibility that a new generation will achieve their goals depends on community colleges.

A team from Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College and teams from the other colleges joining Achieving the Dream during 2017 met in Cleveland this past summer to launch their Achieving the Dream work, which will initially focus...

End in sight for India's notorious human safaris "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

The human safaris have risked exposing the Jarawa to diseases to which they have no immunity.
Survival

Notorious human safaris in Indias Andaman Islands may soon stop, after the authorities announced that a new sea route around the islands will soon open.

The new route will keep tourists off the infamous Andaman Trunk Road, which was built illegally through the forests of the isolated Jarawa tribe.

The road brings a daily invasion of hundreds of tourists into the heart of the Jarawa reserve, who treat the Jarawa like animals in a safari park.

One tourist described his trip: The journey through tribal reserve was like a safari ride as we were going amidst dense tropical rainforest and looking for wild animals, Jarawa tribals to be specific."

The Jarawa, like all recently contacted peoples, face catastrophe unless their land is protected.

The human safaris are also dangerous one Jarawa boy lost his arm after tourists threw food at him from a moving vehicle.

In 2002 Indias Supreme Court ordered the road closed, but it has remained open.

Survival International led a global campaign against the human safaris, calling for a boycott of the Andaman tourist industry until they came to an end. Nearly 17,000 people from around the world pledged not to holiday in the islands in protest.

The boycott will be called off as soon as the Andaman government agrees to ensure that tourists are no longer able to use the road.

U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Now Beyond Reclamation "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Water shortages in the Klamath Basin have caused tensions for decades.
Jes Burns, OPB/EarthFix

Published September 18, 2017

WASHINGTON Three recent federal audits have found the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation misspending more than $100 million in funds but the agency has not committed to any meaningful reforms nor to punishing any responsible officials, according to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). The latest audit, last week, identified $84.8 million in improper Bureau of Reclamation payments to the State of California for its controversial Delta Tunnel Project. Despite this finding, the Bureau has no stated plans to recover even a penny.

Three recent critical audits arose from reports by Reclamations own employees represented by PEER. In the latest report on Friday, the Inspector General (IG) for the U.S. Department of Interior concluded that Reclamation illegally siphoned off funds to benefit fish and wildlife for the Delta Tunnel, a project to trans-ship vast quantities of freshwater from the Sacramento River and Delta to the south. This project does not benefit fish and wildlife just the opposite but will principally benefit south-state irrigators.

This is the third recent scathing report on Reclamation misappropriations

  • In late August, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel concluded that Reclamation illegally gave $32 million to Klamath irrigators, again misusing funds earmarked for protecting fish and wildlife. This ruling validated an earlier IG report confirming whistleblower disclosures; and
  • In October, the IG found that Reclamation never collected repayment of millions of dollars of costs incurred to design, construct, and operate and maintain new head gates and fish screens within the Klamath Project. These gates and screens are supposed to keep federally protected fish in the river and out of the Klamath project irrigation canals.

At Reclamation, even massive misappropriation means never having to say you are sorry, stated PEER Senior Counsel Paula Dinerstein, noting that all three cases arose out of one Reclamation office the Mid-Pacific Region. Reclamations posture of denying wrongdoing but promising not to do it again merely suggests it will seek out other shady ruses rather than genuinely reform its grant pr...

NIMBYS Vs.YIMBYS Battling over Mother Earth "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Guest Commentary

Published September 18, 2017

Everywhere along the shores of Planet Earth: the constant pressures of endless development, population explosion, climate breakdown, civic breakdown, the loss of rootedness and deep connection to whatever place on our Mother Earth, continue to escalate a pitched battle among the people; what one side claims is Regression, the other side deems is Progress. Its the NIMBYS versus the YIMBYS. One could argue that they represent two basic human personality-types in the world; both of whom are as if total alien strangers to the other.

The NIMBYS are the new Indians, hated, feared and maligned by the YIMBYS as much as were the real Indians of old for the obstacle they represent to the YIMBY Civilizations juggernaut journey down through time and space that continues to crush or push off to the side any and all who ever dare to stand in its way. For the NIMBYS to try to defend themselves, their way of life and Mother Earth against the juggernaut, it always has been like trying to stop a Tsunami wave with a wall made of gossamer-thin tissue paper; that Tsunami part and parcel of a monstrous conspiracy committed by an entire civilizations way of seeing and being. To deflect its juggernaut even a few degrees, let alone turn it around 180 degrees, will require the mightiest of Herculean efforts.

Oh, oh!, warns the YIMBY, I can hear another Luddite harangue coming from one of those NIMBY Nut Cases complaining again about endless development and the constant attempt to grow the economy as non-solutions.

If it was only that simple! For years NIMBYS have been held in contempt for speaking out in favor of preserving their way of life from being constantly slathered by the construction of so much unimaginative, non-humanistic, nature-less settings and environments to house the crunch of uncontrolled over-population, refugees and immigrants needlessly caused by mankinds unquenchable desire for ever-mounting warfare and violence throughout the world; a process that only leads to more and more multi-cultural-less realities, devoid of any common cultural-spiritual frames of reference, that continue to spread like terminal cancer. The NIMBYS rear-guard resistance movement is a broad-based one that applies, as well, to the opposition against oil pipelines...

10th ANNIVERSARY OF THE UN DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES - NO REASON FOR CANADA TO CELEBRATE!

 

(Turtle Island/Tuesday September 12, 2017) September 13th 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), a universal legal framework, which acknowledges the inherent collective human rights of the approximately 370 million Indigenous Peoples worldwide. Whilst a few celebrations of this anniversary are taking place in Canada organized together with establishment organizations who do not represent the grassroots Indigenous Peoples who are the proper title and rights holders, it is questionable, if the country has anything to celebrate about. According to the latest periodic report of the UN Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (UN CERD), Indigenous Peoples in Canada are still facing systematic racial discrimination in the enjoyment of their inherent rights.

IHS is Making Progress in Addressing GAO Recommendations "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Guest Commentary

Rear Adm. Michael D. Weahkee, Acting Director, Indian Health Service

I was invited to testify this week before the United States Senate Committee on Indian Affairs at a hearing on High Risk Indian Programs: Progress and Efforts in Addressing GAOs Recommendations.

At this important hearing, I reported on the progress we have made since the Committees last hearing on the GAO High Risk List in May 2017. The Indian Health Service, and the Department of Health and Human Services, are steadfastly committed to overcoming the longstanding systemic challenges that have hindered our efforts to provide quality health care to American Indians and Alaska Natives. I was pleased to report during the hearing that our concerted efforts are producing results and that we are committed to press forward with improvements.

At IHS, we are committed to delivering excellent patient care and will do what is necessary to address the GAOs recommendations.

As I explained in testimony, IHS developed a quality framework to guide us in planning, developing and implementing quality-focused, sustainable compliance programs at all of our hospitals and clinics.  In less than a year, we have updated governing board bylaws, acquired a credentialing software system, and developed a standard patient experience survey.

Last month, we also established new agency-wide patient wait time standards.  Wait times are an important measure of the patient experience. IHS-operated service units are collecting and tracking this data to improve patient care and services. We will use the data collected to continually improve patient experience and access to care at direct service sites.

Patient wait times will be one of 14 metrics inputted into a new performance a...

Indian Affairs Committee Advances Bipartisan Bill to Combat Native American Veteran Homelessness "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published September 17, 2017

WASHINGTON Senators John Hoeven (R-ND) and Tom Udall (D-NM), chairman and vice chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, and Senators Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Jon Tester (D-MT), chairman and ranking member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, welcomed the passage of their bipartisan legislation to address Native American veteran homelessness.

The Tribal HUD-VASH Act, introduced by Senator Tester, will renew a joint tribal housing initiative between the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program, which provides rental and housing assistance to homeless and at-risk homeless veterans in Indian Country.

Today, the committee took an important step forward to help improve the quality of life for Native Americans who courageously served our country,Hoeven said. American Indians have served in our armed forces in higher numbers than any other ethnic group. This bill extends vital resources to our Native American veterans and increases their access to safe, quality housing. I am glad to work with my colleagues in the Senate to quickly pass this bipartisan bill.

Native Americans serve our nation in the military in greater numbers per capita than any other ethnic group and it is critical that this country live up to the promise it made to Native veterans, Tester said.  Without rooves over our heads, it is hard to live productive and healthy lives. This bipartisan bill is important because it provides tribes with resources to ensure that every Native American veteran has access to affordable housing.

Homelessness among Native American veterans is simply unacceptable, Udall said. We owe a solemn debt to these men and women who have given so much in service to our country. Im proud to join in this bipartisan effort to ensure Native veterans in Indian Country have access to safe and affordable housing, and Ill keep fighting to see this crucial legislation become law.

We must always take care of our service members who sacrificed so much for us, Isakson said. I am pleased this bipartisan effort to continue access to housing and support for Native American veterans is moving forward.

Navajo Nation May be Ready to Allow Genetic Research "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published September 17, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE After 15 years, it seems the Navajo Nations opinion on allowing genetic research on the reservation has evolved. Navajo leaders, researchers, tribal members and even medicine men are pretty much in consensus to allow genetic research on the Navajo Nation.

During the last days of August, Navajo Nation policy makers, researchers and community members came together at the Tribal Data Sharing & Genetics Policy Development Workshop in Albuquerque to talk about lifting the 2002 moratorium on genetic research that was established on the reservation in lieu of a comprehensive policy.

I have a lot of concerns even though I support (lifting the ban) overall, said Janene Yazzie, the CEO of Sixth World Solutions, pretty much summing up the feelings of the gathered Din. The moratorium has been a recurring barrier to research on the Navajo Nation especially when it comes to cancer and the effects of uranium.

One of those studies that came up against the ban was the Navajo Birth Cohort Study that has been looking into the effects of uranium exposure on expectant mothers and later their children. Yazzie, who is from Lupton, Arizona, was a participant in that study.

When I became pregnant, I knew the importance of the study and to have my home and pregnancy assessed, Yazzie said. This is because Yazzie has worked for years as a community organizer to bring to light how extractive industries have negatively affected the health of Navajo Nation citizens.

Some of the activities around mining and development of resources has contaminated the local environment, Yazzie said. This is suspected to have had impacts on public health, but what is hard for communities is that the burden is put on us to prove those linkages.

Native Americans in Philanthropy: Second Grant Cycle for Native Youth Organizing "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published September 16, 2017

MINNEAPOLIS  We are living in a pivotal moment for youth-led movements fighting state-sanctioned violence and racism. Across the country from Ferguson, to Standing Rock, to Charlottesville young people are playing leading roles in social justice movements that advance a vision for a just society. They are working across cultures and across issues to stand in solidarity against our countrys legacy of genocide, slavery and xenophobia that lives on in systems that continue today. Now is a critical moment to support Native young people who are showing a readiness to organize in building lasting movements for social change.

The NAP #GenIndigenous Response Fund provides grants up to $5,000 to youth organizing groups responding to current moments in ways that build long-term power for Native youth. Housed at The Minneapolis Foundation, this fund provides grants to organizations playing leadership roles in their local communities while considering efforts to support the long term engagement of youth leaders in advocacy efforts. We believe that youth engagement, organizing and leadership is central to this movement moment, therefore we will prioritize funding efforts that are Native and youth led.

NEW YORK  The Peruvian government is neglecting the health of hundreds of Indigenous people whose only sources of water are contaminated by toxic metals and who lack access to adequate health care, Amnesty International said in a new investigation published on Wednesday, September 13, 2017.

A Toxic State reveals how the Peruvian government has failed to provide adequate healthcare for Indigenous communities in Cuninico and Espinar, in the countrys Amazonian and Andean regions, respectively. Studies found that their only sources of fresh water were contaminated with toxic metals harmful to human health.

For decades, Indigenous Peoples across Peru have been treated like second class citizens, said Salil Shetty, Secretary General at Amnesty International.
