Congressman Gosar Claims Oak Flat Has Never Been a Sacred Site... Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Congressman Gosar Claims Oak Flat Has Never Been a Sacred Site, Wants to Kick Out Apache Stronghold Protesters | The Range: The Tucson Weekly's Daily Dispatch | Tucson Weekly: In a press release, Gosar alleges Oak Flat has never been a sacred site. And, according to a letter by former chairman of the San Carlos Apache Nation and organizer of the group Apache Stronghold Wendsler Nosie, Sr., Gosar is pressuring the National Forest Service to kick out members of the Apache Stronghold, as well as allies, who have occupied the area since the site was sold out to the mining company.

Gosar says in a press release that he is disappointed Oak Flat was listed in the National Register of Historic Places, "despite multiple bipartisan requests to withdraw the fundamentally-flawed nomination."

'I've been an open book': NDP's Wab Kinew responds to Twitter controversy - Manitoba - CBC News Aboriginal News Group Newswire

'I've been an open book': NDP's Wab Kinew responds to Twitter controversy - Manitoba - CBC News: Social media and the history it holds of a person's views are making all politicians second-guess what they might have said, Bernier said. It's created a whole new phenomenon.

"I've seen tweets from our own candidates that could be described as vulgar and angry, but they are always in defense of good; they are always fighting for someone vulnerable," Bernier said.

"But there is nothing redeeming or positive in any of [Kinew's] tweets."

"I haven't heard him apologize to the children of Attawapiskat, and I haven't heard him apologize to women for his incredibly sexist remarks," Bernier said.

Decrepit fish camps built on broken promises | Pacific Northwest News - Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Decrepit fish camps built on broken promises | Pacific Northwest News -: Decades ago, the federal government wiped out thriving Native American settlements along the Columbia River to make way for three dams. The villages were later replaced with 31 designated encampments, like the one in Underwood, where Jackson's parents located after their ancestral lands had flooded.

The Oregonian/OregonLive traveled to all 31 of the active fishing villages from Cascade Locks to just past Boardman on both the Oregon and Washington sides of the Columbia River. Deplorable conditions can be found at nearly all of them. The sites that are considered the best for fishing are overcrowded, unsanitary and unsafe. Only one of the sites has a working high pressure fire spigot connecting to the Columbia. But it's not at Underwood.

#UnfairandLovely: Dark-skinned women unite to fight against pressure for fair skin - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) Aboriginal News Group Newswire

#UnfairandLovely: Dark-skinned women unite to fight against pressure for fair skin - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): #UnfairAndLovely highlights the marginalisation and discriminatory beauty standards dark-skinned women experience in countries where fair skin is favoured.

The social campaign has inspired women from all walks of life to celebrate their dark skin in order to bridge the divide between women of colour.

The viral movement is the creative by-product of a photo shoot by University of Texas student Pax Jones, who shot a series on the impact colourism has had on herself and two other Sri Lankan students.

Who is @PurePapua and what does he stand for? | Moui.Net – Written from the Heart Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Who is @PurePapua and what does he stand for? | Moui.Net – Written from the Heart: “West Papua: Loss of freedom, violent assault, environmental destruction and total disregard for human life”

A simple tweet, but meaningful, heartfelt, surrounded by depths of burning emotions, especially one that displays a cynical view of West Papua, the lack of international attention, and the continued tyranny of Indonesia.

Follow him, ignore him, hate him, admire him, I don’t fucking care. I know that he can count on me for support, for my arm, for my fist, for my compassion and for my desire to see freedom for West Papua. I see @PurePapua as my brother, and I stand by his side in our quest to enable West Papuans the freedom for self-determination. For the Present, for the Future, for Life.

Native People Respond to Rowling American Indians in Children's Literature (AICL)

Screen cap added 3/10/16
As fans of Harry Potter know, there are two distinct responses to her "History of Magic in North America" stories.

The first story, "Fourteenth Century - Seventeenth Century," was released on Monday, March 8, 2016. Fans were delighted to have more of her writing to read.

Native people--those who are fans of her books, and those of us who study or write about representations of Native peoples in popular culture and children's literature--had a different response.

When I read the first story in Rowling's series, I'd been deeply immersed in a study of a handful of best selling children's books. This is in the popular Geronimo Stilton's The Wild, Wild West:
