Eight seventy six twenty four or online at Dream Spring Dot Com. You're tuned into native America calling and Monica Brain. I like to keep a close eye on. Tv shows that feature what I call the native episode. This is when they devote the hour to a native issue and feature native actors today. We're picking apart some episodes that try to include native legal issues like jurisdiction and the Indian Child Welfare Act Pretty Complex concepts for a TV drama for me. When I'm watching a show. They usually get something wrong and they usually end up shouting at the television. When it comes to law I find myself. Googling things like is Washington State appeal to eighty Ken. County sheriff's go on Reservation Land. Or what reservation is closest to. Seattle well today. I've got a legal expert on the show. Who will help us sort out? What is right and what is wrong in some popular? Tv shows featuring native characters and native land. I've assigned him some shows to watch. Let's see if he did his homework joining us. Now as Matthew Fletcher. He is a law professor at Michigan State University's College of Law and author of the Turtle Talk Blog and he's grand traverse band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians. Welcome back to native America Calling Matthew. Thank you so much Monica Rights. You're stuck at home watching television. Well I have been sequestering. I'm in my office right now. I guess I'm I'm probably the only one in the building. Have you been catching up on on? Tv shows catching up on on Steph. I have thanks for the assignments. I WANNA I WANNA say one thing before we get started. do a shout out from my mom. It's her birthday today. June June Mama GonNa Fletcher. She sent me on this pop culture journey years ago. Letting me stay up to watch midnight showings of Colombo and Star Trek Way back in the day. That's fantastic happy birthday all right so the let's talk about. Tv shows in general like when they take our native issues. Are you like me shouting at the television? Oh yeah usually am I have to tell you you know I'm that one of the many of us. One of those kids who liked watching cowboy movies but always wanted the Indians to kill them. All just didn't see enough of that and I I was jumping up and down shouting ghost nation throughout less world until they wrote him off the show. Oh no I didn't I haven't caught up yet. Okay we should probably let everybody know there's GonNa be some spoilers today we are talking about. Tv shows that are on right now. So if you're worried about spoilers you know take caution but All right well interesting. Okay so what happens okay. So do you ever feel like you're excited? That they attempted the issue but then also kind of irritated that they got it wrong and is there ever a time when you're like? I guess I'll forgive them because they at least they attempted it almost every single time. Unless it's something really obnoxious you know. I've seen a trend in the last ten years. Which is you know. A lot of tribes have gaming enterprises and they've used some of the resources to acquire political power and exercise political power. So you know once in a while a moment where it's sorta crazy racist but at the same time I'm like going okay. That's fine for example when you know somebody in politics or law enforcement goes to the reservation and ask them for permission to do things and the tribal leaders kind of respond in a way that sort of vaguely gangster ish in a way that I'm not familiar with but you're not familiar with The tribal leader. Who's throwing his weight around? I I am familiar with that. But not in a gangster ish way. I'm sure there are tribal leaders. Who Do that. But that's generally not my experience. You know I wanna add another voice to the conversation joining us now. Schilling he socio editor of Indian country. Today he's Aqua Sausage Mohawk. Hey Vince thanks for joining us. Hey thanks for having me multiple native nerd. That's right he is. He's the native nerd. So Vince I want to. I know you're not a legal expert but I wanted to add you to this conversation because you know. I know that you're also one of those people who's watching closely. You're writing about it in Indian country today When they get it right when they get it wrong. Do you ever find yourself? You know forgiving some errors because you're just so excited by the plotline or so excited by the actor and the job that they're doing yes that guilty pleasure right not wanting to talk about the stuff. That's that's horrendous. But you're enjoying the show. You know the the sad thing like we were talking you and I talking before the show about Goliath you know what I'm saying and We've got Graham Greene and they're you know he's at one. I don't know it's in season three and Graham Greene. Some of the listeners are familiar Goliath is with billy. Bob Thornton plays an attorney and he visits you know this reservations rising Sun casino. He meets up with Graham Greene. Who plays the character little crow? You know little crow takes Dennis Quaid up to The secret area and he puts like four sacred clay pipes on a lazy Susan spins around. He looks like he's grinding. Up on the sage or something. I'll get super high and I'm like what the before where he doesn't Graham Greene polls you know blackbird feather out of his neck and holds it over the post it note in the post it note burst into flame. I'm like out here. I was just like but but you know this because I really like Billy Bob Thornton but that that was kind of like. Let's say a little over the top there. I felt like Goliath. Got into some ridiculous territory but I wanted us to talk about it because it has this issue of taking water from reservation land and Matthew when you watched it was was Graham Greene character. You know kind of what you're imagining when you were talking about. The the gangster type tribal leader. Well you know a little bit you know. But the the whole the the good gangster guys are the ones that Put the front of being these spiritual mysterious creatures but really in the end. They're just about power politics. Yeah absolutely so. Let's talk a little bit about Goliath. And so the the character said what's going on in this season season three is that there's a farmer there's farmers in the Central Valley in California and there's almond farmers and as we know to make almond to grow. Almonds you need a lot of water and so there's some really wealthy farmers who have colluded to basically take all of the water in the area and so the people living there they don't have any water left in the wells and In addition to that there's this subplot of close by reservation where they've tunneled under into federal land and our and our taking water from federal land without permission and Billy Bob Thornton is this sort of. I don't know a little bit of an alcoholic lawyer who takes on the ideas Goliath. He takes on big businesses big cases and Tries to get into it and so he has a friend. Who's wife Falls into a sinkhole and dies because of the water that they're taking you know from the whole area and So he tries to take on this case. And that's where he bumps against the tribe he bumps up against these very wealthy farmers. He finds out that the waterboard is completely privatized entirely run by an organization by the farmers and and he tries to take them on basically and so Matthew came up for you when it when you watched this season and looked through all of this when it comes to law and you know what was happening.

"Make the governance system they have a table at their office in smithers that have six seats for elected chiefs to say that they they'll muck was twenty five years ago. They have not once invited us there to speak and to discuss governments and to work that governance structure out. So I don't know what they've been doing in twenty five years but they haven't the Soviet so that that's part of the problem also insulin. We take a look at this We also understand that by signing on there's also payment Can you tell me a little bit about that of Signing onto this agreement what kind of payment Do the Whitsun get. And what does the ban plan to do with this money? Well when we see each of us bands have signed different agreements and we've negotiated agreements on our own. I'm part of Cherry County Tribal Council and we negotiate or what you call a pathway two point oh which is far above most of the other band that have signed onto the LNG but besides that point Like I said all the wetsuit and chiefs hereditary chiefs living communities and they get part of those resources and it's GonNa help us re- revitalize our culture. We've got language programs going on. We've got we're making star like saying we're teaching our culture back in and you can't do that. One your core. You need resources to pay for people to come in and help you to revitalize your language you need to pay people to come in and help to do arts and crafts first nation used to do years and years ago there renteria Jerry. Chiefs are supposed to be teaching us that but I haven't seen any of them in my community last thirty years so I'm not. I'm not sure where their role is nowadays. But and another thing too. It's all all the court cases in Canada we're done by elected chiefs like you. Got this the sparrow case. You've got the Garin case. You got called her case. All these cases were done by elected chiefs and we fought for a title and rights and we still fight for title and rights and every negotiation that we do. And we've created that space for the red shirt chiefs if we didn't fight for rights as elected leaders. They would not have that space where they are today. I appreciate you sharing that. We got to go to break here and Unfortunately we don't have any hereditary chiefs on the line with us today but we have spoken to them in the past. If you're curious on what some of their thoughts are on this you can also look up In archives but our phone lines are open. Join US right now. We'd like to hear from you. In Northern Canada and Alaska Indigenous people were paying double and triple the price for some groceries compared to everyone else. Government subsidies and food programs help and some native communities are coming up with innovative solution ideas. We'll hear more about this on the next native America calling support by dream.

Eight seventy six twenty four or online at Dream Spring Dot Com. Thanks for joining us today. Here on native America calling them target would misled Pueblo. And we are talking about The fight over a natural gas pipeline in British Columbia elected leaders from twenty first nations along the pipeline route have signed on in support of the pipeline but some hereditary chiefs so that would soa tin or against it. What do you think about? All this gives a call. The number to join us is one eight hundred nine six. Two eight four eight. That's also one eight hundred nine nine native and here with us on the line. Today's chief Dan George an elected chief of the Burns Lake Band. My pleasure to have him here and achieve George when We think about everything that's gone on. And of course the headlines this morning Were individuals were taken into custody. At a Mohawk stance in solidarity of Soa Tin Hereditary chiefs. Who had professed that? They don't want this pipeline there. What are your thoughts when you see this going on? Well if you know what happened in northern British Columbia and because of all these protests and everything First nations are starting to get really discriminated against and everywhere. We go that. They think it's us that are creating all these problems. And and we're talk and discriminations really starting to happen really bad for a lot of our elders and kids in the communities. So it's GonNa Stop I. I I think that all these other people that are joining the protests. Don't know the exact story that's going on and another another thing also is It's kind of ironic. How these environmentalists have shut down our way of life years and years ago by stopping for trade that was our way of making a living back then and now that we finally get another opportunity. They're trying to kill that also. And it's all supported by environmentalists and. I believe that they WANNA keep Canada's resources landlocked so that Most of our resources get shipped to the state so United States has a stranglehold on our resources and as long as they keep it that way they only pay half the prices of world prices if we can get then shipped to world market. Then they'll have to pay the real price for resources and Stanton Santa getting it for half price. I believe that a lot of their support from environmentalists comes from United States. Because of this all right well I do appreciate your stance on this your thoughts and that's what we're doing. We're creating dialogue here. I know you have thoughts to go ahead and join us one. Eight hundred nine six two eight four eight is the number. Do WanNa you know that we did reach out to some of their folks to be on this show today We were curious what they were thinking what they would like to share with you We reached out to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in British Columbia to be on the show. Declined We also reached out to the John. Horgan's office who is the premier of British Columbia? We did not hear back from them. we also reached out to t c energy and invited them to be on the show but we did not hear back from them as well by the start of the show. We also reached out to Scott Frazier. the minister of indigenous relations and Reconciliation British Columbia. Our request was not returned We did also reach out to the Mohawks of the Bay of quint on the tiny data territory. They declined to be on the program But we know there is space for more thoughts. Go ahead and dial in now chief Dan. George thank you for being with us and if you have anything you'd like to share with him directly you can call in one eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight also here with us. Today is Colin Sutherland Wilson. He's a spokesperson for indigenous youth. And for the what suicide then he is Gibson our pleasure to have him here calling welcome. Thank you for having me on the show in Colon Any thoughts of where we are right. Now we're also hearing that there are different opinions on this Chief Dan George is on the line with US and Is Definitely in supported? This pipeline has shared a little bit of background as to why he has his stints where people stand in. Go ahead Gimme your stance. Why would you like to share? Well I am just one of many spokespeople for the Indigenous Youth Sherwood. Soden representing Many nations from through Canada and for us we recognize that this is a much bigger issue than one single pipeline. We recognized that. This is inherently tied to our rights and title as indigenous people store sovereignty and our ability to self-govern and I come from personally hereditary family from On sparks just beyond of the nation and back in Nineteen ninety-seven are actually starting in Nineteen eighty-four. You know we took these issues to courts in the form of land claims and it was there that we fought alongside the what's owed predatory juice and actually able to prove that. British Columbia had never extinguished our rights and titles in the courts. And so this is the extension of that very same struggle All these years later so as the indigenous youth we understand You know a victory for the whatsoever and writer. Terry chief sets a precedent that will be heard all through Canada and it will allow for a greater degree of sovereignty to exist within this country. In so what are your main concerns with? The gasoline pipeline. Well primarily our main concerns. Are that The the predatory chiefs who have maintained action over their territories and Who each have complete Thomas decision making over their individual Utah Our main concerns in that regard are that they do not have the right to free prior and informed consent when it comes to decision making around these projects like we've clearly seen that if one group of people stands up and says no they will be met with a paramilitary invasion which has been well documented last year on January seventh with the radio also recently with the raise the seer in so calling. What are your thoughts with? What happened this morning? of the Solidarity Railroad Blockade and in folks being detained. It's very worrisome because all throughout this country there are various nations recognized the deeper ramifications of what is happening on. What Soda Territory? So they've been standing in solidarity ended. Negga the MOHAWK nation Back when they had their ohka The the top's looks at okay you know give signing with Soden we blocks railways over here in BC and likewise nowadays they are standing in solidarity with the with Soden and Very much so. There are many many nations that are currently blocking railways blocking ports blocking high ways bridges occupying offices even very recently the indigenous youth through. Soden occupied the front steps of the The Legislative Assembly.

My pleasure to have both of them here here and let's into it straight to the history Lorraine give us a little bit of a background on the forty niners. What's a forty niner? who were they and how did they impact tribes well? Well that's a big one from California. The West Coast actually The the discovery of gold in California In eighteen forty eight It was January. Twenty four th eighteen. Forty Eight This gold discovery at Sutter's mill there in central California here in central California and of course that change the westward movement. I mean up. Until then you've had this deluge of people coming across from the East you know the displacement of the Indians from the east coast and then out onto the planes and so on and and all the wars fighting in the southwest and then finally getting out here to the Oregon trail the famous Oregon trail. You know bringing all these immigrants into the North West and and then all of a sudden gold discovered and it's just completely flipped the paradigm because at that point. Then you know all these horrible things occur in terms policy so California is rushed immediately into statehood Just wham so he's got this big gap and I'll sit here. The new state you know in West United States For the United States and of course that follows the war with the Mexicans kicking them out of the South West In the treaty of Guadalupe the Hog. Oh and all that and so here. You've got California you know all of a sudden state because his laden in gold and this this news traveled across across the planet and you know the quote Unquote Euro Americans which are now calling themselves. Americans are gonNA come in mass as well as any other population that her the gold rush here in California. So Peter Burnett is the First Lieutenant Governor of California eighteen fifty and He is non slave. I'm just wanting to blacks in in Oregon or California at but he also doesn't want any Indians of California and so he then you know states in his address that that the the Nubia be a war against the California Indians until they are completely exterminated and so looking at some of the demography from like seventeen sixty nine two by eighteen forty six were anywhere from three hundred thirty thousand seven hundred and five thousand Indians that lived in California and with the discovery of gold now in the southern part of California. You already had the Spanish dealing with missions and the destruction of many Indians in the mission system building that across the lower part of California. Didn't reach where I'm at a northern California by way but So then you've got. That happened first first. And then you've got now the gold rush and so people then were encouraged to participate in the extermination There was a state funded program Backroll Bank ruled by the United States. Government ultimately Indians were worth around five dollars a scalp so the way that so you would bounty your your kill for the days you would take the scalps and you would take him into the local offices that crossed the new counties in California and you'd be be paid for these scalps and So this just went on you know until the population just of course plummeted and in this time of course introduction of brand new disease You know and then just the mass relocation of people and pushing people aside and so on and so I- population poppulation again drops from around seven hundred five thousand people in a very short period of time Just some very small numbers comparatively.

A winger is steamed rents in both of these gentlemen have many connections to the dance arena including the hoop dance If anything you'd like to share with these gentlemen calling now one eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight. So Steve We turn it to you and passing on the gift of Hoop Dance. Is something the thing you have done for quite some time even to your children and just talk to me a little bit about How you instruct about the instructor person into the dance arena? Lina well are particularly stories. started when our kids were young and we take them to powwows and that one powwow they saw friend of mine Do the Hoop Dance. And that was a champion dancer. Derek Davis who is also Hopi and Choctaw and after his performance My Son Nicola Really was interested in this particular dance so he asked me if he asked if we could helped him. Learn this dance and Derek Made his first set of hoops and Cottam a few moves and and from there there was no stopping the Coda he excelled at it and and and when we teach our young people The young kids that join our our group the Lightning Foundation We always teach reached them the meaning cultural meaning of the dance. And basically what we're trying to do with our youth disempower them through their Art Song Long and dance and in particular the Hoop dance and so we always teach them the history of the hoop dance. Its meaning and and tell them you know that this is. This was their land that they're living in. They should be proud of their culture and they can represent themselves with pride and confidence through the Hoop dance and a few of our students students have graduated from the program and gone on to college and in one particular case one. Young Man Took a dance class at his college in In and that class was asked to do research on a particular dance and so he decided to do the to do the paper on the native American Hoop dance and so he explained as class in his creation what the meaning and background hoop down was and he followed that with a performance and he wound end up getting a a plus in that class And then another particular incidents one of our young ladies that graduated from our program also went to redlands college in and She saw a flyer on one of the kiosk about a talent show so she signed up for the talent show and she performed the Hoop Dat. 'cause she wound up winning the talent show and just made a whole bunch of new friends because a lot of people have never seen this particular hormone the IT stops people in their tracks. Because it ain't like no it isn't like any other kind of dance and Steve Explain a little bit what it looks like for those folks who are hearing about this. Maybe even for the first I I am What it looks like and then what a dancer is doing? We keep talking about hoops but explain a little more. Go ahead Steve. Well if it is a very physical dance and we always teach our kids that it's called the hoop dance so they have to be in continuous motion while they're dancing and this is something that the judges look for in the category of precision and timing As well as rhythm and so we always tell our children that you have to keep moving While oh you're creating these designs and not only that but listening to the song and listening to win the song my end because As part of the timing they have to stop right on the beat. That's something that all the judges really look for. And so we Explain and teach our youth that You know the hoops are just just A part of the dance. It's a physical dance a physically demanding. And you know they have to have the speed as a speed is one of the alignments that the judges are looking for As well as the other elements Dentists mentioned but It really keeps them in shape For me I'm glad that they're taking away from the TV and the technology and that they're doing something That their ancestors did and that many of our performances. We get a lot of the elders. There's come up and just really appreciate what we're doing with our youth here in northern New Mexico because one of the stories is that the hoop dance originated in The pueblos of New Mexico Every tribe has their own origination story but here in the South West in in New Mexico. We tell the kids That that it originated here in the Pueblos awesome you. Mexico has a healing ceremony and so And particular credit is given towels Pueblo and so the lightning boy foundation was formed. After one of our young dancers a little boy named Valentino a single winnow Rivera and single window and Taylor means lightning He was We lost him to a a car accident about four years ago and he was one of our little stars he just He saw CODA Hoop dance when he was a little boy and the same story he wanted to learn. How do the hoop dance? So we started this program with the with the youth of northern New Mexico and unfortunately we lost him about four years ago in a car accident so we decided to change the name of our group to the lightning boy foundation in honor of him Because he wanted to share this dance with the world and in his young life he was able to do that he was able to travel to Hawaii. He traveled to Europe. He traveled to France Switzerland. Italy where he performed And he also performed the United Nations for Ambassador Keith Harper who is representing the United States at that time so This really opens up the world to the young. The people It gives them pride in their culture And also ties into their community as well and definitely you know news of his passing. It was really hard in in really impacted folks here in the state in worldwide too. I Imagine Steve and so when you are able to have stories Um I'm with this young man as well as others who have really dedicated a lot or either you saw them Struggle through picking up more than one hoop and then. There comes that that moment where they're able to do it in their. GimMe more Steve Anything you WANNA share about what this really does for an individual. Maybe even your own self confidence. It's well what are the things that I really remember. Is the first time we brought our our group to the world championship a hoop. That's about seventy years ago We have this one little girl poll That was part of our group and Wouldn't wouldn't you know the first person they called up to dance for that day was Po- and This is the first time she'd ever performed in public anywhere and as she was walking into the circle I looked at her eyes. and My saugus like look a bit of nervousness and fear and I kinda almost thought that she was gonna you know she was probably only like about six or seven years old and in the youth division and and I almost thought that she was gonNA turn around cry and run out of the arena but he he sure stepped up and she did a great performance for the first time in the circle there at the heard museum and I was so proud of her and nowadays they see a posted dance so she just walks out there and she's just so confident and proud of her abilities a US and she's just one of the many stories of the young people that we've We've been able to touch through this And I also have to give credit to a number of hoop downsize who've helped teach our children because whenever they come to northern New Mexico I usually twist their arm and Dallas his kids. The yellow house dancers the The Jensen family Lane and his wife The dawn and their two children tyree Kylie or a world champion hoop dancers gotta give credit eh to My daughter son Yla Rats. Who's now a hoop dancer for Cirque du Soleil show totem As well as Eric Hernandez who's been in the down circle and and and we actually become a really big family you know we have what we call a hoop dance family that everybody that shows up to the world championship. The Hoop dance We're all family and there's really no competition. It is a competition. But there's a lot of love that's going around as well so And of course I've got to give my son Nicole L. Around for a lot of credit. He's the lead instructor for the life of White Foundation us. That's in Steve Somebody listening saying Oh so women do. This is to anything you want to share about that. Oh Yeah I mean that's the beauty of an awesome as a What we teach our kids we tell them that you know when you go out into the world? Ah You apply for jobs. Or if you apply for sports or anything you know a lot of a lot of those arenas there's no separation of genders you know The males compete directly against females. And that's the case and world championship a hoop dance. That's the beauty of it and over the years we've had Some really great women hoop dancers that have represented tribes themselves with such beauty and grace We have A World Champion Female Hoop Dancer Lisa. OJ Who took the championship a few years back as well as my niece. Ginger Sykes six. Who was the first female to win the Teenage Division And so That's the beauty of it. Is that the the boys and the girls and the men and the women compete beat on equal playing ground. And so there's no separation of genders and I think that's something that's really fantastic about this competition. Indeed in this even extends all away to first nations in Canada. So let's go ahead and go there right now again. We're ready for you to call in one. Eight hundred nine nine native WE'RE GONNA go to Calgary Alberta Gorda to say hello to Dallas Arkin Junior A.

You're listening to native America calling interrogate with from a set of Pueblo. Today we are talking about Caribou and reindeer and they have a lot of cultural importance in the Arctic and sub Arctic and are sometimes tied very closely to the identity of the people including Wichian. And so me and so. We're going to get deeper into that but we also are asking. What do they mean to you? Your culture your nation. Give us a call at one. Eight hundred nine six two eight four eight also one eight hundred nine nine native and hello again to our guests. Lloyd binder in Inuit And Sami Reindeer herder. He joins US US today from INUVIK in Northwest Territories. Canada Loyd Thanks again for being here with us in your sharing some initial thoughts about Reindeer what they mean to you anything else. You want to add. Go ahead. Well I guess the the biggest feature I'd like the point here is that It's a mutual adaptation of humans and Ranger in that one has to allow for certain natural my when Leghari cycle with the with the reindeer so It it. It's not what it boils down to is that they're not all that easily ranch And there there are health issues that arise when they're confined to much so so that's a major Point to consider senator so now the hurting part Any hunter of Caribou can fairly easily learn how to herd reindeer but it's It's the husbandry skills that are Features of Saami hurting tradition is that there's a fair body of knowledge and skills to To to breed and train ranger to Deal with Health Issues Q.. Animals for particular it features so that your Your heard is An optimal shape insult Loyd. What happens when you you are hurting? And and I know it's a lifetime process being alongside The reindeer but but what is a cycle look like and you spoke of Migration Gratien. I saw some video footage of that and it is so amazing to see so many of them together moving They almost look like water flowing over the land and so talk to me about the different cycles go ahead yeah. Well the their two major events during the year new on is the the move to the north which will happen in in April and we Crossed our animals in early April before the the rivers loose or not and While it's safe to travel I it's And the lakes and rivers so that Dan Dan reverse. It's in the winter when we pick up thirds somewhere around early December and and had Had with the ranger back So to the winter range which is more of a lake and Feed so the It's it's an assisted. Migration is what it is and one doesn't Necessarily push the ranger exactly where one wants some to go but As long as you get the general direction they'll they'll pick their particular route in. So how so does the hurting that you do today. Compared to what maybe even your parents or grandparents did while it's a lot a lot more mechanized New Snow won't be always been the best inventions in sliced bread but Aside from that after is generally the same in and because of that mechanization also in with with good communications The safety factors higher so one is able to cover a A longer distance or search large areas in a shorter period of time In so talk to us a little bit about the culture that is connected to hurting. Well we're always a certain number of strays With any kind of a herd That in a thicker subgroup of younger bulls generally so you will wander off. That happens and if they're far enough away well then one just has to live with that unless it's a large number Generally the hurting or the hunting community The Bush folks like us are characters in a lot of ways. So they'll not only Let us know when they're many large-scale stray off and then they also will help with Taking care of editors who's like lulls than than we encourage them to harvest those in our vicinity because it's to our benefit in so you talked about understanding your heard. What are some of the things that the reindeer have taught you? I'm sorry I not appear on your question. What's that what have you learned from just being beside them for so many years I don't know Ah One just gets to observe a lot of the terrain the other wildlife. The weather The Moon in the Sky Stars so so it's Part of the learning of Traditional Bush travel and survival skills orientation and orienteering Traveling safely those things so There's usually few intense activities with the ranger. But so there's there's a fair bit of time for one do make observation and And maybe distilled what knowledge they can of various. I think I in in that knowledge of land is important too and have you seen any changes over the years or even migration patterns turns or even how The reindeer are adapting to their environment. Have you seen any changes. Well well There have been some then. We have actually switched range of When we took over the heard we moved this is in compiled and then one removed them back? Act was an older pattern A migration route We're more concerned with the CARIBOO movements and offer time those change and we basically stay out of the way of Kirby to avoid conflicts with Caribou or with the hunters and so Lloyd the harvest talk to us about harvesting reindeer In are there times that you plan for that. Well what we found After all this time is that It one can industrialized and and kill a greater under number over a shorter period. But we've found that the demands for inspection and and the manpower needs the The processing be compressed into type frame timeframe and the need for large storage for a short period of time. I'm it it hasn't worked as well as what we put our practice. Now which is a cottage industry style where we harvest You know three to four to five animals today during the winter so from December until early or the end of March and then that's been much more successful and so while I got you on the line Lloyd not often do we get to hear Asami perspective on anything but Tell tell me anything that you'd like to share about. How the Saami regard reindeer? Well it's A large part of the survival of of the of the reindeer herding communities for certain and Not only the food the clothing and the the I guess the learning about nature through Someone who could shea through the Rangers is So it's it's a you need some kind of an adaptation and and you know one has to remember that there are different factors in different places so Hurting styles and ambitious very around the Arctic. Well it's also interesting how these Species species relate to different indigenous nations. Maybe even your own you wanNA share some thoughts with US Glenn Call in one eight hundred nine nine six two eight. Four eight is news and number Lloyd binder a reindeer herder is on the line with us today. He is semi in inuit and joins us today out of Northwest Territory. Aretha Canada if you'd like to share some thoughts with him go ahead dialing one eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight hundred number are biologists is still here with us to Nick Dima And again if you have questions for him calling one eight hundred nine native right now. We're going to travel on over Fairbanks Alaska to say hello to Jodi June Abi pots. She is a caregiver hunter and she is hunt which in our pleasure to have her here. Jody welcome good morning and hearing during August. Talk a little bit of the biology little bit about the hurting side. What were you thinking Jodi? Well I listened to the biologist and some of the things thinks that he was saying I didn't know So learn things but also some things are very relatable and things that we already knew from indigenous knowledge witch so that was kind of neat to see that mirrored But I think you know Aside from the science of it you know the the care brewer just so meaningful to our people They're such a big part of our way of life for food. Security and our culture and spirituality so It's it's very important to The question nation for sure in let's breakdown some of those levels about the importance of Caribou to Guten Where would you like to start You know I guess. Just as long as I can remember you know my family has subsisted off for The caribou herds and so You know they've cut our family and our people for LINNEA and You know we're we're the Caribou people and so all of our which in communities than types.

TNT in he is molly our pleasure to have him here as well Samuel Mule. Welcome law. Thank you for having me and semi. Don't tell us a little bit about where you stand all this My the group was founded by my friend Martin to create a safe space for native Hawaiians who support TNT because we've experience the brunt of the bullying and racism online against supporters of the TNT primarily. From I'm not sure who they were in general but there are some people who are identified themselves as native Hawaiians economic me saying that we were fake Alliance for supporting the telescope and he's kind of intimidation they should tactics and you know threatening people threatening people's jobs so she wanted to create this group immoral.

I've been more of a silent supporter like many people in Hawaii and when the protests started this year or last last year now happy new year the I decided I needed to speak out now and so where I come from is a native Hawaiian. I look at this issue and I see that. This is the tel.. The thirty meter telescope is an amazing project that I support and I consent to and I think is an excellent thing and I've and we've been speaking about informed consent. I think there's much informed consent in our community on my end and I have consented to it and that's why I think it's a good thing. The the reason I support it is because number one. It is culturally consistent with our values in in Hawaii. It's about the search for knowledge it's about advancement of knowledge for human beings for mankind about sharing that quest for excellence and I think. PMT provides all all of that. And I've spoken with one of our Puna here namely Mommy Lum. WHO's the Kahuna of Hayao on Big Island? And she's taught me that the the the sacred nature amount of CARE is not such that it prohibits construction or any human use at all indeed. You know our ancestors. I use the mountain in the ways they could. They had an ads. Corey on top of Mount of care where they mind an area. That's one hundred times the size of TNT. They mind rock out of it. It's because it was. It was used for that purpose. So the sacredness of Monica as for the advancement of human knowledge and human in no. And you know human excellence. And that's one of the things we've quoted her on our website and we have a number of flyers and that's what she explained it's just that the TNT and the nature of it you know it's not even an ad score right we're not signing for weapons or for or for tool it's a thing to learn about the universe and our place in it and to study the stars and so it also continues our cultural connection to navigation and to stargazing and Tequila Hukou and just the fact that we can navigate the stars from the telescope. And that kind of way I think the titans scripted like that which I thought was really cool metaphor and so that's the that's the number one reason I think is a great thing number. Two is the benefits that the TNT provides to our community are amazing. I mean there's a one point. Four billion dollar construction costs which is going to bring. I think they said a couple of hundred jobs are into jobs. Construction and construction jobs are always that kind of spamming in your opening bid. You were talking about you know deconstruction efforts construction jobs that would provide so those are great jobs they last for ten years and then there's the jobs that will be created wants telescopes operational. I think it's something like one hundred forty jobs and then on top of that. TNT is giving a million dollars a year and scholarships and that goes into a thing called the thing for the fun goes seven hundred fifty thousand dollars to the Hawaii Community Foundation which distributed to schools and two students. And then there's another two hundred fifty thousand that goes directly to the foundation and the by nation is from my understanding. A group that gives scholarships for college only two native lions so there's that benefit specifically to our people which is excellent and and then that's in addition to the fact that EMC also it's required to give pay a million dollars in rent with a fifty fifty operational timespan and that money he goes eight hundred thousand to the Office of Management and the Office of Medicaid Management as it has had issues for sure and I think a lot of that has been brought to light by. Ah but it's also improved dramatically since nineteen ninety. When you look at the audits you see that you know? They've cleaned up their act. They're making sure that things are kept in order. They've they've established rules for the mountain now so these kinds of things have been sold and that money that eight hundred thousand dollars go to support you know protecting the Waco Kuu bug and the and the animals and the four that are on not a cat and mapping the historical sites that are on a care and keeping track of that and then another two in two thousand dollars I read goes to the Office of affairs. Fun and so Samuel when you take a look at all this in. It's great that we're hearing different information understanding about this place and where to conduct a mile. Lease stand on all of this And that's good to hear here to have this dialogue. Maybe you haven't been able to hear this kind of dialogue and you have some thoughts. Join the conversation. All opinions are welcome. One eight hundred nine six six to eight four eight is the number Samuel hang tight got a caller on the line. We're going to go ahead and say hi to Nicole A who is in Hawaii listening in online Nicole. Thank you for giving us the ring. You're on air. Yes I agree with you sir I actually unfortunately fortunately have to work in Alaska. I work in the aeronautical industry and so hard to find good stem jobs in the state of Hawaii and I also would like to show my support for T. M. T.. And I agree with you that. I'm not native Hawaiian. I agree that Hawaii was found by wait. Finders who found their way by the stars and that with the TNT with this position so close to the equator and with hot you do the clear air. You're bored US an opportunity to study the stars. Like we've never had a chance to look for with the exception of Hubble and so I also like to throw in my I support for the TMC and just respectfully ask protectors What their stances on that? I'm not unique opportunity. She's not even the Canary Islands. The alternate stories are the alternate by fourteen cheese could provide like we can here in the state of Hawaii. Okay Okay Nicole. Thanks for giving US ring in Killa. Sounds like she's talking directly to Kia on the last part of her question Do you consider yourself yourself one in any thoughts You know regarding the way finding I'm glad that use knowledge that that we are way finders One of the primary way fire finders oppo navigator nine hundred Thompson has come out about the desecration of Monica and he has said that this desecration and I mean th. This issue is about disrespecting attracting And Racism by the University to the people that's been his position there is one other wave finder who supports TNT But the majority of them and he's the leader has house actually not supported it. You know it's a false narrative to kind of frame this issue that it's like coins against point. This is really not About that and also I wanted to answer some of the things that were being said first of all as a practitioner. I am a practitioner. Actually and the Office of Management Does have its issues but one most important issues that it has is is that it continues to desecrate.

"The strongest Example of love and for his people and for his family that a man could give due to walk in the winter like that to to endure those hardships ships to leave his tribe. That's that's another thing altogether Mr Dwyer said there was about thirty of them. They had to leave their tribe puncos. Now today there's two punctures Mush Day punk is in Oklahoma was neat bunkers here in Nebraska. They had to actually split it from them and that was that was probably a difficult thing in itself just to to leave your tribe to go out on your own to very your son to face whatever you have to face you know unsure you know they knew they were basically prisoners of war and having to leave their reservation was a violation of that and so they knew that they knew and if they did that willingly to honor Son's request sure end. There are two complications too. You know down the road to which hopefully we'll have time to get into but Dwight go ahead. Finish your thought. Yeah I just think that that is a that. Just really shows the character of the man to his resilience to to walk that That that distance three times and then the last he knew he walked when with chiefs. He walked in with the tribe down. 'cause they got. They were driven down by by train. And and and carriage the chiefs were to look in advance and they were promised. If you don't like this you can go see the president president and you can you can present your case to him all the wrongdoings that have been done to you as people. So that was why they went down to look at Indian territory was the promise of if they didn't like it that they could take it to the president and that never happened and the agent left him and they walk walked back up the chiefs. Walk back up only to in May forced removal down as a tribe and then him walking back up with his son on as he said in eighteen. Seventy nine in January during the winter months. That's really That's a strong spirit rid of a man to me. In part of the reason why many people do remember him. And so Larry We get to the court case We hear the motive and I shared some of standing bear's words that he said in court That seemed seemed to be the moment or or some of the heavier parts of that trial To change the courts mine and the courts mine. Gene was changed Any other details you WANNA share about. How important how significant The words that were said what changed after that especially native Americans pins then being able to be called a person Go ahead Larry. Well the trial The reason I wrote my book was I was encouraged by a number of people to since I am a lawyer to write from a lawyer perspective and so I I do give the background or the writ of Habeas Corpus and then the witnesses testimony and lawyers closing arguments and then the judges actual decision Asia and in all footnoted and and all the references so that we know exactly what happened and what was said. It's the first time and this is what really struck me that it changed from just being something. I was researching to something where I really felt. Wow this this is powerful. My family came from Ireland in eighteen. Seventy five to work for the Union Pacific Railroad. The trial took place for years later. Omaha was only about thirty blocks in length so I had to think that some of my family live near the lawyers live near the newspaper. People ten blocks from the courthouse. Where they there and the trial and the audience I don't know but I started to feel connection? Somehow I don't have the the national connection that do I have on this issue but I felt this personal connection with my family being here in the same environment and yet I grew up not knowing about the case He. It has a major in College of of history or in law school so when I was asked to give a talk ten years ago in commemoration of the trial I started to read it on fax wchs but then I started to realize this is an historic. It's really the first civil rights victory for native Americans because of that Supreme Court case. It's that they weren't persons and therefore they had no standing in other words no right to go into federal court. Whenever they were wronged they had no place to turn to? And and we get angry at some of the tribes who to turn to war against the government but you can understand a lot of it because where else can they go. What else can they do The puck is didn't choose that fortunately because General Crook through bride is in iron I and then tables. They found two great lawyers in Omaha. John Webster and Andrew Papuan Two of the best lawyers in the city two of the best lawyers in Nebraska history and they had no precedent and this is a lawyer or something that hit me when I have an issue or a case where I don't know what's going on or I just think this is so unusual and nothing in case law or statute is helping helping me. What do I do I go to other lawyers? Have you ever had a case like this. Can you give me some influence. Can you give me some suggestions. We talk about it. It struck me John. Webster Western Andrew Jackson had no other lawyer to turn to because no other lawyer in the history of America had ever stood in their place. We go to break here to Larry but hang tight end. This was also during a time period where native Americans were not in favor of courts and many people who inhabited this country after US hang tight.
