"This is national native news. I'm Antonia Gonzalez. Navajo Nation leaders and healthcare officials are urging Navajo citizens to continue to take COVID-19 precautions as concerns over the spread of the omicron variant grows around the world. Now the whole leaders and public health officials in a virtual town hall Tuesday asked Navajo citizens to be careful and to protect their families and others by getting vaccinated and to continue to wear masks in public. Now the whole nation president, Jonathan nez. We want to make sure that we are all prepared. We warrior up as we go into the holiday, the Christmas season, the new year's holidays here. And it's upon all of us. It's not all pun government. It's not upon Washington, D.C., it's upon you. The whole health officials say they're currently addressing the delta variant while monitoring oma cron as part of the tribe's public health response to COVID-19, internal medicine specialist, doctor vaa. Working in the collaborative effort, we've already made overcrowd a priority to be able to pick up and detect should it be here in that organization. As of now, none of the samples have come back positive over time. It's still very much delta. We are monitoring this and we have the tools and systems in place to do so and that are actively doing so right now.

It's causing disease and people who have recovered from Delta according to the World Health Organization oma cron is spreading in South Africa and is expected to be detected around the world. U.S. officials are preparing for its arrival. The Dr. Phil television show Tuesday focused on missing and murdered indigenous women, including the 2018 case of henny Scott and Montana, the 14 year old went missing and her body was found on the northern Cheyenne reservation weeks after she was last seen. Her parents Paula Nate talked about their painful experience and the lack of answers and attention, henny's case received from law enforcement. Do you think it would be different if somebody in a neighboring town where the blond haired blue eyed child that was missing? Do you think they would respond differently than they did with you? Probably because they got more resources. Resources after reservation. To where, after reservation, you see somebody go missing and they got an amber right away. Helicopters and the maybe more cops there and dogs even. The show also featured the case of Ashley loring, who went missing four years ago. She was last seen on the blackfeet reservation. Her family says, there are still no answers. A national voter registration document is being made available for the first time in ubik Navajo and Apache, KS JD's Sophia Stewart Rossi has more.

"This is national native news. I'm Antonia Gonzalez. Tribal leaders in southeast Alaska are applauding the Biden administration's move to reinstate protections for the tongues national forest, but they warn that the administrative change could be limited to who's in The White House. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently unveiled plans to reverse a Trump administration decision to exempt about 9 million acres from protections that could ease logging and mining on federal forest land. Alaska tribe sued the federal government, saying, they were not properly consulted. Organized village of cakes tribal president Joel Jackson says the latest announcement is a positive development. His tribe had resisted efforts by the Trump administration and Alaska's governor to open more old forests to logging. But he says his village once permanent protections. You know, this has been a long fight since Trump and Ben Levi will return the road bush rule. Although it's a win for us to have a reverse at still what glue would hope for the long haul. A two month comment period is now underway that will begin the process of restoring roadless rule protections that places restrictions on development. The announcement will also include acknowledgment that the Biden administration will work closer with tribes whose homelands now make up the modern day tongues national forest. The New Mexico missing a murdered indigenous women and relatives task force hosted a virtual community education panel Monday when area of need advocates discussed as education for young people. Jessica get a Doc whom Smith is the education and outreach coordinator for the task force. She sees a need for education materials on the dangers of social media used by traffickers to recruit victims. They're really needs to be education on an accurate historical multi generational trauma. And what that looks like. And how that affects our youth and our children still today. And how that makes people more vulnerable to trafficking in ways to notice red flags and what, you know, especially with our youth to who are on social media and things like that. Because I was groomed into trafficking via Facebook. So I think, you know, that type of curriculum, that's really, you know, to the point like, hey, you gotta watch out out there. Regina Chaka is with the New Mexico Department of Public Safety, missing persons clearing house. Build those relationships with the children and let them know that we are safe that law enforcement is safe to speak to or how to speak to them being comfortable around law enforcement and really creating that listening environment. And I think that would that would benefit all around for the students for the families for the parents having community events showing up to community events with the schools and to build those relationships. The nearly two hour education panel also included testimony from families a missing a murdered relatives. Task force members address barrier solutions and resources, the task force was established in 2019 by New Mexico's governor. It includes tribal state and community partners. 5 tribes in Maine are working on boosting tribal tourism in the state, The Associated Press reports, they recently received funding of $150,000 from four directions development corporation. The wabanaki cultural tourism initiative hopes to create a tourism economy in the next decade. The funding will also help tribal members attend a program for community leaders to build tourism.

Minnesota is the place where 38 Dakota men were hanged in the largest mass execution in U.S. history. But that event didn't show up in most Minnesota school classrooms for more than a century. It's one of the details of history lost among the lessons developed and taught by non native educators. A new initiative in the state aims to give all students a more rounded version of history, culture, and wisdom extending beyond the time since settlers arrived.

"Native opinion. We are an indigenous information and education radio show in podcast, and every week we talk about current affairs related to and from our own Native American perspectives, my name is Michael kicking bear, and the guy in the other end of this thing, of course, he is. David gray, good morning all. Good morning, everybody. How's it going? How you doing brother? Doing okay, I think. Yeah, how about yourself? Doing okay. Just for the live audience, you might hear a little bit of a delay. We're using a conference bridge this morning for part of the show. We're going to be talking with our good friend, Marilyn van. So we're kind of in a conference wine and then we'll switch things over a little bit later. So good morning to you both. Good morning to you. And good morning. Yes. Well, Marilyn, we're elated and thankful to have you as a guest on the show this morning. And be here. Well, thank you. And for our listeners that don't know you, I will give you a brief introduction and our guest is Marilyn van president of the descendants of Friedman of the 5 civilized tribes. And of the descendants of Friedman of the 5 tribes association, mister ban of the former engineer team lead at the U.S. government, a former engineer at ExxonMobil corporation. And miss van made history, she recently became the first descendant of Cherokee Friedman to hold the government position with the nation. Joining the environmental protection commission. And that's a big to do in my opinion. Absolutely. And she is the president at absolutely president at the African Americans of 5 civilized tribes foundation. Which is a foundation that fights against racial discrimination, practiced by the U.S. and tribal government, sadly. And for the enforcement of the 19 8 I'm sorry, 1866 treaty rights of descendants of 5 tribes of Friedman. Now, there's something that like I said a moment ago made history and it's really, really important that this happened for a lot of reasons. Now in an interview with high country news about her achievements, miss van, no, read and I quote, well, it makes me feel good that I'm able to use my talents and education. Hopefully to benefit the tribe and I'm hoping that there are going to be more young people in the Cherokee nation that are going to go and to stand positions or professions. So yes, I feel good. And I want to add value end quote. And I thought that was a great, great piece of commentary that more young people should hear and I'm hoping that not only in the Cherokee nation, but lots of other native children. Take up stem and look for positions and professions. Thank you, miss van. And welcome. Well, thank you. And I'm glad to be here. Did I leave anything out or would you like to change anything that I said that I might have missed or incorrectly stated? Okay, I do want to make a small correction. First person treatment status to have a position in the Cherokee nation government. I'm the first one to hold a position on a board or a commission, but about 28 to 1866, 1900, there were about 6 million Friedman status who served as elected officials. They were on the tribal council that women couldn't be on the council at that time. And so I, you know, I am the first woman of Friedman status to hold a position and or I'm the first one to hold a position. In over since the dawn on of the 20th century. Okay. Wow. Well, so yes, I just don't want to take away the accomplishments of great men like Steve Ross or Jerry alberti who served on the council, you know, as I said in 1880, 1890 or whatever. Okay. Well, thank you for that correction. I stand corrected. Sure, thank you sure thing. That is an important part of history and an important part

"And joining me now from what is currently known as new hazelton British Columbia Chris statin Chris, welcome to media indigenous. Creating Zürich. Yes, I'm here in GitHub, nation territory within the house territory of spoke, who is the hereditary leader who holds title to this land. Now, just before we get too deeply into things here, I thought for those who might appreciate a brief update, I wanted to very quickly sketch out in a bare bones fashion the most recent events as of this recording, which is taking place at one 19 Pacific time on November 24th, 2021. And in so doing, I'm borrowing heavily here from reports by AP ten national news. Now, of course, this conflict centers on a portion of a 670 kilometer pipeline that if completed would transport natural gas from northeastern BC to the coast, it's called strangely enough, the coastal gas link pipeline project ultimately designed and built by a Calgary based company known as TC energy who would also own and operate it if built. And the 20 elected First Nations band councils along the pipeline's path have approved the project, but what sotin hereditary chiefs from all 5 clans of the wit so it's a nation have opposed it on environmental grounds and thus have not consented to its construction through their traditional territories. And ten days ago, November 14th, the gedin clan issued an evacuation order to coastal gas link and its hundreds of employees to effectively leave their territory and thus seize construction. When that evacuation didn't happen, blockades went up on two access roads, coastal gas link or CGL employees then delivered a BC Supreme Court injunction order, prohibiting such blockades, fast forward to November, 18th, 19th, less than a week ago, when heavily armed RCMP officers moved into arrest those on the blockades along with a photojournalist and a documentarian. 29 arrests and all by last count. So, Chris, bearing in mind that here on media indigenous, we try not to rehash or repeat too much of our discussions. My hope here in inviting you onto the program today is that we could add to those earlier discussions by looking at what you see as what we might call neglected underemphasized or even underestimated aspects of what's currently happening and what so it and territories. So where do we begin? You know, I'm, as I mentioned speaking from spoke territory in what is new hazelton, which is neighboring the what's so tenant and as you know, that gets in and so it's in hereditary chiefs are the ones who together initiated Aboriginal title proceedings in the Canadian court system back in the 1980s culminating in the historic Delgado caste way decision in 1997, which said that these nations average title, you know, the right to own this land had never been extinguished and had never been surrendered. And those issues are still unresolved here on the ground and, you know, where I am at, it's really important to understand sort of the interconnectedness of the nations. You know, these are neighboring nations who have existed alongside each other with sort of ancient alliances that they continue to uphold today. Including specifically allying together to repel invaders, both historically and today. And so you know, where I live, my house here with my wife and son who are also gets in. My wife and son are like skek from the eagle clan and belong to the house of soccer geek och. And we live here in spoke territory and I live literally a couple hundred yards from the CN rail tracks. And on Thursday evening, some get in folks upholding ancient alliance that they do have with their what's so to neighbors. And having heard about what was happening on the established a rail blockade on the CN tracks, which, you know, if you're not familiar at all with git sound history, this is certainly not the first time that the tracks have been blockaded throughout history in asserting rights and calling attention to unresolved sort of grievances. And so I've been visiting as a mostly as a legal observer. I am a lawyer who works with indigenous peoples on issues of rights and self determination. And so, you know, I went down there to show support. My family went there to show support as gits and people also with obligations that they have to uphold. And we went down there Friday morning and brought some firewood and my wife cooks and fry bread and brought some fish sandwiches down to people out on the front line there and we were there for about two hours on Friday before we got word that some of these RCMP forces that have been sort of shipped in from out of the territory to deal with soap to land offenders. And then forcement of the CGL injunction we're on their way or in route down highway 16 two new hazelton, which is about a 30 minute drive. And as we were sort of peacefully observing with a group of about 20 gets in people on an overpass overlooking the tracks, we were quickly swarmed by what seemed to be about 40 heavily armed police officers, including at least four that I could see who were dressed in sort of green military looking tactical gear carrying heavy assault rifles. And sorry, how many people were gathered to blockade the rail? Yeah, at this stage, there was probably only about, you know, I'd say 20 individuals mostly gets in folks. And you know, only a smaller portion of those were actually sort of previously on the tracks establishing what was the blockade. But in sort of seeing this heavy swarm of police, including helicopters, suddenly appear every person stepped away from the tracks and instead came up on top of an overpass somewhere where their lawfully occupying the land and observed these militarized police raiding and coming onto the tracks and what I next saw was gets on women and children who grabbed marshmallows and started throwing them at these heavily armed police officers and witnessing and I get that ante's insulting them asking them what exactly they thought they were doing. You know, showing up here. No, are these the bigger marshmallows or the little mini ones? It could make a difference. Oh my God. I know these were these were not. These were not mini. These were the biggest scariest marshmallows that, you know, I'm sure that the RCMP has seen before. If you don't laugh, you'll cry. You know, as this was happening, you know, I grabbed my phone and I started recording because, you know, this is happening in a small community, there was no media present and you know, so I instantly started recording what was going on in interactions with the police and sharing it online so that the world could see what was happening at that moment. And one of the interactions included as a result of officers being pelted with marshmallows two of the tactical RCMP with assault rifles actually came onto the overpass where people were peacefully gathered with their fingers on or near their triggers of their rifles. And threatening gets in women with arrest for assault

"This is national native news. I'm art Hughes in for Antonio Gonzalez, a new policy requires Washington state university to seek consultation and better coordination with tribes when conducting research or developing academic programs. The WSU insider reports the added measures also apply to other activities that affect tribal members or tribal sovereignty. The policy on tribal engagement consultation and consent was developed over two years. It specifically requires the university to obtain consent from tribal governments before engaging in activities that would affect the tribe or its members in a way that would be different from the general public. Zoey high eagle strong, the university's executive director of tribal relations told the news outlet, the policy aims to further develop genuinely collaborative work with tribes because she says scientific and other forms of knowledge benefit from multiple perspectives. The policy applies to all federally recognized tribes and those recognized by the state of Washington. Renowned Minnesota ojibwe artist, George Morrison is among those whose work will be featured on a series of postage stamps in 2022. Morrison, a member of the grand portage band of Lake Superior ojibwe, was contemporaries with Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. In choosing Morrison officials with the U.S. Postal Service say he challenged prevailing ideas of what Native American art should be. In an interview with Minnesota native news reporter Leah lem, Morrison's son, briand Morrison, said his father's work is getting more notice since his death in 2000. The major shows that have happened have spurred on dialog on the subject of what is made of art. Anyway, so they coined the phrase native modernism. That's the name of our movement. And then they attributed George Carson to be the founder of the new modern art world. Morrison is known for colorful expressionist landscapes and wood collages. 5 of his paintings will be reproduced on stamps. They will be available in the spring of next year. This week we are featuring some of the recent inductees to the Native American Hall of Fame. Among those honored is Dave Anderson. He is the founder of the famous Dave's chain of barbecue restaurants. He also served as the assistant secretary of the interior for Indian affairs during the George W. Bush administration. In an interview following the Hall of Fame ceremony Anderson told native America calling producer Andy Murphy, his success did not come easy, but he says his happiness comes from helping others. Somebody once said, God, what I love to be in your shoes seems that everything you touch turns to gold. And I had to laugh at him. I said, you have no idea what you just asked for because my life has been filled with adversity, tough challenges, many times I never thought we would make it. But I never gave up and I think that's probably one of the biggest lessons is never give up on your dreams, but also I think the day changed for me when I quit trying to do stuff for Dave Anderson and I really focused on other people in it was all about learning that I should focus on the happiness of other people and not my happiness. That is restaurant magnate, Dave Anderson. He was inducted this month, along with 7 others into the Native American Hall of Fame. With national native news, I'm art Hughes.

"Stalin writer, Lee miracle. I met Lee back in 2017 at a writer's festival in Kingston Ontario. Actually, we met on the train traveling there from Toronto. It was my first time taking the train and that was clearly lost in a bit terrified. But then Lee showed up. Her big smile flashed through the crowd. Her signature backpack on. She quickly led the way. She offered me the seat next to her and we made each other comfortable passing stories back and forth. When we got to the hotel we checked in and had dinner in the restaurant together. For two hours, we shared food, belly aching laughter and anti wisdom. Just as our ancestors did for generations. She said things like, as indigenous women, we carry the heart of our nations. And my world shifted. The next year Lee invited me to another writer's festival, this one in aurelia Ontario. I say invited, but really, she summoned me. That was Lee. If she wanted you to be somewhere, you showed up. This time, it was a road trip with tawny talaga, anishinabe journalist bestselling author and truth teller. Lee offered me her couch to sleep on before we went head out the next morning. I couldn't believe it. I was going to sleep on Lee miracles couch. Then I saw Lee miracles couch. It was a small sofa that SAP between the stairs and a wooden shelf, full of mismatched dishes, glasses and cups. Make yourself at home, she said, and shuffled off into her small kitchen to pour some drinks. We sat on her back porch talking late into the night. She shared knowledge about her garden, her love of quilting and her plans to go home to the West Coast someday. Afterwards, I lay on that couch, covered in a patchwork quilt handmade by Lee. Her story quilt hanging in my memory. My head bumping up against the shelf. My feet bent up against the wall. It was lumpy, and I could hear the furnace go on and off all night. It was by far the worst sleep I ever had. But as I lay there in the dark, I smiled. Because I was on Lee miracles couch. Make yourself at home, she said. In my world, shifted again. There are more festivals more dinners and deep conversations on these porch. Always, she offered all that she had. Her food, her home, her joy, her truth. Even if it was a hard truth. Or a hard couch for that matter. Always with a smile in that unforgettable laugh. Of course I knew Lisa worked before we met, her book I am woman changed how I felt about being an indigenous woman. After I read it, I claimed the word feminist for the first time. I felt powerful, fierce. Her poetry book bent box spoke truth to power until it was truth and power. It was my truth and power. I felt fearless unapologetic. Her books include my conversations with Canadians, Bobby Lee, Indian rebel, Raven song, Celia song, a list of her work as long and beautiful. I looked forward to reading more of her words in the years to come. On November 11th, Lee miracle passed away. She was 71 years old on this earth. And she left many morning hearts. But we celebrate her knowing that Lee has gone home that now she is one of our ancestors. Watching over us, guiding us. In my world, shifts once

"This is national native news. I'm Antonia Gonzalez. Google kicked off Native American heritage month in November with an interactive doodle, the Google doodle honored the late zuni Pueblo weaver Potter and fiber artist wiwa, the late wewa was a revered cultural leader devoting their life to cultural preservation. Zuni Pueblo artist Mallory Quito collaborated with Google on the project. We were was basically our first ambassador to Washington, D.C.. She used to accompany our governor to Washington as a translator. They used to call the zuni princess and people with flock to come see we were demonstrate the arts that she was very well known for pottery weaving benzine. She was very well thought of very endearing person generous mediator for everybody. We were was born a male but lived their life as a woman doing a female roles within zuni culture, but also still practicing all the male roles as well. Queta key worked on the images and interactive weaving demo. Their story is still alive. This legacy that we were, you know, has, I feel that we all should take part in it. The artist hopes the public enjoyed learning about zuni history culture and way of life. The co quel tribe is fighting to save chinook salmon as KLCC Brian bull reports, efforts to control invasive baths recently took a turn. On a special electrified boat, coursing through the coquille river, a team of Coke oil tribal members and personnel from the Oregon department of fish and wildlife gaze over the rippling green waters, nuts and hand. They scoop up fish drifting belly up, start from the electrical field that emanates from the front of the craft. The mass of plague, the coquille river for over a decade biologists say, they feed on young chinook salmon, which has hurt their numbers. Oh DFW biologist Gary van roe says, this electro fishing initiative is just one of many efforts to reduce the bass, which many officials believe are introduced into this waterway, illegally. We don't know for sure. There are small mouth bass in neighboring watersheds, so most likely somebody caught them in another watershed and brought them over here. About 2018, the fall schnuck population took a really hard nosedive. A very hard nosedive. Cold quell tribal chair, Brenda Meade, says odfw research shows that in 2010, there were 30,000 returning chinook salmon, but only 275 and 2019. That's a 99% decrease in return numbers for our salmon. We immediately declared an emergency. It's a very inhospitable environment for our salmon today. Other factors besides invasive bass include pollution, river and ocean conditions, and insufficient brood stock. The electoral fishing operation wrapped up in mid September, but not after cruise took out nearly 5000 small mouth and striped bass. Coke well tribal elder Bill Murphy says their latest effort, so hopefully made more chinook salmon coming back to the coquille river in the coming months. When we harvest the salmon we honor them by returning the bones so that they make sure the fish return every year. And we live in harmony with the fish, and when the fish aren't doing good, we're not doing good. So trying to eradicate these predators, it seems to be the answer for national native news.

A highlight from 11-23-21 What do tribes get from the massive federal infrastructure bill?

"This is national native news. I'm art Hughes in bra Antonio Gonzalez. The word squaw is derogatory and is on its way out for any federal places bearing the name. That's the bottom line of a formal declaration by U.S. department of interior secretary Deb Holland. The order also includes an investigation to replace other derogatory names. Holland's action forms a task force to identify and replace what she says are racist terms used by the federal government. She says names should celebrate a shared cultural heritage, not to in her words, perpetuate the legacies of oppression. Earlier this year, the privately owned California ski resort changed its name from squaw valley after decades of pressure from local tribes, at least two states have laws prohibiting using the word for place names. The federal legislation known as Savannah's act has seen its first deadline come and go, and at least two members of Congress are seeking answers. The act of facilitate better coordination and expand data collection to combat the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women calls for the Justice Department to give regular reports to Congress. The act was signed into law in October 2020. No reports from DOJ are scheduled. Washington state Republican Dan newhouse issued a statement, saying he is deeply disappointed that the deadline was missed given the extent of the crisis in his state and across the country. California Democrat Norma Torres urges complete transparency from the department relating to the act's implementation. The law was named for Savannah lafontaine grey wind a pregnant 22 year old spirit Lake Dakota woman, who was murdered in 2017. Another bipartisan group of lawmakers are calling on the U.S. attorney general to act on recommendations on a report by the general accounting office that finds among other things, there is no comprehensive data on missing and murdered indigenous people. Noted Lakota elder Marcello bow has died. She was a decorated World War II veteran serving as a nurse in the U.S. Army nurse corps, a citizen of the Cheyenne river Sioux tribe, she served on that nation's council for four years. This month, she was inducted into the Native American Hall of Fame at age 102. She told native America calling producer Andy Murphy, how much she appreciated the recognition. Do you know I've had many honors in my life, but to be honored by Native American people as the greatest honor I have ever received. Lebeau served as the director of nursing at the eagle Butte IHS hospital and among other things, she was known for her leadership and health and wellness and health policy. She was also a champion of the effort to rescind the medals of honor from the soldiers who participated in the wounded knee massacre in 1890. At the presidential candidates forum and 2019, she asked each of the candidates the same question, whether they would support the remove the stain act. Back on our reservation on the same river reservation, there is a pervasive sadness that exists there because of wounded knee and what happened there. We have descendants living on our reservation and steady rock and there has never been closer to wounded. They gave 20 medals of honor to soldiers of the 7th cavalry for a bravery in whatever else they called it. They murdered women and children. In Bigfoot, who was ill with pneumonia, lying there, no weapon, under a flag of truce.

It's part of the recently enacted $1.2 trillion infrastructure package adopted by Congress. Tribes are mostly praising the influx of money. At the same time, many tribal leaders say the money is a good start, but the basic infrastructure on tribal lands requires sustained investment in order to make a real difference. The current infrastructure allocations are aimed at fixing projects like a failed drinking water system at the confederated tribes of warm springs and long-standing sewer, water and transportation needs on the Navajo Nation. The bill also allocates an additional $3.5 billion

"This is national native news. I'm art Hughes in for Antonia Gonzalez, a federal review committee is scheduled this week to consider whether remains and artifacts at the university of Alabama are tied to 7 tribes who are trying to get the remains back. AL dot com reports the committee can rule on whether the tribes are connected to the remains, but can't force the university to turn them over. The news outlet reports the muskogee creek nation and the other tribes have tried to recover the remains from the mound ville, archeological park for years without success. Tribal officials filed a claim under the Native American graves protection and repatriation act, but say they continued to be hampered by bureaucratic red tape. The National Congress of American Indians issued a resolution calling for the university to turn the items over to the tribes. Archeologists date the remains to 6000 years ago, the university spokesperson released a statement saying the university has worked with several tribes to return the ancestral remains, and that they desire to continue collaborating with tribes on their requests.

She resigned from the show and her film inconvenient Indian lost its distribution. While most tribal officials praised the recently concluded tribal nation summit with the Biden administration, at least one chairman is strongly critical of the event. In a written statement, Cheyenne river Sioux chairman Harold Frazier says he was prevented from expressing what he says is really happening in Indian country. Frazier's concerns were mostly centered around the Indian health service complaining that COVID infections are creating serious problems. Frazier says Cheyenne river citizens are having to wait as long as 36 hours to receive lifesaving treatment. For good or bad Frazier says his tribe must rely on IHS, but the federal government's failure to honor its treaty responsibility is constant lives.

There wouldn't be the same resistance but because it's a first nations led initiative and an average head start program would be located there that that's actually with generating the the response the negative response to development and having lived in saskatchewan.
