Native Americans Are Fighting a New but Familiar Battle at Standing Rock

A sea of thousands of Native Americans from over 200 indigenous nations has descended onto the Great Plains to stand at the forefront of a new but familiar battle against fossil fuels. Led by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (Hunkpapa Lakota Nation), these nations are fighting against the 1,172-mile Dakota Access pipeline, which would transport oil from the Bakken oil fields to pipelines in Illinois, and is set to come within a half-mile of the Standing Rock reservation, threatening its water supply. The fight is calling into question yet again...

'We belong to the river': Images of the Dakota Pipeline protesters

Echoes of the civil rights movement rang in my head when I heard that a security force guarding the Dakota Access Pipeline had unleashed dogs on protesters at a site considered sacred by North Dakota’s Standing Rock Sioux reservation. Since April, tribes and environmental groups from across the nation have gathered to fight the four-state, $3.8 billion oil pipeline. The pipeline would cross the Missouri River near the reservation. “We belong to the river,” a banner at the camp reads. A judge ruled on Sept. 9 that the project could...

See the Native Americans on the Front Lines of a Historic Protest

As currently proposed, the Dakota Access pipeline would move oil out of northwestern North Dakota, through a 30-inch pipe, and along a 1,200-mile path that cuts through both Dakotas, Iowa, and a stretch of Illinois before meeting another pipeline in the town of Patoka. It would carry nearly half a million barrels of domestic sweet crude oil every day, and the project’s builder, Energy Transfer Partners, says it will bring back money. The Texas-based company says the pipeline will create up to 12,000 jobs (the Army Corps of Engineers...

Minnesota's first Native American judge on the Supreme Court

While sometimes it seems like we have surpassed many of the "firsts" in society, last week there was a new — and significant — first. Anne McKeig, a Native American, took her spot on the Minnesota Supreme Court. This is significant progress for the face of justice in Minnesota and will stand long into the future. Gov. Mark Dayton announced he was naming McKeig to the state Supreme Court back in June. Last week she went through her "robing" ceremony and stepped into her new role as a member of the now majority-female Minnesota Supreme...

Jimi Hendrix was part American Indian? Program in Gardens enlightens

PALM BEACH GARDENS — American Indian performers and the struggles of their people have influenced most, if not all, forms of contemporary music. Most people just don’t realize it. Elvis Presley, for instance, had maternal relatives who were Cherokee Indian. So did legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Country singer Hank Williams had Muskogee Creek and Cherokee ancestry. Craig Harris, a musician and author of the newly published “Heartbeat, Warble and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music,” enlightened a crowd of a few dozen people...

Inside Wells Fargo, front-line employees describe immense pressure, few rewards

Carolyne Giancola knew how to take “no” for an answer, but she says her bosses didn’t. When she worked as lead teller at the Elliot Park branch of Wells Fargo in Minneapolis, if a regular customer said “no” three times in a row to the offer to sit down with a personal banker, she’d stop asking. That, according to her superiors, was a mistake. She could never stop pushing additional products on customers. http://www.startribune.com/inside-wells-fargo-front-line-employees-describe-immense-pressure-fe...

Still, the average price per gallon is a dime less than it was a year ago. http://www.startribune.com/gas-prices-up-4-cents-to-2-25...

Debate Night: Clinton, Trump set for high-stakes showdown

WASHINGTON — After months of tangling from afar, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will confront each other face-to-face for the first time in Monday night's presidential debate, laying out for voters their vastly different visions for the nation's future. The high-stakes showdown — the first of three presidential debates — comes as both candidates are viewed negatively by large numbers of Americans, with Democrat Clinton facing questions about her trustworthiness and Republican Trump struggling to convince many voters that he has the...

As Clinton focuses on debate, Trump says he'd champion women

ROANOKE, Va. — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is arguing that he'll do more to help women from the White House than Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. At the same time, he's taunting her over the infidelities of her husband. As Trump campaigned in the battleground state of Virginia, Clinton stayed close to home in New York while preparing for Monday night's opening debate. She was spotted at a Westchester hotel near her home in Chappaqua, but her campaign would not comment on whether she was holding practice sessions at the...

President Obama to Host Last Tribal Nations Conference with Leaders Pushing for "Meaningful" Tribal Consultation

WASHINGTON— When President Barack Obama reaches the podium at his final White House Tribal Nations Conference Monday afternoon, tribal leaders who acknowledge the Obama administration has brought positive change to Indian Country will be actively listening to hear what the president has to say about tribal consultation.

Tribal consultation is an important process to tribes across Indian Country. Adding...

Obama's Legacy On the Line: The Dakota Access Pipeline Could Tarnish His Place in History

Obama and Native nations have worked hard over eight years to create a special and healthy relationship during his tenure. Not a perfect relationship, but definitely special. This is really the first time in the United States’ history that a Presidential Administration has really tried to live up to its treaty obligations. That’s good. Yet, if he fails to act and kill this Dakota Access Pipeline—a pipeline that directly threatens Native treaty rights and also directly threatens Native children’s health and well-being—all of that...

Obama Wants Government Consultations with 567 Native American Tribes

In what is being hailed as a "historic" move, the Obama administration invited hundreds of Native American tribes on Friday to particpate in consultations in order to find solutions to protect and honor treaty rights and ensure meaningful consultations for any infrastructure project that may affect tribes. The U.S. Departments of the Army, Interior and Justice sent the invitation for government-to-government consultations following a Sept. 9 decision to halt any construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline on federal lands. The 1,168 mile...

Native American Tribes Take Pipeline Fight to Capitol Hill

WASHINGTON — Native American tribes took their fight to Washington on Thursday to stop development of a $3.7 billion oil pipeline, as Democrats in Congress urged the federal government to scrap construction permits and reconsider the project. Representative Raul Grijalva of Arizona, the senior Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, called on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers "to withdraw the existing permits for Dakota Access pipeline." He said the agency should then initiate a new, "transparent permitting process" that includes...

Obama seeks new relationship with tribes amid pipeline fight

The Obama administration announced two major actions on Friday to broaden dialogue between federal agencies and Indian tribes when it comes to protecting their lands and siting energy projects. First, the Interior Department scheduled a major round of meetings to sit down with tribes around the country to discuss how energy projects affect their communities, along with other federal decisions affecting their lands and treaties. The outreach comes as the administration struggles to deal with ongoing opposition in North Dakota over the Dakota...

Debora Juarez: Disenrollment is not sovereignty

Disenrollment is tantamount to relinquishment of my Birthright. But unlike relinquishment of parental rights, disenrollment is based on no fault of my own. Disenrollment is a decision to steal from me my own Creator-given DNA, my spark, my own gift. I understand. Because, as an Indian Mother who gave up an Indian Son, it feels eerily reminiscent of a day 39 years ago. http://lastrealindians.com/debora-juarez-disenrollment...
