8 Songs by Native American Rappers That Deserve to Be Heard

When hip-hop was born in the Bronx in the 1970s, it offered an unprecedented and powerful voice for the voiceless. The movement has since gone global, lending a vocabulary to people struggling for liberty and safety in places as far-reaching as Palestine, China and Russia. Hip-hop still has work to do in the States, though, and nowhere do hip-hop's stories of liberation and resistance resonate with greater urgency than with the country's...

LOCAL NURSING HOMES, BELTRAMI COUNTY TO BENEFIT UNDER HOUSE HEALTH FINANCE PROPOSAL

Recently the House approved a health and human services finance...

Congressional budget plan requires deep cuts in Indian programs

Budget targets $246 million below last year’s committee levels, says Democrat on House Interior Appropriations. House and Senate negotiators have reached a deal on a budget resolution. That agreement then would go to each House for a vote. (An outcome that is not certain.) But, if it passes, it would be the first budget enacted by Congress in six years. Let’s be clear about this plan: It would require deep spending cuts in federal Indian...
