Pala Watch: From Where to From There Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Pala Watch: From Where to From There: [palawatch.com] In May of 1903 the Cupeno were forced off their ancestral land and on to land at Pala along with the other villages except San Felipe. In September of 1903 the San Felipe who had their own separate court case to retain title to their land, lost their battle, and were also forced on to Pala. At the same time other Mission Indians showed up, namely Cahuilla, as the land at Pala was also purchased for landless or homeless Indians.

So who lives at Pala? A mix of various tribes including the Cupeno, Luise�o, Iipai, Cahuilla, and Yaqui. Who is from there? Old Pala Luise�o are from there. Everyone else was forced there. How many generations need to pass before everyone else becomes from there? Some people apparently think they are more from there than others even though none of them are really from there to begin with. How do we get to from where to from there?

ReachBeyond / Spearing Attack in Ecuador’s Jungle Leaves Waorani Man Dead, Woman Wounded Aboriginal News Group Newswire

ReachBeyond: The couple are members of the Waorani indigenous group. No one was apprehended, but other Waorani denounced one of the two jungle tribes that remain in voluntary isolation—the Tagaeri and the Taromenane*. While authorities used more guarded language such as spearing “presumably by” the Taromenane, Waorani leader Alicia Cahuiya accused the Taromenane of carrying out the attack.

Cordero reported that an army helicopter evacuated the woman (also referred to as Onenca Tega and in some reports as Baihua’s wife) to a hospital in nearby Orellana province. Ecuadorian authorities referred to treatment of her for “spear wounds to her ribs and legs” but did not elaborate; another report listed her condition as stable.

Bringing Native American Stories to a National Audience - Nieman Reports Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Bringing Native American Stories to a National Audience - Nieman Reports: The killing of Allen Locke on that cold night just before Christmas in 2014 got little attention outside Rapid City. Nor, in the year or so since, has there been much widespread coverage of the killings of Paul Castaway, shot in Denver in July by police who said he was threatening his mother, though she argues that deadly force was unnecessary in this incident; William J. Dick III, a 28-year-old suspected armed robber who died in Washington State after a U.S. Forest Service agent shocked him with a Taser; or Larry Kobuk, 33, who died after being restrained by officers booking him into the Anchorage Correctional Complex on charges that he stole a car and drove it with a suspended license.

All of these people were Native Americans.

Maira Kalman's LOOKING AT LINCOLN American Indians in Children's Literature (AICL)

With President's Day upon us, people are pulling out picture books about Lincoln, like Maira Kalman's Looking at Lincoln. The child in the book reveres Lincoln. Most Americans do, I think, but what we know about him is... incomplete.

What do you know about Lincoln and Native peoples?

Most people do not know that he issued an order for the mass execution of 38 Dakota men. It was the largest mass execution in the United States. That is not included in Kalman's book.

Is mass execution not age appropriate? Violence is ok, as these pages demonstrate.

One page shows a uniform with a bullet hole in it:



And there's a page showing a numbered grave:



And Kalman includes a page about Lincoln's assassination:




So.... what to ma...
